And yes, quality of rankings is important in a fantasy site because it directly relates to their knowledge of football. Yahoo is horrible at player status updates, their stats and whole sports website sucks and their predictions(which I hope nobody takes seriously anyway) are generally far less accurate than espn(which is saying something because espn's suck too). I'd rather not have to change my lineup on yahoo but go to espn to get any reliable information. Not to mention how bush league the website is overall anyway.
My dad had a similar problem trying to get into a draft. He was using Firefox though and he switched to Chrome and was able to get in.
A sites ratings has nothing to do with it's interface and usability. Yahoo has a far better interface than any other fantasy site out there. They also offered more customization of leagues before the other sites did. A couple years ago if you played on ESPN in a free league it had to be 10 team and with their settings. That's changed now, and ESPN has actually improved quite a bit. I still give Yahoo the edge on interface though.
As far as projections I don't trust any site really. Randall Cobb has been projected at 6 or so points twice (on both Yahoo and ESPN) and I've started him anyways and he got me 10+ in both of those instances. You can't rely too much on projections, you have to look at performance and matchups.
