Fantasy Football 101 How to Get Started

Here's a snapshot of what happens in a fantasy football season:

  1. You join a league.

    You can join a public league, where anyone can sign up for a spot, or a private league, where you need an invitation to play. Some people play just for fun and some play for money (in some cases, serious coin). League selection is an important factor, so don't take it lightly.

  2. You prepare for your league draft by scouting players.

    Before choosing your fantasy team, you need to research all the available players so you can pre-rank them according to your personal preference.

  3. You build your fantasy team via the draft.

    The draft is the most fun and exciting day of the fantasy season. During the draft, each fantasy owner selects on NFL player at a time until the rosters are complete.

  4. Your team competes against another team every week.

    During the NFL season, the real teams face each other and so do the fantasy teams in your league. The players' real-time stats are converted into fantasy points by your league provider, and the fantasy team that scores the most points wins the game for the week.

  5. You make moves to improve your team.

    As a fantasy owner, you're in total control. You can drop players you think aren't good enough and replace them with free agents. If one of your starters gets injured, you can bench him and start a healthy player instead. You may even make a trade offer to another owner.

  6. Your team (hopefully) makes the playoffs and wins your league.

    Only the strong survive, and at the end of the fantasy season, the top teams square off in a playoff tournament to decide the league champion. The last team standing may win a trophy, a cash prize, or just honor; but make no mistake, there will be only one winner.
