We believe Fantasy Football success comes down to understanding two things — opportunity and talent. You will have Fantasy Football mastered once you understand how good a player is and how good of an opportunity he has to gain yards and score touchdowns. The thing is, you'll never COMPLETELY master Fantasy Football unless you account for every possible variable which is an amount of data that doesn't exist — yet. But you can get pretty darn good at it when you have even a slightly better understanding of opportunity and talent than the average Joe. That small difference is all you need to consistently make money in daily fantasy or if you just want to win a redraft league with your friends for $20. That's what Fantasy Football Helpers is dedicated to doing.

Born in Michigan, he's still a die hard Detroit Lions fan (stop laughing) and usually dies even harder around Week 5 or 6 as the Lions begin their early hibernation from the playoffs.
He resigned as President of the Atlanta Chapter of the Detroit Lions Fan Club the day Wayne Fontes was hired, and got drunk and ran around his neighborhood naked in celebration the day Matt Millen got canned. These days, his wife has to remind him that Fantasy Football is just a game, that is, until the playoffs roll around and she gets a chance to look at the payouts. Then she magically turns into the second coming of Buddy Ryan, and begins throwing punches when he does not pick the correct starters and she sees her potential windfall fly out the window.
