Plans for 2012

Are you here looking for my fantasy football content? I have joined 4for4.com full-time starting this season, so all of my analysis, projections and rankings will be hosted there. I think I’ve found a home at 4for4, and I intend to be there for the foreseeable future.

Here is an up-to-date list of all of my articles, including reaction to free agency and the draft, along with profiles of Robert Meachem and Brandon LaFell, and I’m just getting started. The content is completely free for now.

Please note that my award-winning rankings — FantasyPros In-season (#1 in 2010 & #2 in 2011) and FFLibrarian/FSTA Preseason (#1 in 2011) — will no longer be freely available. I am taking over the projections/rankings process at 4for4, so my rankings will be over there, behind an affordable subscription wall. I wish I could continue to provide my rankings for free, but unfortunately clicks don’t pay the bills.

A subscription to 4for4 is $29.95 for the entire 2012 season.

If you’ve utilized my rankings in the past but can’t afford the subscription, I understand. If you decide to subscribe, please know that I do appreciate it. Once again, I’ll be giving first Q&A priority to those that subscribe by clicking any of the 4for4 links in this post or the 4for4 banner to the right. Just send me an email (using the icon on the right sidebar) with your name and I’ll try to answer your questions as best I can.

Thanks again for your support.

A new Q&A policy

It is not without some trepidation and remorse that I’m adopting a new Q&A policy for the remainder of the 2011 fantasy football season. As my workload is ramping up, I can only answer so many questions in any given week and I’m going to give first priority to those readers who have used my referral links to subscribe at 4for4.com.

When I was writing for The Scores Report, one of my most popular posts was the weekly Q&A where I would take the time to read and answer just about every question that my readers had. The process ate up a lot of time, and now that I’m working for 4for4 on an hourly basis, I just can’t devote that much time to Q&A.

However, I will try to answer questions from those 4for4 subscribers that were referred there by me, because I do get a percentage of each of those subscriptions. I can’t guarantee that I will get to every question every week, but whatever free time I do have will be spent on subscribers, not on random questions from random people. It is my way of saying thank you to those readers who are willing to support my work.

At this point, I am planning to keep FantasyShrink relatively ad-free and there is quite a bit of free content (including my rankings) that will continue to be hosted here. I hope that is enough for those of you who are not willing to subscribe.

If you’ve already used my referral links to subscribe at 4for4, please shoot me an email (by hitting the mail button on the right sidebar) and give me your name and location so I can check my subscriber list. If you plan to ask questions on Twitter, please include your handle so that I can recognize you. Like I said, I may not get to every question every week, but I will give subscribers first priority.

For those readers who haven’t yet subscribed at 4for4.com, please consider doing so. It’s only $29.95 $22.95 for the season and there are a lot of great things going on over there. In the past few weeks, Josh Moore (who finished #4 in the FantasyPros accuracy challenge) and I have revamped the customized Top 200 value rankings and auction cheatsheets, built the ADP Draft Planner, and I have written several articles including QBBC, DTBC, value RBs, value WRs, sleeper WRs and more. During the season, I’ll be publishing my waiver picks, Defensive Team By Waiver Wire (DTBWW), injury recaps and a RBBC Report on a weekly basis. If you’d like to join, use any of the links in this post or hit the 4for4 ad on the right sidebar.

If you’re a relative newbie and not familiar with my work, be sure to check out the Member Reviews tab on my profile at FantasyPros.

Again, I’d rather not have to adopt this policy, but it’s a simple matter of weekly bandwidth, and there just isn’t enough time to field all the questions that come my way.

As always, thanks for your support. It is appreciated.
