I am new to fantasy baseball, I have followed baseball since I was a kid but now that I am in university I am really getting serious about Fantasy sports and I was just wondering what magazines are the best sources for fantasy previews and news. I have looked at Athlon Sports and Rotoworld and wanted to know what else was out there.

I like Rototimes and Sporting News Fantasy previews.....

Sometimes websites can be better than magazines as they are more up to date. Here are some you should check out :

http://www.rototimes.com
http://www.addictfantasysports.com
http://www.mastersball.com
http://www.fantasybaseballcentral.com
http://www.drafthelp.com

Hope these help.......

I ordered the Rotoworld magazine and it seems ok. It would have been a lot better if they did not load it up with ads. And it is not really designed for fantasy rookies (the layout is not as appealing as other magazines).

Nonetheless, their player write-ups and team by team analysis are well written and helpful.

I am running a league for fantasy rookies this year. One of them picked up a magazine and had me preview it. The layout was very simplistic and perfect for owners who just want to become associated with baseball's player pool.

Its name was something basic like, Fantasy Baseball Guide 2004: Expert Edition. I can double check that when I get home.

If you are just looking to get a basic start to an introduction to baseball's player pool, it would not hurt to pick up some magazine that looks good to you.

Like hooligan1 said, make sure to check some fresher sources, as the magazines will quickly become outdated in many cases (ex. Guardado is no longer merely a $11 reliever ;-)).
