Your team is probably going to suck if your star player gets injured, and it's going to be dreadful if he's hurt more than once. If you're really unlucky, then you'll pick up another star player and wait until he get's injured too.

You Were Just Unlucky About Who You Played



There's is a small chance that your fantasy team doesn't actually suck. Maybe you did great all season, but every week someone else did just a little better. If that's the case, at least you can take solace in knowing that it isn't your fault. On the other hand, it's pretty clear that the fantasy football gods hate you and are taking there vengeance out on your team.

All Your Starters Are Now on IR



This one probably isn't your fault. This season has been riddled with injuries, and if half your team is on IR, just accept the fact that you weren't meant to win this year.

You Completely Wasted Your First Picks


There were plenty of awful first and second round picks this year. Of course, this isn't all your fault. A bunch of star players have been major disappointments in fantasy. Who could've have guessed that some of them would end up being so bad this season? The reason your team sucks is that you're still starting these guys every week.
