Fantasy Football Top Websites
Standard Fantasy Football
The most popular fantasy football websites are competing every year for the most users. Here is a list of the current most popular fantasy websites:
- Yahoo! Fantasy
- CBS Sports Fantasy
Yahoo! Fantasy is the most popular fantasy website, followed by ESPN.com and NFL.com. The aspect that sets these websites apart from the competition is their easy to read overlay. Yahoo! Fantasy is very popular due to how easy it is to jump in and play. ESPN.com and NFL.com are a little harder to read and require some more experience, but their in-depth player analysis and weekly fantasy shows make them very popular.
Once a league is started on each website, it will archive past year's data, which makes people less likely to switch.
Pros of Yahoo! Fantasy
Yahoo! Fantasy is the most popular fantasy website. It's very accessible to new players with in-depth tutorials for every section of the web page. It's very easy to get started on Yahoo! Fantasy and simple to get connected with others who want to play just as much as you do!
Yahoo! Fantasy also has a very simple overlay that is easy to read. Drafting, the trade block, and even the waiver wire are very easy to find and maneuver with the simple overlay that takes place over just a few screens.
Pros of ESPN.com Fantasy
ESPN.com Fantasy is less popular due to being less accessible by new players. It's made more for experienced players of fantasy football. Because of this, the overlay can sometimes be hard to navigate if you don't know what you're looking for. The upside of this is that everything on ESPN.com Fantasy is very customizable. There are a multitude of different league types and custom settings that can be set that you wouldn't be able to find on any other websites.
Another plus to ESPN.com Fantasy is how in-depth their analysis shows and statistics pages are. Since the website is made for sports fans, the amount of statistics on the website is endless. It's possible to go back years at a time to find stats on a player who is no longer in the NFL.
