A peer-to-peer competition where you select actual players to create a fictional “fantasy” team, which receives points based on your players' real-life performance.
A free website for season-long fantasy college football. You can play in leagues of 4, 6, or 8 people, either by creating a private league with friends or family or a public league by joining up with future friends. You pick a Power 5 conference (the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, or SEC) to select players from, and only conference games count towards point totals.
Each matchup pits one user against another, and the user with more points gets a "win". Most matchups last one week, but some weeks have few conference games, so that matchup lasts longer. At the end of the regular season, the two users with the most wins face off in the championship game, which lasts multiple weeks. Whoever gets the most points in that final matchup wins the championship!
The way you pick your base of players. Your league will decide on a day and time to hold the live draft, and you will take turns selecting players. It is a "snake" draft, where the person with the first pick in the first round will have the last pick in the second round, first pick in the third round, and so on. Each user gets 2 minutes per pick, and if the clock runs out he or she will be assigned someone automatically.
During each matchup, you choose five players who will earn you points - a quarterback (QB), running back (RB), wide receiver (WR) or tight end (TE), another RB/WR/TE, and an individual defensive player (IDP). Anyone left on your bench remains on your team for future weeks, but will not score any points in the current matchup. Make sure your starters all have games in the current matchup, anyone with a bye will automatically score zero points.
Our IDP stats - as well as some other numbers - are not added live, so you have to wait until after the game ends for those to update.
If none of your quarterbacks are playing in a game in a particular matchup you can either sign a free agent quarterback, or put another offensive player in that space.
Because only conference games count towards point totals, and most games at the beginning of the season are non-conference games. The first matchup lasts for multiple weeks so that there can be enough players earning points.
That's on you! Ok I'm kidding, a lot of fantasy is luck. You can sign new free agent players if you're sick of your current ones, or trade players with another user. You'll get 'em next time.
