User bio: Since 1997 I've been doing a fantasy football radio show called "The Red Zone" in Phoenix, AZ. I've also had short stints on radio in Pittsburgh, PA and also on Sirius Satellite Radio. I despise the term "Fantasy Football Expert" as it implies rarely getting something wrong, along with some sort of superiority and I never allow myself to get that wrapped up in my own ego. I much prefer the term "Fantasy Football Analyst" as that is what I am and what I do. Somehow I grew up cheering for the (then) Los Angeles Rams with the old white horn helmets despite the fact both of my parents were Dallas Cowboys fans. Don't ask me how; I don't know. My favorite place to watch a game is at Santisi Brothers Pizzeria and Sports Grill in Phoenix. After years of playing the APBA Football games (anyone remember those?) I got into Fantasy Football in the early 1990's and one of my favorite personal championship teams was from 1995 when I had Scott Mitchell and Erik Kramer as my starting QB's in a 2 QB league.

Tonight, we launch our all new forums here at Fantasy Football Starters! I would first like to say thank you to the many forum users we have had here over the years and a big hearty THANK YOU from all of us here at FFS! As I look at my own stats and see I've logged close to 19,900 posts, I, like many of you, will be sad to see the count reset to zero. But endings are nothing more than chances for new beginnings and we promised to make FFS the best site for all of your fantasy football needs and the forums we integrate with Smitty and our new DraftCalc friends will quickly make us forget our loss as we launch into a new, and vastly superior, foums experience. LIke many, I will miss the way things were, but I also remember when we made the enhancements to the original lnieup analyzer I was sad to see the old look go. BUt it was clearly a better customer experience and a better tool overall. Some with the Draft Analyzer, and the Trade Analyzer. They have gone through their changes and with each passing one, I have fondly recalled what they used to look like and how to navigate them. This will be no different. Our forums enhancements are going to help propel our community to better interact and get timely, knoweldged, and varied opinions from those who are obviously fanatical about fantasy football. Goodbye 19,878! Hello 1; and a whole new experience! 07/22/14 19:30
This great for us as we look to take the next step in becoming the ultimate 1 stop shop for al your fantasy football needs! I've known Smitty a long time and have always enjoyed his passion and insight. That's why he's been a regular guest on the radio show the last several seasons. 2014 is going to be our best season yet! 05/10/14 05:13
Jackson and Thomas (ppr favors Thomas to me over Ivory or the great unknown of Grimes) at RB. Edelman, Amendola, and Floyd at WR. Douglas appears to have fallen behind Roddy White recently and Jernigan is hard to trust with Randle playing this week. Usually don't go two WR's from same team, but at least you have the two ppr WR's to have from the Pats and this ensures you get the right one whichever blows up. 12/29/13 10:58
I hope it's the right cal! Eli is so hard to trust with how he's performed this season but of these options, he's the guy I'd go with. Good luck! 12/29/13 10:32

“I have been playing fantasy football for 4 years and before I never made the playoffs with other service I had, but with you guys I was high point total last year and won it all and this year high point again. I owe it all too you guys” Kevin first year member

“I have been a member for the past 2 years. Last year I placed 3rd and this year...well I am the 2009 League Champ! I do have to say though, the best thing I got out of FFS was the weekly Fantasy Alerts sent directly to my email. I had a few guys compliment me on my waiver wire pickups. Another said, "You only won because of FFS."” Josh second year member

“Thank You you were awesome I was high point total 2 years in a row and won it all I cant thank you enough see you next year” Rick 2 year member
