ESPN fantasy football failed its users on the first Sunday of the season … again.
Fantasy football users not wise enough to use Yahoo worldwide were disappointed during most of the 1 p.m. ET slate of NFL games during Week 1 when they had hoped to check on the progress of their fantasy teams, only to find that both the ESPN fantasy app and webpage didn't work due to overuse.
The same thing happened last year.
Sure, the ESPN fantasy bootball app broke a record in the sports category with 94.4 unique users in 2015, but one would expect that, after learning their lesson a season ago, ESPN and its servers would be ready to pass with flying colors to prove their detractors wrong.
The ESPN Fantasy app is down. But in fairness they probably weren't expecting much traffic today

I'm glad the ESPN Fantasy app crashed so I can go back to enjoying football the old fashion way… by gambling on the point spread.
