Hey folks, there's a brand new fantasy football game in town, and it was built by SB Nation. As many of you know, my full time job is working on the Vox Media product team, and we just launched Pick 6 Football. Here's the skinny!
With the NFL season starting tomorrow, fantasy football is on everyone's mind. You've already had your drafts and are ready to compete against a small group of your friends.
What's missing from a traditional fantasy league? You're given no opportunity to escape from a bad draft, an unfortunate injury, or terrible luck. The ability to play matchups each week instead of hoping for the best is severely limited. You also have a ton of friends out there that you can't play with!
The solution? SB Nation Pick 6 Football. We've designed a fantasy game that allows you to play the matchups and compete against a large group of people across your real life, your favorite blog and the SB Nation network.
There is no draft - instead, you are given a salary cap of $120 and have to fill out a lineup of six players each week: Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Kicker, and a Wild Card slot that is comprised of all positions other than QB.
It's a simple, fun game that you only need to play once a week. You will compete on a blog leaderboard against fellow fans! There are awesome badges to win for various accomplishments in the game, and connecting Pick 6 to Facebook will make it easy to showcase your lineup and awards to your friends.
