Book Summary A cognitive bias is a mental process that leads us to make illogical and sometimes irrational decisions. Most of us are unaware of these mental processes, although they are operating constantly. Most of the time, believe it or not, ita€™s no big deal. In fact, there is no doubt that cognitive biases still exist because they help us succeed as a species! In this work, you will learn why and how cognitive biases come about as well as why they might just be beneficial from an evolutionary perspective. More importantly, youa€™ll also find out how they play into your management of your fantasy sports teams. Spoiler alert: ita€™s not all good! From Confirmation Bias to Omission Bias and the Pseudocertainty Effect, plus many more, youa€™ll learn how the biases affect your decision-making and what to do to overcome the subtle sabotage your brain may be exerting on your fantasy season.Indisputable evidence supporting a clear conclusion is what I strive for. At first glance, it would seem that fantasy football, with all its associated stats, numbers, and player rankings should be as clear cut and unambiguous as it gets. But ita#39;s not.
