The Good

  • League Size Flexibility
  • User-Friendly Experience
  • Free 4-Week Trial
  • Mobile App
  • Opportunities for Communication and Personal Expression

League Size Flexibility

MyFantastyLeague offers a number paid league options that fit any budget. On occasion the company has  teamed up with RealTime Fantasy Sports to produce the Fantasy Championship League, where for just $250 per team, users could compete for a grand prize total of $200,000. 

Furthermore, MFL leagues are customizable: users can organize their own leagues and set their own scoring rules if they so desire. This company also grants users more flexibility than other providers, particularly in terms of number of teams. For example, while ESPN and Yahoo! Sports only permit up to 20 teams per league, MFL leagues can go as high as 200 teams. For your NFL playoff season, you can set up as many brackets as you want.  

User-Friendly Experience 

This management system boasts a detailed and comprehensive league history, fantasy league previews and recaps, blind bidding, auctions, extensive keeper/salary features, and more positions and scoring options than some other fantasy sites. 

MFL supports both live online drafts and email drafts. Every team/league manager can also conduct a draft off-line and later enter the results.  

Free 4-Week Trial 

MyFantasyLeague offers a free 5-week trial. You can start setting up your mock drafts anytime and start playing for free for the first 4 weeks of the NFL season. At that point, the company claims that its affordable price is comparable to the cost of "a beer or two for a season's worth of entertainment." 

MyFantasyLeague offers discounts for early pre-season purchases and prices are all-inclusive with no hidden fees. Users have year-round access to their team management and histories, even when it's not football season. 

Mobile App 

MyFantasyLeague's live scoring app, called GameDay, gives quick and accurate in-game scoring. Using GameDay, you can track all your leagues in one place. The app also has an audio announcing feature with voice-enhanced live scoring. 

Opportunities for Communication and Personal Expression 

MyFantasyLeague uses Twitter integration and users can interact socially with other players in a variety of ways.  This includes videoconferencing and video trash-talking, as described in the company intro video. MFL also has a Facebook page for communication as well as an online forum with message boards.  

With MyFantasyLeague, you can choose the appearance of your fantasy football league pages by customizing: 

  • Franchise and league logos
  • Standings icons 
  • Custom colors, fonts, and font sizes
  • Backgrounds
  • Logo templates 
  • 950+ pre-made helmets (or create your own) 
  • Pre-made skins (or create your own)
  • Add or remove menus or tabs
  • Customize the content of each tab with home page modules 
  • Create your own home page modules with custom HTML 
  • Move modules around the page or expand/contract them 

The Bad

  • Exclusively Football 
  • Customer Complaints 

Exclusively Football 

This aspect is seen as good by some and bad by others. The company's league management system is exclusively football, which won't bother football-only fans. While MyFantasyLeague claims to spend the off season utilizing customer input to improving its fantasy football system and users can access their accounts year round, other fantasy sites offer a variety of sports to keep fantasy sports fans engaged with whatever sport is current in that season. 

Customer Complaints 

Despite MFL's extensive experience in the field, it has had plenty of complaints over the years. One of these complaints involved MFL's violation of its own privacy policy in distributing private user information (i.e. message board conversations, trade offers, etc.) to other users not directly involved with private league operations.

It's a possibility that these claims, which are not substantiated by evidence, are inaccurate. However, the fact that MFL has not elected to respond to these complaints is perplexing. 

The Bottom Line

MyFantasyLeague measures up to what fans want to see for their fantasy team. With number of teams and league flexibility, social opportunities, mobile app, a competitive price, and live scoring updates, this company knows what fantasy football should look like. Users will also find a competitive draft client in MFL, which has made provisions for participants to conduct an online draft, email draft, or offline draft. 

MyFantasyLeague recently published integrated player rankings from pros at FantasyShark.com and continues to inform users of injuries to players in their lineups to give partipants the best chance of success. Overall, MFL is a great choice for fantasy football season.

Been using this site for nearly 15 years. Yes, it is a little obtuse at times. But it is the most customizable site out there, and their customer service is easy to contact and very responsive. If I ever have issues, I use their contact form and receive a response within an hour or so. If you want to create your own rule and make your league whatever you want, this is the site to use.

The site was not setup to be user friendly at all, in fact I was never able to ever sign into my league. There were no instructions on how to correct the issue, and no way to contact customer service. Horrible experience. Never use this service.
