Hey everyone, I started playing daily fantasy for my first time ever during opening week of baseball this season and I loved it instantly.I also had a lot of success that first week as I pulled in over 500$ from a 25$ deposit.
My 2nd day I scored a 155 on dk and took 1st in two different smaller Gpp’s and won 300$ and won another 200$ over the next 3 days. I thought I was on my way to making easy money and maybe making a living off this but boy was I wrong.Things went from good to bad fast and I began to research day and night to see what I could do better and improve my scores and win more.I now look at all the stats BvsP woba L vs R home away splits Vegas odds and much more but still losing daily.
Then last weekend I decided to play only Gpp’s and also stack teams.I stacked the giants when they played the Reds and I was winning over 1,600 for most of the night until the last hour.I ended up with 50$ and stacked a few teams on Saturday and Sunday and was up about 100$ over the weekend so I thought I was again on my way to winning big. So last Monday I started making about 15 lineups a day that were mostly 6 man stacks and a few 4-2-2 or some sort of mix and I agin I have failed this week and have become so frustrated that I have started to wonder if I should play at all.
I am actually in a situation right now where I am able to spend all day on my research and lineup building just like a pro would which is why it is even more frustrating that I can’t win.I really would love to be able to do this for a living or even work in the dfs industry in some form or another because I love sports and I have all the time in the world to put into it right now.
So I was hoping for feedback or suggestions from long time players or even some pros that have had some success in dfs on what I am doing wrong or what I can change to at least be even a little profitable.I am a big baseball and football fan so I know those sports a lot but not basketball or hockey so much.Thank you all for any feedback
