Im trying to understand something here. Because to me it just doesn’t make sense. Im not new to fantasy, lately I have had more time to invest in understanding the nuances of buildin lineups. But I am seeing what seems to me unexplainable but correct me if I am wrong.
Week after week so far in NFL, I am seeing top lineups that are winning huge DFS GPP’s with players who really are unusable. With that being said, my definition of unusable may be entirely different to someone else because lets face it, handicapping sports everyone is going to have an “opinion”
Tyler Kroft- expected to put up 0 points puts up 24.80(Drafted at 1.34%)
Now that is just one random example. But this consistently happens. Now I TOTALLY understand that in GPP’s you need a defining differentiating player to take down tournaments.
I just want to know what I am missing here because I have the balls to use low drafted players but only when they are projected to perform.
Is this just a case of someone having 100 entries in one contest and putting low drafted players in hoping they put points up and got lucky?
Are people using computer programs to generate lineups?
Does anyone hand build lineups?
I just want to decide if DFS is all about using a computer program to build lineups or is there any skill at all involved in this anymore. Seems to get harder and harder each season. Because Im sorry, I dont know how people are using some of these players that are picked. Sometimes you can read between the lines and other times you just have players who never perform. I just dont get it.
