Subs, or substitutes, in fantasy sports are players who are not part of the starting lineup for a given period but are kept on the bench. These players can be swapped into the starting lineup to replace starters who might be injured, suspended, or facing tough matchups. The subs provide flexibility and a safety net for fantasy players.
Effective management of subs is key to success in fantasy sports. It involves not just picking the right starters, but also having a strong bench that can step in when needed. Good substitutes can make a significant difference during bye weeks, injuries, or unexpected slumps in form of starters.
