fantasy sports meets math class

This is is a brilliant idea. I once taught a summer science class to a group of 5th and 6th graders, and was constantly racking my brain for ways to relate the class material to their everyday lives.

I haven't played fantasy football in two years now (the managers in my league were super hardcore and keeping up meant that I was checking fantasy news several times a day), but during the years that I did play, I was constantly calculating and recalculating scores on game day. I'm sure a creative teacher could come up with some kind of math-related ranking scheme too; there are some pretty complicated spreadsheets out there for evaluating fantasy players.
