FTN Network Releases 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide Following 2024 NFL Draft

FTN Network

FTN Network, a company built for delivering affordable, customizable, and highly detailed NFL advanced charted data for betting, season-long fantasy, and daily fantasy, ushered the 2024 football season today with the release of its 2024 NFL Draft Team Grades and 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide 2.0. The guide, which is authored by FTN President and Sirius XM Radio Host Jeff Ratcliffe, features rookie rankings, projections, veteran comps, dynasty value, trade value charts, draft boards, and more. FTN’s 2024 football season started on a high note with a successful weekend of NFL Draft coverage after providing NFL fans with some the most accurate set of mock drafts in the industry. In a field of 137 contestants, three FTN analysts finished in the top 15 of the FantasyPros mock draft accuracy contest: Tyler Loechner (4th place), Ratcliffe (13th), and Chris Meaney (14th). No other media company had two or more analysts finish inside the top 20 and Ratcliffe has now finished 13th or better in back-to-back years. FTN’s coverage included a live blog with instant reactions and fantasy projections from Ratcliffe for every fantasy-relevant rookie selected during the first three rounds of the draft. In addition to Ratcliffe’s projections and analysis, the coverage included insight from FTN’s Chief Analytics Officer and DVOA inventor Aaron Schatz, Mike Randle, Meaney, fantasy analyst Adam Pfeifer, and rookie expert Jeremy Popielarz. FTN also produced immediate, instant-reaction video breakdowns during the first night of the draft. “We provided fans with the most accurate information before the draft, live fantasy analysis during the draft across multiple mediums and the most comprehensive rookie fantasy scouting guide in the market,” said FTN Network CEO Perry Gershon. “Our extensive coverage of the NFL draft and our ongoing analysis of the incoming rookie class continues to prove that FTN is the one-stop-shop for NFL fans, fantasy players and bettors.” Along with pre, post and in-draft content, Randle gave all 32 NFL teams a 2024 Draft grade on the A-F scale. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Chargers topped Randle’s charts with A+, A and A grades, respectively. The Carolina Panthers, Las Vegas Raiders and Dallas Cowboys rounded out the bottom of the 32 teams, receiving C grades. Additionally, Randle provided fantasy grades for every team that saw the Chargers score the highest (A+) and the Atlanta Falcons and Cowboys score the lowest (F). While Ratcliffe’s 2024 Rookie Fantasy Scouting Guide had been released prior to the draft, version 2.0 is now live and includes post-draft information. It can be found here. The guide includes 150 player-by-player breakdowns, draft boards, player comps, rankings for regular and superflex leagues, a dynasty rookie pick trade value chart and more and will be continuously updated before the start of the 2024 NFL season.

Made in the USA: Ultrahuman plants flag in US with manufacturing facility UltraFactory to make first wearable rings in the country

Ultrahuman

With smart ring market leadership within its sights, Ultrahuman has today announced plans to open a manufacturing facility poised to accelerate its production capacity. The UltraFactory will be located in Indiana. It opens within the next six months and will be the launchpad for Ultrahuman’s next phase of growth. The UltraFactory will offer an end-to-end production capability and is based on the company’s first operational model of such a facility in India. This development comes hot on the heels of a $35 million fresh investment in the company (series B funding round) and reaffirms Ultrahuman’s ambition to become the market leader in the smart ring space in the next 12 to 15 months. The company has already seen phenomenal growth over the past year, becoming the second-largest player in the smart ring market while maintaining profitability. The opening of the new UltraFactory, will add a production capacity of 200,000 smart rings and present an additional $100m revenue opportunity annually. This is a push towards establishing smart ring market leadership in the US. Ultrahuman’s ability to make significant long-term manufacturing investments, supported by its profitability, is unique in the smart rings market. As a result, UltraFactory’s cutting-edge end-to-end production capabilities will enable the company to fully capitalize on what the company sees as its biggest competitive advantage: fast product development and iteration, and speed of execution in rolling out to global markets. With the US market growing in importance for Ultrahuman in recent months, the move will help the company lower costs in shipping and logistics, while aiding the US government in its push to strengthen domestic manufacturing rather than manufacturing in offshore locations, like China. This brings an expected hiring boom of 150 new Ultrahuman employees in the US over the next 12 months split between engineering and research (30%) and commercial operations (70%). Mohit Kumar, Founder and CEO of Ultrahuman commented: “US is an interesting market for us given it has always been huge in terms of demand for the product but we’re also seeing tremendous value from a manufacturing and research perspective. UltraFactory US would enable manufacturing for health tracking smart ring devices and give us the ability to do necessary research to evolve the form factor further.” Ultrahuman has seen phenomenal growth over the past 12 months, becoming the second-largest player in the smart ring market while maintaining profitability. "Our vision of being the top player in terms of both active devices and geographic presence is within reach, thanks to our rapid expansion and the love we've received from our users," added Mohit Kumar. UltraFactory will help Ultrahuman support its recent retail expansion into over 150 outlets worldwide, spanning iconic locations like London’s Selfridges on Oxford Street, Changi Airport in Singapore, and the Virgin megastore in Dubai. In addition to their smart ring called Ring AIR, the Ultrahuman product suite includes a continuous glucose monitoring wearable called M1 Live, a home health device called Ultrahuman Home and a preventive blood testing product called Blood Vision. Their platform integrates glucose, sleep, movement, blood markers, and HRV, offering a comprehensive approach to health monitoring. "Our growth is a testament to the user love for our products, highlighted by industry-leading NPS and engagement metrics since the launch of our latest model, the Ring AIR. Our relentless focus on improving user experience through continuous firmware and software updates is what sets us apart," Mohit Kumar emphasized. "Shipping a new firmware version every 2 weeks and weekly app improvements reflect our commitment to excellence and our speed of execution, our biggest competitive advantage. We’ve also iterated on hardware at the speed of software by designing novel devices like Ultrahuman Home, a home health monitor.” Looking ahead, Ultrahuman is on track to surpass $100 million in annualized revenue run rate (ARR) by the end of 2024, a milestone that will be achieved profitably. "Our ability to make long-term manufacturing investments, supported by our profitability, is unique in the smart ring market," Mohit Kumar noted. Ultrahuman's dedication to scientific validation and innovation is further evidenced by the completion of a clinical trial involving 105 participants, aimed at validating the ‘Metabolic Score’ generated on the Ultrahuman platform. "Our long-term investment in R&D and intellectual property is a cornerstone of our strategy, ensuring that our products not only meet but exceed the highest standards of efficacy and reliability," Mohit Kumar concluded. About Ultrahuman Ultrahuman is the world's most advanced metabolic fitness platform. Ultrahuman’s products include the Ultrahuman M1(continuous glucose monitoring sensor), the Ultrahuman Ring and Blood Vision, a preventive blood testing platform with the pioneering UltraTrace™ technology. By collating different biomarkers, Ultrahuman is helping people improve their energy levels and lifestyle, track their workout, sleep and recovery, and avoid metabolic disorders.

Spring Trail Adventures Await: Five Reasons to Get Outside on Trails

YourUpdateTV

Spring is finally here and the outdoors are calling on us to step outside and explore. Rails to Trails Conservancy, the nation’s largest trail, walking and biking advocacy organization, is calling on people across the country to get outside on trails this spring to celebrate the many ways that trails and connected trail networks bring joy and impact to people’s lives. Central to the organization’s call to action is Celebrate Trails Day, hosted on April 27, 2024, with hundreds of events nationwide that serve to inspire more people to make trails, walking and biking part of their everyday lives. Recently, RTC’s vice president of communications, Brandi Horton, participated in a satellite media tour campaign to talk about how to make the most out of America’s trails. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/878-0TEpKP8 Celebrate Trails Day is the annual celebration of the spring trail season, recognized on the fourth Saturday in April. The national day of celebration is organized by Rails to Trails Conservancy. RTC is dedicated to building a nation connected by trails, reimagining public spaces to create safe ways for everyone to walk, bike and be active outdoors. Here are five reasons to get outside on trails this spring, and on Celebrate Trails Day, says RTC: 1. It’s one of the best seasons for outside adventures with milder weather across the country—perfect for time on the trail. People can find their perfect trail using RTC’s free trail-finder app, TrailLink. 2. It's good for our bodies and the planet. Having spaces to walk and bike near where you live makes it more likely that you will be physically active, which is important for our bodies and our minds. And, when we swap out short car trips for walking and biking trips, we burn calories instead of carbon! 3. It can be a safe way to get around without a car. Currently, people who walk and bike are increasingly likely to be seriously injured or killed in crashes with cars and trucks. Connected trail networks separate people from vehicles, making it a safer transportation option for more people. 4. It's the right time to let elected officials know that trails matter to you. On Celebrate Trails Day and every day, our time on the trail is an act of advocacy sending a message that trails are important to people across the country. As Congress and local officials make decisions about ways to invest infrastructure resources, getting outside on the trail is an important way to build support. 5. There are more places to walk, bike and be active outside than ever! With more than 41,000 miles of multiuse trails—where you can walk, run, ride, skate and more—and over 150 trail networks emerging, there are safe places to walk, bike and be active outside in every single state and hundreds of communities across the country. To find creative ideas for getting outside, photo and video content for use with credit to RTC, reporters are encouraged to visit RTC’s Celebrate Trails Day website and follow #CelebrateTrails on social media. For more information about Celebrate Trails Day, to find events, and to enter to win prizes, visit railstotrails.org and follow #CelebrateTrails on social media.
