Fantasy football sources/credibility
 
I'm curious who you guys trust most for fantasy football. Who do you use for rankings etc. Why do you trust them? Who do you use for your league (yahoo,espn,etc).

I think these guys have the best handle on it. John Hansen and Adam Caplan run it and they have Greg Cosell breaking down video. I think these guys have the most informed opinions.

I started listening to their radio show on Sirius XM last season and I think that's why I won my league. I probably used 3 or 4 services last year, but I've decided that this is going to be the one and only service I use this year.

If you decide to go with a pay service, then this is absolutely the way to go.

If you compare , they don't vary to much in their ratings with the first 20 to 30 players . The trick is to project a guy you get in the 6th to play like a 2nd .

+1 on this. I didn't listen to their show much last year, but two and three years ago I did. They're pretty good with their flyer picks. If you're in a non-standard scoring league (which I am), then you really need to pay attention to why they say someone is a good pickup or a good drop/trade, because their reasoning may not apply to whatever league you're using them for.

I just read what Brad Evans says on Yahoo, and do the opposite.

footballguys has a shark tank forum...lots of good stuff from multiple members. Nobody has the market cornered on advice and you need as much luck as you do strategy to win a league.

I use http://www.ffmastermind.com/ and just signed up for Fantasy Guru as well.

Also, if you have an iPad, there's an awesome FF app by nfl.com. I can pretty much use it during my draft along a pdf from ffmastermind all on my ipad instead of dragging my laptop to the draft.
