Football season? Pshhh. It’s time to start thinking about the NBA and Yahoo Sports Fantasy Basketball is officially back and better than ever for the 2017-18 season!

What’s New This Year?

We started by making the game easier for new users by reducing scoring categories and changing the default roster change to weekly (instead of daily). Fantasy players love the ritual of setting their lineups once a week for football so we’ve brought it to basketball.

Next, we improved the already four years running No. 1 Fantasy app according to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association by adding all commish tools and redesigning the draft experience, improved league invites, added chat to make trash talking easier and have live stats streaming to your matchup page.

So what do you do now that the game is officially open? Sign up and download  the Yahoo Sports Fantasy app (iOS or Android) today to get started!  And keep checking back at Yahoo Fantasy Sports to help you prep for your drafts with upcoming expert rankings, sleepers and more to help you rise above the competition and win a fantasy title. The only way you’ll miss out is if you don’t play and stay tuned for more exciting announcements!
