I have had zero problems with Yahoo. I like Yahoo. I have heard mucho malo things about ESPN. CBS is good, but, but it costs money. So if you want a good free league then roll with Yahoo. For free Yahoo is darn good.

I would agree that for free, standard, non-keeper leagues where you don't care about live stats, Yahoo is just fine. Once you have to pay for live stats (i.e. Yahoo Plus), you might as well go to CBS and get all that goes with it.

How much does CBS cost? It has been a long time since I had a CBS league.

The CBS Commish product is about $10 per player, less if you have more than 14 teams. Really a nice setup if you are a commish, any mistakes can be corrected, including in the draft room

As a commish I find CBS much easier to navigate than Yahoo PLUS as well. Anything that needs to be done as a commish is easier and better on CBS.

I just renewed my keeper for $149.99. 14 teams = $11 each. ;-D

For free, ESPN is not so bad, but I have only played roto.

I also like Yahoo, but CBS makes the commish work in a keeper much easier.
Be excellent to each other.

Yahoo and ESPN are both good. I'm in a ESPN league and I love the free scoring update and we didn't pay anything to use it. I like both the same and I don't have a clear cut favorite but the free scoring update is nice

yes, the customization of CBS is great too.

Also another great thing about CBS is that you can export out their stats/rankings/projections into a spreadsheet that you can manipulate into your own if you want ;-D
