"Sleeper" Fantasy Football site
Have any of you heard or used this site for your fantasy team leagues?

Seems pretty nice. Just wondering if I can get my league to switch over from Yahoo.

I use the Sleeper app for breaking news. Advice is hit and miss, seems like a lot of kids on it. Never used it for a league though.

If you’re asking if it’s possible to import from Yahoo, I just looked and didn’t see the option.

If you’re asking if you should get your league members to agree to switch over, Yahoo is the best platform IMO.

The td dynasty league that we just started this year is hosted on sleeper. I'm liking it a lot so far. I still need to see what the in-season experience is like. The customer service is great and really in touch with the needs of their users. They're putting a lot of work into putting in features that people are telling them they want.

For dynasty sleeper is better than yahoo, and for redraft, so far, I think it gives them a run for their money.

When they get the auction feature next year I’ll have 4 or 5 that’s hosted in sleeper and 1-2 on other sites.

I'll probably give it another year and maybe switch next year to it. I'll try to find someone using it this year I can join and try. Thanks

Seems good so far I’m just worried that they don’t have a solid revenue stream.

This

Sleeper really is a great app and site for managing teams in a league. However, Juju hosts a league on Sleeper (Dalvin Cook also?) and it would be a surprise if they folded with some of these backers/supporters? Fingers crossed I guess.

No tabs or pages. When you log in all your league info is right at your fingertips - members, scoring settings, matchups, all that jazz is right there on one page. Its neatly formatted so it's not cluttered.

To make a trade or look at your league mates rosters, you just click on their team name right there and it pops up. Fast and seamless.

You can plug in Keepers to the draft board in whatever round you want to. You can plug in traded picks.

They have a ton of custom scoring settings of you're into that.

The app is fast and easily laid out. Not cluttered like ESPN or others. Just download the app and play with it. You'll see what we mean.

Edit - the built in chat feature is great, too. Eliminates the need for like a FB messenger or GroupMe group.

Only complaint I have (and its minor) when you’re in more than 1 league and you use the same team name then when you get a PM message you have to know which league it’s for they don’t have each league separate for PM messages.

Each league is different for community messages for that league on the league home page

re: "Sleeper" Fantasy Football site
Yup it’s incredibly user friendly.

But they don’t have ads or sponsors and their revenue plan is to “sell cookies you can buy mascots with.” Well they gave us two mascots for free and I don’t see why anyone would pay for a mascot unless it was a quasi donation to keep the app going.

I just don’t see how that is sustainable long term. Seems movie passesque in terms of bad business plans.

Been wondering what their overall plan is myself, I think they’re more social media oriented though. I’m sure they’ll sell their soul once their user numbers get high enough

IMO Yahoo is the worst. To each his own.
