The NFL site is terrible compared to Yahoo. Yahoo offers so much more in ways of player rankings, forward views of matchups(can't see how I compare to my week 2 opponent) so I can set my rosters and be done with it. You try to read player updates and it takes you to a whole new screen rather than a pop up window.

 

For all the Billion$ the NFL has, they dropped the ball here. I even sent them a comment to recommend they have their web developers copy Yahoo's FF site verbatim.

 

Looking forward to a good season with you guys after I figure out how best use this FF site. I vote Yahoo for next year...... Just Sayin' :blowup:

Agreed.

 

I joined the JN Yahoo League this year and considered joining the other one as well but the NFL.com was terrible.  Just didn't want the frustration.

Sorry you're unhappy. It won't be that bad. But I'm moving this to the fantasy forum

I think we went to NFL.com last year due to the Yahoo server snafu from the year prior. It worked well during the season.

I think my TE and WR's will do better than yours, but I'm afraid Brady could put up P. Manning type #'s against Buffalo.... We'll see come Sun.

FYI... contacted the NFL FF administrators about things they can do to tighten up the site. Surprisingly, I received an answer the next day and have had 5 more discussions with them since then. I applaud their customer support. The person I spoke with agreed, that Yahoo does some things better than them since, as he stated, "They have been around a long time. We just took over the game in 2010" He did show me some functions that I had no clue about. I don't like the fact that I can't view future week matchups and each teams projected points other that my current matchup( you can view the entire seasons matchups on Yahoo).
Listen, I'm grateful to be in your league. I'll figure out how to best use this site to kick all your asses!!
