Joe Dolan joined FantasyGuru.com as a Senior Writer in March of 2009, and ascended to managing editor in 2014.
Joe is a son of the video-game age - his extensive knowledge of NFL rosters dates back to the early 1990s, when he could tell you that Bo Jackson was the greatest athlete of all time, Christian Okoye could launch a linebacker 35 yards through the air, and Jim McMahon was the backup to the legendary "QB Eagles" in Tecmo Super Bowl. As soon as he could use a computer, he transferred this knowledge to fantasy football before he entered high school.
As with most sports writers, Dolan opted for the pen over the pads when he realized he had zero outstanding athletic ability. He attended Penn State University, where he ascended to sports editor of The Daily Collegian, PSU's student-run independent publication. After graduating from Penn State in May 2008, Dolan took a job producing content for PhiladelphiaEagles.com, where he covered the team extensively and served as an on-camera personality on The Writers' Roundtable.
Starting in 2010, Dolan has been the co-host of the weekend edition of "SiriusXM Fantasy Football" and "SiriusXM Fantasy Football Game Day" on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio. In 2011, he rejoined the Philadelphia Eagles as a weekly on-camera contributor and analyst on “Eagles Nightly.” He’s also been heard/seen on radio stations and television stations from Nashville to Sacramento, contributing weekly spots on fantasy football.
In 2011, Dolan won the 14-team SiriusXM Hosts’ League, comprised solely of hosts on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, pulling out a championship after finishing as a runner up the year prior. He was also the champion of the 12-team SOFA IDP Experts’ League in 2010. In 2013, using our projections with some minor personal tweaks, Dolan finished 3rd out of 130+ experts on the Fantasy Pros' 2013 Preseason Draft Accuracy rankings. He bested that in 2015, when FantasyGuru.com’s projections finished 1st overall in the Preseason Draft Accuracy rankings.
Dolan is a deranged Philadelphia Phillies fan, and witnessed the uprooting of several trees in Center City Philadelphia after the Phils captured their second world championship in October 2008. He subscribes to the theories of Bill James and other sabermetricians, and his dream job (except this one, of course) is to run an MLB franchise as general manager. In the meantime, the PA native is quite content following football for a living.
Dolan is constantly providing his thoughts and answering questions on his personal Twitter feed, @FG_Dolan.
