The application also breaks down each of the key game factors and provides a host of original information on a weekly basis designed to enhance the global football fan’s enjoyment and interest in the games of their choosing. Now in its third season, Decision Maker is the ultimate sit/start fantasy football tool which contains the most accurate fantasy projections in the industry.
