Yahoo Fantasy Football App Review
by StevieB67 on 2016/02/09 20:57
The Yahoo NFL Fantasy Football Mobile App Review Pros: This app has many great attributes. First of all, this app makes trading and adding along with trading players quick and easy. Navigating the app is also extremely easy. Lastly, switching players in and out is is also simple and quick. Cons: Even though I have had success with this app, I have also had some problems with this app. Sometimes when I open the app, it will crash and freeze. Other times it does not show any information. The crashing, freezing and failing to show any information gets annoying, but there are a lot more positives than negatives. I have played in many fantasy football leagues over the years, and this app has been a great help. Many times, I was on a time shortage. I only had a few minutes set my fantasy football team for the week, and this app has helped me get it done. The first time I used it was a few years ago. I was on vacation in Washington with no access to a computer and a shortage of time. I was done quicker than ever. Overall, I have had a great experience with the Yahoo Fantasy Football Mobile app. It has helped me greatly with my fantasy football team. Although there are ways the app can improve, they did a great job writing this app.
Mostly great
by RobProsp on 2016/02/09 18:27
It has most basic features, understandably doesn't offer all that the website does. My one complaint is after going to a player's profile and then back to daily stats, the categories do not shift to where they should be
Terrible!
by Ilikegreen on 2016/02/09 00:27
Considering this is an app made by a tech company worth billions of dollars this is one of the worst apps I have ever used. It's so hard tryin to change players cuz trying to press the little edit button is almost impossible! Another thing is u can't get a players game log within the app, lol! What a joke! It's no surprise this company is in a downward spiral.
Best fantasy sports platforms
by ScamBoss on 2016/02/08 17:38
Far and away the gold standard of fantasy sports systems. App looks great and works well. Only thing holding this back from a 5 star review is that they daily fantasy is a little intrusive into the season long fantasy experience, even if you don't play daily. Would also like an option (in app purchase, maybe?) to remove ads.
Update flaw
by Brenden41 on 2016/02/03 21:02
App takes me to the resign page every time I open it and won't let me login. Claiming my password is wrong
Decent.. but could be better
by bizzmoneyb on 2016/01/28 13:04
this app is decent but could be better. its good for quickly setting your team lineups. the downsides are you can only access certain Commissioner tools if you run a league. it doesnt inform you of any trade proposals you may have received. you cant see any game/innings limits on positions if your league has them. your info on players is abit more limited. and i would LOVE it if they added the new "Start All Active Players" button to the app like they have on the team pages on the website. being able to set your active lineups with one click is fantastic.. but it isnt available in this app. its a useful app for quickly setting your lineups but it is not ideal for your only access to your fantasy leagues, especially if you are the Commissioner of a league. you still need go to your league and team pages through the main website for full use of everything.
wth is fantasy golf?
by FantasyGolfJaybird on 2016/01/27 15:19
Where is the fantasy golf app!!!!!!!??????? Lets go yahoo
Good app
by abg1974 on 2016/01/25 20:56
It was a good app once I figured out how things worked. Thanks Yahoo
Awesome!!
by SkeletonBoy138 on 2016/01/25 04:47
Simple and useful. Nice interface. Great to use for setting your lineup and checking scores and how your players are doing.
Fantasy app works well
by BigBaer42 on 2016/01/23 15:23
Keeps me up to date with my team and so far works very well! I would recommend it!
DFS doesn't work
by DRose3717 on 2016/01/23 01:54
It will not let me click to look at how my DFS team is doing. This makes it unusable and I'm switching to either Fanduel or Draft Kings because this app is useless until that gets fixed. What is the point of playing Fantasy if you can't look at how your team is doing?
Positive reviews
by Peter harken on 2016/01/21 21:03
Inserting positive comments here.
so fun and easy
by hello f start on 2016/01/20 04:49
I love yahoo fantasy it's the best fantasy app
App does not connect most of the time
by Sweet Brown :) on 2016/01/19 23:11
Overall the app is decent, but my problem is with the connection. More than half of the time it doesn't refresh or load for hours at a time because it says there's an error and I need to check my internet connection. Doesn't matter if I'm on or off wifi, it just doesn't connect to the Internet, meaning I can't change my lineups or do anything!!
Love it
by Marco82polo on 2016/01/19 10:00
Performs much better and more reliable.
The app WAS great.
by Prelude1218 on 2016/01/19 04:21
Player updates keep resetting to a previous date. This happens to all players, or only some. It is unpredictable.
Great fantasy app
by KING YAY!! on 2016/01/19 02:40
It is really easy to use this fantasy. Most fantasy's are confusing or you can only do it on a computer but this one you can do on your phone,it simply and awesome fantasy app! I have tried a ton of Fantasy app's but they were all to complicated or you had to do it on a computer but I don't have one. This app is so easy and I totally think you should get it!!
I'm Back
by King Shabazz God Allah on 2016/01/18 17:04
Simplicity is best. Easy to use
Yahoo daily fantasy "bonus"
by Chris Gallego on 2016/01/18 12:52
Yahoo daily fantasy "pending bonus" is BS! They hold your deposit bonus until you play. Understandable, but to pay 40 cents for every $10-15 entry?? $5 entries give me 20 cents of my own "bonus" back.... really?! Way to stick it to us Yahoo... Bad scheme to advertise a deposit bonus and force users to earn that bonus by spending more and more... What a joke.
Works awesome and easy to use
by Dxc Cahos on 2016/01/18 03:39
Works awesome and easy to use
The standard
by paulnicolas007 on 2016/01/17 17:44
As good as it gets
Love it
by So cal king on 2016/01/16 03:51
Easy to use.
Cool app
by Johnniejem2 on 2016/01/15 21:47
Alot of fun to use,Thanks
Fantasy Hockey...
by luvly_k on 2016/01/14 22:46
Fix the fantasy hockey players section on the iPad...does not show any players...only a blank page with no players information...
Daily fantasy basketball
by SuperDean00 on 2016/01/14 03:51
Everyday error. Craps out when the LA clippers play
Pretty good
by Noodlepie123 on 2016/01/13 17:52
Overall the app is cool and fun. Still a little buggy after the last update. Should add 3D Touch to iPhone 6s - 6s Plus on player stats and updates.
Need College Hockey
by Devil6dog on 2016/01/12 19:30
Great sports app but no College Hockey???? You have soccer and Tennis which no one cares about but no American College Hockey. Please get this
Everyone DL
by LuciaaC on 2016/01/12 19:21
love the latest update! Worth the DL Can't wait to use the app again for next years fantasy game
Good app
by PresidentWill on 2016/01/12 01:11
It's pretty good, guys.
Stats
by hitmanx187 on 2016/01/11 05:48
Great app. Just needs to be able to see recent game stats per player by game and not by 7, 14 week averages.
Great and accessible
by Bornim69 on 2016/01/09 06:26
Easy, fast, can make roster changes on your phone, tablet or computer. Have fun!
One Word: AWESOME‼️‼️
by Poopy butt🤗🦄 on 2016/01/04 20:16
Ok so this is like the best app EVER‼️ so I would definitely suggest it all of it seems so real and awesome so PLAY IT!! 👍🏻👍🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻😊😊
Push Notifications
by taitepackers on 2016/01/03 20:50
This app is the best fantasy football app I have used (compared to NFL and ESPN) but it would sure be nice to have working push notifications. Either I get duplicate notifications every time something happens or I don't get any. I have yet to get a notification this week and I have had several guys score touchdowns and have had two injuries. Why can't we just get working push notifications??
Wrong Time Zone! CAN'T CHANGE!
by Mr. Inspired on 2016/01/03 18:30
All of my games are on a different time zone, it is so annoying and confusing especially when you're trying to plan your matchups. Unacceptable and should be easy to fix.
3 successful years
by Martin R58 on 2016/01/03 05:06
Just finishing year 3 for NFL Fantasy Football, and will be back for year 4.
Subpar
by CKrenzel16 on 2015/12/30 23:19
They have had plenty of time to make this app quite a bit better than it is. Player searches are really archaic. Agree with the complaint below regarding the ease of leaving an accidental hole in the starting lineup. Commissioner functions are extremely difficult. Playoffs are ridiculously hard to interpret.
Need playoff bracket
by PapayaBing on 2015/12/29 21:30
This app could be better if it was easier to track standings during playoffs
Good App
by FanofNgata92 on 2015/12/29 11:56
Overall the user interface is good. Able to move players around on your roster. Makes playing fantasy sports fun.
Good improvements, but needs more.
by klassick5 on 2015/12/28 01:27
I like the updates made from last year. Would be nice to make profile changes in the app.
Most improved
by Johnny jetman on 2015/12/27 23:25
I used to hate the yahoo app in comparison to other apps for other leagues I was in. Yahoo definitely has gotten a whole lot better and easier to navigate. One thing I'd like to recommend as an improvement for next year would be a way to see the playoff bracket. Right now if you're out of it and want to check on the other games around the league, you don't have a clear picture of who's playing for what. Especially since there are exhibition games for those who didn't make the playoffs.
Won't even open
by lafergie71886 on 2015/12/27 18:38
Freezes on the Yahoo! Sports load page. Can't even get into the app...ESPN is better.
Worst app for fantasy. Get ESPN.
by Samirpsu on 2015/12/27 17:40
Been using ESPN and Yahoo for three years side by side in two leagues. This is a Legacy GUI - only long time users like this app. Can't even find a playoff bracket it waiver order on here... Data comes in small numbers surrounded by other useless data. Unless you have been using this for years, in which case you already have this app, just get ESPN. It's intuitive and adequate for a fun fantasy football experience.
App has improved over time
by Ray Eubanks on 2015/12/26 02:09
The app has improved since 2013. I am happy that I can see the point projections and match up ratings now.
Ok app. Other companies are easier
by Nswitzer1 on 2015/12/25 01:38
It's still not intuitive to adding/looking up players. It got complicated for no reason.
Best Fantasy App on the AppStore!
by Brodycoltsfan on 2015/12/24 03:56
I am a huge fantasy player and player research is vital to me. Yahoo! has lots of filters that I need and use. I play on NFL Fantasy too but I prefer yahoo! If you are looking for a great fantasy app that is easy and free, download this app right now, I love it. I play all year round sports like baseball and basketball and never have problems like I do on NFL fantasy when it crashes. Just get it, take it from a diehard fantasy fan like me👍🏻
Use espn
by Muzlimxskillz on 2015/12/23 14:27
Worst fantasy app I've used.
Great app! Don't listen to all the hate.
by PS4>Xbone on 2015/12/23 06:16
I don't really see how this app could be improved. You added the green & red bars if players are on the field or in the red zone recently so that's an awesome feature & I see nothing to complain about. I like the update notes you have with jokes about Johnny Manziel & stuff. Overall a very great app & I don't see how this could be improved upon but it probably can.
Does what it says
by Trashy Chimpo on 2015/12/23 00:53
No issues, delivers an easy to use league.
Inept
by PileOfTripe on 2015/12/22 07:34
Why when clicking on a player note, why does it try to show me their stats? Even though they didn't even play! Is it that hard to make a feature useful?? Fix this stupid "feature"! If there is a note for the player, show it!
Yahoo fantasy
by Instagramloveforever on 2015/12/21 15:36
I'm a huge fan. I've tried ESPN and it wasn't as good. Every year there are little tweaks that make it better. Keep it up.
Cheap app
by Nflfanneer on 2015/12/21 04:14
Garbage app Freeze alway
Great App!
by berty3 on 2015/12/21 01:20
Great app for Fantasy football. Easy to navigate.
ESPN is far superior...
by tryan0463 on 2015/12/20 23:50
ESPN is a far superior fantasy app. The ease of use is night and day, and I wouldn't recommend this setup to anyone. Player search is far easier with ESPN and the overall lineup portion isn't even close. I had two weeks that I left positions blank because the Yahoo app isn't clear in how they break out positions. I suggest making it easy on yourself and use the ESPN app. It will save you time and headaches.
Crash, Bang, Boom
by Blueheaven68 on 2015/12/20 22:43
Fourth time I've had to delete and re install the app in the last four weeks. Happens every time their is an update
Crash McCrasherson
by Fast Eddie 592 on 2015/12/20 22:16
Turrible
Unreliable
by PowerT2168791 on 2015/12/20 19:04
App locks up FREQUENTLY! Like almost whenever to try to touch something on the screen.
Glitchy and Confusing
by Lackjohman on 2015/12/20 05:19
As soon as you log into this app it continuously crashes and bugs out. The controls are confusing for people not very familiar with sports applications, as it does not explain features well. If you have regular access to the yahoo fantasy site on a computer I would highly recommend that as opposed to this app:
App Won't Install
by AngryFantasyOwner on 2015/12/19 18:06
Updated the app and now it won't install for the past three days. Can't access either Football or Basketball leagues
To many bugs
by Amal311 on 2015/12/18 16:14
Updates on players won't work, upon clicking on a player it opens to stats and not updates
Apple Watch doesn't work
by Warr1979 on 2015/12/18 14:42
The Apple Watch prompts me to look at my phone. What is the point of having a watch app to tell me to look at my phone it makes no sense fix it or don't have a watch app!!
Get fixed before playoffs
by Uncle Wicky on 2015/12/18 13:01
Last update never finished installing and I can't get into the app... This needs to be resolved now since the playoff are starting.
Crashes
by BD92530 on 2015/12/18 04:36
So glad you guys fixed the app from crashing every time I tried to view stats . 5 stars now
FIX THE APP
by Yamom on 2015/12/18 02:08
Last update messed the app up and caused crashing. This new update fixed the crashing BUT now it doesn't even show games. Matchup screen says no games available and roster page is the same. Get on it yahoo. Christ sake
Crashing
by sabbonizio on 2015/12/18 01:51
I'm noticing this app is crashing frequently when you click on a player in any screen.
Crashed
by JeffV1097 on 2015/12/18 01:45
Update froze mid install, now won't update or reinstall
DFS issue
by Jim Wiz on 2015/12/18 01:41
Can't click on bottommost DFS contest.
New bug
by Ftrain9807 on 2015/12/18 01:16
There's now a new bug for hockey. The info below the players that state the time at which they will play if gone. That's a decent issue especially for the goalies pleas fix it thanks. On the plus side it isn't crashing anymore for now at least.
Players not locked
by 1a1aa on 2015/12/17 21:00
I noticed that after a player played on Thursday you have the ability to drop him and get another player for Sunday. This was a player on my bench but he should have been locked after game
Worst version yet
by Masta Masten on 2015/12/17 20:53
I add a player to an empty slot on my roster and your servers decide to drop my star D man. Way to go Yahoo! Way to screw up your only useful service
Money leagues
by thatoneZkid on 2015/12/17 18:49
Yahoo!, I don't want to play in money leagues nor money league challenges. Please quit putting them on every screen I look at. I'm sure others are feeling the same.
Better than ESPN
by Mindycheese on 2015/12/17 18:05
I'm in two leagues, one yahoo and one ESPN. This app is better
TERRIBLE GLITCH
by PineappleBOOYAH on 2015/12/17 07:47
This glitch has been destroying my chances at getting wins in my basketball league. Every time I hit the stats button for a specific player, the app crashes. More people have been dealing with this so please fix this ASAP!
App crashes whenever selecting a player
by Matdg5 on 2015/12/17 04:27
Pretty self explanatory. Fix it.
Stats limitations and bug
by Appatron5000 on 2015/12/17 03:52
App crashes when looking at individual player stats. Ability to look at past indivisible stats would greatly improve this app.
Disappointing
by Jay2835-96 on 2015/12/17 02:49
Everything was all good before this new update now every time I check player's info and stats it always crashes 😐. This update was indeed a huge fumble, way to go yahoo.
Bugs

That glitch everyone else is having

Yep, same problem as everyone else with player cards. The ap is trying to do too much, menus and ads everywhere. Simplify it!
Buggy and constantly crashes

In short what the title says.
Crashes
by Timo thee on 2015/12/16 05:25
Opening player's info causes the app to instantly crash. Happens every time
Crash & Burn, Huh Mav?
by bdtphoto on 2015/12/16 05:13
Ok, just like everyone else, the app crashes when trying to view player information on a iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. That just needs fixed...not difficult. Other than that, ads? Really guys?
Seriously, Yahoo?
by Dootdootdoot1 on 2015/12/16 04:23
Like others have said, whenever you check a player's stats, the app crashes. I don't think that's how apps are supposed to work.
Force closes constantly
by Shilo221 on 2015/12/16 03:48
I have an iPhone 6S. For the last couple of weeks EVERY time I click on a player when trying to add him/look at stats and news in fantasy hockey, It crashes. The app is good for setting your current line up. That's about it.
Worst Version Yet
by MattS10 on 2015/12/16 03:44
Like so many others have stated, it crashes every time you try to view player stats.
Newest update from Dec 8 🖕
by Tony Brah on 2015/12/16 03:35
Newest update from Dec 8 is bologna. Immediately crashes when opening up individuals week-to-week stats. Also, sometimes does not update when sitting starting players. Lost first week playoffs due to this. Yahoo, I would like a reimbursement for said issues. Thanks.
Horribly Designed
by Person of life 531 on 2015/12/15 19:56
This user layout is absolutely awful, I have never had to use a fantasy layout so ridiculously complex for no reason. This app also lacks many features that other fantasy apps have standard, such as comparison of players stats side by side, and easily being to draft free agents. Never had such a letdown from a major company like yahoo. Don't use for any leagues ever, competitive or not.
Gone into hiding.
by Melilach on 2015/12/15 16:58
Ever since version 7.6, the app won't show on my iPad and I can't download it again cause it shows on my iPad!!
Beware of crashes
by SoCal LA on 2015/12/15 15:52
The app was working fine before this latest update. Now the app crashes entirely TO MUCH!!
Bad update
by Swiszy on 2015/12/15 07:39
Originally before the recent update the app imo was 5/5. But with this new update you can't open a single players info/stat without said app crashing non stop.
Best Fantasy app until recent update
by G Streds on 2015/12/15 07:20
Before the recent update Id always recommend yahoo fantasy specifically for the Mobil friendly app. Now the app closes on me constantly.. Please fix the problem!!!!
Fix this app

Garbage

by Jakesikdkdjdn on 2015/12/15 03:51
App is good but whenever I go to look at a single players stats the app freezes and closes... Please fix asap.. Thinking about joint a different league if it isn't resolved
Glitch!
by jennk55 on 2015/12/15 02:53
Fix the glitch!!! App crashes when looking at players stats! Obviously important part of app! Get it together!!!
Player cards crash the app
by geohams on 2015/12/15 02:31
"Contextual" indeed. Maybe you guys should spend more time doing stability testing instead of trying to write lame Johnny Football jokes.
Fix it!!!!
by Smoove Juice on 2015/12/15 02:20
For the last 3 or 4 days this app has been crashing when it's game time.
Can't even load the darn app
by ramenstein on 2011/10/15 19:44
U would think they would test the app before release I have iPad 2 and it won't even load I thought to wait hut week one is long gone and with week 2 around the corner you would think an update would have been released to at least fix the crashing issue but someone in their office is lagging hard... Maybe next year I'll move my fantasy leagues to other websites that have better support. Also why take functions out on a update?! That doesn't make sense even on opposite day. Wake up yahoo and give the users what they want and stop listening to whoever is make the calls on your end please... I been a long time user and this update was almost a slap in the face UPDATE: so I just got the update and strike 2!!!!! how can u release an update when you can't even load it ? I'm so annoyed right now... Just pathetic Update 2: this has to be a joke right are we getting punk'd or something there has been 2 updates since my last review and both were supposed to fix the problem of crashing on startup however still can't load the app it's come to the point where you are so mad that u can't help but laugh at the situation .... Ppl need to be fired for this sorry excuse of an app what's the point in fixing it anymore by the time yahoo gets it right well be 3/4 into the season. This is honestly my last year playing yahoo and they should be ashamed of them self that it's come to this. Take care of your users or your claim of being #1 won't last much longer!
Killed my friend's team
by 758346 on 2015/08/18 18:51
My friend just dropped Jose Reyes in baeball on accident because you player drop screen is so bad. He can't pick him back up unless he clears waiver which wont happen, so he is screwed. Also, I accidentally joined a public fantasy football league, so I am stuck with the icon on the left fore a long time, and am getting emails that I can't figure out how to disable. Thanks so much for nothing! Also, it takes forever to figure out who on other teams will start (as a pitcher) during the week, which ruins my strategy if I don't have time. Even with great wifi, the stat menu only appears a third of the time when I click on a player to see his stats. There is no way to compare the overall ranking of your team over the past, say month, the number is only for the entire season. Wait-no, you can look up your player in the list of all players, then set the time that it counts to a month, then waste another three minutes looking for him that way!! So I guess overall this is a great app, it just has some flaws that make it pretty much unusable if you want to win. If you don't care about winning and just want to be able to say that you play fantasy sports, this is the perfect app for you. If you want to win, use your mobile browser to acess the non-mobile site, where most of these flaws are at least a little better. But, maybe the latest "update" adding a button that does almost nothing fixes everything! Wait, no, it doesn't.
Better than ESPN in most ways. Worse than ESPN in others
by CaptainTugBoat on 2013/11/26 22:54
Well... I'm still learning to navigate the App, but so far I really like it. I used ESPN for fantasy football last year and loved it. Had a great time using ESPN. So, I was resistant to change. Yahoo was immediately better. Now I'm using the App... I like most of it. It's a teeny bit harder to navigate, but I think it has way more features... Plus, u can DRAFT from your phone using the app. So cool. Millions of reasons to use it. Just needs a little refinement. I bet they'll get it just right next year. I have some thoughts for them. Okay.... I started writing this review weeks and weeks ago. After having used this app for most of my season I have learned to really like it. There are a few little features that they could add to make it better, but the app functions well and allows you to do most of the things that you would like it to do. When I need some more very specific information that the app cannot provide me, I can always get onto Safari and check out the full online version of Yahoo fantasy football. So, overall I really like this app. I will definitely use it again next year. I just hope that they add projections for future weeks under players stats and other various statistics for teams and players.
Terrible app: take note Yahoo!
by Joemama619 on 2013/09/09 04:09
Last year's fantasy football app was actually pretty good. This year, Yahoo has completely changed the app and it is TERRIBLE! The worst part is it's very slow and hangs up, frequently requiring a hard reset. When I say frequently, I mean nearly every time I try to change pages or perform an action. The user interface is not nearly as user-friendly as last year. The UI is ugly and jumbled and difficult to figure out when switching between different fantasy leagues. Scrolling is horribly implemented! When scrolling down, everything appears okay, but if you need to scroll up because (for instance) you passed up a player, the menu pops up and realigns the player list. It makes whatever list you're looking at "jump around" on the screen. It would be better if the menu was always present rather than making it disappear and reappear. Also, switching up starters on the roster is poorly done. Once a player is selected that you want to start, the interface is anything but straightforward. It's not obvious as to who you have selected. And to make matters worse, some switches don't even go through! I changed my starters this morning only to realize at game-time that my changes didn't even go through! This app is a POS. Unfortunately this app is the only way to access my league while not at home. This will be the last year my friends and I use Yahoo! fantasy football unless this is resolved.
App Stinks Worst FFB APP
by Mattywheels77 on 2015/10/15 15:27
They really need an Email notification's on all trades Proposed to all members of a Leauge And a Email when a trades Excepted. So you don't have to check if a lopsided trade that is Proposed and Excepted and then you are unable to vote on it's Rejection. Instead your in the Dark and have to manually check any trades that maybe sitting there for weeks and then trade occurs and the two day acceptation voting period ends. Also if a trade is up for a week. And that week ends. The trade automatically wipes itself out after Sunday night @ Midnight because a players value may change drastically and you don't have access or happen to forget that trade is still there doesn't allow someone to accept a trade that is now lopsided due to injury or one player on either side of it's performance then makes the trade lopsided. There should also be no ability for a commissioner to take the voting option away from any trade due to it possibly being unfair in regards to a commissioner possibly favoring one player over another due to personnel dislike or relationship. There's still a waiting period for every trade regardless so why give a commissioner the ability to accept a trade for two parties and not allow a vote on it..... This app needs a ton of work compared to CBS SPORTSLINE AND ESPN. I myself wouldn't recommend it to anyone to ever use for a FFB Leauge. And also for REAL MONEY PLAY FFB. Your Bonus Option is a Scam.
To All Commissioners/League Managers...
by HI.cOnCePt on 2013/09/11 07:21
Please oh Please, do yourself and the rest of the league a favor and don't use Yahoo or switch immediately! This is my first year playing In a Yahoo league and I've never been so frustrated with an app in my life. Not only is it sloooooow, it doesn't load properly. I've turned my devices off and on, I've deleted the app and reinstalled it... 3 times, signed in and out, done everything possible to try and get it to work right... Nothin. It'll work for a minute then, then I get a blank screen, sometimes it splits the pages. (3/4 of one page on top,1/4 of another page on the bottom) Just to check my scores I'm going into my ESPN app (which is a million times better) to see what's happening with my players. With the way this app has been acting, God help us when try to make a trade and you end up with someone's kicker while they get AP from you! Haha! I've only had experience with ESPN, so I can't comment on other ones, but they absolutely give me what I need and more. No reason to switch elsewhere, absolutely flawless functionality! If you have no choice, stay near a computer before games because not if, but when this App screws up and its about kick off time, and you find out one of your starting players is OUT because he's got a paper cut on his pinky, LOL... Well, we all know what'll happen then... A BIG FAT ZER0!
Paying Attention
by Kilio51 on 2015/08/04 22:31
*UPDATE* Bug has been fixed and what you see below is no longer relevant. Thank you Yahoo Sports for paying attention :) Like most people have already said, this new update has made it much more difficult for those of us that care about fantasy sports and pay attention to day to day performances. First, taking away the easily viewable daily stats makes it extremely frustrating when monitoring players' performances. Second, I pay attention to the performances of other teams' players, so now having to go through several extra menus to get to view another team is infuriating. Third, I'm not even going to touch on the automatic roster fill button. Those of us that pay attention don't need it. Maybe this review will find itself lost in a sea of other 1-star reviews but maybe, just maybe, it may make the developers of the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app PAY ATTENTION! Listen to those of us who play and go back to the drawing board on what constitutes an "improvement." If not, we might all stop paying attention to Yahoo Fantasy Sports and find something more relevant.
Gettin' there
by jaydeedoubleyou on 2013/01/13 11:46
I'd kick in another 1/2 star on this if it were possible. The UI is solid but the apps technical characteristics as well as its overall "power" are pretty mediocre. I've found this to be mostly just useful for checking league scores and standings—if I ever needed any real league insight or managerial ability I've found myself on Bleacher Report or logging into the Yahoo desktop site 9 times out of 10. Once more tangible functionality is added I'll kick it up to four and when a level of solid stability is acquired then it'll be worthy of five. (The power outage really hurt your core consumer confidence.) Our league will be voting next preseason of whether we stick with Yahoo or move to CBS. I'm a Yahoo fan so I'm hoping you guys can pull one out and really make this relevant for 2013 and beyond. Might be worth considering a move to a new UI on the home screen utilizing a grid system as found on Flipboard, Cool Hunting, Pulse, etc. That would really open up space for navigable, pertinent and customized content for each player. This app should be an invaluable tool in fantasy league play—right now it seems more like it's just checking the box for having an app. Good luck devs! Go Hawks!
Rookie opinionated!
by La_Bala on 2014/10/26 09:04
This is my very first Fantasy Football Season and even though I might not know the ins and outs I think that every opinion is valuable. I like the app a lot, however I think a couple of things should be added. For example, the color of the match up against the team, green yellow and red, just like in the computer, so when you are doing changes on the app on the road it is easier to figure out what match up would be best to put your players on. Also, I got myself addicted to this thing so I have 4 leagues, so every time I open the app and the points have changed it is hard to tell if they went up or down and in which league, so how about updating it when the points go up color it in green and when they go down (fumble, interception) color it in red. The same for when you open a specific league, how about showing an update from the last time the league was opened in green and red when the points went up or down accordingly. I know this is rookie talk, but maybe this is thinking outside the box and with fresh eyes, and how hard can this be, so come on, get it together, man!
To late
by Defender fanatic on 2014/03/17 18:44
You just did an update today and it says this is the best update of our career. Don't you think it's a little late for that.? It's march don't you think you should of fixed it DURING FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!! Iv HAD to use this app for 5 years because yahoo is the league I'm in and this app has SUCKED EVERY YEAR and you fix it after football season then you will update it again at the start of the season and screw it up again. Yahoo is famous for doing this iv lost 3 out of 5 years just because of this app. Saying I changed my line up but did not do it. And NEVER working on Sunday and Monday night. I hope we do a different league next year because YOU have been putting the worst app in history out for 5 years in a row. If incompetence was a sport you would be in the Hall of Fame. Iv NEVER seen such incompetence in all my 47 years. And iv seen some incompetence. Trust me. I changed my server from yahoo because they are soooooo terrible. It's like you have 3 year olds working there. It's to little to late. YOU ARE PATHETIC YAHOO. And have done NOTHING for 5 years in a row to prove me and countless reviewers any different. So your UPDATE means NOTHING to us. Especially in March. Incase you didn't no football is over in February. This is March so just another stupid update from yahoo to make yourself look stupid AGAIN.
Used to be decent..now just bad
by Slipfan on 2011/09/08 23:36
What the heck happened? Seriously unreal and on the night of the NFL opener the app isn't complete. Last years version was decent. This one has a quirky UI and of course is missing vital components like drop/add ad well as almost everything else. Next year I'm convincing my league to switch from yahoo to ANYTHING else. Below is my review for last years app. Although, I haven't really utilized the app much since the season hasn't started I'm still giving this app 5 stars. I used last years app and although it wasn't perfect it definitely did the job. This years app doesn't seem all that different except it allows for real time scoring. While ESPN, part of billion dollar company, is charging $5 for their app Yahoo is giving their's away for free. So I will patronize their sponsors, check out the ads, and be thankful they aren't trying to shank me for $5 like ESPN. I realize this app doesn't have every feature available that some of the paid apps have but the UI is very smooth and I am able to make changes to my team on the fly as well as keep up on scores and my current matchup. Hopefully, yahoo will continue to improve this app with updates. So thank you Yahoo for not trying to rip us off like ESPN. you have my business for years to come.
Barely Functional and Terrible Navigation
by adambware on 2013/09/10 23:48
Scores and all data is slow to update. Navigation is jerky and NOT intuitive. Sidebar navigation is worthless and filled with yahoo garbage not even related to fantasy football. Glitch on iPhone 5 where screen doesn't reach to the bottom but the settings menu item oddly appears where it doesn't reach. The settings menu has options for push notifications but those options never load (which should be handled in apples notification settings anyway). No commissioner tools. It's almost impossible to view all of a players statistics because the side-scrolling stats conflict with swiping between players, on top of the fact that you cant even scroll through stats at the bottom of an iphone 5 for some reason. There's now a permanent banner at the top telling users to force quit if data is not loading. FIX IT, don't put this on the users. Coming from a web/app developer, a fantasy football commissioner, and a fan of yahoo fantasy football in general, this is ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC and not even worth the 1 star I'm forced to give it. Hopefully the developers or yahoo's new female CEO will get the hint that we want FUNCTIONALITY NOT A FLASHY APP WITH PRETTY COLORS. Also, the new app icon is garbage compared to the old one. FAIL!
Clunky and haphazard
by @josueMacK on 2013/09/10 01:41
I've always used Yahoo for my FF leagues. When the apps came out I jumped on the opportunity to see my league on the go. Until now I had never been let down. This version is extremely clunky. It tries to be sleek like the new look on the web version of your league home but fails miserably. I'm not having data issues like others, but I'm not pleased with the look and operation of this app. Also, when viewing live stat updates on your weekly matchups, if you're scrolling down through the screen there's no problem. However, when you go to scroll back up to see a player there are top and bottom tabs that pop-up and only allow you to see two players max. Look, while aggravating at least it works on my iPad, but my iPhone screen is MUCH smaller. When the screen jumps like that it is just extremely confusing at first, then it becomes off-putting. Fix a couple of small issues and it could be good. Remove the adds (which I've never noticed in other versions) and the Yahoo tab at the bottom of the screen (if i wanted a Yahoo app i would download one from the app store. This app should be dedicated to FF) and it could be great!
So Disappointed
by jlnvs on 2011/09/18 17:37
Another Sunday and I still can't monitor my team on wifi or 3G. The refresh spinner just keeps going. I've used this app for 3 years and this year it is simply unusable. The scores either don't update or the individual matchup page just refreshes on game day and never updates (using wifi or 3G). Sometimes the scores update but not the game clock status. The navigation is not as intuitive as in past years. For example - On the home page the "View Matchup" link should take you to your matchup - not the whole league page. The matchup pages are really hard to scroll without clicking on a player profile. And the concept of little tiny text links you click with your fingernail in an iPhone app is just silly. I also have not figured out how to add/drop players even though that was is the list of features. I also don't understand why the matchup pages show projected points for players but does not show the team total like the website does. This missing feature makes setting up your roster to ensure you have more projected points than your opponent much more difficult. The website in Safari works so much better than the native app but not nearly as convenient as a working app would be.
Yahoo doesn't seem to understand stats
by iohcnivek on 2015/09/18 08:17
The stats in all sports are terribly organized and they'll show you stats in a very strange manner. For football for instance, if you click on a player to pop up their bio card and look at the 'stats' category, it'll show you their points, then if you click on a week, it'll show you a list of stats including ones that they won't have impacts in, for example, wide receiver AJ Green isn't going to have passing TD's INT's and so forth. In baseball, it's a train wreck, if you are a real baseball fan and know about how stats work in the league, use ESPN. Yahoo will give you a player's stats from the day before, their cumulated week, and their cumulated two weeks. No 'research' stats like ESPN, or daily stats. Baseball is about the day to day player, not the weekly one... Basketball is terrible don't even try it. I don't have to explain myself, just trust me and avoid basketball on yahoo at all costs. It's a shame Yahoo's sports app is amazing but their fantasy one is so awful. Wouldn't recommend, won't come back with friends... ESPN's fantasy apps aren't very good either but yahoo's is just so bad, it's worth putting up with theirs.
Deleted it and using web for time being
by REAL HIP HOPPPPPPPPP on 2015/08/01 21:07
What's the point of having a fantasy baseball app on your phone if you can't do the one most satisfying thing in fantasy baseball, check your teams individual stats for the day.... My brain hasn't been able to process how an update as dreadful as this one got ok'd. What's even more infuriating is each day that passes in which this isn't fixed. Are the developers not paying attention to the reviews or do they just not care? Deleted the app and resorting to saving my leagues homepage safari link on my home screen until it's fixed,if ever. Yahoo you've made a convincing argument to never use you for a fantasy league ever again. Go back to your 2008 fantasy league model when everything was simple and easy to use and easy to read with out a bunch of bells and whistles causing noise on every page. The website has gotten worse and worse, and now your app is unusable, with your website close behind it. Find some developers who know fantasy sports/sports in general, because nobody who's played even just one season of fantasy anything would know to never allow something as stupid as this update to be released.
For the love of god fix this thing!
by This nickname is taken 89 on 2013/12/01 17:37
It's pretty d@#$ obvious that Yahoo! is paying no attention at all to this app anymore. I understand the fantasy season is almost over, but this thing is almost unusable in the state it's in right now. For the past month a white screen keeps popping up, & here lately it's been getting more & more constant. At times, when the white screen comes up you can just exit out of it, but other times it gets stuck on the white screen. All you can do then is reset the app & start over again with what you were doing. And hopefully you can complete your task before it does it again. This is not the only issue that has plagued Yahoo! Fantasy Football this year, but i feel it is one of the worst. And even worst is the fact that Yahoo! is doing absolutely nothing about it. I have been dealing with Yahoo's sh@#%! work with fantasy sports for a long time now. And at this point I feel like it is worth the extra cash playing on CBS Sports, to not have to deal with this crap. I'm doing great in my leagues right now, yet I am looking forward to the end of the season, more just to finally be done with Yahoo!.
Runs SO MUCH BETTER
by DJShotz on 2011/11/20 13:53
This is the best the app has been all year. I don't get logged out randomly. I don't have to keep "retrying" to connect. You can FINALLY add/drop... Only thing missing is waiver additions... If you guys just make a waiver button under "view roster" it might work best for you! Click the waiver button and see each team in the order of there waiver with a number by the team name... Then once inside on the bottom you'll see two tabs one says "List" other says "My Waviers"... Click on my waivers and you can easily see a list of waivers in the order they will occur for example click edit to change order (kind of like how you change players)... Also when you click a waiver you will see each player and they're current stats they will be spreader by putting a "Get:" section at the top and a "Drop" section at the bottom... Implement that and you are GOLDEN... shouldn't be hard since you have all the tools available already in use throughout your app
Terrible Version
by iflyfa18s on 2013/09/13 18:16
How much begging will it take to go back to the old version? Every time I open the app, I'm on a page with 2 buttons. Create/Join League & Draft Central. I'm in a league. I want to do neither. And did I mention the error "Can't connect to server. Dismiss or Retry"? It has never NOT popped up. I have a great connection, but this app can never find it. Now I did see the menu, but it asks me to sign in. When I tap it... Nothing. When I click settings, it goes to a page that just says Push Notifications. Nothing there to select. The Rate This App button seems to be the only link that works in the whole app. I've never even been able to see my team. Is it me? Am I missing something? I don't see a link to my team or anything. Is this a terrible app or can someone tell me how it works? I never had a problem with the previous versions. UPDATE: In the ongoing fiasco that is this horrible app, I found a place to provide feedback & contact tech support. The thing is, to send a question, you need to fill in a captcha. I have never gotten one wrong in my life, but after being told 15 times my response was wrong, I gave up. Worst app ever!
Frustrating
by TAvzw on 2013/09/15 04:03
I gotta say, I love Yahoo's fantasy leagues, definitely the gold standard in fantasy football for sure. But this app is pretty terrible. When it works, I really like the functionality... Checking on player status / notes is easy and roster moves are seamless... But then it just stops working. Suddenly data stops loading and all functionality is lost. I have made roster moves that appeared to save but then didn't which can be a huge problem. They have had multiple updates come out where cheeky version changes talk about how "data problems have been ejected" and "our terrible app has been upgraded to full health" or whatever, but still the data stalls exist and it can be maddening. Mostly happens when switching between leagues (I have 3) but still... When I have 5-10 minutes to dedicate to checking my teams, I probably have to restart the app 5-6 times. They actually had a banner at the top for a long time that said if your data isn't loading to restart the app. C'mon guys, you're Yahoo, and your fantasy leagues are the best there is, gotta fix this or what's the point of having an app at all?
If you only want to see your homepage…
by Cdflen on 2013/11/05 11:31
Revised review: This is the first year the app has actually worked (knock on wood). I'm not a fan of the dark background or the sensitivity when scrolling (individual player info pops up), but these are minor complaints compared to past years when it crashed constantly or never even opened. Old review: If you only want to see your homepage…this is the app for you. If you want to view points, rankings, match-ups, players, make a trade, read a players status, or the most obvious thing on a Sunday - see if you're winning - nope, not the app for you. Why is a company as huge as Yahoo! unable to EVER get it together w/their FF app? It's the same year after year. They (almost) fix it by the time the season ends, but they should be troubleshooting for months before it starts. 94.3% of everyone I know plays FF so it's not like this is a basket weaving app used by 6 grandmas! Get it together Yahoo! and I'll change my rating.
Still could use some of the features on computer
by TheGovNa on 2012/09/05 13:43
I love playing yahoo fantasy football and over the years the app has gotten better but there are a few tweaks and features holding it back from a 5 star rating. First the app works fine for setting your team and making trades, picking up new players and tracking game day stats, but the scrolling feature is a bit clunky and sometimes you swipe to scroll down and it either does nothing or selects a player. Also I want the new placers section to have more filters like projected stats for the next week or the research function available in the web page. On the go I use the app all the time but when I'm out and about an I see a player got hurt I usually open the web page instead to check stats before using the app to add them to my team. All in all really good app, I would just like the extra bells an whistles available through the web page
need bigger fonts, better layout
by cbp2 on 2012/09/06 01:10
For watching a live matchup, I set my iPad off to the side… but the screen layout and font sizes are all horrible for this. Treat it like a stadium scoreboard - the important info needs to be BIG and easy to view. The list of match ups on the left takes up like 25% of the screen! Why? There' a ton of wasted white space there, too. Why do you need to waste space with the projected stats? Make that a toggle or something, but I don't need to see that all the time. The player names, current score, current game time, etc should be HUGE. I should be able to read these from 10 feet away. I should also be able to see ALL my active players on a single screen (I shouldn't have to scroll at all). Please, please… fix this. One more thing… there appears to be no live updating. So far, I've had to hit the refresh button to get any updates. It should update automatically, ideally with push notifications, but otherwise at least once every 30-60 secs.
Good Job Yahoo
by iStAcKsKuLLzz on 2012/10/31 03:49
It does have average graphics and only one update to the app so far this season, and the notes on most players aren't updated through out the week (more efficiency on that would be nice) but I give it 4 stars. I am constantly checking everything like player stats and keeping up with the league I'm currently in. I also keep up with the weekly NFL stats more via CBS Sports. I do like the fact you can update your rosters to the coming weeks. Yahoo Fantasy Football has definitely got me more in tune with stats in the NFL. I have always been a statistician but this definitely forces me to keep up with what's going on way more than I have in the past. I am currently 5-3 and in first place in my league. I lead the league in points scored and I am second in points allowed thru 8 weeks. This is my first season playing fantasy football and it will definitely keep me busy for 17 weeks out of the year.
Great and useful!
by jlondon81 on 2009/09/14 06:11
First off, this has to be better than what ESPN is offering. ESPN advertises a free online game but charges $4.99 for the iPhone app? Please! I'm glad to see the free live scoring included in the app. I never paid for it before and was glad to hear they made it free this year. Never having had it before, I was a bit thrown off but the constant adding and subtracting of points, but I caught in quickly. I would love to be able to see other matchups within the league as opposed to going to Safari. Other than that I cant see too much wrong with it. Seems like it'd be easy to integrate more from the site to the app. With all the competition from ESPN and the like and with these apps being so new, I would hope the geniuses at Yahoo! will get on suggested improvements quickly. Plus, let's remember that Week 1 was the first true run of this. I can only hope for an update by Week 2 or 3 with some of our suggestions.
MUCH better than last year's app
by Wxuxwxyz on 2013/10/23 01:52
Update: the app now allows you to scroll through news from player to player by swiping sideways, which is a nice feature. The only problem is that you cant tell which players have new news because the "new item" indicator stays on for 3-4 days (unlike the web version, which knows what items you have already seen). Having a way to sort all player news by "most recent" would be useful. Also, the app cannot search for players (off waivers) based on any criterion except position. Previous review: This app is vastly improved over last years version. After my scathing review last year, I actually like this app. The only shortcoming (which ESPNs app has) is an "activity feed" that lets you see all of the recent injury reports and player updates at once. Because the yahoo app doesn't have this, it's not useful for making decisions about who to start.
Decent.. but could be better
by bizzmoneyb on 2016/01/28 13:04
this app is decent but could be better. its good for quickly setting your team lineups. the downsides are you can only access certain Commissioner tools if you run a league. it doesnt inform you of any trade proposals you may have received. you cant see any game/innings limits on positions if your league has them. your info on players is abit more limited. and i would LOVE it if they added the new "Start All Active Players" button to the app like they have on the team pages on the website. being able to set your active lineups with one click is fantastic.. but it isnt available in this app. its a useful app for quickly setting your lineups but it is not ideal for your only access to your fantasy leagues, especially if you are the Commissioner of a league. you still need go to your league and team pages through the main website for full use of everything.
Yahoo Fantasy Football App Review
by StevieB67 on 2016/02/09 20:57
The Yahoo NFL Fantasy Football Mobile App Review Pros: This app has many great attributes. First of all, this app makes trading and adding along with trading players quick and easy. Navigating the app is also extremely easy. Lastly, switching players in and out is is also simple and quick. Cons: Even though I have had success with this app, I have also had some problems with this app. Sometimes when I open the app, it will crash and freeze. Other times it does not show any information. The crashing, freezing and failing to show any information gets annoying, but there are a lot more positives than negatives. I have played in many fantasy football leagues over the years, and this app has been a great help. Many times, I was on a time shortage. I only had a few minutes set my fantasy football team for the week, and this app has helped me get it done. The first time I used it was a few years ago. I was on vacation in Washington with no access to a computer and a shortage of time. I was done quicker than ever. Overall, I have had a great experience with the Yahoo Fantasy Football Mobile app. It has helped me greatly with my fantasy football team. Although there are ways the app can improve, they did a great job writing this app.
Better than good!
by Need0033 on 2012/11/17 13:42
I enjoy this app immensely due to how convenient it is to check my fantasy squad and updates on the go. I do, however, wish it had some added features, such as the star ratings for your players and the epilogue that goes with what the fantasy advisors think of their weekly matchup. I find myself going to the computer more often than not just for that information. Also, in leagues where you hold the responsibilities as commissioner, I hope someday we can handle those options through this app, as sometimes a computer is not handy. Just some ideas going forward.. All in all, I love this app, especially because its FREE! Yahoo has continued to surge to the front when it comes to FF with constant updates and new ideas that keep us, especially commissioners, hungry for more. I will continue and look forward to using this app (if offered) for years to come. Thank you Yahoo!
Bad design, even worse execution
by Rbm0183 on 2013/09/10 11:59
Yahoo's updates to the web browsing fantasy football experience were really bad this year. But compared to the horrific changes they made to their mobile app, the online changes look great. This app is absolutely terrible. 1. It doesn't work. One would have thought they'd make sure the bugs were worked out by the time bullets were flying in week 1 of the NFL season, but the app is only getting worse and more unstable as time passes. 2. The UI is ugly and bizarre. Why Yahoo thought going from a clean, functional, easy-to-use appearance to this new look - which features icons that make no sense - is a mystifying question. 3. It's so hard to just view information you want to see. The viewable area changes constantly, making it very frustrating to try and view the information you're trying to see. Want to view the news or stats for your players? If you don't swipe your finger perfectly you will instead be taken to the next player on your roster. Every time. And now they have made the viewable area even smaller by adding a note to the top of the screen telling you to force close the app if it stops working (thanks, Captain Obvious) and links to other Yahoo apps at the bottom of the screen which seem to be impossible to make disappear. All in all, between the online changes and the complete and total butchering of their app, Yahoo has pretty much forced me to move to another fantasy football service after 12 years with them. It's that bad.
Awesome app but...
by TweederNutz on 2012/10/13 14:33
For some dumb reason I don't readily see my players' Byes listed on their profile or anywhere for that matter. That's kind of annoying but I still love this app and can't give it less than 5 stars. I would like to see more "sort by" options on the player search or waver line (ie: Season projected or weekly projected) much like the full web version. Also if the "Pick em" was incorporated into the app somewhere, I would love to use it but in my league everyone manages via the App only. Great job though, thanks yahoo. After my first year last year, I'm a big fan of your setup and FFB On a separate note, the iPad version has a few minor details that yahoo added that makes it tons better than the phone app when it comes to researching and comparing players and teams for making your weekly starting decisions. Awesome app!
Yahoo should be embarrassed
by OfferedRemains on 2011/09/28 00:13
This is yet another time when I wish apple would allow a 'no star' rating. This app is so pathetic in every way. First, they update it for the 2011 season by changing up the UI and TAKING AWAY FEATURES!!! What kind of app update removes useful features that make the app worthwhile?!?! I was shocked to see I could no longer add/drop players or even search for players. But they promised an update, so I waited. The update came and I downloaded it thinking relief had come. WRONG! First the app would load but then trying to do any little task was a chore beyond all chores. It was awful. Finally, the app decided to quit loading all together. It sits at the loading screen and never actually loads the app no matter how long I give it. Yahoo has been going down the drain for a long time now and the fact that they would release such a sorry app and essentially tell their customers to just deal with by not addressing any of our concerns is further proof of the horrible company they have become. You should be so embarrassed to be associated with this app, yahoo. Pathetic!
Reliable but Bad UI
by Kataclysmic on 2013/09/16 13:15
Although I have found this app to be reliable, I find its user interface almost unacceptable. They have menus with no purpose, toolbars that disappear when you scroll and reappear when you're on the top of the screen making navigation incredibly awkward. The add/drop feature leaves much to be desired to the extent that I haven't dedicated time to figuring it out. Same with the waiver wire access. Furthermore, if you're in multiple leagues, viewing all of your matchups is RIDICULOUSLY difficult as you have go go from the matchup on the main screen, hit back which takes you to THAT league's home page, THEN go back to the main page. Same process every time. If you're someone that likes to compulsively check your scores this app likes making you work for it. I also find the presentation of the information and stats inelegant and hard to read. It's not presented in a way that is easily digestible. Overall, yea this app does what it should but in a lazy and sloppy way.
Garbage app!!
by Mwolff92 on 2011/09/27 18:57
Love playing fantasy football through yahoos ONLINE layout but this app is garbage!! Last year the app was slow at loading and froze from time to time, somehow yahoo managed to come out with an even worse app! They made they layout look awesome this year but it gets stuck loading your team/matchup/league standing. It doesn't keep up with live games so unless you use safari or have a computer around don't even think about checking your score. Also they released the app with NO FREE AGENTS promising an update with player search would be released... Well they did, now you can find your players but you can't add/drop or put them on the waiver wire, WHAT'S THE POINT?!?!? yahoo's app is complete garbage this year, it amazes me that a month into the season they still haven't managed more that one update because this app needs to be fixed, yahoo is going to lose so many, including myself, to espn and NFL fantasy football. For this year download Fantast football monster '11 and as for next year, switch to espn or NFL fantasy football!
ESPN destroys this app
by plough12 on 2014/12/14 14:26
ESPN app far superior in a number of ways: yahoo doesn't have anything to compare to ESPN's FantasyCast that shows play by play of all NFL games. This is THE biggest complaint I have about this behind the times app. Yahoos player profiles are severely limited in information and content compared to ESPN. Small example, weekly performance says week# instead of opponent. There have been instances of software roster glitches that have cost me and others in my league. One week, another team and I had our DEF displaying active on Saturday and didn't notice until after our teams had locked that the DEF slot was empty. Just this week, I cancelled a claim 10 hours before it was to process after learning of an injury,but yahoo processed it the following morning anyway. Their actual site is slightly better than their app but STILL has nothing on ESPN's app. I could go on and on but to summarize, the winner of our league is the following years commissioner. When I win this season, I'll be picking this league up and heading to ESPN.
Best Fantasy App Hands Down!
by DPINDATWHITEP on 2015/01/05 07:10
I've been using Yahoo! As my fantasy option ever since I started playing fantasy sports over 10 years ago and this App. Is the best one not only because of the Yahoo! fantasy style, but just the overall ease and look. I play almost every fantasy sport (4 football teams, basketball, hockey, baseball) and to have one app that you can access all your teams is great! Live scoring and fantasy notes and news is great. Only reason I don't gib it 5 stars is that the formatting/features are not the same for every sport. For example, the football sections offer a different format/information than the basketball. Anyways I will forever use yahoo! The only thing that they could add from ESPN is the player matchup system used in football (where it matters on what position you place your players affects the overall score).
Still way too many bugs and the season has started!
by ItsML on 2013/09/06 03:59
Yahoo is so commonly used for fantasy football but next year I'm gonna get our group to switch to a better company! Last years and this years fantasy football apps have way too many bugs. It often doesn't load at all, doesn't load when you select a different match up to look at, and doesnt update changes in scores. The biggest thing is that it failed to load for our league's draft! Some friends and I were all using our iPads for our draft and all of ours failed to load no matter what we did, reset ipad, reset app, redone loaded app, nothing! We had to rush and sign into other friend's laptops, putting two or two people on the same computer, and our friend who picked 6 timed out and didnt get the player he wanted because of the problems with this app. It needs some major improvements to be a reliable app! It's only week 1 of the season and we're already frustrated with the app, I'm sure there will be issues later as the season progresses...
Beautiful. People who hate....
by roddykaregaran on 2013/09/06 09:47
This app is gorgeous. I am in love with the new yahoo and everything you guys are doing. People who are hating aren't use to change. This is a business people. Yahoo is becoming the massive powerhouse entity they once were, and it's due to the gorgeous design on this app (& other yahoo apps) AS WELL AS the website. There are a few situations (not bugs) that can be amended within the app (1. scrolling up shouldn't be so fast to unhide the top and bottom nav bars when you're looking at a team, it can be annoying. 2. We still need smack talk. 3. More profile customization and history views of previous leagues within the app, essentially bring more of the website features to the app), but overall working great! This year I've noticed the least amount of bugs. Keep up the great work!!!
Corporate Hypocrisy
by Aquaturk121 on 2014/08/02 03:26
Yahoo! wants to parade their CEO, Marissa Mayer, around as if she is some avid sports freak in touch with the thousands of fantasy football fans. They use Ms. Mayer to market how great their fantasy products are by having her act as if she actually uses them, knowing full well the Yahoo! Fantasy App for iPhone fails to perform the basic of functions (i.e. display all of the registered teams in a league). The sad truth is if Ms. Mayer was who she pretends to be, she would know this particular app simply does not work and do something to fix it. What is even more insulting is that Yahoo! puts idiotic radio advertisements on Sirius/XM talking about the greatness of their "award winning" fantasy app. This is total nonsense considering this app has a measly 2 star rating and is full of angry and frustrated users begging for Yahoo! to fix the problems. Ms. Mayer may be attractive, but not nearly attractive enough to distract from the fact that Yahoo! is simply incapable of designing and programming a quality fantasy app. The only "fantasy" is the one where Ms. Mayer and her team of flunkies dwell.
It's OK...when it's working
by Locard73 on 2013/09/10 10:22
Progress, for the most part, is good. Yahoo is clearly trying to put out a better app here. But if seems as if they are more concerned with how it looks than how it works. Sure it looks a bit better than last years offering, but it's functionality is a whole different story. It is filled with so many bugs that it difficult to get through a day without something going wrong (I missed about half of one of my drafts trying to get it up and running after an update that was supposed to "hibachi" one of the bugs). Clearly, there was not nearly enough testing performed prior to the rollout. They had about six months to get if right and they missed the mark. By the way Yahoo, your descriptions of how you took care of the bugs were funny the first few times. After reading through so many of them during the frequent updates (which seem to only cause other problems) they are now annoying. Concentrate more on fixing the problems and less in being cute and creative.
Lazy
by The KzA on 2009/09/12 03:48
This is a lazy, lackluster and near useless app. Clearly Yahoo! see more value in it's advertisers than it's user community. Everyone reviewing this app would have paid $.99 or more for a solid, feature rich application. But this isn't an application, it is an advert sold to and advertiser to "reach eyeballs on an innovative platform." I don't care about Subway. I care about scores, push updates and alerts, my league community, transactions, waivers, injuries and timely news. But clearly, you guys think I came here for a sandwich ad. Subway: this money would have been better spent on your own app that's rushed, useless and lackluster. (BTW, I wouldn't have a problem with your logos if this app did any of the things that a FF team/league owner could be productive with.) Buyer beware. Yeah, it's free, I know. But it'll cost you time, memory, wasted multi-touching energy and enthusiasm towards Yahoo! Fantasy products. To build this and put it out, sponored no less, is a true testement to why Yahoo! needs to be bought. No respect for the user or the experience context.
Better than the others..
by Trinijoeindc on 2012/11/18 18:07
I have this, ESPN, and NFL apps for fantasy football and this is by far the best one. The things I like are the ease of substituting the players with access to additional stats, the scoring is updated really fast, and I really like how they show predictions for the remainder of the season. On the other end of the spectrum I think player news needs to be updated quicker. I've seen mutiple times where players get updated days later. Last thing and I actually hate this, you can't do your draft via the app. To br fair the other two platforms can't do it either so this is something Yahoo should definitely try and do before anyone else because that is a game changer for me. Also, that outage was a fluke and i've never had a problem with them before and i've used the platform forever. Good luck!!
Yahoo Fantasy Football
by Andrewmv79 on 2013/09/11 23:13
I've played fantasy football for upwards of 10 years now. Yahoo is, by far my favorite, only the past 3 or 4 weeks my link isn't working. It reads "error connecting to server" I have no prob getting anything else to work, so it is the yahoo server. Once that stops happening, I will love this site again. When you wake up early to set a lineup and check the injury report, to not be able to do anything is extremely aggravating !! I wrote the above complaint last year, and this year the app freezes after just a few actions. Why can't you get it right? I have another league I play in ESPN, and there site is way better. That's saying a lot since there's is inferior to yours in many ways, but when I decide to set a lineup, or compare my weekly matchup, it allows me to do so. Please fix
Baseball Playoffs Broken
by SeekerJones on 2015/09/21 14:29
Latest update wrecked Baseball Leagues at the WORST possible time in the middle of their PLAYOFFS. All 30 of our leagues will use another service next year. Goodbye and good riddance Yahoo. -July 12, 2015 Video Highlights = App Too Slow Stop adding unnecessary features that make this MOBILE app too slow for the Fantasy Sports Enthusiast to use when trying to make quick decisions and changes to their teams. One of the biggest issues from the beginning of this mobile app's existence has to do with it being an all-in-one Fantasy Sports app. Different sports should have their own app. This would make the apps more responsive and easier for developers to update. Separate apps "could" create a "stand out" experience for the user provided unique development teams are chosen to work on the apps. Recent updates have continued to slow this app down. And now the latest update has brought the app to an UNNECESSARY crawl, by adding Video Highlights to many of individual player pages. Leave this stuff to the Sports News app. Granted the highlights have NO audio, if they did, this app probably would take 20 minutes to even launch. BUT eliminating the audio to prevent slowing the app down only works if the MOBILE app wasn't already overtaxing a mobile device's resources. Remember: know your app's purpose and listen to its users; if you don't practice Agile App Development, you have NO business creating mobile apps.
Gets better each year/update
by EGWashburn on 2012/09/16 03:32
The first few versions in my opinion weren't very good at all, struggling and throwing ugly errors if the network connection was lost or you left the app and came back. This version is MUCH better, and with each release and each season the app gets better and better. At this point I believe it does everything it should, as well as it should. I'd like to see a portrait mode on the iPhone and I personally would rather the app use more standard buttons/controls/layouts, but unlike earlier versions, the app now works as expected, even with the custom buttons/controls so it's really just a matter of preference. If you are participating in a Yahoo fantasy football league and have an iPhone/iPod Touch than there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't have and use this app regularly.
Needs a lot of work
by AlArPa on 2013/09/12 02:49
I like the direction Yahoo headed with this year's app (allowing live draft directly from the app, making roster updates and player news much easier to see and move between, and an overall slicker presentation), but the execution has fallen flat. Perhaps the back end wasn't quite as fleshed out as the UI front end (which I really do like). The problem is that the app is just buggy and inconsistent. There will be times when it works flawlessly, but just as frequently it hangs when moving between panels. Or player data will load, but attempting to sort by a column header causes the page to become unresponsive. It can't be a good thing when there's a very prominent banner message at the top of the app suggesting a force quit if data doesn't load. I'm hoping there's an update around the corner to add some stability, because there are some good things going on. The performance just stinks at the moment.
What a mess...
by HawksFan69 on 2011/10/18 04:07
I'm still trying to figure out who thought this app was an improvement over last year's. The graphics are sharper, but it's definitely not worth the rest of the horrible stuff you have to deal with. It takes FOREVER to get to any page (if at all). And once it gets there, it is almost impossible to scroll through the page without accidentally launching another page. You don't get nearly the same details in stats as the 2010 version--- which actually doesn't surprise me too much because I think the programmers of this app know NOTHING about sports. Hint for you guys: when you show the score of a game that a certain player is playing in, you ALWAYS put the score of the player's team first. I had a Steelers player in my lineup during the Steelers-Seahawks game a few weeks ago and was STUNNED when I saw the game score was 0-14. Well, turns out it the score was actually 14-0. It's times like this I wish I could give zero stars. My one star definitely comes with a huge asterisk.
Good App, Not Great
by rljohnson on 2012/09/22 15:57
This is a nice app to use as a supplementary experience to managing your team on the desktop website. I love to use this app while watching games on Sunday to keep track of my team, as well as my opponent's. However, I do not believe that this app is fleshed out enough to use as a standalone app to fully manage your team. Features like player notes and game to game statistics are not fully available to app users the way that they are to website users. I sometimes find myself logging into the site on my iPad to get more detailed numbers. It does what it absolutely needs to, and as a companion app to monitor your team on game day this is a great app. It's missing a few features that could make it great (more detailed stats page, a game tracker of some sort to monitor the progress of multiple games simultaneously).
Crap App
by Beanstalker1973 on 2012/09/25 03:48
Poor functionality even with the latest update- on gameday it's missing information - stats not updated or correct IF they even appear! I never know how I am doing so why use this app? It tells me nothing. As for making roster moves - clunky- and I'd rather do that on my computer. I need the app on the fly to check on my score and this app is useless for that. The reviews written by the programmers crack me up - giving it high marks and suggesting to add player #'s - what?! That's about as clueless a suggestion as the makers of the app itself! Obviously NOT written by someone that knows fantasy football... Player numbers would be helpful???What???? How??? OMG what a fake review that was! Yahoo would be better off canning this entire new interface (and those responsible for it) and just go back to the one they had 2 years ago which worked much better and was easy to use! I actually am surprised Apple even approved this App to be used as an iPhone/iPad app - it doesn't even come close to the standard! Its not easy to use or figure out - poorly designed! BTW - the yahoo StatTracker is messed up now too so I cant even get reliable FF scoring updates from yahoo on my computer. The dummies think it's enough to update everything in GameChannel for all the NFL games but not in our own Fantasy Football games?? The people now in charge of Yahoo Fantasy Football quite obviously don't know fantasy football.

Yahoo Fantasy Football App Review
by StevieB67 on 2016/02/09 20:57
The Yahoo NFL Fantasy Football Mobile App Review Pros: This app has many great attributes. First of all, this app makes trading and adding along with trading players quick and easy. Navigating the app is also extremely easy. Lastly, switching players in and out is is also simple and quick. Cons: Even though I have had success with this app, I have also had some problems with this app. Sometimes when I open the app, it will crash and freeze. Other times it does not show any information. The crashing, freezing and failing to show any information gets annoying, but there are a lot more positives than negatives. I have played in many fantasy football leagues over the years, and this app has been a great help. Many times, I was on a time shortage. I only had a few minutes set my fantasy football team for the week, and this app has helped me get it done. The first time I used it was a few years ago. I was on vacation in Washington with no access to a computer and a shortage of time. I was done quicker than ever. Overall, I have had a great experience with the Yahoo Fantasy Football Mobile app. It has helped me greatly with my fantasy football team. Although there are ways the app can improve, they did a great job writing this app.
Mostly great
by RobProsp on 2016/02/09 18:27
It has most basic features, understandably doesn't offer all that the website does. My one complaint is after going to a player's profile and then back to daily stats, the categories do not shift to where they should be
Terrible!
by Ilikegreen on 2016/02/09 00:27
Considering this is an app made by a tech company worth billions of dollars this is one of the worst apps I have ever used. It's so hard tryin to change players cuz trying to press the little edit button is almost impossible! Another thing is u can't get a players game log within the app, lol! What a joke! It's no surprise this company is in a downward spiral.
Best fantasy sports platforms
by ScamBoss on 2016/02/08 17:38
Far and away the gold standard of fantasy sports systems. App looks great and works well. Only thing holding this back from a 5 star review is that they daily fantasy is a little intrusive into the season long fantasy experience, even if you don't play daily. Would also like an option (in app purchase, maybe?) to remove ads.
Update flaw
by Brenden41 on 2016/02/03 21:02
App takes me to the resign page every time I open it and won't let me login. Claiming my password is wrong
Decent.. but could be better
by bizzmoneyb on 2016/01/28 13:04
this app is decent but could be better. its good for quickly setting your team lineups. the downsides are you can only access certain Commissioner tools if you run a league. it doesnt inform you of any trade proposals you may have received. you cant see any game/innings limits on positions if your league has them. your info on players is abit more limited. and i would LOVE it if they added the new "Start All Active Players" button to the app like they have on the team pages on the website. being able to set your active lineups with one click is fantastic.. but it isnt available in this app. its a useful app for quickly setting your lineups but it is not ideal for your only access to your fantasy leagues, especially if you are the Commissioner of a league. you still need go to your league and team pages through the main website for full use of everything.
wth is fantasy golf?
by FantasyGolfJaybird on 2016/01/27 15:19
Where is the fantasy golf app!!!!!!!??????? Lets go yahoo
Good app
by abg1974 on 2016/01/25 20:56
It was a good app once I figured out how things worked. Thanks Yahoo
Awesome!!
by SkeletonBoy138 on 2016/01/25 04:47
Simple and useful. Nice interface. Great to use for setting your lineup and checking scores and how your players are doing.
Fantasy app works well
by BigBaer42 on 2016/01/23 15:23
Keeps me up to date with my team and so far works very well! I would recommend it!
DFS doesn't work
by DRose3717 on 2016/01/23 01:54
It will not let me click to look at how my DFS team is doing. This makes it unusable and I'm switching to either Fanduel or Draft Kings because this app is useless until that gets fixed. What is the point of playing Fantasy if you can't look at how your team is doing?
Positive reviews

App does not connect most of the time
by Sweet Brown :) on 2016/01/19 23:11
Overall the app is decent, but my problem is with the connection. More than half of the time it doesn't refresh or load for hours at a time because it says there's an error and I need to check my internet connection. Doesn't matter if I'm on or off wifi, it just doesn't connect to the Internet, meaning I can't change my lineups or do anything!!
Love it
by Marco82polo on 2016/01/19 10:00
Performs much better and more reliable.
The app WAS great.
by Prelude1218 on 2016/01/19 04:21
Player updates keep resetting to a previous date. This happens to all players, or only some. It is unpredictable.
Great fantasy app
by KING YAY!! on 2016/01/19 02:40
It is really easy to use this fantasy. Most fantasy's are confusing or you can only do it on a computer but this one you can do on your phone,it simply and awesome fantasy app! I have tried a ton of Fantasy app's but they were all to complicated or you had to do it on a computer but I don't have one. This app is so easy and I totally think you should get it!!

Yahoo daily fantasy "bonus"
by Chris Gallego on 2016/01/18 12:52
Yahoo daily fantasy "pending bonus" is BS! They hold your deposit bonus until you play. Understandable, but to pay 40 cents for every $10-15 entry?? $5 entries give me 20 cents of my own "bonus" back.... really?! Way to stick it to us Yahoo... Bad scheme to advertise a deposit bonus and force users to earn that bonus by spending more and more... What a joke.
Works awesome and easy to use

Everyday error. Craps out when the LA clippers play
Pretty good
by Noodlepie123 on 2016/01/13 17:52
Overall the app is cool and fun. Still a little buggy after the last update. Should add 3D Touch to iPhone 6s - 6s Plus on player stats and updates.
Need College Hockey
by Devil6dog on 2016/01/12 19:30
Great sports app but no College Hockey???? You have soccer and Tennis which no one cares about but no American College Hockey. Please get this
Everyone DL
by LuciaaC on 2016/01/12 19:21
love the latest update! Worth the DL Can't wait to use the app again for next years fantasy game
Good app

It's pretty good, guys.
Stats
by hitmanx187 on 2016/01/11 05:48
Great app. Just needs to be able to see recent game stats per player by game and not by 7, 14 week averages.
Great and accessible
by Bornim69 on 2016/01/09 06:26
Easy, fast, can make roster changes on your phone, tablet or computer. Have fun!
One Word: AWESOME‼️‼️
by Poopy butt🤗🦄 on 2016/01/04 20:16
Ok so this is like the best app EVER‼️ so I would definitely suggest it all of it seems so real and awesome so PLAY IT!! 👍🏻👍🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻😊😊
Push Notifications
by taitepackers on 2016/01/03 20:50
This app is the best fantasy football app I have used (compared to NFL and ESPN) but it would sure be nice to have working push notifications. Either I get duplicate notifications every time something happens or I don't get any. I have yet to get a notification this week and I have had several guys score touchdowns and have had two injuries. Why can't we just get working push notifications??
Wrong Time Zone! CAN'T CHANGE!
by Mr. Inspired on 2016/01/03 18:30
All of my games are on a different time zone, it is so annoying and confusing especially when you're trying to plan your matchups. Unacceptable and should be easy to fix.
3 successful years
by Martin R58 on 2016/01/03 05:06
Just finishing year 3 for NFL Fantasy Football, and will be back for year 4.
Subpar
by CKrenzel16 on 2015/12/30 23:19
They have had plenty of time to make this app quite a bit better than it is. Player searches are really archaic. Agree with the complaint below regarding the ease of leaving an accidental hole in the starting lineup. Commissioner functions are extremely difficult. Playoffs are ridiculously hard to interpret.
Need playoff bracket
by PapayaBing on 2015/12/29 21:30
This app could be better if it was easier to track standings during playoffs
Good App
by FanofNgata92 on 2015/12/29 11:56
Overall the user interface is good. Able to move players around on your roster. Makes playing fantasy sports fun.
Good improvements, but needs more.
by klassick5 on 2015/12/28 01:27
I like the updates made from last year. Would be nice to make profile changes in the app.
Most improved
by Johnny jetman on 2015/12/27 23:25
I used to hate the yahoo app in comparison to other apps for other leagues I was in. Yahoo definitely has gotten a whole lot better and easier to navigate. One thing I'd like to recommend as an improvement for next year would be a way to see the playoff bracket. Right now if you're out of it and want to check on the other games around the league, you don't have a clear picture of who's playing for what. Especially since there are exhibition games for those who didn't make the playoffs.
Won't even open
by lafergie71886 on 2015/12/27 18:38
Freezes on the Yahoo! Sports load page. Can't even get into the app...ESPN is better.
Worst app for fantasy. Get ESPN.
by Samirpsu on 2015/12/27 17:40
Been using ESPN and Yahoo for three years side by side in two leagues. This is a Legacy GUI - only long time users like this app. Can't even find a playoff bracket it waiver order on here... Data comes in small numbers surrounded by other useless data. Unless you have been using this for years, in which case you already have this app, just get ESPN. It's intuitive and adequate for a fun fantasy football experience.
App has improved over time
by Ray Eubanks on 2015/12/26 02:09
The app has improved since 2013. I am happy that I can see the point projections and match up ratings now.
Ok app. Other companies are easier
by Nswitzer1 on 2015/12/25 01:38
It's still not intuitive to adding/looking up players. It got complicated for no reason.
Best Fantasy App on the AppStore!
by Brodycoltsfan on 2015/12/24 03:56
I am a huge fantasy player and player research is vital to me. Yahoo! has lots of filters that I need and use. I play on NFL Fantasy too but I prefer yahoo! If you are looking for a great fantasy app that is easy and free, download this app right now, I love it. I play all year round sports like baseball and basketball and never have problems like I do on NFL fantasy when it crashes. Just get it, take it from a diehard fantasy fan like me👍🏻
Use espn
by Muzlimxskillz on 2015/12/23 14:27
Worst fantasy app I've used.
Great app! Don't listen to all the hate.
by PS4>Xbone on 2015/12/23 06:16
I don't really see how this app could be improved. You added the green & red bars if players are on the field or in the red zone recently so that's an awesome feature & I see nothing to complain about. I like the update notes you have with jokes about Johnny Manziel & stuff. Overall a very great app & I don't see how this could be improved upon but it probably can.
Does what it says

Inept
by PileOfTripe on 2015/12/22 07:34
Why when clicking on a player note, why does it try to show me their stats? Even though they didn't even play! Is it that hard to make a feature useful?? Fix this stupid "feature"! If there is a note for the player, show it!
Yahoo fantasy

Great app for Fantasy football. Easy to navigate.
ESPN is far superior...
by tryan0463 on 2015/12/20 23:50
ESPN is a far superior fantasy app. The ease of use is night and day, and I wouldn't recommend this setup to anyone. Player search is far easier with ESPN and the overall lineup portion isn't even close. I had two weeks that I left positions blank because the Yahoo app isn't clear in how they break out positions. I suggest making it easy on yourself and use the ESPN app. It will save you time and headaches.

Glitchy and Confusing
by Lackjohman on 2015/12/20 05:19
As soon as you log into this app it continuously crashes and bugs out. The controls are confusing for people not very familiar with sports applications, as it does not explain features well. If you have regular access to the yahoo fantasy site on a computer I would highly recommend that as opposed to this app:

Players not locked
by 1a1aa on 2015/12/17 21:00
I noticed that after a player played on Thursday you have the ability to drop him and get another player for Sunday. This was a player on my bench but he should have been locked after game

Newest update from Dec 8 🖕

Newest update from Dec 8 is bologna. Immediately crashes when opening up individuals week-to-week stats. Also, sometimes does not update when sitting starting players. Lost first week playoffs due to this. Yahoo, I would like a reimbursement for said issues. Thanks.
Horribly Designed
by Person of life 531 on 2015/12/15 19:56
This user layout is absolutely awful, I have never had to use a fantasy layout so ridiculously complex for no reason. This app also lacks many features that other fantasy apps have standard, such as comparison of players stats side by side, and easily being to draft free agents. Never had such a letdown from a major company like yahoo. Don't use for any leagues ever, competitive or not.
Gone into hiding.

Can't even load the darn app
by ramenstein on 2011/10/15 19:44
U would think they would test the app before release I have iPad 2 and it won't even load I thought to wait hut week one is long gone and with week 2 around the corner you would think an update would have been released to at least fix the crashing issue but someone in their office is lagging hard... Maybe next year I'll move my fantasy leagues to other websites that have better support. Also why take functions out on a update?! That doesn't make sense even on opposite day. Wake up yahoo and give the users what they want and stop listening to whoever is make the calls on your end please... I been a long time user and this update was almost a slap in the face UPDATE: so I just got the update and strike 2!!!!! how can u release an update when you can't even load it ? I'm so annoyed right now... Just pathetic Update 2: this has to be a joke right are we getting punk'd or something there has been 2 updates since my last review and both were supposed to fix the problem of crashing on startup however still can't load the app it's come to the point where you are so mad that u can't help but laugh at the situation .... Ppl need to be fired for this sorry excuse of an app what's the point in fixing it anymore by the time yahoo gets it right well be 3/4 into the season. This is honestly my last year playing yahoo and they should be ashamed of them self that it's come to this. Take care of your users or your claim of being #1 won't last much longer!
Killed my friend's team
by 758346 on 2015/08/18 18:51
My friend just dropped Jose Reyes in baeball on accident because you player drop screen is so bad. He can't pick him back up unless he clears waiver which wont happen, so he is screwed. Also, I accidentally joined a public fantasy football league, so I am stuck with the icon on the left fore a long time, and am getting emails that I can't figure out how to disable. Thanks so much for nothing! Also, it takes forever to figure out who on other teams will start (as a pitcher) during the week, which ruins my strategy if I don't have time. Even with great wifi, the stat menu only appears a third of the time when I click on a player to see his stats. There is no way to compare the overall ranking of your team over the past, say month, the number is only for the entire season. Wait-no, you can look up your player in the list of all players, then set the time that it counts to a month, then waste another three minutes looking for him that way!! So I guess overall this is a great app, it just has some flaws that make it pretty much unusable if you want to win. If you don't care about winning and just want to be able to say that you play fantasy sports, this is the perfect app for you. If you want to win, use your mobile browser to acess the non-mobile site, where most of these flaws are at least a little better. But, maybe the latest "update" adding a button that does almost nothing fixes everything! Wait, no, it doesn't.
Better than ESPN in most ways. Worse than ESPN in others
by CaptainTugBoat on 2013/11/26 22:54
Well... I'm still learning to navigate the App, but so far I really like it. I used ESPN for fantasy football last year and loved it. Had a great time using ESPN. So, I was resistant to change. Yahoo was immediately better. Now I'm using the App... I like most of it. It's a teeny bit harder to navigate, but I think it has way more features... Plus, u can DRAFT from your phone using the app. So cool. Millions of reasons to use it. Just needs a little refinement. I bet they'll get it just right next year. I have some thoughts for them. Okay.... I started writing this review weeks and weeks ago. After having used this app for most of my season I have learned to really like it. There are a few little features that they could add to make it better, but the app functions well and allows you to do most of the things that you would like it to do. When I need some more very specific information that the app cannot provide me, I can always get onto Safari and check out the full online version of Yahoo fantasy football. So, overall I really like this app. I will definitely use it again next year. I just hope that they add projections for future weeks under players stats and other various statistics for teams and players.
Terrible app: take note Yahoo!
by Joemama619 on 2013/09/09 04:09
Last year's fantasy football app was actually pretty good. This year, Yahoo has completely changed the app and it is TERRIBLE! The worst part is it's very slow and hangs up, frequently requiring a hard reset. When I say frequently, I mean nearly every time I try to change pages or perform an action. The user interface is not nearly as user-friendly as last year. The UI is ugly and jumbled and difficult to figure out when switching between different fantasy leagues. Scrolling is horribly implemented! When scrolling down, everything appears okay, but if you need to scroll up because (for instance) you passed up a player, the menu pops up and realigns the player list. It makes whatever list you're looking at "jump around" on the screen. It would be better if the menu was always present rather than making it disappear and reappear. Also, switching up starters on the roster is poorly done. Once a player is selected that you want to start, the interface is anything but straightforward. It's not obvious as to who you have selected. And to make matters worse, some switches don't even go through! I changed my starters this morning only to realize at game-time that my changes didn't even go through! This app is a POS. Unfortunately this app is the only way to access my league while not at home. This will be the last year my friends and I use Yahoo! fantasy football unless this is resolved.
App Stinks Worst FFB APP
by Mattywheels77 on 2015/10/15 15:27
They really need an Email notification's on all trades Proposed to all members of a Leauge And a Email when a trades Excepted. So you don't have to check if a lopsided trade that is Proposed and Excepted and then you are unable to vote on it's Rejection. Instead your in the Dark and have to manually check any trades that maybe sitting there for weeks and then trade occurs and the two day acceptation voting period ends. Also if a trade is up for a week. And that week ends. The trade automatically wipes itself out after Sunday night @ Midnight because a players value may change drastically and you don't have access or happen to forget that trade is still there doesn't allow someone to accept a trade that is now lopsided due to injury or one player on either side of it's performance then makes the trade lopsided. There should also be no ability for a commissioner to take the voting option away from any trade due to it possibly being unfair in regards to a commissioner possibly favoring one player over another due to personnel dislike or relationship. There's still a waiting period for every trade regardless so why give a commissioner the ability to accept a trade for two parties and not allow a vote on it..... This app needs a ton of work compared to CBS SPORTSLINE AND ESPN. I myself wouldn't recommend it to anyone to ever use for a FFB Leauge. And also for REAL MONEY PLAY FFB. Your Bonus Option is a Scam.
To All Commissioners/League Managers...
by HI.cOnCePt on 2013/09/11 07:21
Please oh Please, do yourself and the rest of the league a favor and don't use Yahoo or switch immediately! This is my first year playing In a Yahoo league and I've never been so frustrated with an app in my life. Not only is it sloooooow, it doesn't load properly. I've turned my devices off and on, I've deleted the app and reinstalled it... 3 times, signed in and out, done everything possible to try and get it to work right... Nothin. It'll work for a minute then, then I get a blank screen, sometimes it splits the pages. (3/4 of one page on top,1/4 of another page on the bottom) Just to check my scores I'm going into my ESPN app (which is a million times better) to see what's happening with my players. With the way this app has been acting, God help us when try to make a trade and you end up with someone's kicker while they get AP from you! Haha! I've only had experience with ESPN, so I can't comment on other ones, but they absolutely give me what I need and more. No reason to switch elsewhere, absolutely flawless functionality! If you have no choice, stay near a computer before games because not if, but when this App screws up and its about kick off time, and you find out one of your starting players is OUT because he's got a paper cut on his pinky, LOL... Well, we all know what'll happen then... A BIG FAT ZER0!
Paying Attention
by Kilio51 on 2015/08/04 22:31
*UPDATE* Bug has been fixed and what you see below is no longer relevant. Thank you Yahoo Sports for paying attention :) Like most people have already said, this new update has made it much more difficult for those of us that care about fantasy sports and pay attention to day to day performances. First, taking away the easily viewable daily stats makes it extremely frustrating when monitoring players' performances. Second, I pay attention to the performances of other teams' players, so now having to go through several extra menus to get to view another team is infuriating. Third, I'm not even going to touch on the automatic roster fill button. Those of us that pay attention don't need it. Maybe this review will find itself lost in a sea of other 1-star reviews but maybe, just maybe, it may make the developers of the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app PAY ATTENTION! Listen to those of us who play and go back to the drawing board on what constitutes an "improvement." If not, we might all stop paying attention to Yahoo Fantasy Sports and find something more relevant.
Gettin' there
by jaydeedoubleyou on 2013/01/13 11:46
I'd kick in another 1/2 star on this if it were possible. The UI is solid but the apps technical characteristics as well as its overall "power" are pretty mediocre. I've found this to be mostly just useful for checking league scores and standings—if I ever needed any real league insight or managerial ability I've found myself on Bleacher Report or logging into the Yahoo desktop site 9 times out of 10. Once more tangible functionality is added I'll kick it up to four and when a level of solid stability is acquired then it'll be worthy of five. (The power outage really hurt your core consumer confidence.) Our league will be voting next preseason of whether we stick with Yahoo or move to CBS. I'm a Yahoo fan so I'm hoping you guys can pull one out and really make this relevant for 2013 and beyond. Might be worth considering a move to a new UI on the home screen utilizing a grid system as found on Flipboard, Cool Hunting, Pulse, etc. That would really open up space for navigable, pertinent and customized content for each player. This app should be an invaluable tool in fantasy league play—right now it seems more like it's just checking the box for having an app. Good luck devs! Go Hawks!
Rookie opinionated!
by La_Bala on 2014/10/26 09:04
This is my very first Fantasy Football Season and even though I might not know the ins and outs I think that every opinion is valuable. I like the app a lot, however I think a couple of things should be added. For example, the color of the match up against the team, green yellow and red, just like in the computer, so when you are doing changes on the app on the road it is easier to figure out what match up would be best to put your players on. Also, I got myself addicted to this thing so I have 4 leagues, so every time I open the app and the points have changed it is hard to tell if they went up or down and in which league, so how about updating it when the points go up color it in green and when they go down (fumble, interception) color it in red. The same for when you open a specific league, how about showing an update from the last time the league was opened in green and red when the points went up or down accordingly. I know this is rookie talk, but maybe this is thinking outside the box and with fresh eyes, and how hard can this be, so come on, get it together, man!
To late
by Defender fanatic on 2014/03/17 18:44
You just did an update today and it says this is the best update of our career. Don't you think it's a little late for that.? It's march don't you think you should of fixed it DURING FOOTBALL SEASON!!!!! Iv HAD to use this app for 5 years because yahoo is the league I'm in and this app has SUCKED EVERY YEAR and you fix it after football season then you will update it again at the start of the season and screw it up again. Yahoo is famous for doing this iv lost 3 out of 5 years just because of this app. Saying I changed my line up but did not do it. And NEVER working on Sunday and Monday night. I hope we do a different league next year because YOU have been putting the worst app in history out for 5 years in a row. If incompetence was a sport you would be in the Hall of Fame. Iv NEVER seen such incompetence in all my 47 years. And iv seen some incompetence. Trust me. I changed my server from yahoo because they are soooooo terrible. It's like you have 3 year olds working there. It's to little to late. YOU ARE PATHETIC YAHOO. And have done NOTHING for 5 years in a row to prove me and countless reviewers any different. So your UPDATE means NOTHING to us. Especially in March. Incase you didn't no football is over in February. This is March so just another stupid update from yahoo to make yourself look stupid AGAIN.
Used to be decent..now just bad
by Slipfan on 2011/09/08 23:36
What the heck happened? Seriously unreal and on the night of the NFL opener the app isn't complete. Last years version was decent. This one has a quirky UI and of course is missing vital components like drop/add ad well as almost everything else. Next year I'm convincing my league to switch from yahoo to ANYTHING else. Below is my review for last years app. Although, I haven't really utilized the app much since the season hasn't started I'm still giving this app 5 stars. I used last years app and although it wasn't perfect it definitely did the job. This years app doesn't seem all that different except it allows for real time scoring. While ESPN, part of billion dollar company, is charging $5 for their app Yahoo is giving their's away for free. So I will patronize their sponsors, check out the ads, and be thankful they aren't trying to shank me for $5 like ESPN. I realize this app doesn't have every feature available that some of the paid apps have but the UI is very smooth and I am able to make changes to my team on the fly as well as keep up on scores and my current matchup. Hopefully, yahoo will continue to improve this app with updates. So thank you Yahoo for not trying to rip us off like ESPN. you have my business for years to come.
Barely Functional and Terrible Navigation
by adambware on 2013/09/10 23:48
Scores and all data is slow to update. Navigation is jerky and NOT intuitive. Sidebar navigation is worthless and filled with yahoo garbage not even related to fantasy football. Glitch on iPhone 5 where screen doesn't reach to the bottom but the settings menu item oddly appears where it doesn't reach. The settings menu has options for push notifications but those options never load (which should be handled in apples notification settings anyway). No commissioner tools. It's almost impossible to view all of a players statistics because the side-scrolling stats conflict with swiping between players, on top of the fact that you cant even scroll through stats at the bottom of an iphone 5 for some reason. There's now a permanent banner at the top telling users to force quit if data is not loading. FIX IT, don't put this on the users. Coming from a web/app developer, a fantasy football commissioner, and a fan of yahoo fantasy football in general, this is ABSOLUTELY PATHETIC and not even worth the 1 star I'm forced to give it. Hopefully the developers or yahoo's new female CEO will get the hint that we want FUNCTIONALITY NOT A FLASHY APP WITH PRETTY COLORS. Also, the new app icon is garbage compared to the old one. FAIL!
Clunky and haphazard
by @josueMacK on 2013/09/10 01:41
I've always used Yahoo for my FF leagues. When the apps came out I jumped on the opportunity to see my league on the go. Until now I had never been let down. This version is extremely clunky. It tries to be sleek like the new look on the web version of your league home but fails miserably. I'm not having data issues like others, but I'm not pleased with the look and operation of this app. Also, when viewing live stat updates on your weekly matchups, if you're scrolling down through the screen there's no problem. However, when you go to scroll back up to see a player there are top and bottom tabs that pop-up and only allow you to see two players max. Look, while aggravating at least it works on my iPad, but my iPhone screen is MUCH smaller. When the screen jumps like that it is just extremely confusing at first, then it becomes off-putting. Fix a couple of small issues and it could be good. Remove the adds (which I've never noticed in other versions) and the Yahoo tab at the bottom of the screen (if i wanted a Yahoo app i would download one from the app store. This app should be dedicated to FF) and it could be great!
So Disappointed
by jlnvs on 2011/09/18 17:37
Another Sunday and I still can't monitor my team on wifi or 3G. The refresh spinner just keeps going. I've used this app for 3 years and this year it is simply unusable. The scores either don't update or the individual matchup page just refreshes on game day and never updates (using wifi or 3G). Sometimes the scores update but not the game clock status. The navigation is not as intuitive as in past years. For example - On the home page the "View Matchup" link should take you to your matchup - not the whole league page. The matchup pages are really hard to scroll without clicking on a player profile. And the concept of little tiny text links you click with your fingernail in an iPhone app is just silly. I also have not figured out how to add/drop players even though that was is the list of features. I also don't understand why the matchup pages show projected points for players but does not show the team total like the website does. This missing feature makes setting up your roster to ensure you have more projected points than your opponent much more difficult. The website in Safari works so much better than the native app but not nearly as convenient as a working app would be.
Yahoo doesn't seem to understand stats
by iohcnivek on 2015/09/18 08:17
The stats in all sports are terribly organized and they'll show you stats in a very strange manner. For football for instance, if you click on a player to pop up their bio card and look at the 'stats' category, it'll show you their points, then if you click on a week, it'll show you a list of stats including ones that they won't have impacts in, for example, wide receiver AJ Green isn't going to have passing TD's INT's and so forth. In baseball, it's a train wreck, if you are a real baseball fan and know about how stats work in the league, use ESPN. Yahoo will give you a player's stats from the day before, their cumulated week, and their cumulated two weeks. No 'research' stats like ESPN, or daily stats. Baseball is about the day to day player, not the weekly one... Basketball is terrible don't even try it. I don't have to explain myself, just trust me and avoid basketball on yahoo at all costs. It's a shame Yahoo's sports app is amazing but their fantasy one is so awful. Wouldn't recommend, won't come back with friends... ESPN's fantasy apps aren't very good either but yahoo's is just so bad, it's worth putting up with theirs.
Deleted it and using web for time being
by REAL HIP HOPPPPPPPPP on 2015/08/01 21:07
What's the point of having a fantasy baseball app on your phone if you can't do the one most satisfying thing in fantasy baseball, check your teams individual stats for the day.... My brain hasn't been able to process how an update as dreadful as this one got ok'd. What's even more infuriating is each day that passes in which this isn't fixed. Are the developers not paying attention to the reviews or do they just not care? Deleted the app and resorting to saving my leagues homepage safari link on my home screen until it's fixed,if ever. Yahoo you've made a convincing argument to never use you for a fantasy league ever again. Go back to your 2008 fantasy league model when everything was simple and easy to use and easy to read with out a bunch of bells and whistles causing noise on every page. The website has gotten worse and worse, and now your app is unusable, with your website close behind it. Find some developers who know fantasy sports/sports in general, because nobody who's played even just one season of fantasy anything would know to never allow something as stupid as this update to be released.
For the love of god fix this thing!
by This nickname is taken 89 on 2013/12/01 17:37
It's pretty d@#$ obvious that Yahoo! is paying no attention at all to this app anymore. I understand the fantasy season is almost over, but this thing is almost unusable in the state it's in right now. For the past month a white screen keeps popping up, & here lately it's been getting more & more constant. At times, when the white screen comes up you can just exit out of it, but other times it gets stuck on the white screen. All you can do then is reset the app & start over again with what you were doing. And hopefully you can complete your task before it does it again. This is not the only issue that has plagued Yahoo! Fantasy Football this year, but i feel it is one of the worst. And even worst is the fact that Yahoo! is doing absolutely nothing about it. I have been dealing with Yahoo's sh@#%! work with fantasy sports for a long time now. And at this point I feel like it is worth the extra cash playing on CBS Sports, to not have to deal with this crap. I'm doing great in my leagues right now, yet I am looking forward to the end of the season, more just to finally be done with Yahoo!.
Runs SO MUCH BETTER
by DJShotz on 2011/11/20 13:53
This is the best the app has been all year. I don't get logged out randomly. I don't have to keep "retrying" to connect. You can FINALLY add/drop... Only thing missing is waiver additions... If you guys just make a waiver button under "view roster" it might work best for you! Click the waiver button and see each team in the order of there waiver with a number by the team name... Then once inside on the bottom you'll see two tabs one says "List" other says "My Waviers"... Click on my waivers and you can easily see a list of waivers in the order they will occur for example click edit to change order (kind of like how you change players)... Also when you click a waiver you will see each player and they're current stats they will be spreader by putting a "Get:" section at the top and a "Drop" section at the bottom... Implement that and you are GOLDEN... shouldn't be hard since you have all the tools available already in use throughout your app
Terrible Version
by iflyfa18s on 2013/09/13 18:16
How much begging will it take to go back to the old version? Every time I open the app, I'm on a page with 2 buttons. Create/Join League & Draft Central. I'm in a league. I want to do neither. And did I mention the error "Can't connect to server. Dismiss or Retry"? It has never NOT popped up. I have a great connection, but this app can never find it. Now I did see the menu, but it asks me to sign in. When I tap it... Nothing. When I click settings, it goes to a page that just says Push Notifications. Nothing there to select. The Rate This App button seems to be the only link that works in the whole app. I've never even been able to see my team. Is it me? Am I missing something? I don't see a link to my team or anything. Is this a terrible app or can someone tell me how it works? I never had a problem with the previous versions. UPDATE: In the ongoing fiasco that is this horrible app, I found a place to provide feedback & contact tech support. The thing is, to send a question, you need to fill in a captcha. I have never gotten one wrong in my life, but after being told 15 times my response was wrong, I gave up. Worst app ever!
Frustrating
by TAvzw on 2013/09/15 04:03
I gotta say, I love Yahoo's fantasy leagues, definitely the gold standard in fantasy football for sure. But this app is pretty terrible. When it works, I really like the functionality... Checking on player status / notes is easy and roster moves are seamless... But then it just stops working. Suddenly data stops loading and all functionality is lost. I have made roster moves that appeared to save but then didn't which can be a huge problem. They have had multiple updates come out where cheeky version changes talk about how "data problems have been ejected" and "our terrible app has been upgraded to full health" or whatever, but still the data stalls exist and it can be maddening. Mostly happens when switching between leagues (I have 3) but still... When I have 5-10 minutes to dedicate to checking my teams, I probably have to restart the app 5-6 times. They actually had a banner at the top for a long time that said if your data isn't loading to restart the app. C'mon guys, you're Yahoo, and your fantasy leagues are the best there is, gotta fix this or what's the point of having an app at all?
If you only want to see your homepage…
by Cdflen on 2013/11/05 11:31
Revised review: This is the first year the app has actually worked (knock on wood). I'm not a fan of the dark background or the sensitivity when scrolling (individual player info pops up), but these are minor complaints compared to past years when it crashed constantly or never even opened. Old review: If you only want to see your homepage…this is the app for you. If you want to view points, rankings, match-ups, players, make a trade, read a players status, or the most obvious thing on a Sunday - see if you're winning - nope, not the app for you. Why is a company as huge as Yahoo! unable to EVER get it together w/their FF app? It's the same year after year. They (almost) fix it by the time the season ends, but they should be troubleshooting for months before it starts. 94.3% of everyone I know plays FF so it's not like this is a basket weaving app used by 6 grandmas! Get it together Yahoo! and I'll change my rating.
Still could use some of the features on computer
by TheGovNa on 2012/09/05 13:43
I love playing yahoo fantasy football and over the years the app has gotten better but there are a few tweaks and features holding it back from a 5 star rating. First the app works fine for setting your team and making trades, picking up new players and tracking game day stats, but the scrolling feature is a bit clunky and sometimes you swipe to scroll down and it either does nothing or selects a player. Also I want the new placers section to have more filters like projected stats for the next week or the research function available in the web page. On the go I use the app all the time but when I'm out and about an I see a player got hurt I usually open the web page instead to check stats before using the app to add them to my team. All in all really good app, I would just like the extra bells an whistles available through the web page
need bigger fonts, better layout
by cbp2 on 2012/09/06 01:10
For watching a live matchup, I set my iPad off to the side… but the screen layout and font sizes are all horrible for this. Treat it like a stadium scoreboard - the important info needs to be BIG and easy to view. The list of match ups on the left takes up like 25% of the screen! Why? There' a ton of wasted white space there, too. Why do you need to waste space with the projected stats? Make that a toggle or something, but I don't need to see that all the time. The player names, current score, current game time, etc should be HUGE. I should be able to read these from 10 feet away. I should also be able to see ALL my active players on a single screen (I shouldn't have to scroll at all). Please, please… fix this. One more thing… there appears to be no live updating. So far, I've had to hit the refresh button to get any updates. It should update automatically, ideally with push notifications, but otherwise at least once every 30-60 secs.
Good Job Yahoo
by iStAcKsKuLLzz on 2012/10/31 03:49
It does have average graphics and only one update to the app so far this season, and the notes on most players aren't updated through out the week (more efficiency on that would be nice) but I give it 4 stars. I am constantly checking everything like player stats and keeping up with the league I'm currently in. I also keep up with the weekly NFL stats more via CBS Sports. I do like the fact you can update your rosters to the coming weeks. Yahoo Fantasy Football has definitely got me more in tune with stats in the NFL. I have always been a statistician but this definitely forces me to keep up with what's going on way more than I have in the past. I am currently 5-3 and in first place in my league. I lead the league in points scored and I am second in points allowed thru 8 weeks. This is my first season playing fantasy football and it will definitely keep me busy for 17 weeks out of the year.
Great and useful!
by jlondon81 on 2009/09/14 06:11
First off, this has to be better than what ESPN is offering. ESPN advertises a free online game but charges $4.99 for the iPhone app? Please! I'm glad to see the free live scoring included in the app. I never paid for it before and was glad to hear they made it free this year. Never having had it before, I was a bit thrown off but the constant adding and subtracting of points, but I caught in quickly. I would love to be able to see other matchups within the league as opposed to going to Safari. Other than that I cant see too much wrong with it. Seems like it'd be easy to integrate more from the site to the app. With all the competition from ESPN and the like and with these apps being so new, I would hope the geniuses at Yahoo! will get on suggested improvements quickly. Plus, let's remember that Week 1 was the first true run of this. I can only hope for an update by Week 2 or 3 with some of our suggestions.
MUCH better than last year's app
by Wxuxwxyz on 2013/10/23 01:52
Update: the app now allows you to scroll through news from player to player by swiping sideways, which is a nice feature. The only problem is that you cant tell which players have new news because the "new item" indicator stays on for 3-4 days (unlike the web version, which knows what items you have already seen). Having a way to sort all player news by "most recent" would be useful. Also, the app cannot search for players (off waivers) based on any criterion except position. Previous review: This app is vastly improved over last years version. After my scathing review last year, I actually like this app. The only shortcoming (which ESPNs app has) is an "activity feed" that lets you see all of the recent injury reports and player updates at once. Because the yahoo app doesn't have this, it's not useful for making decisions about who to start.
Decent.. but could be better
by bizzmoneyb on 2016/01/28 13:04
this app is decent but could be better. its good for quickly setting your team lineups. the downsides are you can only access certain Commissioner tools if you run a league. it doesnt inform you of any trade proposals you may have received. you cant see any game/innings limits on positions if your league has them. your info on players is abit more limited. and i would LOVE it if they added the new "Start All Active Players" button to the app like they have on the team pages on the website. being able to set your active lineups with one click is fantastic.. but it isnt available in this app. its a useful app for quickly setting your lineups but it is not ideal for your only access to your fantasy leagues, especially if you are the Commissioner of a league. you still need go to your league and team pages through the main website for full use of everything.
Yahoo Fantasy Football App Review
by StevieB67 on 2016/02/09 20:57
The Yahoo NFL Fantasy Football Mobile App Review Pros: This app has many great attributes. First of all, this app makes trading and adding along with trading players quick and easy. Navigating the app is also extremely easy. Lastly, switching players in and out is is also simple and quick. Cons: Even though I have had success with this app, I have also had some problems with this app. Sometimes when I open the app, it will crash and freeze. Other times it does not show any information. The crashing, freezing and failing to show any information gets annoying, but there are a lot more positives than negatives. I have played in many fantasy football leagues over the years, and this app has been a great help. Many times, I was on a time shortage. I only had a few minutes set my fantasy football team for the week, and this app has helped me get it done. The first time I used it was a few years ago. I was on vacation in Washington with no access to a computer and a shortage of time. I was done quicker than ever. Overall, I have had a great experience with the Yahoo Fantasy Football Mobile app. It has helped me greatly with my fantasy football team. Although there are ways the app can improve, they did a great job writing this app.
Better than good!
by Need0033 on 2012/11/17 13:42
I enjoy this app immensely due to how convenient it is to check my fantasy squad and updates on the go. I do, however, wish it had some added features, such as the star ratings for your players and the epilogue that goes with what the fantasy advisors think of their weekly matchup. I find myself going to the computer more often than not just for that information. Also, in leagues where you hold the responsibilities as commissioner, I hope someday we can handle those options through this app, as sometimes a computer is not handy. Just some ideas going forward.. All in all, I love this app, especially because its FREE! Yahoo has continued to surge to the front when it comes to FF with constant updates and new ideas that keep us, especially commissioners, hungry for more. I will continue and look forward to using this app (if offered) for years to come. Thank you Yahoo!
Bad design, even worse execution
by Rbm0183 on 2013/09/10 11:59
Yahoo's updates to the web browsing fantasy football experience were really bad this year. But compared to the horrific changes they made to their mobile app, the online changes look great. This app is absolutely terrible. 1. It doesn't work. One would have thought they'd make sure the bugs were worked out by the time bullets were flying in week 1 of the NFL season, but the app is only getting worse and more unstable as time passes. 2. The UI is ugly and bizarre. Why Yahoo thought going from a clean, functional, easy-to-use appearance to this new look - which features icons that make no sense - is a mystifying question. 3. It's so hard to just view information you want to see. The viewable area changes constantly, making it very frustrating to try and view the information you're trying to see. Want to view the news or stats for your players? If you don't swipe your finger perfectly you will instead be taken to the next player on your roster. Every time. And now they have made the viewable area even smaller by adding a note to the top of the screen telling you to force close the app if it stops working (thanks, Captain Obvious) and links to other Yahoo apps at the bottom of the screen which seem to be impossible to make disappear. All in all, between the online changes and the complete and total butchering of their app, Yahoo has pretty much forced me to move to another fantasy football service after 12 years with them. It's that bad.
Awesome app but...
by TweederNutz on 2012/10/13 14:33
For some dumb reason I don't readily see my players' Byes listed on their profile or anywhere for that matter. That's kind of annoying but I still love this app and can't give it less than 5 stars. I would like to see more "sort by" options on the player search or waver line (ie: Season projected or weekly projected) much like the full web version. Also if the "Pick em" was incorporated into the app somewhere, I would love to use it but in my league everyone manages via the App only. Great job though, thanks yahoo. After my first year last year, I'm a big fan of your setup and FFB On a separate note, the iPad version has a few minor details that yahoo added that makes it tons better than the phone app when it comes to researching and comparing players and teams for making your weekly starting decisions. Awesome app!
Yahoo should be embarrassed
by OfferedRemains on 2011/09/28 00:13
This is yet another time when I wish apple would allow a 'no star' rating. This app is so pathetic in every way. First, they update it for the 2011 season by changing up the UI and TAKING AWAY FEATURES!!! What kind of app update removes useful features that make the app worthwhile?!?! I was shocked to see I could no longer add/drop players or even search for players. But they promised an update, so I waited. The update came and I downloaded it thinking relief had come. WRONG! First the app would load but then trying to do any little task was a chore beyond all chores. It was awful. Finally, the app decided to quit loading all together. It sits at the loading screen and never actually loads the app no matter how long I give it. Yahoo has been going down the drain for a long time now and the fact that they would release such a sorry app and essentially tell their customers to just deal with by not addressing any of our concerns is further proof of the horrible company they have become. You should be so embarrassed to be associated with this app, yahoo. Pathetic!
Reliable but Bad UI
by Kataclysmic on 2013/09/16 13:15
Although I have found this app to be reliable, I find its user interface almost unacceptable. They have menus with no purpose, toolbars that disappear when you scroll and reappear when you're on the top of the screen making navigation incredibly awkward. The add/drop feature leaves much to be desired to the extent that I haven't dedicated time to figuring it out. Same with the waiver wire access. Furthermore, if you're in multiple leagues, viewing all of your matchups is RIDICULOUSLY difficult as you have go go from the matchup on the main screen, hit back which takes you to THAT league's home page, THEN go back to the main page. Same process every time. If you're someone that likes to compulsively check your scores this app likes making you work for it. I also find the presentation of the information and stats inelegant and hard to read. It's not presented in a way that is easily digestible. Overall, yea this app does what it should but in a lazy and sloppy way.
Garbage app!!
by Mwolff92 on 2011/09/27 18:57
Love playing fantasy football through yahoos ONLINE layout but this app is garbage!! Last year the app was slow at loading and froze from time to time, somehow yahoo managed to come out with an even worse app! They made they layout look awesome this year but it gets stuck loading your team/matchup/league standing. It doesn't keep up with live games so unless you use safari or have a computer around don't even think about checking your score. Also they released the app with NO FREE AGENTS promising an update with player search would be released... Well they did, now you can find your players but you can't add/drop or put them on the waiver wire, WHAT'S THE POINT?!?!? yahoo's app is complete garbage this year, it amazes me that a month into the season they still haven't managed more that one update because this app needs to be fixed, yahoo is going to lose so many, including myself, to espn and NFL fantasy football. For this year download Fantast football monster '11 and as for next year, switch to espn or NFL fantasy football!
ESPN destroys this app
by plough12 on 2014/12/14 14:26
ESPN app far superior in a number of ways: yahoo doesn't have anything to compare to ESPN's FantasyCast that shows play by play of all NFL games. This is THE biggest complaint I have about this behind the times app. Yahoos player profiles are severely limited in information and content compared to ESPN. Small example, weekly performance says week# instead of opponent. There have been instances of software roster glitches that have cost me and others in my league. One week, another team and I had our DEF displaying active on Saturday and didn't notice until after our teams had locked that the DEF slot was empty. Just this week, I cancelled a claim 10 hours before it was to process after learning of an injury,but yahoo processed it the following morning anyway. Their actual site is slightly better than their app but STILL has nothing on ESPN's app. I could go on and on but to summarize, the winner of our league is the following years commissioner. When I win this season, I'll be picking this league up and heading to ESPN.
Best Fantasy App Hands Down!
by DPINDATWHITEP on 2015/01/05 07:10
I've been using Yahoo! As my fantasy option ever since I started playing fantasy sports over 10 years ago and this App. Is the best one not only because of the Yahoo! fantasy style, but just the overall ease and look. I play almost every fantasy sport (4 football teams, basketball, hockey, baseball) and to have one app that you can access all your teams is great! Live scoring and fantasy notes and news is great. Only reason I don't gib it 5 stars is that the formatting/features are not the same for every sport. For example, the football sections offer a different format/information than the basketball. Anyways I will forever use yahoo! The only thing that they could add from ESPN is the player matchup system used in football (where it matters on what position you place your players affects the overall score).
Still way too many bugs and the season has started!

Yahoo is so commonly used for fantasy football but next year I'm gonna get our group to switch to a better company! Last years and this years fantasy football apps have way too many bugs. It often doesn't load at all, doesn't load when you select a different match up to look at, and doesnt update changes in scores. The biggest thing is that it failed to load for our league's draft! Some friends and I were all using our iPads for our draft and all of ours failed to load no matter what we did, reset ipad, reset app, redone loaded app, nothing! We had to rush and sign into other friend's laptops, putting two or two people on the same computer, and our friend who picked 6 timed out and didnt get the player he wanted because of the problems with this app. It needs some major improvements to be a reliable app! It's only week 1 of the season and we're already frustrated with the app, I'm sure there will be issues later as the season progresses...
Beautiful. People who hate....

This app is gorgeous. I am in love with the new yahoo and everything you guys are doing. People who are hating aren't use to change. This is a business people. Yahoo is becoming the massive powerhouse entity they once were, and it's due to the gorgeous design on this app (& other yahoo apps) AS WELL AS the website. There are a few situations (not bugs) that can be amended within the app (1. scrolling up shouldn't be so fast to unhide the top and bottom nav bars when you're looking at a team, it can be annoying. 2. We still need smack talk. 3. More profile customization and history views of previous leagues within the app, essentially bring more of the website features to the app), but overall working great! This year I've noticed the least amount of bugs. Keep up the great work!!!
Corporate Hypocrisy
by Aquaturk121 on 2014/08/02 03:26
Yahoo! wants to parade their CEO, Marissa Mayer, around as if she is some avid sports freak in touch with the thousands of fantasy football fans. They use Ms. Mayer to market how great their fantasy products are by having her act as if she actually uses them, knowing full well the Yahoo! Fantasy App for iPhone fails to perform the basic of functions (i.e. display all of the registered teams in a league). The sad truth is if Ms. Mayer was who she pretends to be, she would know this particular app simply does not work and do something to fix it. What is even more insulting is that Yahoo! puts idiotic radio advertisements on Sirius/XM talking about the greatness of their "award winning" fantasy app. This is total nonsense considering this app has a measly 2 star rating and is full of angry and frustrated users begging for Yahoo! to fix the problems. Ms. Mayer may be attractive, but not nearly attractive enough to distract from the fact that Yahoo! is simply incapable of designing and programming a quality fantasy app. The only "fantasy" is the one where Ms. Mayer and her team of flunkies dwell.
It's OK...when it's working

Progress, for the most part, is good. Yahoo is clearly trying to put out a better app here. But if seems as if they are more concerned with how it looks than how it works. Sure it looks a bit better than last years offering, but it's functionality is a whole different story. It is filled with so many bugs that it difficult to get through a day without something going wrong (I missed about half of one of my drafts trying to get it up and running after an update that was supposed to "hibachi" one of the bugs). Clearly, there was not nearly enough testing performed prior to the rollout. They had about six months to get if right and they missed the mark. By the way Yahoo, your descriptions of how you took care of the bugs were funny the first few times. After reading through so many of them during the frequent updates (which seem to only cause other problems) they are now annoying. Concentrate more on fixing the problems and less in being cute and creative.
Lazy
by The KzA on 2009/09/12 03:48
This is a lazy, lackluster and near useless app. Clearly Yahoo! see more value in it's advertisers than it's user community. Everyone reviewing this app would have paid $.99 or more for a solid, feature rich application. But this isn't an application, it is an advert sold to and advertiser to "reach eyeballs on an innovative platform." I don't care about Subway. I care about scores, push updates and alerts, my league community, transactions, waivers, injuries and timely news. But clearly, you guys think I came here for a sandwich ad. Subway: this money would have been better spent on your own app that's rushed, useless and lackluster. (BTW, I wouldn't have a problem with your logos if this app did any of the things that a FF team/league owner could be productive with.) Buyer beware. Yeah, it's free, I know. But it'll cost you time, memory, wasted multi-touching energy and enthusiasm towards Yahoo! Fantasy products. To build this and put it out, sponored no less, is a true testement to why Yahoo! needs to be bought. No respect for the user or the experience context.
Better than the others..

I have this, ESPN, and NFL apps for fantasy football and this is by far the best one. The things I like are the ease of substituting the players with access to additional stats, the scoring is updated really fast, and I really like how they show predictions for the remainder of the season. On the other end of the spectrum I think player news needs to be updated quicker. I've seen mutiple times where players get updated days later. Last thing and I actually hate this, you can't do your draft via the app. To br fair the other two platforms can't do it either so this is something Yahoo should definitely try and do before anyone else because that is a game changer for me. Also, that outage was a fluke and i've never had a problem with them before and i've used the platform forever. Good luck!!
Yahoo Fantasy Football
by Andrewmv79 on 2013/09/11 23:13
I've played fantasy football for upwards of 10 years now. Yahoo is, by far my favorite, only the past 3 or 4 weeks my link isn't working. It reads "error connecting to server" I have no prob getting anything else to work, so it is the yahoo server. Once that stops happening, I will love this site again. When you wake up early to set a lineup and check the injury report, to not be able to do anything is extremely aggravating !! I wrote the above complaint last year, and this year the app freezes after just a few actions. Why can't you get it right? I have another league I play in ESPN, and there site is way better. That's saying a lot since there's is inferior to yours in many ways, but when I decide to set a lineup, or compare my weekly matchup, it allows me to do so. Please fix
Baseball Playoffs Broken
by SeekerJones on 2015/09/21 14:29
Latest update wrecked Baseball Leagues at the WORST possible time in the middle of their PLAYOFFS. All 30 of our leagues will use another service next year. Goodbye and good riddance Yahoo. -July 12, 2015 Video Highlights = App Too Slow Stop adding unnecessary features that make this MOBILE app too slow for the Fantasy Sports Enthusiast to use when trying to make quick decisions and changes to their teams. One of the biggest issues from the beginning of this mobile app's existence has to do with it being an all-in-one Fantasy Sports app. Different sports should have their own app. This would make the apps more responsive and easier for developers to update. Separate apps "could" create a "stand out" experience for the user provided unique development teams are chosen to work on the apps. Recent updates have continued to slow this app down. And now the latest update has brought the app to an UNNECESSARY crawl, by adding Video Highlights to many of individual player pages. Leave this stuff to the Sports News app. Granted the highlights have NO audio, if they did, this app probably would take 20 minutes to even launch. BUT eliminating the audio to prevent slowing the app down only works if the MOBILE app wasn't already overtaxing a mobile device's resources. Remember: know your app's purpose and listen to its users; if you don't practice Agile App Development, you have NO business creating mobile apps.
Gets better each year/update
by EGWashburn on 2012/09/16 03:32
The first few versions in my opinion weren't very good at all, struggling and throwing ugly errors if the network connection was lost or you left the app and came back. This version is MUCH better, and with each release and each season the app gets better and better. At this point I believe it does everything it should, as well as it should. I'd like to see a portrait mode on the iPhone and I personally would rather the app use more standard buttons/controls/layouts, but unlike earlier versions, the app now works as expected, even with the custom buttons/controls so it's really just a matter of preference. If you are participating in a Yahoo fantasy football league and have an iPhone/iPod Touch than there's absolutely no reason you shouldn't have and use this app regularly.
Needs a lot of work
by AlArPa on 2013/09/12 02:49
I like the direction Yahoo headed with this year's app (allowing live draft directly from the app, making roster updates and player news much easier to see and move between, and an overall slicker presentation), but the execution has fallen flat. Perhaps the back end wasn't quite as fleshed out as the UI front end (which I really do like). The problem is that the app is just buggy and inconsistent. There will be times when it works flawlessly, but just as frequently it hangs when moving between panels. Or player data will load, but attempting to sort by a column header causes the page to become unresponsive. It can't be a good thing when there's a very prominent banner message at the top of the app suggesting a force quit if data doesn't load. I'm hoping there's an update around the corner to add some stability, because there are some good things going on. The performance just stinks at the moment.
What a mess...
by HawksFan69 on 2011/10/18 04:07
I'm still trying to figure out who thought this app was an improvement over last year's. The graphics are sharper, but it's definitely not worth the rest of the horrible stuff you have to deal with. It takes FOREVER to get to any page (if at all). And once it gets there, it is almost impossible to scroll through the page without accidentally launching another page. You don't get nearly the same details in stats as the 2010 version--- which actually doesn't surprise me too much because I think the programmers of this app know NOTHING about sports. Hint for you guys: when you show the score of a game that a certain player is playing in, you ALWAYS put the score of the player's team first. I had a Steelers player in my lineup during the Steelers-Seahawks game a few weeks ago and was STUNNED when I saw the game score was 0-14. Well, turns out it the score was actually 14-0. It's times like this I wish I could give zero stars. My one star definitely comes with a huge asterisk.
Good App, Not Great
by rljohnson on 2012/09/22 15:57
This is a nice app to use as a supplementary experience to managing your team on the desktop website. I love to use this app while watching games on Sunday to keep track of my team, as well as my opponent's. However, I do not believe that this app is fleshed out enough to use as a standalone app to fully manage your team. Features like player notes and game to game statistics are not fully available to app users the way that they are to website users. I sometimes find myself logging into the site on my iPad to get more detailed numbers. It does what it absolutely needs to, and as a companion app to monitor your team on game day this is a great app. It's missing a few features that could make it great (more detailed stats page, a game tracker of some sort to monitor the progress of multiple games simultaneously).
Crap App
by Beanstalker1973 on 2012/09/25 03:48
Poor functionality even with the latest update- on gameday it's missing information - stats not updated or correct IF they even appear! I never know how I am doing so why use this app? It tells me nothing. As for making roster moves - clunky- and I'd rather do that on my computer. I need the app on the fly to check on my score and this app is useless for that. The reviews written by the programmers crack me up - giving it high marks and suggesting to add player #'s - what?! That's about as clueless a suggestion as the makers of the app itself! Obviously NOT written by someone that knows fantasy football... Player numbers would be helpful???What???? How??? OMG what a fake review that was! Yahoo would be better off canning this entire new interface (and those responsible for it) and just go back to the one they had 2 years ago which worked much better and was easy to use! I actually am surprised Apple even approved this App to be used as an iPhone/iPad app - it doesn't even come close to the standard! Its not easy to use or figure out - poorly designed! BTW - the yahoo StatTracker is messed up now too so I cant even get reliable FF scoring updates from yahoo on my computer. The dummies think it's enough to update everything in GameChannel for all the NFL games but not in our own Fantasy Football games?? The people now in charge of Yahoo Fantasy Football quite obviously don't know fantasy football.
