$80 Full IDP Analytics-Based League

Recommended Posts

The Football Analytics Fantasy Lab is looking for dedicated owners to fill a few franchise vacancies for its 7th annual competition. We are a data-minded, 32-team NFL-like redraft fantasy league created to simulate real NFL team management. The FAFL is a full-IDP money league with an analytics-based scoring system that creates for NFL-like player valuations. Our target team owner is the competitive stat-head and wannabe NFL GM who craves a more in-depth and realistic fantasy football experience.

If you’re interested a dynasty league experience that fully models the true NFL GM experience, the FAFL is the place to start. Successful FAFL franchise owners get top priority for new franchise openings in our 32-team salary cap/contract partner league, the Analytics Dynasty League..

The FAFL was featured on RotoViz's "The Numbers Game Podcast" on July 16, 2015 because of our innovative approach to a more realistic fantasy football format: http://rotoviz.com/2015/07/numbers-game-shane-t-jensen-professor-statistics-wharton-school-episode-7/
