Win Your fantasy Football League with Help from Xfinity

I’ve been part of a fantasy football league with my family for the past several years. We mostly do it for fun, but I don’t think any of us would deny that we want to take home the championship trophy each year.

Winning the league isn’t easy, though. It takes a lot of research and a little bit of luck. Beyond crossing your fingers, there’s nothing you can really do about the luck part. However, there’s a lot you can do about the research part—especially if you’re an Xfinity customer.

WiFi as Fast and Reliable as Your RB1

Anyone who has ever played fantasy football knows that critical “sit or start” decisions often happen minutes before game time. Anyone who has suffered from unreliable WiFi in those important moments knows that a bad connection can make or break your season.

Fast and reliable WiFi is essential when you’re awaiting last-second news about the health and status of your starters. With Xfinity Internet, you’ll have no problem checking all the fantasy sports websites to optimize your lineup right before kickoff.

Incredible Zone Coverage

Whether you’re in a family league like I am or competing against your roommates, Xfinity has some game-changing perks—like full WiFi coverage throughout your home. Personally, I use Xfinity’s xFi Pods to eliminate the WiFi “dead spots” in my home. This means I never have to worry about a lack of WiFi coverage when I sneak off to a corner of my house with my phone or tablet to execute that last-minute free agent pickup my opponent wasn’t expecting.

Running some Sunday errands and need to make a lineup change outside your home? Xfinity has you covered there, too. There are millions of free Xfinity WiFi hotspots nationwide that you can access for free if you’re an Xfinity Internet customer.

Real-time Fantasy Stats

The best part about managing a fantasy football team as an Xfinity customer might be the Xfinity Sports App. Not only does the Sports App give you a quick and easy way to jump between games, it also shows real-time individual player statistics.

This means no more wondering about how many yards passing, rushing, or receiving your player has. Just pull up the Sports App, navigate over to a team’s statistics, and see your player’s full statistics.

If you’re lucky, you might even stumble upon a player with some great statistics that hasn’t been claimed by anyone in your fantasy league yet.

Xfinity’s Unstoppable Screen Play

Come game time, Xfinity gives you lots of choices to watch your fantasy team rack up the points from home. You can watch the games on television via your Xfinity X1 box, or you can stream them anywhere in your home on your smartphone or tablet using the Xfinity Stream app.

Even when you’re not at home, Xfinity gives you access to select channels in the Stream app. As a side benefit, if you happen to be watching a game with your opponent and your fantasy player scores a touchdown, you can use the rewind and instant replay features to rub it in your opponent’s face… over and over again.
