I've always liked Rotoworld and think they do a very good job. ;-D I use them for research quite a bit. :-)

Haven't tried any of their pay stuff yet though, so I'm afraid I'm not much help there.

I went a step further than buying just the Online Draft Guide and purchased the combo which adds on Rotoworld's Season Pass premium services. Very much worth the $24.99, in my opinion.

If you have any more questions, let me know. ;-D

I have never really believed in paying for someone else's fantasy knowledge. There are plenty of good guys around here who will give you thier opinion for free. As far as rankings and what not, its more fun to do those yourself anyway. ;-D

i agree with BG.

making predictions and rankings is the best part about it. There is so much free information on the internet. I feel crazy when i buy a magazine for the crapper..

i like rotoworld's site (links/blurbs of seemingly all relevant info) but i dont always agree with their opinions. is it worth it? i havent purchased it but it seems the features (Closer Report * Games by Position * ADP Report * Injury Report * Depth Charts * Transactions * Off-Season Moves * In-Depth Team Pages * 2007 Free Agents * Mixed Mock Draft * Draft Strategy * Sleepers * Busts * Top 100 Prospects * Speed * Holds * Top Offseason Moves * Middle Relievers) are available for free elsewhere. i guess it just depends on how much free time you have. personally i'd rather google sleepers/busts, etc. and read more than one opinion.

It is the main news website I use to check every few hours.

Pouliot is actually very good and it always seems like he thinks a lot like I do or vice versa. I don't always agree with the opinions on news capsules though.

I second this. Great for news.

And I think Pouliot is great. He's level-headed and logical, and he doesn't play hunches. His tiered rankings are generally the best of the experts.

I used my own tweaked version of his ranking in a keeper league draft last year. My core this year: Miguel Cabrera, Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Carlos Lee, Matt Holliday. Thanks, Matthew!

I'm tempted to buy this year, but they give out so much great info for free. Plus, I tend to buy their print guide (which I'm hunting for now). Granted, the rankings aren't updated, but they are there.

We try to make the draft guide as comprehensive as possible.

I really feel that the spot we really shine is with the player profiles/outlooks. They get updated each time we post news on a player.

If a guys is struggling in the spring it is updated in real-time and you never are left with stale info.

Also a cool new feature is the print-on-demand. Basically you get magazine-esque pdf booklet that is updated to the minute.

You simply customize to your league(AL, NL, Mixed), press print and bring to your draft.

If you buy it and think it isn't worth it - we'll give you your money back - no problems at all.
