With fantasy football talk starting to pick up it brought up an interesting question. How many of you actually participate in any fantasy football leagues? Are they free, or paid leagues? I've never been in any paid leagues, myself, and only joined a few free ones. I ended up forgetting about them halfway through the season and probably getting dead last (I really couldn't tell you). That's not the reason I started this topic, though. I just thought that was more of a general question that you might have to be able to answer before being able to answer the real question. When you do, for those of you who do, participate in fantasy leagues does that make you want to go out and obtain cards of players that are on your fantasy roster? I can see how some people might think they have a special bond with certain players that are on their fantasy rosters, so I don't think it's probably that unlikely that this actually happens. I also don't think it's very unlikely that prices of some of these guy's cards increase in value prior to the season while people are starting to fill their fantasy teams.
