For those of you who are struggling this season, wouldn’t it be great to go back and re-do your Fantasy draft? Imagine the things you would change. 

I looked at the draft results of one 12-team PPR league where I’m 1-4, and there are many mistakes I would love to correct. For example, I drafted Robert Woods in Round 3 over Chris Godwin and Amari Cooper

At the time of this draft in late August, Cooper was dealing with a foot injury, but I would love to have either Godwin or Cooper over Woods. I also took Woods over Cooper Kupp.

In Round 6, I drafted Aaron Rodgers, and I never take a quarterback early. But here, I went against my usual tendencies, which stings even more since Rodgers has struggled early in the season.

In Round 10, I drafted Jamison Crowder one spot ahead of Michael Gallup. I didn’t expect Gallup to be this good, and Crowder has struggled with Sam Darnold out. We’ll see if the outlook changes for Crowder now that Darnold is back, but I would obviously rather have Gallup for the rest of the season among these two receivers.

Now, I also did some good things with this roster, but some bad luck has put me at three games under .500. I’m still confident I can turn this team around and compete for a playoff spot, but I need to win this week.

I’m sure many of you are in a similar position, and hopefully Week 6 brings some good fortune. If you have some time, go back and look at some of the mistakes you made on Draft Day, and imagine what could have been with your team this year.
