The gents at ESPN have uploaded their fantasy football app for the 2011 NFL season. This is great timing compared to last year which saw the app released only two days before the start of the season. More than the app has made its way to the Android market in a timely fashion, though, ESPN has gone ahead and dropped the $5 they were asking for last year.

That’s quite a decent step, I’d say. The usual suspects are in as far as features go, but hurry to the Android market to be sure you’re set to go before the NFL Kickoff on Thursday, September 8th for the defending Super Bowl Champions Green Bay Packers’ home opener against the New Orleans Saints. Full feature set is below. [Market via Androinica]
