1. NFL Fantasy Football
This first choice shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone. NFL is everything football, and the company has a killer app that follows suit. Begin by creating a league, finding a league or participating in a mock draft. The draft works like it does anywhere else, you’re randomly assigned a number so you can begin searching for and choosing your players. You can also use the chat function to communicate with the others in your league and look at all of the draft activity.
DraftKings is for those who don’t have a league waiting they want to join but want to make a few bucks. Here a player injury can’t ruin your entire season, because every day is a new game. Begin by setting your team, then go on and join any battle you want to. The app has head-to-head challenges, mini private leagues and games for beginners. Do better than everyone around you and you can even win some money. Play free or paid games and always be entered to win the grand prize of a million dollars.
The ESPN Fantasy App has the typical fantasy components. You can create a league, start a team, make trades and compete with your friends all from the app. The thing it can offer that other similar apps can’t is it has offer football news. Get notified when your quarterback tweaks his knee or your running back is having problems with his elbow. If you can get the information before the other people in your draft you’ll have a leg up.
In the age of Google, Yahoo seems like a thing of the past, but something that many don’t know is it has a really complete fantasy sports platform. Download the app and you can start manage your team from anywhere. The best thing is, you can log in on your computer at work, and check up on things then make trades on your train ride home from your phone. The app caught onto what Draft Kings was doing and added the ability to make money on your teams. Join paid challenges and make a few extra dollars.
I said it above but I will say it again, while playing fantasy, information is your greatest weapon. If someone asks you to make a trade and you know that player just injured his elbow, you have a huge advantage. Scroll through all the NFL headlines or search for a specific player to see the latest news. If you want notifications on your favorite players, you will have to pay to get an account with the app, but the information provided in the free version is exactly what you’ll need.
