How long have you been playing fantasy sports/baseball?

I used to play fantasy football about ten years ago with my brother and some of his friends. I stopped because I got frustrated with my players getting hurt. That all changed when I started playing fantasy baseball on FanDuel a little over a year ago.


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

I don’t play season-long anymore because it’s just too slow for me. I definitely prefer daily because it’s faster and has more of an upside.


How would you describe your overall approach to drafting?

My brother is my partner because he’s very good at numbers. He gives me a lot of advice. Once in a while, I have a strong opinion and he’ll take that into account. I’m the one who handles the money and enters the contests.


Describe the night of your DFBC Qualifier win.

Oh, my god. I was home making dinner – it started off as a normal night. Then I noticed we had a great start with a couple of home runs from our under-owned players. I started getting so nervous that I couldn’t even eat my dinner that night. Even though we were holding strong, I was a total wreck because something always goes wrong. In the end, nothing went wrong and we won. I couldn’t believe it.

What are you looking forward to the most about Vegas?

Winning the million dollars and spending some time with my family since I’m taking them on a mini-vacation.


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

Definitely buy myself a new car and invest in an income property. That’s all I’ve thought about so far.
