Fantasy Impact

Those of you who play fantasy football may be wondering about the expanded thursday schedule and its impact on fantasy football. Well, I am too. I, for one, dislike Thursday night football. Here are some things that may cause a negative effect for fantasy owners.

  • Thursday night games shorten the week for players and fantasy players alike. Players have less time to game plan and less time to heal.
  • Will the shortened week effect the overall play of Thursday games. For example less scoring for Thursday games compared to Sunday games.
  • Fantasy players have less time to research and make a decision on who to play.
  • Fantasy writers must now come out with updates much more frequently. If they dont, more pressure falls on the fantasy owner.
  • Will NFL scheduling now have a bigger impact on a fantasy draft. For example, how much rest a team has between games, cross country travel and how a Thursday night game will fit into this.
Well here are some things to think about when preparing for the next fantasy season and draft. Thoughts?
