With the 2011 football season right around the corner, and fans plotting and preparing their fantasy football teams, TIBCO Spotfire® is offering a free, Web-based analytics application to help them field this year's winning team. The 2011 Fantasy Football Draft Analyzer offers an easy-to-use interactive data analysis environment that gives fans the ability to analyze key football data across multiple players and positions – all in order to discover unique insights that can help them gain a competitive edge for the 2011-2012 football season.

The Fantasy Football Draft Analyzer assesses 2010 season data by player position including quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends, along with team depth and scoring charts across multiple statistics. For specific player analysis, fans have the ability to drill down using various filters and visualizations to discover statistics such as the amount of passing yards, passing touchdowns, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, and average points scored. The team depth and scoring charts let users drill down to both the team and player level to see yards passed, passed touchdowns, average points per game, total points scored, and more.

"Building a fantasy football team can be quite challenging because of the amount of data that one has to both find and sort through," said Roger Craig, three-time Super Bowl champion and business development executive with TIBCO Software Inc. "An intuitive visual application, TIBCO Spotfire's football analyzer solves this problem by allowing users like myself to quickly and easily analyze all the key statistical information about players and teams to uncover hidden insights and make the best draft pick choices possible."

Additionally, for football fans that want to dig even deeper, TIBCO Spotfire offers the ability to discover how easy and powerful analytics can be by letting fans create their own fantasy football analysis application. By utilizing a free, 30-day trial of TIBCO Spotfire® Analytics, fans are able to download the 2010 season data locally in order to analyze the content as desired.
