TQ Stats/ Fanball

Postby KarlJ » Thu Jun 12, 2008 11:25 am

Does anybody use Fanball (formerly TQ Stats) for their FLB Service? It was a rough adjustment in the beginning when it switched from TQ Stats to Fanball but they seemed to have worked out the kinks.
I also heard that the former owners of TQ Stats created a new service (I think it's Onroto.com or something) Has anybody tried them out?

I used TQS last year, and it was okay, but for $99, I'd rather use CBS. They have basically the same format as TQS, with more insight, analysis and userfriendlyness.

Yahoo? is fine for almost everybody if you can get beyond the way they release new prospects into the player pool. My only gripe with that is that the smart player will either draft good solid prospects like Bruce and Kershaw, whereas the not so smart guys will read about the next hot guy to pickup from Berry or something, and pick him up with a high waiver wire ranking. The way Yahoo? does this seriously dumbs down the league and penalizes guys who actually pay attention.
14 team h2h keeper (keep 5), $101 FAAB budget. C,1B,2B,SS,3B,MI,CI,U,5SP,2RP... It's standard 5x5, but we use quality starts instead of wins. I currently have $1 left in FAAB money.
