When Bradbury Robinson of St. Louis University threw an oval-shaped ball to teammate Jack Schneider in 1906, he not only completed the first forward pass in history, he created an American sensation. A century later, football is the largest spectator sport in the United States, with the Super Bowl drawing in excess of 90 million television viewers annually. As one would expect, there are quality football Web sites in every nook of cyberspace, offering everything from rules and regulations to team and player information for nearly every conceivable level of competition.

NFL Statistics and Fantasy Football Information

Although most of the major pro football sites offer at least a rudimentary look at the numbers, some of the very best sources for hardcore football statistics are smaller sites, run by devoted fans or sports betting sites.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Like beauty, the value of statistical information is in the eyes of the beholder. For football fans interested in the history of the game, traditional stats are likely to be more meaningful and more appreciated. For those who enjoy going "beyond the numbers," sites offering unique rankings or team "power" ratings may be more helpful. And fantasy football fans are probably best served by sticking to those sites that produce numbers and analysis based on a scoring system that is at least similar to the one their particular league employs.
  • The above notwithstanding, don't be afraid to cull information from different, seemingly divergent sources. Remember, in sports, things are constantly changing-whether it's rules, style of play, or the athletes themselves. Sometimes the best statistical perspective is also the broadest.
