About Winston Lee

I am a sports and gaming nerd that has been playing fantasy football since middle school (1993). Yes, those were the glory days before the internet, where we waited for the Monday newspaper to tally up scores manually in a notebook. I also graduated as an engineer from the University of Wisconsin, hence the connection to badgers. My whole life has been spent analyzing data and as the annoying guy who takes too long when playing strategy games. I started playing Best Ball in 2017 and it has absolutely fascinated me in terms of finding an edge against the competition. I want to share my insights with you and hope to learn from the fantasy community as well. As an aside, I love food and can talk about food for hours. Also, dad jokes. If someone could tell me a punny joke while feeding me a flame-broiled piece of fantasy football, that would be the life.

Let's just hope we get a couple good games in the divisional round as we could be facing down quite a few blowouts. Here's a review of last week's picks: Yellow Pick - PHI, which

Playoff Best Ball – Play for Free!

Playoff Best Ball is one of my all-time favorite formats since it forces people to weigh how good a player is against their predicted number of games and the match-ups they're facing. If Carolina somehow snuck into the playoffs, Christian McCaffery would not be a slam dunk #1 pick overall because Carolina would have been big underdogs and you would

2019 Week 18 Premium Picks – Wild Card Round

Oh man, what a week! Value picks stormed back after a putrid Week 16. Have to pat ourselves on the back for hitting the trifecta in Week 17 (TEN, CHI, NYJ) for the low, medium, and high risk strategies. There was one Fitzmagic sized whopper of an upset as the Dolphins toppled the Pats and knocked them off of a
