4. Prep For Fantasy Football
Remember the old days when you would look forward to grabbing the Fantasy guides off the shelf at your local magazine store? They came out in February, before the draft or free agency. They weren’t accurate at all, but we didn’t care. We wanted all the info we could get about possible sleepers, steals and busts.
Now, while they still produce those mags, you can find anything you need on the net, and the time to start prepping is now. Training camp rosters are set and mini-camps are finished. Some of the position battles are shaping up, and some of the best rookies have already shone. The “experts” have already started releasing their rankings.
You can really start to get a feel for certain players you may want to target, and put yourself in position to be ahead of most of your competitors when camp opens and preseason games begin.
