    Yahoo! Fantasy Football app for iPhone updated for 2010 

    I was starting to get worried that my Yahoo! Fantasy Football app for my iPhone was going to say 2009 all season long, but thankfully they’ve finally released the 2010 update. Log into the App Store and download the update if you have an iPhone and use Yahoo! for your fantasy football leagues!

      Me too! Although I noticed that they claim to offer Alerts in this update but I don’t see a way to set them up…will probably show up when the season starts.

      My main league has been using Yahoo for 10 years now. I was getting worried they weren’t going to offer a decent app upgrade as well. Now all is well.

      I still find the app to be lacking some of the data I like to see. I end up just logging in to the actual site from the web on the phone lol. Plus on game day I like using the Stat Tracker.

      Can you complete your draft from the app? I can’t be near a computer tomorrow, but i have the app.

        Oops, didn’t get to this one in time. Did you give the app a try for the draft? I’m thinking even if it did work, it wouldn’t be that user friendly. Let us know how it went if so though!

      How is the yahoo fantasy football app for iphone 2010 working?

      • Brandon 6:23 am on September 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        Not sure if it was just me, but it wasn’t working at all!!! I could bring up the main screen, but none of my teams were listed so I couldn’t view any of the stats. I tried it about 20 times hoping it was just a temporary glitch, but no luck. Maybe tonight it’ll be working again…

    ESPN Fantasy Focus and Stephania Bell: My two favorite discoveries this season 

    I’ve got to credit both of these finds to my iPhone – more specifically, the fantastic (and free) Stitcher Radio app, which has a fantasy football channel. This is how I first encountered the ESPN Fantasy Focus podcast, which has become a regular companion on my dog’s nightly after-dinner walk.

    focusFootball_v2_300Hosted by Matthew Berry and Nate Ravitz, Fantasy Focus is great once you get past the obligatory five-minute warm-up, which generally consists of personal anecdotes you won’t care about and jokes you won’t laugh at (no matter how many times you repeat the line, “That is factually correct,” it still isn’t funny). Thankfully, Berry and Ravitz more than make up for it with their knowledge of and obvious love for fantasy football – I almost always learn something important that I didn’t know before, and their enthusiasm is contagious.

    A frequent guest on the show is Stephania Bell, an orthopedic clinical specialist and fantasy football geek whose blog is easily the most thorough resource for NFL player injury info. Definitely one to add to your feed reader.

      I’ve been listening to Fantasy Focus for the past 2 years and I totally agree that their enthusiasm and love for fantasy is quite infectious. Also when you combine Fantasy Focus with ESPN Football Today, you’ve pretty much got the NFL covered from reality and fantasy.

      • Matt 8:40 am on November 24, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        That is factually correct.

      I’m in the wrong career path. I should have grown up aspiring to host a Fantasy Football TV show. Where did I go wrong??

      Thanks for the heads-up on Ms. Bell. RSS subscription added..

      I’ve listen to several of their podcasts over the last few years but their good content to mixed in with way too much “entertainment” – I’ll follow your blog and you let me know what is important 🙂

    Good news for those of you who use fancy-schmancy cell phones to view our humble blog: I just installed a unbelievably awesome WordPress plugin called WPTouch which automatically detects whether a visitor is on a supported mobile device (iPhone, Android, Blackberry, etc.) and then serves up a version of the site designed specifically for that phone. Huge thanks to the developers at Brave New Code who wrote this plugin and offer it to the WordPress community for free.

      Man I just added the new turbo upgrade (essentially a page cache) for wordpress to my browser and it’s making a load of difference! My loading times have been halved! Great freaking upgrade! I suggest every one else with firefox add it too. All you need to do is go to the log in page and then go into your account under the tools section to download it. Happy Hunting and good luck to everyone tomorrow night!

      I’d love to start Miami D so I could watch the game with a bit more enthusiasm but Pats D are too enticing against the Jets.

      Who to start at RB??? Options are…

      Turner (injured)
      Portis (likely out)
      Wells (waiver pick up this week)

    Yahoo! fantasy football apps launching on September 8 

    A tweet from YahooFootball just now:

    Yahoo on iPhone and Blackberry

    Holla indeed. Great news for Yahoo! users with iPhones and Crackberries. I hadn’t heard the news and tried to figure out why Yahoo! thinks we might already know. All I could dig up was this press release from August 12 which mentions the mobile apps:

    This year, Yahoo! fantasy football enthusiasts will be able to track their favorite team’s success right in the palm of their hands. On September 8th, Yahoo! Fantasy Football goes mobile, launching three different ways to stay on top of their game. Included in the Yahoo! Mobile offering will be an iPhone app, a BlackBerry app, and a version for the mobile web. With mobile fantasy football you can get real-time scores and player stats, the ability to bench and start different players, and even the ability to trade with others in your league – all through your mobile device.

    If there’s one thing I’m a bigger dork about than fantasy football, it’s my iPhone, and all my leagues are on Yahoo!, so this is pretty much the perfect storm of awesome. I’ll get a review up here as soon as I get my grimy mitts on it.

      I’ve been using my fan teams pro with my iPhone. I wonder how this will compare.

      • Matt 12:44 pm on August 28, 2009 Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, I’ve been using that too, and it’s not bad, but it’s kind of slow.

      Just got the app this morning and it looks pretty decent so far…will have to wait until the games start to make the final call though.

      It currently thinks that Devin Hester, Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles are on a BYE week though, while the Patriots play the Broncos this weekend…interesting. I assume all the schedules are screwed up at this point, but they should be fixed soon I would hope.

      really because when i go to the link, it still says to check back on Sept. 8th

      If you have an iPhone, just search for the Yahoo Fantasy Football app and you can sign up there.

    An interview with Matt Maroon, co-founder of Draftmix.com 

    DraftmixDraftmix is a website that offers a novel approach to fantasy sports. A Draftmix “league” is a very short-term commitment – it lasts only a week. You participate in a normal fantasy football-style draft on a Wednesday, drafting players who you think will put up the best numbers in just that given week. The following Tuesday, payouts are awarded and that’s it – league over. Draftmix is aimed at those people who like playing fantasy football for money but are looking for some short-term gambling gratification.

    Brandon and I first heard about Draftmix last year when we were invited to join the Draftmix Blogger Challenge (and thanks to big games from Joseph Addai and Hines Ward, we won). I’ve been keeping an eye on Draftmix ever since. I think it’s a fun concept that’s implemented very well. They’re still flying a bit under the radar at the moment, but they were just getting started in ’07 and I think they could really catch on in a big way this year.

    This afternoon, I had a chat with Matt Maroon, part of the three-man Draftmix team (and a former professional poker player). (More …)
