No matter how well you could possibly "plan" who you would play, you never know how anyone is going to play in any given week.
It would certainly suck if this team tanked the week you would have played them and then got hot the week you did play them, wouldn't it?
It could very well happen, too. Just play to win the current week. That's all you should ever do.
Couldn't agree more.
In hockey last year I came on like a hurricane from 7th in the second half of the season, put together by far the best team in the league and attained my goal of getting a first round bye as I finshed second (3 games out of first). During the bye week , my team's stats were ridiculous - Selanne had 14 points all by his ownself!
Fast forward to round 2 where I'm strutting in against the 6 seed: going into the weekend, my entire team had 16 points...
Needless to say, I went down, by one lousy point, but out anyway.
Play to win.
Full tilt full time.
