ok well thanks a lot, i just need to ask one queation on defnese, do you usually draft a linesmen or a saftey or a conernack as your defensive player

It's usually team def - been a while since I played with individual defensive players, but when I did, linebackers were the best, only the very top linemen and def backs were worth having.
Only the top 4 or 5 tight ends are worth anything.
A top notch kicker can get you a lotta points over the season.

Another good site to visit is throughout the season it has a lot of good info. And of course, the FFC has a ton of useful information. For player rankings and projections, I find to be great. Click on "Forecast" for all of the rankings and projections.

A lot of people use the stud RB first couple rounds thing but the guy who usually wins our league takes 2 top recievers and then gets 3 decent RB.

Last time he won which was year before last he had Harrison and Owens and then he got Bennett Taylor and another mid level back!Worked out well.

The key is to do better than the other guy at each position by a wide margin.

Theres a formula for it but I cant quote it off the top of my head.

Yes, will love fantasy football. It kinda beats baseball in that all the emotion and energy gets used mainly on Sunday and Monday night. Then, you plan for next week.

I still like baseballs day in, day out action, but FF gets a LOT of smack talking....

I play both FBB and FFb pretty evenly, but the difference between the two is pretty big.
I think there is much more tactical decision making in FBB due to the scoring system and catagories. Rather than looking at 5 seperate cats for both offense and pitchers, FFB basically can be summed up by how many yards and TDs a player gets.
Another major difference is that there is only one game a week for each team in the NFL, so setting your lineup is easier than FBB where you have to check in more often to make sure a player isnt sitting or to make sure your SP isnt on the bench when its his turn in the rotation. This also puts a greater degree of enthusiasm on Sundays in FFB since your fantasy game each week will basicaly be decided on that day.
