It’s been a great summer, and now football season is almost here. It’s time to get your game face on – your fantasy football game face, that is. Don’t be the laughing stock of your league because you didn’t do your research. Here are 6 free fantasy football apps for iOS and Android that might be the key to you celebrating a championship.
ESPN Fantasy Football
It’s hard to talk about sports and not mention ESPN. It offers in-the-moment sports updates from scores to breaking news. So, it makes sense that it’s also a go-to app for fantasy sports. With the ESPN Fantasy Football app, you can create a league for your friends and family to join or join a league that already exists. Take a couple practice rounds with mock drafts to get comfortable with your draft order. Once the season is underway, manage your lineup, submit waiver claims, and keep up with the latest fantasy football news all from the app.
Yahoo Fantasy Football & more
You also can’t go wrong with the Yahoo Fantasy Football & more app. No need to ever go on auto-draft – with this app, draft your players from anywhere, anytime, all from your phone. Similar to ESPN’s fantasy app, it offers the chance to run through as many mock drafts as you want. Get expert analysis and up-to-date player and team news so you don’t miss any breaking stories about injuries or contract holdouts. They also give out draft grades at the end of it, so practice makes perfect. During the season, manage your team, submit waiver claims and make trades all from the app.
NFL Fantasy Football
As the official fantasy football game of the NFL, the NFL Fantasy Football app is another way to create some competition in your friend group. Draft a roster, prepare for new head-to-head match-ups every week, and then watch as your players rack up points on the field for you. It has a great tool that allows you to compare players side-by-side so you can use your judgement of who you want on your team. Don’t let your friend beat you this week because you forgot the New England Patriots were off. Stay in the know with team and player updates from its team of Fantasy Football experts.
