Best online sites for money leagues

Postby chadlincoln » Sun Feb 22, 2009 9:51 pm

I'm thinking of trying a money league this year, but I'm not sure where to look. I've looked in the classifieds, but those all seem to be individuals putting on their own money leagues where I would send them the money. I'm looking for some suggestions of sites online that you've used that you would recommend to use where you pay into a company and then they have payouts. Thanks.

Not sure if they are taking new teams, but an on-line league I'd recommend is mendoza baseball. I played for 2 seasons but could never keep up with the daily transactions. Still, it's the most realistic league (from a GM perspective) that I've seen.

People use private money leagues, because then 100% of the money goes to the winners (minus any site fees), and there are no 1099's sent out to the winners.

CBS and Sporting News both have money leagues, but they both keep a lot of the pot. I tried CBS last year and it was annoying having to send in the paperwork (that you have to get notarized) and then waiting for the check. Private leagues have 100% payout and you usually get your money pretty quickly if the commish is legit and uses paypal. Problem is worrying about whether the commish is legit or not. I had a football league that I found on the classifieds at the cafe that I had to wait several weeks and numerous emails before I got paid. The second place guy never got his money.

I used fanball last year...they have several different dollar amounts...last year I was in a 10 team $25 league that paid out 100 to the winner and 25 to second place.

I know this forum is like 2 years old, but try SportsGeek.com

It's a daily fantasy site, so you pick a lineup with a maximum salary cap each day and you compete head to head or against a group of other players. There are a bunch of similar sites out there, but i like it the most. And they give out the best promos in my opinion. if you sign up, enter "moneyballer" as your promo code when you register, and you'll start with a $50 bonus
Please check out my fantasy baseball iPhone app: FanValue, at http://fanvalueapp.com/
Enter in predictions or real player stats, and calculate the player's fantasy value
