It is ok to take the one or two players that are going to be extremely popular instead of trying to convince yourself that you will get leverage against the competition by not playing those players.
Take this week, Najee Harris is going to be extremely popular at just $6,100 in salary. There’s a lot of reasons to like Harris this week, most notably that he was on the field for nearly 100% of the plays, is facing a favorable matchup in Las Vegas compared to the Buffalo matchup he had last week, and his price is too cheap.
