The Dog Days of Summer

Well, it is that time of the year when many Fantasy players find themselves looking for something else to do on the site.  65% of the Fantasy Baseball players are likely too far out of it by now and have given up. Fantasy Football drafts are just starting to pick up now, but we're still over a month away from regular season games.  You've proven that you're not too interested in the topics I've tried covering over the summer.  So, I'll just use this space to give you a few suggestions for things to occupy your mind as you try to beat the heat...

Fantasy Football Mock Drafts - We relaunched our Mock Draft product a few weeks ago.  It's now easier than ever to get into a draft.  You can select the position that you'll actually be drafting from so that you can get a real feel for the decisions you'll have to face in your real draft.  We made some changes to the logic that the auto-pilot uses to make picks for empty draft slots so that it will give more realistic results. We've also added mock Auction Drafts this year, so if you participate in an auction, you can practice in there. It's totally free and you can use it as many times as you like. For the record, there's a good chance you'll be practicing against me...I've been using it to prepare for my drafts (rather than write blogs).  Another great tool to help you prepare for your draft is the Downloadble Draft Kit .  It has lots of quality content for your draft, takes seconds to download, and is also free. You could be a force to be reckoned with heading into uyour draft if you use these two products in conjunction with one another.  

Office Pool Manager  - This is one of the most popular products on our site, but also one of the most under-rated.  People will always tell me that they wish there was a site where they could manage an office pool.  And then I have to tell them that we've offered this product for like 10 years now.  Anyway, it's as cool as our other Fantasy products.  You can set up your own league or pool, set the rules anyway you want to, use NFL or College games (or a mix of both), play with the point spread or without it, set your own spreads or use ours.  You can even use it to run a 'Suicide' type pool.  It's also free and includes live updating scores and standings.
