  • This morning I heard on the radio about someone who won $490,000 playing fantasy football. It was a commercial and I can't remember who it was for but hard to believe. Real or fake?

  36. 36. Daily Fantasy Tips & Best Practices
  37. 37. Do Your Research • QBs, RBs & WRs generally score the most points (in that order) http://www.doubleup.com/
  38. 38. • QBs, RBs & WRs generally score the most points (in that order) • Know the matchup: • Opposing defense? Playing at home or away? • Any injuries? Do Your Research http://www.doubleup.com/
  39. 39. • QBs, RBs & WRs generally score the most points (in that order) • Know the matchup: • Opposing defense? Playing at home or away? • Any injuries? • Know the scoring: • Points per reception (PPR) or standard? • 6 points for passing TD or 4 points? Other differences? Do Your Research http://www.doubleup.com/
  40. 40. • Look for undervalued players: • Seek value: highest points/salary ratio • Try to save on QBs & WRs, splurge on RBs Do Your Research http://www.doubleup.com/
  41. 41. • Look for undervalued players: • Seek value: highest points/salary ratio • Try to save on QBs & WRs, splurge on RBs • Try different sites to find hidden value in player salaries -- not all are the same Do Your Research http://www.doubleup.com/
  42. 42. • “Deposit Bonus” = money sites will give you for depositing on their site • Look for a 100% bonus or more • Not immediately usable, but it generally becomes usable at around 4% of play • e.g., after a $100 buyin, $4 of bonus cash is released Seek Out Promotions http://www.doubleup.com/
  43. 43. • “Freerolls” = free entry into game with a cash prize • Great way to test a site for free • Can be a way to build up a “bankroll” (a balance on the site) without risking cash Seek Out Promotions http://www.doubleup.com/
  44. 44. • “Overlay” = extra cash in a prize pool when a contest is guaranteed • e.g., DoubleUp guarantees that a contest will have a $100 prize, and the entry is $10 • If only 5 players enter, there’s only $50 in the pot: extra $50 = “overlay” • Now you have a 1/5 chance of winning $100 instead of 1/10 chance Seek Out Promotions http://www.doubleup.com/
  45. 45. Play the Right Games • 50/50 games: The top half of the player pool will win a cash prize of almost 2x • e.g., 10 entries with a $5 buyin each, but the top 5 players win $9 each • 5 winners instead of just 1 • These are your “bread & butter” -- build up winnings slow and steady http://www.doubleup.com/
  46. 46. • Head to Heads: just you and one other DFS player • High chance of winning if the player is new • Beware sharks on the bigger sites -- check the leaderboards, avoid top players • Try head to heads on smaller sites for a better chance to win Play the Right Games http://www.doubleup.com/
  47. 47. • Guaranteed prize pools (GPPs): • High chance of “overlay” • Tough competition on the bigger sites • Smaller sites more likely to have overlay + light competition (ideal combo) Play the Right Games http://www.doubleup.com/
  48. 48. • Large tournaments (e.g., FanDuel’s FFFC with $3 million in prizes) • Multiple rounds to get in • Toughest competition of top global players • This is your “lottery ticket” -- low chance of winning, but you get $1 million if you do! Play the Right Games http://www.doubleup.com/
  49. 49. Pro Tools • RotoWire.com - best place for up-to- date player news & injuries http://www.doubleup.com/
  50. 50. • RotoWire.com - best place for up-to- date player news & injuries • FantasyFootballNerd.com - free site with fantasy points projections for players each week Pro Tools http://www.doubleup.com/

  55. 55. Keep it Fun • Give it a shot -- it’s a lot easier than season-long fantasy http://www.doubleup.com/
  56. 56. • Give it a shot -- it’s a lot easier than season-long fantasy • If you don’t have the time, try the simpler games for casual fans: • Judgment Call & Matchup Battle at DoubleUp • Pick 5 at StarStreet, DraftDay • 30 seconds to enter, still lots of fun http://www.doubleup.com/ Keep it Fun
