You can draft a fantasy Puppy Bowl team

Puppy Bowl doesn't really have stats, but fantasy Puppy Bowl is a thing.

Let me promise you one thing: SB Nation's coverage of the Puppy Bowl will be better than, if not, surpass SB Nation's coverage of the Super Bowl. I promise you that.

Anyway, via Deadspin, we found out some spectacular news Entertainment Weekly brought about this year's Puppy Bowl:

Fantasy Puppy League: Later this month at AnimalPlanet.com/PuppyBowl, the network will launch a fantasy draft, where fans can see profiles of all 66 players and create their team of competitors before the big game. On game day, you can keep track of how your players perform via stats on the screen (so in theory you could place a wager on Cici the German Shepard mix rather than, say, the Patriots).

FANTASY PUPPY BOWL

So, the main problem with this is that the Puppy Bowl doesn't really have statistics, per se — it's a bunch of puppies on a tiny football field with a "referee" going TOUCHDOWN at various intervals and also sometimes calling penalties on dogs when they take poops places. But that's not going to stop us from participating in fantasy Puppy Bowl. I'll play against you. As somebody who won both of their fantasy football leagues and also happens to have a puppy, I think you don't have a chance against me.
