When I started in DFS I just picked players from teams I liked and thought that I knew. I became quickly aware that being a fan did not mean I was going to pick winners. In short I have learned to do research and by that I mean that I look at stats and read articles check team news and weather reports and try to read what other successful DFS’rs do to win.
One of my frustrations was that many of my questions could not be answered and so sometimes when I would hear terms I was not sure what they meant I was embarrassed to ask, ‘hey what does overlay mean’? or ‘what does chalk mean’? An edge is what you are looking for and what you will ultimately want win consistently at DFS. I will try to post as much content and links as I can when I find good stuff.
