100 Fantasy Football Tips in 100 Days, Day 100: How to Lose A Guy’s Money in 10 Days
I can’t believe this is the final day of this series. It feels like it started a decade ago. Thanks for joining me, especially when half of the day’s tips were me promoting my books and stuff. I won’t do that today.
So one of the cool things I’ll be doing at 4for4.com this season is using someone else’s money to hopefully make myself some. 4for4 owner Josh Moore is staking me a small amount of cash to use on some daily sites to see if I can build a bankroll. You can check out “Staking Bales” each week. Here’s the first installment.
Daily Fantasy Football Rule No. 1: Practice sound money management.
There’s no better way to manage your money than to use someone else’s. 4for4 owner Josh Moore has agreed to stake me two grand this year to play on four daily fantasy sites: FanDuel, DraftDay, DraftKings, and StarStreet. We decided to split up the funds so that we could jump on any and every potential +EV situation (positive expected value).
So since I’m using Josh’s money, I can basically be as reckless as possible because, honestly, who really cares if I lose it? Nothing but tournaments for me. In all seriousness, I’m going to use this “Staking Bales” series to 1) show you how to play optimal strategies in daily fantasy, 2) display proper money management, and 3) build a bankroll in a short period of time.
As we go through the season, I’m going to be as transparent as possible regarding my successes and failures. Here’s a spoiler alert: I’m going to lose money some weeks. It might be four weeks. It might be eight. The goal will obviously be to minimize those losses, but they will happen. It would be pretty lousy if I started a daily fantasy series and then went bankrupt in a few weeks, so I’ll really be making sure no stone goes unturned in order to maximize the probability of profitability.
