Fantasy football is a game that is getting more and more popular every single year. Most people absolutely love fantasy football, or have no idea how it works. Here is the definition of fantasy football for those who have no idea how it works, ” a football competition with imaginary teams which the participants own, manage, and coach and with the games based on statistics generated by actual players or teams of a professional sport” (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fantasy+football). Here are the pros and cons of fantasy football.
Pros: Keeping you connected with your friends/family: It is very fun to have a fantasy football league with your buddies. From draft day parties to talking smack on the message boards. Fantasy football is what you make of it.
Keep you knowledgeable with the NFL: You probably wouldn’t know the 3rd string wide receiver of the Oakland Raiders was if you didn’t play fantasy football. With fantasy football you are updated on every player in the league and how they do. It keeps you overall educated with the NFL.
The thrill of winning: Bragging rights over your best friends is a great thing. And if you win, you get that.
WIN EASY MONEY: Everyone has at least a couple dumb friends who think they know sports. Some guys have no chances of winning the league, so that is basically free money for you, if you are playing in a league for money.
Cons: Makes individual stats seem more important than the team wins: People will get too caught up on individual stats and stop caring about who wins and loses the games.
Make you root against your home team sometimes: There is some games where you need the best player from your favorite team to have an awful game. That causes you to root against your team, which is never good.
