FSB Daily 6/12: Loyalty Survey, Fantasy Ethos, RotoWire, Random Bits

Friday, June 12th, 2009

A roundup of recent posts on the FSB News page.

- An apparent doctoral candidate at the University of Northern Colorado says he is seeking participants for a survey of how loyal fantasy players are to their primary commissioner outlets. The form does have spaces for name and e-mail address at the end for purposes of entering a drawing, but the survey can be completed anonymously (leaving those spaces blank).

- Derrick Eckardt, who founded and ran RotoNation up until the end of last year, has resurfaced in the fantasy sports arena with his own new site, FantasyEthos.com. The initial post showed up on June 1. Welcome back, Derrick.

- iLogon — which bundles sites and applications and sells access to users — has reached a deal with Roto Sports that adds RotoWire.com to its package.

- This Bleacher Report contributor says the Saints have the league’s best fantasy roster, with Arizona, Houston, Atlanta and New England rounding out his top five. What do you think?

- Now that MLB’s top overall draft pick, Stephen Strasburg, is finally an official member of the Washington Nationals’ organization, USA Today’s Steve Gardner surveys a bit of the early opinion on the young hurler.

- ESPN has finally announced formally the addition of former NFL Network and NFL.com reporter Adam Schefter, a pending move that has been known publicly for a while. Schefter’s Sunday morning reports on NFL Network added quite a bit of value to the network’s pregame show for fantasy players last season and will be tough to replace in 2009.
