Managing a fantasy football team requires a lot of commitment, dedication and research. With the first week of NFL action about to kick off, there are a variety of ways Evernote can help you hoist a championship trophy in your league.

See how you can use Evernote to accomplish better results each week, without spending more time than you have to.

Use Reminders to manage your roster

The biggest challenge of fantasy football is managing your team roster.

Fantasy football is a fickle game that requires juggling work and life pursuits with deciding which players to start on a weekly basis. Save a note with your updated roster and set a Reminder for the next week’s earliest game so you remember to finalize your team. While most teams play on Sunday, a handful of games are on Thursday and Monday. Create an ‘injury status’ note with the players who are in limbo to play each week. Monitor their health by pinning it to the top of your note list for quick reference as game time approaches.

Use Evernote to manage trades

Just like in real life, sports success is dictated by trades. Pursuing trades with other managers can impact your season just as much as the draft process. Research players online throughout the season and clip relevant content into Evernote using the Evernote Web Clipper. Don’t forget your league trade deadline by setting a Reminder early in the season.

Evernote for league dues

You have to pay to play. Playing fantasy sports involves a lot of administrative work and financial responsibility. Use Evernote to create checklists that track who’s paid their dues and who needs to be paid out at the end of the season.

Share notes with your league

While fantasy football is all about head-to-head action, you still have to keep up communication with the league. Share notes with players, weekly recaps and league news seamlessly to the league.

Archive fantasy results in Evernote for future reference

Archive past fantasy sports results in Evernote to look back at previous seasons and analyze what trade proposals were made, why certain trades went through or were declined, and which players you want to stay away from next season.

    I have been actively using Evernote in all aspects of my day-to-day life (really working hard on going paperless), and these are some great ideas. I am in three fantasy football leagues, and manage one of the leagues. I will have to put a few of these suggestions into place.

    I forgot to add that I used Evernote to manage my drafts in all three leagues. I kept all of my research on players, keepers that were unavailable, and sleepers for late rounds. I did some mock drafts, and used Clearly to highlight my draft results to remind me of potential picks, depending on my draft position. All around, Evernote is a great tool!

    How can you pin a note to the top of your note list? Is this a mac-only feature?
