dc.description.abstract Players are ranked almost solely based on previous years’ fantasy points (i.e. 2008-2012). Fantasy points are totaled for each year, and then given a weight based on how close the year was to the current year. Weights were also given to each player based on how consistent their performance was throughout the five years. These weights were given based on each game’s performance. After the ranking is finished, a simulation will be performed. Ten different teams will draft a fantasy team using ten different strategies, and one of the ten will use the new ranking system. Assuming all ESPN standard rules, a full season using 2013 National Football League data will be simulated to test which drafting strategy is the best.
