Steve Shoup

Steve Shoup grew up and lives in Northern VA. He is a diehard Washington fan, but is more realistic than his sister Megan. He grew up following the NFL Draft since he was a kid and then became obsessed with the NFL offseason. So much so that he created Fanspeak's On the Clock mock draft simulator and Manage the Cap free agency simulator. His love for the NFL offseason fed right into his love for fantasy football. Steve has decades of experience with Redraft fantasy leagues. He also has several years of experience with Dynasty fantasy leagues as well. More recently he has studied and actively played in NFL Best Ball fantasy leagues. Steve also plays NFL DFS and has several wins and top 10 finishes in tournaments on DraftKings over the past 9 years. He will be writing about the NFL Draft, Free Agency, Fantasy Football (Redraft and Dynasty), Best Ball, and NFL DFS year around. You can follow Steve on Twitter @steveospeak.
