Warning: 3 Slow-Starting Fantasy Offenses
Slow starts in the NFL are as sure as death, taxes, and Jerry Jones restructuring bad contracts. We will soon be discussing which 0-2 team has the best chance of rebounding and who is already in the dreaded “must-win” situation. Such is the nature of overreacting to small samples. From a fantasy football perspective, this presents an opportunity to take advantage of inefficiencies of perception.
It stands to reason that teams that have undergone tumultuous offseasons, whether it’s within their coaching staff or starting lineup, will struggle in September more often than teams with year-to-year continuity. Even the most seamless-seeming transitions will have plenty of potholes in the early part of the road.
