Season-long NFL fantasy football platform is a long-term business

Season-long NFL fantasy football platform is for the long haul, both in terms of monetary gains and branding.

A season-long NFL fantasy football website is for fun, to say the least. It offers a wide variety of draft types, game-plays and has thrills spread out in the season as well as post-season. There’s a reason why draft parties are so popular because they are mostly held by season-long NFL fantasy football players who are possibly playing each other for years.

As the National Football League (NFL) season kicks off in September, businesses have a golden opportunity of a “business tease” . That means they can create pre-season buzz on their fantasy football website, engage users throughout the NFL season, create interesting new games during Super Bowl and event finale and then create fantasy leagues post-season.

What makes season-long NFL a lucrative business?

NFL fan base is growing worldwide. NFL is massive. There are 32 teams, it’s five months long season, there are 1,696 players which gives a variety of options to fantasy football users. Add to that the fact that over 17 million people in America alone play American football. This makes NFL the king of fantasy sports business. NFL fantasy football websites focused on season-long games are able to engage users for the entire year because most people are in it for fun compared to users of daily fantasy sports. Here are some features that make season-long NFL a great business proposition.

# 1 Variety of drafts

There are mainly three kinds of drafts that are offered in season-long games. They are snake drafts, straight drafts and auction drafts. The keeper and dynasty leagues also make it deeply engaging. Entrepreneurs wanting to create season-long NFL football website can also opt for UK season-long or US season-long to further increase options for users.

# 2 Average draft position

Season-long truly tests both users’ knowledge and passion for NFL. Users can utilize the Average Draft Position (ADP) to their advantage, they can manipulate the way their draft pans out based off of how others would value certain players as against how users themselves value those players. A user’s strategy depends on value via ADP like players falling in drafts owing to injuries or sneaky rookies nobody else is convinced would pay off but a user may think they would.  

# 3 Good time period to draft

Season-long attracts seasoned as well as new players also because users get ample period to research, think and change their drafts. Users may spend weeks or even months preparing their drafts and that also opens windows of inviting friends and peers on to the platform.

# 4 Scope for rewards

If you are smart, you will not make your users wait for the entire season before they win something. Several season-long NFL websites carry weekly cash prizes or side-bets like best record or most number of points etc.

# 5 Fantasy NFL is every fan’s need

Millennials born in the 80s and 90s grew up watching legends like Tony Dorsett, Dallas Cowboys or Danny White. Their obsession for NFL now is such that they cannot miss a single chance of knowing their favourite players up, close and personal. Fantasy NFL websites give them a platform to choose their favourite players and make their own fantasy leagues. This generation cannot imagine watching NFL without playing the fantasy version of it. As a result, it opens up monetization opportunities for a fantasy NFL football website or platform.

# 6 Fantasy NFL connects people

There may be an NFL fan sitting in California who may be interacting with his counterpart sitting in North Carolina. NFL as a brand holds value in uniting people which automatically makes it a patriotic game. Therefore, investing in a season-long NFL fantasy football platform is both lucrative and lasting.

# 7 Post-season play-off challenge

If fans could help it, they would not let NFL season go away. They are obsessed, it’s their life. When users play season-long fantasy NFL, it involves a lot of the same people year in and out. Entrepreneurs can make every week of the fantasy football post-season matter. They can use a post-season fantasy league as a way of letting the users determine their draft order for future league drafts. Users who think, say Eddie Lacy should have been their pick back in the summer or CJ Anderson didn’t perform as expected – will want a second chance at these players. They would want these players to perform as expected in a post-season league. Users can still play the Playoff challenge of NFL even when the season is over.
