Fantasy football breaks bonds and creates chaos, giving the NFL its meaning and worth. Without fantasy football, the NFL would be nothing.
Played by girls, guys and all grade levels, fantasy football allows people to create imaginary teams made up of real professional football players. In 1962, Wilfred Winkenbach, one time Oakland Raiders limited partner, created the first recorded fantasy football team. It was created for fans to feel like they had a more active role in the NFL.
