Fantasy Football is difficult, you need a good draft strategy, smart moves, and some luck with injuries. I lost my 1st 2nd and 3rd rd picks in one league and still went 9-4 and just won to get into the championship because I made solid waiver pickups.
I make money almost every year playing fantasy football. I got into 5 paid leagues this year. I'm in two Superbowls next week and in first place in a total points for the league year which is a $200 buy in which I'm the defending champion. First pays $1100. I believe that an all points league is the best because it shows true ownership over the course of an entire season, not just one bad week and it costs you big. I've only had one season where I didn't break even.
It seems to me your draft strategy is either not adaptive to the rules that are in place or you are just a weekend warrior that likes to get together with buddies and get a team. To make money you have to know how to work the waiver wire, make trades, and start optimal players based on matchups, targets, snap ct, turf or grass, etc.
Let me know if you are in a standard scoring league or PPR. Do QB's get 4 pts for TD or 6. Bonus pts for 100 yds etc. These rules have a huge effect on which rds to target which positions. If you're open to it, i'll be glad to give any advice so next year you can make it into the championship. The money is always great, but the bragging rights over buddies is even better.
Also there are usually 2 guys in every league that never make the playoffs or win money. they are called donators and hopefully this isn't you but every league has these 2 players.
