Are you really, really into sports? Can you recite stats and numbers off by heart? Do you watch every single game, whether your favourite team’s playing or not? You may consider yourself a dedicated sports-lover, but that said, there’s a good chance you haven’t really experienced the thrill of the game until you’ve tried out fantasy sports! True enthusiasts who follow all the games in leagues from the NFL to the NHL to the NBA and the MLB will find a whole new kind of excitement in playing fantasy sports from the comfort of their homes, tracking the performances of different players and stacking up their own dream teams.
Unfortunately, most Fantasy sports offer only season-long pools, and as a “coach,” you can only find out the results of your decisions at the end of the season – both of which can be a bit of a turnoff for true sports fans who want to play regularly and know the results of their decisions in real time. But now there are some websites that offer a wider range of options for players – for example, Fantasy Feud, which is a fantasy sports website which allows players to pick between a range of different contests, draft players and win prizes by participating in the weekly or daily fantasy sports .
Fantasy Feud offers three different types of daily and weekly drafts in the four most popular sports – basketball, football, golf and hockey. Players can win cash prizes, or they can redeem the points earned by winning games to buy merchandise from the site’s online store. There are different types of Fantasy Feud games available; players can choose between any of them depending on their interests and dedication to the league.
The “salary cap” draft involves playing the role of the general manager who has a salary cap of $100,000 to recruit players for his team. By selecting the best players available within this limited budget, this team will be pitted against the team of other players. A lower salary has to be paid to the lower-tier players, leaving more money for the star players. In the “snake” draft, the four “coaches” picking their teams will have to face off against each other, and the sequence of picking will be reversed after each round of picks is completed. A private draft which is restricted to friends can also be created. It is advisable to monitor the rosters of your competitors, so that you can understand the makeup of their teams as well as your own needs, and select players accordingly. “Pro pick ‘em” draft is a box pool, where there are 10 different groups of players, and 8 players in each group. The fantasy sports coach has to select which player will top the particular group. This team of 10 players will then face off against the team selected by the opponent and the team with the maximum number of points will be declared the winner of this draft. By selecting the players after doing a little research of past and present record, can increase the chances of a win for the team.
Fantasy Feud also features a news section which allows players to easily get up-to-the-minute information about the different players in their leagues, such as their salaries, career statistics , injuries and other information that could be relevant to their performance. It also features the “field of dreams,” where 24 top fantasy players in the world play against each other for a season.
Sitting on the couch watching sports with your friends can be fun – but taking it to the next level and actually coaching the games yourself alongside your buddies is a whole other level of satisfying. Even the most seasoned sports fans can find something new to love with a good fantasy draft.
