DraftKings NFL Player Pool

Have you ever heard someone complain that “Only those who put in a ton of entries make money in DFS”? If so, you may have thought: “Okay…if that’s true, why don’t I just learn successful multi-entry strategy myself?” What most people fail to understand, however, is that the best multi-entry players do not use their large number of entries in order to “cover all the bases”; instead, they use their large number of entries to cover all the possible combinations on a small, sharp list of favorite plays. Each week this NFL season, a couple of the best multi-entry players in daily fantasy sports will be sharing their “narrowed-down player pool” with you, in order to help you create a large number of sharp teams at once and maximize your multi-entry profits!

Conference Championships

Here we are at the end of the season. We have one final slate to this NFL season, so make sure you enjoy it. With only two games four games to build a core around, so I’m going to focus on my favorite play at each position of the weekend. With only two games most plays will be somewhat chalky, but I think the best way to approach this slate is to lock in the best plays and then look to differentiate with a few contrarian plays, which could be all the difference you need. Let the others make minus EV plays with their core, not you.

Even though it will be chalky, I want to focus all of my lineups on stacking the Atlanta Falcons offense. This game has the highest total of the week at 60-points, is being played in a dome vs. the other game in New England winter weather, and are facing a Green Bay defense that gets crushed through the passing game. The Falcons offense has been the most efficient since the 2007 Patriots!
