Ah football. Hate it or love it, once it’s here it’s pretty much all anybody talks about, Facebook status updates about, Tweets about…it’s everywhere! If you’re firmly in the “love it” camp, you might engage in Fantasy Football. If you don’t know what that is, you’re obviously not in the “love it” camp, and likely won’t find much use for this post. But, if you do play a little fantasy football, here are some sites that might help you.
Fantasy Sports Central
It might look a little bland, but this site is your go-to for fantasy football or baseball, for that matter. They offer cheatsheets, rankings, and even offer customized weekly projections. You can look at cheatsheets for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, kickers, and defense, and they subtract out the highest and lowest rankings for each player and then average the rest to get their average for each player.

Junkyard Jake’s site is a little prettier than the last, and he offers news, a network, a blog, and the top fantasy players for the week. He sorts his lists by “RedZone Rusher Report” and other specific lists, and offers major news outlet sports headlines in a feed on his homepage.

Fantasy Football Librarian
This site is run by a nice lady who is a museum librarian in New York City. She LOVES football, so she created this site to make a place for fantasy football fans to get all the information they need. Plus, how cool is it that she’s a girl? She also conducts accuracy analysis of expert rankings – she’s been doing that since 2007. She also participates in a bunch of fantasy leagues. She totally knows her stuff.

The Fantasy Football Times
These people are the real deal as well. They’ve won industry awards for Best Fantasy Football Draft Kit, Best Site Update, and Best Web Article. They’ve got a collective 17 years of fantasy football experience (did you know it had been around 17 years? I didn’t) and they provide great content for fantasy football people.
Update: No longer in business.
The Football Expert
A minimilist site, this is a good place to go for quick and dirty information, and NFL analysis, as well as information about college football, mock draft databases, and a forum for lovers of all things football.
