Tips For Hosting A Fantasy Football Draft

Fantasy football leagues across the country are gearing up for the NFL season. Here are some tips for hosting the perfect fantasy football draft.

  • Be sure to tidy up a bit before allowing 11 overweight, increasingly intoxicated men to rampage through your house for five hours
  • If you can’t find an adequate draft board, feel free to scrawl your picks on the walls of your living room
  • As host, you’re allowed to make everyone’s first-round selections for them
  • Remember to put an extra bowl of ranch in the bathroom in case anyone wants to bring a chicken wing with them
  • Try as they might, women just don’t “get” fantasy football, so avoid marriage or cultivating any kind of romantic relationships in the decades leading up to the draft
  • Don’t invite Steve
  • Avoid purchasing things other than food, as anything you can’t consume will serve as a constant reminder that this event actually took place
  • After every single pick, be sure to comment about how you were going to pick that person next
  • A draft clock is necessary, so grab an hourglass from one of your board games; anything more sophisticated and it’ll look like you’re actually going to be a prick about the whole timing thing
  • For a fun change of pace, try drafting in the woods
  • Be sure to have a football on hand for you and your buddies to playfully toss around
  • If you’re a fucking idiot, it can be fun to refer to your draft site as “the war room”
  • Try to make it into at least the 10th round of the draft before allowing the sexual tension teeming between you and your friends to unceremoniously erupt
