Jordan Cooper

I’m a former stand-up comedian and former poker professional who has played DFS nearly full-time for 4 years. A perennial King of The Pitch contender, I have been consistently one of the top-ranked soccer players on DraftKings in addition to having multiple 5-6 figure GPP first-place finishes in NFL, NBA and MLB.

Known for having very conservative bankroll management, not massively multi-entering, and not chasing live final qualifiers, I am often made fun of as one of the most profitable “nits” in the industry.

I bring my frenetic personality to the DFS community as a contributor on RotoGrinders, co-host of the RotoWire Fantasy Soccer podcast & analyst on DraftKings Live video shows.
