There’s no reason to panic after Week 1. But many of you are, especially if a star player on your roster struggled. By Tuesday afternoon, I was already asked by someone if they should drop Mike Evans. Someone also asked me if they should add Vernon Davis for O.J. Howard. Unfortunately, I don’t play in leagues with people who make moves like that, but hopefully you do. And you should take advantage of the panic. 

I get it, being 0-1 stinks. You came out of your draft feeling confident about your Fantasy team, and you thought you built a championship roster. Guess what – you might have. But just because you lost in Week 1, it doesn’t mean your season is over. This is just the beginning, and a lot will happen over the next several weeks.

Now, injuries were a problem in Week 1, and we lost several star players for several games, including Tyreek Hill (collarbone), Tevin Coleman (ankle), Hunter Henry (knee) and Derrius Guice (knee). Those situations are frustrating, and hopefully you were able to make moves on the waiver wire for reinforcements.

We’ll do our best to give you suggestions on replacement options, and also guide you toward the right lineup moves for Week 2. For those of you who started 0-1, we don’t want to see this become a losing streak.

But remember, even if you lose again this week, your season is not over. You can make trades and add/drops to turn things around. Just don’t do something hasty and drop a player like Evans or Howard out of frustration. That’s a panic move and would obviously be a huge mistake.

Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em
