The Fantasy Sports Writers Association is pleased to announce our three-member Hall of Fame class of 2016:
Peter Kreutzer - Peter devised one of the first rotisserie player pricing systems in the late '80s, and his baseball projections were among the first pieces of fantasy content published by ESPN Sportszone. Peter's "Ask Rotoman" series has appeared at ESPN.com, Baseball Prospectus and MLB.com. He is the founder of the Fantasy Baseball Guide and Fantasy Football Guide magazines, and a founding manager in Tout Wars.
Ian Allan - Ian launched Fantasy Football Index in 1987, creating one of the industry's most important, innovative and essential publications. The Index was the first magazine to attach the term "Cheat Sheet" to player rankings, and the first to incorporate an experts poll, which gave a national platform to many fantasy analysts.
Lenny Melnick - Lenny was among the first fantasy personalities to appear on national television, and, in the early '90s, among the first to host a fantasy-focused radio show. He was an original member of LABR and Tout Wars, and a title winner in both. Lenny has appeared on many sites and media outlets, including FantasyPros911, SiriusXM, FNTSY and "This Week in Baseball."
This year's class was elected on December 14 by the FSWA selection committee. We congratulate our new members, and look forward to celebrating their careers in the weeks ahead, on various platforms.
