Putting it All Together

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.

I could use this lesson to simply say, “Goodbye. It was fun. Now go out there and profit!”

After all, I have covered everything I needed to cover, and you now know everything you need to know for constructing winning daily fantasy football lineups.

There are a few things I want to say, however, before I send you on your way.

I won’t take up much of your time — I promise.

Really, I just want to say this:

Does each player on my team have a high floor, relative to their price? This is a question you should ask yourself about each and every player on your team, each and every week.

_Does each player on my team have a high ceiling, relative to their price?_This is a question you should ask yourself about each and every player on your team, each and every week.

Am I forcing any players onto my roster, to the detriment of the rest of my lineup? Each week, you should ask yourself this question. You should ask not “What do I gain from each player my roster?” but instead, “What do I lose?”

Am I giving anything away? No spots on your roster should be “throwaway” spots. Ever. No spots should ever be true “punt plays.” Every player on your roster should serve a purpose. Every player should be someone who provides your team as a whole with added safety and upside.

Am I treating this slate like the most important slate of my life? As the season progresses, it can become easy to just “throw in a team with very little research and hope it does well.” Don’t do this — ever! Take each slate seriously. Don’t “punt” any weeks. Don’t give anything away. Each slate you play, after all, has the potential to be the slate that makes your entire season all at once. As such, each slate should be treated like the most important slate you will ever play.

Got it?

Good.

Now go out there this season and put this knowledge to work. Go out there and profit!

As for me? I’ll be around. You can find me on RotoGrinders and in my other RotoAcademy courses, sure, but let’s also make a date to meet up with one another. What do you say? How does this weekend work for you? Let’s meet up at the top of the daily fantasy football leaderboards — does that sound good to you?

Awesome! I’ll be there waiting. I’ll be on the lookout for you.
