While we all eagerly anticipate the kickoff to the NFL season, it also marks a very important time that’s near and dear to all of our hearts: The start of fantasy football. While it can be difficult to catch every piece of football news that passes through the wire, luckily, if you follow these 10 Twitter accounts, you likely won’t miss a beat.
Perhaps the most well-known fantasy writer on the internets, Matthew Berry is ESPN’s roto point man. When the NFL season rolls around, his TV and radio appearances go up, as does his Twitter usage. Good for draft prep, answering fan questions, and start ‘em/sit ‘em.
The author of Sports Illustrated’s “Monday Morning Quarterback,” King is very knowledgeable on all things NFL. While the insight on his Twitter won’t be as fantasy specific, there’s plenty of good football nuggets to be gleaned from his weekly MMQB column. Good for an overall feel for that week’s major storylines.
Another Sports Illustrated guy, Mack is a fantasy columnist who’s Twitter is packed with useful fantasy info. Tons of retweets to keep you apprised of the latest injury news, and some good insight from Mack himself along the way.
A writer for Roto Experts, Ciely is currently making the Twitter transition from baseball to football, so don’t be surprised to not see an NFL-packed feed quite yet. That will soon change. Ciely has quality fantasy insight, and answers tons of specific fan questions.
Evans can be seen regularly on Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football Live, but when he’s not doing that, he’s producing great fantasy football content for Yahoo! His stuff is definitely worth reading, and following his Twitter will integrate that content into your timeline. This account is also especially good for injury updates.
Whatever fantasy content Yahoo! Sports is producing, expect to see it on this handle. Basically just a collection of all of the sites’ posts, but, nevertheless, a great account to follow. You’re certainly not going to miss anything here (but expect a lot of links). Maybe not the quickest source for fantasy info, but it covers all your bases — a good way to get back in the loop if real life has been distracting you from what’s really important for a few hours.
A senior writer for CBS’ Fantasy Football Today, and an especially good follow if you haven’t done your draft yet. Lots of rankings on this feed, which also comes in handy for start ‘em/sit ‘em conundrums.
Harris may not get as much notoriety over at ESPN because of Matthew Berry, but the fantasy analyst has plenty of good info on his Twitter, and answers many a fan question – if you’re considering a trade, it would be in your best interest to tweet at him for his take. Also the funniest tweeter on this list, which is a bonus.
This is my big sleeper account on the list. If anyone, and I mean anyone gets hurt, expect to see the news on Bell’s account. The resident injury analyst at ESPN, Bell’s Twitter feed is who’s who of injured athletes. Consult her feed on game day to see who needs to be benched.
Silva writes for a bunch of football websites, and his Twitter is jam-packed with useful fantasy info. Tons of great under the radar info, and a true football (and fantasy) aficionado.
