What’s in a name? The fun in Fantasy Football monikers.

Its almost time. You can almost smell the compeition start to bubble up from within. Stats, lists, scheme breakdowns. Its all just around the corner. No, I’m not talking about NFL training camp. I’m talking about FANTASY FOOTBALL.

There are thousands of websites dedicated to fantasy football. How to build a team, how players are ranked, how to draft in the best way possible, everything you could possibly need. But lets be honest, we all know what the most important part of Fantasy Football is. Its all about your team name.

Every year I am amazed by the creativity some people use when creating a team name. A great spin on current events or pop culture. A snarky twist on a players name. So many ways that people find the perfect name.

Patience is key in fantasy football

Wanda Wiedman
Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Football season can’t come any faster for me. As I sit at the kitchen table sipping a Starbucks coffee, the compelling urge to turn on the television to watch a football game is overwhelming.

So I scroll through my email and spot the invitation for our yearly Our Turf Football Fantasy Football league. The excitement is breathtaking and I start putting together a strategy as to how I will draft my players.

But our league has a smart tradition: we don’t draft until preseason is over. This way we know who is out due to injury and we have a chance to start the season with fresh healthy players.

The ladies at OTFB are very serious about our FF league and the players we choose fuel our competitive drive. We are always respectful and encouraging to one another but have no problem pitting a prime player in the right spot to win.

For years we have played a standard league, and it works for us. Several of us play for fun, while others play to win. But patience is key in fantasy football.

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

I love a good rivalry.  Being that I’m a Michigan fan, and Kate’s a Buckeye fan, you know we go back and forth all the time. (Make sure you check in on us the last week of November.)

Lisa and I go back and forth about fantasy football (Yes, that’s me, your TWO-time OTFB Fantasy Football Champ)

I like to give Lucy a hard time about the Packers, and sometimes I give Wanda a hard time about the Bears.

Three Rookies to Watch at Patriots Camp

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Every year, training camp proves decisive for a handful of players. It’s where jobs are won and lost. It’s where careers start and stop.

With Julian Edelman suspended for four games and both the secondary and backfield in flux, Pats camp is shaping up to be crucial for a few newcomers to Foxborough.

Fantasy Football Round Up: 2017 in Review

by Wanda Wiedman and Kate Ahar // @WandaW63 @ClvlndK8

Any avid fantasy football participant has their lineup ready for their draft. First and second rounds are all about the running backs and wide receivers and by mid round the quarterback frenzy takes over. But that didn’t happen this past season. In a panic, someone grabbed Dak Prescott in the first round and chaos ensued. But was it all worth it at the end?

According to our analysis and the ranks by points, here are the Top 10 for each position. Was yours on it?

Fantasy Football 2017 Season Recap

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

I won! I won a championship!

My theory going into the 2017 NFL fantasy football season was to play the numbers. I drafted the highest I could when my turn came, focusing on wide receivers and running backs in the early rounds. Five of our six leagues did not have a kicker on the roster.

Each week, my starters were selected by using the players who had the highest projected stats going into the week’s games. When a player was injured and out for the season, I then replaced said player with the top player available in that position on the league’s list.
