David Gonos

David Gonos is a professional Fantasy Sports writer, which is kind of like one of those guys that gets paid to put Lego blocks together.

You can read more about David's career on his Google+ profile: David Gonos.


Gonos has been writing about Fantasy Sports online since 2000, and he has been helping Fantasy Baseball and Fantasy Football readers finish not-last for over a decade now.

While he has been playing Fantasy Football since 1989 and Fantasy Baseball since 1995, he actually started writing online about the games in 2000. After writing for the now defunct FFInformer.com for a season, he decided to start his own Fantasy Sports site, called FantasyRef.com.

In 2003, Gonos signed with CBSSports.com, where he worked as a Senior Fantasy Writer until 2008, mainly as one of the Fantasy Baseball lead writers, along with Eric Mack. But despite mainly writing about Fantasy Baseball in that span, he also wrote columns for Fantasy Football, Fantasy Basketball, Fantasy Hockey and Fantasy Racing. 

Gonos moved on to OPENSports.com in 2008 to serve as the Content Manager until December of 2010. He began working with RotoExperts.com for a year or so, and then he started his own site, DavidGonos.com in 2012, which is also the year he started writing about Fantasy Sports for SportsIllustrated.com.

Over his career, Gonos has also posted articles on MLB.com, NFL.com, FoxSports.com and USAToday.com.


David Gonos went to public school in Kissimmee, Fla., and then he attended the University of South Florida in Tampa.

He was expelled from the School of Hard Knocks because he gave too many hugs.
