Creating aggregate projections is a quick way to obtain a high level of accuracy within your daily fantasy lineups. When you aggregate independent projections, you’re factoring out biases that are undoubtedly inherent to each set of individual projections. Expert Y might be off in his projection of a particular player and Expert Z might be a little less off, but combined, they’ll tend to be closer to the “truth” than by themselves.

Aggregate projections have proven to beat out the majority of individual projections over the long run. In addition to their accuracy, they’re also efficient; it takes a matter of minutes to create aggregate projections in Excel, which can save you time in other areas of your daily fantasy research.
