With the NFL season starting tomorrow, fantasy football is on everyone’s mind. You’ve already had your drafts and are ready to compete against a small group of your friends.
What’s missing from a traditional fantasy league? You’re given no opportunity to escape from a bad draft, an unfortunate injury, or terrible luck. The ability to play matchups each week instead of hoping for the best is severely limited. You also have a ton of friends out there that you can’t play with!
The solution? SB Nation Pick 6 Football. We’ve designed a fantasy game that allows you to play the matchups and compete against a large group of people across your real life, your favorite blog and the SB Nation network.
There is no draft – instead, you are given a salary cap of $120 and have to fill out a lineup of six players each week: Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker, and a Wild Card slot that is comprised of all positions other than QB.
I've just put my picks out there (Stephen Hill is $0.50, just a heads up) and I'd love it if Gang Green Nation could be strongly represented across the network. The staff at every NFL Blog are extremely competitive with each other and when we get to the end of the season, I'd love the winner to come from GGN. It'll give us some bragging rights.
It’s a simple, fun game that you only need to play once a week. You will compete on a blog leaderboard against fellow fans! There are awesome badges to win for various accomplishments in the game, and connecting Pick 6 to Facebook will make it easy to showcase your lineup and awards to your friends.
As you are already a member, it just uses your SB Nation details, so you don't have to worry about any long winded sign-up process.
