Why it pays to practice patience in fantasy football

Fantasy football players are among the most impatient folks around but they do deserve credit when they make the right moves. There was certainly every reason for concern in trusting the struggling running backs that finished last season second and third in the NFL in rushing yards. Chicago Bears sophomore Jordan Howard rushed for seven yards in Week 2 as he dealt with a shoulder injury. Tennessee Titans veteran DeMarco Murray and his sore hamstring rushed for 25 yards last week and similarly wasn’t projected for greatness in Sunday’s Week 3.
