2013 Fantasy Baseball, The Daily Fix: September 26th, 2013

This is my last fix article of the baseball season. It has been my pleasure to give you my picks for at least twice a week for most of the season. I wish I would have done better, but I have to remember the key rule for gambling: the house always wins. The key for all fantasy sports is to remember that it is largely for entertainment purposes only. Some of us in the expert business will try to sell you on the fact that we can predict the future better than most. If we could honestly do that we wouldn’t have day jobs. That is why I make sure never to gamble more than a few dollars on any one contest. Those of you participating in college and pro football contests will likely experience the same thing.

At the end of the baseball season, you want to play as many playoff bound players as possible. Non-contenders will play kids the last week of the season, but if you can catch a team still fighting for their playoff life then you will end up doing a lot better. As always, make sure you check the lineups before you submit your final rosters.

Today, I’m playing in a Double Up! contest again. They range anywhere from a dollar to over 100 dollars, but each works the same way. If you finish in the top half you get almost twice as much as you put in. Naturally, DraftKings gets their cut because they have to pay their employees, the light bill, and make a little for their trouble. That being said, they are very generous to those that start playing as they will give you a deposit bonus you can access here.
