Senior Fantasy Analyst / Writer/ Editor-in-chief

Hi, welcome to my website!  It's not as glitzy as others out there.  Hey, I'm a writer not a web designer so cut me some slack.  My motto with my fantasy football advice here is this, "Try Not to Suck" and if you’re not first you’re last haha!!! That said,  I'm what you call a veteran fantasy football player.  I've been playing for over 27 years.  I'd like to say that I've won titles every year and never lost- but that's tough to do, at least with a straight face.  What I have done is consistently made the playoffs and won several titles during that span. I started playing back in 1991 with my friends at college and was hooked ever since.  I've played exclusively in redraft leagues in a variety of scoring formats including:  standard, ppr, and 1/2 point ppr leagues.  Most of those have been snake drafts.  I'm currently in my 3rd year playing in an auction league.  So I'm gaining experience in auctions now too. I don't consider myself, or anyone, for that matter,  a fantasy football expert.  I'm just a guy who has played it for a long time who likes writing about fantasy football.  Anyway, I thought I'd share some of things I've learned over the years, disclose my sleepers and busts, and give some advice. 

In addition to fantasy football, I've played in NFL confidence pools, both with and without the spread, fantasy golf pools, NCAA March Madness pools, and even a few years in fantasy baseball leagues.  While they're all fun, at the end of the day fantasy football is without a doubt my favorite.  Whether you're an experienced fantasy football player like myself or a rookie trying to learn the ropes, thanks for stopping by.  I'll try to write articles that cater to each of you, except for my no good friends Chad and Kelly whose teams have crushed many of my title dreams throughout the years. Curse your miserable hides you slugs!  Find another fantasy football website to conduct your no good research!  No fantasy football advice for you- NEXT!  Anyway, I digress, where was I?  Oh yeah, fantasy football- it's the greatest game out there- even with those two.  I hope you folks love it as much as I do. 

PS- I almost forgot, and this is important, to all of my future fantasy football opponents out there, if you smell a delicious, crispy chicken aroma the week during the draft or before our matchup, well…that’s not your nose playing tricks on you. It’s time to Shake and Bake! And one last thing, I'm going to beat your team the old fashioned Ringo way…. like a drum haha!!!

*** Sept 2019 Update- I’m competing in my first industry/ analyst draft- The 2019 Scott Fish Bowl aka #SFB9. Special thanks to Scott Fish for the invite! It’s an honor and privilege to be a part of such a great cause- donating to kids who are less fortunate so they can have a toy for Christmas. I’ll be competing in the largest analyst draft in history 1,200 people total.

I’m also in my first ranking contest competing against some of those same analysts at
