Before spam, popups, and fee's ruined it for me, I always enjoyed Sandbox for fantasy sports. Now I use Yahoo. What I miss most about Sandbox is that Yahoo does the rankings for you! (ADDED: I *DO* understand that users CAN EDIT ... my point is that way too much pre-ranking has ALREADY been done to everyone's pre-rankings before we even start!) Sandbox used to leave player rankings the way they ended in the previous season and let YOU rank YOUR players so it could truely be YOUR team. With Yahoo, they have an "expert" pre-edit YOUR pre-rankings. Now, I understand that their "expert" is not perfect ... there have been some comical examples in the past. However, I'm finding that the later you draft, the more Yahoo corrects them, and by the time a late draft takes place, there is really very little pre-ranking to do. What fun is that? I enjoy draft preparation ... taking the time to bump-up the players whose value has improved or whose health has returned, and bump-down those whose situation/health/age has worsened. I enjoy bumping up the RB's and bumping down the kickers and QB's. Yahoo leaves almost NONE of this to the individual. It's as if they are so worried that people will quit because their team stinks from lack of draft preparation that they "give everyone the same team!" I think everyone should be responsible for doing their own research, finding the sleepers, watching the positional battles, and assigning their own player rankings ... instead of being a drone in a league where teams all picked by the Yahoo "expert" essentially did it all for you! Anyone agree? Disagree? Know anyone at Yahoo who can make this opinion known? Thanks!
