Is Targeting High Players from High Profile Teams Always a Good Idea?

The NFL season is closing in more and more every day, and with it fantasy football fans are looking at various NFL odds to see what teams are going to be at or near the top for the 2017 season.

There’s always the same set of question marks year after year with fantasy football, and that’s talking about if fantasy experts are really right in going after high profile players on high profile teams.

Usually the most successful teams are the ones able to balance some big name players, but also ones that can find players on lower teams that, after all, need to have good players.

While teams like the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and Los Angeles Rams are all expected to be near the bottom of their divisions in 2017, there’s still some solid players on each team that you have to take a look at.

This doesn’t mean that you should simply take good players on bad teams, it just means be smart when you are looking around the league at a diverse mix of players from all 32 NFL teams.

While it’s always great to have a player like Tom Brady or Ezekiel Elliott, don’t forget that there’s a good chance that when it counts the most, in your leagues title week, that the Pats and Cowboys won’t be playing their stars as they will probably have their divisions wrapped up and will sit their stars (for a least 2-3 quarters).

The NFL is a vast land with players all over the place that can be of value for you. You need to make sure that you look at all 32 teams, make right and fair assessments and not be in love with nothing more than players from the top 3-4 teams from around the league.

There’s value in those bad teams as well, just make sure you do your homework and find them.
