NumberFire – Win Your Office Football Pool

Looking for ways to beat the competition in your fantasy football league this season? NumberFire might just be the answer. The web-app can help people involved in fantasy football leagues make decisions about which players to start each week based on an analysis of real-time statistics and historical results, rather than emotion.

If you’re in it to win it, then you’ll want to check out NumberFire for some additional insight before selecting your players each week. Create an account, and then get started browsing through the players on your roster. If you’ve already drafted players in your own fantasy football pool, then you’ll want to “follow” each of the players on your team. NumberFire will deliver predictions for each player that you decide to follow based on a proprietary algorithm that takes into account current statistics, player characteristics, and historical records. Before each game, you can check out NumberFire to get a more detailed look at how each of your players is expected to stack up against their upcoming opponents in a head-to-head situation. Using all the information on hand, NumberFire is able to come up with definitive projections that you can use to decide who to play and who to trade before each game.

In addition to its useful projection tools, NumberFire also has a handful of user forums where fantasy football aficionados can trade information and a daily poll where people can vote on any number of football-related topics. For people who love playing in fantasy football leagues and hate to lose at anything, NumberFire is a smart investment.
