Greg Cosell

NFL Analyst

One of the preeminent NFL personnel and matchups analysts in the country, Cosell, along with NFL Films President Steve Sabol, created the "Matchup" concept in 1984. The resulting show was called "Monday Night Matchup," and it began as a breakdown of each week’s Monday night game. The show transitioned to covering the entire league and has since been called "NFL Matchup." Greg and the other contributors study and evaluate "coaching tape," which shows all 22 players on the field on every play. With over 40 years of experience studying tape, Greg is uniquely equipped to analyze the NFL game, and Greg’s NFL knowledge is as comprehensive and complete as that of any pro football analyst in the business.

Aside from his work at NFL Films, Cosell has been working with the owners of for a decade and a half, starting in the early-to-mid 2000s when Fantasy Points publisher John Hansen owned the Fantasy Guru site. For this new venture, Greg’s role and input to be larger than ever. In fact, it already is. In conjunction with, Greg in 2020 produced an NFL Draft Guide, which includes his evaluations of over 90 incoming rookies. The guide can be accessed for free on the Website (we decided not to charge for it due to the Coronavirus Pandemic). You can expect to see and hear Greg within the site’s multimedia offerings, and we will use Greg's vast knowledge of personnel and matchups - culled from hours and hours of study NFL coach's tape each week - to give our readers an edge over their competitors.
