Free Alternative to Yahoo StatTracker

submit to reddit

It can be addictive to track live game stats on a Sunday during football season. When you're in multiple leagues, nearly every play counts for or against you.

While most league hosting websites offer free live stats, Yahoo still charges for them with their StatTracker product.

Fortunately, if you don't feel like paying for live stats, there is an alternative. It is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox called Yahoo Fantasy Football Free Stats. This is part of a screen shot from my team yesterday using the Free Stats program:

The upside is that it's free. The downside is that it doesn't calculate fantasy points. It just displays raw stats. That's one big advantage StatTracker has. Still, it's better than clicking on every game score within your team list and searching for their stats.

To use this program, you need Firefox with the Greasemonkey add-on installed. This program is not supported by Yahoo (or Fantasy Football Calculator).

If you're a Firefox user who has decided not to buy StatTracker, give this program a try. It's guaranteed to save you time every Sunday.
