As the founder and CEO of Dynasty Football Warehouse I eat, sleep and breathe fantasy football. I’ve been hooked on this silly hobby since 2004 when my brother-in-law got me to join his redraft league. The biggest thing for me is having a competitive outlet as I crave head-to-head action against others. This fun and silly passion helps to fill that void in my life after growing up playing basketball, football and baseball. Luckily my beautiful wife Katie is absolutely amazing and she is so supportive of DFW and this so-called “silly” passion of mine.

My wife and I have a 5-year-old daughter, Addison, and a 2-year-old son, Tyler, who fuel my motivation in life. On another note I honestly can’t imagine DFW’s existence without my DFW brethren Dan (aka Burgandy) and Jeff (aka Shamrock) who are my managing partners. We make it a point to have a lot of fun and I truly believe this is portrayed through our articles and forums, making it a great experience for our members and readers who are the life-blood of our site. I also want to take a moment to thank all of our contributors, members and readers. Without your continued support of DFW we wouldn’t be where we are today and I am truly excited for what lies ahead. Our future is bright and the vision we have for the site will make for such a fun ride!

Born and bred in Minnesota I now live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my wife. It’s a struggle everyday living among Packer fans, but it makes the rivalry that much more fun. I’m currently a software developer for a large banking corporation.

I started with fantasy football as commissioner of my then 8-team redraft league back in 1996. Since then I’ve tried almost every format of fantasy football, but developed a love for dynasty above all. I still run my initial redraft league with close friends from 1996 along with two other dynasties. I also participate in six other dynos. Other hobbies I have include video games, basketball, and brewing beer (though I’ll admit I’m much better at drinking the beer than making it).

I was born in Rochester, MN and raised in a small town near there. After spending a few years in Colorado I moved back to the Twin Cities to start a family. I am a die-hard Vikings fan and love any sort of competitive sport. I currently own and operate multiple Subway Sandwich Restaurants, have two children under the age of four, and a wife of eight years. Needless to say, I keep extremely busy.

I started playing fantasy football in my good buddy Shamrock’s leagues. I was introduced to dynasty and have since dropped all my redraft leagues. For fun, I stay competitive in mud runs, 5ks, and 10ks. I play guitar and mainly jam to any blues backing track I can find on YouTube. While I am busy, my businesses allow me to do the thing that I love most, which is being an active and involved father to our two children. They are the loves of my life and nothing would be worth doing without them. And, oh yeah  the Packers suck!

I can remember playing fantasy football back in 1999-2000ish on Smallworld.com in their salary cap/stock market type leagues. After scouring the site on my dial up connection for the best deals, I would buy and sell players like some Wall Street Tycoon. I eventually became addicted to this virtual game. It wasn’t until college that I realized I could make a few bucks on the side, so it turned into my unofficial second job. My soon-to-be wife didn’t love the idea of me spending 10 hours on the couch each Sunday watching football, but once she realized the more I won the bigger her Christmas gifts… well, she learned to deal with it.

Residing in Southern New Hampshire, I am a die hard New England Patriots fan with a soft spot for the Cleveland Browns (since I went to school in Cleveland). As a Broadcasting and Mass Comm major, but not working in the Communications industry whatsoever, writing for FFW and DFW allows me to scratch that itch. It also helps that I thoroughly enjoy researching and writing about fantasy football as well

I was born and raised in Houston — which is now the most agonizing city for a sports fan by far since LeBron has returned to Cleveland. After moving all over the great state of Texas, I have now settled down in Amarillo.

I was told all my life to get paid doing what you love. So, I’m livin’ the dream as a beer salesman by day and moonlighting as a fantasy football writer. Football has been my passion ever since I put on pads in the 4th grade. I started my first fantasy league over a decade ago which has now evolved into a monster 30-man roster contract league. I’m always looking for a way to raise the difficulty level and challenge myself and the other owners.

When I am not working, I occupy my time with my wife and three kids. The oldest is a boy that is very much like me in every way. My other two are daughters that are already clearly working on solidifying their diva reputations even before they are out of diapers. When their pre-teen era begins, ya’ll will be hearing a lot from me as I escape into my sanctuary of fantasy football.

I was born in Nebraska, did 16 years in Buffalo before I finally escaped to Florida State University and I now reside in Orlando, Florida. I have been happily married for over 20 years to the greatest football wife a man can ask for. Thanks for tolerating my dysfunctional FF obsession all these years Audra!

I started playing FF in 1987 when I entered and won my first National competition, a MSNBC salary cap league. Like Alan I remember getting the USA Today on Monday mornings and manually scoring all the league’s teams while having a beer at my friend’s bar. Since then I have evolved into a full scale FF junky playing IDP, dynasty and high stakes redraft leagues like the WCOFF, FFPC, and FPC. I was introduced to Dynasty about 9 years ago and I started playing IDP leagues in 2007, when I joined Jim Day’s (Fantasy Taz) Badlands leagues.

I joined DFW as their IDP content director in June of 2014 and I look forward to spreading the word on all the great features and benefits of playing in IDP leagues!

Born and raised just outside of Minneapolis, I’ve grown up a passionate Minnesota sports fan. Unfortunately, some of my most memorable moments as a fan include feeling pain and agony of narrow losses (’98 and ’09 NFC Championships). In a weird way, I think this has always drawn me to the draft. It’s the one time of year where every team and every fanbase believes this is their year, and the draft marks a new beginning. My passion for the NFL draft ultimately led me to Dynasty. It is far and away my preference for fantasy sports, and I can only imagine it will grow in popularity as the years pass.

Aside from being an obsessive NFL fan, I also enjoy playing men’s slowpitch softball (still clinging on to my dream to make it to the show), delicious craft beer, and single track mountain biking. I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart, and we have a very active little two year old to keep us on our toes.

I’ve been playing fantasy football for the past 10 years but it really became an addiction when I started playing Dynasty Fantasy Football in 2010. Dynasty is a way to keep fantasy football going year round and that’s exactly what I do. I’m in way too many leagues, each year I give myself a cap of how many new leagues I will join and every year I exceed that number. I’ve been writing about fantasy football for a little over a year and contributing for DFW gives me an opportunity to talk fantasy with people that are just as hooked as I am.

I live in the Pittsburgh area, I’m a HUGE Steelers fan, and I have an amazing wife and three great kids! I’m willing to talk fantasy sports with anyone anytime, got a question or a comment about anything fantasy football related hit me up.

Growing up in Wisconsin means I’m quite the diehard Packers fan. However, this causes quite a few issues since I currently reside in Chicago and married into a family full of Bears fans. Thankfully it’s pretty easy to win all of the “Our Team is Better” arguments. My wife and I have been married since 2011 and we recently welcomed our first child into the family!

I’ve been in the fantasy football game for 12 years and am currently commissioner of a 12-team redraft league with a bunch of guys from church. My dynasty experience is a little on the green side, but I’ve already learned so much from the DFW family! I look forward to spending the 2015 season with everyone and beyond!

  I was born and raised in Suffern, New York to a family of die hard, fanatical, (some would say delusional) Jets fans- I’m talking about Jets fans who actually attended the only Superbowl in our sad franchise’s history. So you can imagine how I was bred from an early age to bleed green and white and kneel at the altar of our God, Joe Namath, on Sundays. Football has not merely been a hobby of mine, its been a brotherhood that has banded the Facelle men together for generations, starting with my grandfather and enduring through my nephew who received his first Jets apparel as an infant.  I left for Boston College as a freshman in 2008 and have lived in Boston ever since. It’s been interesting living in the valley of the shadow of the Patriots to say the least.

I’m a graduate from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with an affinity for all things fantasy football.  I was introduced to Dynasty Football in 2009, and after spending the last six years living, breathing and dreaming about the “sport”, I  figured it was high time I put my fancy college degree to good use and add “writing” to that list of verbs.

Some fantasy football writers will measure their success in terms of article views or twitter followers. My measure will be in terms of how many of my readers end their fantasy season with a trophy raised high above their head and a “League Champion” plaque posted at the top of their league’s home page.

Yea, I know you just rolled your eyes at that cheesy last statement.  I’m OK with it.

I actually started playing Fantasy Football in the mid-1980’s—back when we had to wait for the Monday morning newspaper to find out the exact statistics from the Sunday games. Fantasy has come a long way since then, and we are all very thankful for the Internet. I have a B.A. in sports journalism from the University of Nebraska (Go Big Red) and have experience as a sportscaster in Lincoln, NE and Denver, CO. I have, most recently, served as an Executive Casino Host in Las Vegas at the Stratosphere, Stardust and Harrah’s, and I currently work independently for Caesar’s Entertainment. I have kept my hands in the broadcasting business. I appeared weekly, during the 2014 NFL season, as the Las Vegas voice for DFW staffers Josh Johnson and Nick Wagner during their podcast in picking pro games against the spread. I also publish a “Best Bets” column during the season for my online newspaper TellusNewsDigest.com.

I was born and raised in the great state of Iowa, Living the quiet but very busy life with my wife and 3 daughters. Football and sports in general has always been a passion of mine. Living in Iowa there was/is little to do and zero professional teams to follow. When I found Fantasy Football it was a match made in heaven as I could now root for many teams with a purpose. I grew up rooting for many different teams and never had a favorite until a few years back committing to the Lions as “my team”. I started playing redraft fantasy leagues in 2003 and over time it grew into keeper leagues and finally jumped into the dynasty world in 2012.

I have been writing for DFW since the summer of 2013. It has been a great ride and I look forward to continuing to see this site continue to grow and prosper!

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, a lifelong suffering Cleveland sports fan has turned to fantasy sports to take his mind off of any disastrous “professional” Cleveland teams. A two sport fantasy “athlete”, Shawn has been playing fantasy football and baseball for well over a decade. You could call him the “Bo Jackson” or “Deion Sanders” of fantasy sports.

Because he isn’t able to turn his fantasy sports knowledge into a full time paying job (yet) Shawn teaches high school History and English as a way of communicating with everyone else outside of our crazy fantasy world. With a strong background in pop culture and music, Shawn also works occasionally as a DJ, where he tries to educate others on exactly what type of music to listen to as well. I guess it seems like he’s always trying to educate others at something.

I am a Slot Manager for a Casino in a town where Wild Bill Hickock took his last breath and have been working in the gaming industry since 1993. I am married to a wonderful Native American woman and  cherish her love for the outdoors.  I relish my time fishing, hunting, camping, gardening and anything outdoors when I am not participating in fantasy sports no matter if it is writing an article or participating in a fantasy league which can include anything from fantasy football to fantasy NASCAR to fantasy golf.  Although all are most definitely entertaining, fantasy football most definitely takes precedence…especially dynasty fantasy football!  I have been participating in fantasy football leagues since 1995 and have enjoyed decades of endless enjoyment at a minimal cost while getting an infinite amount of entertainment!

I was born in the mile high city of Denver, but grew up in a small town near Columbus, Ohio refusing to succumb to the Ohio State Buckeye fandom, I placed my love for the Broncos after they lost Elway, Terrell Davis, and my all-time favorite WR Ed McCaffery and became a fan (and hopeless playoff romantic) of the NHL’s Columbus Bluejackets when they formed in 2000. I enlisted into the U. S. Navy in 2005 bouncing all over the Western Hemisphere until I finally planted in New Orleans for 3 years where I met my beautiful wife Brittany and drug her along with the Navy’s constant moving until we spent 4 years in Terre Haute, IN welcoming our gorgeous daughter Gemma. We now reside in Indianapolis, where I still serve in the world’s greatest Navy and pester our neighbors as member’s of the Who Dat Nation! I started playing redraft fantasy leagues in 2008 and over time it grew into keeper leagues and finally jumped into the dynasty and IDP world in 2012, then Devy in 2013.

I started writing for DFW in 2015 when the flagship DFW 48 league welcomed in 12 new owners starting with the Inside the 48 and 36 and quickly transitioned into rookie impacts, trading spaces, rookie profiles, weekly IDP articles, and 2016 rookie profiles. It’s been great going from collecting advice from the experts to being in a position to give back to the whole Fantasy Football community and continue to look for more opportunities to give back!
