Rotoworld vs. Rotowire?

Postby LynahFaithful » Mon Oct 06, 2008 4:22 pm

Which site do you primarily use? Which has proven to be more reliable, and which gets the news faster? Are there any real differences between the sites, someone told me they are owned by the same company? Thanks!

Rotoworld is 10x more reliable and it's not even close...I can count at least 6 bogus articles that I at least know of that were false released from Rotowire, sometimes I think they throw darts at a board hoping something sticks...I remember they were reporting Adam Jones was reinstated and that he was traded to Dallas falsely at least a few times, seemed to be they were trying to be the first to break news but they never had any sources like Rotoworld typically always does, Rotowire reports are all full of speculation so I completely stopped using them.

Yeah, I'm with ^^^, RotoWorld is by far a great fantasy resource and it very easy to use and access information. Second place I check, after the Cafe of course, for breaking and injury news.

Definately rotoworld...first site I go to on sunday mornings. Although there advice is usually dead on, I've notice that their fantasy advice seems to be getting a little bias these days. Just seems that they dog certain players, and build up others without being objective. But as far as injury related news they are dead on.

Props to soty for the sig!

Agreed with Rotoworld. Don't need to agree with all of their advice, but for injury news they are really helpful.

Rotoworld's Injury updates are great, but their "view" on players is more than often than not pure speculation backed up by cherry-picked snippets of articles or flat-outta their a***s conjecture. You'd be well served to click through to the source they credit if you want the whole story.

Rotoworld is good for depth charts.

Injury recommendations are not always accurate (example, starting Carson Palmer lol). Cafe recommended to bench Palmer the week he had the injury, and that was the correct call. I don't need to go past Cafe for injury recommendations.

Also, don't trust Rotoworld for projections either, go with your gut, they are wrong most of the time. It's a nice site to go to after the week is over and see how much value your players gained in the eyes of others.
