Know your players inside and out by tracking them in the news

Last updated:

If you want to have fantasy football success, you need to keep track of your players.

And an even smarter fantasy football owner will keep track of every player in the league.

Find some time each week — every day, if you can — to read news from around the NFL that gives insight and analysis about the status of your players.

Maybe you’ll find a quote from one of your player’s head coaches that lets you know where he stands on the team. Maybe you’ll learn of an injury that will tip you off on who to go claim on the waiver wire. Maybe you’ll read about one player who figures to get more touches in the coming weeks and thus will become more valuable.

Knowledge is power and you can never get enough information.
