Run 'N' Shoot: Adjusting Expectations

Mark Stopa has been sharing his fantasy insights for Rotowire since 2007. Mark is the 2010 and 2012 Staff Picks champion (eat your heart out, Chris Liss) and won Rotowire's 14-team Staff League II in consecutive seasons. He roots for the Bills and has season tickets on the second row, press level to the Rays.

It's hard to change a firmly-held belief. Sometimes, it takes being hit over the head with a sledgehammer to adjust our expectations. Take, for instance, the Texans. Even after losing three straight games (on the heels of two close wins against mediocre teams), everyone thought they'd beat the lowly Rams. Vegas had Houston as a seven-point favorite, and all five of us in Staff Picks laid the points. Only now that the Rams blew out the Texans is everyone recalibrating. "Wow, the Texans aren't as good as we thought - it's time to adjust our expectations."
