In some leagues with divisions, that may not be the case. In leagues without divisions, the teams with the best records will advance to the playoffs.\r\n\r\nLeagues that include divisions will usually have two or three divisions and operate like the NFL to determine which teams make the playoffs. The team with the best record in the division will advance, even if it doesn't have one of the best overall records league-wide.\r\n\r\nIn leagues with divisions, there will usually be one or two wildcard teams that will earn their positions from win/loss records among the rest of the non-division winners. Division winners always have a higher seed than wild card teams.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">The team with the best record will be the 1st seed in the playoffs. If your league has divisions, this team would have, coincidentally, won its division as well. Another divisional winner with the next best record will be the 2nd seed, and so on. If your league does not have divisions, the remaining seeds will be determined by overall win/loss records.</p>\r\nIn the event that two or more teams have identical win/loss records at the end of the fantasy football regular season, a tie-breaking system will determine their position. Most leagues use a standard tie-breaking system, and it goes as follows:\r\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points scored</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Head-to-head record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Division record</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Overall points against</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\">Coin flip</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ol>\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Fantasy football playoff formats</h2>\r\nIn a standard league, four teams will make the playoffs. In this case, the 1st seed will play the 4th seed, and the 2nd seed will play the 3rd seed. The winners of these two matchups will go on to the next week to play for the league championship; the losers will play for 3rd place.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437605.fantasy-football-4-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"4 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nIn some deeper leagues with 12 or more teams, 6 teams can make the playoffs, introducing the need for bye weeks. Bye weeks act similar to the NFL playoff bye weeks. The 1st and 2nd seeded teams will not have to play the 1st round; instead they automatically advance to the 2nd round and will play the winners of the 1st round.\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/437606.fantasy-football-6-team-bracket.jpg\" alt=\"6 team fantasy football playoff bracket\" />\r\n\r\nThe consolation playoffs work similar to the regular playoffs in seeding and bracket style.\r\n\r\nIn most leagues, the fantasy playoffs will begin week 13 or 14 of the NFL season. Standard leagues (four team playoffs) will use the following two weeks for the playoffs, and larger leagues with six teams may continue playing all the way through week 17.\r\n\r\nHowever, most leagues omit week 17 (and some even week 16) to prevent unfair play from NFL teams resting players for their real playoffs. Nobody wants to have their playoffs ruined by a resting player. For example, if Peyton Manning is on your team and has dominated the entire season, your fantasy football championship can be decided by having to scramble for a backup quarterback (QB) because Manning is resting during week 17.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">To best prepare for the fantasy football playoffs, be sure to read your league rules to understand how the playoffs are set up. Ask your commissioner if you have any questions such as the number of teams that can qualify, the playoff schedule, rules around wavier picks and trading, and so on.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Strategies for winning fantasy football playoffs</h2>\r\nIf you have made the playoffs, you will need to continue to monitor and adjust your lineup carefully if you want to win your league's championship. Weekly matchups, weather, and players on teams actually fighting for real playoff spots (or not) should be considered now more than ever.\r\n<p class=\"Tip\">Late in the season, teams that play in the north will be playing in the cold and perhaps snow so certain positions should be chosen with caution. Games played with precipitation and/or extreme cold favor the running game, whereas games played in good weather or domes generally favor passing and kicking. Some players thrive in bad weather, though, so an in-depth knowledge of your own players will prove to be an advantage either way.</p>\r\nYou'll also want to familiarize yourself with your league's playoff rules if you haven't already. Many league's final trade deadlines are during this week, and it could be your last chance to really strengthen up your roster for a championship run. You could also try picking up free-agent players you think your opponent may want, to prevent them from filling holes in their lineup that may arise come playoff time.\r\n\r\nFinally, just continue to do what got yourself in this position. Don't overthink your decisions and just continue with the players that got you here, barring injury or other player circumstance.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">If you need to make starting roster adjustments, hopefully you have made good moves throughout the season and have viable bench players to replace any player that is inactive or consistently infective. Roster depth cannot be underestimated come playoff time so you should be actively trying to improve your team the entire season.</p>","description":"When you are approaching the end of your <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/sports/fantasy-sports/fantasy-football/how-to-play-fantasy-football/\">fantasy football</a> season, if it has gone well, you may be in contention to make the playoffs.

If this sounds about right, keep reading. Keeper leagues offer fantasy football owners the opportunity to keep a certain amount of players from year to year.\r\n\r\nRetaining players helps maintain continuity with each team and offers a new interesting dynamic for <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/home-auto-hobbies/sports-recreation/fantasy-sports/fantasy-football/fantasy-football-for-dummies-cheat-sheet-207652\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">fantasy football</a>. Keeper leagues bring new and exciting gameplay and lets owners \"build\" a team over the course of many seasons. If you play your cards right, you can create a winning tradition and become a dynasty in your league for years to come.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Sometimes the season may not go as you planned, and keeper leagues open up a new dimension to strategy that traditional leagues simply do not offer. If it becomes clear that your team is not going to be competing for trophies, the best you could do in a traditional league is be a good sport and try to play the spoiler role, or win your consolation playoffs.</p>\r\nIn keeper leagues, you could instead focus on how to make your team better for future seasons. You could trade off one of your older, more productive veterans to teams competing for the playoffs, for one of their younger rising stars. There are many different ways to approach and be successful in a keeper league; keeping both the present and future in mind is always important.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >How keeper leagues work</h2>\r\nKeeper leagues work virtually the same as a normal fantasy league, except that each team gets to keep a certain number of players from year to year. Each fantasy owner will get to select which players they get to keep, and teams will keep the same number of players in most cases.\r\n\r\nIn the first season, the draft is performed as any other <a href=\"//coursofppt.com/article/home-auto-hobbies/sports-recreation/fantasy-sports/fantasy-football/important-fantasy-football-draft-reminders-149667\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener\">fantasy draft</a> would be. Depending on the league rules, typically five to ten players are kept from each team, and all other available players, plus any rookies, will be available for the next available draft. In the extreme, dynasty leagues offer a chance for fantasy owners to keep all of the players from last season, and only rookies are drafted.\r\n\r\nThere are many different ways to implement keeper leagues — and no single correct way. Discuss the idea with your fellow league members, and decide what works best for you.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >Common keeper league rules</h2>\r\nIn addition to keeping players from year to year, fantasy football keeper leagues can offer a wide array of other options and rules. Stipulations on keeping a player are commonly based on his tenure, total team tenure, draft position, or player salary, among other criteria in certain leagues.\r\n\r\nPlayer tenure is a concept that means a player can only be kept for a fixed number of seasons before he has to be released back into the free agent pool to be redrafted. For example, a league might have rules that simply state \"All teams can keep up to five players, but no player can be kept for more than four seasons in a row.\"\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Team tenure is a concept that increases cost the longer a certain player is on the team. Instead of being allowed a fixed number of players, a team is allowed a fixed number of seasons during which they could keep any combination of players. For example, if the fixed number was ten seasons, you could keep one player ten years in a row, or ten players for one year, or any combination in between.</p>\r\nDraft position is a way of associating cost with the player whom is being kept. Generally, if you keep a player who was drafted in the first round of last season, you will have to give up your first-round pick of this seasons draft.\r\n\r\nSome leagues even stipulate that certain top-tier rounds cannot be kept, or have a high cost associated with them in auction leagues, particularly for keeping a highly drafted player year after year.\r\n\r\nPlayer salary, for these purposes, has to do with a player's auction value, not his actual personal salary. The cost may continue to rise for every season an individual player is kept without being released back into free agency. If a player is purchased for $5, that cost might double every season he is kept, making it impractical to keep players for several years.\r\n\r\nIn addition to these concepts, leagues may want to implement certain guidelines and rules for trading players. At times, teams may have wildly different goals, some trying to win now, some trying to build for the future, and this all must be kept in mind when regulating trades.\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Some leagues may have some form of a salary cap, preventing teams from having too many protected, high-value players simultaneously. However, auction leagues might simply rise the cost associated with these players.</p>\r\nOther leagues might discourage giving up on the current season by having a draft lottery, making it not guaranteed you will get a high pick next season if your team performed badly in the previous season. Some leagues may be more forgiving and offer the lowest ranked competitors the highest draft picks the following season.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >Tips/strategy for managing a keeper team</h2>\r\nLeague rules can be among the most important factors in deciding strategy for your fantasy football keeper league. How many players start at each position, scoring modifications, and rules for keeping players are some of the more important factors in managing your keeper league season after season.\r\n<p class=\"Tip\">You should get to know your leagues rules and any scoring modifications, so you can make wise choices on which players to pick up and which to drop for the long haul of a keeper league.</p>\r\nYou'll also want to keep players from year to year based on their past performances and projected performances for future seasons. A young star running back could be the mainstay of your team for several years, but if you see production or opportunity drop, along with rising age, the value for keeping that particular player may not be there after many years.\r\n\r\nYou will have to weigh your options among your returning players and decide which ones are most important to you.\r\n\r\nTo help strengthen your team, you could always try initiating trades with other members in your league. There are many situations where a trade can help both teams in keeper leagues. One side might benefit in the current season, while the other may be in better shape for the future.\r\n\r\nSome fantasy owners might even intentionally pick up mostly younger players in the hopes that they culminate into a squad of fantasy superstars one day. Others may value experience and opportunity more, and attempt to be competitive every year. The choice is yours.","description":"So, you want to join a keeper league but you are not quite sure about how it works, the keeper league rules, or if it's for you?

Learning how to manage your fantasy football team is critical if you want to win your league.\r\n\r\nThe most important responsibility a fantasy coach has is to field the best possible team every week. The easiest way to stay in the game and in the championship picture is to make sure you have a complete and competitive lineup before the NFL games begin each week.\r\nHere are some common reasons why you need to change your starting lineup each week to stay competitive:\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Injuries: </b>Injuries happen in the NFL often; they're part of what makes fantasy football challenging. If your best player gets knocked out for the season, you'll be hard pressed to find a worthy replacement. However, with a little research and by counting on your draft depth, you can insert capable players into your lineup each week.</p>\r\n\r\n<div class=\"imageBlock\" style=\"width: 400px;\">\r\n\r\n<img src=\"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/350476.image0.jpg\" alt=\"[Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/majorosl 2008]\" width=\"400\" height=\"262\" />\r\n<div class=\"imageCredit\">Credit: ©iStockphoto.com/majorosl 2008</div>\r\n</div>\r\nFollow the injury report. The NFL teams designate injured players with a P (probably) or greater than 75 percent chance of playing, Q (questionable) or 50 percent chance of playing or D (doubtful or less than 25 percent.)\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Typically, a player designated “P” is started without worry and a player with a “D” designation will probably not play or see much action if played so they should be avoided. The “Q” players are the worrisome ones because they can go either way.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Watch for injury reports and pay special attention to pregame news so you don’t get stuck with a player who is listed as inactive at the last minute. If you have a player labeled “Q,” and he is playing in the late games or night games, you should be very careful.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Most of the time you won’t know if that player is going to play until after the early games have started so a lot of your bench may already be locked. In that case, look to play one of your bench players instead to avoid taking a zero.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Warning\">Some leagues put all players on automatic waivers come the start of games on Sunday (and any players who may have played in the Thursday night game on that day). Make sure you make any add/drops prior to that happening. Other than the Thursday players, a good rule of thumb is to have your lineup pretty well set on Saturday and leave Sunday for the last second injury substitutions.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Matchups:</b> Each fantasy team has a core of stud players that must start every week when healthy. But when making choices at your other lineup positions, you need to consider each NFL game and which of those matchups are more likely to give your fantasy players the best chance to produce.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Tip\">When setting your weekly lineup, there is one rule that should govern all: PLAY YOUR STUDS! Often times fantasy owners will out-think themselves by trying to play the matchup or avoid a player competing in a bad weather situation. You drafted a player with a high draft pick . . . play him that way.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">A team is not always filled with stud players. In that case, matchup, weather, and injury factors will need to be taken into consideration when choosing among some players. Do your research before the game and be aware that many things can change hours even minutes before a game can start.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Bye weeks:</b> During the season, each NFL team has a bye week, during which you need to bench the team's players. If you prepare for your draft correctly, these open dates won't come as a surprise, and your bench players will be ready to contribute.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Performance: </b>Athletes tend to play in streaks, either hot or cold. When making the tougher lineup decisions, you can check the stats for the last few games and see who's playing well and who needs to take a seat on your bench.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Be patient with your stud players. Every player will have a bad week or two. Try not to make any rash moves with your core group of players.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Remember\">Every league provider has different rules governing player movement. Always know your league rules and settings before you draft your team and play the game.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Know when your lineup locks. Many leagues lock the individual players once their games start. Some leagues lock the entire lineup on the start time of the first game. And in some instances that can be Thursday evening. Make sure your line up is set when it has to be.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nDuring the season, you can add or drop players to replace injured players or to upgrade at positions of need in one of three ways:\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>The free agency pool: </b>In Yahoo! default leagues, all undrafted fantasy players begin the season as free agents, which means they're available to be added to your roster at any time. Many free agent pickups will surprise you and become staples in your lineup.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>The waiver wire: </b>If another team drops a player, the player goes on waivers for a limited time before becoming a free agent. All coaches then have a set amount of time (usually two days) to decide whether to add him to their teams. This allows for fair acquisition players that are dropped based on the waiver priority system and not just who can get to the computer fastest.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">To add a player on waivers, you must drop a player from your roster. If you have the highest waiver priority — set in reverse order of your draft at the start of the season — you're awarded that player.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">After a claim is awarded, your waiver priority drops to the lowest number. If no owner puts a claim in for a player that is on waivers, and the waiver period has ended, that player will become a free agent, and any team can pick that player up at any time.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Trading with other owners: </b>If free agency doesn't help, it may be time to make a trade offer. Of course, making a good trade is easier said than done because you have to give up someone good in order to get someone good.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Trading is often difficult for novices as many will want to acquire a stud player but be very hesitant to give one of his or her core players. If you are determined to make a trade, you should strive for equity in your early negotiations. Identify where you are either lacking or have depth and try to utilize that to your advantage.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">For example, you have three quality starting RBs (running backs) but only one quality WR (wide receiver.) You could try to find a team in the opposite situation and trade a RB for a WR; both teams win. A more advanced scenario might be that you have three quality RBs and very little bench depth, and you have many players going on a bye soon.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">You can take that one quality RB and trade him for two or three lesser quality players to give you some help during the bye weeks. Of course, if you acquire three players for one, you would need to drop some players to meet the roster requirements.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>\r\nA good fantasy owner is making moves often. Maybe not every week, and maybe the starting lineup doesn’t change much, but active owners are always looking for better bench players, speculative pickups that could reap future rewards, or potential trades that could better position themselves for playoff push.\r\n<p class=\"Tip\">Remember: this is YOUR team, you make the calls. You can get advice from every expert or check every ranking, but make your own call.

Always remember this fantasy formula when drafting players.</li>\n</ul>\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Draft RBs early and often</strong>. Your exact strategy will vary based on your draft position, but taking two RBs in the first three rounds is the best approach.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Look to acquire an elite WR in the first three rounds</strong>. Depending on your league, you should be able to grab a reliable top-five WR to anchor your receiving core for the entire season.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Don’t take a kicker or defense too early</strong>. You can find plenty of depth at these positions at the end of the draft.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Take quarterbacks in the middle rounds</strong>. Good, productive quarterbacks aren’t hard to find in the middle rounds. The top-ten QBs will be drafted before the tenth round, though.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Don’t draft stars with the same NFL bye week</strong>. Most fantasy teams can’t avoid having some players on the same bye week, but having your best players on the same bye can cost you a win.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Stick to your draft plan</strong>. Trust your cheat sheets (player rankings). You worked hard to prepare them, and you don’t want to let the other coaches sway you into making a mistake.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Grab potential breakouts and sleepers late</strong>. You can pick up an average injury replacement during the season.

The early bird gets the breakout player, so to speak, so watch for emerging players on Sundays and be ready to go online and make your move.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Beware of one-week wonders</strong>. Each week, many lesser-known players have big games, but you must decide the odds of those performances happening again. Check online for information on each player before signing him, and decide for yourself.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Monitor intriguing players</strong>. Before each NFL game, review the free agent pool and choose a few players who you think could start to break out. If the players step up and you liked them already, look to add them to your roster. Many league providers have a “player watch” tool for this purpose.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\"><strong>Analyze recent trends and stats</strong>. During the season, sort the most-recent player stats from the last month or last week. In November, you need hot players, not guys who had big games in September and have since gone cold.</p>\n</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"What to remember when making trades in fantasy football","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<ul>\n<li><strong>Buy low, sell high (and vice versa).</strong> Trading is all about making your team better without making it worse (in other words, improving one area without hurting another). In order to do this, look to trade for struggling stars who you think will rebound. Trade away your average players who have great stats so far due to soft schedules or injuries.</li>\n<li><strong>Trade from strength.</strong> If you have solid depth at a certain position, you can trade your depth to improve a weaker position on your team. Having a strong bench is a nice luxury, but only your starting lineup can win you games.</li>\n<li><strong>Make two-for-one offers.</strong> Look to upgrade a position by trading two decent players for one true star. If you can identify a trading partner who has depth issues or a losing record, you can make the deal work.</li>\n<li><strong>Know the NFL schedule. </strong>Most fantasy coaches are so focused on the next game that they don’t plan ahead to avoid bye-week conflicts and poor matchups. By knowing the schedule and the upcoming matchups, you can make trades to avoid problems that could harm your team’s chances, and you can pinpoint teams that are headed for trouble (prime trading candidates if you remind them about their situations).</li>\n<li><strong>Be proactive, open-minded, and diplomatic.</strong> A big key to successful trading is your attitude. The other owners don’t want to be shown up or make trades with a jerk. Look to make offers that help both teams, and consider all offers you receive, no matter how wacky they may sound!</li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"Strategies to remember for daily success in fantasy football","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p><strong>Know the rules. </strong>This one seems obvious, but each contest or tournament will have slightly different rules and point systems. In order to successfully draft a lineup that can win you prize money, being familiar with the specific structure of the contest is imperative. Some key elements to be aware of are how the prize payout is distributed, whether the game is guaranteed to run even without filling up, and any specific drafting requirements that are unique to the contest.</p>\n<p><strong>Play it safe in cash games. </strong>In Head to Head (H2H) play and 50/50s, you don’t need to get first place to win money. You only need to beat 50 percent of your competitors. That’s why playing conservatively and drafting sure things is a better bet than taking big risks. No need to shoot for the moon when earning even 0.1 more points than your opponent can be enough.</p>\n<p><strong>Multiple-entries up your odds in tournament play.</strong> To increase your odds at winning GPP tournaments, where you are in competition with thousands of other players for a shared prize pool, a key strategy is to enter the same contest with multiple lineups, up to the maximum allowed. Just like winning the lottery, the more tickets you buy, the more likely one will hit.</p>\n<p><strong>Draft for one game only. </strong>In standard fantasy football, you draft for how a player will play over the course of the season. In Daily Fantasy, the only thing that matters is what a player will do in their next game. Don’t draft stars with lingering injuries, and don’t draft players who were great early in the season but have cooled off. You want to go for the players most likely to deliver this week, and this week only.</p>\n<p><strong>Projected points/salary cap cost=value.</strong> Value is the number one factor for successful Daily Fantasy drafts. Because every contestant has the same salary cap max, you have to draft players who will earn you the most points, while keeping costs down to stay under the cap. A successful coach will pick the best value players, who have the most projected points, for the lowest cost.</p>\n<p><strong>Play the long game. </strong>Daily Fantasy is gambling, and like playing in the casino, you aren’t going to win every hand you play. Sometimes you might lose every contest you enter for the week or longer. That’s why the results of any single contest or tournament shouldn’t matter. You are playing the odds that you can win more contests over the course of the season than you lose.</p>\n<p><strong>Go against the grain. </strong>There are certain sure-bet players that every contestant will want on their team, so if you draft them for your lineup, you’ll be doing nothing to make your lineup stand above the crowd. It can be more valuable to play a bit contrarian and seek out unconventional sleeper picks to fill out your roster. That way, if one or two of them hit, you’ll set yourself up to leapfrog the competition.</p>\n<p><strong>Play within your means.</strong> Playing Daily Fantasy requires gambling with your own money. If you lose, you’re out the cost of your entry fee with nothing to show for it. That’s why managing your bankroll is imperative to not getting yourself in a financial hole. Smart players don’t gamble more than 10 to 20 percent of their total bankroll in any single week, so if they fail terribly, they don’t drastically drain their funds and have enough to try to make it back the next week.</p>\n"},{"title":"Your fantasy football league calendar","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Keep track of the important dates in your league.</p>\n<ul>\n<li><strong>League Name:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Draft Day:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Draft Time:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>League Provider:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Weekly Waiver Deadline:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Trade Deadline:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Regular Season Ends:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Playoff Weeks:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Playoff Slots:</strong></li>\n<li><strong>Fantasy Championship:</strong></li>\n</ul>\n"},{"title":"My fantasy football league scoring system","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>When evaluating talent, selecting your draft picks, or making any kind of player move, you have to remember the scoring categories of your league.

This rectangle is 12 feet wide — 16 feet at the men's pro level. Its length, as measured from the basket to the <em>free throw line</em>, is 15 feet at all levels. An offensive player may not stand inside the lane for more than three seconds unless he or one of his teammates is shooting the ball. After a shot is taken, the count starts over again. A defensive player may remain inside the lane for as long as he desires.\r\n\r\nA player fouled by another player sometimes receives <em>free throws</em>, also known as <em>foul shots</em>. She takes these shots (they aren't really \"throws\") from the free throw line at the end of the lane — 15 feet from the basket. The shots are \"free\" because a defender does not guard the shooter while she's shooting. When a player shoots a free throw, her feet may not cross the free throw line until the ball hits the rim, or else the shot is nullified.\r\n\r\nThe remaining players line up alongside the free throw lane (or behind the shooter) and cannot interfere with the shot. They line up in order, on either side of the lane, of defense-offense-defense-offense. (Up to four players may stand on one side of the lane.) If a player opts not to take a spot (say, for example, the second defensive spot), then a player from the opposing team is permitted to step into that spot. The fans behind the basket usually scream, jump up and down, and wave their hands to try to distract an opposing team's shooter during free throws.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >The three-point arc</h2>\r\nThe <em>three-point arc</em> is the other important marked feature of the court. The arc extends around the basket in a near semicircle, and its distance from the basket differs according to the level of play. Even at one level, the distance can change as rules committees grapple with the best distance for the good of the sport. The NBA has changed the three-point distance on two different occasions since first adopting the <em>trey</em>, as the three-point shot is called, in the 1979-1980 season. The three-point distance was moved back to its original 23' 9\" for the 1997-1998 season. The college distance is 19' 9\", while the international distance is 20' 6\".\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Any shot made from beyond this arc — even a desperation half-court shot at the buzzer — is worth three points. A three-point shooter must have both feet behind the arc as he launches this shot, but either foot is allowed to land on the other side of the arc.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >The backcourt and frontcourt</h2>\r\nThinking of the entire court as two half-courts, divide it into frontcourt and backcourt. The <em>frontcourt</em> is the half of the court where the offense's basket is located. The <em>backcourt</em> is the other half. Thus one team's backcourt is the other team's frontcourt.","description":"A basketball court has symmetry; one half of the court is a mirror image of the other.

The college distance is 19' 9\", while the international distance is 20' 6\".\r\n<p class=\"Remember\">Any shot made from beyond this arc — even a desperation half-court shot at the buzzer — is worth three points. A three-point shooter must have both feet behind the arc as he launches this shot, but either foot is allowed to land on the other side of the arc.</p>\r\n\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >The backcourt and frontcourt</h2>\r\nThinking of the entire court as two half-courts, divide it into frontcourt and backcourt. The <em>frontcourt</em> is the half of the court where the offense's basket is located. The <em>backcourt</em> is the other half. Thus one team's backcourt is the other team's frontcourt.","blurb":"","authors":[],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":34013,"title":"Fantasy
