Introduction: How to Play Fantasy Football on Yahoo!

So you are getting ready to tackle Fantasy Football? Sure you've heard of Football, heck even watched a game or two, but now you are ready to claim titles or even money, humiliate friends or strangers and earn bragging rights. This is a step by step guide to get you started in what has become America's new favorite past time.

If you're ready to get started go ahead and head over to step 1 there champ

Step 1: Preparing

Here are a few things you need to get started:

  • Internet
  • A Yahoo! log in
  • Some free time

And thats it. However, these are the bare minimum, you could increase the experience by having these additional (optional) things:

  • a competitive friend or work group
  • a smart phone
  • a TV with access to basic television (bonus if you purchase a Sunday Ticket package from ESPN or DirecTV)
  • creativity and some luck, the irish kind not the quaterback.

And with all that (and this guide) you are already on your way to becoming a real, fantasy, Champion

Step 2: Off Season (aka Getting Started)

First we need to get you set up with a log in. If you already have a Yahoo! login go ahead and give yourself a pat on the back and head on over to the next step.

For the rest of us:

  • .You will see a page similar to the first picture above, scroll down and click on the Blue "Join A League" button
    • Don't worry about creating a League, being a commissioner is in a league of its own...(see what I did there)
  • You will be redirected to another page (the 2nd picture) and click on the "Sign Up for a New Account" hyper link
  • 3rd page: Follow the instructions, fill in the blanks, and click the purple "Create Account"
    • you can use your Yahoo login and email even outside of Football season. It doesn't have to be related to football even! Oh the joy of freedom.
  • You do have to register a phone number and enter a verification code, if its a cell phone they will text it (fees may apply) and if its a land line they will call.
  • Congrats! You are now an account holder! I can't tell you how proud I am.
  • Step 3 here we come
