Because of the regular 'scouting' it requires - I believe FFL helps keep me outside of the 'bubble' that can arise when I overly focus on the Dallas Cowboys' team and players. I really think it gives me a clearer picture of Dallas' place in the current scheme of the league. JMO
Yeah, I've never met any real Cowboy fan who would come close to wanting a FFB win over the real thing. They are too different things entirely.
Also, as you said, I've found that following FFB keeps me way more in tune with what is going on a round the league, as well as how all the indiviual players are doing.
