Yahoo! Scores a Touchdown With Mobile 2010 Fantasy Football

It’s that time of year, when some of the most avid sports fans do their research, draft their teams, and match up head-to-head every week.

Of course, the game I’m talking about is Fantasy Football! And this year, when you need Fantasy Football on the go in the US and Canada, Yahoo! has you covered — across iPhone, Android, mobile Web platforms  — for FREE.

Yahoo! Sports has been the fantasy sports industry leader for several years. Building on our highly successful mobile website and iPhone app from last season, we have expanded our lineup and made a lot of improvements based on user feedback. Most noticeable is that we are launching our first-ever Fantasy Football app for Android today.  We’re really excited for you to try out the app, as it has everything the iPhone app had last year, plus more.

Some of the functionality you’ll see across the three experiences includes the ability to:

  • View real-time Fantasy matchup scoring.
  • Manage your roster.
  • View player stats and news.
  • Get in-app alerts when you have a player with an injury or on a bye week.
  • View Fantasy Football videos.
  • Experience a brand new-design with an enhanced look and feel.

To get to the best mobile experience for your phone, do one of the following:

  • If you have an iPhone or Android device, go to the App Store or App World, respectively, and search for Yahoo!. You’ll see Fantasy Football ’10 listed in the results, along with our other popular Yahoo! apps.
  • If you have any other mobile device, direct your mobile browser to m.yahoo.com/fantasyfootball.

We really hope you love the product this year, and wish you the best in dominating your league!

It’s disgraceful that Yahoo has discontinued supporting a real app for Blackberry phones like it had last year. Instead, last year’s quality app was replaced with a web launcher — a glorified bookmark. Every other major fantasy provider (CBS, FOX, ESPN) has a Blackbery app. Yahoo really dropped the ball on this one.

I love your iphone app, and used it al last year, but this year’s app is not properly updating the scores on matchup and after the game.. I choose any individual player and his stats are all zeroed out… please check this out and fix.. thx!

Will there be one for fantasy hockey as well? I don’t do baseball or football and I am sure it wouldn’t be that hard for them to produce one for hockey also?

Allow commish trade approval on the phone

Why not release this app for UK iPhone users? There’s a lot of us playing fantasy gridiron, and the web version is a bit dull.

Pretty good app, Nearly my entire league is using it. I’d like the app to have communication features: smacktalk, commissioner messages, league-wide posts. Also would like to see players’ jersey numbers posted somewhere for reference.

Would be a perfect app if only you could trade proposals. I’m sure they will add that soon…
