FloFantasy By The Numbers
We're in the final days before athletes take the floor in Carson for the big show. Which means, if you haven't created your FloFantasy team...you should. We took a look at the data thus far- which may or may not help with strategy for your picks.

1st & 2nd Round Draft Picks


Both the first and second round draft picks tend to be primarily made up of men. 75% of the first round draft picks and 67% of the second round draft picks were men. 20% of first round draft picks and 28% of the second round draft picks were women. 5% of both first and second round draft picks were teams.

Top 5 First Round Draft Picks:
  1. Mathew Fraser (20%)
  2. Ben Smith (16%)
  3. Josh Bridges (13%)
  4. Noah Ohlsen (8%)
  5. Sara Sigmundsdottir (6%)
Top 5 Second Round Draft Picks:
  1. Jacob Heppner (9%)
  2. Scott Panchik (8%)
  3. Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson (5%)
  4. Ben Smith (5%)
  5. Christian Lucero, Katrin Davidsdottir, Josh Bridges, Brent Fikowski, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (4%)

Of the men...

First Round
  1. Mathew Fraser (27%)
  2. Ben Smith (21%)
  3. Josh Bridges (18%)
  4. Noah Ohlsen (11%)
Mathew Fraser made up most of the men picks in the first round with 27%. Ben Smith, Josh Bridges, and Noah Ohlsen followed consecutively. 

Second Round
  1. Jacob Heppner (13%)
  2. Scott Panchik (12%)
  3. Bjorgvin Karl Gudmundsson (8%)
  4. Ben Smith (8%)
Top picks for athletes in the second round could imply a majority of people don't think these athletes will stand on top of the podium, but will at least finish in the top ten or so.

Of the women...

First Round
  1. Sara Sigmundsdottir (29%)
  2. Kara Webb (24%)
  3. Katrin Davidsdottir (12%)
  4. Lauren Fisher (12%)
Sara Sigmundsdottir and Kara Webb have been the top picks for women in the first round of draft picks. Unlike reigning champion Ben Smith sitting on top of the draft picks in the first round for the men, the women's reigning champion, Katrin Davidsdottir, did not sit as one of the top two draft picks. About the same number of people who are hoping Katrin defends her title are hoping Lil Fish makes her way to the top of the leaderboard next week.

Second Round
  1. Katrin Davidsdottir (14%)
  2. Camille Leblanc-Bazinet (14%)
  3. Samantha Briggs (9%)
  4. Brooke Wells (8%)
Reigning champion Katrin Davidsdottir is tied for the top second round draft pick with 2014 champion, Camille Leblanc-Bazinet. Sam Briggs and Brooke Wells also make the top list of second round draft picks.

Of the teams...

First Round
  1. CrossFit Mayhem (75%)
  2. CrossFit Dynamix (25%)
CrossFit Mayhem overwhelmingly took the highest number of picks, out of the people who selected a team in the first round. This could be most likely due to people being more unfamiliar with the team division than individuals. Possibly resulting in people being sure to select them early.

Second Round
  1. CrossFit Invictus (50%)
  2. CrossFit Dynamix (25%)
  3. Diablo CrossFit (25%)
Another familiar name, CrossFit Invictus, made up half of the team picks in the second round. They were followed by Andrea Ager and CrossFit Dynamix out of New York, and Diablo CrossFit out of California.
