You're on the clock! NFL Fantasy Football on NFL.com, the official game of the NFL, Wednesday launches Live Drafts delivered by Papa John's.
Fans now may start their fantasy season with their league's draft. The voice of Commissioner Goodell kicks off every draft with the words that officially started the 75th NFL Draft that took place this April.
"Okay, you guys ready to get started? Let's get started," Goodell says amidst cheers from fans at Radio City Music Hall. "The 2010 NFL Draft is officially open."
For fantasy players who want to gain an advantage on their fellow team owners, NFL.com has a new "Mock Draft" feature. Mock drafts are on-going on the site for players to test their draft strategies prior to their real drafts. Mock drafts start every five minutes and are available to anyone who signs up.
NFL Fantasy Football presented by Verizon is the only game that contains video highlights, with thousands of game highlights that make fantasy football come to life, including, for the first time, in-game highlights. Fans will enjoy game highlights and video analysis throughout the season, customized to each fan's team and individual fantasy matchups. Highlights of all significant fantasy scoring plays will be integrated into the platform, making Game Day on NFL.com the ultimate fantasy experience. In addition, hours of pregame video, including analysis and fantasy advice, help fans manage their rosters and set their lineups each week.
NFL Fantasy Football is available on two free platforms. The first, NFL Custom League, provides fans the opportunity to customize a league for their friends. The second, NFL-Managed League, allows fans to play in a league run by NFL.com and win official NFL prizes.
The 2010 season will be the first time operations of NFL Fantasy Football are in-house. In August 2007, NFL brought the operations of NFL.com in-house and re-launched the site. NFL.com is the home for the most NFL highlights and video on the web.
