After delving into FX’s The League last week, the denizens of that sweaty jock box now take you from the world of fictional fantasy football to the more realistic world of real-life fantasy football. Did your eyes go crossed? Good.
That’s right, Inside the Locker will be hosting their own fantasy football league for this upcoming season, and you’re invited to join! Leave a comment in this post if you’d like to play or you can send a tweet to @jcdeleon1 and let him know of your interest.
In the meantime, we are offering a beginner’s guide to fantasy football. We breakdown all the key positions and tell you who we would, and probably will, draft. Listen up, voice your interest, and prepare for our draft on August 31st.
It’s all part of our nerd football fantasy.
