Carty, former Fantasy Manager for two of the biggest sabermetric websites available, BaseballProspectus.com and HardBallTimes.com, will bring his statistical background to FI for the 2014 daily fantasy MLB season. Not only will Carty -- who has been published by ESPN, NBC, FOX, SI, and USA Today -- help anchor a strong group of MLB contributors providing written content, but he will also allow FI members to access his projection system.
Carty has been working on his projection system for the past 2 years. The projection system, currently unnamed, combines an underlying projection with contextual factors that affect play on a daily basis.
Carty says of the partnership:
Starting Monday, March 31st, members will be able to access in-depth pitcher and hitter analysis at FantasyInsiders.com. In addition to Carty, Fantasy Insiders co-founder Ben Pritchett will be contributing to the daily articles. Pritchett was a 2013 Top 5 MLB Expert according to FantasyPros.com and like Carty brings an analytical background to the daily articles. Also joining the daily content rotation will be familiar faces Dave Loughran, Davis Mattek, and Ryan Hodge.
This spring Fantasy Insiders will introduce their premium membership plan, which will include daily research articles and custom daily fantasy research tools. Carty’s projection system will be an add-on to that membership plan.
“Since we launched last fall, the goal of Fantasy Insiders has always been to bring quality research and entertainment to the daily fantasy industry,” said co-founder David Kitchen. “We’re thrilled because we feel like we’re taking a big step in that direction by bringing Derek on board for our daily fantasy baseball product.”
