ESPN Fantasy Football app in the works

If you're into ESPN's fantasy football, you will be pleased to hear that the ESPN Fantasy Football app is headed to the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Not much is known on the details but the app will feature fantasy team management, live scoring, news from the NFL, tweets from fantasy experts, and messaging boards.

This will be the first year ESPN's Fantasy Football app will be offered for Windows Phone and expected release is mid-August. Once we spot the app in the Marketplace, we'll let you know.

  • To quote The Jets' Bart Scott, "Can't wait!"
  • I reallly, really hope I can get this in Canada, it will help me defend my title from last year :)
  • Hell ya!
  • Boxing and MMA too, please!
  • UGH! Me and my friends use for fantasy football. I was really hoping for an App for that!
  • I use both but prefer fantasy...Before we get too worked about an fantasy app, how about an official app!!!
  • I  definitely hear you on that... MLB AND NBA can take the time to make one I do not understand why the NFL is taking so long... I would think they it would be one of the first to put an app to the platform.
  • I agree
  • I use both too, but prefer Any fantasy app is awesome though.
  • hopefully they'll also release one for fantasy hockey
  • Yes!  I have been waiting for this app ever since I started playing fantasy football three years ago.  Hurry ESPN!  I need this app to occupy my micromanagement time.
  • ESPN Scored a tackle for loss as a sack last year which lead to a tie between me and another guy for the championship. And, due to tiebreakers, I won my league. But, of course a tackle for loss isn't a sack, and come Thursday, yes a full five days later (Saturday game), the scoring was updated to reflect this. I lost a point giving the other guy the win. Bah. That being said... Getcha popcorn ready.
  • Yes!
  • Very exciting!
  • Plan on getting WP8 as soon as its launched (moving over from android and all its schnanagins). So pumped about this app cause we just switched from FOX Sports for FF to ESPN, and this app will make life MUCH easier.
  • I have been waiting for what seems like forever for this app. This is good news I play and run 2 ESPN leagues perfect.
  • Yes
  • Doesn't matter to me, but my best friend is big into fantasy baseball, and the iPhone app is one thing he is missing on his windows phone. Hopefully that follows...
  • Use yahoo so im screwed.
  • Fantasy Ferrit is an AWESOME metro styled app for yahoo Fantasy Football.
    Do it... you wont!
  • Fantasy Ferrit does the job for yahoo leagues.
  • Great. The 1st official fantasy football app. But after trying all of the FF sites wins. Although, I want an app, NFL just need to get the mobile site working first.
  • And ESPN radio app is next, please. Pumped by this ......
  • I use tunein radio app and pinned the Espn station but yea an official
    Radio app is appreciated to go to specific shows
  • Same here... I have pinned my local espn radio 98.7 and wfan 660 to my start screen... The beauty with metro is people thinks it is a separate app.
  • You are in luck: ESPN Radio for Lumia devices
  • Heck yeah...been waiting for that. Hope yahoo and cbssports get on it too
  • How about an official Yahoo! Fantasy Football App...
  • UPDATE: The iOS and Android/Kindle Fire versions of ESPN Fantasy Football have been released, but no sign of the WP version. The ESPN Mobile Products page now looks like this:

    With the Lumia 900 front-and-center. The button on the side says "Coming Soon" so hopefully we all get it before September 5th.
  • Looks like it is out (may be a Marketplace delay) but it is a Nokia exclusive.
