It is definitely crunch time across fantasy nation and the start of the NFL pre-season isn't helping one focus. Teams that have a shot at finishing "in the money" will find the time, but its the rest that you should be worried about. As owners give up on the 2013 Fantasy Baseball season and turn their attention to football, their rosters often lag from inattention. This is not a new issue and there is nothing that can really be done about it. As prospects are called up, especially after September 1st, rebuilding fantasy franchises will be looking to add to their '14 rosters, which is best case for keeping everyone involved.
Is it time to panic yet? We are still early enough in the campaign where players remain available that can possibly help you in the long term. This week we have a mixture of young, emerging talent mixed with veterans returning from the disabled list and the minors. There are long shots with upside and phenoms, either making their first appearance, or getting a second chance.
