Fantasy Football Assistant


Welcome to the Fantasy Football Assistant web site. Fantasy Football Assistant (also referred to as FFA) is a freeware software program designed to help fantasy league commissioners run a league. If you are frustrated with the on-line leagues that don't allow you to set up and run your league the way you want to, then this is the program for you! FFA has many configurable options to set up and run the league according to your rules. FFA was first marketed in 1989 and an update has been supplied every year since then.

The software program is free to use. You can manually enter each week's stats. But if you don't want to go through the trouble of manually entering stats, there is an option to download and import weekly stats. There is a charge of $60 for the weekly stats. Please note that if you have your own system and just want to get weekly stats you can just order the stats as the stats are available in text, csv and xml formats.

Fantasy Football Assistant is a 32 bit Windows program, , which requires a 32 or 64 bit operating system such as Windows 9x, Windows 2000, ME, NT, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10. If you are having problems running FFA with Vista or later operating system, please click here to view detailed instructions on how to use the Program Compatibility Wizard to get FFA to work with your operating system. Also note that this is a desktop application and not a web application, although there are features in FFA to help with interacting with a web site for your league such as a built in FTP file manager and ability to create web pages for team owners to submit starting lineups.



The 2019 version which is now Freeware is available for download.
