It’s a Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday between August and December, and that can only mean one thing: tonight is fantasy football night! This is the time of year to get your squad together, plan your draft, and wipe the floor with your friends. Before we can get to the trades, injuries, insults, and punishments for the league’s loser, we’ve gotta get your team primed and drafted, and the best way to do that—you guessed it—is on your TCL Roku TV. Here are some of the best ways to get ready for your draft day heroics from the comfort of your own couch.


One of the best resources out there comes straight from our old friend YouTube. Between catching up on highlights and clips from preseason games, and checking out ESPN and YouTuber videos, everyone’s favorite video platform has an endless supply of fantasy advice and knowledge. With YouTube, you’ll be able to catch up on the latest PPR rankings, and listen to professionals talk about the best way to draft so that you can bury your friends in last place all year long.


The leading sports network has covered fantasy football for years now. With the help of Matthew Berry, Field Yates, and Stephania Bell, you can become a draft-day genius and know exactly when to pick up that stud wide receiver or how long to wait before taking a tight end. And, if you’re playing TCL's 4K Football Challenge each week (you are, right?), Yates will be providing extra guidance to help you choose the right team.


Whether you’re getting some cleaning done or catching up on work, podcasts are some of the best resources you’ve got at your disposal this season. Click on your iHeartRadio app and pull up the Fantasy Footballers, Fantasy Football Counselor, Fantasy Focus Football, or the Fantasy Throwdown Podcast and soak up all that advice from real life fantasy experts. They’ll tell you when to take the plunge on that sleeper you’ve been eyeing, or just listen to their top running back rankings to really put the final touches on your roster.

The League

Okay, this last one isn’t actually a TCL Roku TV channel, but what better way to prepare for your draft than to watch the best TV show about fantasy football. While it’s been taken off Netflix, the show is available for purchase through iTunes and Google Play.

Now that you’re all prepared to kick some butt this season, go ahead and dominate your fantasy football season. Craft the perfect punishment for last year’s loser, get the chips and beer ready, and now that you’ve gotten all the advice you need from your TV, it’s time for the best season of the year: fantasy season. And remember, be sure to enter the 4K Football Challenge each week for a chance to win a 4K HDR TCL Roku TV and qualify to win a trip to the Big Game with every entry!
