Don’t let this guy beat you at fantasy football.
So, for one reason or another, you’ve finally decided to try your hand at fantasy football. Maybe the guys at work have been pressuring you to join the league. Maybe you just got engaged and your fiancée’s eleven brothers have been patiently waiting for her to get married so they’d have a twelfth. Maybe you’re just trying out your first free public league (Yahoo’s your best bet here, by the way). And maybe you don’t know a damn thing about football. No problem. Here’s an easy-to-follow plan that will result in a very solid team in just about any league with a standard format (1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DEF).

One thing I can guarantee you, though: If this is your first year playing fantasy football, you are far better off using this strategy than you are coming up with one on your own.
