It happens every year, the fantasy football February let-down. Super Bowl joy quickly turns into depression. All of you fantasy fanatics know exactly what I am talking about. Saturdays are no longer filled with fantasy value speculation on SiriusXM, significant others stop asking who Kara is and why is "she" emailing you her blog, and no longer do you break into a cold sweat on Sundays, fifteen minutes before kickoff, because you realized Joique Bell is benched, Reggie Bush just went on IR, and ESPN has locked your line-up! Something just doesn't seem right in a fantasy footballer's life from February to August. Oh, you try and fill the void with DVR episodes of Breaking Bad and you try to convince yourself that the Seven Nations Rugby season is a perfectly acceptable replacement for the NFL, but it just doesn't get the job done. So what is the remedy? Research.
I had a hunch, so I asked my fantasy football science friends over at Sports Research LLC to give me an inside view of the traffic flows to their site between February and August. "We see a lot of traffic during the NFL season but a HUGE upswing when the off season hits. Fans need to get their predictions for next season started immediately and our site provides the best fantasy football science on the net," says Winn Jones, Director of Operations.
Jones went on to also tell me that utilizing artificial intelligence, or computers, to predict future fantasy season outcomes has become an art form and highly reliable. You can find more detailed information regarding Sports Research LLC's NFL science HERE.
Fantasy football fanatics everywhere must find an outlet to avoid the off season blues. You can try and convince yourself that the combine, draft and free agency moves will fill the void, but you will still crave fantasy football. Fine-tune your drafting strategies with proper planning and useful statistical information and you will find peace, because with clarity comes control. Heed this advice: begin your research as soon as Russell Wilson hits the after party!
