Remember the First Commandment of Fantasy Football, “Thou must be on Twitter, where all news breaks first.” So you've joined Twitter but you're not quite sure who to follow. I recently provided you with five fantasy Twitter accounts you must be following. Here are five more accounts you must be following if you intend on winning your leagues this season.
Draft Wizard: Mock in minutes vs. the most accurate experts >>
1) Chris Raybon - Senior DFS Editor at 4for4 Football, Draft Consultant
I'm not sure if Chris Raybon is in Mensa, but he certainly should be. To say he is highly intelligent just does not do him justice. The work he puts into compiling statistics that you never thought of is so complex that I do not even pretend to understand how he does it. I just follow him, read all of his work and attempt to absorb as much of the knowledge that he spits out as I can. His capabilities are beyond my comprehension, but they are essential for all of my fantasy football needs, particularly in daily fantasy. You could follow Chris Raybon for his tweets alone, and you would gain a ton of useful knowledge, but do not sell yourself short with him. His content on 4for4 is really a step above the rest. He offers free and premium content, and if you are looking to earn a profit in daily fantasy this season, I suggest you pay for their premium service.
2) Pat Thorman - Pro Football Focus, Draft Consultant
A stat machine much like my above mentioned follow, Pat Thorman has some seriously complex articles written on Pro Football Focus. Pay close attention to his Twitter feed, not just for the stats, but his great insight and links to his top-notch work. You should be paying extra close attention to his Twitter feed in the coming days if you are interested in preseason daily fantasy. I've consistently Googled lineup advice for these preseason slates. Not only is Pat one of the few people who has taken the time to provide lineup strategy, but he also has the best preseason content as far as I'm concerned. He is also very engaging with his Twitter followers, and if you give him a follow and ask him for some advice I have a feeling he will give it to you.
3) Shawn Siegele - Pro Football Focus, Rotoviz
If I were to consider "Zero RB Theory" as my fantasy bible, then Shawn Siegele is my god. He is the architect of this theory, which has become more popular with each passing season since its conception. He is super smart and friendly. Plus, his timeline is loaded with links to work of other super smart fantasy analysts. Following Siegele will benefit you in the sense that will be getting the content of a ton of other notable fantasy follows in just one account. He is a part of the respectable team over at Rotoviz, where you can find his now famous article on Zero RB Theory.
4) Adam Pfeifer - Project Roto, XN Sports, DFS Boot Camp
Adam's Twitter bio states that he "writes about fantasy sports more than anyone probably should" and he is not lying about that. Well, sort of, because I cannot get enough of his work. In my perfect world, he would write even more. Follow him and try to keep up with the amount of content he cranks out. It will greatly benefit your chances of success. If you want to test your drafting skills against Adam, you will have to follow him. He routinely hosts mock drafts on ESPN.com, and you could certainly learn a thing or two by drafting with him. Like most of the Twitter people I have recommended, he is really nice and always seems available to answer a question. If you want to butter him up a little bit when you introduce yourself and ask for advice, say something nice to him about the Buffalo Bills.
5) Her Fantasy Football - HerFantasyFootball.com
This is one I consider another bonus follow because you are following three ladies on one account – three sisters to be exact. This football loving family is not just three women with a hobby. They are bonafide fantasy celebrities in their own right, and their content is legit. Their site has every fantasy related thing you should be looking for, including rankings, cheat sheets, links to other resources and original content. It seems the three sisters never sleep and are always making moves, most recently landing a show on Sirius XM Radio, in addition to their own weekly podcast on their site. Follow the link I provided, but don't stop there. Follow all three sisters individually for even more fantasy-relevant information that you need for the season.
I cannot stress the importance of Twitter enough when it comes to fantasy football. These may just be five follows, but they are five MUST-follows. Be on the lookout for even more Twitter follow suggestions from me. I promise to steer you towards the right people whose wealth of knowledge can do wonders for your team(s).
