Wow, what a day. St louis finally wins, Tennessee wins (Thank you Chris Johnson for 35 fantasy points), Ravens beat the Broncos, Vikings beat the Packers. Crazy. Hopefully I can win my fantasy football matchup. I'm leading by 9 points with Mike Bell left to play fo me and my opponent has Roddy White left. And me and my friend's team did horrible in our league for our club. We ended up with about 60 points. I wonder what will happen with Steve Slaton. Any ideas?

Can anyone explain the concept of fantasy football? I always hear of but I have no idea what it is.

I personally have only ever played Fantasy Baseball, but essentially there is a "draft" where you pick players. Depending on how well they play, you get points, and the person with the most points wins. But it's more complicated than that. What I just said was like saying, in football, two teams try to get the ball into the endzone. There's far more to it.

What have been your pleasant surprises and disappointments so far this year?

Surprises: Bengals, Vikings/Favre,

Disappointments: Titans, L.T., Bills, Eagles

Any chances for another team to go winless again this year? I think it's quite possible.

Also, since it's American Football in general, would this include College Football?



I hate the Eagles but I don't see how you can be a disappointment when they're tied for 1st Place in the NFC East with my Cowboys.

Also OP : Fix standings, Cowboys are 5-2 , Giants 5-3, and Eagles 5-2

Your Cowboys are going to be eating turf (unless it's actually real grass? Whatever.) this Sunday :razz: . Eagles take the NFC East this year :thumbup:

Yes fantasy football can be complicated. You have to look at depth charts, watch out for injuries, look at websites for projections, rankings, and advice. Can be very tough at times especially with bye weeks. And for the Cowboys-Eagles game, go Eagles!!!!

So give me some feedback here guys. Do you find the standings chart useful? Are there any other things you'd guys prefer? i.e. team rosters, upcoming games, etcetera.

Other than the current week's games, nothing comes to mind. But I can just check the internet to find out, anyway.

Wow, I have no idea what I was thinking there. Maybe I had another team in mind? (Although I can't make a connection)


Standings are fairly easy to look up if you want to. I think it would be too bothersome to have to update each week. But that's just me.
If you want to, do it. :smile:

Thursday Night Football starts up again tonight.

I'm personally not a fan of having games on Thursday, and it's not only because I frequently forget to set my fantasy team.

Keep football to the weekends. :thumbup:

Apologies for the 1.5 year bump, everyone.

But I've decided I want to start following the NFL this season and so obviously need a thread on tif to discuss it. Any vikings fans here? (I've picked them to follow, seeing as Toronto doesn't have an NFL team :()

I think what you meant to ask was are there any PACKERS fans here, because following the Vikings is foolhardy. :-P

Because the Packers are better....and closer to Canada than the Vikings!

In all honesty, the organization is run better, Lambeau Field is very historic (they don't play in an inflated marshmallow dome lol), and I'm from WI so we're going to be bitter enemies if I see you rooting for the Vikings :P
