: "It's that time of the year again. Time for Fantasy Football. But what is Fantasy Football and what are (printable) Fantasy Football cheat sheets that everyone is going gaga about on the web as of this writing? For this, we have Wikipedia to the rescue with this short overview: 'Fantasy football is a fantasy sports game in which participants (called 'owners') are arranged into a league. The person who creates the league is called the commissioner, and that person invites other owners into his/her league. Each team drafts or acquires via auction a team of real-life American football players and then scores points based on those
players' statistical on-the-field performances. A typical fantasy league will employ players from a single football league, such as the NFL or an NCAA division. Leagues can be arranged in which the winner is the team with the most total points at the end of the season, or in a head-to-head format (which mirrors the actual NFL) in which each team plays against a single opponent each week. At the end of the year, win-loss records determine league rankings or qualification into a playoff bracket. Most leagues set aside the last weeks of the regular season for their own playoffs.'"
