About

Welcome to Fantasy Funk, an independent and free fantasy football website. To give you a better idea of what this site is all about, here is my self-serving version of the FAQ section:

Q. Why did you start this website?

A. I started this website for a number of reasons: (1) I love fantasy football; (2) I already do a ton of research and analysis for my own fantasy teams, so I thought I might as well share the so-called wealth; and (3) I hope that, by some twist of fate, someone will discover this site and want to pay me to write about fantasy football.

Q. Who are you and why should I listen to you?

A. My name is Nate. And I love football. I follow the NFL year round. I get more excited on the night before the draft than I do on the night before Christmas. And I spend every Sunday from September to January watching as many games as I can. And then I spend the other 6 days of the week reading about the games and players. Basically, I do all the reading and research so you do not have to. And then I post it to this website.

Q. What makes this site different from ESPN or Yahoo?

A. Well, the main difference is that those guys are getting paid to do this while I am doing it for free. Also, anyone can go to ESPN or Yahoo for their fantasy football news and advice. But if you go there, you are getting the same news and advice that everyone else is getting. To avoid this, you could scour the internet for hours, trying to find the best sleepers and key waiver wire pickups, or you could just let me do it for you. I would recommend the latter. Because, well, I am going to do it anyway.

Q. Do you know more about fantasy football than those guys?

A. Maybe. It’s hard to say. But I like to think I know as much as they do. And I can say this with confidence because they rarely tell me something that I do not already know from looking at stats and/or watching the games myself. Which is basically the reason I decided to start this website.

Q. How can I win my fantasy league?

A. Success in fantasy football is about three things: (1) having a good draft, (2) avoiding injuries, and (3) finding the sleepers. The draft is the foundation of your team. And much like the real NFL, a team that is healthy has a much better chance of winning. Also, finding sleepers — whether it is during the draft or in free agency — provides you with options when your so-called studs fail to perform.

Q. I took your advice and it was wrong.

A. Yeah. Sorry. It happens. Fantasy football is extremely difficult to predict. No one is right all the time. Even those guys at ESPN and Yahoo! are wrong very often. And I will certainly be wrong on occasion, as well. But I am right much more often than I am wrong. And I am confident that if you listen to my advice, you will have more success than you would otherwise. I have advised many friends and family members in their fantasy leagues, and they are always more successful than when I did not advise them.

Q. What kind of league do you play in?

A. My leagues generally have 12 teams with 15 players per team (starting roster = QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, DEF, K) and I use Traditional Scoring (e.g. 10 rush yards = 1 point, rush TD = 6 points, pass TD = 4 points). Also, my leagues use an auction draft, which I think is far superior to the traditional (“snake”) method of drafting.

Q. Can I contact you for more personal advice?

A. Absolutely. My email address is fantasy.funk@gmail.com. I am happy to provide you with more personalized advice (within reason). If you require more frequent advice, or would like me to help manage your team throughout the season, please contact me and we can discuss this further.

Q. Are you on Twitter?

A. Why, yes, I am: @fantasyfunk. Check out my updates there for links back to this site and a few random nuggets of knowledge.

Thanks for stopping by. And be sure to leave comments or send me a message and let me know what you think. I am always looking for ways to improve the site, and the best way to do that is for me to know what you want.
