What is Fantasy Football?

According to Wikipedia (here), fantasy football is an interactive game involving real NFL players virtually owned by players in a group, or league. Based on the real NFL players’ statistics and output each week in the NFL, those virtual owners will gain points for their “teams”.

Chances are, you already know that, right?

To me, this is one of the best games I’ve ever played. Some might say that it is a role-playing game for jocks. Others think of it as one of the fastest growing games in the U.S.

Better yet, fantasy football is the simplest way to meet new and interesting people…as explained in this enlightening video.



Ok, so maybe playing in a league isn’t so much about these people. Maybe you actually want to win a few games and not just laugh at people. Maybe you want to get into the playoffs? Hell, maybe you want to win a league championship this season!?!

Then, welcome to the Fantasy Football Toolkit

What can we do for you? What do we offer?

Here, you can learn to get started in fantasy football. I’m not kidding. If you are a complete, and a pure rookie to playing, you will get wins. You might not have any idea of what the waiver wire is, or what the difference between a sleeper and a rookie is.

Drafting Strategy Explained

For instance, if you are worried about your first league draft, and need drafting strategies but don’t know who to ask, we have you taken care of. In our first video tutorial guide, I show you how to get started with your fantasy player rankings.

Not only do I cover player rankings and ranks, and how to sort those NFL players into digestible and sortable lists, but also about how to do player projections and predictions. It’s a fairly easy way to create your own cheat sheets for your league and depth charts per position.


Fantasy Football Toolkit - How to do fantasy football rankings and tiering

From here, you might want to take a gander at my video guide on fantasy ranking and tiers. Not only do I further how to make projections on your players by position, but also how to groups similar stats and points to create tiers that you will need for your drafting.

What about during the season?

Two words…the waiver wire. Free agency is important in this game. And because it is, and to get better at grabbing those undervalued studs and sleepers each week from the waiver wire, I’ve created a weekly game for players to play.

Winning with the Wire is a waiver wire game I created for new players, and veterans alike, to get better at seeing talent and doing better projections with regards to waivers. Simply use NFL.com to see who are those NFL players owned in 50% or less of fantasy football leagues throughout the season.

Who to start or sit?

Throughout the season, you will constantly get tips on who to start or sit, as well as studs and duds, keepers and dumpers and a lot more. This kind of fantasy football help will keep you up to date as to which NFL players will have a great matchup.

Speaking of matchups, I also write a weekly FanDuel challenge article for those playing in weekly fantasy football challenges. These types of leagues are salary cap leagues where the owner must pick players each week from salary cap draft boards. Those players have their points added, and at the end of the week, the teams are deleted, and if you get the highest points, you win!
