Fishing on a Bankroll – Week 2 Results

Fishing on a Bankroll – Week 2 Results

Charles Sears


Week 2 got me excited to play DFS and for this bankroll challenge. I am changing some rules to my bankroll challenge. I am not playing GPPs on Fanduel and playing more cash games. My DraftKings plays will change to all GPP lineups. These rule changes come from what I witnessed from a few mistakes I made.

The first change to playing all cash games on FanDuel comes from waiting on making lineups and the GPP tournaments filling up. I ended up playing 19 head-up, 2 3-person, 2 5-person, and 1 10-person tournament. I won 9 heads-up and a 5-person which netted me a loss of $3.30. The lineup scored 119.16 points. I lost 2 heads-up by less than a point and bubbled the money in all the multiplayer tournaments.  I would be rolling in the $1 bills if Jordy didn’t get hurt or I pivoted to Davante Adams. A huge improvement from the previous week’s lineup scoring a whopping 73.18 points. The lineup is at the bottom of this article.

The next change comes from the Flex position on DraftKings. I hear from experts that a cash game lineup should hit around 150 points. I didn’t come close to that score with a 108.34. Studying my lineups from the past two weeks, I have noticed that the flex position has been my weakest spot in my lineup.  It feels like this gives me a disadvantage in cash games. I am more comfortable with picking flex position in GPP tournaments. I only had 3 out of 20 lineups that cashed for $6.50, netting me a loss of $13.50.

The changes in the rules seems like a smart move. I noticed that all the non-GPP tournaments on FanDuel had more inexperienced players than experienced players. Softer fields gives me a better chance at winning.   Moving all my GPP plays to DraftKings seems better because I don’t have to worry about different pricing between the two sites.

I am looking forward to Sunday’s games and coming back with more wins. I’m feeling good, my mindset is positive, and I’m playing well. Good luck and let’s make this money.
