I know it's been almost a week since I got back from the FSTA conference last Thursday but it's been pretty hectic. I met a lot of cool people over at the conference and got a better feel of the market and what else is out there. The good news is that several people had heard of Benchcoach and there weren't any direct competitors. I did meet some companies that provided analytics for fantasy football leagues such as Fantasy Football Draft and their Robocoach technology. A lot of drinking and a lot of networking and overall, I came out of the conference pretty happy with the contacts I made. The final night was capped by a trip to a rooftop bar outside of Wrigley Field. I would highly recommend taking a trip to Wrigley and trying to get into one of those roof top bars although they seemed to be mostly private parties.
Here are some pics from the roof top bar.
We recently released a new version of Benchcoach which includes the following new feature: The ability to include your bench players into your projections. This way, if you're in a league that has a larger bench and fewer starting spots, you can now include the bench players contributions into your projections. We're looking to add additional features here that would allow you to just include benched hitters or benched pitchers so keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks.
