Why Should You Become a Footballguys Insider And Start Dominating Your League?
1. PROVEN TRACK RECORD OF RESULTS
Every site claims self appointed "gurus" or "experts". That's nice. Footballguys claims a proven track record of subscribers dominating their leagues. Whether it's the high stakes contests like NFFC or FFPC, National Contests from ESPN or local leagues around the world, Footballguys subscribers dominate their leagues. We're more than happy to compare records for our Footballguys Staffers competing in Experts Leagues. We also love to point to the National stat forecasting contests like the Fantasy Index Experts Poll where Footballguys has two of the top five spots on their ALL TIME Leaderboard. That's all well and good. But we realize that you're infinitely more concerned about how YOU fare in YOUR league than how we do in ours. That's why what we're really proud of is that our customers dominate THEIR leagues.
2. BECAUSE TIME EQUALS MONEY
Our paid staff of 40+ Football Writers spend much of their time sorting through the mountain of NFL related information that is generated every day. What they look for are the proverbial "needles" of relevant information in the "haystack" of content that's out there. Could you do this on your own? It's possible. The internet is an amazing source of information. But you'd need to have approximately 400 hours per week to spend in front of a computer and on the phone to approach the level of information we bring. Most of our customers don't have that kind of free time. They'll let us do the legwork and bring them the info. Much like the President of a company has his subordinates gather and bring him the important information he needs to make a decision. Footballguys.com won't run your team for you. But we will bring you the tools and information you need to make the best decisions you possibly can as you run your team. You don't have to spend your every waking hour searching for info to know all you need to know. Let us bring it to you so you'll have time for other things - like a life maybe?...
3. UNBEATABLE VALUE
In this day of clipboard carrying backup QBs pulling down 7 figure salaries, we're proud to offer what we think is the best value in sports sending our customers incredible amounts of information for $24.95. In 2011, we brought our readers over 50,000 pages of information and analysis.
At $28.95 for the year, that works out to about 1/20th of one penny per page.
To be blunt, we want to provide such an avalanche of information that our customers laugh out loud when they consider the question, "Is it worth 29 dollars?" For the price of a couple of pizzas and a six pack, you could be destroying your league.
4. MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
How confident are we that you'll be happy with your purchase? Enough that we offer any customer the option to cancel their subscription and receive a refund up until September 30, 2012. If you're not happy with our service, we'll give you your money back. It's that simple. How's that for putting your money where your mouth is?
5. BREAKING NEWS EMAIL UPDATES
One of the features subscribers continually tell us is the most useful is our Breaking News Email Updates. When you have our staff of 40+ guys, plus a network of thousands of contacts across the country, it's a fantastic "grapevine" for obtaining news and insights. When the local radio announces Peyton Manning tweaked a hamstring in practice 10 minutes ago, you'll know about it with a Footballguys Breaking News Email. It's like being plugged into the world's best information network. Our readers will consistently be aware of breaking news.
6. SUBSCRIBER CONTEST
Match your wits against fellow Footballguys Insiders for a chance at over $35,000 in prizes. Each subscriber gets one entry into this skill-based contest. Lots of contests out there don't offer $35,000 in prizes even with entry fees as high as $300 per team. And all you get with them is a contest and nothing else. We have the best contest and it's 100% free to subscribers. Plus you get 50,000 + pages of Footballguys Insider content. Now that's value.
7. THE BEST TOOLS
Footballguys.com continually leads the pack in the development of tools and applications to help with your fantasy draft and with the subsequent management of your roster. We introduced Value Based Drafting to the Football world back in 1996 and Footballguys was the first to create a Value-Based Drafting Excel Application. We've continually refined the model to include IDP, Flex Positions and Auction Support. Footballguys has completely changed the drafting game with the Draft Dominator. It's heads and shoulders above any drafting tool on the market and it's only available here. Then we introduced the Lineup Dominator and Projections Dominator which are also "Best of Class" applications. In 2009, we unveiled our Rate My Team application and it continues to shine. In 2010, we introduced FBG Mobile. We lead. They follow. We think it's better to lead.
8. THE BEST FEATURES
You won't find "fluff" features. What you will find are the Tools and Analysis you need to win. Here are just a few of the many weekly features we'll offer. You can see an entire list by clicking on the link at the top of this page showing all our content from the 2011 season.
Offensive and Defensive Upgrades and Downgrades / Waiver Report: Every Monday, we'll hit the players you need to keep an eye on for Free Agent pickups as well as the players who you should deal. We'll also factor in upcoming schedules.
Game Recaps: Don't have Direct TV's Sunday Ticket and 8 televisions? No problem. We have Staff assigned to every game analyzing every play. Monday we'll post a detailed recap taken from the Fantasy Football Angle (not the generic recap you get in the press). We tell you What You Need to Know about each game and What you Ought To Know. We pass along things like near misses, goalline opportunities, and TDs nullified by penalty to give you the real picture.
Injury Recaps: Monday Night, we'll run down the news as to how Sunday's injuries are progressing after the doctors have done their work.
Stats, Stats and More Stats: FBG readers are covered with statistics that are updated each week as the season progresses. From matchups, to Fantasy Points Per Game to Targets to Red Zone touches, if you need the numbers, we've got them.
Random Shots: OK. This may be a "fluff" feature. We take a break from the deep thinking and hit the really important topics. Like why the Ravens still have male cheerleaders...
Schedule Strength and Outlook: Many games are decided by matchups and few things are more important there than schedule strength. So you can stay three steps ahead of the competition, we keep a running look at who's facing a creampuff defense and who's going against tough units.
Top 200 Lists: Trades are a key part of any team's success so we continue to update our Top 200 players list based on upcoming schedule and current situations. It's a quick hit snapshot of where the key players are valued at that point going forward.
Game Predictor: Using some of the most accurate forecasting tools available, we tell you what will happen and why each week. Uncannily accurate.
Rushing and Passing Matchups to Avoid / Exploit: We take every team in every game and break down the matchups for both rushing and passing. Knowing who to start and why based on the matchups can make the difference in winning and losing.
Player Projections: We give you detailed projected statistics for every player of note in the upcoming game. We hang our reputation on the line every week to help give you the most accurate and detailed projections possible. These are updated approximately 15 times during the week including 4 to 5 updates on Sunday morning
Custom Cheatsheets: Driven by the Player Projections, we create custom cheatsheets for every position to help answer that all important question of who to start.
Players in the News: Updated throughout the week, we give you quick capsules of every player that's made any sort of news that week even if it's just a missed practice. Then we keep you updated as to his status.
9. SORTABLE EVERYTHING
Too many websites offer their information in a format that's not much different than what you'd read in a newspaper. Lots of words and tables. And all you can do is look at them. The only difference is that it's harder to read a monitor than it is a piece of paper in your hands. With Footballguys, we harness the power of the internet to make these charts and numbers work for you. Want to view the Running backs by Red Zone Touches? One click away. How about WRs by how many times they were targeted? One click away. Instead of static pages that can't be manipulated, we give you features that you can twist and turn to make them work for you in ways that you want to see.
10. PROFESSIONAL OWNERSHIP
Footballguys.com isn't a "hobby" for us. It's a serious business run by serious people. Joe Bryant and David Dodds own Footballguys.com. Both are 48 years old. Aside from being heavily involved in Fantasy Sports since the late 1980's, Joe and David have a long history of business experience. Joe's a graduate of Texas A&M and since 1990 has owned Bryant Boats, a boat manufacturing company. David's a graduate of the University of Southern California and supervised hands on maintenance, repair and testing for the U.S. Navy's Standard and Tomahawk Missiles at Seal Beach California before leaving that profession to devote his efforts full time to Footballguys. General Manager, Clayton Gray is a graduate of the University of Central Arkansas and was a High School Mathematics teacher before joining Footballguys full time. All of our Staff and Writers are paid professionals. With so much marginal information available on the internet, we feel it's crucial to provide our readers material of the highest quality. And quite simply, it takes quality people to do that.
11. PROFESSIONAL STAFF
With a paid staff of 40+ hardcore Football writers and news hounds under contract, we'll put our Staff up against anyone's. Our Staff boasts the founders of several prominent fantasy football sites such as Cheatsheets.net, MrFootball.com, FantasyAdvantage.com, Pro-football-reference.com, TuffSports.com and Red Eye Sports.

12. PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE
When we designed our site, we asked ourselves what we would want in a website for ourselves. Footballguys.com is what we came up with. Sure we like to have fun, but we're well aware you'll go to the Comedy Channel (or Sportscenter, sadly) if you want comedy. When you want Hardcore Football Information and Tools, we have what you want. We make our material as professional and easy to access as possible. All our content will always be "Safe For Work".
