Mat’s DFS Profile

Written By: SimpleSlates

THE CREATION STORY

Mat started playing DFS with a $10 deposit, and would play a few dollars every night in hopes of learning the skill he was trying to master. Luckily for him, he managed to win $1,000 on a $10 investment into a single entry contest early on. Unluckily for him, he was still an inexperienced player. You can probably imagine what happened next. If you guessed won millions of dollars, bought three homes, and married a Victoria Secret model, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Mat lost that $1000 within a month following the win, and was right back to square one.

Mat deposited another $10 after this crushing defeat, and began playing just a few dollars a night again hoping to build his bankroll back up. His initial goal was $100, and then once that was achieved he planned to move the goal posts to the $1000 he had previously won and subsequently lost. This time around, he wasn’t so lucky. It took him a full three months to get his bankroll back up to $1000. During this process however, he profited something much greater than a small lump sum of money. Mat learned how to use strategy to be consistently successful with daily fantasy sports.

THE TRIUMPH

During the grind Mat learned to appreciate the strategies top players used to build their lineups and implement those strategies into his own. The most important lesson he learned during this time however, was the 80/20/10 rule of money management. This concept was a game changer, and with the proper discipline all but guaranteed his success as a DFS player. This rule is covered in great depth in our DFS Training Course that comes with any access pass purchase.

Over the last few years Mat has seen an enormous amount of consistent success, and at the time of writing this is currently ranked 289 on the RotoGrinders leader board from a pool of 38,160 players. He has several take downs under his belt, and has proven to be consistent in cash games as well. His DFS success was the primary motivator in participating with the creation of Simple Slates. His mind set was, if he could do it, anyone could…they just needed to know how.

THE LESSON LEARNED

This story was told to get the point across that DFS success does not come overnight. You cannot deposit money and instantly be a DFS pro. You might get lucky as Mat did, but without the proper discipline and strategy you can easily be back to your starting point in the blink of an eye. When starting with daily fantasy sports, building a bankroll will be your primary goal. This should be done with patience and discipline, you most likely will not see an immediate return on your investment. That return will however come with time and understanding.

We hope that you will try one of our access passes and take some time to go through our DFS Training Course that comes with every level of access.

  3. Hello does the day pass give me the same lineup as the yearly & monthly?

    • Hello, thanks for the comment! You get access to the same core plays and pivots regardless of which membership level you choose. The differences are just in terms of how long you would like to receive them for. The longer duration you buy, the lower the per slate price goes. Right now the best deal is the Yearly NBA Pass because you get 365 day access for the price of less than 27 daily slates, the remainder of this NFL season is included for free, and you gain access to the instructional content on the website that will help you make you a better overall DFS player. Thanks again, good luck!
