When it comes to sports, I’m an armchair quarterback that can DIY my way through any project. And, although I don’t have the time or energy to play football anymore (or ever), I still love the game. So when my husband suggested we join a fantasy football league together, it was a no-brainer for me. It’s fun, engaging and easy to learn. This is an important thing for me since I’m not a super competitive person by nature. But soon after we joined our first league, I found myself Googling “How do you play Fantasy Football?” Join us as we share how you can get started playing Fantasy Football!
Types of Fantasy League
There are many different types of fantasy football leagues, but they all have one thing in common: they’re all fun. Some of them last for a single season, and others can last for years.
The first type of league is called a “single-season league.” This means that it’s only played during one year…and then it’s over! This type of league is great because everyone gets to play again next year if they want to, so you don’t have the same people winning every year.
Another type of fantasy football league is called a “multi-season” or “dynasty” league. This means that your team will keep its players from year to year (or at least for many years). Most dynasty leagues allow you to keep a certain percentage of your roster each season (usually around 10%).
A third type of fantasy football league involves drafting new teams every season instead of keeping the same roster from previous seasons like in dynasty leagues do–it’s called re-drafting! You’ll start off with pretty much nothing except maybe some bench spots on your roster after each draft concludes…and then slowly build up your team by trading with other owners or grabbing free agents throughout the entire season until eventually winning it all at the end with an unbeatable squad that no one else could rival!
How Do You Play?
You can join a fantasy football league in one of two ways:
- Free leagues. These are the most popular kind of leagues, as they don’t charge anything to join and have no entry fees. You pick your own players and compete against other people in your league for fun and bragging rights.
- Paid leagues. These are also competitive, but with an added bonus: prizes! With paid leagues, you’ll earn money if you win (or lose). You’ll usually be able to play against friends or strangers from all around the world—and if they’re playing for money too, then it’s just like playing poker on TV except everyone wins something at the end of each game!
Playing fantasy football online is a great way to get involved in the sport without having to physically be there. Instead of sitting on your couch and watching the game, you can watch it while watching your own players play! You’re still involved!
There are two ways to play fantasy football online: join a league or start your own. If you want to join a league, all you have to do is go onto any of the big platforms like Yahoo or ESPN and look for people who are looking for new members. And if you want to start your own league, just make sure that everyone has agreed upon some basic rules before playing (such as whether or not trades are allowed).
Once someone has joined a league and drafted their team, they will set their lineup every week by selecting which players will be on their active roster for that week’s games (it’s usually around 15 total). Your lineup should include who is starting at each position along with how much playing time they’ll likely get based on how many other players are competing against each other at that position during any given week (for example: if there’s only one running back left when everyone else has already chosen theirs then no one would have known what kind of workload he’d receive). This way each team owner knows exactly which players should be getting starters’ snaps during any given week so they can make an informed decision about whether or not those guys deserve playing time as well as knowing when certain players might need replacing due
Tips & Strategies
The waiver wire is an opportunity to add a player who may not be drafted, but has the potential to give you points that could be the difference in winning and losing your matchup. If you’re picking up players from the waiver wire, look for players on teams with good offenses who are playing against weak opponents.
Another strategy would be drafting players that are on the rise based on recent performance and/or injuries, or even both! A lot of people will overlook a player if they haven’t been performing well recently or have been injured for a bit. Look for these types of guys and pick them up before anyone else does.
If you’re looking at getting some extra points from your wide receivers this season, consider drafting ones who play at home often and against weaker defenses (for example: Julio Jones vs San Francisco). This way if your WR has one bad game then hopefully it won’t affect too much because he’ll have another opportunity next week at home again versus another weak opponent (or maybe even better).

Once you’ve joined Fantasy Football Central (and paid our league fee), it’s time to play! The game is simple: pick a team each week that scores more points than everyone else’s teams. The player who scores more points each week wins their match-up, which earns them points for their overall score throughout the season. Your team will be made up of players from different NFL teams who are competing during any given week depending on when they played or which games are being played during a particular day/time slot (Monday Night Football).
As you can see, fantasy football is a great way to make football even more exciting for you and your friends. With the help of technology like Fantasy League, it’s never been easier to start playing—and winning—fantasy football. So what are you waiting for? Join one of our leagues today!
