For serious fantasy players, the breadth of CBS Sports Fantasy, with its deep customization settings and commissioner tools, is tough to beat.
Player data: CBS Sports Fantasy offers a wealth of information on players and teams, including advice, columnists, video, and draft and free-agent guidance.
Manage your league and team: You can draft, set your lineup, and add and drop players from your phone. You, of course, can also manage everything through the CBS fantasy site.
A lot for free: For free, you can include 10 tens in your league using a standard scoring system. You can run a live snake draft or set up an automated draft where owners create a rank list of players and then have the draft system automatically draft for each team. You also have access to player stats, game recaps, and real-time scoring projections.
Even more with paid: For $149.99, you can include as many 30 teams in your league, and customize your league rules, drafts, and scoring system. You also have greater control over the pool of players, keepers if you are in a keeper league, and scheduling.
Pricey: If you're part of a serious league, the $149.99 price tag may be a bargain, allowing you to set up and manage the league exactly as you want. But for more casual leagues, you might be able to find what you want for free.
If you are looking for a fantasy site that lets you fine-tune your league rules and offers comprehensive commissioner tools, it's hard to beat CBS Sports Fantasy. But the customization and breadth will cost you. If you're more concerned about money, other top fantasy services, such as from Yahoo or Fleaflicker, offer much of CBS's flexibility for free.
