2020 has been an unprecedented year for all of us in so many ways. We haven’t been able to live life the way we normally would, and that includes something as simple as being able to get together with your fantasy football league-mates.

It’s been an NFL season like no other and playing fantasy has been no different, whether it’s waiting to see if a game is going to be rescheduled or if you’ll have to shuffle up your roster at the very last minute.

The 3D experience can be viewed on both desktop and mobile.
