Coming Down The Home Stretch In Fantasy Football

Cbs_commissioner_league_medium

The NFL is entering week 13 and the playoff race still fairly murky. Five of the eight divisions have two teams tied for first place. Furthermore, every division has at least two teams in realistic contention for a division title. Given how close the division races are, that makes the wildcard picture even murkier and likely to come down to the final week of the season. Even our beloved 49ers are somehow in the playoff race, sitting one game back of the division-leading Rams and Seahawks.

In fantasy football however, the time for positioning is almost up. Virtually any league that allows for six or more playoff teams is entering their final week of the regular season (we won't discuss those crazy folks who use Week 17 for their championship game). I myself am in three leagues, two of which have a six-team playoff and the other of which has a four-team playoff. The four team league has two more weeks of regular season action given the shortened playoff.

I don't want to be "that guy" talking about his fantasy football leagues because that guy can sometimes be annoying. Of course, I often ended up talking about them anyways, but that's life I suppose. Rather, I was curious what sites people use to play fantasy football and how they like them?

CBSSports.com is the "official" fantasy site for SB Nation, but I have to agree with John Morgan over at Field Gulls that the setup of their fantasy site is less than stellar. For my non-SB Nation leagues I use Yahoo! and FanBall.com. The Yahoo! league was set up by a friend of mine while I chose FanBall for my own league.

I chose FanBall for my league because when I started up the league five years ago, they offered some elements related to keepers that I couldn't find elsewhere. The big one was that teams could keep three players but they didn't just occupy some nebulous non-draft pick status. Rather, they occupied a certain level of draft pick based on when they were originally drafted. Yahoo! has since added that to their game but I'm quite pleased with FanBall and thus haven't switched over to Yahoo!
