2019 GPP Analysis – Part I

The allure of the Guaranteed Prize Pool (GPP) contests is the hope that with a small investment, a fantasy owner will have the opportunity to win a huge prize worth many multiples of the original entry fee. However, all too often, the opposite tends to take place as players pour more and more of their precious bankrolls into these large contests and never see a big payday. Obviously, the main culprit for these losing players is simple bankroll management where too much is put at risk in ways that nearly guarantee losses over time. The other, much less obvious issue is in how a player crafts his lineups to begin with.

 

Each season, we collect data on the winning lineups from most of the large prize pool $3 GPP events all the way up to the winning lineups for the $555 GPP each week. Over the years, there has been much debate among various people within the industry about the construction of cash lineups versus those used for GPP events. While much of the debate has largely been settled since the early days when just a small handful of sites vied for attention within the industry, the perpetual question of lineup construction for GPP events still looms large.
