Jonathan is the author of the Fantasy Football for Smart People book series (most recently “Daily Fantasy Pros Reveal Their Money-Making Secrets”), and a member of Team DraftKings. In my latest book on daily fantasy sports, I interviewed some of the game’s top players to learn how they’re so profitable playing daily fantasy sports on DraftKings. One of those players was a really smart guy named Mirage88, a.k.a. A.J. Bessette. He’s actually written some ridiculously awesome articles here at RotoViz on how to use Monte Carlo simulations to win best ball leagues. Mirage88 (if you think I’m going to continue to refer to a grown man with his real name, you’re sorely mistaken) is a big proponent of using the Vegas lines to create daily fantasy lineups, and I spoke with him about how he does that. First, he discussed why the Vegas lines can be trusted.
