    Best cash game players probably only win around 60% of the time so if you want to be able to profit $200+ a week playing cash games your going to have to play $200-$300 per day and try to win double ups at a 55%+ rate.

    However winning at a 55% rate is tough so you might have to move up to play even more. For me I play about $50 worth of double ups every day for the entire season and have just over a 53% win rate for this season so I would need to play $400-$500 per day and maintain the same win rate to expect a $200 weekly return.

    Buy you really need to have good bankroll management to be able to withstand a losing streak so if you plan to play $300 per day your bankroll should be $3000+ At a minimum to start. Of course only 10-15% of all DFS players are profitable so there is a chance you won’t hit a 50%+ win rate so only gamble a bankroll you could afford to lose if things don’t go well.

    You are asking the wrong question. Should be focused on lineup building process and game selection and not the monetary end results.

    Play the beginner/experienced players excluded games as much as possible. Also play the $5 games or lower where the highest volume pros are excluded. That will help the most. bigez952 calculations are basically right. You’ll be paying around 10% rake at that level. Breaking even against the rake requires around a 55% win rate. Realistically you’ll want to win between 55% and 60%. A win rate in that range will get you an ROI of around 5%. So working backwards +$200 per week would require $4,000 in weekly volume or around $570 per day. Seems reasonable to be honest, just have to ya know actually win at those rates which is easier said than done.

    @sochoice thank you for the reply back but the question i asked was what i wanted to ask. I understand lineup construction and process over results thanks for the input tho.
