# Fantasy NHL Hockey, Day 9

Last night I lost at DFS hockey again, \$2 dollars spent on two \$1 contests. One contest was a double up, and another contest was a 3 – 100 player contest. Tonight I’m going to play a \$1 51 entry GPP where the top 16 (top 31% of entries) pays out.

I don’t think any of my goalies has won a game, which in some cases would have pushed me into the money. I’ve got to get better at tracking results in a standardized way, so that I can evaluate what I’m doing more rigorously.

This is my strategy so far:

• pick a starting goalie from a game that I will watch
• bet \$1 against the opposite team of my goalie
• list three games with the highest chances of going over the most goals, and restrict my players to those games
• remove/hide the columns for ID, first name, last name, and the column for each individual team
• make data a table
• remove all injured players
• create new column to calculate price/FPPG
• calculate and sort by price/FPPG
• remove all games except the three most likely to go over
• calculate the average games played, and remove all players with less than average
• draft players starting from lowest price/FGGP until a team can be drafted
• filter out any players with less than 70% of the average salary remaining after drafting a goalie
• skip players after you’ve filled their position
• for the final pick, skip all players whose price is higher than what’s left to draft

This basic strategy fills a lineup.

My results after last 2 entries:

DraftKings 0

FanDuel -\$2.00

Hedging \$0

Total -\$2.00

Overall:

DraftKings +\$0.80

FanDuel -\$6.00

Hedging +\$2.11

Total -\$3.09

To do’s for next game:

• write a macro to do the filtering with a spreadsheet
