This season, HOFL has grown to 12 national franchises – all with general managers who are prominent pro fantasy football experts. Joe Dolanwho served as general manager of the defending champion Atlanta Hot Wings last season is returning this year Melissa Jacobs (Denver Mile Highs), Josh Hayes (New York Bodega Cats), Jeff Ratcliffe (Philadelphia powder kegs), Scott Engel (Seattle haze) and Jeff Mans (Vegas Pocket Kings). New managers for this season include Mark Blook aka “DR Lake(Boston Barflies) Stephanie Smalls (Chicago hogmollies), Lindsey Rhodes (Green Bay Winter Haze), grant brands (Los Angeles buddies), Lawrence Jackson Jr. (New Jersey Board Walkers) and Matt Harmon (Ohio GOATS).

To play, participants register and then pledge their allegiance to their favorite franchise (“Huddle”), giving them exclusive access to insights and advice from the team’s General Manager to use in their own gameplay. Beginning in Week 1 of the NFL season, contestants will select players based on eight tiers that they believe are best positioned to rank among the top players in a tier each week — referred to as “Legendary Lineups.” Points from Legendary Lineups are combined to create a weekly score, and participants choose new Legendary Lineups each subsequent week. Competitors can “double” their points if a player in their Legendary lineups is also part of their huddle.

“These unique competitive formats offer an experience where everyone – regardless of skill level – can participate in a truly innovative, exclusive and exciting community,” said Rob Borm, EVP of Gaming at HOFV. “The HOFL experience for fans will be unlike any other fantasy league in existence.”

Registration for the long HOFL season competition is open until September 8, 2022, but competitors can continue to play in the weekly format throughout the HOFL season. For more information on league rules and terms and conditions, visit www.theHOFL.com.

About Hall of Fantasy League

The Hall of Fantasy League (HOFL) is the only national fantasy football league with no barriers to entry that has transformed the way fantasy sports are played. Combining both the seasonal and weekly components of the fantasy, the HOFL allows participants to be part of a team community while empowering them to make their own decisions. The league includes 12 national franchises – all managed by professional fantasy football experts – and participants commit to one of them upon registration, giving them exclusive access to that team’s manager’s insights and advice, which they need to know about can use their own way of playing. Contestants have two objectives: 1) select the franchise they believe is best equipped to be crowned champion at the end of the season, based on the manager’s skills and experience or personal interests; and 2) select players based on eight tiers who they believe will perform best each week to try to earn the most points after 16 weeks.
