Anybody know of any similar websites/software for fantasy football?

Football Outsiders has some good stuff for fantasy football, but with small samples and difficulty predicting TDs fantasy football has a lot of randomness involved. Much harder to predict than other sports.

I'm not sure about similar, but FantasyPros works well for football. FantasyGuru does good work on the premium side. I can't say I have wide knowledge of specifics of individual football sites, but there sure are a lot of them.

The fantasysharks "predictor" software is beyond fantastic for drafting.  

 

Their PAVT projections also work extremely well (especially when combined with fantasypros rankings).

Rotoviz is outstanding...it will cost you $30, but man they do a TON of stuff. I just joined this year based on a recommendation, and am very pleased.

Any of them particularly good for weekly leagues?  Season long leagues?

Nothing on rotoviz is worth $30.  The free, weekly Expert Consensus Rankings on fantasypros should be more than enough for 99% of fantasy football managers during the season.

 

EDIT: There is also this blog which has lots of saber-ish articles on football. http://www.advancedfootballanalytics.com/

 

There is absolutely no better full-season drafting tool than the fantasysharks "draft predictor".  I'll keep saying that until someone goes and looks at all of the amazing things it does.  Doesn't do you any good after the draft, but I can't tell you the last time I drafted a team that wasn't projected as a top3 finish barring injury (from basically any draft position or number of teams).

We will agree to disagree. Much more content if you pay the $30. Not sure how you can give a fair judgment when it seems you don't even know what all it has to offer. Someone I knew had an account and they let me check out all the content before I purchased the full version. To each their own.

But, I do agree that most free stuff is fine for FF...it's just a different game compared to bases and basketball. I just enjoy statistics and in depth breakdowns...it's interesting and I enjoy passing my time with it and crunching numbers. Rotoviz offers content I have never seen before, and imo is worth it. Maybe $30 is too much for some..idk. I play fantasy sports for a good chunk of change so a small investment on a site or two I find useful is money well spent.

Well I just wrote up a beautiful response and the editor ate it so... f' it.

 

I've used RV before, you assume too much.  I simply think their website lacks too much in the basic feature department to be worth $30.
