Arm yourself with the best intel
So you’ve won a few cash games, and now you’re hooked?
Consider signing up for some services to finesse those final lineups.
Daily Fantasy Café (dailyfantasycafe.com; subscriptions from $20/month) uses an algorithm to help fine-tune your rosters. Plug in a few specific players, and the site will jigsaw the final team together to maximize your points.
Pro DFS player Benny Ricciardi also suggests creating a DFS-specific Twitter handle where you can follow all the leading experts (his is @bennyr11).
One caveat, though: Don’t let DFS take away the joy of watching sports. “In some ways it’s changing the fan’s perspective, fraying the fabric of the game, making it all about statistics of certain star players,” Jackson says. “In the locker room, it’s an infantry mentality—not the name on the back of your jersey.”
Then again, it could be all about the number. Make mine $1 million.Back to top
