Tuesday Swing Around SBNation: Fake Teams

Fooch's Note: For those who don't visit the site on weekends, this is generally a regular Saturday or Sunday feature. Due to some delays, I thought it'd be fun for Ninjames to post this during the week so other folks will get a chance to check it out.

I'm coming to you a bit late, but better late than never, right? First there was me screwing up, then things got moved around and long story short, we're doing this SBNation blog profile on Tuesday as opposed to the standard Saturday, which I will be going back to come next Saturday.

SBNation sits at 249 blogs, which I suppose its actually 250, but for some reason the Mocking The Draft blog isn't linked on their blogs profile page. Everything from blogs about your favorite football team (cough cough) to an entire blog dedicated to tracking Tiger Woods. How about that? SBNation is the most diverse blog network of its kind, and by being such, is the best.

Last week I took a look at Ridiculous Upside, and in previous weeks covered The Daily Forehand, a tennis blog, InhistoricUncommon Sportsman, and a bunch more. This week I had three blogs I wanted to take a look at, but I really want them to be thorough looks and thus I'm waiting for replies from the editors, so I'm falling back on another blog you may find useful right now, Fake Teams.

Editor: Ray Guilfoyle

Fake Teams is exactly what it sounds like, it's a blog for all of you out there that partake in some form of fantasy sport. No, I don't mean going larping with your buddies from your DnD club, I mean a man's fantasy sport! Some good ol' fantasy football or fantasy baseball. Things of that nature. I've gotten really big on fantasy things the last couple years. Heck, I'm even in a fantasy league on a message board that I occasionally go to. It's a best user contest and we actually drafted teams out of the users to see who would get the most votes. Oh yeah, I know what I'm doing.

That being said, a fan of fantasy football has a long period of time of being unsatisfied. No watching players, things of that nature. Well, fantasy baseball can be a lot more fun in some instances, and Fake Teams is the place to go to stay up to date. It's definitely, at the very least, a good starting point for those of you interested in starting.

The site offers advice to those of you looking to start out, there's plenty of discussion and everything concerning how you should draft. Strategies on who to draft when for each sport, and right about now you can still get in on fantasy baseball, so head on over and check it out.

There's not a whole lot I can say about a blog like this, so in lieu of the other blogs I wanted to do, I can still say that this is definitely a valuable resource for those of you into fantasy sports. So head on over to Fake Teams, register, check it out.
