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.

**Note: I will highlight the GPP pitchers I am using the most in bold
DRAFTKINGS MESSED UP A LOT OF THE PHILLIES PRICES, WHICH WILL SHOOT THEIR OWNERSHIP THROUGH THE ROOF AND INCREASE THE OWNERSHIP OF EXPENSIVE PITCHERS. IT MAKES SENSE TO FADE IN GPPS BUT STILL USE 1 OR 2 OF THE MISPRICED GUYS AS A SALARY RELIEF.
ELITE PITCHERS TO TARGET
WHAT UP! LET’S GET WEIRD! IT’S LAUNCH DAY! I just want to take a second to fill you guys in on the process with the new ELITE site. I will be providing elaborate daily articles and positional cheat sheets for the MLB slates throughout the month of September. On days like this I would advise you to dial your volume back to almost nothing (a garbage 3-game slate which I would tell you not to even play)!
