Bridging the gap between beat writers and DFS players with Detroit Pistons Beat Writer Rod Beard @detnewsRodBeard hosted by @xBenJamminx
Questions Included (but not limited to):
What made you get into beat writing and how big of an actual Detroit pistons fan are you (if you are)?
When did you hear about DFS and did you become interested in it because of people reaching out to you on Twitter?
Have you ever played DFS? If so, what do you think of it, if not, are you willing to try?
What’s a typical day for you like?
What do you think is the best way to bridge the gap between beat writers and DFS players?
What would you say to other beat writers about interacting with DFS players and what would you recommend they do in their daily schedule to better reflect the demands/concerns of fantasy players?
What is the consensus opinion within your industry about DFS and its players?
How aware do you think NBA players are of DFS? Has your interaction been with DFS players been positive or negative?
What is the end-game/goals for you?
Star Wars or Star Trek?
My recommendations to beat writers:
Cater to fantasy reporters, make the information more relevant and interesting.
