FF Projections & optimiser

In a first for Australian fantasy, FanFooty is launching a new Projections tool for not only creating your own weekly fantasy point predictions based on historical stats and consensus rankings, but a function to auto-generate an optimised “perfect” lineup for use in weekly and daily fantasy sports!

These are the sort of tools that pros use in American DFS to construct their lineups, and with the rise of DFS in Australia in 2016 FanFooty Projections will become indispensible to the hardcore and the casual fantasy coach! (Note: this feature will become part of this year’s FF Premium product later this year, but for now it’s free.)

FanDex draft rankings tool

FanFooty brings you a new tool called FanDex, for creating and maintaining customised player rankings for your fantasy drafts. Default rankings are based on previous (non-vest) fantasy scores by each player, but you can “nudge” those averages up or down by moving sliders to increase what you think they will average in the upcoming season, either by points or by percentage, or both.

In future, you will be able to export your rankings to formats accepted by major draft fantasy operators. Look out for a daily fantasy (DFS) version coming soon, where you can import your previous nudges from day to day or week to week.

2015 Australian fantasy industry update

Back in the dark ages of fusty history – I’m talking 2011 here, several years after my last foray into the history books – the Australian fantasy industry was taking all before it. With more than 700,000 “coaches” in AFL competitions play-acting at managing their fake teams of real players in fake leagues using real statistics, and other sports adding up to push the local audience for fantasy sports past a million, in a nation of not much more than 20 million people it was looking like it would become as popular as it is in America. Then, something went wrong.
