Fantasy Football Leagues

Fantasy Football Leagues got their start one night in 1962 among a group of Oakland Raiders staff members. The league was initially called the greater Oakland Pigskin Prognosticators League (GOPPL). Raider’s limited partner Bill Winkenbach formed it at the time with the assistance of two staff members during a two-week stay on the East Coast. At first members of the Oakland Raiders, organization only played the fantasy football leagues. We encourage people to follow the whole league and not just the Raiders. The rules are similar to today based on statistical performance. However, big-money payoffs were $2.50 for kickoff returns and a $5.00 returned for a touchdown by defensive lineman. The first player chosen in the best fantasy football league ever was Houston quarterback, George Blanda. The only award given was to the loser, a wooden football with a dunce cap on it that he had to portray proudly in their home.
