Or you could play in NFL Playoffs fantasy football and keep on rooting for your players on your roster.

I did the same only I took it one further - I rented movies with the wife and only watched the last 5 minutes of the game...

During the fantasy season, if I have a fantasy player on a team that I hate, I root for that team to lose but for my player to have a good game.

After the fantasy season is over I could care less about a fantasy player that I HAD on my team. If I'm watching a playoff game with 2 teams that I hate, I just watch the game because its football.

I root for my fantasy players when they're on my team. Once the fantasy season is over I could care less what these players do unless they're on one of the NFL teams that I root for.


You can use it as a pre-emptive stike against your opponents. Kind of like giving a fake tell at a poker table. Constantly root for players you had so the other guys around you will overvalue them in the next draft and you can make out a big winner if one or two of these guys bite on it. It works better if they are players you had though, because they will really believe it more. Of course, no one is going to buy my Kevin Jones offseason hype, but it's worth a shot!
