Would you say that ESPN is closer to providing the tools that would allow a dynasty league? Are they just a few tweaks away? Or is Yahoo closest? I've been using CBS for so long that I don't know the changes these two providers have made over the last handful of years.


I doubt we'll see a dynasty format of some kind from either provider, but if I had to pick one, ESPN would def. be closer because their player pool includes almost every player in the minors, while yahoo only includes mostly the top prospects and a handful more. Although, they have been working to improve this part and they included a lot more rookies the past 2 years than they have in the past, however; they still are not close to the size of ESPN's player pool.

I've played in both ESPN and Yahoo leagues, and both have their positives and negatives. Overall I prefer Yahoo's organization and layout more, but ESPN is still solid. If yahoo ever gets a player pool the same size as ESPN, they would blow them out of the water IMO, which is why it surprises me that they haven't done so to this point.
