To answer this question i went to the source and contacted the customer support at rototimes. this was their response FYI.
The Fanball magazine is the Roto Times magazine. We will only be producing one magazine.



Thank you,

Customer Support

Don't know how much this will help...but if you try to order a copy of CBS Sportsline's online it says it will be available to ship from warehouses in 5-6 weeks...don't hold your breath

I haven't gone too in depth with my Sporting News this year..but I'm kind of disappointed..it doesnt' appear to be as good of a product as in years past...and the projections on some of these guys appear to be VERY CONSERVATIVE (for example, Braun only matching his 97 RBI, Brandon Phillips only 21 steals, even though he's exeeded that in each of the past two seasons...etc. etc.)

I'm also pretty impressed with Lindy's..though it bugs me that the projections are in A-Z order
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?

its almost always the last to come out (sometimes a "Just Cheat Sheets" mag comes out after it)

It is out for sure i bought it today.
I also have the "fanball guide to winning fantasy baseball" huge disappointment! It was supposed to be in the fashion of the rototimes guide to winning fantasy baseball but its not even close. Rototimes had a lot more small details and went much deeper into each position. For exaple the last 3 first basemen are Ryan Shealy, Wes Helms and Kendry Morales, i was hopeing for it to go deeper like it has in years past. The sleepers section is fairly weak also, just the obvious guys like Alex gordon and carlos marmol.
On a positive note i really like the sporting news so far. It has the little "z" for sleepers next to players profiles and the "+" for injury risks. They have lots of extra little hunks of information scattered through out.
Sporting news is better buy in my opinion

Most of the combined rankings continue to blow, because almost all of these mags just organize the guys based on their crazy formula results for AL/NL only leagues and then put them in order with some sort of tie-break consideration.

I think that if you take them for what they are worth and knock guys like Ichiro out of the top 5 OFers, that there are definitely uses for the print mags. I just like the mocks and articles, in conjunction with the prospect reports nowadays personally. You could do worse as far as a beginner, but the $$$ values are so messed up comparatively...

I think the entire list is on the link given in this thread. I covered most everything that is out and available that has been spotted on newstands.
