It’s almost that time of year again. In anticipation of the 2013 NFL football season, Yahoo has updated its popular Fantasy Sports – Football app. The free app is available for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.

First launched in 2009, the enduring app is now on its fifth version.

Completely redesigned for the new season, the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports – Football app now includes the ability to draft from your iOS device. This includes picking players, setting your queue, checking results, and chatting with other managers. You can also prepare for your real draft by running a mock draft.
