Yahoo FFB "PLUS" League--worth it?

Postby SirGrotius » Thu Jul 06, 2006 4:39 pm

Anyone here using Yahoo's Plus league? It's expensive ($124.99 for the league), and I'm not even sure that includes the teams (there's no way they'd include a $24.99 charge on top of that for each team, right?).

My specific questions, besides the costs mentioned above is what kind of "extra" commish tools are offered, can one continue the league as a "keeper" league is so desired, and what else should I know about it?

Thanks a million!

Myfantasyleague.com is great. ;-D

Yahoo Plus is a rip-off. :-t

I got duped into paying for it last season. They offer you your choice of a tee-shirt or crappy trophy if you win your league. Whoop - dee - do. The extra info and fantasy insight is decent but not worth paying for.

They won't be getting my money this year.

hmm, i don't know if i trust myfantasyleague...

jimboozie, do you recall if you were able to set draft positions with Yahoo Plus, and also, do you know if you can continue certain players (a la a keeper format) to next season?

thanks again! i'll have to check out sportsline

Why wouldn't you trust myfantasyleague I used it last year and it was very good. If you plan on running a keeper or dynasty it is probably the best site I have seen. Another site that I use is webleaguemanager.com I have not had any problems in 4 years.

i've been using yahoo (happily) for the past two years (for free). i have a profile there (also do fantasy basketball) and all my players are familiar with it. i can't imagine how another league could offer that much more to make it significantly better. but i'm open.
