What Exactly Is Fantasy Football And How Does It Work?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
What exactly is fantasy football and how does it work? My husband is doing that fantasy football thing and I would like to know what it is and how it works. Thanks!
Answer: Hi, In fantasy football you're basically in charge of managing a "fantasy" football team. You're given a team and have to choose the best players from the NFL to fill the spots on your team. Each week you trade/add players to your team depending on how other players do and who the players team is playing. Each team in his fantasy league does this and according to how each individual player does, he get's points for how they've performed (eg, Touchdown opts, rushing 100 yards 10 Pt's...etc etc). Some people gamble some don't. It's VERY addicting! As his wife it's a good way to free up your Sundays and Monday nights to go shopping with his money while he watches football. :D Hope this helped.

How Does Prize Eligible Fantasy Football Work?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
How does prize eligible fantasy football work? I want to play fantasy football for money next year. but how do the prizes work. like are there different prizes I can sign up for? I was thinking I could pay like 20 bucks and have a chance to win 100$ that kind of prize.. I dint want to pay a lot of money. how does it work?
Answer: If you are the commissioner, then have the teams pay in to draft a team, say $20. Out a of a 10 team league, that makes a $200 pot. With such a small pot, you'll likely only pay out the top two teams, like a 70/30 split ( or $140/$60). I'd suggest doing at least a $50 buy in, and make the pot a little bigger to pay out 3 or 4 teams that make it to the playoffs. My league is a $150 buy in with 12 teams. $1800 pot is split like so: Winner gets half or $900, ND place gets 3 shares or $450, RD place gets 2 shares or $300, Th gets his money back , $150. If you play with the same guys every year, I would suggest adding a traveling trophy, which each years champion holds Thur the following season. Ours is really nice, with an old time leather football helmet on top, it gets an engraved plate added every yr with the champs name and year. It makes it that much more fun, having a trophy all off-season and keeps all your team managers interested in your league. Go ogle or search EBay "Fantasy Football trophy", they can run $40-100 dollars. They're cheaper now in the off season, but if your handy, and creative, you can make your own. (I did for about $40) Just make sure the base is large enough to put plates on with each years winner, then get some plates made with the name of the league for the front and one with the first years winner and your set. (mine were done for $10 bucks for both) You can add anything you want as the top if you do it yourself, and it can be really funny too! But the commissioner has to run the money end. No web site will do that for you, that would be illegal.
What Is Fantasy Football? How Does It Work? ?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
What is fantasy football? How does it work? ? I've played football for 13 years, but for some unknown reason I've never had a fantasy football account. Can someone help? I want to get into this. What are the best free sites? I was thinking about Yahoo Fantasy Football. Is that any good? Can someone just help explain it a bit? Thanks!
Answer: Fantasy football is over,leagues are formed prior to each real season,and fantasy leagues end at the same time the real league ends. Right now baseball fantasy leagues are forming.There are free & money league options.I like Yahoo leagues the best.Go to yahoo' main sports page,and click "play fantasy baseball",or something like that. Then you'll get to pick a pro,custom,or public league.Pro costs money to play,but the other ones are mostly free.Other choices you'll have is head to head,or Root (I like head to head.),live,or auto pick draft (I'd pick live draft),snake or auction draft (I like snake drafts),then you'll join a specific league & choose your team name. Fantasy compiles stats from players you draft,and matches them against other opponents in your league..It's a fun & addicting hobby.I play it year round with NFL,MLB,& NBA fantasy teams. GL

How Would The Winner Be Decided In The Playoffs For Fantasy Football If The Game Ended In A Tie?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
How would the winner be decided in the playoffs for fantasy football if the game ended in a tie? Playing fantasy football over the past few years I know that during the regular season if you tie with your opponent your record will reflect it; i.e 3-2-1. The other day I was wondering how the winner would be determined if you and your opponent tied during the playoff rounds. Is it based on overall points?
Answer: Just like in the NFL playoffs (they'll play as many OT periods they need to settle the score), TIES are not allowed in the fantasy playoffs. To answer your question... it really depends on what league you're in. Most leagues will have these sticky details defined even before your fantasy draft is conducted, as it would be extremely difficult to make such a rule after a TIE occurs! Here are a couple of different tie-breaker systems from two popular on line games... YAHOO! FANTASY FOOTBALL PLUS breaks it down like this: In the event that a playoff game ends in a tie, the deadlock will be broken using the following system: Most touchdowns scored by entire starting roster. * Most fantasy points by starting quarterback(s). Most fantasy points by starting defensive team(s). Most fantasy points by starting defensive player(s). Most fantasy points by starting defensive back(s). Most fantasy points by starting defensive linemen. Most fantasy points by starting wide receiver(s). Most fantasy points by starting running back(s). Most fantasy points by starting tight end(s). Most fantasy points by starting kicker(s). *All touchdowns scored by the team (passing, rushing, receiving and defensive) will be counted in the playoff tiebreaker. CBS SPORTS LINE – STANDARD SCORING FANTASY FOOTBALL makes it clear: During the playoffs, there are no ties. The team with the highest number of points scored by its 'reserve' (bench) players in that playoff game will be the winner. If this doesn't break the tie, then the team with the higher playoff seed gets the Win. Either way, if you're playing in a league, your league's commissioner should already have the playoff tie-breaker defined in its Rules & Regulations, or the League Constitution. I hope your league didn’t experience a tie in the playoffs without a rule set in place.
Does Yahoo Fantasy Football Auto draft Work OK If You Have People Who Want It To Auto-Pick?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
Does Yahoo Fantasy Football Auto draft work OK if you have people who want it to auto-pick? I am a Yahoo Fantasy Football League Manager. I have people who want live draft and those that just want it to auto-draft. Does that work well with the live draft option in Yahoo Fantasy Football?
Answer: the yahoo auto draft will select best player according to their rankings, until all starters are fill led. then it starts working on the bench. downside to this is you end up wasting valuable late picks on kickers and defenses, sometimes picking up 2 defense and 2 kickers. that's 4 picks better spent on wide outs, or RB's. another downside is you could possibly draft a QB or WRY in round 1...blowing a stud RB that's more valuable. here's what one of my leagues is doing. we basically like live drafts. but of course some people have such important lives they can't spare 1 hour of their day, so during the live draft, they get best available according to yahoo's rankings. if that means a TE in round 3, too bad. you should've been there. so select live draft, print out a sheet of yahoo rankings, and as managers select players, cross them off the sheet, and when an auto-draft yuppie comes up, just draft them the highest player NOT SELECTED till they have all their starters. as for the bench, we ignore position. if they get 5 tight ends...too bad. personally, I hate auto-drafts. that live draft is honestly half the fun in playing fantasy football. you're all 0-0, talking crap, making fun of draft picks, eating pizza and wings, having some beers. if u bomb out starting the season 1-3...u are probably in for a long season, at least you had fun at the live draft though!

Answer: This is week 1, of course it starts today, the NFL starts today. NFL schedule = fantasy football schedule. Where do you think the fantasy points come from?
How Do I Get Involved With A Fantasy Football League?From Fantasy Sports Forum:
How do I get involved with a fantasy football league? So, year after year I hear about people talking about fantasy football and how they think I should join a league. I was wondering how to get involved with a league, preferably a free league. I wouldn't even know the first place to start. All suggestions are appreciated, thanks.
Answer: For beginners, Yahoo fantasy is the best. It's quick and easy. You can play for free I would join a public league and join a casual competition level. Live drafts are more user controlled, auto pick means you don't have spare time and you set a list of players you like and the computer drafts for you. The basis rules are under the settings of any league (once you join, you can see the scoring system). Public league settings are 4 points for passing Tads, 6 points for receiving or rushing. Then there are points for yards depending on if they are passing, rushing or receiving. There are some different rules for kickers and defense (check the settings so you know what they are) Kickers and defenses are overrated in drafts because defenses and kickers vary in fantasy production from year to year. Example, New England 3 years ago was one of top D's (Ty Law, Rodney Harrison and company put up a lot of turnovers). Then the next year they were in the bottom 5 in the league. Then last year, they were back up to the top 5. See what I mean. Let's do an example of how fantasy football works in a smaller setting so you can understand better. We'll say we get 4 points for a passing TD, 6 for receiving, every 25 yards passing you get a point and every 10 yards receiving you get a point. It goes by a week by week basis so each week is a different opponent. Week 1, let's say you play me. I have Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson and you have Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison. Let say Carson Palmer throws for 300 yards and passes for 3 Tads and Chad Johnson has 60 yards receiving and 0 Tads. Then Peyton throws for 2 Tads and 400 yards, with Marvin Harrison getting 1 TD and 100 yards receiving. So the computer (no work for you) will say Palmer = 3 x 4 =12 points for Tads and 12 points for throwing 300 (12 x 25) yards. Johnson gets 6 points for 60 yards. Manning gets 2 x 4 = 8 for Tads and 16 for 400 yards (16 x 25). Harrison gets 6 points for rec. TD and 10 more for yards. Palmer = 12 + 12 Johnson = 6 Total for my team is 30 points Manning = 8 + 16 and Harrison = 6 + 10 Your team gets 40 points, so you win (you become 1-0 and you play a different opponent the next week with week two stats...top four teams make the playoffs..single elimination... playoffs begin week 15 typically and end week 16).
