Jeff contributes to The Action Network's season-long fantasy and daily MLB betting, as well as posts his picks in other sports on his personal page through The Action Network. This is Jeff's first opportunity to write about betting despite being interested in and placing bets for the past four years. Jeff has been a freelance sports writer - fantasy and traditional - for the better part of 10 years and has been featured on FoxSports.com, Yahoo! Fantasy, FantasyLabs, and 4for4.com.
Jeff is a contributor to the baseball betting and season-long fantasy sections of The Action Network, writing about adds/drops, injuries, and betting game previews. Jeff started in the industry as freelance fantasy baseball and hockey writer before adding DuPage (IL) county high school sports to his workload. His first full-time work in sports was with 120 Sports, now Stadium, as a production assistant. Jeff has most recently contributed his writing and editing skills to Expand The Boxscore, Fantasy Six Pack, 4for4, and FantasyLabs. Jeff was hired to TAN/FL by former TAN'er Matthew Freedman, who answers his phone the same way he starts podcasts.
Jeff has a BA in Mass Communications from the University of St. Francis (IL) with an emphasis on journalism and public relations. He spent time in front of and behind the camera in college, as well as four years on the school's radio station and one semester as the Editor-in-Chief of the USF Encounter student newspaper. Jeff also has a paralegal certification from Roosevelt University in Chicago.
