Those who don’t know the past are doomed to repeat it. One of the best ways to improve is to analyze what you’ve done previously. Large field tournaments that pay out a million dollars are quite sexy but the smart play for most DFS players are cash games (H2H’s, 50-50’s, Double Up’s). Cash games are the best way to build up your bankroll. Below is a look back at my cash game lineup from Week 14 in order to be better in Week 15. An accurate analysis can provide a foundation for future winnings.
This was the most straight-forward lineup construction of the year as far as I was concerned. Certainly, there were some decisions to be made but I tried not to overthink it. I was very confident going into Sunday’s games and ended up having my best cash-game score of the year with 183 DK points. The ironic thing was that my best GPP score of the day was only 139 so I definitely need to examine my GPP process a little bit. I played in 15 GPPs and cashed in exactly one as I took 60th in the Fantasy Edge Listener League with my cash game lineup. In H2H’s I won 90.9% of my matchups. What follows is my rationale for why I made the decisions that i did with my cash game lineup.
