James McCool

James McCool has been active in the fantasy industry for nearly half a decade, working with multiple content providers as a sort of jack-of-all trades. He started out writing 10,000 word blogs for free on Rotogrinders before getting recruited into a position with other major companies and providing content on a weekly basis for all major sports.

Known for his logical and analytical approach to all things DFS, McCool takes a calculated approach to fantasy sports that not only allows for a rigidly repeatable process, but a process that can be taught and replicated. His sheets and research sources are a fantastic example of the type of content he provides and the success that users have had with them speaks volumes to his understanding of the game.

James is deeply invested in DFS in terms of game theory and provides a contrarian look at the way players find success, and the majority of his writing and research is in finding ways to leverage the field based on biases and assumptions. He accepts and embraces the uncertainty in the games we play while actively looking to take advantage of those that just follow the beaten path.

McCool also provides a depth of knowledge in technology and spreadsheet manipulation and is one of the best in the industry and understanding the essentials in developing projections and daily fantasy spreadsheets for every day use. His skills in this area are invaluable for those looking to take the next step in their game and develop the spreadsheets and macros for use outside of the ones available on the web.

Overall, he has received multiple awards for his writing and content across multiple sites and his understanding of the game has helped him climb the ranks within the DFS industry. If you want to elevate your game and be in a better position for success, McCool is your guy.
