Tommy G

Founder/MLB & NFL Analyst      

Tommy G, Founder of Guruelite.com, is as close to a household name as there is in the Daily Fantasy Space, and if you follow him on Twitter (@TommyG) or Instagram (@TommyGDFS), you know he is not your normal fantasy nerd. Tommy spent the majority of his adult life as a Wall Street trader and educator, specializing in technical analysis and and daytrading Futures, but has now taken these analytical skills and applied them to his true passion, fantasy sports, to become one of the most decorated and definitely the most recognized DFS player in the industry.  The Godfather, as he is referred to as in the industry, began his DFS career in 2011 and has taken the fantasy world by storm over the past 6 years.  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 also starred as the main character 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.   Recently, Tommy has partnered up with Michael Rapaport and Barstool Sports to do a weekly podcast on ITunes called "The Fantasy Football Follies," which in just it's 4th episode, broke the top 10 for Sports Podcasts on iTunes.

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 28 live finals appearances under his belt to date. This 2017 MLB season Tommy became 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 raked in over $300,000 in net winnings between the 2 sites for the 2017 MLB season, securing him as one of the top DFS players in the world for MLB.  He then followed that up with a monsterous football season in 2017 where he hit for $183,000 in week 4, qualified for both major Draftkings finals in Florida, and then put a beautiful bow on the season by kncking down 7th place in the Maimi final for another $200,000.

Tommy is a brash and raw personality in the industry, who has a cult like following.  As a former daytrader, The Godfather loves risk, and prides himself on his contrarian "all or none" GPP strategies, which have 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, Guruelite.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.

 Tommy G MLB DFS - Monday 9/12
Posted by Tommy G on Monday, September 12, 2016 - 17:56

Carrasco… Really the only top pitcher I like. I know Price is going to be popular, but honestly I don’t love him in this spot today so I will be paying up for Carrasco if I spend up. I will have a ton of Carrasco tonight because I think somehow he ends up being a bit contrarian. Also, he is AMAZING on the road and most people don't know this...

 TOMMY G DFS - NFL WEEK 1 RUNDOWN
Posted by Tommy G on Saturday, September 10, 2016 - 21:51

THE CHALK REPORT As the season goes on I will try to get this to exact percentages...being that it’s week 1 it’s very difficult to do.  I am going to list a few of the highest owned players I foresee coming in at each position. These guys are good cash game plays, but in tournaments will be highly owned.  I am fine playing a few of the these guys on your team, but if you are trying to win a GPP with 5 or 6 of these guys on it... good luck... I am going to do the chalk report and then give you some GPP pivots.  The first guys listed are going to be popular, but the pivots should...

 Tommy G MLB DFS - Wednesday 9/7
Posted by Tommy G on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 - 18:19

FADES Strasburg... He will be fairly popular on DK because he is 3k cheaper than price, but I want nothing to do with him. I don’t start pitchers off the DL, I don’t start righties vs. Atlanta and I don’t love pitchers facing a team for the 4th time who have struggled against them thus far in the season (19 inn, 9 ER, less than a K per 9). No thanks...

 Tommy G MLB DFS - Tuesday 9/6
Posted by Tommy G on Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 18:04

Kluber is $12,600 and the next most expensive pitcher is $9,800 on DK. Keep in mind there are a TON of options today so he won’t be THAT crazily owned, but still will be extremely high, due to Luke Weaver being disgustingly mispriced at 4700. The most popular pairing on DK today is 100% going to be...
