It's fall, which means there are countless fantasy football leagues swinging back into gear, but post-draft, you have lots of decisions that you need to make to ensure your team makes it into the playoffs. WalterPicks is an AI-driven app that will help keep your team performing at its peak.
Rather than insights based purely on stats, WalterPicks uses an AI engine to provide more data-driven insights after being trained on millions of data points. Your usual data is here, such as rankings of players — as well as where they are trending, advanced player stats, and a live draft tool.
The two tools that I use most throughout the season though, is the sit/start analyzer and trade comparison. The start/sit tool lets you choose two players which then gives you a recommendation on who should start and who should sit on your bench. It gives you what WalterPicks calls the boom/bust probability, showing a hill chart of how well it thinks that player will do and a breakdown of that players opponent’s defense which can also impact how well they perform. It’s incredibly cool. The trade analyzer is great too, giving a clear visual breakdown of who is being traded and what their value is. It even calculates your team projection based on the trade outcome.
There are so many different fantasy football apps on the App Store but most of them look like generic spreadsheets that are pulling in outside data with little-to-no thought in how the app looks or works. WalterPicks has the feeling of a sleek, native app, using the latest AI trends, and great visuals to make stuff easy to understand.
Unlike some of the more generic apps, this one also can sync directly with your league. Using those open APIs, your whole league and team will show in the app. During the draft, it tracks in real time, showing who everyone has drafted and who you should to draft. Finally, there is weekly advice from WalterPicks, giving you suggestions on any players you should grab from the waiver wire and who you should trade. If you’re in a fantasy football league, this app is certainly worth checking out.
But enough about other people's apps.
