I got into FanDuel as a natural fit since I have been involved in Fantasy Football for 15 +/- years. I figured Since I was pretty good at fantasyfootball then I could be just as good at Fanduel weekly fantasy.
Well, I did win the Championship at Yahoo.Fantasy Football since I have collected several tools that you cannot play accurate weekly fantasy football games without.
Let me show some of the tools I use and maybe a short explanation about how they can help.
First you have to know which teams are playing. You can get this scheduling information from NFL.com/schedules, USAToday.com/sports/nfl, ESPN.com/nfl/schedule or where-ever you visit for your sports updates.
Second you should check the spread, what the odds-makers are saying about which football team may win and which football team may lose and by how many points. ESPN/nfl/lines has a weekly consolidated list from oddsmakers around the web and is kept up-to-date throughout the entire season.
Once you know who is playing and have the Insiders ideas on who >they< think is going to win, it is time to get down to the business of picking the match-ups in the games that lean in the favor of individual players to be successful at the job they do.
NumberFire.com Week “??” Fantasy Football Projections
FantasyData.com is an unofficial and independent source of data
The above links are two websites that I use to get data on offense/defense and individual players and how the player matches up to the coming weeks opponent.
After all of that, I make my picks at FanDuel and try to win. It is difficult to get a solid win. Below I have a graph of my wins/losses over the last 16 weeks up to and including the Conference game between Denver and the Patriots.
As a matter of how difficult it can be to win the big money, in the AFC Championship game I was able to climb to the 529th place of 28735 positions or 98.16 percent! I won $10.00(USD)! In a 50K game you have to hit the top percent of the last 1 percent to get it.
