    I think it would be cool if people shared some goals they have set (or may want to set) for themselves between now and the end of the MLB Regular Season.

    Goals don’t have to be about winning $XXX,XXX amount of dollars, they can be:
    To improve your bankroll management strategy?
    Maybe construct a stronger research routine?
    How about trying to find a healthier balance between life and DFS?

    My Response:
    1) Personally I’ve found more success since I got much stricter with my bankroll management. I plan to continue to do that and write myself a plan for how I will balance my MLB/PGA action while adding the NFL, and at MLB’s conclusion, adding NBA & NHL.

    2) I will be heading back to college in September, and will be living with roommates for the first time in my life. I don’t want to be a DFS hermit but I still want to commit enough time to DFS that I can be competitive and continue to grow my bankroll. My plan is to create some tools for myself as well as use more of the tools available here on RotoGrinders so that I can concentrate my efforts into a shorter time period.

    3) I plan to go through my results from the first half of this MLB season using the RotoGrinders Bankroll Tool and find what game types have brought me the most monies. While 3-4 months is hardly a long enough sample size to merit drastic changes, I would like to see where my highest ROI has come from and maybe tweak my daily approach/game distribution to take advantage of those more favorable game types.

    Cant wait to hear others thoughts & responses!

    Love the plan you have going forward! I am returning to college in the fall myself but for the first time as a DFS player, I use to just dabble in NFL and occasionally in MLB but I am curious to see how it works with class and everything else going on. Good luck on your goals as I think they are a great way to move forward!

    I will be doing a 10 slate challenge as seen here. And from there I will continue forward to my end goal of finding my niche in DFS.

    Well Im going to re-deposit one more time. This time only 10 dollars.

    Im never playing MLB on Draftkings again. They lost me for life with the scripting, 6 man stacks, uncalled for pitcher scoring and the unnecessary 999999 entry limits.

    Im going back home to Fanduel.

    10 days

    Bunt Only (Single entry)

    We’ll see how it goes. Might even chart it and make a blog or something. After the 10 days if I bust Im dropping MLB for the rest of the year and just focusing on football.

    1) Build a lineup that breaks 70 FD points in MLB.

    2) Stick with my DFS routine.

    3) Save the most important for last. Once lineup locks and I’ve checked ownership %, put my phone and CPU away and spend time with my family.

  • FrancisBooth

    My goals are to not use the following phrases once in the second half….
    ‘Baseball sucks.’ ‘I am never playing baseball again.’

    I have to downgrade my goals to attainable status. Initially had a live final goal but MLB is quite difficult. New goals are attainable and modest.
    1) Achieve monthly wins bonus on Fantasy Aces while maintaining profitability.
    2) Finish two projects on NHL scoring from last season
    3) More difficult one of making it to the 3rd day of a survivor tournament on Fantasy Aces
    4) Come up with a nightly plan for NHL
    5) Restrict my access to checking scores after lineup lock once per week.

    What’s wrong with the pitcher scoring? I think FD and 4 points for the most unpredictable W is a main reason I haven’t played there much.

    CG, SO, Perfect Game points are even more ridiculous imo. 4 pts is a little high on FD. Maybe 2 pts for a QS and 2 pts for the win would be better balanced?

    I think this is a great thread and a great question and I think goal making is a great idea when it comes to DFS, especially baseball.

    My goals are fairly modest. I should not I’m exclusively a low-stakes player, never entering a contest that is more than $3. I also have learned to practice strict bankroll management, which means no more than $6-7 on any particular day, until my bankroll grows.

    My goals are two fold:

    RESEARCH / LINEUP CONSTRUCTION

    - I want to establish a daily research check list that goes through relevant facts in an orderly fashion.

    - I want to discipline myself not to pick my lineups too early.

    - I want to get better at GPP strategy, overall.

    RESULTS

    - Continue a winning record in $1 and $2 Head 2 Head games, as that is where I’ve enjoyed the most success in terms of baseball. I was on a huge roll over a while but that’s tamed of late, but still holding own. Want to get back to consistent winning.

    - Build a winning record in 50/50 games. I’m frustrated with my success rate here. I do well sometimes, but too many nights I’m well short of the cash line and it’s frustrating.

    - I would like to win a Single Entry GPP OR finish Top 5 in a quarter arcade. I’ve gotten close — 5th in a Single Entry GPP and I’ve been around 20th in an arcade. Basically, in financial numbers, this would get my bankroll into the triple digits (I told you I was low stakes) and that would be a good boost of confidence for next year.

  • kantiger77

    I should add I am tracking my winnings since the first of July to see how I do in various contests.

  • JHols1nger

    Winning a GPP and having that bankroll spike heading into football season would be amazing.

  • scottmsteiner

    While it’s good to have goals and look at past results you should also realize that the game will most likely change going forward.

    The fish are gone for the most part. All-Star break is the end of MLB DFS for the casual player. Most have given up or moved on to NFL preparation. I suggest that you reduce your bankroll in play and concentrate on GPP contests.

  • stats99tuff

    single entry gpp’s. if it doesn’t win i spent $1.00

  • kamuy

    Keep my head above water and end September in the black.

  • Olhausen

    Win that 100,000$ tonight. For real though I just want to keep improving from where I am now. I have learned a lot in the first 3 months and if I improve as much in the 2nd half as I did in the first half I will be in great shape for football season!

    a) More Profitable than 1H

    b) Do the work – dont get lazy. Hurt me in June.

    c) Try to post 10 200+ point nights on DK (Only 4 in 1H)

    That’s damn good doing it 4 times already. I have done it twice and gone over 190 5- 6 times. Can’t seem to crack 180 though lately.

    Sounds like my June and early July. 1 step forward and 2 steps back – thus my note on getting lazy. I dont think I worked as hard. Ready to go for the back half!

  • AndThisGuyPeedOnIt

    I’m just hoping to tread water, but if I could get my DK account back to even before NFL that would be swell.

    I cashed out two grand profit from FD which I will reload for NFL. I have exactly $3 in my FD account (and a bunch of FDP, I guess) so I might just try to see how long I can ride that $3.
