Fantasy football is in full swing, and that means it’s time for the three worst people in your fantasy football league.

There are few distinct qualities that can be attached to these three types of people. Here they are.

1) They overreact after week one.

The first week isn’t even over yet, and I’ve already got people complaining about how their team sucks. Of course, they never blame themselves. No, it’s always some third party’s fault for why their team doesn’t appear to be a winning unit. They got screwed in the draft, the actual NFL is screwing them or ESPN didn’t give good enough draft insight on players. They never blame themselves for not doing enough research or setting the correct lineup. If you’ve got a guy on the bench who scores 30 points, well, that’s on you. Nobody else sets your lineup. I’m going to be 1-1 in my two leagues after the first week. Is it where I wanted to be? No, but I also don’t think it’s the end of the world.

2) They never pay on time.

Nothing is more annoying than having to chase down money once the season has started. I understand there are occasions where guys forget or just aren’t around for a while. There is no excuse, however, to not having your money weeks on end.

3) They don’t set their lineup.

You shouldn’t be in a fantasy football league if you don’t have the necessary three minutes a week to set your lineup. It’s not overly difficult. One person not taking the league serious becomes a drain on the morale for everybody. Don’t be this guy.
