In my league we have certain people who are always good owners and a handfull of baby seals. I would say good management / draft *should* get you to the playoffs. Once in the playoffs where its do or die...luck plays a huge role. Take brees this past week as an example. Normally he's nails all season long...1 performance like that in fantasy playoffs and the owner is likely out.
Great points. Certainly cannot disagree especially about luck in the playoffs. I won the finals two years ago by 1 point and a year ago by like 3 points. Definitely a little luck there.
