FanDuel Trends: Week 15
Every week, I join eight 50/50 leagues on FanDuel that start on Thursday in an attempt to not only win some cash, but to find selection trends in non-tournament games. You see, once a game starts, the site conveniently tells you how many teams, in the form of a percentage, are using particular players. Given I join eight of them, the sample size is fairly significant, as this yields a 400-team group.
This isnâ€™t an exact science, but it definitely can give you an idea of what to expect from your competition on the site. If youâ€™re deciding between two guys with a similar price tag, perhaps this will help you move in a specific direction. After all, you donâ€™t want your lineup to look identical to everyone elseâ€™s.
