Not only that, things can change drastically between seasons: Running backs used to be the backbone of any successful fantasy lineup,  Teddy Bridgewater used to be able to put on his pants without the help of an intern, etc.

In fact, from season to season, the numbers for fantasy football season vary almost as much as the number of intact bones inside Tony Romo’s body.
