You’ve been waiting for it. It’s OK to admit it.
You’re an NFL fanatic, and the offseason leaves you feeling a little empty on Sundays. But with the release of NFL.com’s FREE Fantasy 2008 and League Manager games, it’s time to prepare for the start of the fantasy football season. While we’re left to wait until August for preseason action, fantasy footballers can start to prepare for that ever-important draft right now. And there’s no better place to build up your fantasy knowledge than right here on NFL.com.
If you’re looking for an immediate fix, you can visit NFL Shop.com and order your copy of the NFL.com Fantasy Football magazine, which hits newsstands soon. The magazine is chock full of information from NFL.com experts and personalities and is a tremendous basis for building your draft preparations.
Everything in the magazine is updated on nfl.com/fantasy, where you can find player rankings, in-depth content and video. We’ve also released our 2008 NFL.com fantasy draft kit, which includes close to 50 pieces of original content.
Our draft kit has all the bases covered.
Looking for sleepers, breakout players, players to avoid and the top fantasy rookies? We have it. Looking for players in contract years, a list of second- and third-year wide receivers and running backs who turn 29 or older this season. We have it. Do you need a refresher course on all the important offseason player movement, the impact of offensive lines or a break down of all 32 NFL backfields?
Yeah, we have that too.
We’ve also broken down the teams with the easiest run and pass schedules and exclusive player rankings for every position, including individual defensive players. That means QBs, RBs, WRs, TEs, K, DTs, LBs, DLs and DBs are all covered. We’ve even taken a look back at last season to find out which players posted the most consistent and inconsistent fantasy numbers on a weekly basis.
Some of the results will surprise you.
NFL.com senior editor Craig Ellenport covered the top training camp battles to watch, and for all of you NFL historians out there, NFL.com associate editor Adam Rank took a look back at the roots of fantasy football.
In short, there’s really no reason to visit any other website than NFL.com for all of your fantasy football needs.
Let the fantasy games begin!
