Welcome to the get ****ed by yahoo club. If you missed our couldn't get into the draft you ended up with matthews ormartin, or in my case both. Yahoo blows

I was walking through the train station in DC with my Seahawks hat and some lady yelled out "Hey Seahawks! How's it feel to steal a win?!"

Feels good man.

Judging a fantasy site based on their ratings is dumb, and so is relying on those ratings to give you a good autodraft. I don't care if it's yahoo, ESPN, whatever; you should always make custom rankings and if you don't you shouldn't expect to get a good team.

I don't make custom rankings because I don't normally miss drafts. The one was my fault since I thought it started at like 8:30 and it was actually 8, but the other one had nothing to do with me, I showed up early and couldn't get into the draft despite trying over 10 times across 3 different browsers.
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.

But it's SOOOOOO much more accurate than the old rating system and it gives Gruden another stat to exaggerate and give nicknames for.

espn's qbr is no worse than regular, and imo is better in many ways. pretty sure it incorporates runs and the max score is 100 so its easier to judge. the most annoying thing about it is that they jam it down our throats
