Football season starts today in the United States, a great opportunity to engage sports-minded students in math. It takes more than physical muscle to win at football – it also takes muscle between the ears!
But now students can apply those concepts to the things they do for fun – like football.
Fantasy Football 101: The Economics of Winning Your League, from Learn Liberty, sparks students to examine questions like “Should I draft this first-round running back?” or “On which players should I spend the most?”, and overcome emotional pitfalls like “trade anxiety” (the fear of losing a trade).

- Football Law: Changing the Rules of the Game
- Why do Rules Matter?
- Opportunity Cost
- Setting Your Line-Up
- And many more.
