Fantasy football has been around for a long time now. I’ve been playing with friends since 2004, but there are leagues that go back even longer. If you’ve never played, it’s basically a way for you to try your luck as an NFL general manager and to build your own team of players. There is a draft where each team picks players in order to fill out a roster. Each week you put your best players in the starting lineup and you earn points based on how those players perform in their actual game that week.
