Fantasy Football 401

Course overview

Welcome to Fantasy Football 401.  This is an advanced course in fantasy football and will focus on leagues which use Individual Defensive Players (IDP).  The fall semester will feature weekly in-season content on Defensive Tackle starting and streaming decisions for leagues which require this position.  New this season is some content on DE's for the deepest of deep IDP leagues! The spring iteration of the course will focus on combined OFF/IDP rookie drafts and some light start-up draft analysis.  The summer section is more laid back and will feature one new lesson each month on a variety of general IDP topics.

Enjoy and have a great semester!

Week 13 DT rankings and streaming options...

About The Professor

By day, I am an Assistant Professor of Management at the University of Kentucky where I study and teach HR (primarily analytics).  I have been leveraging data to get a better understanding of fantasy football since I started playing "mail-in" leagues in the 1990s and IDP leagues in the mid 2000s.
