What Is Fantasy Football?

You decide what players you want, through a draft or auto pick. Most leagues are composed of 8-16 unique fantasy teams featuring at least two quarterbacks, three running backs, three wide receivers, two tight ends, one kicker and two defensive units. Then each week, managers and team owners match up their teams head-to head in accordance to watch real time games each week. Touchdowns, field goals, interceptions, yards gained and more win your team points. Many leagues play for prizes such as money, NFL gear and more.
