Just wondering what others have been using for websites for all aspects of Fantasy Football.  I've only used Yahoo (seems pretty good) and FoxSports (hated it) when playing in a league.  There seems to be tons of websites out there for draft info and sit 'em/play 'em advice.  What is everyone else using?

I use RotoWire.com for much of my info. I can admit that the interface feels a little dated and cluttered, but once you get used to it, the info is great and there's enough of it. Is it a paysite though, but the monthly rates aren't bad at all.

Now for the full disclosure... I work part time for that website, so take my opinion FWIW.

As unpopular as it is with the "real sports fans," I use ESPN for just about anything fantasy-related, and I find it so much easier than other sites. I've been in a Yahoo league for football and baseball, and often found myself going over to ESPN to get info. They are fairly up-to-date with injury info, etc. The weekly advice they give on each player is pretty good.

Just stay away from the the advice of guys like Matthew Berry (Talented Mr. Roto)...he's awful.

Will you have this left guard to be the 224th pick?

I decline to divulge my sources as it has served me well this way many years.

(desperately tries to come up with a crappy site to "recommend")

Really, almost all sites are pretty much the "same" now a days. It's all prognostication, injury reports, and "gut feelings" of the individual site writers. Heck, we could do probably do a Lambeau Leam Fantasy Report just on Packers stuff for those on the web that would want that info.

Fantasy Football Index has been my magazine of choice for over a decade.

Rotoworld.com is the best site for all sports news I think, especially fantasy football.

I like to look at 'weekly rankings'  every week if nothing else, just to solidify hunches or tough choices for lineups.  So any site that has a rankings list, I try to look at.  Some of those are:  pigskinaddiction.com, sportsillustrated.com, fftoolbox.com, profootballweekly.com....etc.

Here's a site that will give you links to info throughout the week:  http://www.fantasysportsc...ball/dailyplannerpre.asp

For playing I've always been in Yahoo leagues. So I have to keep using them to keep my fantasy profile up. (On baseball alone I have a score of 80)

However, last year I joined some espn leagues. espn's fantasy setup is awesome, although their android app is terrible.

Yeah, what the heck is up with the hourly updates?  I started off a bit rough this year and lost my first three games.  I finally just deleted the app because I was sick of them telling me every single hour how much I'm losing by.  Maybe it's okay for people that can't watch the games and want the updates, but they should just make it something you can check when you want to, rather than the updates.  I'm sure you can change the settings, but I wasn't into it enough to bother so I just deleted it.

And yeah, their fantasy setup overall is just light years ahead of others, and they seem to pay close attention to what their consumers are looking for.  Every year the updates include all kinds of ways to customize the league.

I've never had a league on ESPN, but I have seen yahoo, and I'm going to go out on a limb and say ESPN is not as good as myfantasyleague.com.  FYI for next year.
