I changed my process a bit for this past week. I was confident in the process going in, and it played out – at least for 1 week.

Again, I used consensus projections with minor adjustments to get an initial optimal lineup.(That lineup did score 151.28 points). From there I randomized the projections to choose 49 additional lineups. I randomized the projections +/- 10% to generate the additional lineups. There were obvious patterns and a handful of players that were in a high % of lineups (Brown/Benjamin/Bell, etc..) I manually chose the 11 lineups I liked best that did the best to mirror the ownership % that was randomly generated. I also filtered out lineups that would have too much exposure to one team (Still had lots of Steeler and Charger exposure).

I didn’t hit on everyone – I had quite a bit of exposure to Cam Newton, Travis Benjamin, and Dwayne Washington, but I hit on enough of the others where I overcame those misses. I had a lot of Antonio Brown (He was heavy chalk) Julio Jones (He was way underowned), and Michael Crabtree.

Even though I would have been profitable with a single lineup, I would not have had as large of a profit. I would only enter $100 Max with a single lineup. By reducing my variance, I am comfortable putting more in play each week.

Through 3 Weeks
Entries: $693
Winnings: $793.50

Profit: $100.50

    Couldn’t project the injury…although he still wouldn’t have likely hit value. Going in I had him projected at 10 pts. While he did next to nothing, the salary allowed me to get combinations of Bell/Brown and Julio in each of the lineups. So the play paid off in that sense.

    Congrats on the solid winning % this week, I admire your consistency. I got away from cash games altogether this week to test out the potential benefits of mass line ups and personally I loved it. If it wouldn’t be too much trouble to look up I wanted to ask what the average score for you to cash in your 50/50s was this week? I don’t need an exact figure, a ball park number would suffice.

    The average cash line was about 114. If you look at my results, you can see that on the lineup that won only $4.20. That one was straddling the paylines with a total of 114.3.
