The wait is finally over.

No more training camps. No more preseason. No more practice games.

The NFL regular season is here and it kicks off Thursday night with a primetime matchup when the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This also means the fantasy football season begins. And here at Heavy, we love the fantasy football season.
