Lending Credence to Hot Streaks

This summer, FantasyAces.com is turning up the heat with its $250,000 World Baseball Championship. 20 qualifiers will enjoy a 3-night oceanfront vacation in Southern California for the live final at Angel Stadium. So, enter the next FAWBC qualifier and take a swing at this once-in-a-lifetime DFS experience and the $100,000 grand prize!

Ron Shandler published an interesting article on ESPN’s Insider pages this week about hitting hot streaks. In it he cites research published by the Stanford School of Business, which found that hitting hot streaks are indeed predictive of future performance. Of course, they used this study to draw some conclusions about behaviors in economic markets, and while you might have an interest in economics, I’m going to skip all that and stick to what we can learn about this for Fantasy Baseball use.
