Diary of a DFS Novice: DraftKings Week 3 Recap
The importance of bankroll management – In my first post, I went into great detail about how much time was spent researching bankroll management and strategy. I didn’t even make it through Week 1 without deviating from that. In Week 2, I made it a goal to adhere to the process, and it paid off in Week 3.
Preparation time – The sharks talk about the importance of spending the time to do the research for your lineups. And in actuality, it’s not hard to spend the time, when it’s readily available. But what happens when life gets in the way, or your interest just isn’t there for a particular week? This was the case for me in Week 2, and the results showed it. Finding the time to prepare and do the research is just like a job – you may not want to do it, but you need to in order to be successful.I don’t want to speak for all beginners, but for me, it’s been tough to ‘trust the process.’ Week 2 was upsetting, and through three weeks I have yet to make a big cash in a GPP (this week, I had one entry bring in $90). But making drastic changes to things like money-in-play amount, or which contests to enter, would be an overreaction. So I hope that other beginners reading this come away with the advice that it’s about trusting the process that you carefully researched, all the while continuing to learn and get better with how you execute it.
