The comprehensive study evaluated over 30 of the top writers, analysts, and sites from both free and subscription based fantasy content companies. Each expert’s weekly player rankings provided the data for the assessment. A few of these sites did not meet the minimum requirements of the study and were not included in the final public rankings. In addition to the overall rankings, FantasyPros.com provides accuracy ratings for each of the common positions played in fantasy football. Every expert’s ranking across each of these positions can be found by registering for free at http://www.FantasyPros.com.
“Our goal is to promote the best fantasy sites and experts by giving them a level playing field that simply and objectively answers the question, how good is your advice?” said David Kim, Co-Founder of FantasyPros.com. “The accuracy rankings provide one reference point that helps players streamline their research process. The average fantasy football player is inundated with a never ending supply of unfiltered information and advice. FantasyPros.com collects, organizes, and rates this information so players can get the advice they want, from the pros they trust.”
There have been other fantasy football accuracy studies, but the FantasyPros.com methodology is unique in that it rates accuracy based on the actual benefit that fantasy players receive from following the expert’s advice. They quantitatively measure – for all 16 weeks of the typical fantasy football season - how accurate each expert’s predictions are, and the incremental value a fantasy player receives for following the expert’s advice. More details on the accuracy methodology can be found by visiting http://www.FantasyPros.com.
