I'm Chris. I'm an MLB/NFL daily fantasy sports hobbyist with several participation trophies. I write about DFS at Occupy Fantasy. You can find me on DraftKings at @cdr02989. While I might post from time to time about players I am thinking about, I reserve the right to play different ones. Your mileage may vary. I breathe oxygen, drink water, and consume calories. We have so much in common!
