Does anyone know when the Sports Weekly Fantasy Football edition will be coming out? Ordinarily I would have bought a magazine by now, but with the impending free agency chaos, obviously the ones currently on the shelves are outdated..

Any magazine that hits a shelf is already outdated :^

I didn't buy one either because of what Dream said. If anyone sees something new and comprehensive in print (not on the web), please post it here. Thanks! ;-D

I haven't bought a magazine in a couple years because I like to print my own rankings (I like to believe it intimidates my fellow drafters) but I was thinking about getting a couple this year. My plan was to get two of the most popular ones so I can see where my magazine-dependent friends (no offense to those who use them, but I do have some friends who swear by them on D-Day) are going to pick guys. For example, I'm very high on Kellen Winslow this year. I have him ranked way higher than any magazine would, but without knowing where everyone has him ranked I might take him too early. I also may wait too long and he will be gone.

I'm really interested to hear how many magazines you guys buy and why do you buy them?

Yes they might be out dated but I still like to red them. I always buy one or two to read on the crapper a week or so before my money league draft

Also, does anyone subscribe to Pro Football Weekly and is it still beneficial considering all of the INSTANT information available via the internet?

I do. But I do so for the betting information; specifically the Against the Spread (ATS) records. This is the only place I know to get that information.

I buy AthlonSports ProFootball Preview (not really a fantasy mag but, an overview of all the teams) then I make my own rankings per ADP.
