We have finally gotten ourselves in a position to bring home a championship. In my previous articles, I went over how to get yourself into a position to win your league. Starting with the draft, trading advice, free-agent pickups, and drops, and now we have to finish. In this article, I will show you what you need to do to put yourself in the best position possible to win your league.
So we have made it to the playoffs, now is the time to put the pedal to the medal! Do not just coast once you make the playoffs. We need to continue to be aggressive. The most important thing for you to do is play defense in your waiver wire. I mean by that is to make sure the other owners don’t acquire any players that will make their squad better. Continue to cycle out the bottom of your roster to ensure you are grabbing these hot waiver wire adds. You don’t even have to start these players; you’re just making sure nobody else gets them.
The next thing needs to be done for the entirety of the season, especially during the playoffs. It would help if you watched as many games as possible; I watch the game re-winds where there are no commercials and show the game quickly. Takes about 20 minutes. This way, you can personally see the rotations the teams are using and how they perform rather than looking at a boxscore. Go online and read fantasy basketball articles and news. Check out the DFS sites; they do 90% of the work for you if you take the time to read their information. And lastly, listen to NBA radio or anything NBA related. The more information you indulge in, the better off you are.
Lastly, there are a couple of small things to keep an eye on. Towards the end of the season, some teams will start to give their younger players extended run. And teams that lock into the playoffs will have their stars rest more than normal. Make sure you identify these players, especially the young kids getting extra run because they will be hot waiver adds. Make sure you are playing the maximum amount of games your league settings allow you. You don’t want to be in a situation where your opponent has 4 extra games on your squad. Don’t let all your hard work get put to waste! I appreciate you taking the time to read my article! Don’t forget to check out dynasty sports empires dynasty leagues!
