Bill "Wink" Winkenbach
He?s the one man who made Fantasy Football possible. Bill ?Wink? Winkenbach invented the concept of Fantasy Football and ran the very first league -- GOPPPL, the Greater Oakland Professional Pigskin Prediction League.
His climb to glory began 50 years ago, in 1962. Find out his entire story by watching the video.
Chadd Bishop has played Fantasy Football for more than 15 years. He has won more than nine Yahoo! Fantasy Football championships, including an undefeated season. In all, Bishop has won almost 300 Yahoo! Fantasy Football games and has an 86% winning percentage.
Erick Grafemeyer has played Fantasy Football since 1999. His record in Yahoo! Fantasy Football is impressive, having finished in the ?Top 3? 22 times out of 36 leagues, and winning 11 times. He has been quoted as saying, ?I love this game so much I just can't get enough of it. Every year I find ways to play as much as I possibly can because I love it so much.?
Brian Music has played Yahoo! Fantasy Football since 2001. In that time, he has built up a 65% winning percentage. His teams have both ranked in the top two and have won trophies in over 70% of the leagues he?s played in, and have ranked in the top two in overall points in over 85% of his leagues. In total, he has over 23 years of Fantasy Football experience.
Greg Padgett has a ?natural knack for numbers? and has used his knowledge of spreadsheets and pivot tables, sophisticated mathematical formulas, and the game of football itself to amass a remarkable record. He is the only multi-winner of the prestigious 32-team NOVA Invitational, in which he triumphed 3 times.
Philip Lewis has played in 38 Fantasy Football leagues. He?s won his leagues 13 times, taken second place six times, and ranked in third place four times. In 2004, he won all four of the Yahoo! leagues he played in, and won a Fantasy Championship in every year except 2005. He has made the playoffs in every year since 2001.
Not only does Don Kasper beat his opponents week after week, he even creates endless webpages detailing how he is going to do it. Cajones that big belong in a Hall of Fame and we?re proud to induct them here.
Intense. Strong. Passionate. These are words that not only describe Mike?s beard but also his fantasy football prowess. Over the past 20 years, Mike has hosted a radio show about the game, run a blog dedicated to the sport and participated in over 300 leagues- winning 61 championships.
If there were a Fantasy Draft for Fantasy Footballers, Scott believes he would be the number one overall pick hands down. Maybe that?s because he had to build another fireplace just to make more mantel space for all his trophies. We just hope he?s as good at building mantles as he is at building dominant fantasy football rosters.
A veteran of Yahoo fantasy football for over 10 years, Micah has more metaphorical championship rings than literal fingers to put them on. With an astonishing winning percentage of over 85% in the playoffs, Micah was a virtual lock to be enshrined in our hallowed halls.
From his first championship at college in La Crosse, Wisconsin, this 30-year veteran of the game has seen it all. His numbers are staggering: 12 championships, 56 leagues, 17 top 3 finishes, 1 enshrinment in the Toyota Hall of Fame.
Calling Keith Mason a champion does the word ?champion? a favor. A ten-time (10!) champion, he even went undefeated in a 2007 season for the ages. During those ten championship seasons, he was nearly as unbeatable with 114 wins and only 26 losses.
Jon LaPointe just can?t help himself from dominating his opponents. Since joining the game in 2003, he?s towered over all 50 of his leagues earning 15 championships, 17 second-place finishes and a 75% win percentage against all competition.
