  • Was amazing! Small changes have made it worse Oct 22, 2021

    By asdas
    I really hope someone that works on the app actually sees this and takes it to heart because I use the app every single day. My 2 biggest issues stem from changes that were made to the app in the prior months and the first of the 2 is the inability to uphold trades as an LM from the app. This used to be possible from the activity screen but it is no longer an option and forces LM’s to have to go on the website and uphold trades from there. The second issue is the “Interested In” section of all free agent waiver pools in each fantasy sport shows everyone how many people are interested in a player. I used this feature to track players that I was in fact, interested in, but I can no longer do that and have to keep a notes section open in my phone just so that other members of my league don’t see that someone else is interested in said waiver player. This was never an issue before but an update changed this so all I ask is for this to be changed back! Other than these 2 things this app is amazing and it is so easy to manage all fantasy sports in one place, please make these 2 changes it would mean a lot! Thank you!

    Great app, have used it with my friends for 3+ years. However with the most recent update, if your Android is in dark mode, you cannot see who's is on the field or in the redzone due to the background not being transparent. Seems it's a little buggy now too.
  • Slow & buggy Oct 7, 2019

    I can’t believe I’m writing this on a Tuesday morning, but the app is even slow & bombing out now... and it’s so much worse when it matters most, on Sundays. Lineup changes & research in the last hour before games is terrible, especially after NFL teams post final injury status... and all through the games. This has been happening for years, and my league only remains here because of inertia. We know Yahoo is better (our friends share this by showing us the app of course). On top of it, in game point totals have been wrong with frequency this year, so “projections” are effectively meaningless since, if they are sometimes wrong... they might always be... so they have to be calculated offline/manually to be certain (that’s assuming the stats are right...) I really hope ESPN adds a server or a dozen, especially something extra on Sundays, or I’m going to be pushing for the change in 2020 that we’ve wanted for years now. If the app cannot work well, ESPECIALLY as you do final prep to set lineups and track your teams’ progress on game day — the second best part of fantasy football after the draft — what’s the point in staying around?

  • Pretty Good but not perfect Nov 6, 2019

    This app is very good. There is nothing particularly wrong with it, but there are some quality of life problems that should be fixed. This is included being only able to access the my team and matchup options in the main menus, and also accessing other leagues. You have to click on the my team or matchups options and scroll right. Depending on where you are in the menu, other leagues are not accessible and you need to exit menus to get to them. There is also the same problem with editing team names and other settings and options. However, this app brings real time stats and clips to help you make educated decisions on who to bench and who to play. This includes text telling the status of a player, point averages, rankings and text to better explain events. This is a high 4 and could be a five with more updates to fix problems mentioned earlier.
  • ESPN MAILING IT IN ONCE AGAIN Oct 22, 2019

    By Mildred Moody
    Yeah I know it’s a free app but it’s as if they don’t even care to improve it with anything but an aesthetic upgrade every now and then. Sure a couple of functional changes happened last year but they didn’t make the app more user friendly. The stat research on the app is flat out garbage. And their draft room and preseason player breakdowns are a joke. For ex: 2020 B Ball app doesn’t have adequate or even remotely accurate stat projections. During my draft I wanted to see what Kyrie Irving’s projections for this upcoming season would be and they were obviously not his projections. Other starting caliber centers have zero RB as their per game projections. That’s ridicoilso. You’re ESPN. At least get that right. Also, as league manager I can’t do anything from my phone. I have to get on the full desktop to adjust settings in my league. Speaking of which, I have a friend who started his first league this season and made one mistake in his roster settings pre-draft. It’s impossible to adjust roster positions and such after the draft. Why is that so hard to do? Why not expand LM ability to sculpt each league to his or her liking? How much money does ESPN have? With all these advertisers I imagine their fantasy sports brings in some money. Maybe pay to really deliver an incredible app next year ESPN? Already looking forward to next season on a different app and this season hasn’t even started yet.

    I am in a fantasy baseball league with my uncle, brother, and grandpa. We have a ton of fun on this app, but it’s not perfect. It has occasionally logged us out of the account. Also, as our draft approaches, we are trading picks, and we have to make a weird maneuver to make it work. We have to tell the other who to draft then trade who we got at the other slot. It would be a lot easier if there was just a way to trade picks. Also, the logging out glitch is bad. I already mentioned it, but it really messes it up that Mike Trout can ride the bench for a season while putting up career stats because you can’t remember your password. That’s all I have to say, but don’t think because of my critiques that it’s a bad app. Far from it. We love it, but these are some edits that might need to be considered.

  • Streak for the cash needs improvement Feb 4, 2018

    By tebaseball1
    My dad and I have both had problems with making picks we don't want. When we are scrolling through the list of picks, one of our tap&drag actions on the screen will actually select a pick. I'm pretty sure when this happens, the animation to turn the pick yellow doesn't happen, or maybe it happens off screen because we are scrolling down the list. We weren't trying to select it, we were just trying to scroll. I'd really like it if this was fixed. Other than that, the app is pretty good. During fantasy football season it was a bit annoying that the app would load to streak for the cash and I would have to wait for the "loading picks" to finish before I could switch to the fantasy football portion and update my lineup. A bit stressful when it's 1 minute to kickoff and you want to make a change to your roster before the lineup locks. Other than that, pretty good app.

    Great fun app. Really the best fantasy app. The reason for the one star is that it if you have your phone set to dark mode it forces you to have the app in dark mode and it looks horrible with dark mode on and there is no way to turn it back. Please fix it.

  • Ads are ruining the experience. Oct 22, 2020

    By Angry tird burglar
    This is my second year playing fantasy. I actually don’t mind most of the interface, although some changes could obviously improve it. Notifications would be nice. When trades are offered, I have no way of knowing they’re there unless I tap on “Roster” and see a badge icon waiting for me. My biggest complaint is that the ads are too much. When there is an update on a player, I can opt to watch a brief segment on said player. Every video I try to watch, I’m met with the same exact irrelevant 30 second ad. I don’t mind watching the ads once or twice, since it’s a “free” platform and they need to make their money somewhere. The problem for me is when I want to watch 10+ player videos, and I’m met with the same, unskippable 30 second ad. After watching the ad, it should give you an option to skip the ad after 10 seconds. Even better, if you watch the ad once, maybe skip over the remaining ads for a certain amount of time? I know I’m asking Disney to give up their greed, in a time where they’re taking huge financial hits on multiple fronts, but there is no reason this app could not be the one fantasy app to rule them all. I firmly believe that with just a few changes to the app, they could really own the market with fantasy.

  • Fantasy Hockey Jan 31, 2021

    By David456712
    Espn should be embarrassed as how portly this app performs. It’s slow, info is unbelievably inaccurate and they continuously get starting goalie info wrong. Espn fantasy hockey also does a very poor job at keeping players info up to date and they make it extremely hard to run a fantasy league. There have been countless times where there are players who are injured that espn has not recognized as injured and have them as healthy. It’s pathetic I will be moving my league onto another platform for next season. Oh and the absolute worst thing is when you set your lineup and click save, it doesn’t even save the updated lineup. I’ve have this happen on 5 different occasions where team owners have messaged me saying they put certain players in their lineup and when they go check there lineup later that day, some or all of those players are on the bench, even when they put those players in their lineup and clicked the “save button”. If you couldn’t already tell this is a pretty serious league and ESPN is not equipped for real fantasy leagues and managers. Overall, espn is a NO GO for fantasy hockey. No way football is any better. If I could give it 0 stars I would.
  • There’s no way to communicate with other players! Apr 21, 2018

    By jdhommert
    This is the first review I’ve ever left in my life, just because this is so frustrating. If I want to make a trade there is zero way to just ask them hey who do you want for this guy? You don’t know who they value, who they want, where they want to upgrade so you’re left just sending random players/proposals. I tried attaching comments in a trade proposal only to find out that they don’t show up in the app or the email. If you try to post a message on the “talk smack” board, it doesn’t notify/alert or even put a little icon saying that someone posts something, so nobody ever checks it. I try to send a message directly to the person to talk smack, they get no notification. I post on the league message board, same thing. Unless you specifically go in and look at it, there’s no way to even know anything is there. I’m just trying to find a way to communicate with the other owners just to start a Facebook message or group but nobody even knows those messages are there. It looks like the default option for receive email is off too, because I had to toggle mine on, so I can’t even get a message to my commissioner. Talk about frustrating.

  • Garbage Nov 6, 2017

    By Hoke6
    Been playing FF for 15 years and this app is pretty bad. It’s better on the website but this is America we use our phones dude. But that’s not really that much better. You can only set your lineup for the current week starting on Tuesday. Why is that a thing? I mean basically Espn decided you can’t go on an 8 day vacation and if it is a 7 day vacation make sure you come back by the 1pm games cause otherwise you just left all the injured and bye week players in. Kinda ridiculous. It’s not all that user friendly or aesthetically pleasing to the eye but you can get around all that if they let you set a lineup besides this week. I do like that is doesn’t just volunteer “transaction trends” like the yahoo app does cause then you can make moves instead of others just being handed who to pick up, but that’s about the only thing it’s got better than yahoo. Yahoo shows stats of the opposing ranks and such. I like being able to use research and insight to decide who to get but I’m not gonna spend half my week researching cause you guys can’t just put rankings like the website has on the app. Kinda wish i could give zero stars.

    I can’t rate an App that doesn’t function, but I will try. ESPN has really bombed this year. They used to set the standard for all fantasy sports. Now are a smoking dumpster fire! This app rarely functions. It just will not download on anything approaching a consistent basis. This problem is mirrored in the actual website, which is also unreliable and difficult to use. It’s a real shame. ESPN Fantasy used to be top notch. Over the summer they made changes- all bad. Hey guys, if you are listening you need to know that you are alienating your users. Our basketball leagues have already started so we are stuck, but if something doesn’t change soon, there will be a mass exodus to Yahoo next season.
  • No support for League Managers Aug 5, 2018

    By FlexDeadrun
    Great app for most players...unless you’re a league manager. Barely offers anything for management in the app. Therefore, you have to log on to the actual website to adjust any league settings. Ok...I can do that...except when I log onto the website with it iPad or iPhone and log into the Fantasy side to adjust my league settings it automatically opens the app on the device. Only way around this is to DELETE the app on the device, then login to the website and make changes to the league. They either need to make the website not automatically push me into the app or allow access to make all changes allowed in the website through the app.
  • ESPN Fantasy App Oct 14, 2017

    By Eclipse This
    Our league has been together for twenty years on another site. This is the first year we moved to ESPN. While many of us start our fantasy careers in our 20’s, the power of technology has allowed us to stay together into our 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Note to Millennials: You will never have more free time than you do now. Once you get married, have kids, juggle careers, become active in the community you have less and less time to take care of high priorities like your fantasy team. I appreciate the resources made available prior to our the auction draft. I am grateful for two minute (or less) drills on injuries or free agent pick ups. I like Matthew Berry, Field Yates, and Stephania Bell equally well (although I wish Stephania would talk about routes more). I like the rankings that include Mike Clay and Eric Karabell. If the playoffs were held today in our ten team league I would be in, but we all know a lot can happen over the next nine weeks. I will click on the app on a regular basis and I hope the energy & enthusiasm of the talent over a long season will stay at a high level. Donald Hale Owner of “Eclipse This” Columbia, SC
  • App Keeps Closing Sep 1, 2017

    By jckdflckf
    Have been using the ESPN app for a few years now for fantasy football. Not until this year have I had this problem. 80% of my attempts to get on the app fail, it completely closes and takes me back to my phone screen. Can we please get an update to fix this problem for IOS. I had an issue last night where i opened the application, went over to the streak game mode. As I was scrolling down to make a pick the app closed, so I leave it alone for another time. A few hours later I get a notification that my pick lost (a pick that I never picked). And it's quite upsetting, and I know it's just a game lol but I hope it's a bug that can be sorted out.
  • Love the app and much more room for improvement Sep 8, 2020

    By 5 time champ
    The app is amazing, I love it. They could add more features as well! In my opinion they should add a comment section under the videos about the players so you can see what other people also think and get different opinions! Another feature they should add are a start em/sit Em category with 2 players you can put and they should make it so you can submit it and other fantasy users can vote on who they think you should start and sit. They can get much more creative with the app and I feel like this will give them a much bigger grip hold on the fantasy community.

    i’ve been playing in your legs for several years and enjoy them, but over the past couple of years I have noticed some changes that have detracted from the fun. I used to be able to see a list of leagues, customized and other, but no longer see them. I used to enjoy playing in winners leagues or insiders leagues but they are no longer available. I used to be able to see a schedule of leagues out into the future so I could join one days or weeks ahead of time, but do not seem to be able to do so anymore. Why have you made these changes?
  • Doesn’t even compare to Yahoo Fantasy Football! Oct 3, 2019

    By Sgt Gleason
    I’ve been playing fantasy football for 5 years now and have used the yahoo fantasy football app until now. I joined a league this year that uses the ESPN app and it’s nowhere near as user friendly as Yahoo. Navigating Yahoo is faster and easier and there are so many more features with Yahoo. Like comparing players, filtering the player results in several different categories and also points breakdown play by play. Hopefully ESPN reads their reviews and will make their app more competitive with others. For now, I plan on using Yahoo.
  • ESPN Fantasy App NOT Updated before season Sep 5, 2018

    By GreatAScott
    I’ve been using the Fantasy App for years on ESPN and not had any problems. But for the last year or so it feels like ESPN has done nothing to update the app other than add videos and ads that drain power. Now I’m ready for the next season of Fantasy Football and the app doesnt even have my updated team in my league. It feels like ESPN has done nothing to make this app worthwhile. Oh yeah, if you try to access your fantasy team FROM the ESPN website it sends you to the app that DOESNT have the updated roster. If they dont fix this problem soon, I might just switch to Yahoo moving forward

    By Makfhcurmengdhvkbn
    Why they felt the need to change/update the app is beyond me. If you can’t make it better you don’t do anything at all! Nothing works, I would rather keep my own stats on a chalkboard them deal with this abomination of an app. Desktop version is not any better. Pop ups everywhere impede the ability to click on what you need to click on and if you somehow magically can get to the button underneath the pop-up it does not take you where you want to go. So happy for baseball so angry for this site. ESPN should be better than this!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • ESPN Fantasy Football App Review Dec 13, 2018

    By dirty deputy
    It needs more stats listed for the players, such as the prior weeks fantasy point etc. maybe by sliding on the screen to see more stats. I’m finding myself constantly having to cancel out when picking up a new player and having to decide which player to drop because I can’t see enough of there stats. I have to cancel out the pick up and drop, go back and click on my original player to pull up more stats and then start over. I still feel the desktop format is the best.

This includes text telling the status of a player, point averages, rankings and text to better explain events. This is a high 4 and could be a five with more updates to fix problems mentioned earlier.

    Always loved this app. Recently the app now has a dark mode. I like having dark mode for my phone but I don't like how this app looks in it. Please give us the option of disabling dark mode for this app so that I don't have to take my phone completely out of dark mode.
  • Great App: Easy to Fix nagging Weakness Sep 12, 2018

    By wm_beville
    I’ve been using the web app / iPhone app since the beginning and have been patiently awaiting a fix for two limitations that have plagued us as commissioners. 1.) Why is it that I can change owners and DELETE THE WHOLE LEAGUE, but I can’t approve trades in the app? This is frustrating as it is the most time sensitive activity I use and most frequently used. 2.) What is the point of a keeper system that doesn’t let you have keepers in pre set rounds other than your first two picks? The developers have done an amazing job in a very complex draft pick trading and player trades, but this one missing feature recurs every year and makes our league consider flea flicker / yahoo. Hate to look a gift horse; the app gets better every year, but I can’t complain if I never bring it up.

    The things I like better on other sites. To be optional. Where you can choose to use as commissioner. Injury reserve option to save a bench spot. With the league getting more injury prone this is nice. The decimal system that yahoo uses is nice so that there are no or very rarely tied games. Also you could have more/better tie breaking options if that is not possible. Waiver rules are kinda basic and not really great. I have 16 team family league, I can speak for all of us on these ideas. We are considering using a different service next year. Positives I think the layout and overall performance/functionality of the application is great. Easy to navigate and use regardless of your technical expertise. The drafting and connecting with remote players drafting from out of town is good. I use my iPad application primarily and have had no problem getting around and using it. This will be our 7th year using this product as far use and functionality no problems. Some of us are good will computers and some are not, all have been comfortable using it. Just a few more of the options I listed above would make the experience much better. Thanks for time and listening. Thank Ben K
  • Does what it says but capable of more. Nov 6, 2017

    This app is nice. It does what it advertizes. The UI is easy to use for beginners and rarely crashes. There are just a couple things it could use to improve. Thumbnail size pictures of the players for people using iPhone 5, 5s, or iPhone SE sized phones. I think you should display jersey numbers of the player in their basic bio (next to their position and health status). And the last thing i noticed could use a tweak is to add a badge notification, and perhaps and homescreen notification when someone posts in the dang league smack board chat. No one uses it because they barely know its there and there is no way to know any one used it unless they obsessivly check it. 4/5 stars.
  • Great app with some flaws Nov 9, 2021

    By SpaceOut96
    1. It hasn’t been as much lately but 1 reoccurring thing is sometimes it won’t load. It’s not just my device, I play with friends and they experience the same issue as me. It happens randomly but could effect a last minute change if you can’t log in. 2. Lineups don’t really go as you put them. This isn’t really a big deal as it still plays the guys you want but big matchups with similar teams can’t put their best guys next to each other. For instance if I put Najee in my RB1 spot and Kamara in my RB2 spot, it will revert to putting Kamara in the RB1 spot and Najee in the RB2 spot. Again it’s very minor but would be nice to really see how your team stacks up
  • Great app!! Dec 5, 2018

    By Dabstarz
    Great app love the scoring system and will continue to use this one better then the nfl mobile and all other fantasy sites in my opinion but I do wish they had the option on the mobile device to change all of the settings in the league as manager. As the manager I would like to be able to change more options to the league then just the draft settings and edit team managers other then that it is thee best sports fantasy app out there I highly recommend it and would give it 5 stars if it had the option to edit more options as a manager in the league via mobile device
  • Annoying Glitch Dec 18, 2018

    By snajahahsheeheheheheh
    I use this app to play fantasy hockey and twice now in the last 3 days I have added a goalie who is starting on a given night to start in place of one who is not. It shows the move as going through, then I go to insert the goalie into my lineup and he is nowhere to be found. In addition, the goalie I just dropped is still in my lineup. I’ve wasted 3 of my 7 matchup acquisitions dropping and re-acquiring a goalie, and I get the same problem each time. I’m not sure if this is just an app problem because the issue occurs while using the website from my phone, but it’s very inconvenient.
  • Was amazing! Small changes have made it worse Oct 22, 2021

    By asdas
    I really hope someone that works on the app actually sees this and takes it to heart because I use the app every single day. My 2 biggest issues stem from changes that were made to the app in the prior months and the first of the 2 is the inability to uphold trades as an LM from the app. This used to be possible from the activity screen but it is no longer an option and forces LM’s to have to go on the website and uphold trades from there. The second issue is the “Interested In” section of all free agent waiver pools in each fantasy sport shows everyone how many people are interested in a player. I used this feature to track players that I was in fact, interested in, but I can no longer do that and have to keep a notes section open in my phone just so that other members of my league don’t see that someone else is interested in said waiver player. This was never an issue before but an update changed this so all I ask is for this to be changed back! Other than these 2 things this app is amazing and it is so easy to manage all fantasy sports in one place, please make these 2 changes it would mean a lot! Thank you!
  • Slow & buggy Oct 7, 2019

    By Civiehoo
    I can’t believe I’m writing this on a Tuesday morning, but the app is even slow & bombing out now... and it’s so much worse when it matters most, on Sundays. Lineup changes & research in the last hour before games is terrible, especially after NFL teams post final injury status... and all through the games. This has been happening for years, and my league only remains here because of inertia. We know Yahoo is better (our friends share this by showing us the app of course). On top of it, in game point totals have been wrong with frequency this year, so “projections” are effectively meaningless since, if they are sometimes wrong... they might always be... so they have to be calculated offline/manually to be certain (that’s assuming the stats are right...) I really hope ESPN adds a server or a dozen, especially something extra on Sundays, or I’m going to be pushing for the change in 2020 that we’ve wanted for years now. If the app cannot work well, ESPECIALLY as you do final prep to set lineups and track your teams’ progress on game day — the second best part of fantasy football after the draft — what’s the point in staying around?

  • ESPN MAILING IT IN ONCE AGAIN Oct 22, 2019

    By Mildred Moody
    Yeah I know it’s a free app but it’s as if they don’t even care to improve it with anything but an aesthetic upgrade every now and then. Sure a couple of functional changes happened last year but they didn’t make the app more user friendly. The stat research on the app is flat out garbage. And their draft room and preseason player breakdowns are a joke. For ex: 2020 B Ball app doesn’t have adequate or even remotely accurate stat projections. During my draft I wanted to see what Kyrie Irving’s projections for this upcoming season would be and they were obviously not his projections. Other starting caliber centers have zero RB as their per game projections. That’s ridicoilso. You’re ESPN. At least get that right. Also, as league manager I can’t do anything from my phone. I have to get on the full desktop to adjust settings in my league. Speaking of which, I have a friend who started his first league this season and made one mistake in his roster settings pre-draft. It’s impossible to adjust roster positions and such after the draft. Why is that so hard to do? Why not expand LM ability to sculpt each league to his or her liking? How much money does ESPN have? With all these advertisers I imagine their fantasy sports brings in some money. Maybe pay to really deliver an incredible app next year ESPN? Already looking forward to next season on a different app and this season hasn’t even started yet.

  • Streak for the cash needs improvement Feb 4, 2018

    By tebaseball1
    My dad and I have both had problems with making picks we don't want. When we are scrolling through the list of picks, one of our tap&drag actions on the screen will actually select a pick. I'm pretty sure when this happens, the animation to turn the pick yellow doesn't happen, or maybe it happens off screen because we are scrolling down the list. We weren't trying to select it, we were just trying to scroll. I'd really like it if this was fixed. Other than that, the app is pretty good. During fantasy football season it was a bit annoying that the app would load to streak for the cash and I would have to wait for the "loading picks" to finish before I could switch to the fantasy football portion and update my lineup. A bit stressful when it's 1 minute to kickoff and you want to make a change to your roster before the lineup locks. Other than that, pretty good app.
  • League manager tools Sep 2, 2021

    By Steve-o68
    My only true complaint, and it’s an annoying one, is that I don’t have all the league manager tools that are available to me from the normal browser on this app. This wouldn’t be too bad if it didn’t automatically send me to the ESPN fantasy app every time I tried to just use the browser. So if I ever need to do something from my phone, I have to delete the app, then go to the website, then fool around with making sure I’m not accidentally clicking the wrong thing, which happens a lot from the phone browser since it isn’t specialized for phone browsers. I either need to do it from my laptop or struggle through that whole process from my phone, and my laptop isn’t always available to me. If that is fixed, ESPN would easily take the cake as the best fantasy app
  • LM Tools Oct 5, 2020

    By Cody75575
    As a career fantasy player, ESPN has been the go to for my 6 year and running friend league. It’s been just fine and it’s the system I’ve gotten used to over the years. My biggest gripe with the app (as the commissioner of my league) is that the full LM tools palette is explicitly excluded from app. Normally this is a mild annoyance having to switch to your browser on your phone to use LM tools, but somewhere in the updates between the 2019 season and the 2020 season, ESPN has added the “convenient” feature of force opening the app anytime you tap fantasy on the espn website. This effectively makes LM tools inaccessible on mobile devices. The only way to work around this is to delete the app and then safari (or chrome, etc) can’t force open your app. Simple fix idea: add LM tools to the app.
  • Slow and Clunky Oct 26, 2017

    By littledietz
    Have played ESPN Fantasy Sports for 10+ years, including Streak for the Cash, where I’ve made well over 5,000 picks. Love SFTC due to its ease of play, and fun concept. However, when ESPN decided to switch from its stand-alone app for SFTC to the ESPN Fantasy App, I have felt like quitting numerous times. It takes two to three times longer to play, the app crashes constantly for me, and it looks way worse. I’m still playing because I love the game, but each time the app crashes I love it a little less. My SFTC days are numbered, and that’s completely because of the new app. If you care about those that play (and I know you’ve heard countless number of people complain about the new app), then at least consider going back to the old app. Don’t be stubborn just to try and prove a point. Actually listen to your customers for once.
  • Decent, but needs work Jan 3, 2021

    By justinhasnolife
    I’ve been using Fantasy for a little under a year now, and I’ve enjoyed using it but it really needs some work done on its interface. Here are some problems I’ve found: 1) It takes a really long time to load 2) The live play-by-play (at least for Football) is horrible, as it always shows a bunch of wrong things in terms of what team is being shown, what is happening, etc. 3) Pretty often it will just say that it isn’t available even if I have full bars or wifi (or even both). 4) The interface from what I’ve observed is lacking in good design 5) I don’t know if anyone else is having this problem or not, but for me (at least in the football section) the IBM Watson trades are horrendous. Some of the most glaring issues are such as it gives previous trades back to me that I’ve already declined several times, and it always gives me really unrealistic and bad trades. Like trading my best player for a kicker or defense. Really bad stuff. I hope that you look into these issues more and take my advise seriously. If two or more of these are looked into in the near future, I’ll definitely change my review, but for the time being, I’m leaving ⭐️⭐️⭐️.

  • Last Update Broke It Sep 27, 2019

    By CalvinBDaG
    I don’t know what happened with the latest update, but the latest update has broken the app in so many ways. First off, when you click the app to open it for the first time, the app takes literally 3 lifespans to stop loading and actually load up, but if you don’t want to wait to die, be reborn, die again, and repeat 3 more times, then you have to close the app and quickly reopen it, so that it hopefully loads up correctly the 2nd time. *NOTE: You’d have to repeat this process over and over until it actually loads up correctly and let you fiddle with your fantasy sports lineups and whatnot!* Secondly, when you are FINALLY able to actually access the app and make changes to lineups and things, the app completely runs slower than a turtle in a 5K charity walk! It takes literally over 60 seconds sometimes to make even 1 player swapping change in lineups. Third and finally, even if you have deleted and redownloaded the app, THE SAME PROBLEMS STILL PERSIST!!!

  • Holy smokes these guys are brutal! Dec 5, 2018

    By Minesy7
    I gotta say, I am an avid Fantasy Hockey player and that sounds odd to some, but it’s fairly simple really. When I first started my league 5 years ago, this app was barely functional, all you could do was set your lineup on it, then they added waivers and stuff and they were actually doing a pretty decent job with the fantasy stuff. This year they updated the website and the app to look sleeker, and now it barley functions. I have complaints from long time members of my league about stats not loading right, schedule not loading, anything that can go wrong has. Also I am a member of a fantasy football league as well, which has had a issues through the season. I also would like to see User Trophies added back to Fantasy Hockey, or I may take my league and it’s 5 year history to yahoo next year, which would be a real shame. Fix your app, fix your website. Until then 2 stars.
  • Very very behind. Apr 4, 2021

    By Bosssssssssssssssssssss
    This will probably be my last season using this app for fantasy all of my football leagues have moved over for the SLEEPER app. The last thing that is holding me back is fantasy baseball. The app seems very slow when it comes the live updates.... I used to love being able to watch live pitches and it was accurate on time. The looks of the app are great but it lacks the accuracy and is just very very bad. I don’t know if it’s from me being more engaged with the fantasy sports more so than the average person. I don’t understand how the ball can be dropped on this one.... I’m locked in for the rest of baseball season and I hope it gets much better or my league will be moving to another platform. How this is rated 5 stars is crazy to me with the funding you have ESPN I expected better. I’d be more than willing to talk to a developer on specific issues and hep them out. Don’t get me started on the app for the iPad.
  • Ads cause it to crash Nov 22, 2017

    By Timbofosho
    Typical. A multi-million dollar enterprise (owned by Disney, no less) looks for another stream of nickels. The solution? Market an app to fantasy football players and do NOTHING to improve their experience. Instead, focus on FORCING users to watch more ads. ESPN’s focus on advertising revenue through an otherwise usable app means you’re going to see force closes during or after your ad watching experience (you know, the whole reason you downloaded the app? To get a constant sales pitch for irrelevant crap?). The last “update” introduced a thirty second app on startup with NO ability to exit. SOME UPDATE. Greedy jerks. I can’t even view player updates without advertisements shutting the app down. Focus on the user, not ways to make a few more pennies at their expense. A good company can balance the trade-off between revenue and experience well. ESPN doesn’t even try and the force close, app failures only make me want to stop trying with them.

  • Ads are ruining the experience. Oct 22, 2020

    By Angry tird burglar
    This is my second year playing fantasy. I actually don’t mind most of the interface, although some changes could obviously improve it. Notifications would be nice. When trades are offered, I have no way of knowing they’re there unless I tap on “Roster” and see a badge icon waiting for me. My biggest complaint is that the ads are too much. When there is an update on a player, I can opt to watch a brief segment on said player. Every video I try to watch, I’m met with the same exact irrelevant 30 second ad. I don’t mind watching the ads once or twice, since it’s a “free” platform and they need to make their money somewhere. The problem for me is when I want to watch 10+ player videos, and I’m met with the same, unskippable 30 second ad. After watching the ad, it should give you an option to skip the ad after 10 seconds. Even better, if you watch the ad once, maybe skip over the remaining ads for a certain amount of time? I know I’m asking Disney to give up their greed, in a time where they’re taking huge financial hits on multiple fronts, but there is no reason this app could not be the one fantasy app to rule them all. I firmly believe that with just a few changes to the app, they could really own the market with fantasy.
  • Fantasy Hockey Jan 31, 2021

    By David456712
    Espn should be embarrassed as how portly this app performs. It’s slow, info is unbelievably inaccurate and they continuously get starting goalie info wrong. Espn fantasy hockey also does a very poor job at keeping players info up to date and they make it extremely hard to run a fantasy league. There have been countless times where there are players who are injured that espn has not recognized as injured and have them as healthy. It’s pathetic I will be moving my league onto another platform for next season. Oh and the absolute worst thing is when you set your lineup and click save, it doesn’t even save the updated lineup. I’ve have this happen on 5 different occasions where team owners have messaged me saying they put certain players in their lineup and when they go check there lineup later that day, some or all of those players are on the bench, even when they put those players in their lineup and clicked the “save button”. If you couldn’t already tell this is a pretty serious league and ESPN is not equipped for real fantasy leagues and managers. Overall, espn is a NO GO for fantasy hockey. No way football is any better. If I could give it 0 stars I would.
  • There’s no way to communicate with other players! Apr 21, 2018

    By jdhommert
    This is the first review I’ve ever left in my life, just because this is so frustrating. If I want to make a trade there is zero way to just ask them hey who do you want for this guy? You don’t know who they value, who they want, where they want to upgrade so you’re left just sending random players/proposals. I tried attaching comments in a trade proposal only to find out that they don’t show up in the app or the email. If you try to post a message on the “talk smack” board, it doesn’t notify/alert or even put a little icon saying that someone posts something, so nobody ever checks it. I try to send a message directly to the person to talk smack, they get no notification. I post on the league message board, same thing. Unless you specifically go in and look at it, there’s no way to even know anything is there. I’m just trying to find a way to communicate with the other owners just to start a Facebook message or group but nobody even knows those messages are there. It looks like the default option for receive email is off too, because I had to toggle mine on, so I can’t even get a message to my commissioner. Talk about frustrating.
  • Garbage Nov 6, 2017

    By Hoke6
    Been playing FF for 15 years and this app is pretty bad. It’s better on the website but this is America we use our phones dude. But that’s not really that much better. You can only set your lineup for the current week starting on Tuesday. Why is that a thing? I mean basically Espn decided you can’t go on an 8 day vacation and if it is a 7 day vacation make sure you come back by the 1pm games cause otherwise you just left all the injured and bye week players in. Kinda ridiculous. It’s not all that user friendly or aesthetically pleasing to the eye but you can get around all that if they let you set a lineup besides this week. I do like that is doesn’t just volunteer “transaction trends” like the yahoo app does cause then you can make moves instead of others just being handed who to pick up, but that’s about the only thing it’s got better than yahoo. Yahoo shows stats of the opposing ranks and such. I like being able to use research and insight to decide who to get but I’m not gonna spend half my week researching cause you guys can’t just put rankings like the website has on the app. Kinda wish i could give zero stars.

  • Final straw? Quite possibly Sep 20, 2019

    By SpacemanSpiff80
    Every year, this app/ESPN Fantasy site in general somehow manages to be WORSE. First, it was only being offered half the league interface that continued to be available in a web browser, which was so unforgivably obtuse that it confounds the mind, made worse throughout all these years that it has never been corrected. But ESPN REALLY lost its way when the merger of all fantasy sports into one app happened. And we couldn’t fathom it would, that it even could, become worse. Yet, here we are, 2019, and every single year, you guys find some astonishingly unexpected way to muck it up further. This season, the most appalling slap in the face to your loyal users I’ve ever seen isn’t even within the app, it’s platform-wide: the deletion of league histories and the deletion of league trophies WITHOUT WARNING TO YOUR USERS. Disloyal. Disrespectful. Dishonorable. Despicable. Every year, our league debates leaving ESPN. Every year, support grows for finding a better service. This year, ESPN may have already secured the necessary votes for our league to go into 2020’s auction (our 12th year) elsewhere.
