About Nick Mariano - RotoBaller

Just your run of the mill fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. Just kidding. I'm actually a slightly above average fantasy sports player who loves talking shop. I was ranked 2018's most-accurate fantasy baseball draft ranker, 2018's 11th-most accurate in-season fantasy football ranker (9th place in '17) per FantasyPros. NY born and raised, but now you can find me in Boston with my loving fiancee and more Red Sox fans than I ever thought I'd encounter. I run on trails and hike up mountains. Addicted to apples and peanut butter. I could read about cognitive biases forever. Yankees, NY Giants, NY Rangers. However, a decade of fantasy sports has really given me more of an appreciation for all teams. I also have a soft spot for the Buccaneers (it's a long story going back to Madden 2000). Feel free to reach out on Twitter, @NMariano53, I'll discuss just about anything.
