What hobby do you pivot to when fantasy football is over?

Recommended Posts

For some reason, how the championship ended for me, having a harder time filling the hobby void.

what do you all turn to? Think I’m getting back into improved fitness and cooking skills, and also trying some games I haven’t tried yet. 

anyone else struggle with the first week transition?

You're spending entirely too much time on fake football if you're dropping your other hobbies.

Not dropping, just took some discretionary time from them to put into fantasy football.

Let me re-phrase that it's not necessarily a struggle, but that I am passionate about the types of research and effort required to make informed football decisions (even though most times they don't work out lol). Probably can be transferred to other hobbies.

MMA DFS and gambling.  Get into that a bit and you’ll think NFL officiating is good.

Focusing more on my real life work. 

I am doing some file cleanup on my laptop....holy hell....I have about 25 versions of fantasy football spreadsheets that I just deleted.

If you’re feeling fantasy football withdrawals they still have DFS contests that run all the way through the Super Bowl. And if you’re into NBA/NHL/MLB there’s tons of DFS contests for those leagues.

So basically unless you’re in one of the states where DFS is illegal, that’s a decent enough supplement to fill the void until August comes back around.

I actually look forward to the fantasy football offseason though. I’m usually so burned out by this point it’s nice to have time to focus on work and other things.

listen to some joe rogan podcast on youtube instead of watching fantasy football videos. Also if you are a fan of the movie the karate kid from 1984 give cobra kai a look on youtube.(It is a sequel with the same actors 35 years and it tells the events of that movie thru johnny's perspective Also watch the video daniel is the real bully on youtube it is hilarious.)

Ozarks on netflix is another good watch if you enjoyed breaking bad you will enjoy ozarks.

I really do not bother with fantasy basketball or fantasy baseball as neither sport interest me like the nfl.

I usually spend a lot of time planning to so some things with my life and find more hobbies.

After a few months of that, it's time to start thinking about fantasy football again.

I really hate it. I'm an adult why can't i blow my money on DFS. I used to be able to get around it using a VPN but i don't think it works anymore.

If you ask me having DFS/gambling be illegal is un-american.

Spending more time talking to my wife. 

Not reading fantasy football websites on my laptop in bed late in the evening.

This will hopefully lead to other activities..

That does blow. New York was the same way but thankfully they fast tracked a bill a couple years back to legalize it.

It does seem like roughly half of the remaining nine states that are holding out are considering new DFS legislation, but yeah it’s annoying as hell having to wait months/years for a bunch of a**hole politicians to agree on how to allocate the tax revenue. 

I remember when it was illegal in New York I used to use some really shady DFS site (I think it was called Fantasy Aces?) but pretty sure it ended up going bankrupt not soon after so probably not an option anymore.

I used to live in NY back when it was illegal and i used a VPN no problem.

Then i moved to GA and I remember it being legal and played DFS for years.

Then I moved to HI and it was extremely illegal like everything else there and i don't think my VPN worked.

Now im WA and of course its illegal and VPN doesn't work.

Yikes. Yeah Washington is pretty notorious for having extremely strict anti-sports gambling laws (you can thank the tribal casinos for that). You’ll probably have to move again before you resume your DFS career.

But hey at least pot’s legal?
