Fantasy football was born out of a brainstorming session stemming from the mind of Bill Winkenbach of Oakland in 1962. The Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prognosticators League or GOPPPL debuted in 1963 after some minor tweaking of the rules. What fantasy football offers its participants is the opportunity to be the owner/general manager/coach of their own franchise. The one man front office must maneuver the team throughout a season that coincides with the ongoing NFL season. The first step is determining what type of league you want to participate in.
There are generally four types of leagues to join. The four types of leagues are keeper, redraft, dynasty and salary cap leagues. A keeper league is a league that allows owners to keep a predetermined number of players after the season is over. All other players are eligible for the draft the next season. In a redraft league every player in nfl jersey authentic is released after the season and is eligible for the draft the following season.
The dynasty league makes things a little tougher as teams are basically the same as only incoming rookies and free agents are eligible for the draft the following season. The final league is the salary cap league; in this league the players are assigned a dollar value, with teams having a cap on what they can spend; have to fit their roster under the cap. The type of league is important because different roster building strategies would be employed throughout the season. The next decision will be made by the league as a whole, that decision is what format to use.
There are two formats that are widely accepted by fantasy football players; they are head to head and cumulative. In head to head leagues each team has a schedule in which they play another team in the league each week. The match ups are usually determined by a number sequence in which teams within the same division usually play each other twice while playing teams not in the same division once. Wins, losses, major league baseball jerseys and ties are accumulated weekly as the stats from the NFL players in steelers football jerseys on their respective rosters gain yards, score touchdowns and record stats on the gridiron. Cumulative leagues don’t count wins and losses, the standings are determined by the total points scored throughout the season with the rankings fluctuating as the season plays out.
