TWENTY-ONE YEARS! That’s right, The Huddle has been a full service fantasy football web site for the past 21 years. Since 1997 The Huddle has been the leading online fantasy football destination and our goal has remained the same – provide fantasy football fanatics everywhere with the best fantasy football resource on the Internet. On top of that we strive to be one of the most affordable online services. The Huddle is only $29.95 for returning members and just $34.95 for new members. A small price to pay for full access to The Huddle’s industry leading and award winning information all year long.

The Huddle has some of the most loyal members in the industry. Every season over 85% of our members renew their memberships.

Huddle Co-Founders David Dorey and Whit Walters have been fantasy football junkies since 1990 and full-time professionals in the fantasy football industry since 1999. In 2009 both David and Whit were nominated for the Fantasy Sports Writers Association’s Hall of Fame. The Huddle’s writing staff not only share David’s and Whit’s experience, but also their level of commitment and passion for fantasy football. If they don’t live and breath fantasy football, they won’t be on staff.

From the beginning The Huddle was known for high quality and accurate advice and information. When FoxSports.com was launching their fantasy football coverage in 1999 – The Huddle was who they called to be the sole provider of all their fantasy football content. When Brady Games, a division of the largest publisher in the world – Pearson, wanted to enter the fantasy sports industry in 2004 with a high quality fantasy football magazine – The Huddle was their choice to author the publication. The result was the Fantasy Football Handbook, WINNER of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA) Award for the best magazine in the industry.

Our analysts can be read and heard across the country – from USA Today to Fox Sports & KFAN Radio to the New York Daily News.

Don’t just take our word for it. When Huddle Member Paul Friel won the $200,000 WCOFF Championship he said it best. “If you want to win your league use the Huddle.” Read our testimonials to hear what others have to say about The Huddle.

When the Internet Sports Awards were the premier recognition service for the fantasy football industry from 1996 to 2002 – The Huddle took home the award for the #1 Fantasy Football Web Site for FIVE YEARS in a row. Rumor has it that the ISA couldn’t stand giving The Huddle another #1 award so they closed up shop after 2002.

The Huddle was a top finalist five years for FSTA Awards for the Best Online Service. The Huddle was also a top finalist in 2007 and 2009 and the 2006 WINNER of the FSTA Award for Best Draft Kit. The FSTA Awards are the highest honor in the fantasy sports industry and we are very proud of The Huddle’s recognition as a leading Fantasy Football Information Service.


Huddle Co-Founder David Dorey won this intense competition in 2004, but his prowess goes well beyond that single win. He’s finished lower then seventh place only once, and when compared to every other expert over the past ten years David’s overall performance makes him the #3 fantasy football expert of all time.


The Huddle Co-Founders and staff participate in industry “expert” leagues each season. The competition in these professional leagues can be fierce, and we’ve won our share of titles. The Huddle has brought home an industry league championship 16 times and won over a dozen other local league titles. Bottom line – we play to win and often do.
