Starting your Journey as a Fantasy Sports Journalist
Fantasy Football is a constantly evolving and growing market across the world, with hundreds of millions of people across the globe engaging in Fantasy sports through different mediums. Regardless of the game you play, whether for pleasure or financial gain, there is something for everyone. Some eagle-eyed fanatics like to cross to the other side and become involved in reporting in Fantasy sports journalism. We here at The Hype Train have provided what we believe are the essentials to starting your life as a reporter or analyst of the games you love to play. All aboard.
What we’re going to do to make this a simple read for everyone is split this article into different sections, starting with the basics and then into some more detailed practices that will happen when you’ve established your name, identity, and what you want to do.
We thought that this article would provide good insight into the practices of journalism that can make you stick out from the crowd, and get your name around town. Fantasy sports reporting when done right offers everything traditional football reporting does, but adds a new personal element of insight that can sway decisions when placing a bet, or picking a captain in your Fantasy Premier League team.
This article is also about football, as in soccer, just to clear up any potential confusion with American Football.
We've been an affiliates with the Fantasy Football Hub since early September and have been doing weekly Power Rankings updates for the site, with unique graphics and articles related to the FPL's hottest properties.
