May and June are generally my “mess around with this list” months. I go through all the players and adjust just by eyeballing them. All the injured players get reset for next season. All the overachievers get brought back down to earth. All the underachievers get a bit of a boost. Young players generally get an uptick while the aging vets get a knock downward. I don’t dive into each player for hours – they each get about a minute, and I go with my gut. The July/August rankings are where every player get fully audited thanks to the in-depth analysis that the Fantasy Guide requires. This month I adjusted the pending unrestricted free agents, plus a couple of injuries.

As always, players between +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal value and at that point are a matter of team needs or personal bias.
