About Me

al smizzle

Fantasy Sports has always been a passion of mine since I was thirteen years old and in 2012 I start playing Daily Fantasy Sports. Success came quickly qualifying for my first live final in NFL that December, and winning my first major championship in February of 2013, the DraftStreet Basketball Championship. A few of the accomplishments I’m most proud in my short fantasy sports career are being one of the original hosts of Grinders Live, a daily video show devoted to informing viewers of the most actionable DFS information for that night’s slate of games, winning the RotoGrinders Tournament Player of the Year award in 2013, making the transition from an unknown to providing content at ESPN and winning the Millionaire Maker in week 2 of the 2016 NFL season. I have always considered myself a well rounded Daily Fantasy competitor and that is evidenced by my successes in multiple sports, being one of the only players in the world to have scored a six figure tournament win in four different sports (Baseball, Basketball, Football and Golf).

You can listen to me on the Daily Fantasy Edge, On the Ball, and Fantasy Football Focus podcasts, read my Best Buys article during the NFL season on ESPN Insider, as well as watch tons of digital video on DraftKings Playbook and ESPN. Keep your eyes open, every once in a while I make a television appearance too.
