    So the last few years my wife has played in a work league at Fanball. Last year I joined a random league on NFL.com. So where do you all think is the best place to play and why? Please give me pros and cons and any associated costs involved. I'm thinking of starting a league this year with some old friends and I'd like to find the best place for us to do it. I would definitely like to find somewhere that is free or at least very low cost. I really don't have money to blow on Fantasy Football.

    Also, if there's not one already, I think it would be cool to have a MacRumors fantasy league if anyone is interested. :)

    I've done both Yahoo and ESPN fantasy leagues in MLB and NFL as a casual player. Can't say which one was actually better, but I have been doing more on ESPN the last year or so.

    +1 for a MR League(s) if we can get it organized correctly.

    Anyone else interested? I know we have a lot of NFL fans around here and I can't believe computer forum members don't play fantasy football. ;)

    I use to play on a league that used CBS Sports to manage it. It was good, I really liked it.

    ^^+1; my league plays on CBS sportsline and they are pretty dope. Yahoo is cool too but you have to buy the live-feed-update-tracker-thingy which is $10 for the season.

    I'm up for a MR-based league as well, as long as we could find a common time to do a draft that works for all involved. 10-team leagues are the best.

    I've played on both yahoo and espn and think the latter is way better, even if yahoo's stat-tracker is now free.

    Allright folks, I'm going to send private messages to everyone in this thread who said they would be interested in a MR league. If you know of anyone else on here then encourage them to post in this thread and I'll send them a message as well. It would be great if we could get a 10 -12 team league set up. I'll set it up, probably on ESPN, but I've heard good things about the new FOX system. Anyhow, anyone who wants to beat me to the punch can go ahead and send me a message if you want to. Make sure to give me an outside email address so I can set up the invitations to join the league.

    I think this will be fun. We don't have long to set up the draft, about three weeks.

    Talk to you soon. :)

    We're up to six players presently. So we need a few more. A 10 - 12 team league is ideal. Post here and send me a PM with an outside email address.

    Also, count me in as well. I have played Fantasy Football for each of the last four years and I love it! (I'm a huge Steelers fan and an avid football fan in general).

    We're up to 12 teams so I'm gonna set up the league and send out the invitations. If anyone else is interested then keep sending me PM's or post here. If we can get enough for a second league then I'll be happy to set it up. Once we're set up we'll start a new thread for trash talking and updates.

    To those who are playing or want to play and don't know anything about Fantasy Football, check out all of the major sports sites like, ESPN, CBS Sports, NFL, FOX Sports, Yahoo, etc.. They all have fantasy sections that will tell you more about the game, how to play, how to draft good players etc.. It may seem intimidating, but it's actually pretty easy. Of course some basic knowledge of football is needed.

    Thanks to those who have responded, this is going to be a lot of fun. :)
