It's almost the beginning of Bills Training Camp and the beginning of camp means Training Camp Fantasy Football.
The first day of camp is exciting. Every other day is a 'shovel to the face' reminder that the Regular season is still weeks away. Why not make each day of camp as thrilling as the first with a Training Camp Fantasy Football League?
Just divide the Bills hefty camp roster with a draft and then use the point system below. I encourage any football fan to get a few friends together and follow our simple guide. Last year, 6 people played Training Camp Fantasy Football. I hope to increase that number to 8-or-9 this year!
You don't even have to be a football fan. You could hate football. The thought of football could make your stomach reflexes send bile up your esophagus. Football may have hurt your parents. I do find it hard to believe that someone who hates football would click on and read a story about a Training Camp Fantasy Football League.
