We are about to embark on the couple week stretch in which both the fantasy baseball and fantasy football season are underway at the exact same time. It can be frustrating to split your attention between both sports, but most fantasy fans clearly prefer one to the other. For those of you with a love of everything pigskin, here the top-five reasons why fantasy football is better than fantasy baseball.
In fantasy baseball, there are head-to-head leagues, rotisserie leagues, weekly rotisserie leagues, and even AL/NL only leagues. Luckily, fantasy football is much simpler. It only comes down to points in fantasy football and most leagues are touchdown-heavy.
The NFL has put billions into their television program in recent seasons, and as a result, there are suddenly football games on Sunday, Monday, Thursday, and even Saturday. Fantasy fans will get plenty of chances to watch their players go wild on national television on a weekly basis, which is a rarity in fantasy baseball.
In fantasy baseball, there are thousands of stats. Sabermetrics and Billy Beane have not only changed the face of the sport, but they have changed the face of fantasy baseball as well. There are simply too many stats to keep track of nowadays, and thankfully fantasy football is much more cut and dry.
The fantasy baseball season can be painfully long. It stretches over 23 weeks; including a week off for the All-Star break in the middle of the year. Football is 16 quick weeks and wraps up much faster than the fantasy baseball season. Football is simply easier to pay attention to throughout the season.
Nothing makes you jump out of your seat faster than someone on your roster scoring a touchdown. Everyone loves home runs, but they simply can’t compete with the thrill of a fantasy player reaching pay-dirt.
