Good afternoon Foot Clan,
I’m a fellow listener and a software engineer. I like building tools to help me everyday and this year, I’ve been thinking a lot about how I would improve the tools I use for fantasy football (i.e. ESPN, fantasypros, thefantasyfootballers, etc…). In the upcoming offseason, I’m hoping to build and test out a few of the tools I’d like to have for next year. If it goes well and I find it useful, then I wouldn’t mind opening it up to the Foot Clan to test it out and get feedback.
What I want to do is to create a fantasy football website/app that improves the experience for the committed fantasy player. I find that ESPN limits how easy it is to analyze certain aspects of my league in-depth, such as trading, comparing players side by side, and spotting trends and consistency.
Using this website as an example, this forum provides a much better writing/message experience than ESPN. If you’ve never used the message board or email feature in ESPN… it’s like pulling teeth.
My question to you is, what are some features or things that you wish existed or could be improved in the fantasy football tools that you use to get ahead in your leagues?
