There is no better place to dominate than fantasyfactor.com the home of the one day fantasy leagues.
With beginners, figuring out which type of fantasy football league to join can be very confusing. It's like figuring a quarterback passer's rating without a calculator. Here's an explanation I have put together regarding the popular types of fantasy football leagues.
The Standard Draft League is the most popular among other fantasy football leagues . It generally begins with teams selecting all their players in a serpentine style draft. Owners then set their lineups each week based on the number of players per position allowed by its rules.
There are basically two different types of standard draft fantasy football leagues; head-to-head and total points. In a head-to-head league, a team matches up against a different team each week with the team receiving the most points of the two that particular week being awarded a win while the other team is given a loss. At the end of the regular season, teams with the best won/loss records meet in the playoffs to decide an eventual champion. Total points leagues do not track wins and losses, rather teams accumulate points on an ongoing basis with standings being determined by the teams' total points. The teams that build the highest total points at the end of the regular season advance to the playoffs.

Survivor Leagues: On a weekly basis all a fantasy owner needs to do is avoid having the lowest score of all teams in the league. Of course, as the weeks go by and the number of teams drops, it becomes increasingly difficult to do just that. The last team remaining after all others have been booted is the survivor and is crowned league champion.
