Waste of money, most of them are dated by 2 months or more when they show up on the newstands. PFT is the worst, their rankings always end up so far off of what actually happens its unbelievable. You're better off sticking with the online, frequently updated draft boards and player profiles.
Technically, having a computer to read about football is a waste of money...or everything except food and shelter is a waste of money...however, it's one of my recreations to read four or five sources and compare the write-ups. For instance, can a guy be fast but slow? Quick but doesn't turn quickly? Use to love the Sporting News War Room until they changed it. ESPN Insider isn't my favorite but seems to attract a lot of attention so I subscribe.
Always love the east coast guys demonstrating they couldn't even get the names of the 49er players right. One pundit, can't remember who, wrote that the niners needed to improve their MLBs last year. With who? Zeus? Thor?
Edit: Most of the periodicals have some redeeming feature that makes them interesting!
