Does anyone subscribe to RotoWire? I think I've just always used the free RotoWorld, but am I missing something by not paying the $40?

I bought the Rotowire magazine this year. It's pretty informative.

It's never really dawned on me to pay for fantasy advice when there are so many free outlets available. I can't imagine the content on Rotowire being that much better than Rotoworld. I mean, everyone has access to the same news sources.

Wire seems to tout their speed at posting the news and their analysis afterwards. World's analysis is a little iffy sometimes, but at least it's generally better than Yahoo's.

Fantasy analysis is kind of a silly concept anyway. Will Leitch has a pretty good chapter on this in his new book. It's a nice outlet for quick information, but these writers don't know any more than you or me.

But it's more like roster analysis - who's getting the playing time, who's next in line. And they definitely know more of that than I do.

I've been lead astray far too many times by rotoworld to recommend it over anything. I don't have much experience with rotowire and found myself to really not need it, but I'll give that the edge as of now for what rotoworld has lacked.

I see what you're saying, but I feel like Yahoo! does a good enough job in that regard. They're not very fast, but if a guy is hurt or loses his starting job or whatnot, they'll usually update his player note.

The CBS Sportsline player pages aren't bad either.

Yahoo uses rotoworld as a main contributor with their notes, so I do use them to get early word on anything regarding fantasy. I just don't take their advice.

That's true about Yahoo. And I use them, Rotoworld and other sites. I was just wondering if others thought Wire was better. Maybe if I were in a pay-league, I'd be more inclined to spend the $40.

I use Rotoworld, because they compile all the news-stories in one place. I don't really trust their insight though. Maybe I'm cocky, but I think I know more than they do.

i was just saying that the players didnt care about winning it for the sec. they wont it for Auburn, all former players that never had the chance. all fans who have waited so long for something so great and for all the faithful that are no longer with us.
 
Piss off, Gulliver. I'll post wherever I want to post. Quit being such a pathetic bitch. It's like seeing "sheff" on your screen turns you into a ten year old. The ignore button works. Consider that your alternative.

No ESPN users here? I use ESPN fantasy and Rotoworld the most.
I don't see a need to spend the money on sites like Rotowire and CBSsportsline..

Rotowire doesn't give you anything that Rotoworld can't for free.
