Smitty, often interviewed on fantasy radio shows around the country, like on ESPN Radio, has been writing and innovating in the fantasy football industry since 2005. Immediately after diving into the fantasy football space, Smitty swiftly created one of the very first Player Trade Calculators. His passion for industry innovation sparked the creation of many industry-first fantasy football tools/features.
Despite being a fantasy football tool pioneer, what Smitty is most known for is making, and landing, Bold Predictions. Don’t take our word for it, watch the video below:

In 2011 alone, he grabbed two different back-to-back expert league championships, and he has won over a dozen expert league titles since 2005. Smitty called Arian Foster a top 5-10 fantasy rusher back when Foster was a 4th- to 6th-round pick… He also predicted the rises of: Russell Wilson, AJ Green, CJ Spiller, Dez Bryant, Cam Newton, Ray Rice, Jimmy Graham, Victor Cruz, Michael Turner, LeSean McCoy, Adrian Peterson
