When I was in high school, I was the subject of torment for what I’d just call having an interesting childhood and an imagination, all things considered. I’ve decided since this summer was my 20th year high school reunion and I didn’t attend, and as a nod to that rebelliousness, I’m taking back the title of an English project done about me in high school and using it to talk about fantasy football, daily fantasy football, sports betting along with me! I have absolutely no problem talking about myself. You should enjoy it.
Apparently my childhood was so entertaining that my classmates used me as the subject of an English project dissecting actual events in my life and purporting whether or not each of the 50 or so different things were true or not in paper. Interestingly, the project was so popular that my classmate sold copies of it to other people and eventually sourced me for more material, cut me in on the profit and it died, thankfully, because most of the things being said about me were harmless if not just true. Again, I had an interesting childhood.
The project was simply a list of statements about either things I’d said or things I’d done.
Here’s a list of things. I’ve been here at Stampede Blue, part of SBNation and under contract with Vox Media going on five years now. In that time, I’ve contributed hundreds of hours of video content covering the Colts post game, prognosticating on the future and have even got scouting hours under my belt as part of the staff. I’ve even got into coaching football, am now part of Soldiers to Sidelines, a 501c3 aimed at putting people like me on an NFL staff. I’ve written about gambling before, been commissioner of our staff and community fantasy football leagues (that no one signed up for this year, no biggie).
This year, I want to produce any content I can when it comes to fantasy football, DFS and sports betting.
First, let’s talk fantasy football. I want to make sure I always remind you to match the cheat sheet you’re using with the format you’re drafting. Also, make sure you know the date and time of your draft so …….
