How To BEAT The Boys At
WHAT IS FANTASY FOOTBALL?
Fantasy football is a game i which participants create an imaginary team composed of real NFL players and score points based on those players' actual statistical performance each week. Each participant is referred to as a "team owner". The team owners combine to form "the league".
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In most leagues there is a draft. The draft may be live, it may be automated, or it may be a combination of both. Each week two fantasy football team owners face off for supremacy. The team owners are awarded points based upon their NFL players real life performance during that week's game. The team owner whose NFL players accumulate the most points that week wins.
WHICH PLAYERS SHOULD I PICK?
Generally you want to draft players that are on high-scoring offenses. Your first picks are the most important. Start with a great quarterback, load up on durable running backs, and cap off your early picks with a reliable tight end or wide receiver. Last year the highest scoring players for fantasy football were Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, LeSean McCoy, Arian Foster, and Ray Rice.
WHAT ARE THE COMMON MISTAKES?
Fantasy Football is not a complicated game however there are a few things to keep in mind. First, don't forget to set your line-up each week before the NFL week starts on Thursday. Second, try not to draft players that share the same position and bye week. Last, do not abandon your team if you get off to a slow start. Remember, unexpected injury of suspension can quickly shake up the standings.
WHAT ARE SOME INSIDER TIPS?
If you have the ability to draft your team live (either in person or over the internet) do it! Don't be afraid to reference cheat sheets during the draft - there are a ton of free ones available on the internet. Finally, don't be afraid to dump well known but under-performing players for lesser known sleepers and surprise upstarts.
Now that you know.
