Part 1: Why you need a process

In this 5-part series, you'll learn everything you need to know to build a winning MLB DFS process.

In the first lesson, you'll discover why having your own process is critical to DFS success.


Hey, how’s it going? My name’s Andy Baldacci. I’m the CEO of SaberSim and I’m going to cover in today’s video, the step-by-step process to beating daily fantasy sports in 2021. Before we jump in, let me just be clear. I am not going to guarantee that you’re going to win every single night because nobody does, and this is going to take some work. But what I’m going to cover are the exact steps to follow to get started. I’m going to talk about the contest to enter to the settings, to use to build your lineups and everything in between. Then you can build on this process and make it your own, but don’t start making a ton of tweaks until you have those basics down.

That being said, what is a DFS process anyways and why is it so important? Really a DFS process is just a fancy way of describing the deliberate repeatable steps that you follow when playing DFS. How do you decide how much you want to wager? What contest do you play? How many lineups do you build? What research to do before building your lineups, what steps you actually follow to build those lineups, and how do you get your lineups in your ideal contests? It’s not complicated, but it is absolutely crucial to your success in DFS. The games are getting harder and harder every year and you can’t expect it to show up and wing it and beat people who are putting serious work into their own process. If you want to win money at DFS in the long run, you need a repeatable process that you can build on and make your own. It doesn’t have to be complicated or take that much time, but you do need to have one and luckily in this video, I’m going to share a winning process that you can just steal and get started with right away.

First thing I’m going to do is talk about choosing the right contest and honestly, making mistakes here is the easiest way to turn a winning player into a losing player, but also vice versa. If you do this right, you can dramatically improve your results without doing anything else. We’ll talked about this more in a second, but honestly, the advice out there is absolutely horrible on this subject. Then I’m going to talk about the settings you want to use to build high upside lineups for the exact contests that you’re playing, and lastly, I’ll show you the fastest way to get your lineups uploaded to DraftKings or FanDuel, but for now let’s jump right in.
