Having the right resources for improvement is a must. If you can’t get better at daily fantasy sports, you will never be profitable. You will have a lot of fun, but you will always be missing out on something–winning money consistently makes playing fantasy sports much more enjoyable.
You should always start with the site that you are playing at. It makes sense as this is where you will be spending much of your time looking at roster choices, evaluating salary decisions, and so on, but your site will have current scoring point policies posted, and this is what should be the basis of every decision you make. This is where you can start making more informed decisions.
Next, go to the top stat websites for your sport. Yahoo Sports is great, as is ESPN. Depending on the sports you enjoy the fantasy side of the most, there are more specific sites that will help you. You can find these with a quick web search. Also, be aware of the fact that there are tons and tons of fantasy strategy websites out there, including daily fantasy sports sites. These can be helpful, but anyone can make a website. Just because there’s a site out there does not mean that it is of a high quality. Look for sites with a lot of traffic, lots of comments in the appropriate sections, and intelligent discussions. This means that the site has some proven value and could be helpful to you, too.
You are a resource
Remember that all of the awesome sites out on the web cannot win a tournament for you. You are the only one that can do that by applying the things that you’ve learned. There are a number of ways that this can be applied, and each person out there will find that different things work for them, but one good way that works for many is to keep a journal of ideas. It sounds like it’s dumb, but it really works. When you learn something new, write it down. You can use a document file on your computer or a paper and pen. It doesn’t matter. Write it down, test it out a few times (recording how you tested it), and then write down your results. This is such an easy thing and only takes a few minutes to do. But, what you will find is that either the new strategy works awesome and you’re winning every single tournament now (no adjustments needed), it doesn’t work at all (move on to something else), or it kind of works, but it needs some adjustments. Having a written record will help you to make those adjustments in a workable manner. You can learn from what works for you and what doesn’t. You might even find that you have a strategy that no one has ever used before.
Follow the news
This is a silly thing, but there are daily fantasy news sources. They might be geared toward a specific site, or the industry in general. The reason why you want industry news is to give you an alert when big events are coming up or there are special bonuses available. These should not be your primary focus, but they can help you to gain an edge in your profitability. If you’re going to be playing anyway, you might as well maximize your ability to make money off of it. Look to the bonuses that can pad out your bankroll a little bit, and find the tourneys that you have the best chance of finishing in a profitable position. The more you play, the more you will find that you succeed in certain types of situations, and these kinds of resources will help you figure that out a little faster.
