    Get fantasy football info on your cell phone or mobile device 

    As the mobile Web continues to mature, the fantasy football world is slowly finding ways to migrate from your PC to your pocket. Most of the major fantasy football providers now offer mobile access in some (usually limited, but improving) fashion. If you like the idea of on-the-go access to your fantasy teams as well as important player updates and other news, here are some resources to help you stay connected to fantasy football wherever you are. (More …)

      You missed my new company (although thats not suprising since we just launched a few days ago). Blastats provides a mobile solution for fantasy football scoring. We can text full fantasy team scores to customers, email to them, and provide everyone with a mobile web page to track all of their teams from the top to bottom.

      We are also unique in that we can work with any league host site out there. Plenty of people play on different sites, and we provide an all in one place service that sets us apart from everyone else.

      After looking around your blog a bit, I can tell that you’re the kinda guy who would love our product. We’re growing fast right now, and looking to encorporate many new features by this time next year. If you could shoot me an email with some services you’d like to see available, we can add it to our list of things to do this offseason.

      A couple of final notes. Although CBS claims their service is “free”, it is not. You get charged either 3.99 or 4.99 a month for it by your cell carrier. And Yahoo isn’t free either, not if you want your stats on your cell. Its 9.99, and I’m starting to wonder where it is too.

      RotoWire.com has SMS text alerts at no extra cost as part of their subscription. You get player news instantly to your cell phone.

      Yeah, but that is just SMS text alerts for player news, BLASTATS sends your scoring updates for leagues across yahoo, espn & sportsline, etc, not just that Manning threw a TD, but how many fantasy points you got for that TD.

      RotoWire.com is a complementary service … it’s not stats. But player news … such as if someone got hurt in the game today or got cut from the roster.

    Power rankings updated: Look at all the pretty colors 

    The FFGeekBlog power rankings have again been adjusted to reflect the current state of the NFL; however, I have to apologize that I didn’t have the new tier color-coding set up earlier in the preseason. Hopefully they can still be helpful for a few of your drafts (I know at least one person to whom it will be helpful to!) If you head over to our power rankings page and check them out, you can see that all of the lists have been broken down into logical tiers that players can be grouped into, showing where drop offs in value are at each position.

    Some of the players on the move in the latest round of updates include Jon Kitna, Michael Turner, Jonathan Stewart, Rashard Mendenhall, Chad Johnson, Robert Meachem, Dustin Keller and the New York Giants defense.
