This post outlines how to download our fantasy football projections, which include more sources of projections than any other site and are the most accurate fantasy football projections available. You can download projections that are customized to your league settings, using a “wisdom of the crowd” approach that combines more sources of projections than any other website. The projections are calculated by weighting projection sources according to their historical accuracy. You can even choose how much weight to give each source. Note that in order to download historical projections, you’ll need an FFA Insider subscription or access to our API. Our historical seasonal performance data go back to 2008. Our historical weekly projections go back to 2015.
