Dos and Don’ts – Life in Last Place

Postby Arlo » Sun Aug 21, 2005 6:58 pm

Fantasy ball is easy when you're cruising toward a title, but what should you do when you're in last? Jon Michael Cain - a fantasy vet probably more familiar with first place than the cellar - offers some sound advice.

Enjoy! ;-D

Same here. :-?

Anyhow, still a good read and I completely agree that if you don't win, at least go back and learn from your mistakes. ;-D

Hmm, a Giants fan writing an article about last place...coincidence?

I joke, I joke.

All in all, a timely article. I knew roughly a month ago that I had no chance at first place in my league but still kept fourth place in my sights as a goal (the first three places are about 30 points ahead). That may not sound like much but at the time I was in seventh place. Guess where I am now? Yep, in fourth place, so it's important to still find a way to keep my team competitive in the league.
