Success in fantasy football takes a lot of research. But I’ll be the first one to tell you that it can be all about luck at times.
Case in point: I made the postseason in seven of my 10 leagues, but the team I thought had the best shot at a championship — at least on paper — is going to get knocked out of the playoffs because of Broncos WR Brandon Marshall.
He set an NFL single-game record with 21 receptions and added 200 yards receiving with two touchdowns, scoring 53 fantasy points against me (yes, it’s a PPR league).
Why couldn’t I have played the team that had Patriots WR Randy Moss, who scored one point? Oh well — you win some, you lose some.
But man does it smart when you lose because of bad luck.
