It’s fall, and you know what that means: it’s time for gridiron football. Even better, it means your fantasy football league is up and running.

For something that didn’t really exist on a few years ago, fantasy football has became a major source of entertainment for people all across the country (and even overseas). Player stats matter a lot, to the point where some professional football players have come out and told fans, “Sorry, but I don’t care about your fantasy football team.” Does Aaron Rodgers throw three touchdowns or four touchdowns? Does J.J. Watt go the entire game without recording a sack? The answers to such questions can mean the difference between winning the week and finishing at the bottom of the rankings.

Fantasy football is a great way to bond with your buddies. Fans put a ton of thought and creativity into their team names, which is how you end up with teams like “Great Dak Prescott” and “12th Man With a Game Plan.” Rivalries are amped up, and even after your home team’s game is over, your day of fantasy football isn’t. You can spend the rest of the day tracking stats and looking at points standings. The best way to do this is to hang out with a big group of friends, a big cooler full of beer, and a big plate of nachos or hot wings.

But what if that’s not all there is? What if there’s a way to up the stakes even higher for your fantasy football league?

Well, now there is. If you’re not content with simply winning bragging rights and maybe a small bit of pocket change, you can look into buying fantasy football trophies for the winners of your league. If you and your pals talk about it and agree that it’s something that would make the whole experience even cooler, then you can pool your money into buying a silver, gold, or even crystal trophy shaped like a football. Or you can get a trophy shaped like a man sitting in an armchair wearing a helmet, because whoever prevails will be declared the armchair champion. Depending on your budget, you may even want to get a trophy for the person who comes in dead last. Call ilt something like The First Pick in the Draft Award (because in professional football, the team that finishes with the worst record generally gets the top draft pick next year).

If trophies are nice but you’re looking for more, then you also have the option of purchasing fantasy football rings. No, they won’t be worth as much as the bling players like Tom Brady and Von Miller wear on their fingers, but they can still serve as a cool reminder of your fantasy football team’s dream season. If you really feel like splurging, add in a ring display case and stand, so you can share the story of your glory whenever you have guests over for dinner.

As fantasy football expands its reach, so do the options for people looking to celebrate their team’s season. Whether it’s a championship belt, trophy, or ring, you’ll have a great way of ensuring your friends and family members never forget your big victory.
