Take a moment to digest this.

Scrambling for your bye fill-ins isn't often a problem. You pick from a few players who are available. You fill your vacant spot or two. You hope that your regular lineup does the usual and your clever stabs beget the fantasy points to affirm your fake-football brilliance.

If you took a gander at that grid, you realized that you're probably going to be fighting a few owners in your league for the prime scraps that make a victory in Week 7 possible.

Or, you just said to yourself, Oh s---.

Tight end doesn't look like it'll be much of a problem. Your backups at one position or another may suffice. And you may have drafted so well and worked the wire so successfully that you're deep enough not to have to worry.

But if you're not staring at a roster that has enough playing players in Week 7, you're in it, deep. And if you're just not comfortable fielding some of them because they don't satisfy the requirements of your ambition, then it's time to re-evaluate. Soon. Very soon.

(Like, tomorrow, and the day after that.)
