Smack Talk Season is Here!
2014 Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football Now Open
By Brandon Funston, Lead Fantasy Expert
The NFL draft is over, and training camps are right around the corner. It’s officially Smack Talk Season, and Yahoo Sports Fantasy Football is now open to give you everything you need to prepare for league domination.
Sign-up today and download the Yahoo Fantasy app for iOS and Android devices. Whether you’re attending graduations, weddings, or just hanging out at the beach, you can conduct mock drafts anytime, anywhere. A lot happened this offseason that you may have missed (where do you take the draft’s most talked about player?). Yahoo Sports Fantasy experts and NFL writers can help you track all the trends and transactions you need to be prepared.
And we have great new features in store this year. For the diehard fantasy fanatics, we’re introducing mobile auction drafts, in addition to the features you know and love like great tools, draft recaps, and player news streams.
Of course, Fantasy Football wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the commissioners who sacrifice their day jobs, friendships, sleep … you name it. We want to give commissioners the rewards and recognition they deserve, so stay tuned for some exciting news (including your chance to win a trip to the big game in Glendale!!).
Sign up today and show the world who is #1.

What does August mean to me? With my Cubs long gone (again), it’s time for training camp, preseason, mock drafts, sleepers and keepers… and Fantasy Football!
On August 24th, we’re teaming up with Buffalo Wild Wings, the official destination of Yahoo! Fantasy Football and best place to host every draft party, to create a new national holiday just for fantasy fans - “Buffalo Wild Wings and Yahoo Fantasy Football National Draft Day,” the first ever nationwide draft party and a celebration of our collective love for Fantasy Football.
So on the 24th, all Yahoo! Fantasy Football managers can go to any one of the participating 935 local Buffalo Wild Wings to get draft advice, some free swag, and enjoy some wings and beer - and draft their Fantasy Football teams. Whatever you do, don’t forget to make a reservation first, as seats will fill up fast. Leagues will receive draft kits that include coupons for $100 in free B-Dubs food at future visits, a championship brag flag and t-shirts (until they run out!). For those fans who are in the Dallas or Minneapolis areas, you’ll get to hang out with Yahoo! Fantasy Football leading experts Brad “Big Noise” Evans and Andy Behrens and pick their brains before you draft.
The entire celebration will be hosted by Fantasy Football experts Brandon Funston and Kay Adams from the Yahoo! Sports studio and will be streamed to every Buffalo Wild Wings location as well as to Yahoo! Sports’ 50 million sports users 12-2 PM, CST.
So, to get into full-on fantasy mode, be sure to grab our new app, watch our new shows, check out Commissioner Appreciation Days, enter Name Time Decision (do you have the best ever fantasy team name?) and never forget Legendary Moments in Fantasy Football.
Get to it – This is YOUR Year - And Happy National Draft Day!
