The NFL.com Fantasy Player of the Year presented by SAP will be announced the
night before Super Bowl XLVII at the "2nd Annual NFL Honors" - a two-hour
primetime awards special to air nationally on  Saturday, February 2,  9:00 -
11:00 p.m. EST  on CBS. Further details about the NFL.com Fantasy Player of the
Year presented by SAP , including information on the eight finalists, are
available at  NFL.com/Honors.

The user-friendly dashboard serves as a central hub for statistical comparison
of the eight finalists' performances over the 16-week fantasy season, including
overall season points, points per game and average player figures in comparison
to others who play the same position. The database also provides a week-by-week
point graph, a quick analysis of each player's performance and other engaging
football-related analytics to provide tremendous value to fans.  

"Fantasy football fans love stats almost as much as watching the action on the
field," said  Jonathan Becher, CMO.  "The SAP dashboard enhances the NFL.com
Fantasy experience by distilling millions of data points and allowing fans size
up their favorite players more easily. Soon fans will be able to use the
analytical power of SAP to predict the most valuable players for their fantasy
teams."

In  October 2012, the NFL and SAP announced a  multi-year marketing sponsorship 
that made SAP the Official Cloud Software Solutions, Business Software and
Business Analytics Software Sponsor of the league. The NFL will utilize cloud
solutions from SAP to support the continued innovation and enhancement of
NFL.com's fantasy football platform. Through the implementation of on-demand SAP
solutions, SAP and the NFL will deepen the NFL.com fantasy football experience,
providing fans with enhanced analytics and functionality within the game.
