There’s good news for fantasy football fans everywhere: You’ll be able to skip the NFL games next season. Or stop focusing on the scroll at the bottom the screen, at the very least.

DirecTV will offer a fantasy football channel (called Fantasy Zone) as part of its NFL Sunday Ticket package, the network said in a news release. Like the Red Zone channel, the fantasy channel will broadcast on Sunday afternoon while games are being played.

Kay Adams of NBC Sports and Rotoworld.com will be the host and former Giants/Eagles/Saints/Bengals linebacker Dhani Jones will be an anaylst.

According to USA Today, there will be celebrity guest hosts, a live studio audience and an on-set kitchen where a chef offer recipes for viewers.
