Dominate your league with The Machine, fantasy software for your draft, sit start and waiver wire decisions, and trade analysis

It's like having a team of draft experts and statistics geeks in your war room.

Get the edge you need to win. The Machine fantasy software provides powerful tools that help you win by automatically loading your league's scoring rules, rosters and matchup schedules and patent-pending win-based math to season-long weekly projections from industry-leading experts ProFootball Focus Fantasy, Fantasy Sharks, and Fantasy Football Metrics.


  • Draft Recommendations: Fully sync'ed to your live draft, The Machine's win-based math is the core of what makes The Machine's draft pick recommendations tool the most powerful fantasy draft tool available. Addition draft tools include:
    • Supports offline drafts with easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface
    • Simulate your draft to see how The Machine values players based on your league's rules
    • Evaluate draft pick trades to see what helps your draft most
  • Lineup Recommendations: Leave fewer points on the bench each week by letting The Machine help with your critical lineup decisions.
  • Waiver Recommendations: Improve your roster each week by letting The Machine help you find your best waiver wire moves. The Machine not only helps you improve your roster for the current week, but also anticipates and optimizes for future needs such as maximizing playoff performance.
  • Trade Evaluator: See how possible trades impact your probability to win. Using win-based math, The Machine's trade analyzer does far more than add fantasy points and shows you the real benefit for your team.
  • Trade Finder: By mastering the art of trading you gain an extra edge that gives you the highest probability to win. With Trade Finder you enter which players, positions, and teams you are interesting in trading and The Machine returns the trades that help your team the most but are also likely to be acceptable by your opponent.
