What To Do If You're A Fantasy Football Addict - There is hope.
If you're an addict (or close to it), there is hope for you.
Here are a few cutting edge, holistic, organic and scientifically unproven strategies to cure your fantasy football addiction.
- Reduce Your Number of Fantasy Teams - Instead of joining 10 leagues next season, only join 7 or 8. The next season drop it down to 5 and so on until you're left with only 1 or 2 teams. Each team you eliminate will save you significant time spent drafting, managing and working trade deals. You might find that you're managing your remaining teams better.
- Wean Yourself Off Fantasy Football With Other Fantasy Sports - Try switching to an easier, less time intensive fantasy sport like Fantasy NASCAR or Fantasy Golf.
- Go Cold Turkey - No, not a post Thanksgiving sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce. The other kind of cold turkey. Quit fantasy football. Find a new owner for your teams (someone as good as you...or at least as good as you think you are). Change your email address and never look back.
- Cancel Your Cable Subscription - Without access to ESPN and other cable sports channels, you won't have football thrown in your face 24/7. Use that extra time to reconnect with loved ones. Potential side effects include spending more time surfing the web for fantasy info but cutting out your cable bill will help you save money.
- Cancel Your Internet Connection - This is an extreme, yet effective, strategy for those completely lacking will power. Potential side effects include a ticked off family; difficulty paying bills online; and, in rare cases, resorting to old school methods of managing fantasy football leagues using pencil, paper and the box scores from the newspaper.
- Be Proud Of Your Fantasy Addiction - For those who accept that fantasy football isn't a game, it's a way of life and aren't afraid to show it.
