I don't think so and in fact, the "any given Sunday" randomness about FF (just like the NFL) keeps FF players interested year in and year out. Personally, most of my friends love FF for that reason, but they wouldn't welcome an invitation to play fantasy baseball because it requires for more day-to-day dedication and if it's a roto league, the greater sense of predictability would drive them away from ever trying it.
Yes, I've stopped playing FF for a year or two. Realizing it was luck was one reason, but another reason was because I had no time to prepare for FF draft day, still putting all of my fantasy efforts on baseball. With each year, the NFL bores me to death (game too slow, too many commercial breaks) and that also played a part. I played in FF the last couple of seasons and while I was a good sport about being active, I was just disinterested in general. Last year, I had Chris Johnson and nothing else on one of my teams, added Jamaal Charles when he won the starting job in KC, and won out of a 2-6 record up until losing in the semis. It was a nice run, but I also realized it was a travesty if I did win because I didn't even give half of a half-assed effort.
