I'll be the first to admit it - although I run a sports analytics website, I'm not an oracle. I'm not an all-knowing entity. In total, I'm in four fantasy football leagues and in one of them, I'm toasted. MJD killed me, injuries hit me at the worst times, and boom - no more season in that league for me.
So what did I do to fill the void? I turned to the great lurking behemiel of our industry, daily fantasy and let me tell you, I'm hooked. I love it - not only because it gives me another option for one of my life's great hobbies but it gives me a capitalist vector for me to use numberFire's projections to put a true hurting on people. And put a hurting on them I have!
