Football season is upon us, which means it's time for Fantasy Football, specifically, TSN Fantasy Football CFL Edition.
It's a salary cap game, which offers the opportunity to pick any player you'd like to build your weekly roster, so long as you're willing to pay the price and can fit it under the salary cap.
Each week, you get to select a team consisting of: one quarterback, one running back, two receivers, one flex spot (running back or receiver), one kicker and one defence/special teams, all while staying under the $1-million salary cap.
So, you want to go with Most Outstanding Player Jon Cornish? No problem. That will cost $300K, so you better be able to find some bargains in order to fill out the rest of your roster while staying under the cap. A little challenging, but making those choices is part of the fun.
The Grand Prize -- which is also pretty fun -- will be awarded for the best overall rank from June 26 through November 8. The winner receives a trip for two to the 102nd Grey Cup in Vancouver. In addition to airfare and hotel accomodation for the game, the Grand Prize package will give you some style points with a Joseph Abboud suit from Moores.
There will also be $250 prize packages each week courtesy of Moores and TSN.
Create a group and play with your friends and check the Consenus Picks to see where you might find some value compared to the rest of the participants.
Get your picks in before the first game each week and see how it plays out, then get ready to do it all over again as you make changes for the next week.
This may be fantasy, but the competition is real!
