Welcome to Fantasy Sports Dad! Here we will discuss many aspects of fantasy sports, answer questions about different players and teams as well as types of fantasy sports, such as football, basketball, baseball and others. And if you are a dad like me, trying to juggle work, youth sports and some fantasy sports drop me a comment at the bottom and say hello!
My wife and I were married earlier this year and stay busy raising 4 kids. If I am not at work I am probably at a kids football game, or volleyball game, or orchestra concert of some sort. It is a good life, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
How I became a fantasy sports enthusiast
I have always loved sports. Early in my life, watching a Chicago Bears team doing their Super Bowl shuffle I was hooked. Through all the ups and downs (and being a Chicago sports fan there are plenty of downs let me tell you!) I still keep coming back for more.
Not too long after Walter Payton and Da Bears caught my attention I came across a version of fantasy football in the local newspaper. You chose members of NFL football teams based on tiers, a mix of quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers and mailed in your team. Every few weeks you would get a report in the mail telling you how you were doing against the thousands of others playing the same game.
Then this thing called the internet came along and completely changed the game. Before long, you could join leagues with people all over the world in minutes. Fantasy football has always been my favorite, and to my wife’s joy I manage 7-8 season long leagues, in addition to daily fantasy as well. After football, I began playing fantasy basketball and baseball, which can be a lot of fun with multiple games per week.
The More The Merrier
The most fun I have about fantasy sports is the debate leading up to, during, and after games. Did my players perform better than yours? Did I make a bad decision that cost me the game? As with anything worth doing, fantasy sports are more fun with your friends.
Since fantasy sports is not an exact science, a lot of it is up for debate. Who should you start? Who should you even have on your team? Do you have too many at one position, and maybe need to look for a trade? So many questions, and there are many answers.
A place to talk fantasy sports
This website will be a place where I can give my insights on the games happening across the fantasy sports world, and discuss them with you. There are sports year round, so there is no end to the fun!
