Abstract

The goal of this project is to create an application that highlights the best features of fantasy basketball while also making it convenient and easy to operate from the user perspective. One of the main problems we discovered with other fantasy applications is that they require a large amount of the user’s time on a regular basis in order to be successful in their respective leagues. This is something the average person may not be able to participate in due to outside factors such as a job and family obligations. In order to address this issue our application is centered on one night commitment fantasy picks where two people go against each other by picking one player each and whichever player performs better and has more fantasy points wins the matchup. The fantasy points are earned based on the all-around stats from that player in that specific game and go through an internal application scaling system to determine exactly who many they receive. The one night commitment system solves the problem that most users who would like to participate in fantasy sports but simply do not have the time and allows them to enjoy the same experience, while being free to choose when they want to participate freely and not be penalized for it.
