Let's face it, the fantasy football canon doesn't need another "it's a good idea to wait until late to pick your kicker" kind of book. This one covers the bases of types of leagues, types of scoring systems, and so forth in a couple of chapters, and then gets on to the main entree.
His chapter on ranking players tells some hard truths and gives the reader a solid foundation for doing (or not doing) his or her own research. The rest of the book deals thoroughly with the strategy and tactics involved in being in a league, from the draft through to trades, choosing your lineup, and other areas, in greater detail than is offered in any other source.
Really, the only other book that has anything useful beyond what's here is Zarzycki's "Drafting to Win". Zarzycki has a couple of good ideas in his book, as well as a whole lot of terrible ones, and it has to be recognized that he has the most highly evolved understanding of how strategies have to be fluid during the course of the draft. But Hendricks has summarized Zarzycki's positive contributions in a few pages, which is probably as much as any fantasy football player needs to see.
All in all, a great book, and a stunningly good bargain at $19.95.
My 13 year old son and I enjoy football weekends and wanted to learn how to play fantasy football. A close friend recommended we check out the Fantasy Football Guidebook by Sam Hendricks. WOW, this book sure made it easy. We got started last year by joining a league and this year my son set up our own league. We found the book to be an easy read and still reference it for tips and winning strategies. Learning to play FF with my son is one the best things we've done to strengthen our relationship and has significantly enhanced our enjoyment of professional football in general. If you plan or want to join the millions that play FF, this book is a must!
