FanDuel Single Entry Series: Touches

Welcome back, and welcome to the final week of the Single Entry Series. How have you been doing? Don’t forget to check the results here . If you’re going to see how well I’ve been doing, make sure you look at all five weeks! Last week was basically a streak of bad lineups until I finished strong yesterday with an 84th place finish.

I’ll be looking to bring my “A” game in the final week, which is a $50 buy-in event. Do you want to dance with the Dingo? Do you want to come at the best players in DFS and prove what you can do? Are you one of these guys in the forums talking about how multi-entry doesn’t take skill? Cool. Pony up the $50, and come prove you can hang. There will be some nice rewards on the line if you can successfully accomplish your goals.


This may come as a shock to hear, but you can’t accumulate fantasy points unless two things are true: 1) Your body must actually be on an NBA basketball court and 2) You have to touch the ball. You can lose fantasy points without the ball (turnovers), but you can’t gain them. It’s not hard to understand why I think it makes sense to be evaluating the touch profile of the players on your Single Entry Series roster.
