Football Diehards' Staff
Our staff is led by Senior Editor Bob Harris. Bob is one of the original Fantasy Football Diehards, starting the TFLReport in 1993. He received one of the highest honors in the industry, the "Writer of the Year" award, from the Fantasy Sports Writers Association (fswa.org) in 2005. He is informative and funny -- not a bad combination!
Mike Beacom is the director of sales for Fantasy Sports Publications. His written work has been featured in FSP magazines since 2003, and he now writes a regular column for FootballDiehards.com. Beacom also serves as the president and chairman of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association.
John Laub, the man previously behind the highly respected Audibles Web site and information service, has won more than $10,000 in national Fantasy contests. Now his focus is on providing weekly regular-season rankings to FootballDiehards.com FlashUpdate readers. Laub might not be infallible, but we'll put his career-track record up against anybody you'd care to name (we've also told him "no more tuxes").
Bill Robertson is co-founder of Fantasy Sports Publications, Inc., which features the Pro Forecast, CheatSheets, DraftBook and Football Diehards magazines. Bill is known for his sharp player rankings and gutsy drafting. Make sure and check out his current rankings on our live, customizable, Web Cheatsheets page.
Emil Kadlec isn't worth much, but we keep him on anyway! Sure, he started the Pro Forecast Magazine in 1990 and co-founded the WCOFF.com. Big f-ing deal... Seriously folks, Emil is president of Fantasy Sports Publications, Inc., the largest publisher of Fantasy Football magazines in America. FSP (fspnet.com) has been in business for over 22 years and this year will distribute over 850,000 copies of four Fantasy Football magazines -- the CheatSheets, Pro Forecast, DraftBook and Football Diehards Magazine -- and is the company responsible for FootballDiehards.com.
Matt Kelley - Soon after launching PlayerProfiler.com, Matt Kelley became the irreverent wrestling heel of fantasy football. When he is not burning narrative bridges, Matt is a sports analytics aficionado and seasoned fantasy football analyst who hosts the FootballDiehards weekly podcast and contributes to FootballDiehards, RotoViz, and RotoWorld.
