Fantasy Football Boards

creating an etsy shop

Let me just start by saying ... football is a love of mine, or rather the Buffalo Bills are a love of mine. I have been following them since I left Buffalo 21 years ago.

I'll spare you the many many more pictures that I have in my Bills Vault and move on to what I really wanted to talk about ... Fantasy Football.

I started playing years ago ... so many years that I don't remember how many ... I would guess 9 or 10.  Anyways I started my own league about 7 years ago to help teach my brothers and other friends how to play.  {side note: if you've never been in a league it is really hard to get someone to let you "learn" in their league ... people take this stuff seriously}

Unlike most leagues I hold a Live Draft {for those of you that don't play - a lot of leagues draft online in an automated draft room on ESPN or CBS Sports}.  During a live draft everyone gets together and we write down our pics on a draft board.  This is harder because you have to pay attention to who has already been taken and have your own rankings printed out {although I provide ESPN's rankings} and of course commentary from everyone else.  However it is SO MUCH MORE FUN - and an excuse to eat pizza and wings - as if you should need one.

My friend - and owner of a fantasy team in my league - Gavin had the great idea of creating a draft board and printing it out of a plotter {blueprint printer} rather than buying the Fantasy Draft Kit online which can be $100+

So that is what we have done each year

So why am I sharing this with you? Other than I love to share that I'm a Bills fan every chance I can get?

I am now selling these Printable Fantasy Football Draft Boards in my Etsy Shop

I have mine printed at Florida Blueprint here in Sarasota but any Blueprint Shop will do.  The one listed in my shop is a standard 12 man league with 16 rounds - however I can always accommodate larger or smaller leagues as well as additional rounds.

If you haven't had a live draft for your league yet - maybe this is the year to try it out!
