The Good

  • Time in business
  • Paid league options
  • Flexibility with league size

MFL has spent over two decades figuring out how to deliver one of the best fantasy football experiences available. In addition to a free standard league, MFL offers a number paid league options that fit any budget. They have also teamed up with RealTime Fantasy Sports to produce the Fantasy Championship League, where for just $250 per team, users can 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 league size. For example, while ESPN and Yahoo! Sports only permit up to 20 teams per league, MFL leagues can go as high as 200 teams. Users will also find a competitive draft client in MFL, which has made provisions for both online and offline drafts, as well as a mobile app that tracks their team’s progress is real time.

The Bad

  • Customer complaints
  • No expert advice
  • Mobile app is not free

Despite MFL’s extensive experience in the field, they have had plenty of complaints. 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. While the possibility that these claims are not substantiated by evidence is real, the fact that MFL has not elected to respond to (or is wholly unaware of) these complaints is the main reason why it has received a failing grade. MFL is at a disadvantage compared to other companies as it provides no expert analysis or advice beyond informing users of injuries to players in their lineups. And though it does feature a mobile app, this app costs $2.99 while other fantasy football apps are free.

The Bottom Line

In conclusion, remains one of the most steady providers in the business, and has demonstrated its resilience for over 20 years. However, the fact that it has not responded to customer complaints, and that it charges for a service that most of its competitors offer free of charge should raise caution in anyone looking to seriously get involved with fantasy football.

    September 5th, 2016 Elk Grove Village, IL

    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.
