Fantasy Football Betting Centers On Running Backs And QB's

Fantasy football is unlike any other fantasy sport in the fact that the NFL season is so short, that owners almost have to draft perfectly for a chance to win big. With only a thirteen or fourteen week season, owners that hit the quarterback and running back jackpot on draft day usually win their league.

The game has been set up so that every NFL fan can play, regardless of their knowledge of the sport. The Internet has provided an arena where owners can do a minimal amount of research and come up with a strategy to win. There is a reason that millions of people play the game, and not just a select few.

Having a premiere quarterback is usually a recipe for success. Not too many owners have done poorly the past six years if they have had Drew Brees, Tom Brady, or Peyton Manning on their team. The same can be said for the running back position, where Adrian Peterson has been on the short list for owners looking to win a championship.

Every year, however, it is the luck of the draw that carries one team over another. Gamblers are used to putting their betting hopes in the hands of others, and that holds true in fantasy sports as well. Even the most well laid out plans can sometimes be trumped by an owner who happens to be in the right place at the right time.

Last season, Michael Vick was an afterthought for fantasy owners. In most leagues, Vick was not even drafted, with owners instead moving in the direction of Kevin Kolb. Vick emerged not only as the starter, but one of the highest scoring players in fantasy last season. in one year, Vick has gone from the outhouse to a first round pick in most leagues.

The same can be said for Arian Foster. The little-known Foster was drafted at an average draft position of the sixth or seventh round last year. By mid-season, Foster had emerged as the top scoring running back in the league. Like Vick, Foster is now going in the top half of the first round in many fantasy drafts that have been conducted in recent weeks.

There are less than two weeks left before the start of the regular season, but the betting has already begun. Fantasy owners everywhere are deciding which NFL players to place their money on, but regardless of their choices, winning and losing will rest on fate, and the right combination, much like the lottery.
