Ted and Mans and Ben and other experts,
Not trying to be nasty, but just trying to discuss things a bit. I work 40+ hours a week, so I don't have time to do nearly as much research as I would like, that's why I subscribe to the site. I'm hoping your site gives me an advantage, that's why I pay the $20 a month. I'm also a nerd, so I do have an excel spreadsheet, and I'll take your Optimal Lineups and GPP lineups and plug them into a spreadsheet, try to basically get lineups that look like they'll get around 300 points. But, and correct me if I'm wrong, I lost all my cash lineups last night, and I've lost the last 4-5 times I've played FA lineups (I haven't played everyday, I ran out of money on FD and had to put in another $200). Now, sometimes I just use your straight up Optimal Lineup, because I look at the situations, and I generally agree, and I can see the "upside" in the lineups. And I've been losing alot, again, I just ran out of bankroll and had to re-up. Sometimes I'll change out 1 or two players, but it doesn't usually matter, I'm still losing.
My question is, is the general FD population of players catching up, because using your "expert" lineups, I'm still losing more often than not to more than 50% of the field. Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't there a million "fantasy expert" sites out there? Is Fantasy Guru, or Fantasy Elite, or Fantasy This or That putting out better lineups that others in the field are using? Am I just being really unlucky, did the cash lineups cash all the nights I haven't played because I'm trying to not run out of bankroll?
Last night, I believe the paylines were ridiculously high, or were they? Are the paylines constantly going up? Is the whole FD field getting better, is everyone using an "expert" lineup that they pay for, like me? Again, I know you guys don't guarantee anything, I it's up to me to submit my lineup, but my thought process has either been "use your exact Optimal Lineup cause I generally agree that it looks good", or "swap out a player her or there and I lose anyway".
I'm just wondering what your thoughts are. I do listen to you an Mans quite a bit, and I enjoy listening to you guys, but I'm just wondering if I'm the only one still losing more often than not with your lineups, am I just playing the "losing nights". I think I've played and lost on the 19th, 12th, 9th, 8th, the last time I won was on the 7th. So yeah, let me know your thoughts if you would, I'm just trying to keep my bankroll going. I using put over 90% of my entry fees in 50/50, then I play the single entry, 1 and 2 dollar tournaments, just hoping I might strike gold, but I'm losing my bankroll.
Any help with getting my payroll to go in the other direction would be greatly appreciated!
Or any other players have thoughts or in a similar predicament? I'm just a guy, working way too much, but loves playing this daily game and I don't want to keep losing money in this economy!!
