By DKL Staff - 1 month ago in NFL News, NFL Winning Strategy

Let Our Expert Fantasy Pros Teach you a Winning Strategy for Fantasy Contests

Our #1 goal is to teach you strategies and techniques that Pros use to be successful in Daily Fantasy Sports contests. Our Pros will provide you with their professionally researched picks, but in order to be successful, you will need to follow our entire program – especially with regard to which lineups go with which contests. If at any time you need some advice or if you ever have any questions, please email us. We are eager to hear from you, and we are here to help you play like a pro, so you can start winning like a pro!

Step 1. Maintaining A Positive Bankroll

Everyone wants to win a million bucks. But let’s start with ensuring a positive bankroll first. Playing smart allows you to maintain a positive bankroll so that you can enter a few high risk/high reward tournaments without losing all of your money. Playing Daily Fantasy Sports can be a lot of fun if you’re not going broke chasing a large payout. Trust us, playing smart is more satisfying than trying to get lucky.

Step 2. The 80/20 Rule

We recommend our members follow the 80/20 rule; 80% of your entries should be in 50/50 contests and 20% should be tournaments. Beginners and more conservative players might be more comfortable at 90/10. The concept is simple – if the majority of your entries are in low risk/low reward contests, then you will have a really good chance of gradually increasing your bankroll. And, our Pros will give you an edge over the rest of the field. As you increase your bankroll you can enter more high risk/high reward contests and give yourself a chance at winning big without going broke. It’s a strategy that requires a little patience but it works.

Step 3. Entering the Right Contests

We offer two very different types of lineups for Showdown Thursday: a 50/50 lineup and a tournament lineup. Be sure you are using the correct lineups for the types of contest you enter. We have an article that better explains the types of contests. If there is any confusion or if you have any questions, just let us know. We’re always happy to hear from you.

Step 4. Diversify your Investments

Another good strategy is to participate in multiple contests. Playing five $5 contests exposes you to less risk than playing one $25 contest. Limiting your risks is key to maintaining a positive bankroll. Not every lineup you submit will win. Our Pros are the best in the business but there are no “sure things” in fantasy sports. By entering multiple contests, you give yourself a better chance of maintaining a winning average.

Step 5. Take Advantage of the Beginners Contests

Did you know that Daily Fantasy Sports has contests exclusively for beginners? Your first 50 contests on the site can be played with other beginners. We highly recommend new players enter these contests. The competition will be easier and it will give you a chance to get the hang of things. You can find these contests in the “Beginners” tab on the Daily Fantasy Sports website. If you have any questions or need any direction please let us know.
