MQP 2012-Pigskin Party: A Statistical Analysis on Fantasy Football and “The Machine”

This project used a variety of different mathematical techniques to improve upon Advanced Sports Logic’s fantasy football software product known as ‘The Machine.’ The team looked at the mathematics behind some of the functions used within the software and recommended changes accordingly. Additionally, the team also worked on creating a new product within ‘The Machine’ which projects statistics throughout the course of a season. The team concluded that the contents of this project could be expanded upon and recommended how to do so consequently.
