Online Fantasy Sports - You don't have to be an athlete to enjoy some healthy competition.
With sports fans checking out scores and statistics online, it was only a matter of time before they designed online fantasy sports games.
With fantasy sports, a game player pretends to be the owner of a team and builds it to complete with other "owners."
Fantasy sports, also known as Owner Simulation, have become very popular and include almost every sport game known to man, from baseball and football, to cricket and auto racing.
One popular online fantasy sport is hockey.
Fantasy owners within the fantasy hockey leagues compete against each other, using hockey statistics based on individual players.
The more members, or team fantasy owners, are included in the league, the more split the players are, equaling a tougher and more challenging season.
A fantasy owner will pick actual team players of the real hockey teams, often from the NHL, the National Hockey League.
Each fantasy team has the same number of players, consisting of centers, left and right wings, defensemen and goalies.
Fantasy owners are often allowed to "trade" players through negotiations.
Much like regular team trades, fantasy trades allow for owners to adjust their teams for a better chance of increasing their point score.

Online fantasy sports are said to bring a new angle and fun to watching sport games.

There are literally thousands of information sites, both free and for pay, for fantasy football enthusiasts to examine.
When fantasy football began decades ago, magazines were the only providers of the statistical data, for which team owners hunger.
Now, with the explosion of the Internet and search engines and information sites, like LoveToKnow, tens of millions of fantasy football enthusiasts are flocking to the Internet in search of valuable information.
Here is some detail on just a few fantasy football web sites that enthusiasts might visit for information, places to compete and conversation.
The fantasy football web site 4for4.com is one of many combination fantasy football sites.
Another combination fantasy football web site is Footballguys.com.
This is a fantasy football site that is packed with information.
One fantasy football site that appears to be more current than most with its information is FFTODAY.com.
Touting itself as "A Fantasy Football Community," FFTODAY.com offers a chat page that allows fantasy owners to express their feelings on a variety of subjects.
The Community Board requires a free registration and offers discussion on other fantasy sports, in addition to fantasy football.
If you are already in a league, and you're looking for an online fantasy football site that can run the league for you, this is one of best places.
When you think of fantasy football, you likely focus on the players.
However, coaches have an affect on fantasy football as well.
Remember that in fantasy football your team can win even if your players do not.
While many fantasy football team owners spend time reading about player performance and injury, significantly fewer pay attention to coaching changes.
There are several big-name web sites, when it comes to online fantasy football, but none is bigger than ESPN Fantasy Football.
For fantasy football enthusiasts who want league play, statistics, chat and more, ESPN offers the total package.
Like many online fantasy football sites, ESPN offers a wide array of pages and features.

Similar in many areas to ESPN Fantasy Football, Yahoo has much to offer.
This information is free and is very helpful to fantasy football team owners.
To begin with Yahoo Fantasy Sports, you'll have to register with Yahoo Fantasy Football.
Like most other online fantasy sites, there is no cost to register at Yahoo.
Once you've registered, you'll be able to log in to the fantasy sports home page, where you will find current information on all fantasy sports.
Once you've logged in, visit the Yahoo Fantasy Football Page.

Yahoo offers a pay fantasy football service, similar to ESPN Fantasy Football.
The difference is that Fantasy Football Premium Add-ons focus mainly on statistics and draft preparation instead of articles.
Wireless Access, so you can access your fantasy football information from your cellular telephone.

Fantasy Sharks: This site is specifically for the fantasy football enthusiast, though there are sister sites that host information about other fantasy sports.
Fantasy Sharks includes a message board where you can communicate with other fantasy football players around the globe to trade tips and gossip, as well as the best way to run a fantasy football league.

Fantasy football draft day - there's nothing like it.
If you play fantasy football, you know the exhilaration that accompanies draft day.
It's time to select your fantasy football team, and like every National Football League team, you have a fresh start and a new chance to win the fantasy bowl.
You have to remember that the most important part of making your fantasy football draft successful is for you to draft a winning team.
To get ready properly, you have to stay current on all of the pertinent fantasy football news.
Web sites like ESPN Fantasy Football News and NFLPLAYERS.COM are great places to start your research.
Of course, there are hundreds of amazing fantasy football web sites, so you'll need to be selective.
Trust me, every winner uses some kind of information and tip sheet, whether it is from a web site or a fantasy football magazine.
So, do your due diligence, rank your players and you'll be taking a giant step to a successful fantasy football draft.
The draft is perhaps the most important part of the fantasy football season.
Some people even bring an outdated fantasy football guide to give to others who request information.
One way to add both organization and excitement to your draft is to get a fantasy football draft kit.
Free fantasy football leagues are everywhere.
In fact, fantasy football began decades ago in basements and bars across America, as a game with no fees and lots of fun.
There are hundreds, maybe even thousands, of Fantasy Football Web Sites for information and competition.
Many free fantasy football league sites remain.
Free fantasy leagues at AOL are similar to those at other major sports web sites, like Yahoo Fantasy Football.
This is key information for fantasy football owners.
Here's an interesting twist to a free fantasy football league - a free site that offers cash prizes.
Fantasy Football Challenge has six different leagues, all with cash prizes.

Like other fantasy sports, online fantasy basketball is a game in which people join leagues at popular sites, like ESPN, and participate either with friends they invite or with other fantasy basketball enthusiasts nationwide.
What are fantasy sports without a draft?
The draft is the most anticipated event in any fantasy league.
In an online fantasy basketball draft, you will join others in cyberspace to select players based on a pre-determined draft order.
Playing online fantasy basketball in a head-to-head style is somewhat like playing opponents in a fantasy football league.
Fantasy football owners select players in a random draft and set a lineup for each week of play.
Some fantasy basketball leagues play this way, too.
The biggest difference is in the actual fantasy schedule.
A fantasy basketball league that uses a rotisserie style is one that is based on total statistical points or average statistical points for a season.
In other words, you draft your players, much like you do in fantasy football leagues and other fantasy leagues, but you do not play a head-to-head schedule.
Some traditional fantasy sports enthusiasts like this style because it is how most fantasy sports, aside from fantasy football, began.
Another interesting style of fantasy basketball is playing in a salary cap league.
Although some of the rules may be similar to other fantasy basketball leagues, salary cap leagues give owners the opportunity to incorporate the business side of professional sports into fantasy play.
Of course, this is all part of the fantasy game, so there are no real dollar amounts.
The NCAA Tournament is not only the most popular college basketball event of the year, it is a great opportunity for online fantasy sports enthusiasts to expand their horizons.
Breaking away from traditional fantasy sports like online fantasy football and online fantasy basketball, fans get a chance each March to compete in a variety of ways.
If you're between fantasy sports seasons, and you have the itch to play, here are a few ways you can get involved in NCAA tournament fantasy basketball.
The old NCAA Tournament office pool is one of online fantasy basketball's biggest traditions.
Like your bracket pools and other games, a lottery-style pool can also be played in an online fantasy basketball format.
If you are a true online fantasy basketball lover, this is the game you'll want to play.
Much like a Fantasy Football Draft, NCAA Tournament draft participants will be given a random draft order, which will alternate each round.
You've probably heard of fantasy games, but how much do you really know about online fantasy sports?
Fantasy football is certainly the most popular of all fantasy sports, with nearly 30 million participants in America and even more worldwide.
Fantasy basketball and baseball are also popular.
The world of fantasy games does not stop at these major sports, though.
If you are curious about online fantasy sports, here is what you need to know.
To truly understand fantasy sports on the web, you need to understand fantasy sports in general.
Fantasy sports can be played with just about any sport or league.
The season begins with a draft, where team owners select players from that sport and make up their own fantasy team.
Virtually every big-name web site now has a fantasy sports section, since the games have become so immensely popular.
When drafting your team, you rank players at the web site where your league is hosted, and on draft day, you and other league members literally select each player via a fantasy draft.
If you were playing in an Online Fantasy Basketball league, you would follow the same procedure, but you would draft players from the National Basketball Association.
Each week, your fantasy sports team plays against others in your league.
The results are kept in cyberspace with your online fantasy sports host, and at the end of the season, someone wins a fantasy championship.
If you want to know more about the variety of online fantasy competitions, or if you think you're ready to start playing your favorite game, Fantasy Online Sports is a good place to begin.
This site offers dozens of games from online fantasy football to basketball to auto racing to the NCAA Tournament.
Places like Yahoo might have leagues with prize money, but they do not typically offer "Pick'em" games, as does Fantasy Online Sports.
For example, if something like a football losers' pool is your kind of game, you can find it at Fantasy Online Sports.
You can learn as much about online fantasy teams at Yahoo as you will at virtually any other site.
Yahoo has detailed information and leagues for all of the major sports mentioned previously, as well as most minor sports, and its fantasy football insights are especially interesting.
If you want to play fantasy sports on the Internet, and you're a Yahoo fan, you will find all you need there.
When first told about fantasy games online, many people go to ESPN.com, one of the most popular sports sites on the Internet.
It shouldn't surprise you to find a comprehensive fantasy sports section at the world's leader in sports information.
Not only does ESPN have expert opinions on all sports, it thrives in America's favorite, fantasy football.
Fantasy NBA is a game involving playing in a league of eight to 16 teams and drafting professional basketball players from various teams.
It's all about creating your own fantasy team.
Here are some of the various facets of the fantasy NBA style.
When playing fantasy NBA, NBA player statistics are critical to your success.
In doing so, you would have a player who can score as well as a rebound, assist and steal -- all important stats in fantasy basketball.
If you are going to play fantasy basketball, you'll need a League Manager.
Like other fantasy sports, fantasy NBA has several styles of play.
Although a season-long rotisserie style is available at most online sites, classic fantasy sports enthusiasts usually prefer to play head-to-head.
At the end of the fantasy basketball season, the teams with the most wins advance to the playoffs.
The fantasy team with the most points gets a win, while the opponent gets a loss.
This is a much easier system than categories scoring, and traditional fantasy sports fans usually prefer this method of play.
If you are intrigued, but you want to add some extra flair to your fantasy fun, you might try a fantasy NBA salary cap game.
All you need to get started with fantasy basketball is a love for the game and some friends who share your passion.
When you're cheering against one of your favorite players because he's on a rival fantasy basketball team, that's when you know you're really into the game.
Animal Palace offers many animated fantasy creatures that you can adopt by clicking and downloading.
