How We Almost Became Millionaires

by Jimmy Spark · DFS
Everyone wants to be better at daily fantasy, but most people do not have time to research every player in-depth, figure out which of the hundreds of DFS tools to utilize or iterate over the many Lineup Optimizers flooding the space.

In week 2, one of our featured DraftKings tournament lineups finished top-10 in the Milly Maker. The Podfather spoke with PlayerProfiler subscriber Jim McInerney, who was pleasantly stunned:

“Whatever you guys are doing is working, because I almost become a millionaire already. Using one of your lineups, I placed 10th in the Milly Maker and cashed out almost $8,000.”

PlayerProfiler’s Lineup Genius – Step 1

After a successful second year blending machine learning with real-life heuristics, our lineup building engine is now a finely tuned machine, and the Analytics Team knew the best was yet to come in 2020. But even our most confident analysts were surprised by how quickly PlayerProfiler’s suggested GPP lineups hit the jackpot.

This has inspired a new YouTube show: Almost a Millionaire, where The Podfather interviews PlayerProfiler subscribers who hit DFS jackpots using PlayerProfiler’s DFS Lineup Genius.
