Does anyone think that season long leagues have a different kind of chance involved? If my 1st and 2nd and 3rd and 4th round picks go down with an injury, I’m pretty much scrambling and wrecked for the season. The injuries and problems last for a longer period of time. And this means that the chance affects it in a more heavy way. If one player gets hurt due to chance in DFS, I always have next week, or the next day! So chance is lighter and less involved in a way that determines my season long outcome for DFS, if I decided to play every time, all season. If we frame DFS as a season long sport with just more decisions along the way, then I see no argument holding water that traditional season long has less chance involved than daily. I think that chance weighs more in season long because you are stuck with some of those decisions in ways you are not with daily.
Of course, I’m not an exact scientist, but I welcome your thoughts.
