    Recently I’ve started putting more thought into trying to win a GPP instead of not winning GPP’s. This can be a nice strategy thread for people that are also trying to start winning GPP’s too.

    One thing I like to do each night is pick one theme song on youtube and listen to it on repeat for 3-4 hours while I’m building lineups. I think it turns me into a maniac and that’s what you need to win a GPP. You need to be a maniac. Driven to the core of pure psychosis. You gotta feel the flow. That’s the key. I feel like a lot of guys just sit down and belch out “CHAD PINDER” or “ANTONIO BROWN” and then get mad they didn’t win a Million Dollars. No man. You got to get sick about this stuff. You’ve got to treat this like you’re a real athlete. Be the ball. You can’t just say Chad Pinder you’ve got to BE CHAD PINDER.

    Then most importantly I play the SAME SONG while I watch the games. You don’t want to watch the games listening to a different song than you built the lineups to or that’s completely sabotaging the mentality behind building those lineups.

    Like all day today I’m listening to “I dont know much, but I know I love you” on repeat. ALL DAY. My neighbors think I’m crazy. Ask me if I give a heck. I’m trying to win a Million Dollars and they’re trying to cook Hamburger Helper and feed their golden retriever. You got to make yourself go crazy man. Same song. ALL DAY. That’s the only way to drive yourself completely insane enough to start visualizing the winning lineup that night. By Hour #3 you’re sitting there singing along and blending DFS with the Music.

    Aaron Neville’s looking deep into Linda Rondstadt’s eyes

    Look at this Slate, I know which game ESPN Is showing,
    Listen to Kevin Roth’s weather report, to find out which way the winds are blowing,

    I don’t know much, but I’m fading Kershaw,
    And that may be all I need to know.

    Then by nightfall I fully expect Linda Rondstadt sweet voice to start morphing into

    Look at these prizes, I’ve never won one that matters.
    Look at these lineups, So Broken and so Battered.

    I don’t much, but I know I love Rotogrinders.

    And that may be All there is to know…

    Okay, whose everyone like in the TCU vs SMU college football showdown slate tonight? Is this like a Tracy Chapman “Fast Car” slate? Or more like a “Mr Jones and Me” Counting Crows type a deal?

    Pairing your musical psychosis strategy with DaBum’s Newport 100’s strategy, I’m sure to win LOL

  • Trappist1

    Yes, DaBum’s Newport strategy is novel. Now all I need is to pair with mtdurham innovation with music and visualization. I can not wait for Sunday’s NFL slate and I can see myself sitting at the top of the tree counting the $$$.

    I lost $58 tonight. SCREW YOU AARON NEVILLE!!!

    Holy heck Gaelic Girl…..Garbage really re-invented themselves….

    If you’re gonna go the Garbage route though I cant wait to test out “Im only Happy when It rains” That song has direct DFS applications written ALL over it

    POUR SOME MISERY DOWN ON ME

    (IM ONLY HAPPY WHEN IT RAINS!)

    POUR SOME MISERY DOWN ON ME

    (IM ONLY HAPPY WHEN IT RAINS!)

    Just look at that music video!!!

    THe skirt/makeup job/and 90s power riff is the stuff a teenage boy in an abandoned treehouse dreams of. This is DFSGPP winning music if I’ve ever heard it.

    The world is a crazy place. Throw that lady in a CVS drug store buying a nail file and Calcium supplements and no one in line would look at her twice. But put her in a music video with a handsaw, a Johnny Depp look alike, a decrepit building, and a bathroom that needs it’s floor re-tiled….. and honestly man… I can’t stop thinking about her.

    Seriously.

    IM ONLY HAPPY WHEN IT RAINS

    (pour some misery down on me)

    (pour some misery down on me)

    It’s freaking catchy man. And I absolutely would not be surprised if I win a GPP tomorrow night with it on repeat.

    Also the way they put “Copyright 1996” at the end of the video is hilarious. That’s back before mass pirating was a given and some people in this world used to actually be scared of being arrested and fined $250,000 for stuff like that.

    We’re all chasing Fidelity in one form or another. That’s why I’m playing JuJu Smith Schuster in the Milly Maker in Week One… shhhh don’t tell anybody ;)

  • mtdurham

    I’m trying to totally block out all RotoGrinders recommendations and just focus on players whose names fit in a verse…. I feel like I’m close to winning a miilion dollars. Pure PSYCHOSIS. Accept nothing less.

    What’s REALLY sick is how close I was. You won’t believe how well Nelson Algoholar rhymes with “Vulgar” but he’s not on the Milly Maker slate this week so I can’t in good faith substitute his name into a lyric that feels practically made for him. That is a bad omen if I’ve ever seen one.

    I’ve been working all night trying to make a magical lineup for the Week 1 Milly Maker based on The (JuJu) Smiths “How Soon is Now”.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9EjE4qm7b8

    I am the son and the heir
    Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar (See what im talking about! Vulgar/Algoholar OH MAN!)
    I am the son and heir of Kareem Hunt in particular

    [Chorus]
    You shut your mouth
    How can you say I go about things about the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like Melvin Gordon.

    [Refrain]
    I am the son and the heir
    Of a shyness that sounds like Austin Ekeler.
    I am the son and heir of nothing in particular.

    [Chorus]
    You shut your mouth!
    How can you say I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like Duke Johnson…

    [Interlude]
    There’s a club, if you’d like to go
    You could meet somebody who really loves you
    So you go and you stand on your own
    And you leave Adrian Peterson.
    And you go home and you cry and you want to Joseph Addai (does he still play football?)

    When you say “it’s gonna happen now”
    When exactly do you mean?
    See I’ve already waited too long
    And now I’ve lost Chris Hogan

    [Chorus]
    You shut your mouth
    How can you say I go about things the wrong way?
    I am human and I need to be loved
    Just like Greg Olsen.

    (SERIOUSLY THOUGH YOU GUYS SEE WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT THOUGH! GROSS, RIGHT?! How many players names rhyme so smoothly with VULGAR?! I’m going to go puke now there’s no way i win a million dollars now with that kind of tomfoolery going on)

    Country music should never be used to psych yourself up, if anything it will have the opposite effect – you’ll end up losing your wife, your truck, your dog, or your DFS contests. Even the title, “I Don’t Know Much,” was an obvious non-starter.

    Once again, I feel this song will not produce the results you’re looking for. Is “pour some misery down on me” really the message you want to drill into your subconscious while drafting LUs? I think not. Love the song, and Garbage’s catalog in general, but that would be like me choosing “Stupid Girl.” Wrong message, wrong vibe, my friend.

    Take this, brother, may it serve you well.

    Upbeat, classic.
