The Yahoo Fantasy Sports app is your one-stop shop for playing, drafting, and managing all your favorite players and teams in the NFL, Fantasy Basketball, MLB, NHL, PGA, & Tourneys. Yahoo Fantasy Sports is the #1 Rated Fantasy Sports App for playing Fantasy Football, Fantasy Baseball, Fantasy Basketball, Fantasy Hockey, Daily Fantasy, Tourney Pickem Best Ball, & more. Yahoo is making a big push into the world of Daily Fantasy Sports with an innovative platform that will look familiar to those that have used their Season-Long Fantasy platforms in the past.
Yahoo is taking its fantasy sports expertise and distilling it down into its DFS offerings, ensuring their sports-based platform has something for seasoned DFS veterans, but also for the novices giving it a shot out of their season-long leagues. Yahoo does Daily Fantasy too, but the offering pales in comparison to the juggernauts of that space, FanDuel and DraftKings. Yahoos classic fantasy products survive, in part, because friends created leagues years ago, back when Yahoo was an important technology player.
Like other operators in the space, like DraftKings and FanDuel, Yahoos fantasy games let users draft their teams or lineups from the actual players, with a limited salary cap, called salary, that is accessible to every user. The most popular league on Yahoos fantasy roster offerings is the NFL, where a few thousand users pay a registration fee to join each contest with a chance at large payouts, depending on how their fantasy teams fare. Prizes in daily fantasy events at Yahoo reach into the lower multi-million-dollar range over several weeks in the NFL calendar, similar to a few other DFS sites.
Yahoo goes above and beyond to make the experience both entertaining and informative, with post-draft reviews and draft rankings for each team on Yahoo Fantasy Football, plus weekly reviews of all contests and awards for the best performances across various categories. Kate Rutkowski, 32, based in Portland, Ore., jokes that the product is the lesser of all evils, which includes rivals such as ESPN and the NFL itself.
