    How many of you would let “experts” in the DFS world make your lineups for you in exchange of them taking a cut of your winnings??

  • lionssuck

    You would have to have a huge bankroll to even think it would be viable. It’s hard enough as it is to beat the rake let alone somebody else taking a slice.

    The definition of “expert” needs defined because the more I endeavor to get better at DFS I’m realizing there are a good number of folks that lucked into a large win and have been using that to get them into the “expert” category.

    The touts in this business are no different than the ones from the sports books or selling a winning blackjack strategy.

    Now, if you’re talking about someone who is a proven consistent winner and only gets a percentage of overall profit then, yes. There would be no reason not to invest like that.

    I’m pretty sure the OP’s question was rhetorical. Otherwise, the goal should be to create your own lineups. That does not mean those of us who are not good at it should’t seek to learn how to do it. This is not an industry that lends itself to the haves teaching the have-nots, though.

    They are under no obligation to do so, it’s worth pointing out.

    There are those, like me, who find DFS very interesting and entertaining but simply aren’t any good at it. Without the ability to learn to get better those types will ultimately just move on to something else. Not that you should care about that, I’m just pointing out another point of view.

    Your only an expert when RG let’s you put a quip under your avatar. I’ve been trying to get them to put, “ 532 place for the month of July ranking” on mine for a while. No dice so far.

    If they are only taking a cut of the winnings (profit) and there is make up, I would do it in a heart beat. This would be in addition to my own play though. I play DFS for fun but I also don’t mind a good investment. If a good cash game player like Dean or Hoop offered me this deal I would take it right away.

    For example, John Doe works 50 hours a week. Doesnt have time to research for his upcoming tourney he qualified for. Instead he befriends someone who plays DFS for a living (his primary source of income) who agrees to build a lineup for him with 15% cut if lineup wins money.

    rake 10 to 13 percent
    taxes 25-38 percent
    expert 15 percent

    not much left is it

    I guess I’m dumbing it down too much, which I tend to do so I make it easy enough I can understand it.

    If the expert is taking 15% of the PROFIT then it’s a steal. I think you are handing him 15% off the top. In which case you are right, bad deal and pretty low ROI.

    My way settling up each month (with M/U would be best):

    Enter $25,000 in contests
    Cash for $27,500
    Rake is already accounted for in that scenario
    Taxes of 30% on winnings (I’m guessing) $750
    Leaves a profit of $1750
    I owe expert 15% of that $1750 or $262
    I made $1488 or 6% ROI

    I would certainly take that considering I can’t do it myself and the “expert” is a proven commodity.

    Totally on board with what AtGame7 is saying, I’d do this 100%
