In our office the first full weekend of NFL games is pretty close to national holiday material.
It's that time of year again.
Where Saturdays, Sundays, and Monday nights are officially blocked off for hundreds of millions of people and blur into one endless period of touchdowns, cheering, and buffalo wings. That's right, it's football season, and if you're anything like us you've been spending time over the past week getting ready, including drafting your Fantasy Football team to bring home your league championship and bragging rights among your friends and family.
Today we're announcing support for Fantasy Sports, including Fantasy Football, in the Headlines API. Developers can tap into the latest news and analysis from ESPN's Fantasy experts including Matthew Berry, Eric Karabell, Tristan Cockcroft, Stephania Bell, and more. Getting the latest on who to start and sit each week, sleeper picks and pickups, weekly player rankings, and injury updates has never been easier.
