Three Reasons to Play Fantasy Football + A GIVEAWAY!

I know, I know I can’t believe it myself… I am a girl who loves playing fantasy football! I never grew up a huge fan of NFL football (my family was all about College Gameday and cheering on our Florida Gators) but I didn’t have an affinity for any professional team. However, my extended family resides in Wisconsin and they live, eat, and breathe Packers football! #GoPackGo I will never forget visiting them in Green Bay a few years ago, and my uncle took me to Lambeau field and told me all about the history and what gameday is like (he even owns a piece of the field!). Ever since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for those crazy cheeseheads!

So now, I have a blast playing in my all-girls Fantasy Football league. It’s so fun each week competing with my friends and figuring out who is going to make you the most points. So if you don’t play, then please let me tell you my top three reasons you should play Fantasy!

{ONE: Even the girliest girls become “one of the boys”}

It’s safe to say that I’ve never been “one of the boys;” I mean, most guys don’t want to chat about my most recent shopping score or share tales of killer sales! ha! But now that I’m playing Fantasy Football we actually have something in common- and I’ve got some conversation fodder on a date 🙂 

{TWO: Football Sunday’s become the highlight of your week!}

Seriously y’all- I now LOVE watching football games on Sundays because I like to watch my players and see how they are doing (I also pay attention to players I may want to pick up) – I know, who am I? 

{THREE: There’s a lot of wine involved + fun memories}

All I can say is that draft day involves wine, food, + lots of silly girl time! None of us knew what we were doing this year, and we cracked up trying to draft our teams and come up with the best roster. There’s nothing better than making memories with your girlfriends!

Sweater: c/o Ugly Christmas Sweater // Pants: Lilly Pulitzer Travel Pants (best pants ever!) // Boots: Sam Edelman Penny Boots // Headband: borrowed from my Aunt 🙂 // Photography: Capture the Ride

Now it’s your turn! You can win a sweater of your choice (either NFL, Christmas-themed, or just plain “ugly”) from– use the rafflecopter below to enter! Good Luck!

    Your sweater is adorable! My husband's family are also big packers fan and they would get a kick out of it. I've played fb one season and my team sucked, so now I just play vicariously through my husband's teams.

    Fantasy football is lots of fun especially with friends. And if you are girl that plays fantasy sports the guys will be amazed 😉 I was interested for a long time in it and after that I came across Daily Lineups where you can get a guide on fantasy sports. Its a great place to start.
