    Hi everyone. I play in two fantasy football leagues and I'm always researching various sources and trying to get the edge in my leagues. I wanted to share some of my favorite sources and ask if you had any that you like or that have helped you. Here are a few of my favorite places to get FF info:

    ESPN.com - they are quick, up to date, and have a lot of articles. I regularly use them for FF info. They also have good videos and you can access Mathew Berry's podcast which is pretty good if you haven't listened to it

    Sports Illustrated.com - Lots of info out of here too but they tend to contradict the other sites (and even themselves!) with more information than average. I have got some great tips and info from them but I've also made some big mistakes taking their advice. That being said, I still enjoy their articles especially Fantasy Soda.

    Rotoexperts.com - A really good site that in addition to the usual musings (weekly matchups, injury reports, etc.) also has good articles with lots of depth such as "quality game rankings" and "looks and touches" which I feel have helped me a lot.

    Yahoo.com - a good site with a lot of the same stuff that ESPN and SI have though I am not a huge fan of the layout of the webpage but that's a minor gripe. There are definitely some information gems every week here.

    Those are some of my favorites. What are yours?

    Paying attention and studying the weekly opponent of your lineup is going to be the best bet. When you rely on sites for their knowledge, all your really getting is their opinion on who they think is going to be the best fit. Me personally, I just study the type of D that is going up against my lineup. I'm a sports nut anyway so I read stats and stuff like that anyway.

    I do use NFL.COM to reaffirm my decision and even if they dont agree with me I don't let them sway my decision. Yahoo.com is always reliable for the oppisite information that you need. I don't mind ESPN that much and I use them just like I use NFL.COM, just to see if they agree with my opinion or not.

    I agree match-ups are the most important thing to watch (unless you have Peterson, Manning, Johnson, Gates, etc. sort of studs who you play regardless of matchup) and I use that more than anything. That being said, I just don't have to time to pour over the raw stats to see who's getting the most looks or things of that nature.

    The League I'm in has been using CBSSportsline for 8 years now and it has it's positives and negatives, but generally the news and updates are pretty good.

    Rotoworld is the best. CBS Sportsline is also pretty good. Yahoo is horrible.

    footballguys is a great fantasy football site, but you need a premium membership. It's well worth it though.
