Questions About Yahoo


I have a couple of questions that maybe some of you could answer.

I've been in a fh hockey league for several years now and a couple of us have moved pretty far away (too far to meet for a draft). We would like to keep the league up and running.

Would yahoo be a good solution?

Is the online draft easy enough for the internet challanged? We would not want a random draft.

Do you need the statTracker?

Does everyone need to purchase the statTracker?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Yahoo leagues are pretty fun. You get to pick the number of teams, which categories count for points, and what style (roto/h2h) your league plays. The live draft is solid. Once your league is organized, just have the league creator decide when to set the draft starting day/time. All you do is look for the player you want (its organized by position, alphabetical, or yahoo's own fantasy rankings) and then when its your turn to pick (about 90s each pick), just select him. I would recommend holding off on drafting for maybe a week or less, there are some players (mostly young 1st/2nd year players or those injured last year) still missing from the database, but will be added soon.

statTracker isn't worth paying money for, so you don't need it. Yahoo updates scores on a daily basis around midnight pacific time. the only difference is statTracker gives real time scoring updates for your team instead of the free service provided once daily.

stattracker is just something they have as an addon.

It just updates the standings as they games happen. Everytime a team scores they update the standings in your league with the new goal.

If you dont get the stattracker you get the updates the next day for free.

I never buy stattracker because i'm watching the games anyway.
