You've probably noticed the ads wrapping around the website, and figured out that SB Nation and Yahoo! Sports have teamed up for the official fantasy football league of Acme Packing Company.
Yahoo has over 5 million fans playing fantasy football on their site, and it's the online league I've been using for years. I've never had a problem with live drafts, and the player news has always been timely with solid recommendations. This year they've got an iPad app, so they've given me another reason to want a tablet.
A big warning: if you want to do a live draft, sign up soon. The good times are going fast.
I've got one league set up with a draft date of Friday, August 19th at 8:00 EST. I wanted it closer to the start of the season, but I also wanted it at 8:00 EST, so this was the best I could do. Anyone interested in playing: send me an email. If it fills up, we will create more.
Yahoo! Fantasy Football supports SB Nation and pigskin awesomeness. It’s also the #1 Fantasy Football game thanks to dazzling player research, instant stats with free live scoring, iPhone, Android, and iPad apps this season. Plus, new scoring categories for long receptions and rush plays. (Yes!) Sign up at yahoo.com/fantasyfootball
