Analytics Internship (Winter/Spring 2023)

So you want to work in fantasy football? Keep reading…

We’re looking for creative thinkers, pursuing a career in the analytics field. With many off-season projects in the pipeline, the analytics intern(s) will be working on a variety of fantasy football research topics, covering multiple formats of fantasy football (Dynasty/Best Ball/DFS/Redraft).

Priority will be given to individuals that are both sharp-minded behind a computer screen, as well as able to convey challenging topics to a less analytically-inclined audience. We want you to be a data story teller, and we will help you become a well-rounded analyst with a strong attention to detail and a voice in this community that’s all your own. 


  • Current college/grad student, or recent graduate
  • Proficiency in R preferred, but will consider strong Python/Excel candidates
  • Strong fantasy football background and intuition, along with prior experience in 2 or more of these formats: Dynasty/Best Ball/DFS/Redraft
  • Working knowledge of PlayerProfiler/RotoUnderworld products a plus, but not required

Interested applicants should send an email to [email protected] with “Analytics Internship Winter 2023” as the subject name. Attach your resume, as well as short answers (under 150 words) to the following questions:

  1. Choose one player who under-performed (excluding injuries) in 2022 that you believe was a good process pick, and explain why – analytically – this is the type of profile you’ll likely draft again next year at their ADP.
  2. Choose one best ball draft strategy or roster construction that you believe drafters should utilize. Explain the fundamental concepts and defend this strategy analytically.
  3. Choose one player who you believe dynasty fantasy football players should be trying to acquire on their rosters, and explain why they are currently underrated.

The analytics intern(s) will have their research featured on PlayerProfiler, discussed on associated podcasts, and the intern(s) may make a guest appearance on the Code Breaker podcast (part of the RotoUnderworld Radio Program) toward the conclusion of this internship. Applicants should expect to dedicate roughly 10-20 hours per week to research and weekly check-ins. Intern(s) will report to, and work alongside, the Director of Analytics for the duration of the internship.
