RotoExperts.com became a prime player in the Fantasy Sports industry when the site expanded to become a comprehensive hub of in-depth Fantasy Sports information in 2008.

The Anthem acquisitions of RotoExperts and SportsGrid resulted in a new major media entity, with RotoExperts supplying award-winning Fantasy content via video to SportsGrid and FNTSY.
