NFL Best Ball 101 - 2019 Edition

Like driving a new car for the first time, the thrill of putting together a powerhouse fantasy team on draft day is hard to beat. For even the most grizzled fantasy vet, the draft often becomes the most fun part of the season, as leagues can feel like a tedious marathon at times. Between keeping up with the constant revolving door of news blurbs, grueling weekly transactions, trades, and setting lineups, the sport of fantasy sometimes feels more like a chore. That’s where best ball comes in. Draft your perfect team, then sit back and enjoy your maintenance-free, weekly-optimized lineup take down the league championship for cold hard cash.

The point of this ever-growing format is simple, take the most fun aspects of fantasy football, namely drafting and prizes, while getting rid of the baggage that comes with the season long and dynasty formats.

Like any traditional league there are plenty of options.
