Do You Play Fantasy Football?

Do You Play Fantasy Football? It was obscure as rhythmic gymnasics a decade ago, but now, fantasy football has upwards of 20 million players in the United States.

This Sunday doesn't just mark the beginning of NFL season, it also marks the beginning of the fantasy schedule as well.

Fantasy players have been over-analyzing their draft results for a matter of weeks now. They'll finally have a chance to see how their teams perform as they sit on their laptops, checking stats incessantly, as the first week of NFL games unfold.

Fantasy football surely has become mainstream. It even has its own TV sitcom, "The League."

Competitors play for pride or for money, and as the world has come to know the game, more advanced rules such as keepers and auctions have become commonplace.

When you watch the NFL these days, it seems as though someone that you're watching with is always more concerned with stats than the actual score. The reason is obvious — his or her fantasy team.

So, do you play fantasy football?
