Fantasy Football allows avid sports fans to create the ultimate sports teams by allowing them to choose from player all over the league. Points are then awarded to the player based on how the members of their team handled themselves on the field – IN REAL LIFE.
As you can imagine, the game can be quite addicting as it not only combines elements of chance but requires the player to know a little something about the game and the players involved in the real world. That is where the importance of syncing up reality and fantasy can give you the winning edge.
You wouldn’t bet on a horse race without first doing some research on the win-loss ratio of the racers involved (or at least you shouldn’t). The same goes for fantasy football. You need to know these players and their records before you start assembling your team. Did Tom Brady hurt his leg last season? Might want to hold off on adding him. One of the best ways you can get this information is by keeping up with football on television. If you don’t have access to football channels, then click here.
In the end, however, you must also use your own judgment. As stated before, there is an element of chance involved in these games and you never know what might happen in the real world that could impact the fantasy one.
