The Daily Spin – GPP Strategies Part I – 2016 Update

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.

Over the last season, we collected 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 $300 GPP each week. For most of the last year, a great debate has raged on throughout the DFS golf community over how to construct a lineup for cash games versus that for GPP. While the consensus has largely been that the styles of lineup are in fact distinct, there are still a few holdouts that believe that there really is not much difference between the ways a player builds a lineup when trying to beat half of the field versus building a lineup to beat the entire field. We think that the data is actually pretty clear that there are important differences and that the conclusions gained from this data will help you enormously in the upcoming year to improve upon your GPP results.
