Here's the thing about magazines -

Are they usually outdated and useless in terms of actual planning/use on draft day in today's age? YES

BUT

I still buy a ton for football and baseball for just:
Casual reading
A good sense of popular opinion

Most of my planning stuff for baseball and football are my own creations but I still buy probably 6-7 baseball and 3-4 football every year just to read, and cant discount the second thing enough..there are still so many people who live and die by a magazine that if you keep your pulse on those opinions and feelings you can tell how your draft or auction is going to go (that and a lot of mocks of course).

I already bought the Sporting News one and will buy a few more (probably today a trip to Barnes & noble in order - lord knows it wont be Borders) and wont use them at all AT the draft. I devour them then usually donate them to folks in the office or at the VA.

Ill get the Pro Football Weekly, ESPN, and maybe one other one (the Index??) and just lay on the couch on night/afternoon and plow through.

Fantasy Football Index is one of the better magazines out there, but they are not doing a magazine this year because of the lockout - prob a few others as well that won't be having a mag this season.

Actually the Index is offering an online version they will publish I believe Aug 10th. Electronic format only, but these guys do their homework. You will have all the FA and trade moves included in their analysis. For a little extra dough, they also will provide preseason updates.

I get this every year to compare to my own projections - the most mathematically sound analysis of FF available in my opinion.

Fantasy Football Index also has a free update for magazine buyers. I've used them every year I've played. They also normally print later then everybody else to keep up to date.

I remember when me and my bro ran our fantasy league (which is on NFL.com now) we used to meet at my house,and everyone had magazines, papers, pens, draft charts written out, etc.... Now all it takes is the internet.:) I still buy one every year just to read through it, but use my laptop for all my drafts now (both offline and online)
