Freakin' Awesome! My biggest problem with Fantasy is I can never find the time to go on and sub players, trade, etc. This is going to be great.

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up. Trying to do this in Safari is cumbersome at best.

So the espn fantasy app is live, but at $4.99 and still has ads. Also, i cant get it to show anything about my team. just shows fantasy news and nfl game scores/upcoming games. so not sure about it yet.

nevermind, rookie mistake. Must log in with your espn user name not your email address. Now that i have my team working, the app looks good. Only good for this year, and has ads, but can live with them.

$5 is a little steep, but the App is first class. They also do push notifications when a player on the bench can do better than one live, or other situations. Injuries and Hourly updates with scores.

Awesome!

Do you have to have an ESPN team? Or could I download it and set a line-up with it giving me push updates for just individual players?

Any app that does that?

The push notifications are based on your team. So only injured players on your team (or opponents maybe) will be sent. You can get scoring for NFL on SportsTap, but I don't think there is an app yet for individual player push notifications.
