I love fantasy football! I literally knew nothing about football until this year when I decided to join my friends (group of guys) and their league. There are only 6 of us but considering I’ve made all of my draft picks myself and did tons of research to learn the sport as fast as I could, I’m pretty proud of my team. 

 

Im 8-3 right now meaning that I’m kicking all of their butts 🙂 not bad for the new kid lol. 

 

Funnilyenough, I also did my research and watched all the preseason before I decided to pick the actual team I would cheer for: The Seahawks. pretty proud of that choice so far too lol. 

 

My parents look at me like I’ve grown another head when I show up in Seahawks gear and talk about football but I’m totally addicted now. 🙂

@pinklemonade12:  seahawks FTW!!! 

Im 9-2 right now and am #1 in a 10 team all women league. Also my first time and I did my own research and draft so I’m pretty proud too! This week though my entire bench is on bye and I’m playing #2 who is projected to out score my team by 25 points so it’s not lookin good for me.

I’m sucking SO hard this year!

All my fantasy guys keep getting injured. And chasing butterflies, apparently, because THEY’RE SURE AS HELL NOT SCORING/RUNNING.

I also LOVE the Falcons! And they seem to have forgotten how to play football.

My first year too!! And I have been so surprised with how much fun it is, lol. Guess I should’ve believed my FI when he said it was fun! Wink

Although, in full disclosure I think I like the researching and stats part the best Tongue Out  Here are the links I use for research, in case any other bees are curious about giving FF a try!

I play. I’m maybe 5th in my league, but 2nd in my division, so I should make the playoffs. This year started out really rough (like, lost my first 5 or something), so I’ve been making a comeback. I have some real duds (Tom Brady, Trent Richardson, etc), but I have a few who have been solid (Calvin Johnson for one). 

It’s my 2nd year playing and I’ve really enjoyed it!
