Working in the Fantasy Sports industry since 2012, Jeff has witnessed Daily Fantasy Sports from every angle: business, content, and as a player. He’s been featured in the New York Times, the L.A. Times, numerous books including Dan Barbarisi’s “Dueling with Kings”, and some documentary films including Jason Baumgardner’s “Perfect Lineup”.
On the business side he worked with several startup operators in direct competition with FanDuel and DraftKings. Jeff brought a player’s perspective to the product side of things and was innovative with new features that you see the bigger sites now implementing today.
Content has always been a passion for him, so the opportunity to write for RotoGrinders early in his career was something to jump at. Jeff hosted popular shows for MLB, NBA, and NFL content and often focused on teaching a contrarian approach long before it was cool to do so.
Jeff’s run as a player has been highlighted by what many refer to as the best year in DFS tournament history. It started by beating a 135 entry field to win $500k in the 2018 DraftKings Fantasy Baseball World Championship. Then he upped the ante by beating over 17,000 entries to win a million dollars in the FanDuel Fan Championship *on the same day* that he finished 2nd in their World Fantasy Football Championship (for another $200k). Wanting to keep the ball rolling during basketball season, he again finished 2nd (and 9th), this time in the FanDuel World Fantasy Basketball Championship ($200k+).
