Fantasy football brings in more viewers

Jason Kang, Staff Writer

Fantasy football, one of the most heated competitions in the United States, allows people to become general managers and raise the strongest, most efficient team to compete. It can be played with sites such as ESPN, Yahoo, or NFL and keeps participants engaged with apps on smart phones.

By first picking players from the fantasy draft, individuals determine their rosters before playing each other. Each week, players earn points based on their real performance, and the team with the most points ultimately wins the game. Not only an enormously popular activity among fans, it has attracted students and families to watch more football games on television.
