Fantasy football season is finally here again, and those who play are already beginning to study positional rankings and craft their draft strategies.

But, a fantasy football draft is about more than putting together a winning roster. You’ve also got to have a league draft party that sets the tone for the entire season.

If everyone comes together in the beginning, it will make the trash talk, waiver wire pickups and trade situation all the better as the season grinds on. With that in mind, here are 15 incredible ideas for your draft party that will get your league’s season off and running on the right foot!
