what happend to yahoo's matchup analysis?

Postby iloveny18 » Fri Sep 23, 2005 9:00 pm

I enjoyed reading them, but these past couple weeks I couldn't find their matchup analysis they do of each game. Does anyone know what happened?

They hide them. Seriously. :-[

They are a pain in the butt to find each week, but they are in there. What I normally do is do a search on a player and look at the news links they have. If you find the right one, the matchup will be in there. From there you can (hopefully) get to the main screen with all the matchups. Sometimes they are blacked out though...the way they do these is quite annoying. :-t

Try this link (The Lung posted this last week):

Nobody took it seriously ;-D
Well, nobody ever took it seriously. It just took them a while to realize it.

it's still nice to see four or five stars in front of your guys...check in the new and "expert" advice section. they actually give you your whole team, as opposed to having to search each game for that third wr that you can't decide on...if that's your only source...

While I don't take the match ups too seriously, I have always enjoyed looking them over.

It seems like Fanball is no longer doing the “star” match up tool for Yahoo, but rather is now an internal project. There no longer the smart *** comments as well as general projections, but rather a bland statement about the match up. The other obvious tip off was the number of 5-star players this week. Usually it seemed as though there might be one or two, but there is over a handful this week. No big deal…

Anyone notice how on Tuesdays or Wednesdays they have the link for the matchups listed under the player news (i.e. "Giants vs Chargers matchup") and then it's gone? Then you have to look under the Expert Advice tab to find the "star ratings". I don't put much stock into them, but the matchup link was more in depth...still don't understand why it's only up for one day.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?
