Introduction

Derek Farnsworth (Notorious)

Derek Farnsworth, aka Notorious, is one of the most recognizable names and faces in all of DFS, thanks in large part to the great advice he gives on a daily basis in RotoGrinders.com’s Grind Down for NBA and MLB as well as the First Look column that gives a preview of the day’s games from a DFS perspective. Before joining the RotoGrinders team, Derek received a Masters Degree from the University of Utah. When he’s not busy providing content, he’s dominating the industry as evidenced by his consistent top rankings in multiple sports. Farnsworth provides expert analysis for RotoGrinders Premium members on a daily basis during the NBA season and has also been nominated for five different Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association (FSWA) awards.

For as long I can remember, fantasy football has been a big part of my life. I’ve been addicted to the game for as long as I can remember. In fact, the only reason I became a die-hard Jaguars fan was because I had Mark Brunell, Fred Taylor, Jimmy Smith, and Keenan McCardell on my fantasy team as a kid. Before you start judging my loyalties: I’m from Utah and the only professional sports team that we have is the Jazz. When it comes to the NFL, you basically pick a team and stick with it. Despite some ugly years of football, I have remained a loyal Jaguars’ fan and to my knowledge I may be the only one in existence outside of Florida.

Anyway, let’s get back to fantasy football and why it is the best fantasy sport around. It brings people together through weekly and season-long drafts, it gives us a source of adrenaline and competition, it involves a unique combination of both skill and luck, and it is only once a week, so even the most casual of fans can make time for it. Honestly, is there anything better than sitting on your couch for ten straight hours watching football? Well, I suppose I can think of one thing, but we won’t get into that.

One of the biggest struggles that people have is turning their wealth of NFL and season-long knowledge into success in weekly fantasy football. You can know everything about every team and player in the NFL and still be a bad DFS player. You can also be the king of season-long leagues and have nothing to show for it when it comes to DFS. There are so many concepts in DFS that you don’t have to worry about in season-long leagues: Salary cap, player ownership, roster construction, and different league types are a few off the top of my head.
