FanShare Sports Incorporated is pleased to announce it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Rotogrinders.com to bring its expertise in aggregate DFS ownership sentiment to premium members of RotoGrinders.com. The partnership allows RotoGrinders to deliver FanShare expertise in tracking ownership sentiment via a branded content distribution wrapper referred to as the FanShare Buzz ScoreTM for the Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour and National Football League (NFL) players. Under the terms of the agreement, RotoGrinders.com will display the Buzz ScoreTM for players across both leagues on its website through an API that provides real time updates that are visible to Rotogrinders.com premium members. DFS ownership sentiment scores empower daily fantasy sport players with insights when building their line-ups and making strategic player choices.

"We’re excited to be partnering with FanShare Sports for NFL and PGA.  FanShare's Buzz Score is an innovative approach to ownership analysis that we think our members will love."

Mr. Spears, CEO and Co-Founder of RotoGrinders.com, is a leader in the DFS industry and oversees the suite of actionable tools and insights for RotoGrinders Premium subscribers that help them make informed line-up decisions.

"I've worked with projected ownership for years now, and a primary weapon in determining the behaviour of DFS players is understanding industry sentiment. FanShare is offering a window into the buzz surrounding NFL players, and I for one couldn't be more excited to see how it can help us make better daily fantasy decisions."

Chris Gimino, Premium Content Director at RotoGrinders.com

"Rotogrinders.com is a leader in daily fantasy sports and has an established reputation for providing accurate and timely information to its clients worldwide. Our commitment is to provide the most accurate and timely information regarding DFS ownership sentiment to a wider audience and Rotogrinders.com helps us accomplish that objective.
