Two years, trentsteele qualified for the 2012 DFBC Finals in Las Vegas… and came in last place. With a lot more experience under his belt and the first-time jitters socked away, he’s looking for one million reasons to forget that 2012 performance.

How long have you been playing fantasy sports/baseball?

I’ve been playing as long as I can remember. I played in home leagues and such around 2010. I joined FanDuel in 2012.


In your opinion, how does daily fantasy compare to season-long?

I would describe them as complementary. There’s a lot of prep work that gets done for season-long leagues, which give you a strong understanding of the player pool. This can be critical for finding value in daily leagues.


How would you describe your overall approach to drafting?

I think it depends on the day. I am not someone who likes to spend a lot of money on pitchers if I can avoid it, but there will be some days where you have a low number of good pitchers going and it will be very difficult to win unless you have one of those elite pitchers.


Describe the night of your DFBC Qualifier win.

It was an interesting night because I didn’t do any kind of stacking that night. I had a pretty good start. It was less stressful in terms of winning than two years ago, when I won a Qualifier and it was a real nail-biter. Hopefully, I’ll do better this time than I did in 2012.

What are you looking forward to the most about Vegas?

The massive increase in the prize pool and having a shot at what is really a significant amount of money. The rush you get from watching the games when you have that much cash on the line is pretty exciting. My goal is to do a lot better than last time.


What would you do with the $1,000,000 if you did win?

I’d put it away for a rainy day.
