Drew S. Philadelphia, PA

"If you're serious about customizing your league, there is simply no site that can provide what Fleaflicker can."
Background

Drew S. from Philadelphia, PA is the commissioner of UDel's Dynasty League, a long-running keeper league of college friends. The league started on ESPN, later tested My Fantasy League, and has been hosted on Fleaflicker since 2011.

Challenge

The owners of UDel's Dynasty League frequently trade draft picks in complicated combinations. And owners must also surrender a draft pick for each keeper. For Drew, manually recording trades quickly become overwhelming. “ESPN and My Fantasy League did not allow me to easily track the trading of future draft picks, manage keepers, initiate multi-team trades, and quickly check our trade history,” Drew said.

Solution

When Drew moved his league to Fleaflicker in 2011, his league discovered that not only was their unique trading system fully supported, but they could also implement custom defensive scoring rules that weren't possible on other platforms. Using Fleaflicker's extensive commissioner tools, Drew was able to replicate his league's settings, draft order and rules very quickly.

Results

UDel's Dynasty League has since enjoyed many successful years on Fleaflicker. The league has completed hundreds of trades, with Fleaflicker automatically tracking the trades and adjusting the draft order. And because the league's members are scattered around the United States in different time zones, they chose to use Fleaflicker's E-mail draft instead of a live draft.

"As soon as we made the switch to Fleaflicker, our jobs were greatly simplified."
Background

Dave H. from Jackson, NJ is an avid fantasy football fan and technology expert. Dave is a moderator of Reddit's popular fantasyfootball community (/r/fantasyfootball) and he's always searching for cutting-edge fantasy tools and content. He has been a loyal Fleaflicker user since 2006, when he moved his league The EFFL to Fleaflicker after testing several different platforms.

Challenge

As a moderator of Reddit's fantasy football community, Dave is responsible for coordinating NarFFL, a massive aggregation of hundreds of fantasy leagues. Dave's personal league, The EFFL, was so impressed by Fleaflicker's interface and features that he decided to move Reddit's NarFFL leagues to Fleaflicker too.

This was no small feat. NarFFL needed a site capable of accommodating hundreds of leagues and thousands of owners. Dave and the other moderators needed to act as commissioners of each league without actually owning and managing their own teams. They also needed to appoint co-commissioners in case they were unavailable. No fantasy site was able to meet these requirements—except Fleaflicker. “Fleaflicker plus a few of the 'big guys' came to us with some solutions, but Fleaflicker's willingness to help and accommodate our needs blew all of the others out of the water,” Dave said.

Solution

Fleaflicker's support staff worked with Dave and the Reddit moderators to create hundreds of leagues with the required custom rules and settings. Dave was up and running in less than one week.

Results

Dave's personal league, The EFFL has enjoyed almost a decade of successful seasons at Fleaflicker. Meanwhile, Reddit's NarFFL leagues have been running smoothly since 2012—even as hundreds of old owners drop out and new owners join. Before the start of each season, Fleaflicker's support staff checks in with Dave to make sure he's prepared. The Reddit football leagues were so popular that all the other fantasy communities have also migrated their official leagues to Fleaflicker as well (/r/fantasybaseball, /r/fantasybasketball, and /r/fantasyhockey). “The Fleaflicker guys have worked with us since day one and accommodated every request we made. Fleaflicker has been my main personal league for the last eight years. In fact, I love Fleaflicker so much that I persuaded all of my personal leagues to be hosted on Fleaflicker.”

"Fleaflicker is my one-stop destination for all things related to football."
Background

Josh C. from Brainerd, MN is the commissioner of two long-standing leagues and has been playing fantasy sports since 1998. Josh's leagues were hosted on Yahoo! for many seasons, but he always felt there weren't enough customizable features to accommodate his league's needs.

Challenge

Josh wanted to give his owners more control over which stats were used in the league's scoring. The owners in his Epic Football dynasty league are serious stat geeks. On other platforms, they wasted many hours looking up stats and news from other sources.

Solution

Josh moved both of his leagues from Yahoo! to Fleaflicker using Fleaflicker's importing tools. Everyone loves Fleaflicker's integrated fantasy content. Owners spend less time on other sites because everything can be found on Fleaflicker— detailed stats, updated rankings, rookie reports, injury news, and comprehensive projections (published early Tuesday morning, long before any other website).

Results

Josh's leagues were so satisfied with Fleaflicker that he has since added a third. “The best part of all this?” Josh asked. “It's free. I don't play anywhere else but here.”

League History

Dave C. Center Twp., PA

"Fleaflicker is on the cutting edge of fantasy sports."
Background

Dave C. from Center Twp., PA is the commissioner of multiple leagues that have existed for nearly 20 years. His leagues were previously hosted on the now-defunct Sandbox platform.

Challenge

Dave's league was unhappy paying fees to a league provider that didn't even support all of their settings.

Solution

Dave migrated his leagues to Fleaflicker with the help of Fleaflicker's support staff and found all the amenities his pay site offered, but for free—live scoring, comprehensive league history, customizable stats. “And Fleaflicker's customer service is top-notch. It is not uncommon for me to E-mail late at night on a game day to ask about the scoring and receive a response before I go to bed that night!” Dave said.

Results

Dave's league was thrilled to stop paying the annual fees and also upgrade to a superior fantasy football experience with comprehensive league history. “My league will often check past results and compare teams and trends to years gone by—similar to the way TV stations will tdo to prove a point.,” Dave said.

"Fleaflicker is highly customizable and aesthetically pleasing. You cannot get that combination anywhere else."
Background

Michael M. from Slidell, LA is the commissioner of two long-running fantasy football leagues—one keeper and one redraft. His first league with close friends bounced around before finding Fleaflicker in 2008—from Yahoo!, to Fox Sports and to ESPN. Michael and his league-mates kept looking for a clean and customizable site to track everything.

Challenge

The owners in Michael's leagues are serious football fans from Saints country. They needed customizable options for almost every stat category. The other three sites they tried didn't support everything, and many settings were disabled during the offseason.

Solution

Michael moved his leagues to Fleaflicker and realized he was no longer restricted by his fantasy platform. He was free to change what he wanted when he wanted to. On other sites, many features are disabled in the offseason or locked-in after the season starts. Fleaflicker had no such restrictions. “If you are looking to have full control over the way your league operates, Fleaflicker is the place to be,” Michael said.

Results

Both of Michael's leagues have enjoyed Fleaflicker since 2008. “We moved our leagues to Fleaflicker several years ago and haven't looked back since.”

"The reason I prefer Fleaflicker leagues over Yahoo, NFL.com, and ESPN, is because it isn't saturated with useless graphics and ads."
Background

Ty M. from Highland, IL is a dynasty league aficionado that knows all the ins and outs of the industry. He is a writer for Dynasty League Football and has been published on USA Today's website. Ty was looking for a free site that could replicate the true GM experience of the NFL. He tried many options, including Yahoo!, NFL and ESPN, but none of them gave him the dynasty and mobile experience he was looking for.

Challenge

The owners of the two leagues Ty operates, Devil's Den Dynasty League and Amateur Hour, need to conduct complicated rookie drafts each season. Blockbuster trades, including future draft picks and young prospects, are commonplace. This required comprehensive access during the offseason, including updated rookie lists and position eligibility. Ty would often manually manage offseason transactions because other sites weren't updated on time and some even shut down completely after the season.

Solution

Moving his leagues to to Fleaflicker made Ty's life easier— he stopped manually handling procedures during the “offseason,” because at Fleaflicker there is no offseason. All players are easy to find with updated positions. Ty loves that the leagues are free and that he always receives a prompt reply to his questions.

Results

Ty's leagues have been on Fleaflicker for many seasons, completing several rookie drafts and executing thousands of transactions. All players, even if they are undrafted free-agents, are available on Fleaflicker immediately.

"As long as I'm playing fantasy sports, I'll never leave Fleaflicker. You just don't find a better experience anywhere else."
Background

Chris M. from Hoschton, GA is the commissioner of two dynasty leagues, one keeper league and one redraft league on Fleaflicker. His first experience on Fleaflicker was with his dynasty league named FFFBL, when he was looking for an easy-to-use design that would not slow his devices down. He went back and forth between ESPN and Yahoo!, but it was the fast navigation times on Fleaflicker that led him to switch for good in 2010.

Challenge

Owners in Chris's leagues are extremely active and always looking for the next sleeper and prospect. It is not unusual for them to spend several hours on team management and player research in a single day. Chris needed a site they could navigate quickly. Switching leagues from site to site can be challenging, but for Chris it wasn't. “Fortunately, I stumbled upon Fleaflicker years ago. I spoke to their customer service department and they replied swiftly and answered each question I had about the website,” Chris said.

Solution

After the switch, Chris and his league no longer had to deal with slow load times or “slim selection of stats,” he reported. The comprehensive league history that Fleaflicker stores for each league makes Chris' life fun as a commish.

Results

FFFBL is still going strong into their fifth season on Fleaflicker. And Chris now has three new leagues and always looks forward to logging in and playing throughout the year. “As commissioner, I moved my dynasty league over to Fleaflicker and my league-mates have never been more satisfied.”

"I can play in more leagues than any other site and the best feature of all, is that it's totally 100% free to play."
Background

Sid G. from Saint Joseph, MO eats, breathes and sleeps fantasy sports. He is an avid fantasy player who participates in many leagues year-round. He didn't want to be limited to any number of leagues. Unfortunately, his old host, ESPN, did just that.

Challenge

At ESPN, Sid had a hard limit on the number of leagues he could participate in. For Sid, having all his leagues under a single account is important because he plays in so many different formats with different groups of friends.

Solution

On Fleaflicker, Sid is the commissioner of dozens of leagues. “I switched to Fleaflicker many years ago and I find it the best site for fantasy sports,” Sid said. Fleaflicker's wide-ranging options and customizable stats give Sid all the fantasy tools he needs.

Results

Since making the switch from ESPN, Sid has participated in thousands of head-to-head matchups on Fleaflicker (and his fantasy trophy case is equally impressive). “Fleaflicker allows me to customize my league with more options than any of the other sites. Easy to use, tons of flexibility and all for free,” Sid told us. And although Sid started out on Fleaflicker playing just fantasy football, it wasn't long before he added fantasy baseball, fantasy basketball and fantasy hockey teams to his account as well.

Sam R. Chicago, IL

"Fleaflicker tops them all!"
Background

Sam R. from Chicago, IL doesn't settle for average. As commissioner of the Very Serious League, he runs a 5-keeper fantasy football league that used CBS Sports, ESPN and Yahoo! in the past. He moved to Fleaflicker in 2012 because he needed all transaction data at his fingertips—fast.

Challenge

The members of Very Serious League are, in fact, very serious about how they play fantasy football. They needed access to stats and transaction data in a clear, easy to digest format. Sam resorted to tracking this data manually in a spreadsheet, which quickly became unmanageable.

Solution

Fleaflicker keeps track of all transactions and provides a comprehensive draft history for each season. “I've used Yahoo!, CBS and ESPN before. Between all the various customizations, the above average systems of organizing player and transaction data, and the unparalleled support, I can't imagine going back to another site,” Sam said.

Results

After Sam switched to Fleaflicker, he found his commissioner duties became much easier, and he ditched the cumbersome spreadsheets. “Fleaflicker worked with me to set up custom rules and settings for my league so that I could run our league exactly as imagined.”
