For those who like to read them in the offseason, they have started coming out.

Barnes & Noble had the Fanball NFBC guide yesterday

This is the earliest I can recall seeing any on the newstands as previously it was always January at the earliest and then February would see a lot. I know we are almost IN january, but still..

I never use these for drafting (so outdated by the time that comes) but always buy a few for offseason reading ;-D

Love all of the FB mags. Though some are outrageous, they are always a good read. The draft strategies that some people come up with are hilarious.
Great bathroom read, but as said above, not good at all when it comes to drafting 'by' them.


Man, I am already thinking about sitting by the pool with a cold 12 reading this stuff, and it's friggin 18 degrees outside! :,-(

$8 bucks is way to much for what they cover.

I bought this last week while Xmas shopping - I don't care if they just had random pictures from the past season, its the first one out!!! haha

I used to buy which ever one I could find first. And then I would be disappointed in the content, especially with the earlier ones. Luckily the Forecaster came out before i started going into fantasy with draw. I usually like SNews and Lindy's so I am sure that I will pick these up later.

Well said!

My favorite time is when the Prospectus comes out but I end up getting 4-5 magazines as well just for more offseason reading

I guess I'm the cheap one of the group, once a week for the next few months I'll spend a couple of hours at Barnes and Noble, reading the mags. One of my favorite times of the year.

i do the old BROWSE AND GO, most mags arent worth reading... i read the interesting tid bits and leave them on the shelf. I'll usually buy one for bathroom material like other posters noted.

Reading posts on the cafe and Razzball are plenty of info. I always feel about 3 days ahead of my league.
