TABLE OF CONTENTS

I. THE INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER TO MY BOOK

There’s not much that’s useful in this chapter. I feel bad even calling it a ‘chapter,’ to be honest. If this were a meal, this section wouldn’t even be an appetizer. It would be like maybe some bread that’s been sitting in the back that they bring out to everyone. But not really good bread with olive oil and stuff—just like hard, stale bread that you take one bite out of and then set down and then maybe give another chance later in the meal to soak up the sauce from your linguine because you think maybe you were too harsh on the bread earlier, but you realize it’s even worse than you thought because you were really hungry when you sat down and it still tasted really shitty.

I guess I’m saying I’d probably just skip it if I were you.

 

II. MY APPROACH TO DAILY FANTASY FOOTBALL SPORTS

This is the appetizer, and the appetizer can sometimes be the best part of a meal. In this chapter, I discuss broad daily fantasy strategy that becomes the foundation from which you can apply data found later in the book. This includes:

– Employing a contrarian approach to DFS
– Using game theory in daily fantasy sports
– Exploiting public psychology
– Developing an “antifragile” game plan
– Probability and visualizing ranges of outcomes
– Harnessing correlational effects in the NFL

III. INTO THE LAB: TESTING DAILY FANTASY FOOTBALL STRATEGIES

Working with our tools at Fantasy Labs, I examine historical pricing and performance data to determine how to best construct daily fantasy football lineups. You’ll learn:

– Whether or not streaky play exists and can predict success
– How much Vegas lines matter for each position
– How player/position consistency should alter your strategy
– When to be price-sensitive
– How to account for the impact of division games

 

IV. A NUMBERS GAME: THE DATA ON WHAT’S REALLY WINNING LEAGUES

Utilizing data from DraftKings, I examine which strategies are the most profitable in daily fantasy football, including:

– Which positions to use in the flex based on the league
– How the most successful players allocate their cap space
– How ownership affects GPP success
– If you should stack teammates in cash games
– The average scores needed to cash in each league type

V. THE ULTIMATE LIST OF DAILY FANTASY HEURISTICS

A long list of general daily fantasy heuristics, generated using research and data from the book
