Fantasy Football is giving everyone the chance to manage a winning football franchise. Once you are signed up then you go through a selective process to pick players. You can either pick your favorites from different teams or pick the best of the best. The performance of the players drives your fantasy team to either gain or lose points.You decide what type of league you want to participate in, acquire a roster of players then set your lineup each week during the season and watch as touchdowns, field goals, yards gained, sacks, interceptions and much, much more generate fantasy points for or against your team. I also learned that some may win money or prizes if their fantasy team does well. William Winkenbach, Scotty Stirling, and Bill Tunnel were the creators of Fantasy Football. It started in 1962, when these three men started GOPPL (the greater oakland pigskin prognosticators league). They invented rules that are similar to today’s Fantasy Football where points are awarded to the number of touchdowns and other impressive statistics. The rest is history.
When researching Fantasy Football, I knew that if i just typed fantasy football into google then I would receive results that wanted me to play or join a Fantasy Football league. So instead I typed in When did Fantasy Football start? or About Fantasy Football? I came to many websites but nfl.com helped discover what Fantasy Football was truly all about. I can now understand my brothers at the dinner table.
