Driven by fantasy football and coverage of the NFL, college football and MLB play-offs, ESPN saw its fourth largest total all-time ratings in the sports category in October 2015.

According to Nielsen, the sports network reached 91.8 million unique visitors in the US in the month and now owns 14 of the top 15 all-time monthly unique visitor totals in the sports category.

The October comScore multi-platform report also found that fans spent 9.2 billion minutes using ESPN digital properties, and ESPN accounted for 28.5% of all time spent on digital platforms in the sports category, 23% more than the No 2 property. ESPN attracted one billion total visits (the fourth time it has crossed the one billion visit threshold), more than the second and third sports properties combined.
