After many requests for an update on this blog post last year detailing carryover points for the upcoming season, I have decided to pull the finger out and write the code to turn this into a permanent feature. Thus we now have a Tribunal page which will update itself throughout the season with a list of which current AFL players have carryover points and/or loading from previous suspensions.
I will do the same for the Bubble Boy and Rollercoaster features on the blog after round 3, which will save me a lot of naffing around for me in future if nothing else!
I remain open to suggestions for new features like this, which are merely summations of existing data. In particular, I still haven’t seen a good suggestion for a player comparison page. I think I mentioned that in the last housekeeping post. If anyone has any good ideas, don’t hesitate to comment and I’ll probably shoot them down in a ball of flames. No no, I mean I shall be receptive and thankful! Yes, that. 😉
In a first for Australian fantasy, FanFooty is launching a new Projections tool for not only creating your own weekly fantasy point predictions based on historical stats and consensus rankings, but a function to auto-generate an optimised “perfect” lineup for use in weekly and daily fantasy sports!
These are the sort of tools that pros use in American DFS to construct their lineups, and with the rise of DFS in Australia in 2016 FanFooty Projections will become indispensible to the hardcore and the casual fantasy coach! (Note: this feature will become part of this year’s FF Premium product later this year, but for now it’s free.)
