ABSTRACT
The article presents information on fantasy football. Even though winning a fantasy football league takes almost as much commitment as a good marriage, that's no reason to treat draft day like a bachelor party. If fantasy football players come away embarrassed and unable to remember what happened that night, their season could crash in a hurry. Just because an anchor on a major sports cable channel hypes all the rookie players as "playas" doesn't mean fantasy football players should load up on rookies. The draft has no return policy on damaged goods, so fantasy players would be hurting if they take players who will have more surgeries than touchdowns.
