    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.
