Fantasy Librarian Hosts 96-Team League


When we talk about deep fantasy leagues, I'm thinking that's 14 or 16 teams. Sometimes you hear about leagues with 18 or more teams, but all those pale in comparison to the single largest league I've seen on the Web, or anywhere else for that matter.

Besides compiling one of the most comprehensive fantasy football blogs, the Fantasy Football Librarian hosts a league with 96 teams. Yeah, I did a doubletake too when I read about it.

If you haven't visited FFLibrarian, I encourage you to take the time to do so. There is a wealth of fantasy information on the site, and D.C. area residents should take note the Fantasy Librarian -- aka Sara Holladay -- grew up in Arlington and is a Post reader.

The site went up in September 2006 and ever since has been attracting avid readership, so much so that The New York Times invited her to be a guest blogger on its Fifth Down blog. She also has been profiled in Fantasy Sports and has appeared on many other Internet platforms.

On a personal note, my father worked at the Library of Congress for almost 50 years, so it was a pleasure to learn about someone in the library science field also embracing fantasy football.

Glad to hear my 96-team league is of interest! I should probably clarify though - the league is actually divided into 6 different conferences (each with their own draft, waiver wire, etc) of 16 teams. Most of the season owners will compete against the other 15 teams in their conference, but the last few weeks are devoted to pitting the conference champs against each other. So while there will be one final champion of all 96 teams, it sounds a little more insane and glamorous than it really is.

Thanks for the link to FFLibrarian!
