It’s 25 minutes before tonight’s NBA daily games close, and you want to bounce some ideas off of other trusted DFS fans. Or, the east coast games are halfway done and your bargain basement point guard is going off for a sure triple double and you want to BOAST!
The entire RotoWire family would like to congratulate The Professor, André Snellings on his big move to ESPN!
We here at RW have been lucky enough to work with Andrè since 2004, dating back to the annual flag football games in Las Vegas.
