Fantasy Fitbit merges the world of fantasy football with a dedication to a healthy and active lifestyle. Fantasy Fitbit will follow the Salary Cap League format, where each player acts as the coach of his or her fantasy team. Whereas other leagues provide a $50 – $100 million salary cap, Fantasy Fitbit allows you to earn your salary through steps. The more steps you earn, the better players you can afford. Coaches select their lineup of fantasy players every week , but each players demands a certain amount of physical activity. The personal health of the coach will affect the strength of the team. If the step counts are not achieved, another coach can challenge the team for a player.
