The United Football League just opened its doors a few weeks ago and is looking for a way to become more popular. One way for the UFL to become more popular is to get people to play in UFL Fantasy Football leagues. A large percentage of people watching the NFL are more interested in their fantasy players than their actual players. But how do you play UFL Fantasy Football?
The first thing you must figure out in order to have a UFL Fantasy Football league is the rules on choosing players. If you have more than four players in your UFL Fantasy Football league then you can’t each draft different players. Choosing players each week will have to be more like a NFL Survival League where you can choose a team each week and then you can’t choose them again.
For example, let’s say your UFL Fantasy Football league has eight players. Each week every team in the UFL Fantasy Football league can choose whatever starting quarterback they want. Two opponents might end up with the same quarterbacks, all eight teams could have the same quarterback. But to ensure that every team doesn’t use the best quarterback every week make a rule that you can only use each quarterback two times. So if Team 1 in your UFL Fantasy Football league uses Brooks Bollinger Week 1 and Week 2 then he can’t play Brooks Bollinger again the rest of the year. All positions will be the same as quarterback. Each week each team in the UFL Fantasy Football league will choose whatever players they want as long as they haven’t used them twice that season.
The next important thing to decide in a UFL Fantasy Football league is whether to use defensive units or individual defensive players. In most NFL Fantasy Football leagues team will use defensive units but in a UFL Fantasy Football league its a better idea to use individual defensive players. Even though each team in your UFL Fantasy Football league has a limit of how many times they can use an individual player there is still going to be lineups that are pretty similar. If your UFL Fantasy Football league uses individual defensive players instead of units then that will make the chances of having unique lineups greater.
In your UFL Fantasy Football league you can choose whatever positions and the amount of positions you want but my suggestion is to start one quarterback, one running back, two wide receivers, one tight end, one defensive back, one defensive lineman, one linebacker and one kicker.
Every UFL Fantasy Football league can decide on their own set of points but again here are some suggestions:
1 point per 50 yards
4 points per touchdown
-2 points per interception
1 point per 20 yards
6 points per touchdown
-2 points per fumble
1 point per tackle
3 points per sack
3 points per interception
3 points per forced fumble
3 points per recovered fumble
1 point per extra point
3 points for field goals less than 40 yards
4 points for field goals from 40 – 49 yards
5 points for field goals of 50 yards or more
