Well, since last year was such a success: This time, I'll open the floor. Which league to use? ESPN, CBS, NFL.com, Yahoo even?

Yeah, even though I did this league on nfl.com, all my others have been ESPN, and I prefer it.

If there's one thing Yahoo! does extremely well it's fantasy sports. Having said that I'm not going to be able to participate in this league this year.

I foresee not having enough time to take it seriously enough and that's not fair to the other players.

Yahoo has realy refined their system the past few years. They are much better.

I've never used Yahoo (always ESPN and one for nfl.com last year); is it THAT much better than ESPN?

Either way, I've set up one at each: Link: http://games.espn.go.com/ffl/tools/join?leagueId=291092

I just saw that Yahoo allows you to draft from your mobile device. That's amazing. They get my vote.

ESPN has way more friction. The queue is small. Last time I did a mock it held 4 guys. Yahoo!'s holds 20. You have to click, hold, and drag players into it instead of simply clicking an arrow like on Yahoo! Yahoo! also gives a nice whoosh sound confirming the addition to the queue. All the info like the player's position on your board vs. the Yahoo! board, bye week, etc. is also much clearer on Yahoo!. ESPN has a lot invested in icons and artwork. They are bulky and take up space. Yahoo! is much leaner and cleaner. The organization of and ease of joining a mock of the desired type is also way better on Yahoo! I find the experience much better on Yahoo! in almost every way.

But I won't be in this league anyway so whateva.
