Fantasy Football is upon us, and while you may have that giddy night-before-Christmas feeling, let’s not forget how frustrating it can get.

1. Benching a player who ends up having a career-high game.

“I’m a 50 point underdog. Peyton, you got this, right?”

3. Collecting money from your flaky league members.

The worst. Luckily, Tilt.com partnered with ESPN this month to make collecting league dues a Brees (pun INTENDED).

4. One of your star players gets injured (or arrested).

6. That league member who sends you 25 texts about a proposed trade.

No, you cannot have Adrian Peterson.

7. Joining the obligatory, expensive work league that you never win because you don’t care enough.

10. When the guy who auto-drafts and never sets his lineup ends up making the playoffs and you don’t.

Well, it’s not like I spent hours of my life managing my team or anything.

11. Being comfortably ahead in points when going to bed, waking up to see you’ve lost.
