Abstract

Our project was sponsored by Advanced Sports Logic to assist in the development of fantasy football team management software. We helped develop mathematical formulas and statistical models that will allow for the most precise approximations given the constraints imposed by the computer on which the software is implemented, as well as the time limit imposed in a fantasy football draft. The software is designed to assist fantasy football team owners in selecting players in a draft, as well as provide trade, keeper, waiver, and starting lineup recommendations throughout the season, to give them the best chances of winning their league.
