What's more agony: Making a draft pick each round or making a critical Start/Bench decision each week?
My answer: The Start/Bench decision.
I lost a game one week because i benched Brandon Marshall because the Bears were on the road against the Cowboys and the Cowboys D hadn't given up a TD reception all year. I played Leonard Hankerson instead for 7 catches for like 57 yards. Not bad, but nothing compared to what Brandon Marshall did.
If I didn't pay attention to the "Bust Alerts" from the fantasy wiseguys, I would have won my game.
Lot of people must agonize over Start/Bench decisions because I always see comments in the comment thread for someone's help in choosing 1 player out of this group of 3-4 players or choose 2 players out of this group of 3-4 players.
These Start/Bench decisions are brutal.
You make the right call and it's optimal, you don't get credit.
You make the wrong call, and you lose, you're stoopid.
