I’d like to start off my “best of” apps list with a drafting app from the NFL.com. The NFL Fantasy Cheat Sheet 2012 app is ripe with player rankings, a Value Based Drafting (VBD) algorithm, customizable stats for every NFL leagues, as well as full recommendations, latest player news, injury alerts, player statistics, keepers, and more to help you create your own custom drafts and rankings from your league’s scoring system.

It bases its evaluations on current stats and historical data (such as injuries) to create a number value for each player. So it’s a good tool to use before you make a player trade within your fantasy football league. My husband and his buddies use it to talk smack and trade using their T-Mobile Samsung phones.

Lastly, I wanted to include the ultimate manager app for football fans! The Fantasy Monster Pro – for Yahoo/ESPN/NFL.com football will help you manage every of your fantasy teams. That means it’s not just about football, but helps you manage your basketball, baseball, and hockey teams as well! It’s simple to use, just customize your lineups by dragging and dropping from the lineup editor, or use this tool to consult the weekly matches, stay on top of injury reports, learn about trades in real-time, and more!
