Frequently Asked Questions

What to look for in an NFL fantasy football site?
Pick a fantasy football site that will take on the difficult work of managing your league and its teams. A good site helps you set up and enforce the rules of your league, organize your draft, track rosters and available players, and run mock drafts. Look for a companion app that lets you supervise your league and team from your phone. (If all you want is a solid fantasy football site, check out Fleaflicker. It lacks a mobile app, but the popular fantasy football site is free, easy to use, and highly customizable.)
What about fantasy football advice and analysis?
The Internet is lousy with fantasy football analysts, offering frequently contradictory advice on how to draft, who to start, which waiver-wire players to grab or avoid, which rookies or sleepers might be worth picking up, and which stats matter. They all have opinions -- backed up with data-driven analysis. You can find mountains of useful guides and tips for free (such as from Rotoworld), but many sites charge for premium content. Find someone you trust, with a good track record.
What is weekly fantasy football?
Daily fantasy sports sites such as FanDuel, DraftKings, and CBS's SportsLine let you enter weekly football contests where you draft a team, compete against other players, maybe win some cash, and start over next week. (SportsLine and Download are both part of CBS.) While season-long fantasy football leagues are frequently run by friends and colleagues playing for bragging rights, daily and weekly fantasy players are in it for the money, competing for cash awards.
