    I plan on making my first 4 figure deposit on fanduel. I am thinking about playing 5% a day. I can’t afford to lose this. So what suggestions as far as game type etc should I be playing to almost guarantee 6 figures is sitting in my account come this time next year? Assuming I have an edge? I know we have a lot of threads for guys with 50 dollars and less bankrolls. But what about 1k?

    Its a virtual guarantee that NO ONE could run 1k into 100,000K without getting SUPER lucky in a GPP, even if they were the highest skilled professional conceivable.

    Chasing 100K with a 1K roll is recipe for DISASTER if your goal is to get there in one year.

    in reality even if you had a 20K bank roll I think an 80K net profit is pretty out there. It doesn’t sound like OP has an idea of whether or not they are even an above average player.

    What is your DFS experience thus far?

    I’ve been playing on and off since draftstreet days. I’m fairly comfortable in my process of making lineups. It sounds like I need to start mass entering gpps though. Thinking about starting with the quarter arcade perhaps if switching to dk. Then moving up to 1 dollar and 3 dollar gpps. I will probably join fantasy cruncher to build lineups to enter the quarter arcade or 1 dollar gpps. My best finish is 24th in the quarter arcade out of 220k people. I’m not a noob by any means but i’m not a pro either. So i’m trying to take that next step to becoming a pro. I hear all the time to become a pro you need to bet more money than ive been doing which was 5 bucks in nba nhl nfl etc.50/50s. So with that in mind I thought I would deposit more and grind 50/50s. But if its true cash games are dead then i will switch to mass entering gpps.

    15% rake and a smarter population have made DFS much more difficult in just the past year or so.

    The game is much harder now so strict bankroll management is key. I personally don’t enjoy cash games but try and sprinkle in enough 50/50s to stay afloat and don’t play more than 5% in tournaments a night.

    There’s a pretty critical step that you’re missing here. Yes, if you want to do this for a living then you need to put in higher volume. The missing step is: prove you’re a winner. If you’re a losing player then increasing your bankroll isn’t going to suddenly turn you into a winner.

    At the end of your post you say, “if it’s true cash games are dead then i will switch to mass entering gpps.” This tells me that you haven’t quantified your results. Who cares if someone else says cash games are dead if you’ve got a positive ROI in them? Some people are better at GPP then they are at cash, others better at cash then they are at GPP. You shouldn’t care what anyone else says or thinks.

    If you wanna deposit 1k because you can afford to and you wanna see what it’d be like to play higher stakes, then that’s your prerogative. But if you’re serious about trying to do this full-time then spend the time to find out if you can actually hang before you just throw more money at it.

    So, you want to turn 1k into 100k in a year, right? Madoff… Madoff? Bernard Madoff? Oh for Christ’s sake, has anyone seen Bernie?

    This is too negative. People recoil and scoff at the 100k goal, but 1k to 10k in a year is very reasonable. Once you have 10k, you have new decisions to make. For now, get comfortable with multi-entering tournaments, and stick to the smaller ones. Don’t throw too much money into the mega-fields. Cash players are understandably bitter about their diminishing edge, but tournaments are a different animal.

    97% chance he cannot get to 10k in one year.

    Probably same odds,or worse,of gsw blowing a 3-1 lead,Yankees 3-0,etc.but those things never happened right?never say never.

    If you get the strategy portion right you could turn a grand into who knows how much.at least gpp wise.but it’s no secret that you need to spend money to make money

    Another negative guy… with an arbitrary percentage. Would you like to share your reasoning, or do you just like to act smug? My point was to encourage and support the OP, and without giving away “my secrets”, to let him know that if you play gpps the right way (it does take effort), 10xing your money in a year is entirely possible.

  • steelcitydozer

    Play sports you know , do your own research , make your own line ups before reading expert picks and advice. If you find info that you like from them, plug a few pivot plays from your picks ,don’t change your orginal line ups

    Here’s the issue, Possible != Plausible

    The problem with the original post is it is worded in such a way that it’s asking for a guarantee. I don’t think anyone here is worried about “giving away their secrets” he said flat out in the OP that he “can’t afford to lose this” and wants to make 99k in a year. In what world is that reasonable? If you gave the sharkiest shark 1k and said turn it into 100k I’d venture to say all of them would fail short of binking an enormous GPP.

    If my life depended on it this is how I would try to do it.

    Max enter the Daily Dollar ignore cash games.
    If you feel like you have a good feel after a month or so for what constitutes your “best lineup” continue with the max entering, but throw darts into the larger GPPs and small field tourneys/triple/Quintuple ups.

    When the roll is healthy enough begin max entering the sharpshooter/moonshot/fanduel equivalents. And pray that you bink one so you can rinse and repeat moving up to the larger entry fee GPPs.

    The bottom line I think everyone is trying to get at is Good luck because you’re going to need it anyways.

    You’ll need to do research as well, because you’re going to have to play sports that aren’t in your wheelhouse most likely. By all means if you know hockey and soccer try to gobble up as much action as you can. those are sports that I think you can still have a significant edge in cash.

    There is a summary of an answer that has been repeated a few times. Without taking down a large GPP, it’s not going to happen.

    Now if you want to turn 100k in to 1k, I know a guy.

  • icowpres

    Best of luck. You’ll need it in droves.

    If you’re looking to make shiploads of money, that ship has already sailed.

    You could turn it into way more than 100k three years ago. You can still do it today, but with the way things stand currently, you’d have better results taking a martingale approach to the powerball.

  • KindGuy

    Nice bump. How’s it going so far, OP?

  • dude_abides7

    @FantasyTime69 said...

    I can’t afford to lose this.

    Then I suggest you keep that money right where it is.

  • KindGuy

    I’m afraid OP hasn’t been doing to well….
