Lesson 4: Paying Down at Pitcher - Two-Pitcher Sites

JM Tohline (JMToWin)

JM Tohline (Tuh-lean) – DFS alias JMToWin – is a novelist and a DFS player who specializes in high-stakes MLB and NFL tourneys, with a strategy geared toward single-entry play in multi-entry tourneys. He joined the DFS scene at the beginning of the 2014 MLB season, and has since won five DFS championship seats and two separate trips to the Bahamas. His tendency to type a lot of words leads to a corresponding tendency to divulge all his DFS thoughts, strategies, and secrets…which is exactly what he does in his RotoGrinders articles and RotoAcademy courses. You can find JM on Twitter at JMToWin.

But in between the days on which they hit The Big Score, they will lose back most of (or more than) what they won.

Every day is different!

While others are looking for the “one key” that will help them, or the “one approach” they should be using, you will be continually keeping your eyes open for the best approach for the slate in question – and as you do this, you will be able to capture the most upside that is available to you on each slate.

Don’t get locked into a set plan! Adjust from day to day.
