Hi, Team Maveryx!

 

A solution to last week’s challenge can be found here. 

 

It is that time again—the Superbowl is just around the corner! To get ready, grab your favorite snacks, call over some friends, and dive into some football stats. A big shoutout to Kenda Sanderson (@kenda) for bringing us this fantastic challenge!

 

The Superbowl is about the best of the best! You will use the provided Fantasy Football dataset to determine which positions typically have the best rank and how that has changed over time. american-football-63109_1920.jpg

 

Complete the following tasks to solve this challenge:

 

  1. Determine the five positions (POS) with the lowest overall rank (RK) for all years.
  2. Create a line graph and a table that clearly show the fluctuation in rank over time, specifically for those five positions.

 

Let's discover what fascinating insights you can extract from this challenge!
