3 Hot Tips To Help You Win Your Next Daily Fantasy Football League

3 Hot Tips To Help You Win Your Next Daily Fantasy Football League

Fantasy football has become a daily activity for many during the football season. For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, essentially, you are the manager and coach of your fantasy football team. You can opt to draft pick your team players or you can opt for auto draft of your players.

Whether you are one who chooses to pick your own players or one who chooses to have your players picked for you, you have to follow football games on a daily basis to keep up with scores and performances of each player. The players on your team may or may not be from the same team, thus you are paying attention to all of the football teams, rather than just your favorite team. Beginners to the fantasy football league often select the auto pick option, but that’s not necessarily the best choice if your goal is to win every single week. Looking for a bit of help? Here are three hot tips to help you win your next daily fantasy football league.

1. Understand the Scoring

According to the Daily Fantasy site at Reviewster, this tip might be the most important when it comes to winning your daily fantasy football league. Every site has a different scoring method, and while they’re a bit similar in nature, there are some notable differences. To optimize your chances of winning, you must know where those differences lie. For example, on some fantasy football sites, receptions are worth 1 point, while on others, you’re only ever going to see a half point gain for every reception your players make. Another example is that a passing touchdown on some sites is worth 6 points, while it is only worth 4 points on other sites. The ability to spot simple differences like these means you know which players are going to give you the most strength for a given site, and you can start building your team from a strategic perspective..

2. Pay Close Attention to Your QB and WR

This is a very important tip posted on Yahoo, to seeing success with your fantasy football team. Obviously, you don’t want to choose your QB or WR randomly. You can choose your favorite QB and then choose your favorite WR based on individual stats, which is what many people do. However, the better strategy is to choose your favorite QB, based on performance, then choose his favorite WR. Doing this will increase the chances that your QB and WR will perform well together for your league and help you see those high win numbers you really want.

3. Go On Bargain Hunts for Sleepers

Something that people don’t realize is that fantasy football sites often take their time to update the players’ salaries. This can work to your advantage if you look for bargain players. The simple reality is that you don’t have an unlimited budget, and if you have to take a budget hit somewhere, you don’t want it to be on your key players. A good bargain hunt can help.

The best players in the world of bargain hunting? Those coming back in after having had injuries. You can also look for players who have been turning up their game over the last few days or players who have been stepping in for the injured players who have not been given a salary increase yet. Chances are, you will be getting a great player for less money. Those guys who haven’t quite hit that big spotlight best are always going to be a cheaper choice, and they allow you to use more of your budget for the the players who are consistently solid from week to week to week.

If you want to make sure that you have the winning team in your fantasy football league, you must know and understand the scoring system used on the site or sites you are involved in, choose a QB and a WR who work in sync together, and pay attention to players who are not in the spotlight so that you can use your fantasy football money wisely. You’re out there looking for that big win, and it really can be as simple as following these tips!

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
