GUEST NAME BIO

***This bio was pulled from his bio on Amazon, where you can purchase his award-winning consistency guides***

Bob Lung has been playing Fantasy Football since 1985 and has been a national Fantasy Football writer for the past 20 years. Bob has written for numerous large Fantasy Football sites like Creative Sports, FoxSports, Fanball, and RotoExperts. He has also appeared on Sirius Radio’s Fantasy Sports Channel. He currently has his own site, www.BigGuyFantasySports.com.

His annual Fantasy Football Consistency Guide has been nominated 5 times (2017-2021) and was named the “Best Fantasy Football Publication” in 2018 by the FSWA (Fantasy Sports Writers of America).

Bob has created a unique approach to the importance of identifying consistency in Fantasy players and has used that knowledge to dominate Fantasy leagues. This has led him to numerous Fantasy Football titles against other Fantasy experts and his local leagues.

Bob has created his site to share these secrets of consistency with other Fantasy owners. His site provides you with a vast collection of strategy articles, for each of the major offensive positions, which you can use not only for your draft preparation but also throughout the entire season. However, the best tool on the site is the Consistency Report, which allows users to enter in their scoring method and see which Fantasy players were the most consistent players in THEIR league.

They talk about getting started in the industry, obstacles they may have had to face, and just life in general. The show aims to help those who want to break into the industry as well as those who are already there. Podcasters, writers, analysts, bloggers, and more.
