$100 32-Team IDP Analytics-Based League (1 Viewer)


The Football Analytics Fantasy Lab is looking for uber-competitive fantasy GMs to fill 2 franchise vacancies for our 11th annual contest. We are a data-minded, 32-team NFL-like redraft fantasy league created to simulate real NFL team management. The FAFL is a full-IDP money league with an analytics-based scoring system that creates NFL-like player valuations. Our target fantasy GM is the overly-competitive stat head and wannabe NFL GM who craves a more in-depth and realistic fantasy football experience.

If you’re interested in a dynasty league experience that fully models the true NFL GM experience, the FAFL is the perfect redraft appetizer. Successful FAFL franchise owners get top priority every February for franchise vacancies in our 32-team salary cap/contract partner league, the Analytics Dynasty League (the most realistic NFL GM experience on the internet).

The FAFL was featured on the RotoViz Podcast in 2015 because of our innovative approach to a more realistic fantasy football format, and we’ve improved every year since. FAFL GMs have included Big Data Bowl champions and have worked in analytics departments for the Buffalo Bills, ESPN Stats & Info, Miami Marlins, Toronto Blue Jays, Pro Football Focus, and more.
