Which website has the best Fantasy Football?


Recommended Posts

I'd like to set up a league and was curious who you think has the best site (clarity, performance, etc.). This will be my first time, so suggestions are very appreciated! grin.gif

What are you looking for? For pay sites I've been in leagues on CBS and Fanball. I really like Fanball as far as paysites go. If your looking at setting up a keeper league one of these two will be the way to go.

If your looking for free, its hard to beat Yahoo. Its easy to get into a public league and offers live and autodrafts. Most leagues set up on FM have been set up on Yahoo. It's also easy to set up private leagues on as well. If you set up your league there and you want to keep it free you will be running a pretty bare bones operation. If you upgrade and pay the $$ you can get more out of it. I've commished my local auction league there the past 2 years and its worked for us.

I noticed this year that Fox Sports is offering free fantasy football as well. I've looked through their site and they offer quite a bit for a free service. I will most likely move my auction league over to the site as I have been impressed with what I've seen so far.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other questions I can answer.


A couple others I know of are NFL.com and smallworld.com(which is teamed up with THe Sporting NEws).

Does Fox or Yahoo have live scoring?

I may be wrong but isn't nfl.com on cbs' servers, or at least i think it used to be.

I believe you are right with NFL.com running off of CBS's server. I just checked it out and from what I gather, if you join a random public league you can do so for free and it does offer live scoring. If you want to set up a private league you must then sign up for the league manager service and I think it runs $129.00 a league.

Yahoo also offers live scoring, however, you must pay for it. You can purchase their StatTracker feature, individualy or if you can sign up for their league manager system as well for $124. If you do buy the StatTracker feature it cover all of your football teams for that user name. I think the Max if 4. So if you are in 4 Yahoo Leauges you will have live scoring in each of them.

This is why if you are going to a pay site, I believe Fanball offers the best options. They have good features and its half the price. Some of their keeper league features are really cool.

Fox is free all the way around and offers live scoring. You can set up and manage your league on it and all teams will have live scoring for free. They have a few other cool features as well, and are integrated with MSN's passport sign in. One way to check it out is to take their little tour they have, or just create a league and explore all the options and features you get and compare it to Yahoo. It is a lot more. You can always delete the league after you mess around a bit. Hope this helps.

I haven't seen Yahoo yet this year. As far as doing free public leagues its pretty nice. I still wish they offered live scoring for free through. That and the ability to split your league into divisions is leaning me towards putting my private auction league over on Fox Sports. What has Yahoo done this year? Thanks for the feedback. I've been really tempted to draft a team in a public Yahoo league, but I just can't pull the trigger yet to draft so early. The temptation is getting strong, and I'm sure I'll have a team by the end of the month.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?

      We were up this past weekend.  We got cold but did ok.  We caught around 40 walleye.  Most were 12-14" a handful of 14-16".  Good activity and a full fry pan, but no bigger fish.  Frazer and Smarts bays.  All Jig and minnow.  Mornings we found them at 24-26 FOW.  Evenings in 7-10 FOW.  Water temp was 50-52.

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.
