Welcome! This site is devoted to fantasy sports analysis, with a particular emphasis on strategy. Through February, the focus was on basketball. Beginning in March, I plan to expand this site to cover March Madness and to begin preseason baseball coverage. Come back often to check on progress.
What you will find at this site:
Here you can find essays and tips on fantasy sports strategy, as well as up to date player data to help you manage your fantasy sports teams. As an avid fantasy sports player myself, I've used these strategies very successfully to manage my own teams, and I'm sure they can improve your teams' performance as well. I've also included links to other sites which I find to be helpful in managing my teams.
What you will not find at this site:
In general, this site is devoted to the quantitative or technical aspects of fantasy sports strategy. It will not help you assess player talent. That is your job as a fantasy sports manager. Plus, there are plenty of sites available to help you evaluate players.
Two specific fantasy sports games are addressed so far. Click on the links below to find material specific to each game:

Why am I doing this? Mainly, because I lovefantasy sports. I have substantial professional experience in math, actuarial science, and investment management, and I find that these disciplines offer much in the way of fantasy sports strategy. Some day, I may decide to develop and run my own fantasy games. But before I can even consider that, I need to attract a following. So, this is not only a labor of love, but possibly the genesis of a longer term fantasy sports empire. (I like to think big!)
While I will use a number of means to attract fantasy sports players to my site, word of mouth references from current users will be one of the most important ways to spread the word. So please, if you like what you find here, pass the word to your fantasy sports friends.
If you have comments to make or questions to raise, send me an email. I'll post submissions which appear to have broad interest on my related feedback pages.
As I add new features to the site, I'd be happy to send you an email to let you know. Just take a moment to register.
