The Concept of Fantasy Football By Eric VanRemortel
What is Fantasy Football? Fantasy Football is a game where you can create your own football team and compete with other owners such as yourself based on your team’s statistics from week to week.
Starting Fantasy Football • Find some friends to play with you. • Develop a draft with your friends. • Develop a schedule for the whole season. • Develop a scoring system to score your weekly play. Here are the ways to start your own league.
Draft Method The easiest way to create a draft is to simply draw numbers out of a hat and determine the draft order. Of course the number one pick is the best. Then simply pick players to fill the positions of the roster.
Quarterback Scoring System • 1 point per 25 yards passing • 4 points per passing touchdown • 6 points per rushing touchdown • 1 point per 10 yards rushing
Running Back Scoring System • 1 point per 10 yards rushing • 1 point per 10 yards receiving • 6 points per rushing touchdown • 6 points per receiving touchdown
Wide Receiver and Tight End Scoring System • 1 point per 10 yards receiving • 6 points per receiving touchdown
Kicker Scoring System • 3 points per field goal • 1 point per extra point
