10 Ways to Become a Better Daily Fantasy Sports Player
1. Avoid Distractions and Procrastination
Playing daily fantasy sports requires superman or superwoman like focus when trying to take down 1st place in a gpp (guaranteed prize pool) tournament. So, doing your due diligence when it comes to being up to date on late breaking news on Twitter or whatever source you get your dfs information from is crucial. If for instance you have a player in your lineup who isn't starting and the game has already started, you are SOL! You will accrue zero fantasy points for any player you have in your lineup who isn't starting, so double checking or even triple checking your lineups would be a wise thing to do to ensure that the players you have in your lineups are indeed starting for that specific tournament that you are entered in. So, avoid the porn and the drugs when playing daily fantasy sports and you will have an advantage over those who can't seem to stop jacking off or popping pills, lol.
2. Set A Budget and Stick to It
Do NOT be greedy or obsessive compulsive when playing daily fantasy sports or else you will lose your fuggin ass off!! Chasing money is not how you win money, on the contrary that's exactly how you lose money! You must exercise discipline and self-control when wagering money on daily fantasy sports. For instance, there are free pools on DraftKings that you can enter for free and win a cool $10, $20, or even $100 just for entering those free pools. Then you can use some of that free money to cash out into your bank account and use the rest of that free money to enter gpp tournaments to win some big money at no cost to you! The most I have won so far playing daily fantasy sports is $2,000 on a $8.88 bet on a League of Legends tournament on FanDuel (as of this writing FanDuel no longer offers League of Legends on its site). I have also won between $200-$960 plenty of times playing daily fantasy sports in a single night just off of between $10-$20 invested. I will hit between $10,000-$1,000,000 in a single night real soon, just watch!
3. Overcome Your Biases
This is difficult as hell, and I have been playing daily fantasy sports for about 6 years now. Your biases will cost you and absolutely destroy you if you don't make an effort to overcome them. The best way to overcome your biases is to go against your gut! Wait... what did you just say??? Go against your gut??? Let me tell you something about listening to your gut, your gut lies to you, your gut is not always telling you the truth. Everybody knows to listen to their gut, and yet none of us are still perfect and neither is your gut! So, here's the trick on how to go against your gut effectively, are you ready??? You go against your gut by both listening to it and going against it! Huh???? Aren't you contradicting yourself there, Rafael??? Yes I am, and that's exactly what hedging is, it's essentially betting on this result and betting against it at the same time, so you're able to achieve the desired outcome of success! Even if the one bet fails, the other bet prevails, and more than makes up for the loss of the bet that failed! For example, the $2,000 that I won in that League of Legends tournament on FanDuel I placed a $4.44 bet for one lineup and then placed another $4.44 bet on a lineup that had the opposite team from the previous lineup! I essentially contradicted my gut on one lineup by going against it with another lineup that had the opposite team in it!! This is what hedging is all about, it's about not going all in on your gut, because your gut is not always right. Instead, hedging is all about both betting on your gut and betting against it at the same time! Who would've thought that contradicting yourself actually leads to success, because it does!! And that, ladies and gentlemen is how you overcome your foolish biases!!
4. Ignore the Naysayers and Jealous Ass Haters
"Respect your haters, they're the only ones who think you're better than them!" ~Nicki Minaj
5. Never Say Die
Never ever give up, because the truth is whether you believe in God or not, we are all still eternal! You cannot kill yourself, so just live courageously, no matter what! We all have an eternal soul and this life is just the beginning not the end! People say if there is such thing as a God why does God let all of these evil things happen to innocent children like what happened at Uvalde? Instead of blaming God, how about asking about the things we can do that God has already given us to prevent tragedies like that from happening in the first place instead of blaming God or politicians? Being an atheist or a religious person or even a politician has nothing to do with saving innocent lives at all!! So, with anything in life if you want to succeed you must never ever give up!!
6. Be Healthy
Health = wealth for a reason, because all the money in the world can't take care of your health for you, only you can do that!! If you have all the money in the world, but you don't have your health, then what good is all that money going to do for you? All the money in the world is not going to save you if you fatally overdose on drugs and alcohol or get cancer and HIV from having unsafe sex! HIV meds are NOT a cure!! That's why developing healthy habits now is the best investment you can ever make!! Prevention is the cure, not after the fact!! So, if you want to be wealthy, then you must first be healthy!!
7. Never Stop Learning
Life is all about living and learning. Always learning new things helps you to adapt and stay ahead of the game. You are never too old to learn new things. The choice is literally yours.
8. Be A Loving Friend
When you are a loving friend to people, it's irresistible! Love always wins, no matter what! When you're a genuine loving friend to people they will literally volunteer to help you out, love you back, and have your back! I have developed a loving friendship on Twitter with daily fantasy sports players who have made millions and they freely offer to give me a few strategies to get me to where they're at! Love is everything!!
9. Stay Humble
When you've finally made it and then you start to let your ego forget your humble beginnings, you will wreck and check your own arrogant and haughty ass and lose it all!! Always stay humble and never forget the people who helped you along the way! After all, the humble shall inherit the world!!
10. Stop Doubting and Just Believe
There is plenty of room at the table for you and me! Don't let doubt rob you of your life! The universe keeps on expanding and so should we keep on expanding with our lives! All things are possible to those who believe!! So, believe to achieve!!!
