Alright, all you fantasy footballers left in the game.
You’re surely already scouring the Internet and DVRing ESPN for any tips and tricks, and the latest player intel.
But make sure you’re giving yourself that extra advantage by tuning into Twitter.
Here are 15 must-follow Twitter accounts for fantasy football fanatics:
1. Matthew Berry: ESPN’s Senior Fantasy Analyst is a no-brainer for Twitter following. SportsGrid says he’s good for draft prep, answering fan questions and “start ‘em/sit ‘em” decisions (aren’t those the toughest?).
2. Peter King: The author of Sports Illustrated’s “Monday Morning Quarterback,” and the pub’s senior NFL writer, King knows all things NFL. His Twitter feed isn’t necessarily fantasy-specific, but is super reliable for an overall feel for that week’s major news.
3. Eric Mack: Sports Illustrated‘s fantasy analyst offers great insight into the fantasy world via curated retweets and one-on-one fan dialogue.
4. Brad Evans: Award-winning Yahoo! Sports columnist, Fantasy Football Live/YES contributor, Freak Show host on YSR, bracketologist, 2012 AL-LABR champ and CEO of TEAM HUEVOS. What else do you need to know?
5. Ian Rapoport: Another must-follow, Rapoport is the author of now-defunct The Rap Sheet blog and an NFL.com reporter. The guy knows his stuff.
6. Nathan Zegura: This senior writer for CBS’ Fantasy Football Today and SiriusXM Fantasy Consultant offers lots of helpful player rankings and real-time fan advice.
7. Christopher Harris: Harris is a fantasy analyst for ESPN and the author of Slotback Rhapsody, a novel about football. So you know his tweets are well-written. Also be sure to drop into his Thursday morning chats on ESPN.com.
8. Stephania Bell: ESPN’s injury analyst, Stephania Bell provides a Twitter feed of info that is, as SportsGrid puts it, a “who’s who of injured athletes. Consult her feed on game day to see who needs to be benched.”
9. Evan Silva: A senior NFL Editor for Rotoworld and writer for NBC Sports, Silva’s Twitter feed is a true fantasy info goldmine.
10. Rotoworld Football: Get all the top fantasy football headlines from Rotoworld.com and just read, or favorite for later, the ones that are relevant to your team.
11. NFL Fantasy Football: Might as well get it straight from the source. Follow NFL Fantasy Football for the latest and greatest on fantasy.
12. Jim Day: Tweet “Fantasy Taz” any question you have and you’re likely to come back with an expert opinion (dude’s sent almost 37,000 tweets).
13. Adam Schefter: He’s a beast. ESPN NFL Insider Schefter, with more than 1.9 million followers, is a fantasy football expert by trade (so to speak). Follow him for breaking news and valuable intel from industry insiders.
14. Chris Mortensen: This ESPN Senior NFL Analyst is great for hard facts, more than personal opinions. Sometimes – or even most of the time – that’s what you need.
15. Eric Karabell: ESPN’s most senior fantasy writer delivers on the fantasy facts. Don’t judge him for his lack of a Twitter background and cover image.
