Welcome to the third edition of Leverage for the 2021-2022 NFL Season!
My goal in this space is to make you a better GPP player by highlighting concepts that can help you differentiate from your opponents and climb the leaderboard. Each week, I will highlight some of the thought process or strategy that goes into my approach when making tournament lineups. I’ll then use some specific examples from that week to help illustrate how I intend to implement those concepts into my own GPP lineups. The examples I highlight will be in my portfolio of lineups, but if you want to improve considerably as a GPP player, mastering the concepts are more important than copying the answers.
In the second edition of Leverage, we touched on how to maximize late swap, particularly on a slate loaded with compelling options in the late games. The week played out in a way that really rewarded those who emphasized the flexibility of making lineups with additional information. The early games created few players who separated from the field, and those who did were heavily utilized by your opponents (Cooper Kupp, Najee Harris, etc). Those who correctly pivoted off of Cowboys-Chargers revitalized their lineups as the best game environment of the week failed to live up to expectations while all the other late games around it were filled with ceiling fantasy performances. We may not get another week all season that sets up as well as Week 2 for creating an edge through late swap, but hopefully the concepts discussed in Leverage help you build a foundation to improve your late swap process even in murkier situations.
