    While there are already a ton of web sites out there to get your NFL news, you can add one more to that list soon, as Bengals outspoken receiver Chad Ochocinco plans to start his own “social news network” on Twitter. Apparently he will use his connections with other players in the NFL to break news faster than the mainstream media currently does it. His slogan:

    If I break it, you might as well believe it.

      This has nothing to do with Ochocinco or twitter.

      I’m here for your advice for my fantasy match up tomorrow.
      I have six receivers and only slots for three of them

      Steve Smith (NYG)
      Donald Driver
      Mario Manningham
      Roddy White
      Austin Collie
      Micheal Crabtree

      who will have a break out game? who would you trade for a RB1 to strengthen that part of my team?

      My RBs are Micheal Turner, LT, Rashard Mendenhall, and Pierre Thomas.

      Thank you for your time and your advice.

        Looks like your running back corps is pretty solid, so don’t fret too much about trading to improve there. As for your wide receivers, go with Steve Smith, Roddy White and Donald Driver.

    Fantasy basketball draft today – hooray? Fantasy basketball is like methadone – once the fantasy football needle is yanked from my vein, I’ll be much better off if I have something else to obsess over, even if it’s a sorry substitute for the real thing.

    Update – since many of you might be in the same boat today, I might as well share the fantasy basketball cheat sheets and other resources I’ve been digging up…

    • Fantasy Cafe’s got a great chart for nine-cat leagues. They even offer a Google Docs version. Nice.
    • I’m also liking About.com’s cheat sheets, with notes for every player – very helpful for a casual NBA fan like me. Just updated yesterday too. Assumes eight-cat scoring.
    • Funston’s Big Board is always worth a look in any fantasy sport.
    • ESPN’s player projections are great. With this much information about each player, though, you have to wonder when these were last updated. Wish they told you when each blurb was written.
    • If you’re looking for something to print out and bring to a live draft, CBS Sports offers a PDF draft kit. You need a free account with their site to download it.

      try deeproute.com

      It’s been my bye “season” fill-in for two years now.

        Pretty interesting concept… will have to give that a look come January.
