For fantasy football enthusiasts and league commissioners both new and experienced, this book offers thoughtful contemplation of all the major features of the game. With an explicit goal of improving the overall experience, the author brings unique perspective to the designs of familiar portions of fantasy football such as trades, free agents, scoring and roster setups including strategies for avoiding common pitfalls.
But there are also sections devoted to comparatively overlooked areas such as sportsmanship, strategies for change, cultures of individual leagues and ancillary contests. The author furthermore infuses his distinctive proposals for unconventional designs in fantasy football schemes and rules and explains in detail the various expected benefits. Finally, separate sections are devoted to explaining a revolutionary new concept for blending serpentine and auction drafting as well as a checklist for writing your league's rulebook.
