Yahoo! Fantasy Football 08′ Season Launches With Mobile Features

Posted Aug 8, 2008

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) Sports Fantasy Fooball 08′ has officially launched.  Braylon Edwards, wide receiver of the Cleveland Browns is the Fantasy Life Coach for Yahoo! Fantasy Football [Yahoo! Blog].  Yahoo! Fantasy Football is available at: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/.

The mobile version of Yahoo! Fantasy Sports is available at: http://m.yahoo.com/fantasy. 

Around 2:50PM EST on August 1st, a Yahoo! shareholder mentioned at the Yahoo! Inc. 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, ?I use Yahoo! primarily for fantasy sports.?  No one has actually mentioned that division during the presentation.  “That is the reason why I have a Yahoo! account.  I want the company to invest in that franchise.” 

By hiring Braylon Edwards as a fantasy coach, perhaps Yahoo! is taking that shareholder’s request pretty seriously.
