The Thanksgiving Day Only-Fantasy Football League

You've always wanted to try fantasy football, but you were worried that doing so would make you irresistibly attractive to members of the opposite sex. At work, people knowing you even dabbled in fantasy football would mean you'd be stuck taking regular breaks to accept on-the-spot sexual favors. Or, failing that, you keep meaning to watch the Detroit Lions lose by three scores on Thanksgiving afternoon, but are torn because sitting in a turkey-rank dining room drinking too sweet wine, talking about "life" with friends and family members is equally compelling.

This all gets fixed today.

Now you can live your fantasy football GM dreams and wake up on Friday without actually having to be someone with a fantasy football team. Now, finally, you will have something to "share" with dear friends and family on this day, and it won't involve some musty board game or pet-chewed Jenga pieces or doing dishes together while listening to The Corrs. Together you can all sit and see if Shaun "Mayflower" Hill can hurl the touchdown pass that will bring your father-in-law to silent, fist-chewing tears. Download the following PDF, share it with your friends/hated family members ASAP and get drafting the one-day only Thanksgiving Day Fantasy Team that will change the dynamic of this blessed day… uh… beyond repair.

Fantasy football league isn't really something that translates well to other sporting codes, is it? 'Fantasy cricket league' just doesn't sound as exciting.

Oh, but they have it. Fantasy cricket exists.

My favorite fantasy cricket is Jiminy

Wait, how do passing touchdowns scoring-wise? If you have the QB and the receiver, do you get 12 points?

That's how it traditionally works, yep. For example, two weeks ago, I had Roddy White and Matt Ryan. 64 fantasy points between them.

"…or doing dishes together while listening to The Corrs."

THE HORROR. The horror….

I'm in 5 fantasy football leagues already. AND I AM GONNA DO THIS.

You forgot Aaron Hernandez, the Pats TE. But then again, vaguely Mexican-sounding folk have no place in Thanksgiving, so I'll assume that was intentional.

BTW, in our draft last night — THAT'S RIGHT! — we realized that Braylon Edwards plays for the Jets.

Also, I BUILT A SPREADSHEET FOR LIVE SCORING.

Anyone looking to do this again this year, 2013, I made a new draft card / excel document to follow along and play. Print them out from here: http://bit.ly/TGivingDraft13

Enjoy!
