Tommy G, Founder of FantasyGuruELITE.com, is as close to a household name as there is in the Daily Fantasy Space, and if you follow him on Twitter (@TommyG), you know he is not your normal fantasy nerd. Tommy has career winnings well into seven figures, while managing to become one of the first DFS players to break into the mainstream media world, winning the 2015 FSWA Radio Show of the Year Award for his show on SiriusXM Fantasy channel with Jeff Mans. In addition to doing 3 hours a day of radio for the majority of 2016, Tommy also has been featured in countless articles on the DFS industry, including headlining a full page spread in the NY Post titled “The Men Who Make 6 Figures off Fantasy Football.” He’s also starred as one of the main characters in the first ever Daily Fantasy movie called Living the Fantasy, in addition to being featured in an HBO Real Sports piece regarding the industry with Bryant Gumble, when a watermain break cost Tommy a shot at 1 million dollars.
Tommy was the first DFS player in the industry to qualify for a live final in all four major sports (MLB, NBA, NFL & NHL) and has a total of 26 live finals appearances under his belt to date. In the first 3 months of this 2017 MLB season alone, Tommy has become the ONLY PERSON of the millions of people who play daily fantasy to secure the maximum number of entries into Draftkings and Fanduel's once a year baseball live finals with a total of 8 entries between the two sites (5 on DK, 3 on FD). He has also already raked in over 1/2 million dollars in net winnings between the 2 sites for the 2017 MLB season, propelling him to the #1 DFS player in the industry for MLB, and football is right around the corner!
Tommy is a brash and raw personality in the industry who has a cult like following. He is a tournament player who prides himself on contrarian GPP strategies, which has propelled him to multiple $100,000 days in NFL and MLB. After spending the past 4 years working with some of the biggest companies in the industry, Tommy has now founded his own site, FantasyGuruElite.com, where he will be joining forces with John Hansen to provide the most hard hitting daily fantasy content around, to pair with FantasyGuru.com’s already epic seasonlong content.
