For a while they had the rankings free to view without Insider. Now you have to buy there draft kit for $19.95 for any rankings.

Or you could use the links I originally provided that still work! Ha! ;-D

It gets even worse, though. Just this week, ESPN starting charging for ANY of its fantasy articles, not just some of their stuff (like the rankings). That's just stupid. CBS doesn't charge for articles, NFL doesn't charge for articles, FFToday doesn't charge, etc.

Since technically I work for ESPN (Ok, I don't get paid or anything LOL) I should report you to them! Um, just kidding. Pretty smart way to get around that. ESPN is all about making money and this was just another way they figured they could make that extra bit of cash. In the long run though it will probably bite them as their hits on their sites will go down which will not please the advertisers they have. You can still read the correspondents section where I write for free though. ;-D

Interesting ESPN 'insider' perspective. I am still figuring out why anyone would bother using pay sources when there's so much stuff available for free. The only thing I'd consider paying for might be the stat-tracker type of things, just b/c it'd make it easier to keep track of stuff on Sunday. Not that your articles might not be interesting but sheesh, there's plenty of stuff out there that isn't free.

That being said, thanks for the ranks. I had stumbled on some thing like that in baseball and fortunately saved the links so when the path through the site changed, I could still get them. We'll see if it makes a difference....
