I've been around the game of football my entire life. I feel very lucky to still be around it every day. I don't know where I would be in life without it. I never get enough so I turned to fantasy. It's just more football. Football is my job, my hobby, and what I enjoy most in life.


As for my personal life, I have a girlfriend, 3 cats and a dog. I like to work and spend time with family when I can. I still play intramural football and basketball. I like to do yard work and swim. I don't have a ton of hobbies unless you want to talk football or watch film, then I'll do that all day.


Always here for any DM's or messages you may have. I appreciate every one of you!

Austin Evans

Staff Writer/Graphic Designer


Hey there folks! My name is Austin Evans and I’m 24 years old currently living in Kansas City. I am a father to the adorable golden retriever pictured above. My day job is architecture, but fantasy football is my passion. I was introduced to the wonderful game my freshman year of college at Iowa State and it was love at first sight.

I began as a very casual player, but after that first year I was hooked. Since then I have created several leagues with various friend groups, coworkers, and family. It truly is a game that brings people together. Nowadays I am in too many leagues to keep track of, but it's all for the love of the game.

Andy Will

Staff Writer


How’s it going folks? I’m Andy, the in house Scotsman of the Scouts. I live in Aberdeen Scotland in the U.K where I work as a football (soccer) coach for Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust and the Scottish Football Association following graduating with an Honours degree in Sports Studies from Aberdeen University.


I have a passion for most sports and following a trip to New York in 2013 that list grew to include ‘American Football’ and the NFL and in turn I became a regular visitor to Wembley Stadium in London when the game is brought to the United Kingdom, and now I’m hooked. I have been playing fantasy football since this trip to the U.S in a 12 man league with a group of friends. Through my job I have had an interest in analysis and statistics which I have transferred to the fantasy world where firstly I kept regular records for my personal league but now I look forward to sharing my thoughts and findings about the wider fantasy football world with you all.

Hello everyone! My name is Matt Daniel, I am a 25-year-old Business student. I spent four years of my life as active-duty Air Force which has sent me to every corner of the world. But now I have settled down in Pasco, WA with my wife Rachel while I finish school. 

Despite living and growing up in Washington, I am a die-hard San Francisco 49ers fan. My older brother got me into the 49ers at a young age and I never looked back. I started playing fantasy football in back in 2012 and it has been a huge part of my life ever since. I hope to continue as a writer for Fantasy Scouts while I grow my Twitter community and get my 49ers podcast up and running in the near future.

Matt Nein

Owner/Senior Writer


Hello all, my name is Matt and I am 26 years old and I live in Alabama. I am married to my wonderful wife Kelsi and am a dad to 2 Pit Bulls.

I have been playing fantasy football since 2012 and dynasty since 2014. I was just a casual player at first until I began to pursue a career in sports management. I studied for 3 years at the University of Alabama and was fortunate enough for the Alabama football team in 2013. I had the pleasure of meeting many scouts and team personnel during that year that helped put me on the track to a career in sports. In 2017 I moved to Minnesota to finish school at Minnesota State University Mankato. I graduated with a major in sports management and a double minor in computer science and business administration

Over the last nine years I have been able to successfully mix my schooling in sports to help learn and understand the game of football on a much deeper level. This in turn has helped me become a much better fantasy football player and evaluator when it comes to players. If you ever have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me!

Philip Darrow

CAP Analyst


Hi all, my name is Philip and I am a father of 3 married to my wonderful wife Angela for 15 plus years now.

I have been around football for almost all my life.  My father and I bonded over watching the Broncos and John Elway and I played offensive tackle and defensive tackle.   I’ve always loved numbers and applied it to football for redraft and now a dynasty. 

I will be looking at the salary cap and how this can affect teams long term decisions and provide opportunities to buy low on some players anticipating roster changes.

Hey everyone, I’m Andrew Woodruff. Since I could walk my dad has always had me around football. As I grew older, I have went from watching and learning, to playing, and now even coaching the sport. Along with that, I’ve used my love as a math teacher to jump into fantasy football for the past seven years as I have used my background to find meaning in my analysis based on the stats behind every player, team, and coach.

Corey Buschlen

Staff Writer


What’s happening y’all, my names Corey Buschlen. I am 22 years old and I eat, breath and sleep this game. I’m the resident Canadian on the staff and have a BBA specializing in Accounting from a college in Canada that you’ve never heard of. Co-Wolf, Fantasy Stock Exchange on YouTube, established in March of 2020. 

I feel like I think differently than most fantasy analysts. Surface level analysis and narratives is what I aim to break and debunk to find the deeper truth. Firm believer that every situation requires context and data to decipher. Models and formulas are important to establish baselines, but professional judgement can impact how those baselines are used and how to determine outliers. We all know outliers win championships and they should not be disregarded, but instead studied to predict future outliers.


Die hard Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan B.T.B (Before Tom Brady) and finally enjoying being a fan for the first time in my adult life. 

Chance Hopkins

Staff Writer


Hello all! My name is Chance Hopkins. I’m 22 years old and currently reside in Oregon with my fiancé Cheyenne and our 1-year-old son Camden.


I have been playing fantasy football since 2012 but didn’t get into dynasty until 2016. I consider myself a film junkie, as I’m constantly finding myself watching film of prospects not only for research purposes but out of pure enjoyment. My family is from Alabama, and I bleed Crimson (not only literally) and have the entirety of my life.


My main focus is player analysis, as I thoroughly enjoy dissecting the games of each and every fantasy-relevant player, but I like to think of myself as a Swiss Army knife who can dabble in just about anything. If you have any questions feel free to ask!
