This app from CBS Sports takes you right into all the news you'll need for your fantasy team. A simple layout and great navigation gets you player news and tons more. An entire section of the app is dedicated to fantasy advice. News articles load in-line and there is a decent amount of information. As a fantasy client, it's a bit bare. But as a news source, it's a free app that certainly can't hurt.
Yahoo's hub for fantasy sports also houses their bracket challenge. Like ESPN, Yahoo's offering makes it easy to enter your picks, and join or create a league. It really comes down to personal preference, or what everyone else in your pool is already using. You can't go wrong with either. There's a $25K prize for the best bracket.
When you think about football, ESPN is likely one of the first news sources you'll name. In addition to running fantasy leagues, ESPN is a wealth of news and information. I've always run my friends' leagues through ESPN, and the app has always been average. However, this year ESPN came up big and really pushed the envelope. The app is beautiful with well-organized news stories, fantasy advice and articles, and helpful videos to get help you pick that FLEX position. Of the three biggest clients to host your league on, ESPN deserves it this year.
