We were tired of bad projections by ESPN, so we decided to create our own algorithms for predicting fantasy outcomes. We developed three algorithms so far for QB, RB, and WR that are already more accurate than ESPN's predictions. Our goal over the weekend was to develop a web application that users can input their lineup, and the application feeds them back projections along with optimizing their 16-man lineup them.
In the future we'd like to take the more advanced machine learning practices and apply them to fantasy giving our users a strict competitive advantage.
Ultimately we want to bring fantasy football, and fantasy sports in general into the modern computing world and see what we can do.
