    Hi Everyone,

    I’ve been playing NBA & NFL for the past 6-7 years and I’ve had some nice large scores in each of these sports; profitable overall. I was wondering in general how many sports you guys truly focus on in a year? I was thinking about expanding into PGA or MLB, but I wasn’t sure if I should take some attention away from my main sports where I’ve had success. Just FYI, I know nothing about golf or baseball but would be willing to learn. I do know a ton about tennis as I played my whole life, but the $ doesn’t seem like it’s there or the big payouts.

    Any insight or thoughts would be great. I appreciate your help.

    I personally play just about everything besides soccer. Overall I wouldn’t say there is a sport I’m “unsuccessful” in besides NBA (and that’s because I don’t want to put in all the work and wait up until lock). Well that’s not my only reason but you know how NBA is.

    If those are the 2 options you are expanding to, I would recommend PGA. Sure there are good DFS players like others sports but you don’t see the “domination” from guys you do in other sports. Golf also isn’t a “team” game so your results are determined by 6 individuals so only they can drag you down, not a full team. It is also a lot more random than other sports.

    The reason I didn’t say MLB is because I feel like you would have to “learn” a lot more and lineup construction is constantly evolving so it’s tough to pinpoint what to look for besides good pitchers and HRs. I think you will notice there are the guys that play every sport and can compete. Also adding PGA would be nice b/c it’s only 4 days a week and if you only play classic you have Thursday to set lineups and then you sweat for 4 days hopefully.

    Yes- avoid baseball. There are about 25 guys to fill 9 spots and they all get rest days in a long 162 game season.
    You have to stay on top of it until lock. Plus there are rainouts.

    Depends on a lot of factors: goals, risk tolerance, time, bankroll

    But I think its worth trying playing other sports. A lot of dfs comes down to game theory any way and having a good process. Between PGA and MLB, I think golf is easier speaking from someone who is new to both sports.

    Some of the sharpest DFS “touts” out there seem to have become successful by being dominant in the smaller sports.

    If you cleaned up in tennis you’d have the bankroll to expand into other sports and learn as you go.

    Having said that, you said you’‘re thinking of playing tennis DFS because you have had a lifetime of playing tennis. You might be an amazing tennis player – and maybe even a diehard tennis fan – but that has literally nothing to do with whether you’d succeed at tennis DFS.
