About Me

My name is Joe Bond, and first of all I want to welcome you to Fantasy Six Pack. Now, let’s get to a little bit about myself and this site. I graduated from Virginia Tech, Go Hokies!, and after that went to work in the IT world.

During my college days, 2001 to be exact, I played in my first fantasy football league and quickly became addicted to it. I ended up finishing second in that league, which helped start the addiction. I can’t tell you how many leagues I have been in, but I can tell that I have won many of them and overall, I have been very successful in the ones I did not win.

Other than launching and writing for this site, I also contribute to the expert consensus rankings and other articles on FantasyPros.com, where I was the No. 5 ranked expert in 2014 for the Fantasy Football draft rankings, as well as No.1 for in-season Quarterback rankings and Kickers in 2016. I have also been ranked in the top 15 for Fantasy Baseball the last two years. I was also the content manager for So-Called Fantasy Experts.

I co-host the, The Fantasy Six Pack Hour Podcast, and have been a guest on multiple radio shows/podcasts to discuss fantasy sports, including RotoExperts in the MorningHome Run the JewelRoute 4 Sports and Pursuing the Perimeter. You can follow me on Twitter @F6P_Joe. Also be sure to follow the site on Twitter at @FantasySixPack  and follow our site on Facebook.

How did this site get started?

After college, a few of my friends that I played against regularly recognized that I was having continued success in our leagues, and started asking me for advice about their teams.

In late 2009, I was joking around with one of them that I should starting charging a fee for my services. He joked back saying, “Maybe you should start a blog”. Well, that idea blossomed in my head and I decided I enjoyed helping my friends out so much, why not use my addiction to fantasy sports to try and help anybody out there that wants it. So, in December 2009, Fantasy Six Pack was born, and the rest is history.

What’s with the name?

I’m guessing you get the Fantasy part of the name, so I will explain the “Six Pack” part.

The idea came from the first writer I recruited for the site, Garrick (you might ask who beat me in that first fantasy football league…well, it was Garrick), who said we should somehow combine fantasy sports and beer.

Since we weren’t going to be writing about beer (although we’ll bring it up from time to time), we had to spin it in a different direction. We came up with having the site discuss six different fantasy sports: Football, Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, NCAA, and NASCAR, making fantasysixpack.net a one-stop shop for pretty much all your fantasy sports needs, or at least we try. Since this time the site has stopped writing about some sports, such as NASCAR, but picked up more like DFS Golf and Premier League.
