2018 Fantasy Football World Rankings!
30. Tom Northrop
29. Michael Foresta: We spoke to Michael about his ranking - "Being one of the best in the world at something...no matter what it is...is a huge accomplishment...it's a bonus if it's in something that you absolutely love and would be doing even if you were one of the worst in the world at it."
28. Frank Taddeo:
My overall world ranking is truly an honor. I am humbled and blessed for the opportunity to be ranked among the world's greatest players. For me, it all began over 25 years ago back in Staten Island playing in home leagues against friends. The passion for fantasy sports began years before the birth of the internet, waiting for box scores to come out in the newspaper the day after the games, and updating the league standings with pencil and paper. To be able to hone my skills over nearly three decades led to creating and operating the only successful over-the-counter fantasy betting program in a Las Vegas Sportsbook years before the arrival of DraftKings and FanDuel. I have several top 8 overall finishes in the FFWC Main Event and numerous high stakes league championships and dominator awards. However, becoming the first ever back-to-back FFWC Top 100 Players in the World Invitational Champion the past two years against the best season long players in the world, is easily my proudest accomplishment thus far playing high stakes.
27. Tyler Shamy
26. Craig Bodenmiller
25. David Kheel: It’s a great honor to be ranked in the top 30. Last year was just my third year playing high stakes fantasy football and I’ve loved every minute of it. The challenge of playing against so many other great players makes playing at FFWC truly special, and to be ranked in the top 30 makes me truly proud. Of course, like any good competitor I want to be #1 so I’m looking forward to another great year this year and hopefully I can continue to climb up the rankings.
