This year we’d like to create a private league, whereby we know all the other team owners – makes it a bit more fun and competitive!
Felix, myself, my brother and a friend of ours are already in, so we need to find 8 more team owners – anyone interested?
If you have not played before, it’s good fun and NFL.com’s version is one of the best out there. It’s completely FREE and you can do so much with it, it’s ridiculous.
It starts off with a draft. Unlike UK fantasy football, run by the newspapers and such like, only one team in a league can own a player. So there is plenty of competition and strategy to nab the best players. But who do you go for first – a top QB like Manning or a RB like Tomlinson?? Who will still be there by the time its your turn to pick again???
Then throughout the year you have to pick a team to play against your opponents – but what do you do when your top receiver gets injured, who do you trade with or is there a Free Agent you can pick up?? Will you win enough games to make the playoffs? And can you score enough points when it counts to win the Superbowl??
It’s all possible with NFL.com Fantasy Football.
Yes, it’s a little early – the season doesn’t start until September, but we need to book in a draft slot soon as it gets a little busy and we want to be able to choose the time and day to make our selections.
WARNING: This can seriously take over your life. You have to be checking your team on a regular basis if you want to win. Once a week might not be enough (I do it daily).
The worse thing that can happen is an owner starts a team, but by Week 4 can’t be bothered to carry on because he has lost a few games – so only sign up if you’re sure you can commit to a 16 week season.
No need to register yet – I’ll tell you where to go and what to do once we have created the league online. All I need to know now is who is interested?
