Whether you are a financial guru or don’t even know how to read a stock ticker, understanding financial investment strategies can help you improve your Fantasy Football skills in 2015.

Outside of my own personal research, I have very little experience in the stock market. Before I made my first investments, however, I realized that a lot of the concepts and principles of successful investors were concepts and principles I personally used in my own Fantasy Football leagues!
When I first started playing Fantasy Football, I really struggled with identifying risk. It always seemed that I selected the wrong players in my early rounds, and I had to fight to survive through waivers. This really did help my waiver wire skills, but I needed to put myself in a better position at the start of each season.
Slowly, I learned the type of players who were worth taking a chance on and those who weren’t. I also learned how to spot value in the later parts of my draft, and my improved skills were one of the reasons I was a top-40 finisher in the 2014 RotowBowl. While everyone else avoided Rob Gronkowski, I drafted him in Round 3 and backed him up with Greg Olsen. Fantasy players wouldn’t draft Arian Foster even if you paid them to in 2014, so I was able to land him in Round 4. I also thought Andrew Luck was greatly undervalued, and selected him in Round 5.
In my latest ebook, “The Smart Fantasy Football Investor: 2015 Edition,” I place a huge focus on correctly identifying the risks you should avoid. While I discuss specific players to watch in 2015, my hope is that you can apply these concepts throughout your Fantasy Football career.
I understand that those who aren’t into investing can find the concepts and terminology of the stock market confusing, but I present everything in an easy and straightforward manner.
