Yahoo recently announced that it is launching a completely redesigned Fantasy Sports app for the iOS and Android platforms. The update comes just in time for the fantasy football season, which is on the horizon at the moment. Among the many changes, the redesigned app now lets you sign up for a league and draft players from your iPhone or iPad. Thereís even some mock drafting help built-in to prepare you for when itís your turn to pick your roster.
Furthermore, all of the fantasy football features will be available for other fantasy sports on the network as well. In an attempt to spread the word of the redesigned app, Yahoo has enlisted the help of J.J. Watt to get people interested in trying the app. Those of you who are interested can watch the trailer below:
