The NFL season is just around the corner, which means fantasy football season will be here even sooner.
This season, NFL.com is out to make one of its most popular features even better.
For the 2010 season, NFL.com is the home of the official NFL fantasy football game, and it won’t just be your average fantasy platform.
The biggest addition — it will be the world’s only NFL fantasy game with video, including extensive in-game highlights.
Now, when Knowshon Moreno busts out an 80-yard touchdown run, you can celebrate the fantasy points he earned you while watching the highlight.
NFL.com will provide two free platforms. NFL Custom League lets fans customize a league with their friends, while NFL-Managed League will be a league run by NFL.com that will allow fans to win official NFL prizes.
The game will feature free and fast live scoring, as it is tied to the league’s GSIS — Game Statistics and Information System — meaning the score updates will be almost instantaneous.
In another new feature, for the first time ever, player projections will be tied to Madden NFL 11. As player ratings change on the video game, player projections are adjusted on NFL.com for the most up-to-date information.
NFL.com also has the game-day inactives and injury reports before any other site, provides users with a drag-and-drop function to simplify roster adjustments, and will provide a comprehensive “Activity Feed” for each player and league.
The feed contains breaking news about each player’s fantasy team, transactions, injury reports, discussions and league-manager changes all in one place.
Click here to get started — it’s never too early.
