When playing team-based combat games, gamers use FF to stand for "focus fire." This acronym is usually paired with an enemy's name, as a request that you concentrate your attacks on that enemy.
FF is a fairly common acronym, and you might encounter it in in-game chat while playing FPSes, MOBAs, MMORPGs, and RTSes. For example, if a League of Legends (LoL) player wants you to focus your attacks on an opposing Ashe, they may send "FF Ashe" in chat.

Gamers use FF as a quick way to refer to the Final Fantasy series. Most often, you'll see this acronym paired with a Roman numeral, such as FFVII, FFX, or FFXVI, to denote that a player is talking about a specific game in this long-lived fantasy franchise.
Primarily, Final Fantasy consists of a series of RPGs in which players set out on a magical adventure. Developer Square released the first FF for the NES in 1987. The game has received nearly too many sequels and spin-offs to count, including the popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV).
Most likely, however, if you've heard of Final Fantasy, you're familiar with FFVII. In this game, originally released for the PlayStation in 1997, players play as Cloud Strife, a mercenary who joins a group of eco-terrorists to save his planet from the evil Sephiroth. Notably, FFVII was the first FF game to feature 3D graphics, as well as science fiction elements.

WoW and DnD players use FF as an abbreviation for the Faerie Fire ability. While each game's version of FF functions slightly differently, both are used primarily to reveal enemies, so allies can find and attack them.
In Classic WoW, Feral and Guardian druids use Faerie Fire to prevent a target from using stealth and invisibility (and potentially deal some damage). In DnD, bards and druids use Faerie Fire to reveal hidden objects and enemies, and to give allies advantage on attack rolls against those objects and enemies.

FF means fantasy football. It is an acronym for the popular online contest between fans of American Football (NFL).
Fantasy football is made up of participants who act as team owners. They draft players to compete and earn points based on their on-field performance. Each statistic, such as receptions, rushing yards, receiving yards, touchdowns, interceptions, and field goals, receives a certain amount of points depending on the league settings. The team with the most amount of points at the end of the NFL week wins the head-to-head matchup against another team in the league. There are different variations to how FF is played, such as scoring style and how many points different on-the-field performances receive.
