Living in the Omaha metro area, it’s hard to miss the start of the Huskers’ season. But fall means the start of both college and pro football. Even if you’re not a die-hard fan of a professional football team, you can still enjoy the NFL season with fantasy football.

Fantasy football leagues provide friends and family a fun experience as they compete to show off their knowledge of the sport. Each fantasy team is comprised of players from different NFL teams. As NFL players achieve statistical markers on the field, fantasy teams earn precious points. Whoever has the most points in the end wins the fantasy match up.

It may seem like you have to be an expert to play, but there are so many resources available online, in media, and in print. Three simple steps can take you from fantasy novice to full-fledge league competitor in no time at all!

  1. Learn the basics of your league: Different league settings prioritize different positions, but, once you acquire the language of fantasy football, you’ll see that the game isn’t as complicated as it seems.

  2. Find your favorite fantasy football advice source: There is an endless supply of fantasy football advice. Find a source you think is reliable and check it for suggestions on what players to use each week. With hundreds of fantasy experts giving advice, you can be new to fantasy football and still do well in your league.

  3. Have fun: Having fun is the most important part of fantasy football. If you’re new to the game, try to avoid playing in a money league until you get the hang of it. The less pressure to do well, the more you can sit back and enjoy the company of your fellow fantasy owners
