Upon reading the FFE timeline, you can see why you have come to the right place in your pursuit of fantasy expertise.
Josh Obusek received his initial invitation to participate in the annual Fantasy Index Experts Auction Draft League (fantasyindex.com), as it appears in the annual Fantasy Index Magazine, as well as on their website. Along with the league, Josh was invited to write analysis of his team and other member’s teams for the magazine.
Also in 2015, Josh was invited to write weekly articles for Football.com. Josh wrote a weekly piece on fantasy takeaways from the week’s action, as well as a weekly Vegas View piece that looked at how to use the Vegas lines to help with your weekly fantasy decisions. You can still view some of the articles at: https://www.football.com/en-us/obusek-josh/. It was Football.com’s last season covering American Football.
Josh Obusek launched FFE in 2014 and began with appearances on ESPN radio on Pittsburgh, providing weekly advice on fantasy football starters.
Josh was also asked to appear in a podcast at the Fantasy Index website (fantasyindex.com) to discuss the importance of selecting weekly starters.
Throughout the 2014 season we compared our weekly rankings against the top analysts at ESPN (Matthew Berry, Christopher Harris, Tristin Cockcroft, and Erik Karabell) and the rankings of FF Today. We emerged victorious (as you can see below), meaning that a larger percentage of the players in our weekly rankings finished in the actual top of the rankings for the week. In other words, our rankings were the most accurate.
2008 – 2010
While pursuing an M.B.A. in Finance at the University of Pittsburgh, Josh Obusek saw how common methodologies used in finance could be applied to fantasy football. He took a particular interest in the use of the term, beta, a measure of how volatile a stock is in relation to the overall stock market. Josh designed a way to use the beta concept to measure fantasy performance in relation to the league as a whole. This measure became a whole new way to evaluate NFL players for future fantasy performance.
1993 – Present
Josh Obusek has participated in fantasy football leagues of all sizes and types, from tiny leagues to large leagues, form family leagues to industry expert leagues, from standard scoring to unique scoring systems, from snake drafts to auctions. At every level, Josh has won.
We relaunched our website as a fantasy football education and instruction destination, with courses ranging from the basics of fantasy football (Fantasy Football 101) to Josh Obusek’s entire draft evaluation system (Draft Optimization). Further courses on Daily Fantasy and Weekly Decision Making are coming soon.
For the second year in a row, Josh was invited to participate in the annual Fantasy Index Experts Auction Draft League (fantasyindex.com), as it appears in the annual Fantasy Index Magazine, as well as on their website. Along with the league, Josh was invited to write analysis of his team and other member’s teams for the magazine.
In the FFE labs around the Pittsburgh metropolis, Josh is wearing an Albert Einstein wig and a white doctor’s jacket in his around-the-clock pursuit of the perfect daily fantasy system. While both he and his obsessive, relentless demons know that perfection is impossible, the image of it is too beautiful to not pursue it with full abandon.
