I love sports. I really do. Fantasy sports? Not so much. Last season I tried out fantasy football for the first time and was into it for about three weeks, then gave up when I realized I needed to pay more attention to my team than myself on Sundays. I will admit, it can be fun though. I also gave fantasy hockey a try, and it was actually a lot of fun.


I’m giving fantasy football a shot this year again with a sports blog I write for. So, it’s me in a league full of guys. I figure I’m not alone in this situation, so I’m here to help my ladies out. Not all of us enjoy football or know all the top players. So since I’m more of a baseball + hockey gal, I enlisted the help of my boyfriend  and co-worker. They helped me create a list of top-notch players, plus some backups you can grab if you end up having to draft later.
