FantasyFootballNerd.com announced today that several of their most popular tools will begin supporting Yahoo private fantasy football leagues starting with the 2016 NFL season.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fantasy football players hosting their private leagues on Yahoo will now be able to take advantage of the Lineup Analyzer and Waiver Wire products from FantasyFootballNerd.com. Users can automatically import their Yahoo teams with a single click of a button in order to get starting lineup advice. Yahoo users can also now have Fantasy Football Nerd search the waiver wire options and identify players that should be picked up to improve their teams.
"Over the past two years, no other request has been repeated more often than this one. I'm excited that we'll finally be able to offer Yahoo private-league users the option of monitoring their rosters for inactives, alerting them of inactives via text or email, suggesting weekly starting lineups, and searching their league waiver wire every week for players who can improve their teams," said Joe Dyken, Founder and CEO of TayTech LLC - the parent company of FantasyFootballNerd.com. "Our development efforts mean that users will be able to import their Yahoo rosters regardless of whether their league settings are set to public or private."
In addition to the Yahoo integration, Fantasy Football Nerd (FFN) is happy to announce several new additions to the site in 2016. Dynasty fantasy football rankings, IDP (individual defensive players), and enhanced fantasy football auction values have been added. The FFN team has also enhanced the popular fantasy football Mock Draft tool to include an "experience level" option to better tailor the draft experience to the type of league. For example, an inexperienced league might place a higher emphasis on drafting quarterbacks, defenses, and kickers earlier than a more experienced league would.
With more than 1 million users expected to use the platform this season, Fantasy Football Nerd continues to increase market share in the competitive fantasy sports industry. Dubbed the "Cliff’s Notes of the Industry" by the Washington Post and the "best kept secret in fantasy football" by the New York Times, Fantasy Football Nerd has a slate of new enhancements scheduled for release prior to the NFL’s Week 1 kickoff.
