  5. Site specific ADP data – Included from every site and high stakes contest to provide the most accurate draft advice for any site or contest you play.

But RotoPass is able to offer the exact same subscription for all of these sites for just $65. It’s a tremendous savings for the user, obviously and with no loss of content or experience.  (A subscription to FootballGuys via RotoPass is the exact same as a subscription to FootballGuys directly, for example).
With a single sign on at RotoPass.com, users are immediately authenticated and “past the paywall” on all the sites in the Pass. So, in addition to a bargain, there is also ease of use for this tool for users.
It’s certainly unique, as there is no other tool that allows you access to multiple content sites in a single click.
But finally, the content. The collection of sites in RotoPass.com are among the most awarDed, lauded and popular in all of fantasy football. Your competitor may have access to one site, or even two, but he/she doesn’t have access to 7! Putting all of this amazing content/tools/alerts/apps and more right at customers fingertips, one click away, is what makes RotoPass a winning tool in fantasy.
