Welcoming the two new guys

I wanted to take a minute today to formerly welcome our two new full-time employees, Joseph Dolan and Matthew Camp, who’ve been officially on board for a week and a half.

This is a bad economy, so as you can imagine we got flooded with resumes. That worked out for us well in this search for two new full-timers, however. I whittled down 250+ resumes to 30, then to about six and ultimately made the decision to hire Joe and Matt. So far, both decisions look like good ones.

Both are young guys, in their early-20s, which I think is a good thing. They’re eager, fresh, and ready to immerse themselves in covering the NFL and possibly MLB (in 2010) for a living, plus they bring with them a perspective and an understanding of their generation that no one else in our company can fully grasp.

If you’re loo […]

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
