    Live draft for sure and I'm down as long as it's ESPN and right before the season starts so we don't get guys drafting ppl who get injured in training camp.

    I've never done fantasy football before but have been wanting to start this year. I would love to do a android forums league.

    One suggestion would be some type of fantasy football app for our phones so we can control everything from there.

    But count me in definitely!!

    Yahoo is in process of developing one for android phones... Hopefully its out before this season starts.


    I have never done fantasy at ESPN.com, always been Yahoo. Going to throw up a poll at the top. Please post pros and cons of each, why you prefer one over the other so when season nears we will just go with the majority vote.

    I've never done ESPN fantasy football, always did it through Yahoo. Although my preference is Yahoo is doesn't matter to me, whatever gets us more participants (but not too many teams to the point where my second runningback is Shaun Alexander lol)

    I haven't done the Yahoo one since 2005. ESPN's setup is more my cup-of-tea. ESPN allows flex spots like RB/WR (you can have either position play in that slot), etc..

    It didn't used to have it. The old Yahoo Fantasy Sports were rather terrible which was why I switched to ESPN. Hmm, well I suppose if we could get enough people to play I'll be interested but I still prefer ESPN over Yahoo lol.

    Even if your losing please play all year. Its annoying when people just stop playing and some teams end up with easy wins.

    If you aren't going to make the playoffs

    a) The consolation bracket is still fun to win

    b) You can still knock people out of playoff contention for bragging rights

    Always my favorite thing to do in Fantasy Football. I've won Fantasy Baseball every year since I've started participating in leagues (2004-present).
