Fantasy football is a popular competition played by football fans, in which participants (“owners”) gather and draft their own team and compete with teams built by other owners in their “league.” Each owner takes turns selecting players until all predetermined roster slots are filled. Game winners are determined by points accumulated by players based on their real-life performance in each NFL game. At the end of the fantasy season, generally after the 13th week of the NFL’s regular season, a playoff tournament will determine the league champion.
