Yahoo has been open for close to 2 weeks now. Be sure to tweak the scoring settings though, their new default scoring is AWFUL.

What is everyones fascination with Yahoo fantasy sports? Only place I always get stuck playing at that you have to pay for live scoring. What's up with that? I definatly prefer ESPN, and CBS is pretty good too.

Yea, it's not horrible or anything. It's just the live scoring thing that gets me. You have to wait until the next day to get your stats unless you pay. No other site that i've played on requires that, so i'm kind of surprised so many people still go to Yahoo. Maybe i'm just cheap.

Well that is a huge complaint about Yahoo and their live scoring. I can pretty much do it in a few minutes to see what I need to beat someone in a H2H week, with the exception of baseball scoring ( with WHIPS and OPS etc.) so I do purchase their scoring for $9 during baseball season.

Before last year they ****** up the scoring-a passing TD is normally worth 6 points in real life and Fantasy. Now in Yahoo default scoring, it's worth only 4 points. And a bunch of other changes. That's mainly why I didn't play it last year although I do play their other football games (Pick 'Em, Salary Cap, Survival).

As for free stats/scoring on Yahoo, it's not quite the same but just use their GameChannel application. It's not quite live (about a minute behind) but you can still get stats and track all the games as they're in progress. And it's free, you don't even have to have a Yahoo ID.

As much as I love fantasy football and football in general, I can't bring myself to get into "football mode" until the Cubs get swept in the first round of the playoffs.

Count me in when that happens, though!

I have always did Yahoo too and it sucked you had to pay $10 for live scoring (stat tracker). BUT it looks like this year they are including stat tracker for free with the free leagues which is awesome. I get 8 teams with 2 yahoo ids so end up paying $20 for stat tracker but from what I am reading it looks like it's going to free from now on. Anyone else noticing where it says it will be free this year?
