NEW: SlateIQ Showdown SIM - Steelers vs. Seahawks
So, you may be wondering what are we talking about here with “SIM” (short for Simulations).
It’s simple: We “simulated” the outcome of this slate based on forward-looking projections over and over and over again. Like, a lot. Once we have enough trials to deliver meaningful results, we examine the most optimal lineup from each trial and determine its characteristics just like we do with SlateIQ classic. When we’re finished, we have a pretty compelling look at the probability for each player to succeed that we can compare to expected player ownership percentage, to get a handle on players we might like to target more often than the field.
The bottom line is that simulations are becoming a very popular way to examine DFS player probabilities, and we wanted to take this opportunity to add another vantage point to help you analyze the upcoming showdown.
We’ll have these articles up for every primetime matchup, so we can all take advantage of the massive prize pools in these showdown contests on DraftKings. And unlike SlateIQ classic, we WILL be able to support this data for FanDuel as well (coming soon).
