NOTHING ON CBS.SPORTSLINE IS RELIABLE....only the league manager is worth using or looking at.

ALL RANKINGS AND CHEATSHEETS ARE TERRIBLE.

i have been using the sportsline league manager for 3 years going on 4.

No, not too early. The rankings and such there are always crap, and always have been. No need to even look at them, it's ugly.

We run our money league through them for baseball and football and have been for the last 4 years. I'm perfectly happy with it, but haven't tried others in that time(am now in a cafe league on yahoo for free, but haven't experienced actual play yet, but prefer sportsline even paying).
But none of the info is reliable. I look at the daily notes since they're there, but look for the "good" stuff elsewhere(here).

It's simple...a lot of people who use Sportsline just don't understand the point of drafting for value. :-B

Unless QB's score HUGE points over RB's or you only start 1 RB in Sportsline leagues, this is a terrible ADP sheet to use.

People probably look at whoever scored the most last year and just take them. Not everyone is as knowledgable on how to draft as us FF addicts. :-D

I wouldn't trust a Yahoo ADP sheet either...nor would I probably trust ESPN's either. I'm not sure how good ESPN's has been in the past, but I have to imagine there are just as many uninformed drafters who play there also.

The only ones I would trust are ones like on Antsports.com or another site where the sole purpose is to let serious FF players tune up for an actual draft.

I'm not sure where the average draft position numbers came from but I would assume that a lot of those leagues had people in them that didn't know what they were doing. It looks as if they had early QB runs...

If you look at sportsline's pre-season rankings, it seems much more realistic. These reflect their writer's views on who is valuable. Drafts can really be skewed just by a couple dumb people in each one...so you really can't use that information out of context.
