Brendan Roberts, Senior Editor & Fantasy Sports Expert for Sporting News, will be hosting a Fantasy Baseball Seminar from 10:30 - 2.
Don't miss this most informative seminar with one of the nation's leading fantasy baseball experts.
ABOUT BRENDAN ROBERTS: From playing sports, watching it and covering it, I believe in one basic principle: The why of sports is much more important and interesting than the what.
This is why I work in sports. So I can learn more about the game and share what I've learned. To me, there's nothing better than diving into the game itself. Now I have a way to channel my inner baseball and football thoughts - fantasy sports. Since playing fantasy sports is more about future predictions than past results, there are a lot of "whys" that need answered. And being successful in fantasy sports takes more than knowledge of the game and its players. There's also a strategy to playing fantasy sports as well. Some of the most knowledgeable sports people I've met were the worst fantasy sports players.
Which is why I'm here. I was one of the first hires for the fantasy website (www.fantasy.sportingnews.com) in 2000 and have been writing for the site since. I've played fantasy sports about 15 years and have learned a lot about it during that time, both in strategy and the players themselves. Ask me about any baseball or football player, and I can get you a stat prediction with reasoning within 30 seconds.
