    Hey everyone! My name is Saahil Sud, and I’m currently #1 in RotoGrinders.com’s Grinder rankings and am first in the current TPOY leader board. I previously operated under the screen name MaxDalury but changed that on all sites on 2/1/16 to SaahilSud. I am one of the founders of the DFS strategy and content site rotoql – Rotogrinders reached out to me and I’m going to spend some time this week answering DFS strategy and multi-entry questions.

    If you want to know a little more about me here are some interviews that I’ve conducted in the past:

    DKWC Video Interview

    Daily Fantasy Fix Interview

    wbur.org Interview

    MODERATION NOTE

    Saahil is one of the highest volume players in the DFS industry and has been gracious enough to accept our invitation to answer questions from RotoGrinders users over the course of this week. We want to keep this positive. Strategy and multi entry questions are welcome. To prevent this thread from becoming negative we are not allowing questions on scripting. All forum rules apply and this thread will be moderated to ensure that the thread moves along in a smooth and friendly manner.

    Thanks Saahil for your time. Everyone seems to complain that it is harder and harder to make money playing DFS, but hardly ever adjust their strategy.

    I know that each slate is different, but I wonder if you have kept your general GPP strategy identical in the last few months, and if so if you have seen a decrease in your RoI (without telling me exact figures)?

    Can you please do a video interview with @xBenJamminx on Twitter?? He’s done some great interviews with people, including RGs own Dave Potts, and we would LOVE to hear a little more about you and whatever you’re willing to share about DFS!

    What would be your advice to low volume volume players who are playing $5-$10 worth of entries a day?

    How come you are in every $3-$25 satellite I also enter? Aka how can I improve my game selection?

  • Number5

    This is your first year (I think) playing DFS MLB and you are killing it. To what do you attribute this amazing run? Are you doing something differently than other MLB grinders?

    How do you determine the number of lineups you play a day or do you just play the same amount a day on a normal slate?

    Hey Saahil – thanks again for taking the time to do this.

    We’ve had some good discussion regarding GPP Mass Entry Optimal Strategy in this thread:

    https://rotogrinders.com/threads/gpp-mass-entry-optimal-strategy-1321782

    I’m interested in your take on the OP’s questions – what do you think the optimal strategy for Mass Entry is? How do you go about accomplishing that on a daily basis? What kind of factors determine what you do or don’t do when it comes to lineup construction when you are making so many lineups?

    what made you decide you wanted to become a full time dfs player?

    What tools/software packages do you use, in terms of research/analytics?

    I am primarily an Excel guy, and have been able to get around the file-size constraints using a few add-on packages, but I have been told I could be much more successful using r or Python.

  • glennantz

    For MLB what do you consider to be the most important stat’s that you would use to make just one lineup for GPP’s and cash each?

  • Cobra_Kai

    If maximum entries were capped to 3 on all large GPPs, do you think you would still realize similar success?

    Did you ever have more than $200k in play on a single night?

    How many nights do you have more than $50k in play? 10%? 50%?

    It can be very stressful especially on losing streaks. Think it requires a certain type of demeanor to be able to be a high stakes pro

  • TomCats83

    What is your success rate in Single Entry tournys vs Multi Entry tournys?

    Which do you prefer and why?

  • myb821

    Do you have a set plan for each night? Do you pick SP based on the stack you want to use?

    I am constantly tweaking my GPP strategy my ROI has gone down from the beginning of the season but thats more of me running hot than anything else

    You’ll have better responses asking for advice if you ask more specific questions but at rotoql.com/university we have a bunch of videos talking about MLB strategy

    Focus on game selection and optimizing your lineup for the payout structure in GPPs – larger entry small entry fee double ups would be somewhere start
