It only took about 200 days, but this “100 in 100” series is finally over. I’m ending it with a bang, as I just published my latest fantasy football book; this one is an in-season guide meant for both season-long and DFS players.
The book is called Fantasy Football for Smart People: The Ultimate In-Season Weekly Guide. You can purchase it for Kindle, as a paperback, or in PDF form.
Fantasy Football for Smart People: The Ultimate In-Season Weekly Guide is filled with data-driven fantasy football analysis designed to improve your in-season decision-making, from projecting players to trade strategies to daily-fantasy-specific advice. With The Ultimate In-Season Weekly Guide, you’ll learn:
