Website Review: Paper

Fantasy sports is a multi-billion dollar annual business. Almost any major sports outlet (ESPN, Fox Sports, CBS Sports, etc.) has their hand in that pot. is a new website that takes fantasy sports a slightly different direction. This is my review of the site, in some of what I think are the most important categories

1. Ease of Registration: A+
It is easy to register on the site, all you need is an email address and then you create a user name and a password. Those things are standard, but many of the bigger sites offer newsletters that you have to opt out of receiving if you don't want your inbox somewhat flooded on a weekly basis. Paper Sports has none of that email clutter.

2. Payment Options-B+ offers not only credit card options to fund your account, which is also standard, but if you have a PayPal account you can fund your account with that as well. I don't know of another site that offers PayPal as an option for payment.

3. Variety Of Games Available To Play-A
Fantasy college football is growing, and Papersports offers it. That could be a tremendous competitive advantage, as CBS is the only site I am aware of that offers fantasy college football. MLB, NFL and NBA are also available on the site.

4. Customizable And Unique Options-A
Paper Sports allows the user to create tournaments with multiple team number options, where you can choose the buy-in amount, who to invite to participate, etc. Users can also join open tournaments. Users can also customize the duration of a tournament, to include making a tournament as short as one-day for baseball and basketball.

5. Odds Of Winning-B+
The site allows you to know how many people you are competing against and how much money you can win. Therefore, your odds of winning go up as opposed to the national contests the bigger sites offer.
