I’m not sure what caused this thought to come to my mind, but I was thinking yesterday about 3 big components that I see in MLB:
- Skill (the ability to understand both the sport, and the game of DFS)
- Chance (the random occurrence of things that happen even though they may be unlikely)
- The ability to enter multiple lineups into a single contest
As I was thinking about these I was trying to determine how I would break each of them down in terms of their importance relative to having a successful day in MLB DFS. To do this I looked at the idea of success as a combination of percentages. With that, I ended my mental debate on this:
Ability to enter multiple lineups 35%
Part of me thinks the ability to enter multiple lineups is even more important than I have it listed, but I couldn’t determine what other aspect needed to be lowered. I’m curious to hear the thoughts of others, if for no other reason than to have some interesting debates.
FWIW, I viewed the ability to enter multiple lineups based on what I typically see on DK with a 20 entry limit. Obviously, some may view it differently if the cap is 150 lineups.
Have a great day everyone.
