I told someone that I would be nice about the Yahoo ranking this year.

Its pretty obvious that Yahoo lets a computer figure out all this stuff. Everyone who was hurt or had a shortened season last year is way down on the list.

Personally i love it. The boys i play with in my hometown money league use the yahoo list. I should be able to steal RJ in the 5th at this rate.

Yahoo's Rankings always Suck. Yahoo's Football, Basketball, and Hockey Rankings were just as bad. You would think everyone would be used to it by now. It has to be done by a computer with heavy weight on the previous year, which explains all of the injured players dropping so low.

How can you look at Yahoo's rankings? I've surfed all over and can't figure it out. Do I have to sign up a league to access them?
