Default Fantasy League Comparisons

What does everyone think of the different fantasy sites?

Today I participated in both a Yahoo and NFL.com draft. Just about every aspect of the draft was better on NFL.com. The layout was better, player information was no comparison, and player rankings were better.

The thing Yahoo has is a working app. The NFL.com app doesn't work at all on Android (at least not on ICS or JB). Yahoo has a pretty good Android app. This is kind of surprising since NFL.com is the only Fantasy league I know of that has G+ hangout integration (which works pretty well).

What does everyone else think about the different leagues?

I love the fact that NFL has G+ integration, but like you said, that lack of a working app is lame. It does HAVE an app that works on ICS/JB, I use it, but it didn't include a drafting app.

I don't use Yahoo, but I did have an ESPN draft. I must say in terms of the draft center on the PC, ESPN blew NFL out of the water. The whole design aspect was much better, the way you searched for played, everything, ESPN did better. But, the app again is pretty lacking. Sure, it gets your info across but it looks... gross.

What NFL app works? The official one has never worked for me. A lot of other people have had problems also. The only reason I am even logged in is because I clicked on Fantasy in the NFL 2012 app and that automatically logged me into the fantasy app.

Interesting... It didn't work for me the first time I tired it, but it's been fixed since then.

I just tried clearing app date today, didn't work. Uninstalled and reinstalled, still doesn't work. I'm on stock JB.

ESPN fan for lifeeeeeeee, but I must say that NFL.com's style was very interesting to say the least. However, I must agree with mikal and say that ESPN's layout is the best of the bunch by far.
