What is your favorite fantasy football magazine? I know all the information I need is in this wonderful site, but I like to read the magazines on my way to work. Any suggestions???

Reading on the way to work isn't really the safest thing to do.........

I agree.

I don't usually listen to what others think or what "reliable" magazines say. I draft who I think will produce, have a breakout season or be just a solid #3 RB. I listen to myself, and I'm probably not the only one.

some people take the train to work and it is not that unsafe to read on a train. Anyway...

I am not a big fan of Fantasy Mags because they basically say the same thing that you can find on here, ESPN, CNNSI etc. What is better is to read magazines about football in general, such as SI. They will give you good insite into what is actually going on in the football world, which translates into fantasy.

Most of the magazines come out in late May early June anyway.

Alot can happen in 2-3 months. I usually go online and get as much info as possible from whatever website I can find and ask others opinions.

I always get an updated cheatsheet just before the draft, but I usually know who is projected to do good.

Mags are nice for things like bye weeks, and minor stats like that.

But don't most train drivers don't pay that much attention, I mean all you do is push a few buttons and you sit back and read somehting, but when to stop and go. Anyways I don't listen to the mags, I just listen to myself and look for info online.

Personally, I think listening to mags is potentially more dangerous than reading on the way to work. :-b

You guys are good. How did you know I drove trains for a living? It takes a lot more than pushing a few buttons and sitting back. It takes great skill to stare at businesswomen all day without getting caught. At least with a magazine, they'll think I'm reading. From your comments, it seems that is all a fantasy football magazine is good for.

Seriously though, thanks for the insight. I'll probably buy one anyway just for something else to read besides the free sites on the web. I never really take them too seriously, but I do find it interesting to get different views on players. I've won my championship for the last two years and I have been reading the magazines, so they can't be that bad. Then again.... I've been going to this site for the last 2 years also.....
