NFL Fantasy scores to the .00 decimal which is a better representation of score than just rounding like ESPN does. I have a league in each, so I understand trying to dumb it down but I think just including that extra decimal place would make scores and projections better and more accurate. That, plus not changing matchups over until Tuesday or Wednesday is kind of annoying, it should be done Tuesday morning so we can preview matchups easier viewing our team rather than having to go through the league scoreboard. But these are minor things that could be fixed in an offseason update. The worst part of the experience is FORCED VIDEO ADS. It’s not my preference to have a commercial latch onto my screen while I thought I was supposed to be seeing my matchup. The app made it clear that this would only be done once today. If it needs to be done, how badly does ESPN need the money? The news features, videos and lots of Matthew Berry are all good things but they’re all made cheap by including forced commercials in the app. Our league will likely be moving to NFL or Fleaflicker in the offseason because their apps don’t force video ads onto the screen.
This app has been quite slow and buggy especially recently, and drains battery power more than most apps on my iPhone 6. It’s been crashing a lot since updating to iOS 11 and getting the latest update of the app. Despite its shortcomings I’ve been using it for at least 3-4 years, since I’m an avid fantasy sports player. I’ve seemingly always had issues with it’s various incarnations of design and interface, not to mention ESPN’s terrible default league settings for football, baseball and basketball w/ short benches and lack of IR/DL spots - but that’s a subject for elsewhere. The app should have all of the same management capabilities as on their website, but it hasn’t ever. People probably use the app for team management more often than the actual website these days. It should be as capable and user friendly because of this, but it isn’t. I also play fantasy sports on Yahoo!, which in my experience has far superior and more enjoyable leagues and app. I will still use this ESPN app despite my frustrations with many aspects of it, because I like to draft and have teams on several sites/apps. I at least hope the developers continue to try to improve the design of this app and the general user experience within it.
I have been playing fantasy sports for many years now and by far ESPN has the worst site ever. Idc about the app I mean for fantasy baseball and football it is terrible. For baseball u can only have 1 player on the DL and 3 bench players on your roster. This is horrible if u actually pay attention to it and want to play because u cannot change starting pitchers or players that do not have a game the day u r playing. For both sports the standings r screwed up. I have more points than a guy in my league and we have the same record but I am below him in the standings because he has had less "points allowed" than I have. So espn how am I supposed to have a defense in fantasy that stops the other team just curious I kinda want to know. I'm just glad the playoffs didn't start this week because I wouldn't have just left a review on the App Store I would have emailed someone to complain about this crap. I'm sure the ones with fantasy hockey and basketball have problems that I wouldn't understand with their teams but I don't have a fantasy basketball or hockey team and if I did it wouldn't be with espn. After this year I have decided I WILL NOT be playing any fantasy sport with espn next year and the years after unless these necessary changes r made. Ps If u want professional fantasy sports I recommend using yahoo they have been my favorite site to use
I’ve been playing SFTC since it began in 2008. When they decided to retire the Streak app, and add Streak to their new all-encompassing Fantasy app, it’s been bad. For starters, several message boards for props are down on a daily basis. You have to go to the espn Streak mobile site to look at the message board. What’s the point of the app if I have to use the mobile site? In order to see all matchups for a particular day, you have to click the “See all matchups” link. Let us see all the matchups without having to click another link to see them; instead of just seeing the forced espn props that they choose for us to see. I know one extra click is not a big deal, but it could be the difference between getting a prop in before it locks. Within the last few weeks, within comments on the message boards, the links to “load more comments” don’t work. Every time I try to load more comments, it just spins and never shows them. The message boards used to have some decent information and conversation from members. When they changed it to Facebook only members who can chat, it ruined the message boards. Tonight, I tried to post a comment twice on one of the hockey games, and it didn’t register my comment. Either go back to a SFTC dedicated app that works or fix this dreadful Streak part of the Fantasy app.
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.
