STATS sports technology, data and content company, has been recognized for the accuracy of its fantasy football and baseball projections by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) in a head-to-head competition among industry leaders.
The FSTA Accuracy Contest is run by FantasyPros and awards were presented at the FSTA’s annual winter conference last week in Las Vegas, NV. STATS’ fantasy football projections finished first in the season long accuracy contest, while its week-to-week football projections finished second.

STATS’ excellence extended beyond the gridiron, its season long fantasy baseball projections finished first as well.
