Football season is in full effect and all of the National Football League (NFL) fanatics are chattering about is who is on their fantasy football team. The NFL has created a way for fans to be more hands-on when watching the games. Viewers download an app called Fantasy Sports, and within the app, they are able to choose players each week. In detail, they choose a quarterback, wide receiver, tight end, running back, and players from all aspects of the field. The players that they choose are the ones they believe will do good in the next game. With this, the observers are able to have a so-called “stake in the game” on game day.

To explain deeper, this article written by the NFL official website communicates,“Fantasy football works like this: First, you decide what type of league you want to participate in, acquire a roster of players (either through a draft or through auto pick assignment), then set your lineup each week during the season… Whether you win or lose and climb or fall on the leaderboard all depends on how well you maximize the talent on your roster each week.”

Juniors Grayson Hall and Jackson Shelly said, “The reason we create a team every week is because a lot of our friends play it and it is a way we can compare and compete with one another, and gain bragging rights for the score we retain.” Similarly, junior Tyler Corn feels the same way: “I like fantasy football because it is fun to pick and see my picks among my opponents.” On the contrary, junior Sam Sharp isn’t a fan of fantasy football. “I mainly don’t have the time to play it, and I would rather just watch or play football than play something that is not real,” he says.

When people are watching the games, it will generate more income for the company. The creation of this device has produced more fan involvement, which in return has made viewers further interested in watching the games.
