John Breslin squirrelpatrol

John Breslin, aka squirrelpatrol, is a consistent top-ranked Grinder and RotoGrinders contributor. He is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh and graduated with an M.B.A. from prestigious New York University. John is a live final specialist who has won over 50 live final qualifiers, taking home first place in the 2018 FanDuel World Fantasy Baseball Championship and both first and second place at the 2021 FanDuel World Fantasy Basketball Championship. John has been playing fantasy sports since 1996 and is still scarred from being on the losing end of James Stewart’s 5-TD performance in 1997.

Andre Alford Drizzy26

Andre Alford is a top ranked DFS player who has quickly become a dominant force in multiple sports. He recently won a million dollar prize and has shot up the RG rankings as a result. He linked up with the RotoGrinders team in 2021.

Derek Farnsworth Notorious

Derek Farnsworth, aka Notorious, is one of the most recognizable names and faces in all of DFS, thanks in large part to the great advice he gives on a daily basis in RotoGrinders.com’s Grind Down for NBA and MLB as well as the First Look column that gives a preview of the day’s games from a DFS perspective. Before joining the RotoGrinders team, Derek received a Masters Degree from the University of Utah. When he’s not busy providing content, he’s dominating the industry as evidenced by his consistent top rankings in multiple sports. Farnsworth provides expert analysis for RotoGrinders Premium members on a daily basis during the NBA season and has also been nominated for five different Fantasy Sports Writer’s Association (FSWA) awards.

Nick Galaida nickgalaida

A failed high school pitcher, Nick discovered that he has a higher aptitude for analyzing and writing about sports than he does playing them. To his friends, he is better known as “The Commish.” When he’s not organizing a fantasy league, placing a bet, or writing an article, he’s probably nose-deep in a book—further illustrating the point that his niche in this world is as a nerd rather than an athlete.

Grant Neiffer gneiffer07

One of the most vibrant and interesting personalities in all of DFS, Grant Neiffer has economics and accounting degrees from Azusa Pacific University. He’s been playing DFS since 2013 and fantasy sports from the ripe old age of 10. Grant has qualified for countless live finals and is routinely at the top of the RotoGrinders rankings in all the major sports. He can frequently be found on GrindersLive shows and podcasts and producing written expert analysis for RG users. In 2021, Grant finished third in the DraftKings Sports Betting National Championship, taking home $230,000.
