FSB Daily 6/12: Athlon, WSJ, Yahoo!, MFL-FanDraft

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- Now this is interesting: Athlon Sports just launched this week a premium league-hosting option that allows users to combine college and NFL players in the same pool. FSB.com will have the scoop as soon as we get a chance to talk to the folks involved.

- The Wall Street Journal recently presented a fairly extensive writeup on the fantasy implications of the just-started World Cup, as well as the pitfalls of fitting soccer into a successful fantasy format.

- Yahoo! gets into detail about its new fantasy sports API and YQL tables via its Developer Network Blog. I’d try to sum it up or pick out highlights here if I were a bit smarter.

- MyFantasyLeague.com has partnered with FanDraft, allowing those who purchase the latter’s draft software to easily import results into MFL and save $20 off the MFL league-creation fee.
