Multi-stream Data Analytics for Enhanced Performance Prediction in Fantasy Football [Pre-Print]

http://aics2019.datascienceinstitute.ie/papers/aics_27.pdf Abstract. Fantasy Premier League (FPL) performance predictors tend to base their algorithms purely on historical statistical data. The main problems with this approach is that external factors such as injuries, managerial decisions and other tournament match statistics can never be factored into the final predictions. In this paper, we Read more…
