Twitter Interview Series
By David Dodds
June 24th, 2012

Twitter has rapidly risen to become an excellent source of breaking news and a collection of wide-ranging viewpoints. At the same time, however, it can a bit intimidating to the new user. It's sometimes difficult to know who to follow for quality fantasy football-related news. To help erase this difficulty, we have interviewed some of our favorite tweeters.

Name: Will Carroll

Twitter handle: @injuryexpert

Approximate number of tweets per month: too many

Number that are following you: too many

Number that you are following: 2,000

Tweeting since: it started

Occupation (when not talking about football): talking about baseball

Family life: n/a

Quick Bio (who you are, site(s) you represent, etc.): I write about injuries for SI.com and talk about sports on ROME on CBS Sports Network.

What is something unique about you that few would know about? I want to compete on The Amazing Race

What you do for fun during the football offseason: watch baseball

Favorite NFL Team(s): neutral

Favorite NFL player(s): neutral

Make your case for why fantasy football addicts should get on Twitter: quick breaking news

Except for yourself, give us three to five MUST FOLLOWS on Twitter: Jene Bramel, Peter King, Nik Bonaddio

Years playing fantasy football: 24

Favorite style of play (Dynasty, Redraft, Auction, Best Ball, Survivor, etc): Auction

Your biggest score(s) in fantasy football: 155

Name two players that you expect will be undervalued in most fantasy drafts this year:

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson.

Explain why you think these sleepers could drastically outperform their ADP:

Most people won't understand how to properly value them after knee surgery. The timing will confuse matters.

Name two players that will not be on your roster at any draft position. Explain why you think these busts could drastically underperform their ADP:

Robert Griffin III and Randy Moss - People will look at Griffin and see Cam Newton. Problem is they'll overdraft him compared to where Newton went last year. Moss is far, far too much of an unknown to be anything more than a late round flyer.

How much of fantasy football is skill? How much is luck? 80/20

What's the biggest mistake you see fantasy players make? Getting emotional about players or teams.

What do you wished you had learned about fantasy football five years ago? We should remove kickers from the game entirely.

Give a wild prediction about the 2012 season that most would be shocked if it happened (out on the limb thought): ACL injuries will be up significantly again this season as defenses adjust to anti-headhunting calls.

Super Bowl Teams and Score: Houston vs Philadelphia

NFL Rookie of the Year: Chandler Jones

NFL Comeback Player of the Year: Matt Schaub
