How I Built It: Fantasy Football draft


Author: Zach Hird is a Certified Master Anaplanner and Senior Consultant at Peloton Consulting Group.

Hello Anaplanners!

Learn how I used Anaplan to aid my fantasy football draft experience in this fun and different ‘How I Built It’ tutorial. I use live fantasy football data to give myself a competitive advantage while drafting real fantasy football teams. Using Anaplan pages and unique filtering, I am able to understand which players are optimal and suboptimal to draft in each round according to ranking deviations between various FF platforms. Anaplan makes this analysis seamless and efficient so I can crush my 2023 fantasy football drafts and thus leagues.

  • Hey, @zach_hird! Consider throwing Users on your Select Position Line Item! Also dimension the filter it is driving by Users. This would mean you don't have to click the "Refresh" button each time you change the Select Position value.
