Sports are a game of skill but also of calculated odds. When you have two elite players or teams facing each other, many times it comes down to something other than skill to determine the outcome.
Daily Fantasy Sports is about trying to find those players who have a good chance to do well. Sometimes just knowing a baseball player always does good after a days rest or a basketball player is horrible in their 3rd straight road game is enough to win a tournament.
Your job in daily fantasy sports is to find these players with competitive advantages.
One way to do this is through analyzing statistics.
This is something the best DFS players do daily. It can be real time consuming though.
One tool that many people use are spreadsheets. They are a great analytical tool which allows you to find trends and perform statistical analysis. This analysis can help you find great plays for the day.
However, it's not easy to know how to do this.
That is why I created a course to teach Spreadsheets to daily fantasy sports players.
I have created many Youtube videos which have gotten incredible feedback so I decided to create a course of 40 plus videos together along with a 100 page write up to help explain these spreadsheets.
I go step by step so even beginners can follow. While I also use many advanced techniques to teach even the advanced users some tricks.
This course will teach you ways to do your daily research in a quicker method while showing you how to find the stats that predict competitive advantages.
So if you are interested in saving time and creating better lineups through spreadsheet research, read below what the course offers...
Module 1 - How to pull in Stats from the web
In this module I show you how to set up your spreadsheets to pull in stats from the web. I go into compiling multiple pages of stats into one page and also show how to use Google Sheets to pull in data along with the Excel Add in "Power Query". This will simplify the data collection process.
Module 2 - Finding Trends from Historical Data
In this module I show you how to research prior historical stats and game logs to find trends. These can be trends that all players are known for or individual trends. I show how to summarize this data and how to see which trends are statistically significant.
Module 3 - How to Make your Own Projections
In this module I show you how you can create your own projections based solely on statistical trends and your biases. I show how to apply the trends you found in module 2 and how to build your spreadsheets with advanced spreadsheet formulas.
Module 4 - Using Solver for Optimal Lineups
In this module I show how to use the Solver Add in to look at your data and create optimized lineups. I go over advanced features like stacking a team, or Including or excluding players, accounting for a flex spot and more.
Module 5 - Using Advanced spreadsheet Features for Stat analysis
In this module I go over advanced spreadsheet features and concepts like pivot tables, macros, and conditional formatting to review sports data. This analysis will help you determine various aspects of the game to help you make better player choices.
This course was amazing! It helped me learn so much! I just cut my research time in half!
Very cool, good job and thanks!
Your videos are nicely done and very thorough. I'm not very good at computers but I was able to follow along with your instructions! Thank you!
Thank you very much for this course. I've learned more so much about spreadsheets that I now have my own projection system. It's helped me to win money in my last few days of NBA games!
I've created this course to help the average Daily Fantasy Player increase their odds of winning and also cut down on time in their research. I've heard from so many people who do a lot of manual work in preparing their lineups, I felt this knowledge can help save them some time in life!
Crunching the numbers and analyzing past data is an excellent way towards winning at Fanduel or Draftkings. Many people know some of the basics of spreadsheets, but if you are truly serious about winning at DFS and want to save time in the process, it may be worth spending a little bit of time and money now to learn spreadsheets better and how to apply that towards daily fantasy.
Have a look at the inside of the course!! See this video, I show you what you will see when you enroll:
I have used Excel spreadsheets for 15 years to analyze data and have incorporated that into the world of Daily Fantasy sports for the last 4 years. I have created spreadsheet tools for the last 1.5 years that over 2500 people have used to create lineups for their tournaments. I also have a Youtube channel, "Excelbyjoe" where I post some helpful videos on using spreadsheets for Daily Fantasy sports. It has over 100,000 views.
