    Anyone else having problems taking risks with GPPs? My lineups are borderline cash lineups, but the picks I usually choose that I feel are “risky” are still 40+ % owned. And the the players in the winning lineups are usually the ones I have looked at and done the research to see he has upside, but not enough to hit my 350 goal. However I’ve cashed in 80% of my GPP entries just at or above the cash line, so I’m doing something right. How do I “re-route” my brain to ignore the numbers and choose those risky plays?

    With the results you quoted, I don’t think anything’s wrong. What you are doing is more viable and a better long term strategy than throwing darts…You still could hit big one of these days and you aren’t hemorrhaging money in the meantime.

    That said, I’ve sometimes felt like I’ve had the same problem and what I’ve had to do to rewire is to either play more entries – so play what I normally would but add a couple specifically to play the guys I was passing on…and/or to play in cheaper GPP’s. I don’t have a lot of money to waste. So for me the higher the cost of entry the more conservative I’d tend to be. I found if I played more entries at a cheaper price point I could take more chances and not get upset or anxious about it. Not sure if either of those correlate to your mental block, but figured I’d share just in case.

    If you’re cashing 80% of your entries I would like to congratulate you on being the best DFS player to ever exist.

    I had to reread that numerous times. I’m thinking he means that 80% of his cashes are minimum cashes. If he really cashes 80% of the time he should start his own training site.

    Yeah I didn’t get that either when I read it last night. I guess I just assumed it was a Very small sample size.

    Could be wrong but if I had to guess, I think he means when his player pool hits, 80% are in money but none are close to the top .01% needed for big hit.

    Makes sense to have 80% hit on a given night if you play a small player core that all hit. HIGHLY DOUBT it’s 80% over course of season.
