“Whether you’re sitting at 4-3, below .500, or just want to stay on top of your league, Blitz is the perfect tool to pair with our award-winning Yahoo Sports Fantasy app and help take your team to the next level,” Yahoo said in a blog announcing Blitz.
By syncing directly with your fantasy football team on Yahoo Sports, you can even use the new bot to directly swap out players, pick up free agents, and get the most up-to-date information on who you want on your team in order to beat the rest of the league.
This certainly isn’t Yahoo’s only foray into football. Recently, the company released an Alexa skill that allowed users to pose questions like, “Alexa, ask Yahoo Fantasy Football if Cam Newton will play this week?” It also lets you analyze your team and check out stats for any player in the NFL.
Blitz joins a number of other Yahoo Bots on the Yahoo Bots app, including Yahoo Weather, Yahoo Finance, Yahoo News, and Monkey Pets. You can download all the bots (including Blitz) from the App Store or Play Store.
