Sara-e fort hood - Best Fantasy App of the Top 5
I’ve been a fantasy manager for 20 years on just about every platform but this one is by far the best because it makes the league more communal compared to others. It makes the games more fun and there are 2x-3x more trades in my Sleeper leagues than any of the others. The AI mock drafts are pretty handy too.
The one drawback is you’ll probably have to do your research elsewhere since they aren’t directly connected to any of the large sports platforms like ESPN, CBS, NFL, or Yahoo are, but if you use those as your primary source for articles then I’ve just identified why you haven’t won your league in awhile.
Minor fix suggestion: in the mock drafts for Dynasty, we have the option to set the player pool to Rookies only, or the entire player pool (including players already on teams). It would be nice if there was an option for “all available” which would include the Rookies and only the players who remain on the waiver wire. Weird request, but some dynasties lock the waivers in the off season until after the draft, and include those vets in the draft pool.
An1836 - (Almost) The best app for fantasy football
Having used sleeper for a few months now, I have to say it’s an amazing app. The news updates are super handy, the in app league chat is amazing since you don’t have to use another app for talking to league mates, the amount of options available in terms of league settings is amazing and just makes playing on this app more fun than basically every other. It does have a few issues that seem to be present on every app like scores maybe taking a bit to catch up, but it is never really a big issue. The only change I would like to see that would make this app worth five stars is a quality of life one. When viewing your team on the app I don’t see any way to get all (if not most) of your team and their scores in your matchup on the screen at once. Although I do sometimes enjoy the added info and the field position indicator under the player names, I would really love a compressed view where it would hide/get rid of the on field indicator and possibly their game stats for the week. Sometimes I just want to log in and see how all my players did compared to my opponents without having to scroll and dig for certain players. Maybe there could be a button or something similar that says “more matchup info” that would toggle this off and on. Other than this, I don’t really have any complaints about the app and think it is probably the best app for fantasy football currently available.
Killersam775 - Great but some stuff is needlessly complicated
I want to start by saying that I think this app is great and my favorite fantasy app to use. Having said that though there are some things that make it needlessly complicated and could make things even better
1) Filling Leagues - I get the idea behind why there isn’t really just like a list of public leagues to join, but there needs to be. The idea being that they want leagues to be filled by people and their friends but this just isn’t always possible. There’s forums to post a league in but your post falls back and you need to repost frequently. There needs to just be a list of public leagues that people can sort by league type, paid or free, size, etc.
2) League Formats - There should be presets for the different types of leagues. There should be presets for redraft, dynasty, best ball and guillotine. It can get kind of complicated especially for first time commissioners to set this stuff up and presets for these league types would be great.
3) Payment - They probably don’t want to deal with it but there should be an in-app payment system for paid leagues. Currently outside sites like leaguesafe need to be used which is ok but doing it straight through the app again cuts down on complexity for first time commissioners.
AustinTheMaleNurse - Please read
Every year I do a league in every major platform. NFL, ESPN, Yahoo!, CBS, and Fantrax are all sites in which I am in a league in. Up until 2 years ago Yahoo! was hands down the absolute BEST fantasy site/app out there I knew of. Everything I needed was there and it was a night and day difference between its competitors. That is however, until I discovered Sleeper. I don’t know how I stumbled upon the app 2 years ago. I have been blown away ever since. This app not only gives me the most up to date info on everything fantasy football wise it also has the cleanest and most crisp feel to it. Everything is so smooth with the app and the details that they go into on the matchup screen and my team page are second to none. Using other sites and apps almost makes me feel like I’m using a computer from 1997 in how much more cluttered they are and not as up to date. Honestly making the move and bringing my league to be on the sleeper app has to be the best decision I have made fantasy football wise!
Aqworlds12345676 - LCS fantasy review (so far)
So far my experience with the app hasn’t started fully tell the actually season starts. I’m loving everything about it from the drafting to the amount of setting you can costumes. I just have a few suggestions that would possible be a game changer for the LCS point of view
1) there should be teams you pick (for extra points) like if the team wins or if the team losses or how many towers the team gets, ETC there a lot opportunity wise you could do with adding teams like how you choose a teams defense in Fantasy NFL.
2) shouldn’t rift Herald (Shelly) be worth some points getting? As well as getting multiple barons possible?
3) A bench feature would be nice where you could choice up to 2-3 anyrole/ any team just there in case you need to swap a player before it starts or something or if you just want to hold a player to see how he dose for a few games.
4) this ones a long shot but worth a suggestion
Would it be possible to combine the LCS/LEC together for more player selection? I understand why you split the two up, But for people who have 10 or more people joining there draft just thought it should be a setting thing you could do. (Of corse there’s other leagues you could add if necessary as well like the LCK or LPL, ETC)
Over all the app look good in my eyes just like to see more opportunities to really dive deep into the LCS fantasy. Thank you for this app I’ve been needing this!
Lordofdadflys - Good could be great
First off, let me say that this is one of the better fantasy apps I’ve used. Very intuitive app. I love that they have a fantasy players history in terms of points and position finishes. However, I will say it is kinda buggy. For example, in fantasy basketball on sleeper, a league member was able to play someone, trade them to another team, and be able to put the player he acquired in his lineup. Doesn’t really make sense to be able to keep the points and get a new player from a trade and play them. Another league member in fantasy football played Ertz this week against the Buccs, and when the AZ game started Ertz had 0 pts. What sleeper needs is to fix the bugs in trades, allow league standings to be based of head to head and not just points for, lastly, it would be cool if they added videos to the player news section - something similar to how ESPN has highlights of Matthew Berry for certain players. Maybe they’ll do that now that Fantasy Pros will be providing news for them now.
Rystuv - Best Fantasy App out there, but still waiting for a few features
I have used this app exclusively for my fantasy leagues now for about 3 years and I love this App! It does everything I need in a fantasy football app it provides great information on players and the interface is the amazing. I enjoy the characters that they use as it makes the experience feel more interactive and the customization available for scoring, roaster sizes, etc. is second to none.
I am still waiting for a a few key aspects to this App though, the two I am really waiting for are auction drafts and a tablet App. I have herd for a couple of years now that Sleeper is going to implement auction drafts and each year I am left disappointed. When it comes to a tablet App I have not herd anything new on that front and am still waiting for more information.
This App is still amazing regardless of the few shortcomings it may have.
ChefBrendan - Too many bugs
I love the app don’t get me wrong but there are extremely frequent bugs, I have the app on auto update but like today all my leagues are showing no assigned rosters and we are less than 2 weeks from the start of the season. Other issues have been projected points were all inaccurate for IDP players. Also with the trending function it will show up or down, but then click on the player and the last update and news on the player could be months old. It’s training camp yet many players still have latest news listed from free agency or last season. I love the lay out and functionality but player info, point issues and continuous bugs make me hate this app at times. Yahoo and NFL have much better and up to date info on players. However sleeper does have the absolute best trade function out of all the platforms. This could easily be the best of the best but it’s just not there yet. I shouldn’t have to do an online search for latest news on players. Kendrick Bourne is had an upward trend for 2 or 3 weeks but as of yesterday the lastest news on him is 2 or 3 months old.
Chill75 - Way more complicated than it needs to be
This is one of the least user-friendly apps I’ve ever encountered. For one thing, there is more than one menu. Plus, there are no indicators for where those menus are located. The mascots are cute, but they take up a lot of real estate on a mobile screen which means that the target area for any action is really small. For reference, I am using an iPhone X S, and I don’t have Andre the Giant hands.
I also find that it is really slow to update which wouldn’t be too bad if it didn’t display inaccurate information while it is updating.
I am not the commissioner of my league, so I can’t speak to that side of the app. Our draft did not go well because the app wouldn’t let us start it, and 12 millennials couldn’t figure it out. We wound up having to tell the commissioner who we wanted to draft and he made the changes. It’s a good thing we took screenshots of the board because the whole draft was lost and the commissioner had to rebuild everyone’s teams anyways.
I’m pretty sure my league is going to switch to a different app next year. This one is a nightmare.
Jeffsemple - The future of Fantasy Gaming is here.
There are stories of people who used calculators and newspapers to first compete in head to head fantasy football. It then evolved to spreadsheets and emails. Finally we were introduced to 21st Century gaming technology with smart interactive websites and apps.
What is the future for the upcoming generation of Fantasy gamers? Sleeper. An app that is intuitive to the gaming experience of fantasy competition has arrived. It’s clear the developers have valued their users feedback as well as investigated what would attract new players. I’m all in on Sleeper. It has made the game of Fantasy Football more than watching numbers on a Sunday. Sleeper is our arena, our front office, our barstool, our locker room, and our playground for the game we all love to play. Move your leagues over immediately. Welcome to the future.
Cubesolver541 - App Tries to be Too fancy
Please make it clearer how to add a second bracket in March Madness. Our whole group had trouble figuring out you had to swipe the bracket image to create a new one. Just make a small plus icon on the right of the first bracket you create or imply you can swipe left and right with a micro animation. The little tiny dots and tiny tiny plus icon is impossible to see. You have to accidentally swipe to figure out that you can add another bracket. Also please add a Full Desktop version next year. When we are doing research and such, would be way easier to just fill out the bracket in the browser. Another issue is getting into the settings. When you are a few screens into the settings you can’t quickly return to the Home Screen at all. Needs a small home icon or dock on the bottom of the screen to navigate back to the main bracket and pool page. App could be great but the developers really need to do some UX research and testing. App is actually overly complicated and confusing.
CoolCaptain12 - Like The App A lot
My first time doing Dynasty League on here but second time overall using Sleeper and I like it a lot…. So much so that the only other platform I’m using is Yahoo bcuz it’s a family league not run by me…. My only complaint is the ergonomic compatibility… I feel like I’m on Tinder with all the swiping I have to do lol. Is possible to implement a drop down menu to alleviate the excessive swiping…. I think that would turn my really like to love also can we possibly get recaps of the week similar to what Yahoo does after every week…. That’s it
Next issue. A player in my league was able to add a player that has already played and pickup someone that has not played. Also those who over drafted and weren’t forced to move players before they could do other transactions. Is this a glitch or something that has always been able to be done. As the commish I have not touched any settings to allow that to happen…
Bradybehrend - Great, but doesn’t quit fit my league (yet)
I really like the feel, look, and function of this fantasy app. If you are making a NEW league and draft online, this app is the one for you. I would have liked to see a feature to add “league history” to the app so I can bring my season league and winner history over to this new app. Another thing I’d like to see added is a way to add “offline draft results”. The app my league currently uses is the NFL fantasy app, and we like it because I can submit the draft offline. We have some no-so-tech inclined people, and it’s easier for us to all get together and draft in person and have me put the results in by hand. If this feature was added, we might switch to this app. However, if BOTH are added, we would 100% switch our league to this app. (P.S. if either of these features exist, and I just couldn’t find them, please let me know!!)
LCS>Worlds - Amazing
Giving me and the boys a chance to play LCS Fantasy this past split was amazing. We had a blast from start to finish. It encouraged us to all get together on discord every weekend and watch some games together like a football Sunday with your local friends. Wouldn’t change a thing but would like to see two things added:
1. A trophy case on your profile(so a profile in general) to show off your weekly trophies, such as lowest points in a win and all those, as well as a gold silver and bronze for the playoffs.
2. We decided to have everyone buy in $5 before the draft and winner take all so just having the option on the app to have a buy in before the season starts would be awesome. Especially since we all enjoyed it so much we are upping our buy in for next split
CykoPathe - Great iOS app - horrible desktop/“web app”
Sleeper is an outstanding fantasy service. Amazing information, great user interface, I’ve integrated all of my leagues here. Could not be happier except for ONE detail: the desktop site: this was recently updated after months of hype for a far superior product. The chat is incredibly small and what little bit appears cannot move, be expanded, or anything a typical user might want. It is beyond frustrating. Enlarging images within this comically small chat means you cannot see 25% of the image. The chat should have an option to expand to a full column/panel. ALSO, NBA functionality has been non-existent on the desktop version and it’s ridiculous that they’re paying a web developer to not only make their UI worse, but not even make NBA functional. Truly ridiculous. If you’re looking to do just fantasy football and predominantly on your phone, 1000% recommend
EzRylder - So far so good but
Ok, so this app looks amazing. As commish running a Dynasty on ESPN has been tough, no pick trading has been something I been wanting but never delivered. Now this app has that but I wanted to bring over the current rosters we have to this app without having the trouble of making everyone re-do the draft. We are 4 years in and nobody wants to switch teams. I’d love to make the switch but I don’t know if everyone else in my league will be motivated to make the switch with having to do the draft all over. Also, an offline draft would be good because that’s how we been running our rookie drafts because some teams need to be in the draft for 5 rounds where as other teams only need 1-2 rounds in rookie drafts. Just a few concerns. But overall, if I ever was starting a new league, I’m starting it here.
NateTheGreat35 - Best platform. Light years ahead!
Sleeper is easily the best platform for fantasy football. I moved my league from ESPN to Sleeper last year. Myself and the league as a whole were completely blown away with how amazing, thorough, and efficient Sleeper is. Every feature is easy to use and find. Nothing is confusing about the application. Although there are annoying bugs from time to time, you can chat with live support and they always reply within a couple minutes.
I was extremely excited to see other fantasy sports (basketball, March madness, etc.) be introduced to the app, but then COVID-19 killed that.
I do not know how people still use ESPN, Yahoo or another platform. Give Sleeper a try and you will not be disappointed!
The only feature I wish Sleeper had for fantasy football was the ability to individually track each player’s transactions between the owners. For example, you can see when they were drafted, each time they were put on waivers/claimed from waivers, involved in a trade, etc. Hopefully someday they add this!
Thanks for everything Sleeper team!! I am already addicted to fantasy football and you made it even worse!
Xillist - Mediocre at best
I’ve done fantasy sports for years across multiple platforms and this is my first year using sleeper. It has all the standard features. But some issues I have with this app is the UI and how unintuitive it is to use.
Swiping left or right to see player transactions and free agency? No indicator on how to do basic actions like add or drop a player easily. The fact that I cannot edit my line up for future weeks because this week has games active makes no sense. Simply swapping out a player on IR for a player put on IR was not allowed due to ‘games in progress’. Why? They have no connections to each other. The changes were for the next week... also IR slot changes were with players on the bench, not even in the starting line up. Little details like this goes a long way when you are actively playing the FA pool and trying to clear up space due to injuries.
UberEatsUser - Vastly disappointing
I switched over to this app because I heard it was by far the best fantasy app. I figured I’d try it, and I have to say I don’t get the hype at all.
The UI is pretty glitzy but can also be a bit confusing. But the part that really annoys me is the updates and news is awful. Updates always come late, even well after other prominent sources have broken player/team news. The game tracking often lags, and there’s no good way to track a game live.
On top of this, I’ve found the insight to be awful. I don’t rely much on fantasy app insight, but it’s annoying to have your app consistently tell you things like a guy is the new starting RB and projected 12 points and then in reality he’s still a backup and gets a few carries. Not sure why, but their intel seems way off, their projections don’t make sense, and even though this doesn’t matter the win % is a nonsensical stat that just seems to flip from 10% to 90% depending on who scored the last point.
I know this is the “hot new thing” because it has a fancy interface and is an exclusively fantasy-oriented app, but honestly it’s just not that great when it comes to practicality. If I have to go to other sources to track games, get basic injury updates, and look at things as simple as who a new starter might be in case of injury, then what’s the point of this app?
ChemistryWiz17 - Best Fantasy App
I have been the commissioner of a dynasty league that has used various different platforms, including ESPN, Yahoo, and NFL, and I can say without a doubt that sleeper is superior in almost every category. Many of the options they make available for various types of leagues are immense and are not available on many other platforms, especially not the free ones. From trading rookie draft picks during the season to multi team trades to its interactive and helpful customer service, our league has never regretted switching to this up and coming fantasy app/website.I would recommend for any league to at least try out the app (which they even allow commissioners to get a preseason trial run of all the apps features) and see if it’s for you.
Kohmando - Best Fantasy Football App. Period!
I’ve used Yahoo, ESPN, and the NFL apps and they all pale in comparison to the Sleeper App. The news alert from team and player updates is the best in the business. The chat channels to discuss trades, waiver wire, and the draft is active and helpful. The ability to do multiple team trades is amazing. The only 2 things on my wishlist as an update is the ability to counter-offer and includes trades notes/comments like the Yahoo platform allows and an improvement on the Watchlist/Wishlist for Autodrafting. One team who autodrafted in our league got 5 WRs for the first 5 rounds. Some autodrafted teams were well balanced while others lacked any TEs or QBs. Even with those downsides I am migrating my current yahoo leagues over to the Sleeper app next year.
Jasu9696786543 - Meh
I’m probably in the minority here, but I’m not impressed with the Sleeper app. I want a fantasy app to be clean, intuitive and easy to use. This app is none of the above.
There are so many colors, animations and icons that the screen looks cartoonish. It’s so busy that it’s difficult to do the main tasks of learning about the players and setting my lineup. The top third of the screen is some cartoon mascot dancing around.
You can get alerts when a player on the roster makes a big play or scores, which is cool. Unfortunately there are times where the alerts are false and the player didn’t score or make a big play, which is not cool.
Every time I open the app in December there is an ad for their NBA fantasy league. I get it and I’m fine with cross-promoting, but not every single time I open the app for weeks leading up to the NBA season. That’s too much.
This is a second-hand comment, but our commissioner said it wasn’t easy to setup the league and add players to teams (our draft was outside the app). I’m stuck with this app because of the league I’m in, so hopefully it will get better before next season or we’ll switch. Just know that there are at least a half-dozen other fantasy apps that are free and easier to use. Keep it simple and allow us to manage our leagues without all the cartoons. Thanks.
Hockeybrianboy - Decent platform but beware
I don’t know if the setting was specific to just the Megalabowl league on this platform but it didn’t designate the draft order until the draft started. Ended up making a terrible early 2nd round pick because I was trying to configure my draft assistant which would’ve been down if the draft order was set even 5 minutes before.
This also makes mock drafting a pain if that is the only league you play in that’s 2QB, 14 team and all your other leagues are 10, etc. as most of us don’t have time to mock from every spot in that unique format for just one league. So I’d double check your draft order setting.
Otherwise the platform is solid and the trade block is much nicer than what ESPN for example has.
Ac3800 - Best Fantasy App
I want to say its the absolute best fantasy football app, easy to use and very fluid. I only have 1 suggestion, as years ago in a different app, their was a way to do a filter and give a statement after your fantasy week as if you were being interviewed after the game. I really enjoyed it as teams were able to talk about their team n it was very funny to see each other pretend to do a press conference. So if it could be an option to do a video with a filter as if in a press conference i think it would be fun especially to add an aspect of this is your team and your either defending your week or just having fun with the league. Just a thought but otherwise awesome app!
Phatdad66 - So far, so AWESOME!
Let me start by saying that I just discovered this app and I am still in the beginning phases putting together my first league in it. With that said, it’s basically everything I’ve ever dreamed of in fantasy app. From the draft board, to the greatest chat room system ever made to the intuitive player analytics GUI you can tell whoever developed this app are true hardcore fantasy sports nuts. Visual In-messaging trades get everyone into the trading market enjoyably and conveniently, you can even have 3 way trades! So far I am beyond impressed but I’ll have to come back when my league is a few weeks in to give a final Grade. Friendly enough for a novice while seemingly deep enough for even the most obsessed bro you ever met!
Abbott6x9 - Not intuitive, multiple crashes, and lack of support
1. This is the least intuitive app I have ever used. The information is not segmented properly and even making line-up changes is difficult to figure out at first.
2. Since we have started using the app this year, there have been multiple crashes. The latest crash occurs every time you try to see your league. This makes it impossible/extremely difficult to track league standings and performances of other teams in previous weeks.
3. Finding support within the app is nearly impossible, and the chat function on the web is useless. It lets you speak with a bot with promises of a response within a few hours. I don’t plan to standby this chat until I get a response from someone and no information was taken to identify me when a correction occurs or to get more information. There either needs to be immediate response times or a ticketing system that takes my email for followup if no one is immediately available. Responding in a “few hours” will only work for the person who is sitting and waiting and that seems absurd for that amount of time.
I have money riding on this league and the app getting in the way of performance is very frustrating. Will 100% be using another app in the future unless major changes are made.
Tate-76 - Inexcusable glitches
Numerous things go wrong with this app - for example we just finished up a dynasty draft on Sleeper - A couple players including Cooper Kupp were nowhere to be found throughout the entire draft - sometimes it doesn’t allow me to move stuff on my roster which is costing me adding guys from the waiver - additionally there’s no draft queuing which is absolutely ridiculous - The ranking system is so flawed until they paired with someone actually legitimate casual users are totally hosed - I am not a casual user but having to manually search for guys that should obviously be at the top of the list is a absolute pain - how do you not have Rookie summary’s and breakdowns? Not even a photo of these guys for Rookie drafts - this should be hands down the best app for fantasy but if is definitely NOT - on top of it all when you do have an issue - there “help” has gotten back super slow and without explanation - Thanks for reading my rant - moving my league back to ESPN
A user of many apps - Fantasy LCS.....
I love doing fantasy league of legends. We were so excited to find your app. You would have a solid 5 star review from me if it were not for one thing: forced picks/bans. Every other piece of functionality for the app is amazing.
Forcing us to do picks/bans without an option to turn them off made me never want to use your app for fantasy league again. Our entire group did not want to use picks and bans. When they started changing outcomes for the weeks (who wins and looses) no one felt good about it. The experience of loosing only due to picks/bans makes the loss awful. Winning only due to picks/bans is not satisfying.
On top of all of this, not picking/banning (allowing the app to auto-pick) is more reliable than putting in time and effort. In essence, this makes going into the app each week completely useless, thus defeating the purpose of not allowing us to turn picks/bans off. The people in our league who don’t ever check in on the app are the ones who won from picks/bans rather than the base points.
If you ever allow us to opt out of picks/bans, I will gladly use the app split after split and enjoy every minute of it.
I feel as if my experience was ruined
Sweggy_p - Love everything about it, just would love iPad app
So every year, I love doing fantasy sports on multiple platforms just to see which app is the best. The last couple years, by far, has been Sleeper. Very user friendly, very good at updating with news, and I recently switched my main at-home league to Sleeper. No doubt the best decision we ever made. I love using my iPad to keep track of my fantasy scores, so my only thing is I wish at some point they create a iPad/tablet version (aside from just going on the sleeper site, which is fine in landscape mode). But that’s definitely not worth taking a star away. Keep up the great work, thank you!!
ASleeper7 - Video Feature Away from Perfect
Well, I left a review last year about league history import being the only thing that was missing. Sleeper absolutely listened and has since added that feature!!! I can only hope to be so lucky again. The league I’m in is one that likes to talk a lot of trash. A video feature would only serve to enhance that and make our experience the best yet. Hopefully this can be added in the near future! We still fully use the audio function but there’s something a little bit more to trash talking when a person can see your face.
HumanBeing0000000000001 - Need to fix some basic issues to make it great
Love the available customization of league formats, settings, etc.. Great features like ability to place players on the “trade block” and setting an “expiration” on a trade offer proposed to a league mate.
The negative - this app is very wonky to navigate thru at times. I often find myself literally “stuck” (not frozen) on a particular screen - to where there’s no option to go back or exit to the main page. You hit these “dead ends” within the app and you basically are left with having to just close out and reopen the app entirely, just to get back to the main page. It’s very strange. Maybe I’m missing something?? If the app was easier to navigate thru, it would be hands down 5⭐️
Scruggles98 - Need to fix Basketball Bugs
Before I mention this, the app is great, but what I just experienced was not acceptable.
I was in a league matchup with someone who chose a game that was at the end of the week, and unfortunately that player got injured two games prior, but had already played a previous game that week so there was a score for it. Although they’d chosen a different game and gotten 0 points because that player wasn’t playing, the system game then the points from the game earlier that week that they never chosen and as a result I lost. The system is faulty and needs to be fixed. The rules clearly say “once you choose a game and it’s played, you can’t change it.” So how can you give someone points for a game they didn’t change?
BearCat22934 - Suggestion
I really like this app and especially for dynasty formats. A few suggestions that would make this app even better would be to have more in-depth analysis of players/matchups and a contract tab for each player showing how many years each player has with each team. This would help managers with possible roster situations and would be more convenient than having to look up each individual players contact.
Needs to have a better up to date on injury updates. (When a player has been reported out they should have an injury designation of out within the same hour of the news coming out)
Foomay123 - I like it but…
I like the App a lot (first year using it), but I currently have one complaint.
When in “league” tab, I can see all of the match-up total scores, but I cannot see individual players. This is fine as I can select one of the matches and see all of the stats from individual players. However, from that screen there is no way to scroll between different matches. I have to go back one screen and select another match up. This is a annoying and should be improved since it is standard feature even in other big platform apps.
Jessie_21 - Lacking in Fantasy Basketball
In the way that sleeper excels at fantasy football is exactly how they’ve failed in their fantasy basketball. In fantasy football they offer the flexibility of setting up whichever scoring system you like, but in basketball they don’t. They only have the option to play with their game pick mode not any of the traditional fantasy basketball scoring methods such as standard points league scoring or Roto scoring options. That being said I’m my experience that is their only weakness. I’m all other areas they excel. Their customer support is superb though.
Pizzle P - iPad please
I’ve been all aboard since Sleeper was just a hot FF news feed. Early adopter and missionary for league conversion ever since. However, the fact that y’all have not put out a iPad version at this point is simply contrary to what you’ve been all along. So far that makes me sad, but I look forward to iPad support next year!
Speaking of, I apologize for any typos or errors, I am typing this on an iPad running the blown-up iPhone version of the app currently, and for whatever reason none of the text I’m typing shows; so I’m just kind of winging it.
Wish me luck! Just kidding, you made it this fare that means... idk what that means
Love you you sleeper!!! Make your iPad app
JLamont26 - Great Fantasy Football App!
I moved my league from the NFL fantasy platform to Sleeper and no more frustrations. I'm still in another league that uses Yahoo and I hate to go into the app to check the scores. Sleeper has nailed this app! Giving the commissioner and owners a full experience from the mobile device, there is almost no reason to use the website. If you're not using Sleeper, you're missing out. Two things I'd love to see:
1. A widget for a quick look at scores without having to unlock the device.
2. An "Adds" counter that shows the number of adds a team has made throughout the season.
TechRanget2 - Best Fantasy App for Football
I was very skeptical at first because of some of the animated mascots but this app has won me over. I have a few fantasy team in different leagues and they use competitor apps and they pale in comparison to Sleeper. Sleep allows me to advertise players I’d like to trade without having to actually set up a trade. The app also makes it easy to view my roster and make changes without backing out of the weekly match up. Ranking and waivers are easily accessed and displayed in league info….I could go on and on but honestly you should try this app and see for yourself.
CLesleyy - THE BEST
Sleeper is 100% the best fantasy football and basketball app currently, I don’t see any other app being better anytime soon. Aside from a few bugs every once in a while, the app runs super smooth and is very easy to navigate. I love how each league has its own chat, makes it very easy to communicate with the league. Also the real time updates are as fast if not faster than any other app. It’s also great for March madness fans because you can create a bracket pool on sleeper as well and don’t have to download any other app. Best fantasy sports app hands down.
Steelg2 - Great App, review FAAB?
Overall, the best Fantasy Football app out right now. I love the customization aspect of it, can really make your league your own experience. One suggestion I’d like to make is regarding the FAAB system. When bidding, there needs to be a “bid up to” component, sort of like how E-Bay works. It doesn’t make sense to have to pay for a player for the max value of your bid when the next closest bid was lower, when $1 more would have gotten the job done- if that makes sense?
It’s something my league has discussed ad nauseam. Would help stretch your FAAB and not over pay when it’s unnecessary. Love the app!
RN3LJR - Great But Can Be Buggy
Overall it’s a great app. Especially if you’re in multiple leagues since it’s easy to switch between them. It’s also very convenient to see the scores for everyone’s matchup. There just seems to be a handful of bugs that hinder the experience a bit.
The primary one is it doesn’t load/open sometimes. When this happens I have to close and reopen it once or twice. Some people in my main NFL Fantasy League have had to uninstall & reinstall the app to get it to work. This isn’t much of an issue most of the week but when it happens on game day, it’s kind of a hassle.
Jcb15655 - Cool, but has some problems
I really enjoy the app, but it definitely has things to improve, but most are minor. Scoring tends to lag behind even sometimes 15-30 minutes after the play is over. The notifications are kinda random, particularly clearing them (my app still shows 20 notifications even though they are all cleared), but overall its great. Very enjoyable. Would knock it down a bit for it being a blown up version of the iPhone app and only working vertically, but they are supposed to be fixing that in the near future by releasing an IPad version of the app, which I’m super excited for.
Angelo1236 - Great App MOST OF THE TIME!!!!
I was a big sleeper fan until my league’s playoffs started. We have a pretty complex 3 week playoff system with byes and stuff and they took away the commissioner’s ability to change matchups and manually set the playoff matches we needed. Why they did this is beyond me and absolutely stupid. Now were in the playoffs and the correct matchups aren’t set so were forced to cross reference to see who’s winning. We were in contact with Kevin and Axcel from Sleeper for literally a week and they did nothing to help us and didn’t even respond. Absolute disgrace, customer support gets 0 stars. Loved this app until this mess, go somewhere else and Sleeper if you see this, fire Kevin and Axcel because they are not doing their johs and ruined our league.
Claymentay - Can’t wait til native
I currently work for a (somewhat of a) startup software company in a big industry so I understand the growing pains of progressing to the next big thing. This year I convinced my 10+ year espn league to move to Sleeper and everyone loves it, including the stubborn people in the group, but there is such a big need for a native iPad app.
I saw it’s planned for January 2020 but unfortunately that’s after the season. I know the rest of the league is waiting for the final piece of the puzzle just like me.
Thanks for making my life as a commish easy, I truly appreciate that! Reach out if you need any additional support, I love fantasy football and have a solid background in IT.
Awesomedude21 - Great Fantasy App!
Been using Sleeper for 3 years now, just started using fantasy basketball. Game pick is a really cool feature you came up with, makes life a lot easier than setting daily lineups. my only suggestion is to add a feature where you can choose to set your weekly lineup and best ball your players best 1 game for the week instead of game pick, that way players aren’t penalized for not knowing Giannis or any other elite player is gonna have a slump the night they picked but still doesn’t force the user to check their lineups daily.
SamuelHSchabel - The best platform for Fantasy Football, but needs iPad integration
I have thoroughly enjoyed using this app for my fantasy football league, and it does a lot of things well here.
But I’m writing a review to urge iPad integration. Of course, a full-fledged iPadOS app would be amazing. But I understand that takes a lot of work. So at the very least, can we make Sleeper work on an iPad browser? I assumed that would have already worked, but the Sleeper home page is too large for the screen and doesn’t allow customization. For example, the chat screen is cut off on the right side and I can’t drag it over, or expand that module.
Really a great app, but it seems silly that you can’t use it properly on an iPad web browser.
Klawyer - Use to be excellent
I miss when this app first came out a few years back and you could follow the play-by-play of your selected players. Multiple players on multiple teams, live time. Like a scrolling play-by-play of all the games/players you were interested in as they scored fantasy points. I also miss the old news feed... now it makes you choose “channels” which you need to scroll through rather than having it all in one feed. And, the channels aren’t alerts or news anymore... just other fantasy players asking everyone for help. So you’re basically getting advice from everyone and anyone.
It use to give you tons of alerts, which made it a true “sleeper” app. It’s basically just another app to host a fantasy league anymore.
Ddoll33 - Almost Perfect
This is the best fantasy app/format I have found out there. Only thing they need to improve is to add a counter offer option for trades. Other than that it is perfect. My main league that is very serious and intent on not changing its ways/traditions immediately switched to this app a single day before the draft. It makes everything easier on every commissioner and member of the league. The in app chat is awesome and there is boat loads of research to be had through sleeper. If someone from the company reads this, please add a counter trade option in next update!
Capt. Fury 616 - Close to Perfect
Sleeper is always branching out and updating their app for the best fantasy sports experience for mobile players. We switched over to them last year and everyone has loved the change. But with other apps starting to implement trade block features for their users (not as in blocking trades), a few of us have started feeling left behind. Really hoping that we see that feature this year; I can’t think of a reason that Sleeper wouldn’t be the best fantasy platform out there afterward. It’d also be nice if the mock drafts using your league settings tracked traded picks, but that’s more for convenience than anything.
Chodey Rivers III - Best fantasy app
For years my friends and I have had a text group chat to keep each other updated on NFL games, trades, news, etc. We made the transition to Sleeper over a year ago and it was the best decision we ever made. The in app chat feature singlehandedly destroyed our text chat which we didn’t expect. Sleeper conveniently has everything you need in one place. I could not compliment Sleeper enough. Ditch those cruddy ESPN and Yahoo apps, it’s Sleeper time! PS, give the NBA game mode a try. It is innovative and exciting, especially the dynasty mode.

Henny & Jack - Greatest App for Fantasy, But...
Love the app, but in the next update you guys need to increase the size of players profile pics for mobile, and also show who has liked you’re posts in your Leagues Chat. Other than those minor things , Sleeper is pretty much perfect
TroyATH - Continual problems and no support from the app designers.
The league I host continuously has problems with this app. Right now, when we all open our games we are all playing different teams to each other. The schedule is different for each person. There are also some who don’t currently have an opponent but each person that has a missing team it is a different team missing. I’ve tried contacting Sleeper but have got zero response. We are going to look for a different dynasty host after this season. Too many issues and not enough customer response. Not worth it.
Lucy0909 - AI teams
I have started a fantasy NBA league with a few of my mates which involves a few AI players. Everyone that is in the league that is not an AI player is at the top of the leaderboard because the AI players don't change their match a week by week. To even it out I gave each of the AI teams are a superstar player however they are just sat on the bench. Can you make it that the commissioner can change the lineups for AI teams
AppleShampoo182 - Best fantasy football app
This is by far, hand down the best fantasy football app I’ve ever used. From its in app information about players to the easy to use interface. Great work Sleeper! 🖤
Mack daddy1978 - Great
Love sleepers really does make most things great. If I had one suggestion it would be to add a trade block for players
Doras_cousin - Great… but could be greater
Hey guys, love the fantasy sports you’ve included so far, but I’d love it even more if you could do fantasy soccer/epl. You guys are guns and no one does it well so there’d be no doubt you’d take the market by storm. Cheers Sleeper team.
ArtWest - Great service
I had a minor issue with a cancelled draft showing up (my own fault) and after an email to the Sleeper team they had resolved it for me 15 minutes later! Awesome service. Great app.
Puaatane - Very helpful!!!
Love this app. It’s really helped me out with my fantasy football. It’s a must have app.
Raiderjim12345 - The best
Best fantasy app there is. Full stop.
Asedftghujk - Best fantasy app
But when I got a new phone I can’t find my 2020 league when I downloaded the app again
Pen pinchers - Only learning
Still only learning it once I pick it up better I’ll love t I think
RIOT_PO1SON - Good
Shocking1234566 - So confused
This couldn’t be harder to use if you tried!
Makskeske - Trash
Dumb how you have to chose a game for your players and hope they play good in that game
Josh Spigelman - Great
Really up to date app for all fantasy concerns
Battis41 - Excellent

Ash1234238957 - Great app
It’s awesome and a must for dynasty leagues. I wish they added hockey fantasy. 🙏
TezMachine - Trolls and children clutter everything
How does this 1 star affect marlon Mack?
The Old B-man - Comment moderation
I’m a huge fan of Sleeper. But please figure out spam filters and how to mute homophobic/racist language. I don’t even see the value of comments on news alerts right now - may be worth removing the feature entirely as the user base grows. Five stars when you fix the comments!
DSchoe71 - Stick with Yahoo
Fairly user friendly. Projections/percentages are horrible. Doesn’t refresh very well. Too much going on. No IPad app. Design and setup could be better. Stick with the proven good fantasy sites.
Jjnics - App is pretty good until news happens
The app is very good until any breaking news happens. The app crashes and is slow for at least 10 minutes after breaking news.
Qwertyuioppoiuy1111 - Mock draft
App crashes every single mock draft
FalconsFan2-18 - Very good
Top 2 Fantasy app
GoldenMonkey65 - Could be great
Seems like every other month there’s a new issue or glitch. As of now it doesn’t send notifications to half of my dynasty league, myself included.
Fred19623 - Blank screen when opening app
I like the app but recently I’ve encountered a problem. I’m using an iPhone 12. Every second or third time I open the app all I get is a blank grey screen. The only way to correct it is to restart my phone. Is there a fix? I’m completely updated.
Smith871996 - Hockey? Baseball?
I wish they would add fantasy hockey and baseball. Has great feature but not having all sports make it limited.
Mank55555 - NHL
Will sleeper ever get NHL . Would be great for a dynasty league!
Champ12321 - Picks and Bans is Trash
The fact that you can’t turn off the Picks and Band portion for Fantasy League is a tragedy. Why can you scale its percentages but not so away with it completely? Overall far inferior to other fantasy sports apps I’ve used.
Gghugggi - Me
Too busy. Too much going on, in the app. Simplify it.
Steeb9 - Fix update
I love the app.. but ever since you added the flames feature for teams on a winning streak it’s made the app super slow and laggy. Probably just switch to an emote or something rather than the flame effect. It’s cool and all but it’s made the app miserable. Could just be my awful phone too but pls fix.
Shimmy_ya - Stop harassing us
Fantasy Football alerts are for player/game related information not “this is good luck on Morse code” alerts you donkeys.
BJE6 - QB stats
For QBs make their passing stats and running stats exclusively on their own lines.
Passing on one line, carries on another line exclusively.
Love the app love the updates!
Also please make a widget for iPhone users!
Sad737297 - Issues with newest update
Is anyone else having issues since the latest update? Can’t even open up anymore, what can I do? Worked just fine before new update, and now it doesn’t open
Dan1233566654321 - Favourite Fantasy App
Defiantly my favourite fantasy app. The navigation is unique so took a little bit of time to get the hang of it but really smooth after, and constantly adding additional features.
One suggestion I have would be the ability to create and add leagues into folders. I like many others have joined more leagues than I probably should have and it would make it a lot easier to navigate if I could separate my dynasty from redraft leagues, bestball, and paid from free etc.
Jsherrard9 - Garbage app and site
The app logic and layout are straight trash. I barely want to even check my team because it sucks so bad. It’s just a mess of nonsensical screens that duplicate info and there is no clear means of navigation. Never thought I’d say I like ESPN or CBS apps over this but here we are.
Avenger10 - SO SLOW TO UPDATE
It is ridiculously slow to make changes with the scoring. It takes upwards for 5-10 minutes to catch up with real time score. Maybe spend less time making goats fight and update scores on time like other Fantasy apps…
I hope this it Week 1 issues that can be fixed.
Anonymous1992000 - Draft
Draft went into auto pick somehow. Other users reported the same issue along with the draft freezing.
Bjornthered - Needs a friendlier interface
Could be a smoother interface, draft room wasn’t super smooth compared to other apps
Nadanopenah - Glitchy
Sleeper screen pops up in the middle of anything functional on the app and kicks me back to my roster screen.
Hanszbest - Good but
It would be good too if you add hockey
Stevie wonder 1908 - It’s Good But……
Would be amazing if they had hockey also
Myprosona - Good
Would love fantasy baseball
Me929344 - The best
Just finished our dynasty draft and the app was awesome!!
Magnet1414141414 - Limited draft times
Have a slow draft set up with 1 hour per pick. After the first few rounds we were all in agreement to speed it up a bit to 30 min instead. Turns out there are no options in between 10 and 60 minute timers. Seems like a huge jump to me. Would love to see the addition of a 30 min timer.
Kingjames0910 - App is garbage
The only reason I use this app is because my league makes me. Yahoo is way better.
Rmekfififkfrdkdide - PAUL GEORGE SG
Pls put Paul George at shooting guard it’s his position
RyanW0715 - Best Fantasy App Around
Love this app! I have suggested it to so many other fantasy commissioners. Love the updates and everything they have added to this app since it launched. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next.
Mckes - Please add COD
Personally I think adding the call of duty roasters/etc would be a amazing update
TimKendall3 - Amazing
Hands down the best fantasy football app I have ever used. Great features, constant updates to enhance the user experience and features not even available on other apps
Tyrellforeman - Cannot see my screens
I cannot see my matchup, team or league screen. I have tried updates to the app and my iOS software. Still does not fix it. Also, it’s playoffs:(
Mustachejerry - User Friendly
Easy to use app. The staff are incredibly responsive and are the first platform to adapt and try new things. These are the people I want to support !
Dgjukbggdx - App is garbage
Not intuitive not responsive and not the data and resources of other platforms
Yomamasonnnnnn - Keeps crashing
The overall app looks nice, but it keeps crashing now whenever I go on it. Very frustrating.
MatPro1515 - Perfect for more customized leagues & Dynasty
Perfect for more customized leagues & Dynasty
John in Saskatoon - App not working now on IPhone
Since the latest update I can’t see many team icons, headings and it is difficult to move around in the app. All the X ‘s for closing pages are gone. I have to constantly close and reopen the app to get back to league and team pages. Whats going on? Have used app on my iPhone 8 for 3 seasons without problem until this week.
Rickand10 - Very poor
This app is one of the worst I’ve experienced. Stick with Yahoo or NFL
Killakens - Way too much going on
Looks great, the concept is there. But it’s laggy and way too much junk going on. Yahoo / ESPN are better options.
G..g5 - Really missing the polls option in chats!!
Everyone is missing the polls! Bring them back !
Drunk69-Again420 - Amazing Mock Drafts
This is the only free app that offers a keeper setting for mock drafts!! So amazing.
A.Bruno - Amazing App
You can tell that this app was created by fantasy players for fantasy players. Just waiting for NHL fantasy hockey!
Rollax2 - The new Guy on the block
I've done Football leagues on CBS, NFL and Yahoo traditionally and moved over to sleeper this year, loving it. Clean design, no ads, easy navigation and really cool features sets this apart. Missing max roster moves/season option but overall, incredible. Don't hesitate to move over.
Commish mj - No iPad version
Come on man no iPad version
Anth1190 - Roster Limit
-App is amazing ! Only thing missing is the ROSTER LIMIT FOR EACH POSITION
- please add that before season starts
ChefParks - First Year on Sleeper!
Hey there, Been playing fantasy football for 16 years now, and this is my first on Sleeper. Thought I’d try new things and branch out a bit. I’m really enjoying everything about the app. From the draft boards, league settings and line ups. There are so many features I love about Sleeper. I’ve recommended it to a couple friends now as well. Looking forward to the 2020 Football Season!
RGeralde - None of my teams show up
Had about 8 leagues going, and while my messages show up, it now shows any news stories as story no longer exist and none of my teams show up.
ChampionRope - Cookies not showing up
I just spent real money on this app and the cookies I purchased have not shown up. Very frustrating. Basically theft. Don’t buy the cookies.
