Allstar break cured me of my burnout.

now i'm highly active.

just did a trade also, getting new players always gets me more into it again.

I'm on cruise control for most of my teams, there's a couple that I'm still checking and messing around with.

If you are in fact on cruise control, try to make at least one or two days a week where you go through all your teams. Check how your players have done the last week, check how the players on the WW have done. Less burnout this way, and still are paying at least some attention to your team.

No burnout here. Contract league, so we always have new young guys coming up to grab for next year and beyond, so even the bottom half of the league has to stay attentive if not exactly active. It really gets fun once the Sep callups start.

I'm burning out a little. It may be from my lack of success in any of my leagues, as drafting turned out to be an utter nightmare, and trading even worse. I'm not used to being out of the top three in my leagues, let alone, sitting in the bottom three. Thank god for my one Yahoo public that I did on a whim, and didn't draft any of my favorites to draft (Schilling, Nomar, etc.) so I'm pounding that league.

Off topic and sorry for the hijack, but I always play to win now. ;-D

The future will take care of itself. B-)

I find my annual November-December hiatus is sufficient to recharge through the next year. Been playing off and on (mostly on) since '89, and never suffered in-season burnout.
Some factors that help:
*limit number of leagues (I'm in a career-high 2 leagues this year)
*be competitive in a competitive league (2nd and charging in my 14-team H2H; 1st and trying to hold off a charge in my 16-team roto ... I'm looking at you, NZF ;-))
*include, um, incentive (even a modest payout can do wonders)
