FSTA ANNOUNCES “2013 FANTASY FOOTBALL ACCURACY CHALLENGE”
Saturday, August 31, 2013
Posted by: Meg Van Petten
The Fantasy Sports Trade Association is requesting submissions from all interested in participating in the "2013 Fantasy Football Accuracy Challenge.”
The FSTA, in conjunction with Sara Holladay (Fantasy Football Librarian), Donnie Campbell (The Most Credible) and Bill Green (Fantasy Dispute), will be analyzing fantasy football projections and position rankings from participants. The projections and position rankings will be compared with actual player statistics at the end of the 2013 season, and awards will be presented based on the accuracy of those predictions.
2012 Fantasy Football Projection Results
1. Draft Sharks
2. Pro Football Focus
3. CBS Sports (Dave Richards)
2012 Fantasy Football Rankings Results
1. RealTime Fantasy Sports
3. Fantasy Pros
Submissions will be accepted immediately; however the rankings and projections (in any verifiable format) must be received prior to the first game of the season, Sept. 5, 2013 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
Each entrant has a little over two weeks after the Sept. 5 deadline (Sept. 22) to submit the rankings and projections in the FSTA Format (see both the rankings template and the projections template found on the FSTA website). Please note that the rankings and/or projections in the templates must match those that were submitted prior to the initial deadline. Late entrants will be considered if it is verifiable that their rankings or projections were published and publicly available prior to the deadline.
Player rankings and statistics will be judged for the following positions: Quarterback, Running Back, Wide Receiver and Tight End. Team Defenses, Kickers and Individual Defensive Players will not be used due to non-standard scoring.
The FSTA will present two awards (Player Rankings and Player Projections) for the "2013 Fantasy Football Projection Accuracy Challenge.” All entrants are welcome to participate in either challenge or both.
For a complete list of rules and entry information, go to this special page at FSTA.org.
Submissions should be sent simultaneously to FSTA.Accuracy.Contest@gmail.com, Donnie Campbell at email@example.com, Bill Green at firstname.lastname@example.org, and Sara Holladay at email@example.com.
Awards will be presented at the 2014 FSTA Winter Conference sponsored by Star Fantasy Leagues, Jan. 15-16 in Las Vegas.
In order to encourage participation (without fear of embarrassment), final results will NOT be published, except for the names of all entrants and the names of the highest ranking entrants (approximately the top third).
