James, aka Jag, is from the UK and has been playing fantasy soccer since the late 1990’s when it was purely a season long game run by newspapers. At the time you had to mail in or ring premium rate phone lines to make your transfers. Over time this became more of an obsession and he had success on a national level in more of the shorter tournaments (weekly and monthly prizes) culminating in finishing 2nd nationally for the 2010 Soccer World Cup and just missing out on a five figure prize.
About 3 years ago companies like FanDuel and Mondogoal tried to bring DFS into the UK but the market wasn’t there for them and they quickly closed down however Jag was hooked and started to play other sports on DraftKings that allowed UK based participants. Now, Jag gets involved in most DFS sports from eSports to NFL and his biggest win was an $18,000 take home on Christmas Eve 2017 (thank you Todd Gurley).
Jag can be found at DFS HQ contributing Soccer info as well as confusing Americans with his British sense of humor!
