    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.

    Will a rotogrinders subscription give access to the dailyfantasybootcamp content or are the two totally separate?

    Any subscriptions are separate from one site to the other and do not overlap. Two separate entities.

    As a competitor who wants to win, and maximize profit, as a DFS player, why do something that will inevitably take money directly out of your pocket, and minimize your edge as a DFS player?

    I’ve been doing Grinders Live five days a week right before lineups lock for two years. I’m still winning GPP’s and qualifying for the live events I want to go to. I think you’re overestimating the negative effect while at the same time not knowing what my personal goals are regarding DFS.

    Money comes and goes, but banners fly forever.

    Hopefully Boston is on the list Huge DFS population here especially with headquarters of DK here you can get some people from there to go as speakers

    We are going to expand both the number of camps we have for NFL and NBA as well as branch out to new cities that we feel can fill the camps. Boston is on the short list as well as many of the other cities mentioned in the first 5 pages of this thread.

    This is only your perspective though, Al. The coaches that you employ might think differently.

    The speakers who have agreed to appear are also content providers on Rotogrinders as well as other sites. I think you’d agree that with a quick look at the list of presenters they’ve been able to continue win as well while having been providing content, strategy, cheat sheets, etc on a daily basis.

    I didn’t have to twist anyone’s arms to present at these camps, they’re all very excited to do so. If you don’t believe me, ask them yourself, I’m sure they’ll echo my sentiment.

    Nashville is a looking likely for NFL season, though plans aren’t fully finalized yet. As Al mentioned, this is just the first-wave of cities. Al will be announcing more in the future for NFL season.

    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.

    Really liked how you put that. I would like a way to customize projections somehow via a site’s database. I don’t have the time to create it myself.

    Daily Fantasy Bootcamp is not an affiliate site. We are a premium content provider both in terms of live events we produce as well as the videos from those live events & projections for our subscribers.

    Chicago attracted people from all over. It will be on the list in the future because it covers so much of that surrounding area.
