From one season to another, StatSims brings a whole new level of accuracy to your predictions–helping you get more points with your fantasy team, and possibly, finally netting you a win for that coveted office game pool. When’s the last time you had access to a professional football simulation engine? Now you do, with StatSims.

Tech Cocktail: What is StatSims?

StatSims: StatSims (@statsims) is the first community-driven NFL football prediction site. There are several other game forecasters, but what makes StatSims a wholly unique experience is that we are opening up our 29-year-old SimEngine™ (which is already as accurate as the number one company in the space) to the crowd. This is a large plus because no single analyst can consistently be as accurate as a crowd, we can provide a whole new level of predictions: help fantasy players get the most points from their fantasy team, help fans win their office pools, and even win against the spread. Another benefit? StatSims users create valuable content for media outlets.
