Yahoo! Inc. kicks off the fantasy football season with new game features, mobile access, and Cleveland Brownsâ€™ wide receiver Braylon Edwards as Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football â€˜08 cover athlete. This yearâ€™s game gives fans new tools, including a new draft application with extensive player data and more personalization options. Fans will also have better access via Yahoo! Mobile, including the ability to manage their teams, receive player news and injury information, and make roster changes.
Fantasy football allows users to build a roster of professional football players, through drafts, trades and free-agent signings, and then watch as the team’s success is measured by the on-field statistics of the players. Yahoo! Sports has offered fantasy football for 11 seasons, and fans can register for this yearâ€™s game through October 17, 2008.
Fantasy football users can also get all the advice they need right before kick off from Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football Live, the original pre-game fantasy football webshow entering its third season.
