Making the move to Pro Football Focus

May 17, 2017

I am very excited to announce that I have joined the staff of Pro Football Focus for the 2017 fantasy football season! It will be the exclusive home of all my season-long and weekly rankings for the year ahead as well as all of my written fantasy content.

It’s a tremendous opportunity for me and one that I am very grateful for.

Pro Football Focus has made a mark with its fantasy football content the past few years as it has been recognized as the Best News & Analysis Site: Single Sport for three years in a row by the Fantasy Sports Trade Association.

After NBC analyst and former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Cris Collinsworth became the majority owner of the company in 2015, he moved its corporate headquarters to downtown Cincinnati and the company has grown rapidly. Having PFF in my own backyard definitely is an added plus.

In addition to helping fantasy owners, Pro Football Focus also helps NFL teams win football games and helps media cover football with the help of its one-of-a-kind grades and data.

I am looking forward to joining Jeff Ratcliffe and his team of amazing fantasy analysts in the season ahead.

What does this mean for (GSI) and some of the other football commitments I’ve had in the past?

I launched GSI as a fantasy football website that offered fantasy content and league manager software in 2003. The very first piece of content that was posted there was the GSI Cheat Sheet – my 2003 fantasy football rankings. The website has gone through many transitions over the years and now is set for another major change. I truly feel that for both me and the website the best is yet to come!

As GSI enters its 15th football season we are rebranding it as the home of The GetSportsInfo Podcast. The year-round, weekly podcast will focus heavily on NFL and fantasy football, but also have breakout episodes that will allow me to tap into some of my other sports and hobbies I am passionate about.

The new GSI also features the #My1MoreThing Blog. I plan on posting some awesome content here fairly regularly, including some of my takes on topics across the wide world of sports. I hope that sports fans will interact with the post by leaving comments.

I am also very excited to announce that I will be returning for a sixth season as the co-host of Fantistics Insider Football with my good friend James Adams on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio (Sirius 210 / XM87). The show returns to weekend mornings in early July and will run into January.

In addition, I do plan on engaging with fantasy owners even more this year with Facebook Live and Periscope sessions during the NFL season. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and my growing list of commitments, I will not be able to continue to offer fantasy advice though via e-mail, text message, instant message or other off-the-grid platforms.

I will continue to do my best at responding to all on questions sent to me on Twitter @DanClasgens, but once the season begins it will be very hard to answer all of them. I will schedule a couple set times weekly though where I’ll guarantee a response on lineup questions.

Big things are ahead! I hope you will join me for the ride.
