ESPN Fantasy Football 2010
5 out of 5
Tap into your ESPN account on the go, tweak rosters, handle trades, adjust lineups, and more.
No support for live drafts, free agent player sorting is weak, and no push notification support for the latest info, points scored, etc. (Rumor has it that push notifications are close at hand in an upcoming update.)
Takes the ESPN mobile website to the next level, offering well-organized menus, rosters, player data, and the latest scoring information via a fresh app experience.

Tens of thousands of rabid fantasy football fans rely on ESPN’s popular fantasy football website (standard and mobile) to set up their teams, make trades, and more. ESPN fanatics packing an Android-powered device should run, not walk to the marketplace and pick up the official ESPN Fantasy Football 2010 app.
Logging into your ESPN account is a snap. Once logged in, you can view your team(s), pull up rosters and make swaps, adjust lineups as soon as players are sidelined by injuries (or just sucking out on the field), view current scores, and handle trades.
In the background, ever-present data is just a finger-press away, including schedules, message boards, team information, standings, and more.
Where the app really shines is real-time roster management. Controls next to each player make it easy to swap in newcomers as needed; opening each player card displays current stats and injury data all in one place.
You’ll never hit the virtual field with an injured player (or one on a bye week!) ever again.
Sure, most of this can be handled via your laptop at the bar on gameday, or via your mobile Web browser.
But the layout, functionality, and user-friendly design of this app will win you over, save you time, and keep you at the top of the leaderboards.
