Are you ready for some fantasy football? It’s that time of year again, and we have done the research to point you in the right direction so that you can snag that trophy and win your fantasy football league! Below you will find the best apps and podcasts to help guide your decisions throughout the season to keep your team on top.
ESPN Fantasy Football
This is the most crucial app to download to your smartphone. Not only because of its ability to provide you with a live feed of all the games, but also it sends alerts with player injury updates, so you know who to play and who to sit on the bench each week. Another fun feature is the smack talking that you can accomplish in its discussion boards and messaging capability. This app is free for Android and iOS, so you can’t go wrong there.
NFL Fantasy Football
Obviously, this app warrants a free download to your Android or iOS because it wears the name of the league in its title. This app exclusively delivers video highlights that you can not get on any other app. It’s perfect for when you’re on the go and can not experience gameday at home in your favorite recliner. With the NFL Fantasy Football app, you also get the latest and best analysis and news from NFL’s team of experts.
Yahoo Fantasy Sports
This app dominates the fantasy sports realm by hosting the most users and leagues compared to other platforms. You have access to participate in baseball, hockey, and basketball fantasy leagues through this app as well. But, since we are focusing on football here, the main thing you need to know about this app is its capability to bring you up-to-date news on all your players and access to community forums to help you make those critical decisions on gameday.
This is the only app on our list that you have to pay a small price for its download, but it will pay off big time when you win your fantasy league bringing with it bragging rights for the rest of the year. The FootballGuys app will download your league to your smartphone and provide dynamic rankings that will adjust to your roster, byes, and predicted picks. FootballGuys also staffs over sixty paid experts who founded many other fantasy league sites such as: Cheatsheets.net, Mr.Football.com, Fantasyadvantage.com, and the list goes on.
Fantasy football podcasts keep you updated with the latest news on your players, which definitely gives you the advantage when competing every week. Since being the first to be in the know is so critical in winning your league, you should take a listen to some of the following podcasts on your commute or morning jog before setting your team each week.
This podcast is hosted by Cecil Lammey and brought to us by the FootballGuys app. The Audible does an excellent job exposing potential breakout stars and help you snatch up those little known players who can put your team on top. By being well-versed in all the different scoring setting and rules for different leagues, this podcast delivers the best information for you to make a decision.
Rotoworld Football Podcast
This podcast is backed by NBC and gives access to some of its top-notch NFL analyst. Each episode is well-constructed and professional. The only con to this podcast is that at times the episodes can be a bit lengthy, so it is not for you if you are in a hurry.
