NFL Beyond Basics
Daily fantasy football strategy
This article covers suggested GPP plays as well as advanced game theory you can take advantage of on DraftKings. Let’s get right to it! Take it for what it’s worth, but I think it takes a certain type of person to really enjoy GPPs, especially in NFL. If you’re like most of us, you do loads of research and get in all the value plays just to have random Matt Ryan and Julio Jones basically set NFL records. It’s also easy to fade all the chalk and get too fancy, and here’s an example of where I blundered last week.
This article focuses primarily on DraftKings week 4 strategy, but should provide valuable content for players on all sites. Week 3 went about as expected, as the Kansas City defense put up a casual 35 points, Terrelle Pryor went trifecta QB/RB/WR on us, and DeAngelo Williams once again proved that “no one is safe”. Someone also apparently finished 6th in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker with Austin Seferian-Jenkins on his roster. Moving on.
This article is focused primarily on game theory involving late swapping and applies to all sports and sites that allow for late swaps, with a bit of NFL content as well. With baseball winding down and with most people transitioning to NFL and soon to NBA (yay!), it’s time to address a major leak that a lot of casual players have that can cost them big in cash games and GPPs.
