... or suffer the consequences. One of our immutable laws of fantasy football is, "No Friday trades". This means:

Unless there is actionable intelligence - an injury, a suspension, or a manager coming out and saying something concrete - don't make changes to your team on Friday. You've likely already processed all the usable information during the week, and remember you've set most of your team on the barn door - that time between when the game locks down for the week and when points and prices update based on the week's games.

Of course, this is hard to do. One can get caught up in all the previews and prognostications and the temptation to out-smart the room becomes overwhelming. But...

DON'T DO IT!

For example, don't sell Carlos Tevez and Eden Hazard at the last minute for Juan Mata and Pavel Pogrebnyak. I mean really... DON'T DO IT.

Learn from my mistakes.
