DFS Coaching

Joe is a former Division I and pro hockey player who spent time in the New York Rangers and Anaheim Ducks minor league affiliates in the ECHL. He is known throughout the industry for unique statistical analysis in DFS and using metrics to leverage success from contrarian options.

He was nominated as the 2016-17 NHL Writer of the Year by the Fantasy Sports Writing Association and his work is now a full-time employee for FantasyLabs, a key component of The Action Network. Joe has been featured on 4for4.com, Rotoworld, Sports Illustrated, as well as many other fantastic fantasy outlets throughout his journey.

Now that Joe’s hockey career has come to end, his focus has shifted to predictive analytics and coaching people weekly in daily fantasy sports. His approach to DFS is based heavily on proven predictive statistics, metrics, and game selection with a specialty in higher-stakes and small field GPPs.

Though knowledgeable at all positions, as the creator of the Rushing Expectation running back methodology, Joe has carved out a unique niche in the community for predicting success and evaluating running back talent. He invented the Expected Success Rate (eSR) metric that uses data from every NFL play since 2000. Ultimately, Rushing Expectation separates offensive line play from running back talent, one of the hardest things quantify in analytics.

Coaching sessions with Joe can include, but are not limited to:

  • NFL, NHL, and MLB coaching
  • Assessment of your own personal risk tolerance and DFS goals
  • Bankroll management and game selection concepts
  • Lineup-building techniques for all game types
  • Position-specific weekly research and how to sift through narratives
  • Game theory
  • Weekly lineup and bankroll reviews
  • Identifying Cash Game Plays vs. GPP plays
  • Vegas concepts and how to best leverage information
  • Help to develop your own effective and repeatable research process

Joe’s coaching rate includes all necessary pre-session reviews of your game, but feel free to accumulate your own list of talking points for your custom session.

“Working with Joe has resulted in an exponential improvement in my ability to assess picks, use data to make decisions, and look back at my performance objectively. His teaching style is open and informative, as he’s not afraid to share the exact methods and tactics he uses in his own process. I quickly went from a negative ROI in multiple sports to a consistent winner thanks to his guidance, and continue to work with him to further improve as a DFS player. His rate is also considerably low compared to the value he offers as a coach. I highly recommend working with him!”
