I'm going to say Yahoo because it's free and easy.

I really didn't have much problem with Yahoo, except for the third week when I put in a waiver request for Darrell Jackson and it sat there for a day at which time I cancelled my request and was automatically given to someone else because two people had put in a request for him - grrr.

If you want a free service, I think Yahoo is as good as any. They will learn from what went wrong this year so I bet next year they will be better.

Uses the same scoring and Commisioner service as NFL.com. They're good once the season starts. They also have very good cheet sheets and preseason advice for owners.

I did have a major problem with CBS however. The end of August, until the season starts, is a problem drafting on CBS. Their host computers don't do a good job handling the heavy traffic. To avoid the traffic, I was advised to draft earlier. That's not a good solution. As most fantasy Owners know, never draft until the last week of preseason is over.

I had to log back on serveral times to complete my live drafts. It was very frustrating and disappointing. I had my players ranked, but still ended up with ones I didn't want. Hopefully that issue will be addressed for 04. CBSSportsline is good overall, and they do payout to league champs, but buyer beware.

I've been in many yahoo leagues, and did CBS last year. I just didn't like CBS aesthetically., I feel much more comfortable with yahoo's than trying to navigate through CBS's clunky interface.

I had leagues on ESPN, CBSportsline, and Yahoo this year. Out of these three, I thought CBS was the best (we did the private league, where you have a comissioner that sets up all the scoring rules, roster requirements, etc.). I think the cost came to about $10/team.

The league page for CBS was clunky, but the waiver process and live stat updates were great (on ESPN, the waiver process sucks, and fumbles aren't calculated until the following day). Yahoo is free (if you don't want live scoring), but don't try and change your lineup 5 minutes before kickoff (bandwidth problem).

I've never tried fanball, but I've heard good things.
