Fantasy sports have grown quite a bit over the years. While some may consider it just a hobby, others take it very seriously. It is a passion and a wayfor the average person to get into a general manager’s shoes. Walking in these shoes is the dream of many. For some, the pull is the skill involved in picking their own team and then managing it on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. The thrill of the win and the agony of defeat are heightened when the opportunity to win prizes and cash is on the line! Beyond the ultimate goal of winning, there is the joy and bond among other fantasy owners.
Before throwing yourself into the world of fantasy sports, you need to learn a couple of things. For one, you do not have to be limited to one sport. If you are a fan of the NBA and NHL, you can join leagues for each! If you happen to be a more casual fan, that is fine too. There are plenty of different styles of play to fit your needs. If you are interested in the realistic length of a season, you can play along the entire year. Of course, if you are someone who is strapped for time this may not be the best option for you. Other options include weekly and daily activity.
Each fantasy league you join will have its own set of rules and regulations. The settings in each league may differ, and there are several types of formats to consider including Salary Cap, Pro Pick’Em, and Snake Draft. Each style has particular features based on the fantasy owner’s personal preference. For example, a Snake Draft differs from the other types in that it prevents your opposition from drafting the same players as you. A draft is a very important part of fantasy sports. This is where you shape and mold your roster.
Make sure you know the type of league you are in before taking the leap. Knowing the rules and scoring of each league is the key to being successful. Common leagues are head to head leagues and total point leagues. For instance, in the NFL season you may have a team going head to head with the opposition on a weekly basis. You want to play the best available players to win that head-to-head matchup. In a total point leagues, you build up the most points to stay on the very top of your league! This way of playing can get interesting in survivor type leagues, as teams with the lowest total are eliminated throughout the year. You want to remain on top in order to survive and ultimately win your league!
Fantasy sports have grown to such a high level of popularity, and fits perfectly in today’s social networking world. The power of the internet has really made fantasy sports more than just a hobby.
Mike Campelson writes frequently about online sports fantasy sites such as Fantasy Feud and many others. He is well known for being the first to act on fantasy player injuries and it is this skill that has made him one of the best at fantasy sports.
