ESPN Fantasy Football now available for all Windows Phones

Samsung Fantasy Football

The exclusive deal between ESPN and Nokia regarding the Fantasy Football app for Windows Phone has ended. If you own a Windows Phone you'll now be able to download the ESPN Fantasy Football app, regardless whether or not you're rocking a Lumia. The app enables you to manage fantasy teams and monitor performance with real-time FantasyCast scores and news.

Along with said management, you can also sit back, pull a cheeky pint and enjoy news, video highlights from ESPN and catch analysis from ESPN fantasy experts. If you subscribe to ESPN Insider you will be able to get personalized alerts, game predictions and ESPN PickCenter Plus recommendations for your line-ups. It's worth noting this app will only let you manage current teams.

You can download ESPN Fantasy Football from the Windows Phone Store. Thanks, John, for the tip!

ESPN Fantasy Football now available for all Windows Phones

Where did you "hear" that? Verizon has a partnership with the NFL so it wouldn't make sense for it to be available to all carriers.

"NFL Mobile does the work that was previously spread out between two apps — an NFL-built “cross carrier” app that provided scores, highlight clips and other goodies; and a Verizon-made app that gave the telco’s subscribers the chance to watch live games."
Thanks for the link. I see what's happening. The NFL wants more control and eyeballs on their product so they're breaking out of VZ's stranglehold. Interesting.

The app will be available across all platforms, from what I read. However, the live streaming of the night games, and NFL RedZone on Sundays is still exclusive to Verizon. One of the main reasons I won't switch carriers. Probably wouldn't have switched to WP without this app.

All i really want in an nfl app is highlight access...i watch most eagles games at home (please dont bash my team :/) streaming is cool but i dont need it. I just want access in a better native format

NICE!! im from newark DE... Cool to see fellow windows phone and eagles fan not the only one ^_^

I cheched with Yahoo a few weeks ago, they claim that they didn't have enough users with a need. But encouraged me to send a request and be persistent. So if u want the app like I do bomb them with requests.

Huge news❗❗ Big win❗❗... But, it was kind of expected from the Xbox One press event.. Awesome❗

There's a spheroid like ball and we do kick it occasionally (although if the commissioner has his way, there may not be much kicking in the future).

Is this the football that's not played with your feet or a ball?

There are numerous sports known as "football," including Association football, Rugby football, Australian Rules football, Canadian Football, American Football, etc.
To avoid confusion, the term "soccer" was coined in Britain in the nineteenth century to refer to the sport where players manipulate the ball with any body part other than the hands, in a largely futile attempt to move it between two goal posts.

I can only hope that CBS will come out with something better than their iOS fantasy football app.  I suffered through that last year and it was abysmal.  Honestly, I thought even the web portal on a desktop was pretty bad.  Both were in need of a major UI overhaul- perhaps this is where WP8 could be helpful.  :) 

Had it the moment it was available. Now, as my bench players score 20 more points then the guys I started, I have immediate ability to be mad at them all. Jerk Football players. They do it on purpose.

Now if ESPN can fix/improve their regular and add a CFB Live app.
Everyone harass the via email & twitter to demand full mobile support.

I'm just glad I can use it on my old LG Quantum.  It's nice when these apps work for all versions of Windows phone.

Used it last year.  I'd like to blame the app for not winning my league, but that wouldn't be the truth, the app is great.  Losing a chance at the playoffs because of a 56 yard field goal isn't great! 

Um....I must be missing something here. It lists the 2 ESPN leagues and my team names in both. When I chose one, all I get are League Overview, Message Board and League Settings. No rosters, add/drop management etc.

Lets get espn fantasy baseball now. How come msn doesn't make fantasy/sports apps for windows phone? I thought that was Microsoft's product?
