By Diana NielsenDepending on what hour of the day you’re reading this, there are 10 days, 3 hours, 50 minutes, and 45 seconds left until the NFL draft. Ladies, now is the time for us to act! If we’re really going to give the men a run for their money this fantasy football season, it’s time for us to start doing our homework now.
Draft date is an important day to pay attention to when you’re beginning to make decisions that will affect your fantasy football team, so be prepared on April 26th and 27th to host a “girl’s night” in front of the TV and see which football player is going to what team. This information will be extremely helpful to you when you begin planning your women’s fantasy football team. (Plus, you get to see the football players run around in their tight pants and who doesn’t love that?)
Women fantasy football owners are becoming more and more prevalent in an otherwise male-dominated realm of fantasy sports. It’s scary to get out there and play with the big dogs, I know. But recently I’ve found the entertainment value and the excitement that can be had while playing fantasy football and I want to be a part of that regardless of the fact that I’m a chick! Chicks can play fantasy football just as well or better than men can and this season we’re going to prove it.
Don’t worry if you’re clueless about fantasy football; I’m going to teach you all you need to know! The second step is preparing for your league’s draft. There are a few ways the draft of your league can happen.
Electronic Draft — This is how almost every fantasy football league drafts nowadays. Everything is done in cyberspace! You can decide just how lazy you want to get with it, however, as there are websites that give you information only, all the way to websites that will completely manage your team for you. Just how e-lazy do you want to be?
Social Draft — Meet at a girlfriend’s house and make a day of it. Invite all the women who’ll be participating in the women’s fantasy football revolution and plan a party! “Experts” suggest you leave out the alcohol so you’ll be focused on the draft, but us chicks know that fantasy football should also be fun! Just make sure to have everyone’s cheat sheet handy and you can draft from that. (More about cheat sheets and other tools you’ll need later.)
Destination Draft — Easily my favorite type of draft, this one usually involves getting on a plane and flying to somewhere warm and breezy. Destination drafts are more like a fantasy football draft pick and vacation combo. You and your posse of girls will really turn some heads at a sports bar in Vegas, sitting around waiting to pick your perfect fantasy football team. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
Then, get yourself ready to win. Watching the NFL draft is a great next step because you’ll start to familiarize yourself with the powerful players you’ll want to put at each position in your fantasy football team. Not only will you hear the names of some of the top NFL draft players, but you’re likely to pick up a few statistics about their skills. If you really want to do this, join me in the women’s fantasy football revolution! It’s going to be an awesome ride and now’s the time to get on.
