There is an argument to be made that fantasy football and beer belong in the same category as peanut butter + jelly, chicken + rice, and bacon + eggs. After all, drinking beer and playing Fantasy Football is becoming an American tradition. If you haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for?
Every Sunday between the months of September and January, millions of people across the United States crack open a beer at 11 a.m. while setting their lineup. Not sure who to start at wide receiver this week while Jarvis Landry is on bye? Take a few sips of your Big Storm Firestorm Black IPA and go with your gut. After all, drinking beer helps you become more attractive and make better decisions, right? Why would Fantasy Football be excluded from that equation?
Not only does drinking beer help you make better decisions while setting your lineup each Sunday, it’ll also help you during your draft. Too many fantasy football owners leave the fate of their team up to “projections” and “average draft position.” We say, forget that. If you want to draft DeVante Parker in the eighth round or DeSean Jackson in the seventh, don’t let some “expert fantasy football” analyst change your mind!
“Just finish your beer and draft the player that you want, in the round that you want,” says Kyle Bombardier, owner of 360 Fantasy Football Draft Boards. Sure, you might get a few odd looks if you go with a kicker in the fifth, does that really matter if you just finished a cold Big Storm Arcus IPA?
There are few greater pleasures in life than drinking a cold beer while watching the RedZone channel in your recliner. Throw in great company, some buffalo chicken wings, and a smartphone to get live updates on your fantasy football score, and you just entered football heaven.
