What is Fantasy Football?

So, you want to know what all the fuss is about fantasy football? It’s the ultimate test of how well you really know the game. Fantasy football is about putting together a team of players better than anyone else in your league. You draft a team of NFL players just like the GM of your favorite NFL squad, set your lineup for the week/weekend – players you think will play the best – and then kick back, relax and enjoy the games. Whichever team’s players rack up the most yardage and touchdowns walks away the winner.

The beauty of fantasy football is the flexibility. You can play in the most simplistic league imaginable where only touchdowns count for points or you can make it incredibly complex with half points for catches and decimals for yardage. The choice is yours and that’s what gets people fired up – that and football is really fun to watch.

During the last few years, a new style of fantasy football has emerged that differs from the traditional season-long style. This new version is called Daily Fantasy because it allows you to draft a new team every day. So instead of picking your team before the season and making adjustments over the course of the NFL year, you draft a new squad every weekend and put them to the test. Either way you decide to play, you’re going to have a great time – and if you can’t decide which one is right for you, play both!
