Collette Calls: September Matters

Collette Calls: September Matters

This article is part of our Collette Calls series.

I am well aware that it is fantasy football draft season. I have two drafts in the next six days and am leaning HEAVILY on our draft resources here at RotoWire because I have given football very little attention this summer as I am having one of my best fantasy baseball seasons in recent memory with multiple teams in contention for a league title.  I know that does not apply to some reading this installment, but just because your team might not have a chance at winning means that you can ignore your baseball team. You are likely in a league with friends, so bragging rights are out there. You might have a fun league where the last place team has an extra penalty of a financial or embarrassing nature. This week, we were asked to opine on advice for the stretch run in the Tout Table, and I offered up this advice:

Do what you can to impact the standings wherever you can, even if you're out of contention for the title. If you can impact the overall race by adjusting your lineup to focus on a particular area, it makes the league more entertaining. There is nothing more infuriating than watching teams give up and move onto that devil sport foosball when they can still make a difference in the final outcome of the league.

September matters. Your team might not be able to win the league, but you can make an impact in the final standings
