When the football season starts, it’s time to get on the fantasy football bandwagon. If you think that you know better than the football managers, why not give it a shot? Fantasy football adds an extra dimension to the sport. Fans from around the world can enjoy this game. Getting it right takes a lot of skill. You have to understand which player will do well and get them. You also have to know a thing or two about finances. Since you get a set budget, you have to make sure that the players you use fall within that.
If you choose the right players and win the most points, you get the satisfaction of knowing that you knew best. In fact, you knew what the managers would do and how the team would play. Well done. If you get it all wrong, though, it’s time to do your homework. At that point, you have to go back to the drawing board and start again. Choosing a winning team is not easy, but someone has to do it.

- Mail Online Fantasy Football
You can tell that the Daily Mail have spent an awful lot of money developing their fantasy football site.

Aside from that, you will also find that there is a ‘most popular players’ tab, which is a massive help.
- The Sun Fantasy Football Dream Team
If you want to create your ‘Dream Team,’ The Sun’s game might be the one for you. If you want to play the original game, there is no fee, which is great.
