Thuuz Sports is another fully featured app that goes beyond offering the standard fantasy football manager. It includes plentiful info on all major sports, including a swipeable interface that shows schedules.

The app also offers alerts and a tracking tool for finding where you can watch games online or on TV. The fantasy section lets you import teams from CBS Sports, ESPN, FleaFlicker, FoxSports, NFL.com, and Yahoo.
