One of the biggest struggles when you get into DFS is learning how to think, specifically when creating lineups for your large tournaments or grand prize pools (GPP). You have to learn how to fill out a viable starting lineup of players that you feel have the potential to return value above and beyond their lineup cost, but at the same time you have must be cognizant of the uniqueness of your selections. If 90% of the field is rolling out Derrick Henry at running back then you have little chance of winning with him even if he does end up being the top scoring RB that week.

Going through my annual period of three weeks of caring about college basketball[1] also known as March Madness, I found that there are a great number of similarities between a bracket challenge and a large GPP tournament.

In this exercise, I’ll go help you make those last minute changes to crush your NCAA bracket challenges, and we’ll explore how the process of improving your bracket can also bolster your NFL DFS skills this fall.
