Bring the action.
You can love it or hate it but fantasy football is a whole season in itself. It’s almost unavoidable.
Even if you choose not to join fantasy football you probably know someone who has decided to join and make a league.
There’s something about the National Football League that brings all sports fans together.
Whether you are a soccer fan, baseball fan or just die-hard 100% american football fan— the NFL fantasy league brings wide diverse groups together to make what we so call “our teams” or “our league.”

Don’t take it personal
Fantasy football is all about taking risks and making smart decisions in drafting players.
On draft night some people can get really lucky with first picks or you can be that guy/girl who picks last.
For example, I wanted of course Aaron Rodgers as my quarterback but someone immediately drafted him for the first pick.
*Some friendships may be jeopardized while playing fantasy football.
It’s a competition and not always a friendly competition.
Everyone wants to win with the most fantasy points at the end (especially more intense when teams play for a cash prize).
Call it like it is. It’s a phenomenon.
For those who don’t already know there is a fantasy football show called “The League” that airs on FX.
The show is already in its last and final season after being on for six previous years.
The League involves a group of friends who scheme, prank, trash-talk throughout the fantasy football season.
It’s a great show to see the depths of how important fantasy football is for most people.
“God bless fantasy football. There are many things a man can do with his time… this is better than those things.” –
(Pete from “The League”)
“I absolutely love the energy that comes from a group of friends all fighting over the best pick in fantasy.” —Sportschic
If you’ve been playing fantasy football for years or you’re a newbie I encourage you to stay active and watch all the NFL games you can.
Even if you don’t have a favorite team it’s still fun to make a league and watch games just to keep up with the players you drafted.
I promise you it’ll be worth the dedication.
Remember to keep calm and play fantasy football…it’s just fantasy people.
