National Football League fantasy football players – an estimated 27 million of them – are counting down to September 9, 2010, the start of the NFL season.
To its devoted players, fantasy football is about way more than fun or fancy.
According to Henry Bass, "Selecting a fantasy football team is a math, science and art all to itself."
That's why Bass and his colleagues developed fantasy football league draft software pcDrafter.
Added 8/29/12: PC Drafter 12.0 released in time for 2012 season
From the pcDrafter site:
pcDrafter is software that you install on your PC to take the guesswork out of your fantasy football draft. During a draft, it needs no Internet connection, but before the draft, with optional registration and Internet access, it can automatically download the latest player projections directly to its powerful optimization engine. pcDrafter does a zillion calculations and sees patterns not humanly possible to find in 2 seconds. Your savvy FF mind plus pcDrafter equals an unbeatable draft. pcDrafter features automatic player updates from 4for4.com.
The "zillion calculations" through pcDrafter's algorithm made possible by today's computing power lay the foundation for the software founders' claim: "pcDrafter software gives you a highly effective platform to both prepare for your draft and to crush your competition during the drafting itself."
