I'm new to the website. I have some fantasy football knowledge/experience. I'm here with a question after talking about my question with several people.
Can skill or ability to win at fantasy football be predicted in advance? Or how good someone is at fantasy football? Knowledge of the NFL that can be memorized, such as who represented the AFC in the Pro Bowl last year, obviously helps form a baseline of knowledge, but it doesn't really aid in playing fantasy football successfully at the highest levels because fantasy football is about more than just the best players. It's about matchups, weather conditions, coaching, who has what to play for (playoff position, resting starters) etc. So is there/would there be a way to try to predict how someone will do in fantasy football? Or is there a way to measure how good someone actually is at fantasy football? If someone drafted the best team on paper, but because of injuries or other reasons their team didn't perform well in the league, are they still a good fantasy football player?
I'm hoping to get a lot of responses and a good discussion going. Thanks!
