Fanshare Buzz Score - ADD to your DFS website for FREE!
What is it?
The best daily fantasy sports players recognize the importance of ownership in building a winning lineup. But how do you actually determine the likely ownership level for a particular player? Well, similar to the financial markets, industry sentiment is an effective indicator of player ownership. The challenge is that in today’s age of social media and information overload, it is increasingly difficult to stay on top of player trends in fantasy sports. Using the FanShare “Buzz Score”, you can easily measure a player’s “buzz” level with our open API and proprietary data. In other words, we tell you who’s actually flying under the radar, and who’s not. The Buzz Score is an algorithm driven by a player’s proportion of total “tags” (i.e. mentions) for that particular week AND we track every player on the slate.
How Does It Work?
Tracking industry sentiment is what we do best at FanShareSports.com. Each week we break down huge volumes of data into bite-sized trends which are easy to digest. The FanShare Buzz Score condenses these trends into a user-friendly “score” from 1-10, relative to the other players on the slate. A score of 10 represents the highest level of relative buzz, and 1 the lowest. While not all buzz is positive, a higher buzz score typically means that player is trending for higher ownership. You can combine the Buzz Score with our Sentiment ratings to provide additional context and allow for a more refined approach to evaluating potential ownership.
How do I integrate Buzz Score on my website?

We do the rest by returning data to the Buzz Score in real-time.
