ESPN Fantasy Football, the number one most popular fantasy football game, has made the 2021 season even more fun and enjoyable to play for new players and hardcore veterans alike. With more enhanced game play and expanded content for every fan, ESPN Fantasy Football is available on both the ESPN Fantasy App and ESPN.com, with exclusive, premium content for ESPN+ subscribers and the fantasy sports industry’s most comprehensive collection of expert analysis, news, statistical data, and tools across app, web, television, and audio to help all fans be more competitive in their leagues.

  • The ESPN Fantasy App, the top fantasy app on iOS and Android devices, makes playing ESPN Fantasy Football easy, fun and fast, providing more information and insight for fans than any other fantasy football game.
  • Fans on the Fantasy App can sign up, create or join a league, customize their league and draft, make trades, add players, follow matchups with real-time scoring, and see expert analysis and video.
  • This includes the ability to stream all of ESPN’s Fantasy shows along with live events directly in the Fantasy app.
  • The Fantasy App also allows fans to play the entire suite of ESPN Fantasy games, including fantasy sports like Fantasy Baseball, Basketball and Hockey, and free-to-play prediction games like Streak, UFC Pick’em, Pigskin Pick’em, and special contests for major sports events.
