Fantasy baseball drafting season has concluded. With the start of meaningful MLB games, important considerations that have occupied an outsized portion of our collective consciousness – positional ranks, tiers and targets, sleepers and busts, and ADPs and AAVs – are fading into the deepest recesses of our minds. Now, the real grind begins.

Some fantasy managers spend a considerable amount of time focusing on their FAAB targets and bids for the upcoming week. Being proficient in FAAB is critical to success in NFBC leagues and, thus, such time is well spent. It is a bad process, however, to give short shrift to the drop side of such transactions. The “wrong” drop often can hurt a fantasy team as much as (if not more) than the “right” acquisition can help a team. A bad drop can also be devastating psychologically because a manager chose to discard the player who later excels (and whose improved performance serves as a daily reminder of what could have been). Unfortunately, if using FAAB actively – as one should – to try to improve your roster every week, managers will experience regrettable drops from time to time. While impossible to avoid them entirely, with increased attention and careful consideration, managers can reduce the number of regrettable drops they experience during the course of a season.
