How to Profit in Daily Fantasy NASCAR – Part 3: Cash Game Strategy – Dominators
This is part three of a multi-part series intended to help both newcomers and veterans learn profitable Daily Fantasy NASCAR strategy. In this series Nick Giffen (@RotoDoc) teaches you everything you need to know to jump right into the sport and succeed. Nick holds a Ph.D. in mathematics, has won multiple NASCAR GPP tournaments, and is a two-time qualifier for the DraftKings NASCAR Main Event Live Final – the King of the Speedway.
Now that we know DFS NASCAR terminology and where to find relevant data, it’s time to jump in and play some contests! To start out, I recommend playing mostly formats that reward approximately half of the entrants. These are called cash games. A cash game can be anything from a field with a large number of entrants where about 50 percent of players double their money (called 50/50s or double-ups), or as small as a head-to-head (H2H) contest where two entrants square off against each other, with the player who scores the higher point total taking all the money (minus the rake). Let’s jump into the DFS NASCAR strategy for cash games by looking at the math behind them, and why race dominators matter in cash games.
