Fantasy sports starters kit – the most basic fantasy sports apps you must have on your iPhone

Aug 16, 2017

If you love and follow any of the four major American sports leagues – NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL -, we’re pretty sure you’ve already heard about fantasy sports. Playing fantasy sports not only provides a super fun and easy-to-learn way to compete with your friends, family, or colleagues in your customized fantasy leagues, but also adds another layer to your fandom, inspiring you to keep track of players and teams you would otherwise not pay much, if any, attention at all. To kick off your fantasy sports career, all you need is a few friends, some free time, a great deal of love for the chosen sport, and of course an A-plus fantasy sports app. We can’t help you with the first three, but we can and will with the fourth: check out the most basic and best fantasy sports apps you must have on your iPhone!

Yahoo Fantasy Football Basketball Hockey Baseball

We’re definitely not starting from the bottom only to later be able to say that now we’re here (if you’re scoring at home, that was a lame attempt at a Drake reference). What we’re trying to say is that Yahoo’s versatile fantasy sports app is the best in its category, which is evidenced by the fact that it was voted the Best Fantasy Sports Mobile App and Best Commissioner Mobile App by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association four consecutive years, from 2013 to 2016; which is almost as impressive as LeBron James’ streak of seven straight NBA Finals. With the Yahoo Fantasy Sports app, you can manage and customize multiple teams and leagues, get access to priceless expert tips and analysis courtesy of Yahoo Fantasy and Rotoworld fantasy sports pros, and participate in daily fantasy contests to score cash prizes (you can, for instance, spend on sports memorabilia or game tickets).

DraftKings – Daily Fantasy Golf, Baseball, & More

Some people go as far as likening the recent (and still unfolding) real money fantasy sports boom to the online poker revolution from approximately ten years ago. We’re not necessarily ready to ride with that hyperbole, but what we do know is that in DraftKings, more than $2 billion has been paid out in prizes, which is a staggering amount of cash, no matter how you look at it. Besides being the go-to app for millions of people putting money on the line while playing fantasy sports, DraftKings is also the official daily fantasy sports site of the NHL and the MLB. Whether you’re looking for free or paid games, DraftKings delivers a wide range of daily and weekly contests in an unparalleled selection of sports that includes basketball, football, hockey, baseball, soccer, golf, and even auto racing.

ESPN Fantasy Football Baseball Basketball Hockey

The strongest feat of the official ESPN fantasy sports app is without a Steph-Curry’s-clutch-gene-in-the-Finals-sized iota of doubt its football feature. You can still play other sports – such as basketball, hockey, and baseball -, but believe us when we tell you that you won’t. In the ESPN Fantasy app, you can create and customize your own league or join existing leagues to fine-tune your fantasy sports skills, manage multiple teams, get player rankings and analysis from ESPN’s fantasy sports experts, and last not least subscribe to push notifications to always have the latest news and videos about players on your roster right at your fingertips. In case you’re managing multiple teams, or you’re simply a stat nerd, you’ll be delighted to hear that ESPN will send you weekly wrap-ups with which you can thoroughly track your squad’s performance.
