This Friday the FHL scoreboard reflects Team Fitzgerald leading the league in weekly points and on average leads all teams by at least a dozen points and has earned a 33.7 lead over East Division rival Team Beaulieu in their weekly matchup.
The number one team in the league Downton Flyers scored over 20 points last night to increase their lead to 27.5 points over Team Beaty in this week’s inter-division battle.
In a struggle to earn their first weekly matchup victory, West Division teams Buffalo Winter and Team Iglesias are scoring above average and are separated by 16.2 points going into tonight’s three NHL games.
The East Division’s second-place team, Team ALEX and third-place team, Buffalo Sabres are both undefeated and are earning similar daily scores, but Team ALEX could be even closer than the 8.2 points that separate these two teams if they managed their roster.
The West Division leaders first place team Doughty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and second place team, Team Borowicz are 10 points apart exactly and both are earning below-average daily scores this week.
To manage an FHL successfully you have to be willing to give five or ten minutes a day to manage the team roster, the example used today from a team in our FHL is for training purposes only, not to mock but for all fantasy managers to gain valuable experience from.
We can observe that there are three open forward spots in the lineup to be filled and there are three eligible forwards on the bench, never minding about the goaltenders because playing them or not is a tough choice for any team manager.
The three eligible forwards on the bench combined have a 5.2 score that would have brought this team within three points of their opponent, SSPD players need to be on the bench, and DTD players can right up to their opening faceoff be on the bench.
Finally, endeavour to not leave an open slot in your lineup especially when you have eligible players on the bench. Life gets in the way and life is more important than any fantasy team or league, but a few moments a day can keep your FHL team relevant.
