Your in luck, just about every website has a free version. Yahoo, Espn, and Nfl.com all have free and pay sites. Yahoo really stepped up this year by adding free stat tracker which will track the points and stats of your team during the game and also how well your match up is going overall. Espn has always been a fan favorite but Yahoo has really stepped up. Also Yahoo offers free mock drafting, which is an important part of Fantasy football because you can practice taking the players you know you want at different spots. Lets say you want Kurt Warner and you think you have to get him 2nd round, well by mock drafting youll see he usually falls to the 4th round than you can save him and pick a rb or receiver in the 2nd and 3rd. Hope this helps
What is the best site to host a fantasy football league?
I've used all the following:
Of those the only one I really don't like is CBS Sportsline. They have a clumsy draft interface, cheesy roster limitations, and it's just cumbersome to use.
Sandbox was my favorite before they were acquired, followed by Yahoo.
ESPN's is easy, but we found it suffers from server traffic and is locked up more frequently.
In short, none is perfect, but Yahoo, Fleaflicker and Sandbox (in that order) each are just fine.
Pay sites really aren't worth it unless you want to go for a cash prize as in CBSSportsline.
A $12.95 upgrade in Yahoo gets you a decent draft kit and Stat Tracker which I really enjoy. Yahoo's free leagues are adequate for most people.
What is the best website to use for a fantasy football league and why?
Yahoo is one of the best free leagues.
They offer live drafts and real time stat tracker during the game.
Yahoo Plus is not free, but is very good, however, terrible prizes for winning the league. They now give out plaques to the winners of the league. In the past they gave out your choice of NFL team jersey.
CBS sports & NFL.com free leagues are ok.
They have nfl analysis giving you information on players each week
Espn leagues are ok -pay leagues a little better. They use to give out t-shirts and trophy to winners. Good before game time information. Open chat on Thursdays durning the season. You can ask the Espn sports associate football questions about your team players. "who to start'
USA Today offer this service for free every Thursday
Fox leagues are ok - they also have a chart each week on who to start and sit
The Sporting News legue is ok, however the pay league is very good. Lots of information and updates on players before game time. Very good information about your team players durning the week. You will get a newsletter on what players to start and sit each week.
All leagues offer live drafts if you join early, except The Sporting News.
If joining a free league, I would go with Yahoo. "The Best" You can always get football information from espn, the sporting news, nfl.com and cbs sports.com
If joining a pay league, I would go with CBS or The Sporting News.
I hope this help
I like the camaraderie,ERR,I like stomping on pansies like these other answerers!
I'm already in a league this year,and I've been playing Yahoo fantasy sports year round (MLB,NBA,NFL) for about 15 years;Since back when Yahoo wanted us to pay for live stat tracker (What a joke,I never paid for that!)..Yahoo fantasy sports is ADDICTIVE,I can't get enough of it!
(Before I played Yahoo fantasy football I knew very little about NFL football teams;Now I could probably name every teams starting offense off of the top of my head!)
Yahoo has the best live football draft boards PERIOD,I LOVE talking SMACK to my opponents during drafts,and Yahoo experts rank players better than ESPN,CBSsports.com,and NFL.com..Their live drafts pale in comparison to Yahoo.
I also like Yahoos' mock draft set up.,and I've done about 20 NFL mock drafts already this year.I hate to lose in fantasy sports,and I rarely do,which is evident in my Yahoo fantasy sports trophy case.That is a really unique & attractive part of Yahoo fantasy sports.I've won lots of leagues at other websites,but they didn't have trophy cases,trophies,or written records of former leagues & teams.I think that's what I enjoy the most about Yahoo fantasy sports;Looking through my Yahoo trophy case,and remembering all of my former teams,friends,foes,and contacts I've made over the years through my Yahoo fantasy leagues.The teams & leagues are there in black & white;The trophies are there in bronze,silver,but mostly GOLD!
What were the 2013 Indianapolis Colts draft picks?
1st Round - With the 24th pick they grabbed up defensive end Bjoern Werner from Florida State, he will help fill in for Freeney who was let go.
2nd Round - no picks traded that away to get Vontae Davis last year
3rd Round - picked up offensive guard Hugh Thornton from Illinois, he's big and agressive and will add to the offensive line. He's versatile and can play a number of positions.
4th Round - picked up center Khaled Holmes from USC to strengthen the offensive line
5th Round - (from Browns) picked up defensive tackle Montori Hughes, for his size this guy is fast and mean
6th Round - picked up strong safety John Boyett from Oregon. This guy has some knee problems but he's super fast. His 40 yard time was fast even with the injury. If it wasn't for his injuries he likely may have been a 2nd or 3rd round pick. He could be a great add on once he fully heals.
7th Round (first pick) - picked up running back Kerwynn Williams from Utah State. He's small but speedy kind of like Mike Hart was. Not really a guy that can break tackles.
7th Round (Mr Irrelevant Pick) - picked up tight end Justice Cunningham from South Carolina. This guy is big, fast and aggressive. He reminds me a lot of a mix of Allen on the Colts and Gronk on the Patriots. This guy is anything but irrelevant. Look for Pep to line him up opposite of Allen when they need a better pass blocker than Fleener or when they run some spreads with more than 2 tight ends.
I watched the whole draft. The Colts mainly focused on the offensive and defensive lines with some attention to the defensive secondary. After the draft they picked up some good free agent wide receivers and corner backs.
Is there a site where I can practice drafting players for Fantasy Football (NFL)?
yes espns fantasy football has mock drafts all the way up till start of the regular season. and their leagues have better settings and you get stat tracker for free on espn. you have to pay for it after the first week on yahoo's fantasy league.

Eric Brock from auburn, alabama did any NFL Team Draft him?
just scanned thru names, didnt see his any where, seen groves but no brock hes in list b and insiders only can see, may get picked up free agent thou
I read Warmack's entire draft profile, and the author doesn't predict to him to be a future HoFer.
He likens him to Carl Nicks, a 2x probowler.
At any rate, if the Chiefs need a guard and feel as if Warmack is the best available player in the draft, they should take him.
For some reason, there's a stigma attached to guards and defensive backs that they shouldn't be drafted that high.
Let's put it this way, though: If teams, knowing what they know now, can re-do the 2007 NFL draft, I'm sure Revis will be a top 3 pick, alongside Megatron and Adrian Peterson.
Michael Mitchel taken in the 2nd round by the raiders IS THE 73RD RANKED SAFTEY IN THE DRAFT NOT PLAYER SAFTEY?
Scroll down to the raiders second round pick, good luck finding is weight,height, college etc
the first round set the record for the longest at about 6 hrs and 20 minutes. the draft overall also set a record for the longest ever at baout 11hrs and 15 men. there were a ton of trades. just check out nfl.com's draft tracker
espn.com or nfl.com have draft trackers and if you're interested I could set up a web cam so you can see the live draft, but of course I will have to contact NFL Network and the NFL. Or, you could go to somebody's house who has NFL Network
