FF Brainwave Report
The information age is in full swing and the ability to track down news is easier than ever before as twitter has helped fantasy football owners understand what is going on from the ground level at every camp around the league. Year round, NFL beat writers are working hard to report valuable analysis to provide fans with a birds eye view of what’s going on with their favorite players.
Understanding the basic concepts for success in fantasy football doesn’t take long, but as we saw with the end of the lockout, news can change at a rapid pace and even astute fantasy owners can miss on valuable info that can change the way they view a players outlook.
The FF Brainwave Report will give you some general twitters tracked down from around the web, but my mission with this report is to actually talk back and forth with beat writers from around the league, to give you information that may not be found at larger websites.
Our goal is to update this report regularly, likely turning each days work into a post, and a link to daily work can be found at the bottom of the brainwaves home page. As you will notice, I will break this report into two sections the first begin twitter interaction, and the second is other news on twitter.
The twitter interaction section is when we have a back and forth talk on twitter with one of the beat writers from a team around the league, and the other news on twitter section is when I find a notable tweet that a beat writer has posted.

If a beat writer you like not listed on the teams list, please let me know about it and I will be sure to check them out. You can also follow any of these lists, if you just want to stay updated on what local beat writers are tweeting about for your own use.
