In-Season Strategy: How to Play the Final Week

Jeff Edgerton

Jeff has provided sports content for CBS Sports, Fox Sports and Bleacher Report and has played fantasy sports since scores had to be tabulated via newspaper. He started working with RotoWire in 2017. Originally from South Carolina, he's a lifelong Clemson fan now enjoying the sun in Los Angeles.

The final week of the regular season is a veritable minefield of potential pitfalls for both season-long and DFS players.

The combination of playoff-bound teams resting players, other squads jockeying for a better seed, and numerous franchises kicking the tires on younger players with nothing to play for makes for a roller-coaster ride with a lot of variance. If someone tells you they possess all the answers for the final week, they’re either delusional or they own a time machine.

But I do have some ideas that can help bring this confusing week into focus. You’ll often find yourself going against your best instincts and fading players that you’d usually chalk up, while considering players you’ve never played before. Rest assured, there’s method to the madness!
