Fantasy Football Rosters

You stare at them over and over, trying to figure out a way to get the most out of them. Sometimes it seems like fantasy football rosters are dragging a team owner down, but all owners should remember that fantasy football rosters are not set in stone. Trades, free agent pickups and injuries can open things up - for good and bad.

The first time fantasy football rosters are available can be pretty exciting. After concluding a fantasy football draft, the league commissioner - or computer depending on what kind of league you're playing in - will gather up all the draft picks and assign them to the proper teams. Finally, after weeks and maybe months of planning, the fantasy football rosters are set. You take a look at your quarterback, running back, receivers and defense and kickers and think you're ready for the season.

But things can change quickly for fantasy football rosters. In fact, sometimes they can change before the season. A good idea is to set your fantasy football draft after a couple of exhibition games just to make sure there are no devastating preseason injuries.

A few years ago, many fantasy football rosters featured Michael Vick after the two-way quarterback led the Falcons to the NFC championship game. Those fantasy football rosters had to be readjusted after Vick broke a bone in his leg during the preseason. People who had him on their preliminary fantasy football rosters had to go searching for a replacement. Because the injury happened after most drafts, emergency backups had to be found.

During the season, fantasy football rosters can change on a weekly or even daily basis. That's because players emerge as excellent players or busts. As these players reveal their true nature, it's important to adjust. This will lead to lots of trade offers and possible free agent pickups. Be careful! One of the worst feelings is cutting a player from fantasy football rosters only to see him get picked up by another fantasy football league team and watch that player explode for hundreds of yards.
