2016 Draft Kit

FanDuel daily fantasy baseball advice for Tuesday, Aug. 11: Value-adjusted hitter and pitcher rankings

This morning I woke up to puddles on my bathroom floor. The rain, it seems was so heavy it poured in through a window that never lets rain in.

Nothing got ruined. Even the toilet paper. The dispenser is right below the window. I’d call that a stroke of good luck. If I still talked much about luck. We attribute good or bad occurrences to luck. It’s one of the mystical things humans made up to explain things we can’t explain.

Luck is about how the forces of nature (mystical!) are fighting for or against you. Selfish. I use variance now, especially when I’m talking to you about fantasy advice. Variance is analytical. Variance is randomness. Embrace variance and you’ll win at daily fantasy sports.

Just like our Draft Kings rankings, these FanDuel rankings provided some +value yesterday. We’re going to keep going with them until this streak stops.
