    Fantasy Football Question

    Just wondering what everyone's preferences were for Fantasy Football providers. I've always used Yahoo in the past and have liked it a good deal. This year we are thinking of possibly making a switch to ESPN which has free live scoring. I really liked Yahoo's stattracker even though it was $10. Just wondering if anybody would share their experience using these systems or any others.

    TIA

    Stay with ESPN, It has lots of features that is free. You can make divisions, also more scoring ways. As in head coaches, punting avg. ect. So much better. I was with YAhoo since 2000 and I switched this year. Why pay when its free

    From my experience ESPN's gotta be about the worst Fantasy Football provider (at least the free one). Last year we decided to do both Yahoo and ESPN. Basically, after one week, we all thought it sucked so much we all dropped the league and only did Yahoo.

    How is the Live scoring on ESPN? I paid 10 bucks last season for Yahoo's Stattracker and really liked it. It's really slick. Is ESPN's Live scoring as detailed as Yahoo's.

    Re: Fantasy Football Question

    Last year we did it through NFL.com. I liked it really well, and the scoring updated quickly. Plus there was a lot of game information on the site that was easy to look up while you are setting your roster.

    Re: Fantasy Football Question

    I've used Sporting News (Really bad set-up) and Yahoo! (Pretty solid, as you know), and last season did one on ESPN for the heck of it. I enjoyed the ESPN one, but the Yahoo! one is much, much easier to navigate and easier to set up and control for the whole season. I would highly recommend sticking with Yahoo!

    We've been using Yahoo for the past few years. I don't really have any problems with it to speak of. And I agree, Stat Tracker is worth the cash.

    Thats funny you said that because NFL.com is exactly the same as CBS sports (based on the free versions that is).

    I did both one year and noticed right away that they were the same and got to do CBS for free the whole year because I called in and complained.
