FREE ARTICLE – @Tommy G shares his NFL DFS Strategy for Large Field GPP Selection. Come get that edge on the competition!
So those of you that followed my baseball analysis and play this year may have noticed you did not see me in any qualifiers and I had very limited large field GPP action, I spent most of my days lying in the mud with 3 mans & 5 mans and playing less DFS volume in MLB than in years past. The reason for the lack of qualifiers was mainly the payout structure. This year the Fanduel Live final was 495,000 to 1st, 290,000 to 2nd and 90,000 to 3rd. 7th place was like 20k or some shit. 54% of the prize pool went to the top 2 people and 67% went to the top 4! That is FUCKING DISGUSTING and not worth even entertaining, but the NFL ones are a bit of a better format, on top of having 10 top prizes of 6 and 7 figures (instead of 2), so I will be attacking them again. There were 2 main reasons why my DFS play was down during MLB:
- Gambling is now legal in NJ and I have been SLAUGHTERING the pitcher props and team totals and using them as a DFS supplement, not to say you shouldn’t play DFS, but we need to be more responsible with our play nowadays to make a profit (My next DFS article is going to be a “Sports Betting for DFS Players” article, and it will be the best one I have ever written! Stay tuned…). There are ways to use DFS and gambling to offset each other, but for those of you who are opposed to gambling or don’t have it legal in your state, I will walk you through which GPPs are the best to play below. One thing I was doing was parlaying pitcher props and team totals, which was basically like setting a DFS lineup without having to compete with anyone. So if I liked Giolito and the Astros stack, I could parlay Giolito over 6.5Ks with the Astros team total over 5.5 and I had a multiplier win if both hit, with ZERO CONCERN for ownership, who scored the runs or what any other team was doing. I was able to basically get paid as long as I hit my analysis without concern for the field. This was very profitable for myself and the subscribers and my next article will detail how to use this strategy in combination with ur DFS play.

- Large field GPP payouts got fucking ridiculous this baseball season where they were basically all or none tournaments with moronic payouts vs other people’s 150 lineups, so below we are going to attack which GPPs we should play and which ones we should avoid, in order to become more responsible players.
This football season I will go back to my usual thousands of dollars per slate in volume, BUT I am playing smarter this NFL season than in years past, and below I am giving you a guide to identifying the proper GPPs to play to leverage our skills for more consistent results.
Pictured below is an example of the biggest Week 3 NFL preseason GPP, and this will be the POSTER CHILD for what NOT to play…….
This is the type of shit that needs to be BANNED from DFS, and we need to start boycotting it. If you see ANY tournament where the min cash is not 2X the buy-in…BOYCOTT IT! If you see any GPP where first place is 5X 2nd place, BOYCOTT IT. If you see any GPP where first place is 50X 7th place, BOYCOTT IT!
Luckily, I wasn’t the only one throwing a shit fit this year and screaming at DK and even boycotting the GPPs, so it looks like early on their NFL structure is a lot more flat (outside of this ridiculous preseason one above)! Here is an example of a much better structure …The $9 NFL Slant.
Notice that first place is NOT 5X second place, nor is it 33% of the prize pool like the above example. First place is actually 10% of the prize pool, it is less than double second place, there are nice flat payouts, and the last cashing spot is 2X ur money! THIS is the type of tournament I can get behind, and you really need to analyze the GPPs to decide which ones you will enter, because the chances of banking 1st are always slim to none, so you wanna make sure if you do put up a miraculous score, but just miss the top, you can still walk away with a ton of money.
