Austin Lowell



I run a relatively new site that focuses solely on fantasy baseball. We cover all things such as rankings, projections, updates, strategies, one on one advice, etc. I played baseball growing up, never made it to pro ball, but always had an knack for spotting talent and was always pretty successful betting on games. I minored in Communications at UCSD and have been participating in fantasy leagues and high stakes tournaments annually over the past 20 years. My picks were usually more accurate than most experts, so by the encouragement of many others, I started a site putting my money where my mouth is. Armed with a baseball, communications (with a focus on journalism) and gambling background (my dad had me making NFL picks against the spread for fun by the time I was six), the transition into fantasy analyst was only natural and quite enjoyable! I update our rankings throughout the season and are constantly keeping tabs on all things baseball, looking for anything to gain that competitive edge. The rankings are meticulously developed all off-season, focusing mainly on advanced metrics and analytics.
