There comes a point in the life of a product where the developers say screw it, let's just start over. This isn't the first official NFL fantasy football app to hit the Play Store (that would be back in 2011), but it is completely brand new. The software is sporting a thorough redesign that should look just fine on a brand new Android device.

FantasyFootball2 FantasyFootball3 FantasyFootball4

The new version of the app is tailored to fit both phones and tablets without too much wasted space. The UI is flat, the colors are bright, images are big, and text is easy to read. But no, it isn't all about the looks here. There are plenty of features to take advantage of.

Features:

  • JOIN AND CREATE LEAGUES: Join and start playing fantasy football in just a few minutes.
  • VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: The only fantasy app to feature video highlights of all your key plays.
  • LIVE SCORING: Follow your teams and players in real time.
  • SET YOUR LINEUP: Start or bench players on the go.
  • TRANSACTIONS: Improve your team with players adds, drops and trades.
  • PLAYER NEWS: Get official news and injury updates, direct from the NFL.
  • MANAGE MULTIPLE TEAMS: Access and control all of your NFL.com Fantasy teams and leagues.

NFL.com Fantasy Football is free to download, so have at it.

    Still no mention of Drafting via the app. This is perhaps the least supported feature across the 3 major players (ESPN, Yahoo, NFL) yet it's the most important.

    I wanna be confident I can draft on the go if I'm not set up at home in my war room.

      Drafting is coming soon. Hang tight.

      I did the draft from my Nexus 7 with the Yahoo app last year.

        I tried it too but I wasn't a fan of it. You can't look up crucial player stats or other things while you're drafting. It's kind of narrow in its scope. I want this feature expanded.

        The other 2 if I'm not mistaken don't even have drafting at all.

          Maybe it worked ok for me because I did a lot of prep before. Everyone in our league used the app though.

    I waited for this design in android...

    I was considering using CBS this year after using the official NFL Fantasy app last year in part because of the terrible app. I just hope they've updated their website as well. Damn thing would freeze up the entire browser after so many clicks. /rant

    I hope this UI makes it into this year' s NFL app as well.
