Choosing a Fantasy Football League For beginners, it may be a bit overwhelming to choose a league, let alone intimidating. I know a lot of owners out there who joined several leagues and if you’re not good enough it could swamp you. The trick is to choose the fantasy football league that suits you best, a league may work well for another player but not for you. It takes time and patience but you’ll get to choosing that league that will work like a charm for you. When it comes to picking up a real fantasy football league with real fantasy competition, you should know as much as you can about the other fantasy football owners, When someone is recruiting you to their league and you hear a series of statements, here are the things you should be giving a thought: See if the Price is Right Study a few Anecdotes and learn from it Check out a list of champions Get a copy of the full scoring system Get a list of rules Have a talk with the commissioner The first question that a person wishing to play in this fantasy sport is “How much is the Entry fee if there’s any and how much is the Prize Money?” There’s a league that has ‘winner-takes-all’ while on the other hand there are leagues that have prize money for the top 3 finishers in a 50-30-20 split. Other leagues that offer weekly prizes for top points or single-play top points also exist. There are a lot of options to choose from but the most important thing is to make sure that the league won’t overwhelm you, the prize money is right and is handed fairly, whatever fits as fair for you and it’s on time. We’re talking about money here, of course we want it on time and that it won’t be delayed. It won’t hurt to listen to stories about the league. Draw some stories from the league members or those who invited you to join. A lot of fantasy football owners love to talk about the past so it shouldn’t be hard for you. You’ll hear great picks and trades that were pulled off greatly and other rueful stories from others. You should also learn who wins each year. Seeing a number of league champions would of course give you a good picture about the league. It shows how competitive they are and you can also learn a thing or two from them.
