How to Discover What Is the Best Fantasy Football Site
Fantasy football has boomed in popularity over the last decade and has developed into one of America’s – and the worlds – new favourite pastimes. The accessibility of the Internet, means that now, more than ever, a whole host of people from various demographics are signing up, drafting players, picking their weekly line ups, all while keeping one eye firmly fixed on the holy grail – a league championship win.
It doesn’t matter if it’s for financial prizes or simply for bragging rights, the allure of beating your buddies and taking out the coveted championship is strong. So strong, in fact, it has players from all walks of life searching high and low for any tips, advice or insight that may give them an edge on the competition.
One of the most common questions I’m asked (having been a fantasy football fanatic for years now,) is, ‘What is the best fantasy football site?’ Everyone is looking for a leg up on their competition so while I’m not going to recommend any specific site in particular (just yet… ) I thought I’d offer my expert insight into what I believe goes into making a fantasy football advice/information site the best in its class.
Real Time Updates – Any fantasy football information or news site worth its salt will update their news pages often – daily, if not hourly in most cases. You can spot a lazy site that’s just leaching off others when an injury report comes through so late that even your grandmother had heard about it.
Player Tracker Tools – If the only statistics a site offers you are the general numbers you can find anywhere online then you know that the site you’re on isn’t the best. If you’re going to beat your competition all year-long you’ll need to look at the players in ways that others couldn’t even dream of. You’ll need to know their strengths and weaknesses backwards.
Confident Trade Advice – I emphasise ‘confident’ because few sites will offer you advice firmly and tell you it’s reliable and to trust it. Most will hedge their bets and cover their butts, telling you what they think before making it very clear that it all comes down to your choice and that they’re not responsible if the trade doesn’t work out. I love confidence. I trust in people who trust in themselves. Find a site willing to back their advice and you’ve found yourself a gem!
In summary, the answer to the question, ‘What is the best fantasy football site?’ is this: the site that offers Draft Projections, Player Tracker Tools, Customised Line-Up Advice, Hot Waiver Wire Notifications and Unparalleled Injury Reports.
If you can find a site that has all that, bookmark it immediately and don’t tell another soul that you’ve found it as it will likely be the key to you taking home a championship this year!
I won’t mention the site I’ve used for years now as I’m not looking to hand over the secrets to my back-to-back league championships to competitors in my leagues. If you’re interested though, I have mentioned the site I visit once or twice before on my blog, so if you care to pop on by you may be able to figure out where I get all of my secrets from.
