Baseball cause well, it's the best everything. Hockey is now my 2nd favorite and it doesn't really come close. So many more options too that football lacks, as far as scoring, etc. I mean really, yards & TD's, how boring is that?

Baseball will always be my favorite fantasy sport. Football just doesn't compare. More games = more strategy, football is too short. You have to stay active every day in baseball to put in starting pitchers and the like, whereas football you could leave the same lineup for a couple of weeks without ever checking it.

Baseball by a mile.

That being said, I had to vote for Baseball because my true love, fantasy NASCAR, isn't on the list.



I kid, I kid.

I LOVE fantasy football. I created the best team in the 17-year history of my league in 2005, shattering scoring records all season.

I lost five out of thirteen games, though, due to freakish matchups. I then lost in the first round when every one of the statistical leaders throughout the regular season took a crap in Week 14.

I love fantasy football and I voted for it in the poll, but it's a love-hate relationship.

Baseball and it's not even close.

Fantasy football doesn't float my boat because there's only one match up a week for 16 weeks. Where as baseball is 10x the action. ;-D

Although I must admit fantasy basketball appeals to me. I like the idea of counting points, PPG, assists, rebounds, and all that other stuff as well. But I don't have the time or energy to try it out.

Although I won my main football league, it is pretty much luck. Also, in baseball most everyone has a fair opportunity to get theirs. Every starting fielder/batter is going to get up, period. In football if the receivers go against a double-team they most likely will have no value for that week. Baseball, ;-D

I'm going with baseball. I love everything about it. My favorite sport to watch is still football. I love doing fantasy football as well, but I disagree with it being a crapshoot. Just like all fantasy sports the stars and vets are consistent. The only I really hate is if for some reason a players misses a game you're screwed :-t .
