Fantasy Football gains momentum, new NFL season begins

The National Football League (NFL) season began last weekend with the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Detroit Lions matchup at Arrowhead Stadium, giving Fantasy Football fanatics another go at winning their own season. 

Fantasy Football is an online game where groups, ranging from 4-16 people, who are able to choose what players they believe will accrue the most points that season. The “game” is set up so that Fantasy points correlate exactly with how their chosen “team” plays in each NFL game. For example, a touchdown represents six Fantasy points, a reception represents one point, and every yard a player moved forward counts as 0.1. 

Each week, as the NFL season progresses, Fantasy Football members are matched up against a particular opponent to see which team earns the most points that week. During the final weeks of the NFL season, playoffs also begin within the fantasy league to determine who comes out on top.

Junior Blake Heselius has drafted his fantasy football team already this year and believes he has the best team in the school. He recently drafted wide receiver Justin Jefferson from the Minnesota Vikings as the 2nd pick in his draft, which has paid off after his win in week one of the season.

“I’m excited for this NFL and fantasy season, and I’m ready to win my fantasy league which will give me an extra  $1000 in my pocket,”  Heselius said.

The hardest part of fantasy football is choosing between all of the talented players in the NFL. The list created can be used as a help guide through the process and hopefully win the championship in one’s own fantasy football league.
