When it comes to fantasy football, everybody has an opinion but not everybody knows their stuff.
Matt Borcas knows his stuff, and he’ll be sharing his fantasy-football acumen for free on Wednesday, Aug. 20, at Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch.
Borcas has been writing about fantasy football since August 2012 for Grantland, the Disney-owned sports and lifestyle website. He earned his position by winning a season-long fantasy writing competition during the 2012 football season.
The Lake Catholic graduate had stiff competition—including two published authors, a journalist who had written for the New York Times and another who wrote for a newspaper in Washington, D.C.—but he still came out on top.
Borcas will discuss the upcoming fantasy season at the library, including positional previews, general tips for owners, draft-day etiquette, sleepers to watch and more.
And you better hear what he has to say; because, even if you don’t, the other guys in your league will.
“Though I can’t guarantee you’ll win your league as a result of attending this event, not coming would put you at a severe disadvantage,” Borcas said.
(And you should trust Borcas’s predictions. After all, he knew LeBron was coming back.)
