DFS Roundtable: Tips for Beginners

Beginner DFS Tips from 12 Footballguys Staffers

What's your biggest piece of advice for someone new to DFS?

Justin Bonnema: Don't get blinded by the get-rich-quick lure of GPPs. Everyone wants to win a million dollars, but your odds of taking first place in a tournament with 300,000 to 600,000 entries are incredibly low. That's not to say you shouldn't play in these tournaments; they can be a blast. But don't make them the basis of your strategy. Targeting big paydays is a quick path to blowing your bankroll.

John Lee: It sounds self-promoting, but read our staff's e-books on DFS: Cracking FanDuel and Cracking DraftKings. Both were intensively written by our expansive staff of football experts who specialize in DFS. They are very detailed and will give a new DFS player all the tools he/she will need to be profitable over the course of the NFL season. If these books existed when I started playing back in 2012, I could have avoided a very large learning curve and started making money a lot sooner than I did.
