    Announcing DailyFantasyBootcamp.com, Brought to you by RG

    As some of you may already know I have recently launched a DFS education site (www.DailyFantasyBootcamp.com ) focusing on live training events with some of the best Daily Fantasy players as there are in the game. I’m especially happy to be working in conjunction with RotoGrinders on this project as they’ve been there with me every step of the way in my growth as a DFS player and personality since February of 2013 when DB730, SocrDave and myself started doing Grinders Live.

    We will be hosting MLB specific training sessions in three cities at the beginning of this baseball season.

    Los Angeles on Saturday March 28th

    Denver on Saturday April 11th

    Chicago on Saturday April 18th (UPDATE: SOLD OUT)

    Each bootcamp will have five expert speakers with a great DFS profile including Peter “CSURAM88” Jennings, Andrew “Makisupa” Wiggins, Derek “Notorious” Farnsworth, Justin “STLCardinals84” Van Zuldien, Drew “Dinkpiece” Dinkmeyer and Mike “Leonem” Leone from Rotoexperts/DailyRotoX, Dave “SocrDave” Kitchen from Fantasy Insiders, Mike “Hoop2410” Petta and Ryan “Birdwings” Lynde.

    Each camp session will end with a night out excursion for all the campers and speakers to hang out and sweat their lineups. There’s no better way to learn from and get to know this great group of players than to attend one of our Daily Fantasy Bootcamps!

    Purchase Camp Tickets Here

    If you can’t attend a camp live and in person, don’t worry! All the camp presentations will be filmed and hosted on the site for paid subscribers to view. Subscribers will have access to all of the webinar videos presented by our speakers as well as access to our daily projections spreadsheet for NBA, MLB and NFL.

    Hope to see you guys at one of the bootcamps and put some faces and real names to the screennames we see on the sites and here on the RotoGrinders Forums.

    This is going to be an amazing event, and RG’s stoked to be involved. $100 to learn from these DFS minds in person is a no-brainer (and will probably fill up quickly). Thanks Al.

    Any plans to do this in NY? Al, you know you want to come back to Syracuse! :)

  • Ryan138

    We’re looking to expand to more locations for our NFL and NBA camps. Places like NYC, Boston, Orlando, Nashville and Las Vegas are already on our list.

    Hope you guys can make it out to one of the baseball ones, but if not, maybe we’ll catch you at one of the NFL ones.

  • JDub07

    Should be a Vegas one for sure.

    We obviously can’t hit every single city in the country, but the plan is to hit enough spots that are accessible to enough people in every region by the time NFL and NBA camps roll around. As I said in the OP, all the speaker’s presentations will be professionally filmed and hosted on the site for subscribers. There will also be the option to pay for individual videos a la carte, just like we have offered for the daily projections but the monthly subscription will be the greater value by a large margin.

    Think it would be cool if DK ran a couple trip packages to these. I would definitely play

    lol, you just edited this. It said “For $100 it’s worth looking into” or something similar. The camp tickets and everything included are a $250 value minimum. We priced them at $100 with the intent of building in a LOT of value for the early adopting campers who are willing to take the chance to come and learn from us.

    I’m in, thanks Al, this is a great concept to stage for those interested enough to learn expert angles and tactics and understand the data more. I just started w NFL a bit in the fall, gone way more active w NBA daily with the real intent to focus on baseball, which I played a long time and have been an avid fan of all my life. Thought the NBA would help with the ‘process’ and approaches to DFS, but see there is a lot more to learn, though I am a data/stat guy from work life, so that helps. Look forward to the seminar – if by chance I want/need to switch from Chicago to LA one, is that possible later (if still available)? Thanks

    Al congrats on the new site wish you all the luck in the world boss. Looking at the Daily Projections page of the new site and was wondering how they were figured and what marker(s) are used to create the algorithm etc etc?

    When you go to KFC and order a bucket of chicken, you get the delicious end result. What they don’t give you is the entire recipe including the 11 secret herbs and spices.

    The daily projections on the site are directly from my spreadsheet that I use to make my lineups everyday in NBA, MLB and NFL. I reference them often on Grinders Live and the XM show I do with Dan. The adjusted Fantasy points per minute is the players average fp/m with the stats and weights that I deem most important and predictive applied to them which spits out the number you see on the daily projections page for each player.

    These are the numbers I use to build lineups on a daily basis and subscribers can now use them as well while applying their own minutes projections to personalize the sheet for themselves on a day to day basis. What I’m not going to do is give out my secret blend of eleven herbs and spices.
