Fantasy football is the most successful fantasy sport in the world. Whether it’s because you only have to set your lineup once a week or because it’s the perfect way to get together with some friends to eat and drink, fantasy football is played by millions of players with multiple teams across the world. While it may be difficult to make the actual games better, there are a few ways to make your league better.
1. Pick the right competition
There is NOTHING worse than joining a league, doing your research, making your draft selections, and then realizing that half of the league does not care about fantasy football as much as you do. Whether it be making ridiculous transactions or not setting a lineup correctly, playing with the wrong people can sour your fantasy experience. Make sure you pick the right league with the right people to match your level of competitiveness.
2. Pick the right time
Do you know what half of the fun in drafting is? It’s being around people where you can talk shit, get drunk, and binge too much pizza. This one seems a little self-explanatory, but don’t plan your draft at a time where people have to rush. Relax, it’s supposed to be fun!
3.Get the right supplies!
Whether you plan on doing an online draft or a live draft, you’ll need the right supplies. Remember to print off some rankings and articles on players to help your decision making. If you plan on doing a live draft, make sure to visit FantasyJocks get your draft kit. It really does make a difference in the quality of your live draft and it’s completely affordable.
4. Don’t be a dickhead
No one likes it when someone mocks your selection. While it’s fair to spark up conversation debating projections, there’s no reason to be a jerk about it. If you come to the point where you’re legitimately arguing about fantasy football, maybe you all should take a time-out and eat more pizza.
5. Find a good punishment
This is my favorite part. Maybe it’s me being a little sadistic, but there’s nothing better than watching the last place team take part in an agreed-upon punishment. Whether it be a tattoo, wearing a monkey suit during the draft, or doing a photo-shoot calendar with the last place team posing in a different dress for each month, make sure you pick something fun and funny for the entire league. And don’t be a sore loser, if you agree to the punishment, man-up and do it.
