One Season: The New Fantasy Stock Market

Zachary WishnovContributor IOctober 17, 2008

People know about Fantasy Football. It's a way to own a player and hope that they do well. You compete against others in your league to have the best team and own bragging rights. There's a new fantasy league in town. It's called One Season and it will be even more popular than the Fantasy Football everyone currently plays.

It is, in essence, a sport's stock market. You have the ability to buy virtual stocks of players such as Tom Brady, Tony Romo, Marion Barber, Adrian Peterson, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Manny Ramirez, and other football, basketball, baseball, and hockey players.

It works exactly like the stock market but it's aimed towards the average sports watcher. If you feel like a player will do incredible, you can buy stocks of him for a certain price. If upon doing well and people buy more stocks of that particular player, the law of supply and demand will drive up the prices, thus making you money when you sell at a higher price than you originally paid.

I, myself, have always wanted to get into the stock market but a couple of things have caused me to reconsider. The fact that the stock market has plummeted doesn't help me into buying stocks and the fact that I know nothing about what im buying also has me stock less.

This new website and intriguing idea has only been around for a few short weeks. If you are interested in a new fantasy sports idea and a way to possibly make money, go for it. I am, personally, ecstatic at an idea of owning stocks of my favorite players and being able to make money off of them. is where the stock market and sports come together. Become a part of it or be left behind.
