Just the facts

What if all you're looking for are sites that will provide player news? Read on...

  1. - One of the things I like about this news portion of is that you can click on weekly headlines and get a review of all the headlines separated out by day. Along this same vein, they keep their news archives up going back to 2001. Want to look back and see who the top rookies were a year ago or just how many years in a row a certain player has gotten injured - check out the archives. Also linked off this site is the Injury Report - always helpful in making those sit or start decisions. What is it missing? A web feed. (What is a web feed?)
  2. - The Player News is frequently updated and offers a line or two of commentary to go with each piece of news. Call it the girl in me, but I like having the player's name listed in a heading that depicts their team's colors and logo. Nice. Also of benefit is the ability to sort by team, position, or go directly to a specific date.
  3. - Hot Off the Wire brings news from many sources - if you want further information than their one sentence blurbs, don't worry, HOTW offers links to the players, teams, and news sources. You can divvy up your news information by Breaking News, Fantasy, Injury News, Transaction, Draft Information, or Free Agency News. The downfall to this site are the irritating ads for kffl products/subscriptions that are sprinkled throughout the rest of the player news. No thanks.
