Fantasy basketball New Year's resolutions for 2019

This is the time of year when everything starts over, starts fresh. All those goals, those plans, those things you've been meaning to do for months ... now's the time to get started. The gyms are flooded this week with folks who have decided that now is the time to get in shape. Food plans with words like "keto" and "DASH" are starting up hot and heavy around the country. Books are being started, money-saving plans abound, and social media behavior is changing. For this week, and this week only, all things are possible.

Fantasy sports should get in on the action as well.

The NFL regular season is officially over, which means that season-long fantasy football is done. For many people, this is the "unofficial" start to basketball season, as the NBA and NHL will run the professional team-sport landscape for the next several months. For those already in fantasy basketball leagues, now is a great time to bear down and really dig into your squads.

For those who aren't in a fantasy basketball league yet, now's a great time to start one. And for those who have been focused on your fantasy basketball teams all season, you might have learned some lessons already to use moving forward. Whichever camp you fall into, it's a great time to make some changes.

I'm no different -- I've got a lot of things that I'd like to change on my fantasy basketball front. So, without further ado, let's go through my fantasy basketball New Year's resolutions for 2019. Some of them might have a bit of seriousness in them ... and some might just be for fun. Let's get it!
