Hey, ramsalldaway ... just make sure you don't change your friend's lineup "by accident" :-?

In theory, StatTracker is worth the $10, when it works. Two years ago it worked great. Last year it started freezing about once a quarter. This season it's gone even more downhill.

I agree the NFL.com has the most reliable and quickest update of stats.
... in my opinion, of course - but that should always go without saying.

Yahoo! Box Scores works for me. ;-D

I was actually gonna buy Stattracker, then realized it'd be stupid because I can just wait a couple of days to see if I won or not...

Stattracker does stop, but mine always refreshes when ya click on your matchup, or another matchup...
For some reason it doesn't seem to refresh itself.
Don't blame us if your players stink the place up....You got our OPINION, your not paying any money for advice!!
If your new guy gets injured.. it happens, and not part of the equation beforehand.
Good Luck, and Thanks for being reasonable.

Since I am in 4 leagues, and I like to know who else is winning, a pen and paper takes a long time. Even if I just check mine on NFL, thats 4 teams for me, and the 4 opponents im facing. That means I have to keep jumping around on NFL.Com, then writing down numbers and etc. Its easy math, but its very irritating. For 10 bucks, its worth the total time saved. I have had only one problem with it last week, where it took a long time to update. But then it started again and there was no problem. Though its been a bit depressing since now I don't have to wait until Tuesday to see how bad I've lost ( :~( ) (Combined fantasy record 3-9)

Dangit...I wish I had seen this at work...

I made a makeshift "stattracker" in Excel today. Of course, it won't probably be exactly correct for your league's scoring. But, it works pretty well. Next week I'll just plug in all the values for all the players involved from the Gamecenter at NFL.com. This will tell me (barring stat corrections) who needs what after Sunday's games.

I'll host it on my Netscape page tomorrow if you'd like, but for it to be accurate for your league, you'd have to have the following league settings...

10 yards/point rush, rec, 25 yards/point passing, 6 pt TD's, -2 turnovers, and standard Yahoo! team defensive points.

If you desire, you can tweak the formulas yourself to suit your league scoring.

you get a great one with NFL.com fantasy teams... NFL.com leagues are worth it just for the tools you get access to.. you get the latest injury news, Live stats... I really get alot of use out of the free agent bank.. in my money league, (that isnt online) if I need to pick someone up I can get in my NFL.com account go into free agents and see who the top performers are, and its all broken down by every stat and ranked and by fantasy points... then if you go into the individual players profile you get like this graph that displays player consistancy... anyone who has the NFL.com league knows exactly what I mean... Now I could never get through a fantasy season without access to those tools...

StatTracker has nothing to do with "math". I think we can all add and subtract (though you may be proud of this skill). It is about saving time. Good luck using your math skills when adding up points for multiple leagues, teams and scoring rules. You would spend all day with your pencil and paper vs. actually watching a game.
