Get your team page loaded, and tell your friends and family you're busy. The first Sunday of the fantasy football season kicks off today.
For some of you, your excitement level might have subsided once you realized another team owns Peyton Manning. But what's stopping your quarterback from matching the future Hall of Famer's seven-touchdown performance from Thursday night?
Sunday marks the NFL season's first full slate of games, which means a devout fantasy football player will spend every waking minute before kickoff searching for injury updates before checking the scores religiously once the games commence.
Let's join ESPN Fantasy Sports' Twitter handle in welcoming everyone to fantasy football season:
