Best Fantasy Football Columnist?

Postby LynahFaithful » Fri Oct 10, 2008 8:58 am

So... who do you think is the best fantasy football columnist on any website? Who has the best rankings, articles, etc...

For me... I hate to say it but Eric Karabell with ESPN doesn't seem to be that bad.

I'd say the best fantasy football columnists are the "chinstrap ninjas" at http://www.chinstrapninjas.com Of course, I'm a little biased.

I always liked Matthew Berry for some reason. Seems fairly down to earth, and takes time to personally answer e-mails, which is cool.

Matthew Berry. Hands down. So many ppl give him shi* bc he'll tackle the tough calls and make daring calls. He might be wrong but being great means you'll have enemies. I love it that ppl hate them bc they lost one week based on his calls. It's football. Who knows what will happen. And I love it that he loves it. Cool guy. Funny too and very knowledgeable. He makes some weird picks but has reasoning for every one of them.

Berry's problem is that he doesn't know anything...my vote goes for WP. ;-)

karabell is far better than berry at football. Berry is the god of basketball though.

i still remember when karabell made the call to not only pick up willie parker, but to start him week 1 of his rookie year. he's been money so many times.

berry seems more knowledgeable from the way he writes, but then the week goes by and you look back and realize almost all his calls were wrong (or barely right). He'll give himself a "good call" if some RB he chose scored more than 12 fantasy points... Berry has guts, but that doesn't make him accurate. He is all stats, no substance. Not once have I heard Berry mention watching a game and basing a projection off of how a player looks on the field, which is one of hte most important factors.
