Publisher Comments:

Fantasy Football For Dummies is a new addition to our popular gaming line.  Created by sportswriters in the early 1960s, fantasy football is a fun (and often profitable) way to follow all the players in the NFL, not just your home team.  In fantasy football, you are your team’ s owner and general manager as you use current real players’ stats from all the real teams (touchdowns, yards gained, etc.) to determine how each fantasy team performs each week.  You put the team together, and make personnel changes throughout the year, and if your team wins, you win your league and often a sizeable cash prize.  Fantasy Football For Dummies  is the only guide to drafting, playing, and winning strategy from a fantasy football veteran.  It  is essential for readers who want to get the edge on their competition in the fantasy football leagues.
