Wrapping up the fantasy sports conference

Well I'm sitting in the Tampa airport with a fair amount of time to kill (thanks for getting me to the airport super early, super shuttle) and am wrapping up a great couple of days at the Fantasy Sports Trade Association conference. I had a great time and really enjoyed the chance to actually meet so many of the guys whose content I link to on a frequent basis. They're an awesome group of people.

I presented my big award to the 2008 FSTA member site with the most accurate preseason rankings to Fantazzle Fantasy Sports Games, a site whose primary focus isn't even about content and advice but more about providing fantasy games. Gotta love the dark horse, eh? Next week I'll have an article up in the NY Times' Fifth Down blog with a list of the top 10 sites at each position and the top 10 sites across all positions - until then I'll slowly dish out the top 5 sites to you guys since that's the info I've already divulged at the FSTA conference. So check back tomorrow for the top 5 sites at the TE position.

Time for a few quick links:

  • Lester's Legends has been doing a solid job of comparing the two Super Bowl teams all week - take a look at Lester's comparison for the special teams.
  • Looking for some quality insight on which team will soon be adorned with Super Bowl rings? Try Tony Holm's The Prognosticator on Fantasy Sharks for for some stats-crunching-meets gut-feeling kind of perspective.
  • SportingNews.com gives lots of reasons why and how the Steelers will run it up on the Cardinals this Sunday. I have to admit (and I'm sorry Steelers fans!!) I think I'm pulling for the Cardinals here - may they keep their streak of unexpected wins running...
  • Finally, this time of year I love reading Gregg Rosenthal's Pancake Blocks blog to follow his media day experiences and other fun down here in Tampa. Read on - you won't regret it.

Tom at fantasyfootballdraft.com says thanks for tracking the performance of the fantasy football sites. Fantazle took first place, but how did the other sites do? Specifically, how did http://www.fantasyfootballdraft.com do?
