The Good

  • Index of expert draft picks
  • Great features

ESPN has kept pace as one of the top expert-led fantasy football sources in the industry. In addition to an impressive index of expert draft picks, pre-season analysis, and informative articles, ESPN offers several media channels to bring fans the latest player updates:

  • Fantasy Football Now: ESPN's flagship fantasy football television program; also available for live internet streaming
  • Fantasy Focus: ESPN's fantasy football podcast that provides daily player previews, game overviews, injury reports, and strategy
  • FantasyCast: Provides users with live play-by-play updates for every game being played

ESPN additionally offers a complete draft client, paid leagues, and several customizable league options. ESPN also offers its ESPN Insider paid service which gives serious fantasy football fans even more insight into their draft picks and league trends. ESPN Fantasy Football remains as one of the top-used portals by league commissioners.

The Bad

  • Inflexible in some aras
  • Lower payouts and higher entry fees

With that in mind, ESPN does demonstrate some inflexibility in other areas. Its paid leagues are not as dynamic as most other paid leagues, which means overall lower payouts and higher entry fees. The same can be said for its league sizing restrictions; leagues can only be between 10 and 20 teams. Also, while ESPN's Insider feature may give users an advantage come Draft Day that other services cannot match, it is still a paid service. And while iOS users generally have had no complaints as to ESPN Fantasy Football's mobile app, Android users have consistently reports app crashes and sluggishness in terms of live updates.

The Bottom Line

Overall, ESPN Fantasy Football has been the standard against which all other fantasy football services are measured against. As far as expert analysis is concerned, ESPN is nearly perfect in its coverage. Its free service remains one of the most popular on the market. Potential users should be aware, however, that ESPN does impose restrictions on league size, and serious fans looking to profit from their fantasy football experience should consider other options.

The phone application is extremely easy to use and allows me to add/drop players with ease. I love that I can edit my lineup and look at stats of different players so that I can find the best players available on waivers.

me and my freinds have been using ESPN to play fantasy football for at least 6 years now. We tried a few other apps that just dont seem to work as well and arent as quick with updating their scores like ESPN is. ESPN is the place to be for all things fantasy

ESPN Fantasy Football is a hallmark in fantasy sports. They have the best insight on player performance, trends, and NFL culture. So by default, their fantasy football platforms are premier. Live scoring, player updates, and team stats help make fantasy decisions easier. I love my league on ESPN Fantasy Football. Just love it.

The app is trash! I can never open it because it claims there is not a good internet connection. That's funny because my Fantasy Yahoo app works every time.

Im not a fan of ESPN at all anymore. Their fantasy platform is one of the worst I have used. There is little room to customize to adjust for your own league.

I have done Fantasy Football for years and ESPN is my favorite place. I think their website is easy to use and navigate. There are so many users that it is also fun to compare stats and wins. If you are looking for the best Fantasy Football headquarters- ESPN is the place.
