Yahoo’s Daily Fantasy Sports app allows almost all of the functionalities featured on the main site all in one easy to operate package available for Android and iOS. It is also the same app for season-long Yahoo fantasy leagues, making it incredibly convenient for anyone already hosting a league on Yahoo.
It is an incredibly easy to use app, and it looks great too! It’s smooth, user-friendly and just as simple to use as the desktop version. Tabs at the bottom allow you to quickly flip between the contest lobby, current contests entered and more. The bottom left also has a button to easily flip between Yahoo’s daily fantasy and any season-long fantasy leagues you may be in.
While there may be less sports represented than some of the larger sites, Yahoo offers contests for a variety of sports. From MLB to soccer or NFL to golf, Yahoo has all of the main sports covered.
Once you’ve signed up for Yahoo Fantasy, here’s the types of contests you’ll find:
Large Guaranteed Prize Pool Tournaments (always referred to as GPPs): These contests tend to have the most eye-catching top prizes and total prize pools, but often require fending off thousands of other players to win a top prize. Yahoo also calls these contests “Guaranteed to Run,” since the payout for the contest is fully set whether the tournament fills or not.
Head-to-head games: One on one battles between yourself and another DFS player.
Double Ups or 50/50s: Close to half the field doubles their money.
Multipliers: Contests where a percentage of those that enter will win the same flat prize, usually to the tune of 2x, 3x or 5x their entry fee.
Leagues: Multi-round tournaments where the final score is the cumulative score from all rounds.
Simply, Yahoo entered the fantasy sports game with an established reputation. Then, Yahoo entered the DFS industry having laid the groundwork of a solid season-long product. With long-term established credibility and a high reputation, they have put together their DFS product in a way to not tarnish that. It is user-friendly in every aspect, from the usability of the site, to the contest types, to the ease of access, to the customer service.
Yahoo also remains as a smaller DFS site, meaning there is less top-tier competition to play against. It is a great site for new and experienced DFS players alike.
