Derek VanRiper

Derek is the Director of Media for RotoWire.com, where he's been a two-time finalist for the FSWA's Baseball Writer of the Year award, and winner of the Best Football Article on the Web (2009) and Best Baseball Article on the Web (2010) awards.

Tim Heaney

Before RotoWire, Tim spent a decade with KFFL.com and USA TODAY Fantasy. The Boston University alum was a finalist in the FSWA awards and competes in some of fantasy baseball's biggest expert leagues, including Tout Wars and LABR. He squeezes in fantasy advice between rants about television, music and craft beer. Tweet him @Tim_Heaney.

Todd Zola

Todd has been writing about fantasy baseball since 1997. He won NL Tout Wars and Mixed LABR in 2016 as well as a multi-time league winner in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship. Todd is now setting his sights even higher: The Rotowire Staff League. Lord Zola, as he's known in the industry, won the 2013 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Article of the Year award and was named the 2017 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year.

The RotoWire Roundtable started a few years ago as a way of offering up multiple perspectives on the player pool with the hope of generating engaging dialogue about the players we differ about. Of course, it also yields a consensus "opinion" with the average, or mean rankings from each of the five panelists.

This year's panel includes:

  • Jeff Erickson 'JE'
  • Derek VanRiper 'DVR'
  • Clay Link 'CL'
  • Todd Zola 'TZ'
  • Tim Heaney 'TH'

    The initial ranks were compiled the afternoon of Friday, March 16. We have one final update to the list scheduled for 3/16 and 3/23.
