We all love to be right.
In fantasy, that manifests in choosing the optimal lineup each week regardless of what your highest score could be. It could be a team with a lower possible score beating the team with the higher possible score. It could be a team with the highest possible score competing for name-changing rights for the following week.
Being right in fantasy comes into play when trades are made. Did you expect the guy to fall off production? Did you think the draft pick you got is going to be your next stud? It’s being right about a guy when you hold onto him despite 0-3 points every week for two years and then BAM he gets the starting job.
But we’re not always right. In fact, we’re wrong a fair amount of the time. Even when we’re so sure of ourselves, it doesn’t work out.
