Best ball fantasy football leagues: How I play in 500+ leagues every season. ๐Ÿ‘€

Updated: Jul 4, 2023

I play in 500+ fantasy football leagues every year.


Technically that is not a lie nor exaggeration.

But is ๐—ถ๐˜€ a little misleading.

See, 97% of the leagues I play in require ๐—ญ๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ข in-season maintenance.

You literally ๐—–๐—”๐—ก'๐—ง do anything with your team once the draft is over.

You can't set your lineups.

You can't add or drop players.

You can't make trades.

For 17 weeks, you just sit back and watch your superior draftโ€”assuming you're a Basement Brewed Fantasy Football subscriberโ€”demolish your 11 league-mates.

They're called "best ball fantasy football leagues." Here's how they work... ๐Ÿ‘‡

To account for bye weeks and injuries, you draft 18-20 rounds so that every team has a deep roster.

Generally speaking, you want 2-3 QBs, 4-6 RBs, 7-9 WRs and 2-3 TEs.

The amount of players you want at each position depends on what draft capital you invested in the position prior.

(Of course, BBFF subscribers receive guidance on roster construction to help you figure that out as you go).

Instead of setting lineups, each week you're automatically awarded the points of whatever your optimal lineup would have been.

In other words, you're automatically given the points of whoever your best 1 QB, best 2 RBs, best 3 WRs, best 1 TE and best 1 flex was that week.

So for example, let's say you have both Aaron Rodgers and Jordan Love on your team (awkward).

And there's some random week where the worst QB in football, Aaron Rodgers, has a solid day and somehow outscores the best QB in football, Jordan Love.

Instead of you having to predict it ahead of time, you're automatically given the points.

You can play on Underdog and Drafters, and because they offer "slow drafts" (8 hours allowed per pick), I literally have 40-50 drafts going at once all summer long.

So if you find yourself missing fantasy football and not wanting to wait until August...

You don't have to. You can find leagues for as low as one dollar, ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜„.

So go ahead an scratch the itch. BBFF Draft Rankings are coming in July!

And until then, we workshop best ball strategy and picks frequently in our subscriber Discord Channel!

One of my subscribers, Derek Devereaux, turned a $4 best ball league into a $2,000 paycheck last year.

500x ROI?

Not too bad for a low-cost investment that required zero in-season attention, eh?
