Gridiron Experts Staff

Established in 2008

Gridiron Experts is an advisory website with fantasy football experts providing content and advice to help you win your fantasy league. Nearly all our fantasy football experts have over 15+ years of experience in drafting and fantasy strategy.

Gridiron Experts uses an equal balance of statistical data and fantasy football rankings throughout the year. We understand that the game of football is fought in the trenches and that stats are made to be broken. At the same time we look at trends and patterns and break down film to make the best possible prediction week in and week out. We are thankful to have such an awesome, loyal fanbase.

Mike Rigz
Mike is the founding member at Gridiron Experts with over 1000+ articles credited to his name. With over 20 years of fantasy experience, Mike has a unique style when picking sleepers and gems. He has always had an outside the box look at the NFL and rarely gets sucked into the hype over players or buzzing offenses. Mike looks at the game as a whole and doesn’t focus solely on individual stats. Football is not Baseball, and you need to factor in more when researching players to draft. Mike has three kids and lives on the West Coast. He’s happily married to a beautiful woman who also loves sports. Sundays are spent with friends and family watching games from opening kickoff to well into the evenings.

Anthony Cervino is a lifelong NFL enthusiast, especially of the Dallas Cowboys. He has been infatuated with the game since childhood and was introduced to fantasy football as a young teen. Back then, the league commissioner typed out the weekly newsletter and used the Daily News to tally scores. In a statistics-driven game of fantasy football, Anthony believes that sometimes you have to rely on that good ole gut instinct. Anthony resides in New Jersey where he lives with his wife, son and a Pomeranian that is named Roman (after Tony Romo). When Anthony is not immersed in the NFL or fantasy football-related activities, he enjoys bodybuilding and spending time with his family. Anthony is committed to giving you his best analysis and most accurate statistics to help you win championships. Don’t hesitate to tweet Anthony @therealnflguru about anything NFL or fantasy-related topics. He will always respond in a timely fashion.
