Fantasy Football Tips

I know there are some fantasy football nuts out there besides myself. My question to the forum is: what websites do you use that you find to be the most helpful in your research, especially in who to start/bench each week and injury updates?

I'm talking about free sites - not those millions of websites where you have to pay $$ every month or for the season just to access their sites.

I know there are some gems out there - so please share them with us.

Right now, I use three sites - but know that there are more out there:

New Blogger

Player Updates

Bench/Start

Yahoo! is nice too, since they pool all the updates from fanball, STATS Inc, and KFFL, which are some of the top fantasy update sites. That's one of the things I really like about doing our leagues with Yahoo!.

The sites you listed are as good as any I have found. Each year I play the more and more I rely mainly on my own tools mainly with just the internet sites augmenting them. What kind of tools do you use to draft? Do you just buy a magazine and use their list or do you put together you own list with some type of analytical work involved? By the way I'd love to get a good discussion going on how everyone drafts and makes decisions. I bet we get 100 different ways and it is always good to hear what others are doing.

I always make my own list, but I do buy a magazine more for depth charts, schedules, etc for the season. Helps if you're in a crunch to get that information quickly.

I buy one mag, Fantasy Football Index. I read the thing cover to cover and I receive the daily fanball updates to stay on top of injuries, position battles, etc. That's about the extent of my draft prep, I don't really make a list anymore, but in my head I know what I like to do and I pretty much go from the gut. That can be good and bad.

These are the pillars of my draft theory:

Pillar 1: Draft RB's early - no shit!
Pillar 2: I always draft at least one Redskin and never a Cowboy - I don't care if Ladanian gets traded to Dallas and I have the first pick. (by the way, this habit of drafting redskins has hurt me in the past few years).
Pillar 3: Draft a sleeper in Round 5 or 6.
Pillar 4: Pick one rookie - only one!
Pillar 5: Never draft a WR if he's the only draftable WR on his team.
Pillar 6: Never draft a player with a girl's name (exception - Shannon Sharpe).

Fantasy Football Index is absolutely the mag to go with. No even a close race. I have used it the last three years and I always finish top three. Sorta makes me the Eagles of fantasy footbal since I have never won a Superbowl in any of my leagues. I have finished 1st in three leagues and lost in the playofffs each time.

I keep my heart out of FF. I'll take 'Skins as long as they are worthy, and I won't shy away from taking Cowboys.

One year I took a bunch of Skins and it actually paid off. It was in '99 and I drafted BJ, Davis and Westbrook all as backups. I also took E. James as a rookie and with him and Davis I cruised to the league title. BJ and Westbrook also worked out very well too.

I keep my heart out when it comes to picking Redskins. But I can never bring myself to start a player if his team is going up against the Redskins that week-unless my season is on the line.

I'm usually against picking many players from the same team, but it paid off for me a couple of years ago when, in an autodraft, I got Holmes, T. Green and Gonzo

I know that keeping your "heart out of it" is always good advice for building a successful fantasy team - but I feel stronger about the Skins than I do about fantasy football. I'd rather see the Skins win than my fantasy team. So I do allow a little bias to float in. But if the Skins have a big year - and they will eventually - then it'll be a double-whammy.

I also don't like to start players against the Skins - it's not fun to cheer for a player to do well against us!

I try to not start guys against the Skins too, but sometimes you've gotta do it, especially if you're talking about one of your big time stars.
