About Eat, Drink and Sleep Football

With a healthy obsession to all things football, we at Eat, Drink and Sleep Football (shortcut: EDSFootball.com) have two primary areas of focus: Fantasy Football and the NFL Draft.

Our site's owner, Kevin Hanson (@EDSFootball), has consistently ranked at or near the top of expert accuracy leaderboards in both fantasy football rankings and NFL Mock Draft accuracy.

NFL Mock Drafts and Accuracy

Among the 113 experts/analysts tracked in 2015 by The Huddle Report, Hanson's 2015 NFL mock draft ranked as the most accurate. Over the past five years (through 2019 NFL Draft), Hanson ranks 1st on their overall leaderboard in NFL Mock Draft Accuracy.

Starting with the 2018 NFL Draft, FantasyPros also began to track the accuracy of NFL mock drafts (although their scoring methodology differs from THR). Hanson finished top five in 2018 NFL mock draft accuracy (out of 137 experts tracked). In 2019, Hanson ranked 6th (out of 138 experts tracked).

Fellow EDSFootball contributor Brendan Donahue ranked top 10 in 2018 NFL mock draft accuracy (via FantasyPros). In addition, Brendan has finished top five in NFL mock draft accuracy in two of the past three years based on The Huddle Report scoring.

NFL Picks Accuracy

For the 2018 NFL season, FantasyPros started a site (BettingPros.com), which tracks the accuracy of NFL picks against the spread. In their inaugural season tracking the accuracy of NFL picks, Hanson finished 8th of 140 experts tracked.

Fantasy Football Rankings and Accuracy
