The parallels of managing a fantasy football team and working at a PR agency

School’s back in session and autumn is around the corner, which means only one thing ー football season! As someone who didn’t go to a university with Division I sports, the NFL has become my preferred fall pastime over college football. And with that came my gambling addiction with weekly picks, Super Bowl squares and, of course, fantasy football.

After switching to the agency side of PR last year, I quickly recognized several similarities in responsibly managing a fantasy football team and managing a client roster.  

Working in a public relations agency requires a lot of the same skills as a fantasy football team manager. Diversifying your knowledge, staying in the loop of industry trends and keeping your ideas fresh will help your clients reach their goals. Now go out there and get that first-place trophy you know you deserve!
