which fantasy magazines are worth the $

Postby kyodeo » Thu Jan 08, 2004 7:34 pm

which ones do you buy?
which ones do you browse at the store?
which ones are best used as toilet paper?

i'm a third year fantasy owner and i'm ready to get serious, just wondered what a serious player needs to read...

I'm as serious as anyone else and I don't purchase any magazines. Too many resources on the net available for free.

the TSN mag is decent. its got 3 year stats and ron shandler projections. it also has some decent strategy articles, auction dollar values and that mess they call a mock draft. other than the mock, its good.

I buy Lindy's every year.....then I give it to a competitor. It stinks, but that 5 bucks is worth it from a disinformation standpoint.

misdirection

Postby kyodeo » Thu Jan 08, 2004 7:56 pm

nice advice tribe fan.

mis-information is one of my favorite techniques. that's how i got priest holmes this year...weeks and weeks of "gee wiz, do you think holmes will be healthy? he's coming off of that HORRIBLE hip injury"

glad i'm not in your league.
