Every year, people around the globe put 100s of hours into analysing fantasy sports picks.

At the top end, their analysis can be incredibly detailed and use complex statistical modelling. These advanced statistics have even helped win championships in baseball. The top players will often share their analysis with other players in podcasts or on forums such as Reddit.

This platform will take the addictive and fun nature of fantasy sports games and apply it to trading stocks. Both for fun and for money, to encourage further participation in the stock market and also to encourage more detailed analysis before making investment decisions.
