One of the great things about FantasySports.org is that we’re going to do Fantasy website reviews, where we hope to introduce you to sites you might not have known about, or tools on those sites you didn’t know existed. Today, we’re going to talk about FantasyRundown.com, which finds the best Fantasy Baseball and Football articles on the web.
What’s this Fantasy website all about?
The Goose finds the most relevant and helpful Fantasy articles every day – multiple times a day.
When you first arrive at the site, you’ll see just four dropdowns to choose from, making navigation relatively simple, and there are just three skyscraper banner ads. That means the site is clean, fast and unobtrusive.
Fantasy Baseball is up top, until the football season hits, I imagine. Every day, Goose scans all of his feeds to find the best articles. When I say scans, I actually means – he goes to the article to make sure it’s helpful, readable and entertaining. That means – he’s not sending you to crap.
His links aren’t just naked links. He explains what the article is about and what you should expect to see.
There’s also a module on the right with his Twitter feed, so you can follow his daily thoughts.
From prospect news to updated rankings to team previews and everything in between, he links to nearly everything in the Fantasy Sports world – every day! The past two days are always on the home page, with the individual archived sections going back two months.
Highlights: Favorite parts of this Fantasy website
Obviously, this is a great spot to catch up on great Fantasy articles, but he also has an awesome collection of updated Fantasy rankings. On the football side, they have links to the individual positions on over 40 Fantasy websites.
On their Fantasy Football home page, he has links to Fantasy podcasts, Internet radio shows, depth charts and Twitter feeds for NFL beat writers.
Wish List: Things this Fantasy website should add
One thing I know about Goose – he’s not a fan of posting links to mock drafts on his site because he just doesn’t believe they are as helpful as people think. He’s probably right about that, as he said that there are so many different possibilities after every pick, it’s not helpful for most owners.
With that said, Fantasy Rundown does have a module on their Fantasy Football home page that has links to several different spots for mock draft data from FantasyFootballCalculator.com.
Summary: Who benefits from using this Fantasy website?
Everyone benefits from this site, since it has something for everyone in the article links.
Beginners can learn about different strategies, and veterans can get links to deep, well-thought out articles that target a specific method.
You might get links to dynasty rankings in the morning, and yearly leagues in the afternoon, as well as links to an article about what to expect from Matt Forte in 2013.
You can go to their link archive and hit control-F to search any player to see what latest articles highlighted him. I just typed in “Gronkowski” and found that 16 articles were linked off from here since May 13. Type in “rookie” to see that 58 articles were linked out. Type in “keeper” to find 16 articles about these types of leagues.
There’s something to love for everyone on one of the more in-touch Fantasy websites out there. We’ll continue to review Fantasy websites throughout the year, so check back each week!
