Fantrax does have a pretty comprehensive free option. The $59 adds a few options, most of which, for me, aren't worth paying.

Do any of these sites offer a FAAB system where all players on go on waivers daily once games start and then the winning bid that night is awarded to the owner?

Yahoo's FAAB system seems like it's weekly(correct me if I'm wrong) and weekly waivers for a daily transaction league seems silly.

CBS has the option to have players to be picked up only by the FAAB through out the season.

I would recommend Fantraxx. It has so many options now and the webmasters listen to your requests. Very customizable and affordable. I use Fantraxx for my 30team MLB and NFL dynasty leagues.

What sites allow a player in an AL-only league to continue to accrue stats even if he gets traded to an NL team during the season? This is the one thing that I hate about "only" leagues, but we are forming a new auction league and it may need to be AL or NLonly depending on the amount of teams we can get.

I believe onroto has an option to keep the players stats even if he gets traded out of the player pool, but to the best of my knowledge I do not believe yahoo has this option...

Thanks!

It is pretty standard for there to be an option for that. I don't know of any sites that do not allow it.

Do any sites allow a waivers-then-faab system? My dynasty dream would be to allow dropped players to keep salary through a round of waivers, then reset to minimum for FAAB bidding.

Thanks for the info, I checked out the other thread. Found another option refereed to in that thread, allstarstats.com. Guess i need to add that to my list.


I've used allstar for years, even going back to when they were known as usastats (I think they were gobbled up by rotoworld, if not mistaken). If I can answer any questions, just let me know. We pay I think 40 or 45 per team. I'm just the loyal type so haven't strayed from allstar, but in terms of complaints the main one that comes to mind is the fact they don't have a "DL" status, which is inexplicable to me. So we have to use "Farm" to equal disabled. I can't speak to the FAAB process because we use a "sealed bid" email/honor system and the Commish then implements the transaction(s).

If you are paying $40 a team, that is way overpriced, $400 for the league. -- I hope you mean $40 for the league.

I know what you're saying, but like I said, I'm just not a fan of change. Plus they have our archives. My fear is going to another site, disliking it and realizing made a mistake. Is there a consensus top choice out there? I'll just have to peruse some sample pages.
