    Just here to vent about how I’ve been running almost impossibly cold. I started to play a lot (for me) once football started in September 2016 ($50-100) per week. I’ve mainly focused on GPP’s so I know those are always tough and there are going to be highs and lows but never really profited more than about $100 in any given week, started giving basketball a shot in January once football was just about over and same story in those gpp’s everyday about $20-$50 a night and same profit story. Come baseball season been playing since Opening Day and same story. I’ve lost more than I’ve won but I’m not in a huge hole and just been hoping to have one big night to get me back on the positive ROI but it hasn’t happened yet. I guess since reading Dueling With Kings I’ve been trying to pull one of those but it hasn’t happened yet. It’s been fun listening to podcasts and reading all the different articles and forums on here with sharp guys but I haven’t been able to get a big win yet. I know this is part of DFS and to just make better lineups and all that but I just wanted to vent a little bit haha.

    I’ve been sticking to the small slates on MLB so far because I don’t have the time to research everything needed for the larger ones. I’m hoping to just kind of get to know each team a little more every day so that I can gradually have a better grasp on everyone. I don’t know if that will help you or not, or me yet lol, but that’s kind of the approach I am taking so far.

    It will happen if you do the research. 2 years ago I was going to cut down then hit 1st in a GPP for NBA.
    Once baseball started hit 1st and 2nd the next day in a GPP to get a good bank roll going. Just cut down and throughout the day tweek your line ups. You will need a few flyers to take it down.

    Keep that chin up and keep firing high-upside optimal lineups and things will eventually fall your way in the LONGEST of all conceivable LONG runs.

    stop doing this for a week (see below) … your own research..and then post back after the week is you would be surprised….

    looking at your results, seems like you are doing ok… unless you are making so many lineups, eating your profits…. also in dueling with kings, dude befriended and eventually received backing from pros….

    For these small NBA playoff slates, since there aren’t too many players to research, try to go “beneath” the projections and consensus plays a bit to find hidden value. Scrutinize chalk plays and “chalk fades” heavily before choosing to include or exclude a guy from your lineups, as these can make or break your evening. For example, having Westbrook last night (a chalk fade) pretty much ensured at least minimum cashing on DK. In Westbrook’s case, the logic for fading him was based on him busting in game 1 from a points per dollar perspective — a classic case of recency bias. JMTC.
