Even though you may not support all the ideas, I think most would agree that it's been interesting to read all the different strategies that people are blogging/chatting about with regard to being successful on DraftStreet. That's just a small part of what makes the game so exciting right up until the last out – each and every night. Now that everyone else has had their turn, it's time for me to reveal the true secret to success on DraftStreet – which amazingly only a few have figured out so far.
The most difficult part of DraftStreet is not the process of selecting a competitive team and beating your competition (don't worry though, I'll give you tips on that as well later in this article). Most everyone playing daily fantasy games knows their stuff, but even the most knowledgeable and savvy players can run cold every now and then. The hardest part is dipping back into your funds and pressing that “confirm deposit” button.
What's crazy is that I get the feeling most people don't even realize that it's relatively easy for you to play for cash and win money without ever having to deposit. The recruiting program is among the best I've seen and this day in age recruiting such a simple thing to do. For example, the person who recruited me makes anywhere from $500-$700 a month off of JUST ME… imagine recruiting someone that plays at least twice as much as me (ex: Fredotz, Hixville), or even a handful of people that play half as much. It's the equivalent of MGM saying “Hey, bring your friends to our casinos and we'll give you a stack of our money to play with…or take home if you want”.
Some recruiting methods that have worked for me beyond just inviting my closest friends:
The ideas are really endless and if you're interested in promoting DS and really going after recruits, I'm sure the DraftStreet team would be willing to help, because the truth is…they don't want you to ever have to deposit either! Why do you think all the deposit codes are first/one time use only? If you recruit, everybody wins. You're making money, DraftStreet is growing and there are more people for me to beat every day.
Alright, since many of you came here hoping for some actual tips on how to beat the big guys in the daily baseball leagues, here are some line-ups/strategies that have worked in the past.
