There has been a lot of buzz surrounding DFS lately. The media has put this industry in their crosshairs, seemingly without doing much research or presenting equal representation from both sides of the argument. Sensationalist media types and self-interested power-ball pushing politicians have seized on the narrative and are doing everything in their power to equate the skill it takes to build a lineup to putting your chips on black.
There is no doubt that it is very difficult for an inexperienced player to enter a lineup into a contest and expect to do well. The truth is many of the people fail because they don’t know the right tools to use, or haven’t put in the time it takes to learn how to play seriously. So, for the people who want to learn how to play like a pro, we have created a new show called “Game Theory”.
Game Theory takes on a format very different from our normal daily shows. Our goal is to teach people how to think strategically about the day’s slate… helping them learn how to fish as opposed to just giving them the fish. Instead of analyzing each matchup or position, this show aims to focus on lineup construction techniques and how to apply them on a given night. The emphasis of this first show will be on helping NFL DFS players transition into the NBA. For guys, like me, who love the NFL and wish to carry on playing DFS beyond the football season, this show will be a perfect way to learn how to make the switch.
We are fortunate to have three perfect hosts to collaborate on this show with:
JMToWin is a professional writer and DFS analyst who has been making the transition into NBA himself, and he can share invaluable insight into the process.
Eddie Fear is a guy whose entire career has been built around game theory. He’s mastered everything from board games, video games, and game shows to DFS, and NBA is his strongest sport.
JeffElJefe is a DFS pro who is a seven-time live finalist in addition to currently being ranked in the top 100 in RotoGrinders’ TPOY standings.
These guys define what it takes to think outside of the box when approaching lineup construction and have been instrumental in designing a show that helps players step up their DFS games. On Wednesday, January 20th at 3:30 PM EST, they will share their knowledge with all of our viewers.
