GPP Killers: Red Flag Statistics to Avoid

GPP Killers: Red Flag Statistics to Avoid is a course that looks at specific stats for both hitters and pitchers that are generally negative in GPPs. Not every stat in MLB DFS is created equal, and while some help predict the safety you’re looking for in cash games, they can also hurt the ceiling you need in large-field tournaments.

In this course, you’ll learn:

• Why both park size and layout matter for hitters
• What stats to avoid when selecting your GPP pitchers
• What stats to avoid when selecting your GPP hitters
• Why umpires are an underrated way to gauge matchups in tournaments
