We could have just come out with the same old fantasy leagues for high school sports but that would be boring. If we wanted boring, we would play Yatzee. We decided that the world of sports fantasy leagues needed a serious and extreme upgrade to take it to the next level. Welcome to PrepSportFantasy.com and it’s 3 modes of fantasy league. Let check out what this all means followed by simple instructions to keep your head from literally popping off (for which, we are not liable).
First of all, you can choose which mode of fantasy league you want as the owner of the league (the initial person who sets up the league and sends out invites) when you set up the league. There will be a little dropdown menu where you can pick which mode you want. Once, you select the mode, it’s set for the season. Worst case, you could start another league with a different mode but we’re not suppose to tell you that work-around secret so please don’t read what you just read.
Straight Fantasy League Mode
This is just your good old-fashion fantasy league set up but it’s some serious fun. Basically, you have up to 8 players in a league you complete with. You arrange your draft to choose players from your league based on their stats and/or their past season stats. The stats are dependent on sport. Since football comes first in the season, let’s look at their stats. The standard stats are Yards Passed, Yards Received, Yards Rushed, Field Goals, Touchdowns, and Interceptions. You’ll notice that the stats spread across different high school player positions. Yards Received is specific to Receivers and maybe Running Backs. Obviously, Yards Passed is a QB stat. The last 3 may be weighted in your league to give them more weight due to either importance and scarcity. A fieldgoal should be 3 points. A touchdown should be 7 (we’ll assume the extra point) and an interception (and fumble recovery in some leagues) is 10 because it’s the stuff we live for as prep sport fans. You accumulate points each week which are entered into each category by players, fans, and the illustrious StatMasters (all hail) and the player with the most points at the end of the season wins. It’s straight forward and easy. But real fun!
Bling Fantasy League Mode
Now for a twist. We use to love playing the game Risk where some strategy came in handy as player rose and fell during the course of a game. Bling Mode is no different. You can choose from up to 10 Perks and/or Traps to either improve your chances or knock your opponents chances. Basically, the Perks kick up your stats on selected players/stat categories or knocks down your opponents stats on selected players/categories. You even have some that protect you from other players Traps. Do you go all offensive and attach their stats or do you go defensive and try to protect yours? Ahhh…there in lies the game. If one player’s team starts running away with the league due to their prep sport players having great games, guess what happens…the other players all come after him and it re-balances. It’s awesome! It’s the best of both worlds and it’s all yours for free.
Vegas Fantasy League Mode
Vegas has all the fun of Bling Mode with perks and traps but not the system randomly applies the traps/perks evenly to each player. Take a chance at the roulette wheel. It’s still really cool, though. What if your have a star player who just goes nuts on points this week but the Vegas Mode dings that player…or kicks his/her stats up? You see the potential for some serious mayhem now. Will lady luck shine on your Stats this week?
So these are the three modes of prep sport Fantasy League. It’s hard to say which is more fun. We’re probably partial to Bling Mode but that’s just because we like to mess with people. Wanna Play??
