Maths at: Fantasy Football (Part 2)

The first episode got us all up to speed as to what on earth Fantasy Football was all about. The Maths at: team is now ready to plunder the depths of Josh's strategies and Thomas has been editing in haste. 

We can 100% guarantee that if you follow the strategy as specifed by Josh you will be in with a chance of winning and that's no Bull.


Once again your regulars, Ben and Thomas, are joined by the knowledgable Hannah Veale and the intriguing Josh Bull. Gather round as they seek answers to such questions as:

  • is it luck, or is it skill?
  • is it better to have consistent scorers, or one off star strikers?
  • why is everyone regressing to the mean?

Of course, the simple answer is that you get reddit to do the hard work for you! See how in today's podcast.

Maths at: Fantasy Football (Part 1)

WELCOME TO A NEW DIMENSION OF MATHS AT:

We recorded our first ever video, so that we may delight your eyes, as well as your ear canals. However, for those of you still living in the 20th century we've stripped the video off. Of course, you'll miss the visual tom foolery, but we're sure that your imagination can fill in the blanks.

Fantasy football is the name of the game today and your regulars Ben and Thomas are joined by the knowledgable Hannah Veale and the intriguing Josh Bull. Josh recently topped the Fantasy Premier League and we though we'd take the time to interview him about his secrets.

 At least, that was the plan.

Unfortunately, the idea of "fantasy" led Thomas astray. So if you're interested in knowing the answers to such questions as:

  • Why isn’t Gandalf available in fantasy football?
  • Would Gandalf would be a good striker?
  • Would Gandalf be a good head of a university?

Then we're the podcast for you!
