    Default Source for last minute info

    I was burned last night with a winning entry that had a player that was a last minute scratch. Could have missed out on a good payout. I usually check rotoworld and my line-ups just prior to puck drop, but neither made mention of the scratch. Is there a site/source where I can reliably find last minute info like this? Thank you.

    Search the player's last name on twitter and adjust the search results to show most recent tweets. Beat writers always tweet that stuff out as soon as they hear.

    Sometimes there's nothing you can do and players sit. Twitter is usually the best spot to find the most up to date information.

    As EB says, Twitter usually has solid feeds. Ironically, Yahoo has been reliable in regards to starting lineups this year. Rotoworld has been off a few times this year but I still count on their info on a given night.

    Learn to love twitter.

    Follow the insiders and some of the beat writers.
    Search player names but by subjective about the results you believe.

    Also, I'd suggest DailyFaceoff.com along with there twitter account.
    Pretty reliable.

    But not everything is always caught.
