Fox Sports Fantasy Baseball?

Postby ironman » Wed Feb 14, 2007 5:13 pm

Has anyone played with them? I'm considering it. Here's the reasons why.

1) You can create your league NOW
2) It's free
3) They offer every single feature of Yahoo and then some.

And for extra features I mean:

-you can split the league into 2 divisions (only available on Yahoo Plus)
-for H2H you can set a weekly minimum IP AND maximum IP (Yahoo is just minimum)
-you can set waivers to reset each week and be the inverse of the standings
-you can set your playoffs to incoporate more (or less) than just 6 teams, as well as setting when your playoffs start. Don't like playing the last regular season week, then don't!
-The league page looks cool. Not only is there a message board but there is an option to post your own news stories, not unlike the Sportsline league page does.

Does anyone have any other input about them? Mainly whether they run efficiently in the regular season without a lot of hiccups.

We used Fox Sports' fantasy football. If I had to do it over, I would've stuck with Yahoo, even though it's a pay site. Didn't like the look, and it froze up a lot...especially about 10 minutes before game time. It made it really difficult to set your lineups when you weren't sure who was active for the week.

I asked the same thing. I thought it looked cool, but didn't want to jump into anything.

It appears that we'd be the guinea pigs....
Or you sign up Ironman and let me know how it is? ;-D

Yeah I just set up a league in there to do this season as a test drive. I won't migrate my established keeper leagues to anything until I've tried it out first.

Who knows, maybe with this Yahoo upgrade they'll be offering more features in fantasy as well. A boy can dream can't he? :-? :-)

Yeah, I signed up as well. One thing I did not like is the fact you could not adjust the Championship to last two weeks, like Yahoo does.
