Fantasy veteran tsmith didn’t know what to expect when he entered FanDuel’s $109 FFFC Qualifier for Week 1 of the 2013 NFL Season. And then it happened…
Anquan Boldin hauled in 208 receiving yards for 33.3 fantasy points, A.J. Green took 162 of his own for 32.7, and 49ers wunderkind Colin Kaepernick tossed for 412 yards and a 30.68 FanDuel total. A score of 194.18 to be exact!
“I was walking around the house screaming… my wife thought I was nuts,” says tsmith.
So nuts that tsmith is now headed to Vegas on December 7th for a shot at $1 million and a private jet home. “It all worked out,” said Todd.
Yes it did.
What is your favorite game time snack and your general routine?
Wings and cheesesteak sliders! And gatorade, I drink a lot of gatorade. I’m usually driving my son around to soccer to take my mind off my contests, as I try to keep my mind on other things.
Who was your greatest fantasy performer ever?
I would say, maybe 5 years ago, Marques Colston had a ridiculous year. His rookie year, we picked him up as a free agent and he killed it*.
*(referring to Colston’s 10 receptions for 169 yards in Week 4 against Pittsburgh and his six receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against Baltimore)
If you could change one rule regarding fantasy football, what would it be?
A bigger emphasis on overall points, rather than head to head.
What song best defines your style of play?
“Eye of the Tiger” – Survivor
Do you have a sports hero and if so, who?
I would say probably Charles Barkley was my favorite player growing up, the round mound of rebound.
If you could describe daily fantasy sports in one word, what would it be?
What do you love about FanDuel?
In 16-week leagues, you aren’t rewarded for one good week. On FanDuel, you’re instantly rewarded.
If you had to compare yourself as a fantasy player to one fictional character, who would it be and why?
Spiderman, because I play by my own strategy and don’t do things by the book.
What will you do with the $1 million if you win?
My wife and I would buy a bigger house, pay off some bills, and put money in savings for the kids’ college funds.
