My idea was simple. Bundle the best premium season long fantasy football sites into one subscription. Then offer them for over 60% off. And when I say the best, I mean the best. 50+ expert league titles, 70+ different FSWA & FSTA awards and 8 different FSWA Hall of Famers.
I'm putting my name on this because I know the quality of the rankings, analysis, tools, draft software, apps and alerts of these sites for season-long play. So click the boxes below to learn more about the individual sites in the Ultimate Fantasy Football Resource and see why one of the best fantasy football players in the world, the famed "Condia" (Charles Chon, the $1,000,000 2015 DraftKings World Fantasy Football Champion) says "I use the websites on RotoPass every day during the NFL season."

Ever heard of the Zero RB strategy that's sweeping fantasy leagues? Well, that started on RotoViz in 2013 when $250,000 NFFC winner Shawn Siegele wrote the original Zero RB article the same year he finished first and second in the NFFC Primetime Main Event. The 10-time Main Event league winner now runs a football division with 40-plus contributors.
Yes, "Zero RB" put RotoViz on the map but it's the site's over 1500 thought-provoking and norm-challenging articles and 20 different apps that make it the relied upon resource for high stakes and casual players alike. Whether you're looking for tools to set your season long lineups, exportable cheat sheets for your draft, or apps to help you win trades, RotoViz has the tools you'll need.
Looking for the next breakout? RotoViz publishes metrics driven analysis so you can get the next breakout player to win your league. Their metris suggested selecting Le'Veon Bell, DeAndre Hopkins, and David Johnson earlier than ADP in their respective rookie drafts, and they've now emerged as three of the five most valuable players in dynasty. One of their metrics, the Phenom Index, loved Allen Robinson before the 2013 draft.
Like you, RotoViz is fanatical about fantasy football, looking for any and every edge to get a leg up. They have weekly projection tools that help you set your season long lineups. They have a Game Splits App so you can see how Tom Brady plays when Rob Gronkowski is out of the lineup. The Buy Low Machine helps you make trades by flagging the players with easy upcoming matchups. RotoViz even has a dynasty league trade calculator built with proprietary analytical tools. Fantasy players who have caught "Best Ball" fever know that RotoViz's ADP App helps them track leagues in one easy tool.
On the human side, David Caban (senior fantasy analyst and the mind behind FFDRAFTPREP) and Blair Andrews (managing editor and the author of The Wrong Read) are two of the rising stars in fantasy writing.
As someone who makes his living as a writer, make no mistake, I appreciate the written word. But sometimes it helps to take an author's biases out it and just present the data without any bias. And man, does RotoViz deliver the data. The reason you haven’t heard about RotoViz is because your competitors don't want you to know about it. And soon, you'll see why.

Keeper & dynasty leaguers rejoice as RosterWatch is here. Many sites take a break after the Super Bowl, slowly gearing up during the summer, finally ramping up in August. Many sites... but NOT RosterWatch. These guys live, eat, breathe and sleep football 24/7/365. Alex Dunlap and Byron Lambert are there, in person, at the Senior Bowl, the NFL Combine, University Pro Days of all the top college athletes, NFL Training Camps and so much more. No more taking other reporters words for it. Now, thanks to RosterWatch, you can watch exclusive video these guys take of players and hear athletes and coaches talk so YOU can see and hear for yourself how someone looks and thinks.
But it's not just the exclusive audio and video these guys have of rookies and others. It's their tools like their legendary Matchup Tool, HyperDFS lineup generator & Ultimate Draft Cheat Sheet that help you crush. Leaving no stone unturned, their industry first "Vegas Tool" gets you fantasy analysis and picks from the Vegas insiders who have the best handle on how the games will go down. Creators of the Touchdown Dependency Metric, RosterWatch has a complete set of simple to use tools, rankings and analysis that take players day by day, week by week all year long. The only company dedicated to personally covering and analyzing fantasy football every day of the year, it's easy to see why they are the rising stars of SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio.
You know, these days most sites reach out to me to see if their site is good enough to join RotoPass. But in this case, I approached them. I met these guys at the NFL Combine in Indy last year when I wondered who the guys were asking every coach the insightful fantasy questions. I went up and introduced myself and thought "I need to keep an eye on these guys." A year later, I asked them if they'd be in RotoPass as I thought they'd be a great complement to our package, especially for those in keeper or dynasty leagues. I'm thrilled they said yes and soon, you will be too.

"The Bill James of Football." That's how, you know, the NY Times described Football Outsiders editor-in-chief Aaron Schatz. The original NFL analytics website, Football Outsiders now brings its sabermetric-style statistical analysis to help fantasy players see (and win) the game in a way that no one else does. RotoPass users get access to their revolutionary and widely used DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average) metric that is the most advanced and accurate statistic for predicting future team performance (and how that team performance will affect your fantasy players).
The DVOA Matchup View gives you important splits of DVOA for each week's games while the DVOA vs types of receivers breaks down the matchups you want to exploit and the ones you need to avoid. Along with yards and passes per game adjusted for the quality of the receivers being covered plus details like which teams struggle against slot receivers or what defense doesn't give up rushing yards to running backs but does allow lots of receiving yards to running backs, not to mention game charting stats like cornerback coverage, pass pressure rates, play-action rates and broken tackles you'll never make an ill-informed line-up decision again!
Looking at football in a completely different and in depth analytical way. FootballOutsiders will not only make you a better fantasy owner, they will make you a smarter football fan. They've had many imitators over the years but none are as good as the original, which is why they continue to be a valuable content partner to ESPN.com. And as a member of RotoPass, you too can join the revolution and see what a difference FootballOutsiders makes.
