I've used rotoworld rankings the last couple of years, so I'm wondering what everyones thoughts are on them? I understand projections can't be a perfect science, but they were just as good as the free projections out there - some misses, some spot on, but generally relatively fair in comparisons.

I'm wondering what others think? I'm really disappointed with how a couple teams are performing and it's sort of reminiscent to last year. I know, I know were only in the second week, but I went through this last year and drafted pretty incredibly. I had a balanced team, filled up shallow positions and had depth last year and according to the rankings I had like 8 players in the top 40 in a 16 team league..... and did came in 10th. I look back (because I print rankings) and the accuracy is just as good as free sites.

Look, I know it's not a perfect science and you have to make judgement calls as well as use them just as an additional resource, but what do people think? Just wondering.....

Live and die on them. I'll look at others out of curiosity but in the end I use them. Their the most legit website. And their constantly adjusting them as news breaks, injuries, slumps, ect. You can't say that about most other sites. This crew knows what their talking about.

The only rankings I care about are my own personal ones.

"Choosing between stats and scouting is like choosing between beer and tacos. In other words, its a choice nobody should have to make, since both are great and are perhaps even better when consumed together."
