Our guest today is KC Joyner, a fantasy football guru and pioneer of the football analytics revolution, featured on ESPN and The Athletic. He is Founder of The Football Scientist, a data analytics subscription service designed to help you win your fantasy football league. 

KC left his career in telecom to pursue a lifelong dream of writing a Bill James-style book about football. 19 months later, his detailed tape breakdowns of the 2003 and 2004 season led to the self-publication of Joyner’s groundbreaking book Scientific Football in 2005. 

Since his first book was released, he has joined forced with the likes of ESPN and most recently the writing team at The Athletic. KC is a nationally published author and his other books include Blindsided, Why the Left Tackle is Overrated and Other Contrarian Football Thoughts. 

In today’s episode, we discuss KC’s background and how the The Football Scientist publication came to be. We then dive in to the quant approach he uses for fantasy football and how it could help you win your league this year, with several stops in between. 

Our hosts today are Steve Curley, CFA, and Colby Donovan, current board members (and Past Presidents) of CFA Society Orlando. Please enjoy the episode.
