Fantasy sports are fun, but we’d be lying if we didn’t tell you they can stress you out more than they should.

Whether you watch a missed field goal end your hopes in the fantasy football playoffs, or watch your NBA DFS lineup teeter on the cash line – sometimes, your fandom gets lost in translation.

Here at FanCave, our goal is to bring out the fan in fantasy sports, through thick and thin. Enjoy the tilt, enjoy the stress, enjoy the ride. We are here to help you turn your part-time effort into a full-time profit.

Joe graduated from Xavier University in May of 2017 and now works in sales for the Milwaukee Bucks. He is a die hard Musketeers and Bucks fan while also touting the Brewers and Packers.

Jacob Jacob Wright | Content Director

A Marketing graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University, Jacob now works for Better Home and Garden Realty and also holds an extreme passion for social media, being the owner of @DFSClutchBoy. He began playing DFS during the 2012-2013 NBA season as a casual player and in 2015 is when he began to take it more seriously. Jacob built a reputation during the 2016 MLB season when he gave out free lineups for the entire season including a cash streak of 21 consecutive main slates on FanDuel.

He lives a risk adverse lifestyle so it makes sense that he focus on cash games on all fantasy sites. Don’t be fooled though, he’s not afraid to fade the chalk. Feel free to reach out to Jacob for any questions regarding NFL, NBA, MLB, CFB, or CBB. He’s happy to help and is always accessible on Twitter.

Chris Aliperto is a 39 year old small business manager in St. Paul, Minnesota, who resides in Lakeville, MN. A seasoned fantasy sports veteran, Chris has been around since the inception of DFS, and has been playing Season-Long Fantasy for over 20 years. He grew up on a baseball diamond, and spent his 20’s and early 30’s there as well, coaching at the high school level for almost 15 years. Also specializing in NFL and NBA, Chris fancies himself as a fantasy jack-of-all-trades. He is married, and has 3 kids who he loves to travel with as much as possible. He can also be found near his pellet smoker, cooking low and slow.

 Johnny Espizito | NFL Director

Johnny is a business owner/writer/artist/podcast host. Johnny played multiple sports, but Baseball and Football is where he excelled. He’s a member of pee wee and high school football state championship teams.

His insight is unique, by not being number driven. The eye test is his bread and butter, just like the pro scouts. In DFS, his #CriminalOwnership hashtag has become a daily staple of the community. He looks to bring his “shoot from the hip” style to FanCaveDFS. Everything is a shot, don’t become a victim!
