Guys are reporting to OTA's and we're getting ready for training camps to open. The 2013 NFL season is just around the corner. FFN is live and ready to help you win another fantasy football championship.
The first thing you'll notice is the new logo. It was time for a new look and I think the new logo helps us achieve that. You'll also find some new enhancements across the site as well.
Fantasy Football Projections - Our consensus 2013 fantasy football projections are now available for both viewing as well as exporting to Excel. Feel free to sort the stats interactively including the ability to sort by multiple columns. This has been one of the more frequently requested features.
Fantasy Football Auction Values - It happens to all of us who particpate in auctions. Bidding for studs seems to take off and the potential to overspend sinks in. Don't let that happen to you! Find value in your fantasy football auction leagues by taking into account the FFN consensus auction values. There's no place better to get fantasy football auction values!
Fantasy Football Tiers - Viewing players based upon tiers is one of the most effective drafting techniques available in fantasy football. A tier is comprised of players who should contribute as much as some of their peers. This is where we put the elite guys together, the great, good, average, and below average players into groups. For example, you ideally want at least one running back from a top tier, at least one from each tier, or as many from top tiers as you can get. Watching tiers allows you to see which skill positions have an abundance of players and which are scarce. Fantasy football tiers are an excellent way to conduct value based drafting!
Mock Drafts - Now you can draft against the FFN computer in a solo mock draft. This is a great on-demand mock draft option. Simply pick your draft spot, customize your draft settings, and get your mock draft on! The FFN computer will draft against you. We're also working on a live mock draft app where you'll draft against other FFN members. It's currently in the FFN Labs because it's not quite ready for prime time just yet. The next generation Draft Buddy is also in the FFN Labs. We hope to have that ready before drafts start getting serious.
Fantasy Football Depth Charts - If you're afraid that Tim Tebow might outplay Tom Brady and earn the starting nod for the Pats, this is the place to see where they stand. OK - seriously...once training camps open up and roster movements become more frequent, we'll be monitoring the situation for all 32 teams and report back here.
Player Pages - We've enhanced the player pages to include more information including more fantasy-relevant information.
In addition to the things you'll be able to see right away, we've added dozens and dozens of minor things that you might not notice. For example, when reading fantasy football news, FFN now sorts the news by most recent instead of by source. We've made new tweaks to the NerdRank algorithm, extended session lengths so you don't get signed out of FFN so quickly, and much more! We're working hard to bring you new tools to give you an edge this year.
If you have an idea or suggestion, don't hesitate to shoot us a message at [email protected]! I'd love to hear from you!
Good luck this year!
