What fantasy website do you use?

I'm looking to set up a keeper league and I wanted some input on different site options.

Much appreciated.

Sportsline is the best, but they charge. It is worth the money though.

yeah, I use sportsline and love it. Yahoo just put in a new keeper feature, though I'm not sure exactly how it works. Also, no auctions.

I've heard good things about Sportsline*, but I'm a devotee of Yahoo (my keeper leaguemates are cheap bastards and I can't imagine us being able to move to a $ service). Then again, my primary league likes to manage our drafts ourselves, offline - so I/we haven't been bothered by the lack of keeper/auction functionality.

*but, admittedly, only from Grey. And he may be getting oversized, gameshow-style checks from CBS.

Not sure exactly how it works, but one of my hockey leagues is using it. Basically guys just get designated as keepers, and then (I assume) automatically rolled over onto next year's team. As far as I can tell, only the commish can designate keepers, though I might be wrong.

All of my continuing leagues use Yahoo, and we keep track of keepers on a "Yahoo Group." For the auction league, we do our draft on the message board (so it takes about a month and a half--it's the best time of the year), and for the snake draft leagues, we move our keepers to the top of the autodraft list in case we miss the live draft, and then we pick our keepers for the first four rounds and then precede like normal.

An online auction draft tool would be fantastic.

I hear ESPN is rolling a free one out for this season.
