    Hey there everyone. I’ve lost every night this season so far.

    I study all day. Advanced metrics. I have the NHL package offered here. My lineups in cash all seem solid, then they all flop to hell.

    Are you guys doing 2 man stacks in cash?

    I tend to play the $2 “BIG” double ups (5-7 entries) plus 2-4 entries on the $3 breakaway.

    I’ve min cashed a few times in the GPP’s but overall loser for the night.

    That NHL package is cool and all but I’d like to go a little broader. Is stacking the answer even in cash? Like a 2/2/2/ stack?

    I’ve been studying that package and other stuff online and theyre saying stacking is not a good idea in cash. Not stacking has cost me every single night though…

    GPP’s I get. Tough to win those out of the thousands of entrants, but cash should be more steady…

    Any ideas?

    EDIT: I’m a hockey fanatic. I watch mulitple games nightly. Been playing for years in adult league. I understand the game very well. Which boggles my mind even more that I can’t cash in this shit!

    Example of tonights cash lineup 10/22 ( I experimented with stacking tonight, as NOT stacking was killing me)

    Spezza
    Staal (MIN)
    Benn
    Toffoli
    Bobby Ryan
    Hoffman
    Werenski
    Ghost (killed it tonight)
    Martin Jones (lost, still got a decent score)

    I will say that Re: large GPP’s…. Don’t waste your time if you aren’t putting in multiple lineups.

    Lower bankroll players should stick to single entry/3 entry max tourneys. It’s unfortunate, but it’s true.

    That said, it’d be nice to see someone’s method for mass entering gpp’s as far as how many lineups get a certain stack. Making good picks is all good and fine but if your game theory isn’t right on par with your picks you’re screwed.

    oops. I repeated myself too many times. I agree

    I would continually review all your lineups, not just once but multiple times. There may be something you are not seeing right now that could jump out at you later and help going forward. That has helped me in football.

    Is the coaching in English?

    Any of 9 languages

    In a bit of a slump myself. Think I should take 2 weeks off and then quit.

    I’m not really sure how to address this.

    If one’s process is bad, it shouldn’t be trusted…..

    You’re not trusting the process. I’ve played you many times. You’re easy to take down in heads up.

    On the actual topic, I would encourage anyone here to make use of the DFS analyzer on RG.

    Take a look at where your success(or if things are really dark, look where you have less failure) happens. There’s a lot to learn from that data and it’s incredibly easy to use.

    Thank you @goldengoat29. Great post!

    I actually have been doing well this week. Cashed 4 out of 5 nights in cash. Still chasing a top 10 in tournaments but with only one entry it’s a lost cause huh?

    Should I stick to cash games then and just drop an entry into the $1 single entry?

    That top prize in the breakaway looks so tempting (and I do play a line up every night in it) but with people putting countless combinations in, it really is impossible to win with just one lineup huh?

    My first “big hit” was a single bullet on Fanduel. Immediately opened a DK account. My first big GPP win was in early November last year in a tourney that I only entered 5 lineups because that was all I had in my account. Now I’m a degenerate. Sooooo…..maybe it’s best that you don’t win a GPP.

    not impossible to win with one entry, just more difficult of course. in a sense, the one entry has as good as chance as every other entry.

    You are the ultimate troll.

    One thing I stopped doing was player the MME tournaments. I only play single entry or the 3-Max. Also moved to play 3-5-10 man events.

    I only build 1 GPP lineup and 1 cash lineup. Sometimes the cash lineup is better. I stack the GPP and I put the best plays in the cash. Sometimes their is a stack. One thing I’ve found is 3 D does work.

    Contest selection is almost as important as roster construction. Also pay attention to who younger entering against. I stay away from guys who I’ve seen at the top of the leaderboards.
