From there we can look out how players actually perform with their opportunity — how many points they actually score — and arrive at a player’s fantasy points over expectation (FPOE). FPOE turns out to be a catch-all efficiency metric that…...

50 Unique Lineups for the Week 3 Yahoo! $500K Baller Because … the New RotoViz

Back in the glory days of DFS when entries to the Millionaire Maker had no limit and people built lineups by hand, Fantasy Douche put out a series of articles giving away an outrageous number of unique lineup combinations — 2,509, 3,601, 5,860, 7,308 — culminating in 10,000 unique lineups and a plea for a place to sleep.
