A new chapter begins

For 19 NFL draft seasons, KFFL.com has been at the forefront of fantasy football coverage. We have won multiple industry awards and received national recognition for our content and Hot off the Wire news service. Our staff has taken home scores of fantasy football championship trophies through the years. We have made winners out of thousands.

KFFL has been reinvented a number of times through the years, including through two ownership changes, but the newest transition will be the best of all. KFFL's staff is being merged into one powerhouse service under our parent company, USA TODAY Sports, to form a new fantasy experience for users. We are also launching our very own daily fantasy sports game, FantasyScore, which hopefully you will embrace as enthusiastically as you have supported KFFL.

We implore you to play FantasyScore and also rely on the new USA TODAY Fantasy Sports for your analysis. FantasyScore will continue to roll out new features and add sports throughout the coming weeks and months. We are confident you will be pleased with our undying commitment to providing the best user experience in the space. KFFL's passion and veteran know-how is not going away but rather being rebirthed into a fresh, first-class fantasy experience and joined with the expertise of the USA TODAY Fantasy Sports' team.

Our Hot off the Wire service will live on at USA TODAY Fantasy Sports, continuing to grow and improve. As a bonus, we are expanding our coverage to include NBA and NHL newsfeeds.

We have done all of this because of you.

Without our loyal readers, and new fans, KFFL would not have survived, much less thrived. It has been an honor to forge relationships and serve you throughout the nearly two decades of being in business. So many friendships formed, memorable conversations had, funny stories to tell ... all because of your unwavering support and belief in us. Do not think for a second any of it will be forgotten.

For many of us, KFFL has much more than our livelihoods. It really has been part of us -- a "job" that we cannot leave at the door -- and comes home with us through thick and thin. It would be insufficient to attempt to put all of the blood, sweat, tears, stress, happiness, long hours, emergency room trips (true story), gratifying feedback and lifelong memories into words.

We have been so fortunate to not only earn a living from giving advice about a game but be able to build relationships and share the passion that fuels each of our staff members with the reader. This same burning desire will live on at an exciting new home, and be assured everyone involved is more eager than ever to prove they deserve your valuable time and trust.

We can't wait to write the newest chapter in what has been a remarkable journey through this rewarding industry and hope you continue to be with us every step of the way for 19 more amazing years of making you a winner.

Thank you,

KFFL Staff
