About Hall of Fantasy League

Hall of Fantasy League (HOFL) is the only national fantasy football league with zero barriers to entry that has disrupted the way fantasy sports are played. The HOFL combines both the season-long and week-to-week components of fantasy, allowing participants to be part of a team community while also empowering them to make their own decisions. The league features 12 national franchises – all of which are managed by professional fantasy football experts – and participants pledge their allegiance to one of them when they register, giving them exclusive access to the insights and advice of that team’s manager that they can leverage in their own gameplay. The objective for participants is twofold: 1) select the franchise they feel is best equipped to be crowned champion at season’s end based on the skills and experience of the manager or personal rooting interests; and 2) pick players based on eight tiers who they believe will be each week’s highest performers to try to accumulate the most points after 16 weeks.
