      2016 DraftKings FBBWC Finalist

    Hey there everybody! I’m CJ Kaltenbach, one of the RotoGrinders hosts and writers. I go by the handle ‘cjkalt’ on most DFS sites (theseige on Fantasy Aces and FantasyDraft) and am ranked in the top 50 overall. The folks at RotoGrinders (aka Smartwater asked me very nicely) wondered if I was willing to do an AMA, so I obliged.

    Some basic facts about me:

    - Started working for Daily Fantasy Bootcamp in May 2015 and joined Rotogrinders staff in February of 2016. Created the NBA marketplace package) in October of 2016 (If you haven’t checked it out, what are you waiting for?

    - I started playing Daily Fantasy Sports in September of 2014

    - I’m a licensed attorney in Missouri

    - Boston sports teams and fans are the best in the world

    - I have a law degree from Saint Louis University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemical Engineering from Notre Dame

    - I hold season tickets for STL FC, which is a Division II soccer team

    That just about covers it for the basics, so fire away!

    Honestly the only thing that matters is how much you win vs lose, in tournaments being in the bottom 10% is the same payout as the 50th percentile so why does it matter where on that chart you fall?

    So you feel that every person who has won a millionare maker would be a better authority than you if they also provided content?

    Have bartenders in STL stopped mourning the fact that your good-looking friend no longer joins you? I’ve heard it can be a long process.

    Do you still do coaching? I was looking into that a little bit, looking to get better at this. Do you feel like coaching in general is a good investment?

    I’m sold out at the moment but if your interested shoot me a DM, will be happy to put you on the waitlist.

    It’s like anything in life, if you do it right and you work hard and you are willing to listen it’s a great investment. Having had multiple students qualify for live finals shows that the process can work

    Honestly don’t even go to that bar that often now that you don’t live here anymore, do the tilting from the chair with the 6 games streaming at home now

    It’s been easy so far but if he tells me to play Victor Oladipo one more time I might get angry ;)

    Haven’t had the privilege yet to win the milly, hopefully some day.

    Pretty sure it’s 100k but I’d have to go back and check had a few scores in that area

    How come you have a soccer season ticket but don’t play EPL regularly? Would love to see more EPL stuff on RG!

    What sport do you feel has the most variance and which sport have you had to take the most contrarian approach in? For me, its been MLB. Do you prefer DK or FD roster structure for MLB?

  • wolfjb1

    Is it possible to get too attached to a player so that it actually hurts instead of helps. I’m referencing your irrational love of Will Fuller. It seemed like a running joke that you played him every week, but do you think it was ever detrimental, as opposed to helpful? I realize he may turn out to be Jerry Rice, but that doesn’t seem to help for DFS on a day to day level.

  • feekdogg

    Why are you such a potty mouth?

  • SelfCharmer

    Why don’t you play any EPL games if you have a soccer season ticket, lets grow soccer!

  • gfather716

    I’ve been strictly playing 3 max and 100 player on FD… Been up and down, mostly down. Last night I played 3 quintuple ups and won 2 of them. What’s the difference as far as lineup construction?

  • anoor

    What are your thoughts on upcoming merger. How would you like to see a combined FD/DK website, app and offered contests/roster construction look?

    Because waking up Saturday mornings to set lineups is normally the very last thing I want to do on a Saturday morning

    There are so many elite ones I don’t want to make a list and leave someone off unintentionally but Saahil and Ehafner are the gold standard imo

    It was only irrational cause he never came through but if you look at prior year lots of sharp DFS players kept rostering Melvin Gordon all year long because they believed in the talent and he went off this year

    You can’t judge a player off a 16 game sample size, is it annoying when the guy fails Week after week? Sure but it’s the same process that got me onto Julio week 4 (in the preseason and the haters can just deal with it), Terrell Pryor, Jay Ajayi, Melvin Gordon Week etc no matter a process there will be outliers, this year happened to be fuller and I’ll be ready to play him week 1 next year
