Ray Flowers

MLB/NFL Analyst      

Ray Flowers has been a full-time fantasy analysist for the last 16 years – who has done that? – spending all his waking hours breaking down baseball, football and even hockey back in the day. For the past seven years, since the first day of the channel, he’s been on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio six days a week spewing opinionated analysis with his co-host Kyle Elfrink on the SiriusXM Fantasy Drive (Sirius 210, XM 87). Known for his analytical approach, Ray eschews pitching and quarterbacks early in drafts and isn’t afraid to predict outcomes that go completely against the grain if the data leads him there. When he’s not slaying Twitter with wondrous responses filled with charm and snark, or winning FSWA Writing Awards, he can be found watching a superhero flick, taking a swim or pounding vodka Red Bull’s into the wee hours of the morning.


 Ray's Hitter Breakdown - 9/7
Posted by Ray Flowers on Friday, September 7, 2018 - 15:05

A quick primer for the Hitting Coach piece that will appear seven days a week at Guru Elite. There will be a smattering of data, pertinent to setting up your daily squad. There will be ballpark data. Which parks favor what type of hitters? There will be some BvP data, and yes, it does matter. We will try to list some umpire data if there is anything significant to be gleaned from it. In the end, I’ll throw all the data into the hopper and try to come up with some solid daily advice on the men that swing the lumber.

 Ray's Ramblings - No Vlad, No Eloy
Posted by Ray Flowers on Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 13:00

Vlad Guerrero will not play in the big leagues this season. Neither will Eloy Jimenez. It’s a disappointing end to the season for both men who performed exceedingly well this season. You were warned that it might happen though. Shohei Ohtani has suffered further damage to his elbow throwing his future into doubt. Ray will also touch on the struggles of Glasnow and Kopech. Alcantara is staring. Cruz is blasting. Diaz has homers, so does Gattis. Mikolas is slowing. Ditto Severino. So had Muncy. Morrow may not return. Rosario is streaking. Ditto Story. Wheeler is ok while Peraza and Chris Shaw are going in opposite directions...

Posted by Ray Flowers on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 - 16:07

Each week on Wednesday, Ray Flowers will break down the quarterback position. There are a handful of signal callers that you always can feel confident in starting. We know the names. At the other end of the spectrum, there are a handful of quarterbacks you should never be starting. We know that as well. It’s the twenty quarterbacks in the middle that really matter. Ray will review the entire position each week letting you know which quarterbacks should be started and/or avoided on a weekly basis.
