Best NFL Player Statistics (Current and Historic)
Access to NFL player statistics is the life-blood for any fantasy
football enthusiast. Rather than giving a long list of resources that
provide various types of player statistics, we are only going to give two resources... the only
two resources you will ever need. The first resource, Pro-Football-Reference.com, is the source for
any player statistic from a historical perspective. It is a fast-loading site with easy navigation.
The second resource, NFL.com, is the source for any in-season player statistic occurring during the football calendar.
With these two sites, you've got all of your NFL and fantasy football player stats needs covered.

Best Fantasy League Management Service
Once you've formed a league, you will need to find a place to play. (If you would like to learn more, we've written the following article Where to Start a Fantasy League to help). Nothing will make or break your fantasy football experience than a league management service. A good league management service offers flexible league setup, solid customer service, real time scoring,
flexible scheduling options, reliable operation with little down time, and provides a friendly layout that is easy to use. Although it is certainly not a requirement, we feel a Fantasy Trophy case and league historical records can help personalize your league and make your fantasy football experience that much more enjoyable. As with many things in life,
there are both free and pay options. Although we have seen some pay leagues make the switch to free again, Yahoo! has never wavered from offering a very good free fantasy league service for football (and other sports for that matter). In fact, at one time in the not so distant past, Yahoo! was the only mainstream provider of free fantasy leagues. In a world of here one moment and gone the next, Yahoo! represents a solid rock for free fantasy football.

Best NFL Breaking News
It is always a good idea to have a small handful of high quality sources that bring up-to-the-minute fantasy football breaking news and NFL player information. The list below provides direct links to key sources that
specialize in quick-snippets of information.

STATS Fantasy Advantage
Best Fantasy Football Average Draft Position (ADP)
Average Draft Position (ADP) is a very valuable
asset to use during your fantasy football draft. These listings provide
the fantasy football average draft position of NFL players obtained from
literally thousands of fantasy football mock drafts and/or real drafts. They can be used
as a strong indicator when a particular player may be taken during
a draft, although bear in mind there are many different types of fantasy football scoring systems and owners participating in these drafts from different systems. However, in general, using this information with rankings allows a fantasy football
enthusiast valuable information that can be used as a general guideline when a particular player may be drafted, allowing
an increased probability of selecting that player as late as possible
in their own fantasy football draft. This allows more flexibility in drafting
and draft strategy. As for what is meant by a "fantasy football mock draft", it is precisely that - a
draft that serves no purpose other than for practice prior to participating in
a real fantasy football draft.

Best Fantasy Football Mock Drafts
Fantasy football mock drafts are precisely that - a draft that serves no purpose other than for practice prior to participating in
a real fantasy football draft. Participating in a mock draft can help you get a feel when certain players will be selected and also when
runs will be made on particular positions. The fantasy football mock drafts links below not only give you the
opportunity to refine your draft strategy for the upcoming season, but also allow you to participate in a draft used to determine Average Draft Position.

Best NFL Depth Charts
NFL players get injured, cut, traded, and win roster spots,
so having a couple of updated resources for NFL depth charts is always a good idea to
keep in your fantasy football back pocket.

Best NFL Game Weather and Stadium Conditions
Unless playing in a dome, NFL game weather and resulting stadium conditions can have a significant impact on player performance and the corresponding outcome of many fantasy football games. Sometimes that last minute fantasy football lineup
adjustment made as a result from a change in NFL game weather can make the difference between winning and losing. Here is a handy reference containing links from our friends up the street here in Atlanta at the Weather Channel for all current weather conditions for every NFL stadium.
