LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30, 2012 – Successfully launched last month, NextGen Fantasy Football Evolution is the only national fantasy football competition that has full drafting, league and tournament play. Fantasy Football Evolution’s unique three stage format challenges players' skills and strategies with a fair and open competition in order to determine the best fantasy football player in the nation.
Players can purchase a team for $15 for seventeen (17) weeks of competitive play. The winner of Fantasy Football Evolution will take home a $25,000 prize, along with indisputable bragging rights and well-deserved fantasy glory.
Known for his energy, confidence and loyal fan base, Stevie Johnson has responded to fan requests for the opportunity to play against him in fantasy football. Dubbed The Stevie Johnson FFE Fan Challenge, Stevie fans can register to compete against Stevie on Fantasy Football Evolution’s homepage by clicking the Stevie Johnson’s FFE Fan Challenge Sign Up button. Stevie will draft his team and will be able to track his progress against the progress of his fans’ teams throughout the season on FFE’s Friendly Fire page.
“Fantasy Football has become a game within the game, and I am excited to connect my loyal fans and friends with a chance to play me in fantasy football through FFE. For only $15 you can’t beat the chance to play 17 weeks of fantasy football to win several prizes, including a $25,000 grand prize. Plus, I’m personally giving away exclusive prizes to those entered in my Friendly Fire challenge,” Johnson comments.
