The Daily Spin – GPP Strategies Part III – 2016 Update

Last week, we started our journey into the numbers over the last year for the winning lineups in the $3 GPP events and how they tended to follow certain patterns in terms of the types of players owned and the ownership percentages that give us a better target for which to aim when we begin to construct our teams each week. While noting a few anomalies among some of the events, by and large, our small sample should help us in the coming season to begin to truly think in terms of lineup styles for particular events rather than simply throwing together lineup after lineup that seemingly looks good, but in reality may have little chance to win simply due to particular characteristics at the outset.

The main takeaways that we have gleaned from the numbers is that lineups should be constructed based on the type of contest entered. For cash games, players with low variance are important and overlapping ownership is not an issue worth worrying about too much. You are looking to minimize mistakes against a field that (hopefully) you believe you are better than average against and you do that by choosing players that tend to be predictable with a low standard deviation from their average performances.
