1, Waiver Wire: Don't be afraid to pick up and drop kickers and defenses on a weekly basis. Weekly projections are available in multiple spots. You are leaving points on the table if you are lazy and don't do your homework.
2. Don't Make Assumptions: The example here I'll give is Larry Fitzgerald. No one will doubt Fitz is one of the best receivers in football. The problem is he has no one to throw him the ball rendering him meaningless and on your bench in the playoffs. Don't assume a name should be in your starting lineups.
3. Play Match-ups: In larger leagues or spots where you start a flex position, this strategy is going to take you far in the playoffs. A guy like TY Hilton is a perfect example of a guy that can score major points catching balls from a hot quarterback like Andrew Luck.
4. Watch "Real" Playoff Teams: With Houston and Atlanta a week or two from claiming home field advantage throughout the playoffs, the real possibility looms of a shortened work load in weeks 15 and 16 for some of the NFL's highest fantasy producers. Keep your eyes on Arian Foster, look at Ben Tate as a pick-up. Matt Ryan will also receive some rest once the Georgia Dome has been confirmed.
5. Talk Trash & Enjoy the Ride: There is nothing better in the fantasy playoffs than talking a little smack to fellow owners. Face it, you might be the smartest guy north, south, east or west of Charch. The world needs to know it.
The money and a championship is two to three weeks from reality.
Enjoy the season!!!
