Now that the lockout is FINALLY OVER, we can start talking about more important things, like Fantasy Football. SB Nation and Yahoo! Sports have teamed up to bring you the official fantasy football league of Stampede Blue.

Yahoo! Fantasy Football supports SB Nation and pigskin awesomeness. It’s also the No. 1 Fantasy Football game thanks to dazzling player research, instant stats with free live scoring, iPhone, Android, and iPad apps this season. Plus, new scoring categories for long receptions and rush plays.

Matt Grecco and I are in the process of building the 'official' leagues for our readers. The main reason I am VERY happy that we have an agreement with Yahoo! is that Yahoo! Sports is the leading fantasy provider on the Internet, home to nearly 5 million fans playing the #1 fantasy football game available – all for free!

Here are some quick facts about the partnership and the leagues we're building:

  • Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Football '11 is easy to use, with mock drafts, player comparisons features, and numerous customization options. Plus Yahoo! Sports offers superior stability, especially during drafts and games (Yahoo! Sports fantasy football doesn't drop the ball) Yahoo! Sports fantasy football provides fans with top-notch information, resources, and expert advice.
  • From player notes to injury updates to Fantasy Football Live (http://fantasysports.yahoo.com/ffl) – Yahoo! Sports helps you win big. Fantasy football is the original social network, it is the way friends stayed connected over football no matter where they were, Yahoo! Sports continues the tradition by letting fans talk smack talk, check'in, and chat on newly launched message boards. Fantasy football isn't newspapers and fax machines anymore, fans are on the go and Yahoo! Sports lets fantasy football users manage their teams no matter where they are via mobile phones, iPads (new this year), and other mobile devices.
