Talent

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.

In any sport, the players with the most talent will always perform better over the long run than other players. As a result, in fantasy sports, the players with the most talent will always be the players most worth having on your roster.

Unlike season-long fantasy, however, we are required in daily fantasy to fit players onto our team within the parameters of a salary cap, and this means that “the most talented players” will usually be “the most expensive players” as well. It is because of this that balancing talent with matchup, opportunity, and price becomes so tremendously important. In fact, “talent” is typically going to be the least important component of the bunch.

My goal, in any sport, is to always have a general understanding of how talented different players are. In baseball, talent is extraordinarily important, as all players in a lineup, for example, will have pretty much the same “opportunity” (four or five at-bats) as one another; “talent” in baseball, thankfully, is pretty easily quantifiable through a variety of statistical and “advanced statistics” measures. In football, “talent” is important in that the chances for “huge plays” are heightened with more talented players; “talent” is a bit more difficult to assess in football in a numbers-based manner, but sites such as Pro Football Focus help us have a pretty good idea of the talent level of each individual player.
