Over the years fantasy football has become rapidly more popular for football fans young and old. It brings you closer not only to your favorite team but also the entire league. Depending on how serious you take it, fantasy football could be a full time job, or just a hobby that you do sporadically. Either way you look at it, fantasy football gives fans a different perspective on the game, and has brought a lot of fans closer to the game which has allowed it to grow into what it is today. I have played for only 5-10 years so far, but have learned plenty from my experience with it. From being in a league that no one really cares about to being the commissioner no one can stand. At the end of the day you have to remember it’s just a game, unless there is money involved then it is a little more than that.
Over the next couple weeks I am going to post my pre-training camp rankings for each position as it pertains to a typical fantasy football line up. Each and every league is different, and depending on which league you are in the rankings might not make much sense. For example in a point per reception league, I would rank Wes Welker higher than I would rank Victor Cruz. Cruz will get more yards probably, but with a slot receiver like Welker his yardage might be similar to Cruz’s but Welker will have more receptions to get to that point. So even though my rankings might not reflect how your league is setup, I am just doing a general ranking according to a standard league. It also depends on the size of your league, the bigger the league the tougher it will be to get quality players. So it really depends on the amount of effort you decide to put into Fantasy Football. But I would love comments and questions about the players, trades, etc. throughout the year. Depending on the interest, who knows, maybe Cat Crave will start a fantasy football league for all of us to compete against one another. Thanks for reading and please stay tuned for my first rankings – QB’s 1-20. Is Cam Newton in the top 5? Check in next week to find out.
