Buyer’s Guide

Choosing which fantasy football magazine to buy can be a difficult task. Although, I would still suggest that you should buy more than a single magazine.

The reason is that all the magazines out there can be unique in their own way. Anyways, these are the things that you should look for when you want to buy a football magazine:

Updated Stats:

It is very important for the information, rankings, and stats to be updated, or else it would be of no use. These will help you to predict more accurately about which players will perform better than the others.

Unique Strategies:

If you really want to play the league for winning or having a higher placement, then you must follow new and unique strategies. Or else if you keep following the same old ways, then the ones using the new and better ones would easily win and you will be left behind.

Good Source:

By this, I mean that the author of the guide or magazine you are buying should be an experienced player or a known person in the work of fantasy football. Or else you would just be blindly following some bogus strategies which won’t let you win and would also waste your time and money.


What is the point of fantasy football?

The point is to win the league or place higher against your friends or the competitors of your league online. You can earn money by winning in big league matches.

How do you play fantasy football?

First, you need to find a league and sign it up online. Then you will have to select players and make a team. After the real NFL season, placements in the league will be judged according to the performance of players selected.

You can participate in free league seasons through mobile apps or register in paid big league seasons. You might need to get paid coaching through magazines or books.

Can real NFL players play fantasy football?

NFL players can play fantasy games but there are some rules made for them. These rules restrict them from winning more than a certain amount of money from fantasy football games.

What position should you draft first in fantasy football?

In depends on your strategy but it’s good to draft backs first followed by a tight end, then a defense, a kicker, and at the end, a quarterback.
