ACCHE Fantasy Football

September 7th will be draft night for our ACCHE Fantasy Football League. All middle/high schoolers are welcome to play. We'll meet at my (Mary's) house in Culloden at 6pm, Tuesday, September 7th. Bring $3 to cover the cost of pizza, chips, and drinks. Please rsvp to and I'll send directions

If you were an owner last year, you will be able to use your team info from last year, but will have to draft new players. The league has been renewed and you should have received an email invitation to renew your team. New players will have to set up their teams before the season starts. We'll go over instructions on how to do that during the draft.

For those of you unfamiliar with Fantasy Football:
copied, with some minor editing, from wikipedia
Fantasy Football is a fantasy sports game in which participants (called "owners") are arranged into a competitive league, earning “fantasy points” by using the statistics of real football players. The owners of each league draft real-life NFL football players, filling a roster containing the various offense or defensive positions on a team, such as Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker and Defense. Depending on how well the players on an Owner’s team do in a given week, the team earns Fantasy Points to compete against the other owners in the league. If a running back rushes for a touchdown, for instance, the running back earned a pre-determined amount of points for that running back’s owner. At the end of the season, win-loss records determine league rankings or qualifications into a playoff bracket. You will need to pick your starting line-up from among your drafted players prior to each week's game. Then, just sit back and watch the points rack up!
