For those of you who have never played Fantasy Football, I’m sure you might have shied away from perhaps an office league or friends league…and we’re here to tell you, don’t shy away, do it! We promise Fantasy Football is really easy, and its SO much fun. It makes the football season really exciting, and the epsn app helps you along away. Just update your league every Wednesday to ensure you have no injured players or players who aren’t playing for the week. Then you start players that are projected to get the most points (which is all listed right there for you at your fingertips when you are in the espn fantasy football app). You’ll learn alot about football if you play, and you don’t need to know anything about football to get started. Plus, we’re here for ya if you have any questions 🙂
