Fantasy players are looking for an edge in every matchup with one ultimate goal in mind: Win a trophy, then remind their leaguemates of the achievement at every possible opportunity.

For some, this means spending countless hours on exhaustive research. Others simply lean on advice from the band of Yahoo Fantasy analysts. But every player is searching for some advantage over the competition.

We can’t blame you — and that’s why we’ve been busy working behind the scenes to make that fantasy dream a reality. We're happy to announce we have a new way to gain a greater advantage in your fantasy life, while also saving you time and effort.

Yahoo Fantasy Plus is a subscription service that enhances the fantasy experience by providing the following tools:

  • Research Assistant: Quickly compare players with an easy-to-use interface and make informed decisions on who to sit/start and add/drop with the help of premium data & exclusive insights from Yahoo Fantasy Diamond level players.

  • Start Optimal Players: Upgrade the Start Active Players tool by making sure the best players are in your lineup each day or for the entire week with the click of a button

  • Trade Insights: Unlock strengths and weaknesses at every position for each team in the league to help facilitate trades.

  • Advanced Stats: Take player analysis to the next level by unlocking advanced statistics on the My Team and Players pages, as well as the Research Assistant.

This is just the beginning for Yahoo Fantasy Plus, so take advantage of the introductory price of $8/year and unlock these features on all platforms for all fantasy games. You can check the features out during a 7-day free trial and even get $5 in rewards points to use to enter any paid fantasy game.

On top of Yahoo Fantasy Plus, we're also thrilled to introduce Draft Together, a free video chat feature that allows private leagues to interact with each other during a fantasy draft. Plenty of us have participated in more virtual calls than we'd care to remember over the past year, but here's one that's entirely enjoyable (and can only be enhanced via appearances by pets and/or children). The groundbreaking Draft Together feature will be available for fantasy baseball on desktop only for now — mobile is coming soon. Trash talk is always best served face-to-face.

These two additions to the Yahoo Fantasy roster simplify the choice of where to play. Start your Yahoo Fantasy Plus free trial today, and don't forget there's still time to get in on the fantasy baseball season with us, too.

We look forward to a great year!
