I'm sitting here on a Sunday night following a rather "blah" WS Game 4. I found Game 3 much more interesting with its shifts, subs, strategy and general chaos on the base paths. I don't see the Rays coming back from 3-1.
The news flash of the day is that I exceeded my own expectations at fantasy sports. I managed to cash in 59 of 68 contests for a whopping +110.34% ROI. I was hoping to have a day like this for some time. I felt my strategy would pay off if I had a high scoring day. In spades, it did.
I managed to win the Chase contest, and improve on my high score. Three weeks to go.
I won my BFFB2 contest, but don't know just yet if I improved my position. Got 2nd in the SWDP contest, again waiting on overall standings.
I really don't consider myself a fantasy football expert. I certainly don't watch many games. But I will tell you this: I use a formula for picking my roster and I use a strategy for choosing my contests. There is NO intuition involved. I don't read souls.
So I'm a little stunned at my success this year.
But here's the real secret I haven't shared until now - I've spent the last six months working on a book about daily fantasy strategy. With 13 months of contests complete, I think I have a large enough sample to prove my strategies work.
However, each week I'm becoming more hesitant to publish my book. It will liven up a bunch of dead money. I'm not exactly sure if I would make more on the games or the book.
In summary, I killed it today. Not a bad way to make some cash on a lazy Sunday. ("Tim Horton's apple fritter mad crazy delicious!")
