Welcome to the Fantasy Cafe
For anything fantasy sports, you have come to the right place! The Fantasy Cafe main site is where it all comes together: hang out and relax in the main hall, or take a seat in one of our more specialized wings. There is a Cafe for Fantasy Football, Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Basketball, and Fantasy Hockey.
Regardless of which corner of the Cafe you end up in, you will hopefully find it to be an easy-going and friendly place, where you can talk in a relaxed atmosphere, or simply pick up the information you need. Fantasy-wise, our menu includes Cheat Sheets, a nice selection of Sleepers, fresh Articles, Links to other fantasy sports resources, and a truckload of free games which you can find on the various subsites.
Forgot your wallet? No worries, we will not make you wash the dishes - everything on the Cafe's menu is absolutely free (free, but not for nothing). Just keep in mind that, as a community, the Cafe thrives from the efforts made by its members, so if you want to roll up your sleeves and help make the Cafe an even better place, you are always welcome. Enjoy the Cafe!

What is one of fantasy owners’ worst nightmares? Marlins manager Mike Redmond offered insight when answering a question about who his closer was. “We’re going to use everybody,” Redmond said, according to the Palm Beach Post. “We’re going to use (Steve) Cishek. We’ll use (Chad) Qualls. We haven’t had that many save opportunities. We need those guys to pitch. We need Cishek to go down there and log some innings. He’s still going to close games. Qualls might close some games. (Mike) Dunn might close some games. We need these guys to pitch we need them to stay sharp. They’re all going to contribute.” [More]
As I sit on the couch post-NFL Draft, my mind starts to really get geared up for the upcoming fantasy drafts. Interestingly, I am already starting to see some players that I like more and less than the national pundits in the rookie draft class. So I figured it’s probably time to start going out on some limbs and talk about my early thoughts. Today’s article is going to highlight three players I am much higher on than most, and three players I am starting to realize I will not own because I don’t like them as much as others. I will now put a big asterisk next to this column; I reserve the right to change my mind as we learn more about camp competitions, injuries, etc. [More]

We got together 12 of the Cafe’s finest veterans for this mock draft and produced some excellent results during the past three weeks. This year the pack has broken up a bit, and there is much more debate about where to rank players below the upper tier. Do you draft the player who broke out last season, or do you go for the player who had a disappointing year but is due to bounce back? These veterans will help you answer your questions with pick-by-pick analysis and commentary. Here are the results, enjoy! [More]

Do you know who has the second-best save percentage in the NHL right now? It’s not Luongo or Brodeur, but the Atlanta Trashers’ Johan Hedburg instead at .933 in 13 games, starting for what I think is one of the worst defensive (and best offensive) teams in the league. Hedburg is 7-3 this season and is tied for fifth in the league with a 2.15 GAA. As Kari Lehtonen remains out and has not resumed skating, Hedburg is competing for the job with a goalie 14 years his junior, Ondrej Pavelec. Pavelec has allowed three or more goals in 10 of his past 13 appearances and four or more in seven of those games. [More]
