First a little background on myself. I’ve been playing DFS daily for NBA, NFL and MLB for a little over 2 years and I have been profitable. I play primarily cash games because I have a better mind for the safety in players than the go big or go home approach. I was playing around $100 a night on both DK and FD, mostly in DU and 50/50s. I’ve dabbled in some tournaments but I realize that the likelihood of winning a large entry GPP is very low especially for someone that likes the chalk. About a month ago I decided to stop playing. Part of it was stress (I don’t think I am willing to have $200 in play a night), part of it was time around lock (I have 3 kids and 6-7 pm isn’t the time I want to be glued to my computer, I am willing to monitor news but not be consumed by the waiting) part of it was the increase in overlapping lineups (it seemed everyone was on the same players as me and one bad pick meant a losing night) and partly losing started feeling worse than winning felt good.
Having said all of that I still would like to play on some level. So what I am looking for are some suggestions on how to make this fun again. I am willing to have somewhere between $1 and $50 in play a night. Has anyone found themselves in a similar situation? What did you do? What would you do?
