Beat Your Manager!
For: Android, iOS
Beat Your Manager! is the first Premier League fantasy football second screen app that lets players manage their favourite club and make decisions during live play, to see if you can beat the performance of real-life managers.
The game uses an advanced statistical scoring method based on ‘Moneyball’ statistical principles. It gets around the problem of scoring players who don’t play in real life by predicting their most likely score for that game.
Combining this approach with match day player performance data from Opta, the game creates a unique per-player score, and allows the game’s logic to pit players against each other, and their team’s manager. Players will also be able to set up private leagues among their friends, workplaces, schools, forums and see if they can beat each other in decision-making across the season.
