Shawn Childs (MLB, NFL) has been a high stakes Fantasy baseball and football player since 2004 where he had success in his first season (three titles and $25,000 in winnings). In early years of the high stakes market in Fantasy baseball, he was ahead of the curve in player evaluation, draft value, and free agent bidding setting up four top-five finishes in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship. He has four AL-only Auction titles, one NL-only title, and five Main Event titles plus an overall title in 2012 at RTFBC (netted $10,000). This success led to an induction into the NFBC Baseball Hall of Fame. His success in the high stakes market led to a career in providing Fantasy Baseball and Fantasy Football content. On the football side, he’s competed and won in all different formats – auctions, draft championship, main events, and high-dollar leagues. He won 2nd place overall in the 2014 Most Accurate Salary Cap Expert contest at FantasyPros.

As a dual-sport player, it was natural to transition to the daily games where he is a “swing for the fences type of guy.” Childs has appeared in one FanDuel NFL Live Final and one DraftKings NFL Live Final, a season-ending tournament which led to a couple of chances to win over $1,000,000. His best day in DFS came in the summer of 2016 when a wild ride netted $70,000 and a chance to participate in the finals of the FanDuel MLB Live Championship where the winner would take home $250,000. Childs believes that Fantasy sports are a great outlet in life where a person’s passion can turn into a big win. As much as he’s won in Fantasy sports, Childs has also lost many battles. The down days are what motivates him to be a better player and help others find the potential pitfalls in Fantasy Sports. Childs provides weekly quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end reports that are one of the many perks of the NFL DFS package. You won’t find reports more in-depth than those written by Childs. In baseball, he is one of the few writers in the country to tackle the whole player pool. This gives a Fantasy owner a consistent view throughout the inventory each season.
