Here's the Eric in Madison Update:
Started with $50
Currently have $59 in my account.
Was hot in the first few days of the season and got some wins, built the account up over $70. Usually I play $2 games, but then I got cocky and started entering $5 games. Of course I started losing because I'm not so good at this, and the bankroll was down.
Last night, Thad Young, Kevin Love, and others got me back in the (minimal) cash, and now I'm $9 up on the season.
How best to pick a team? I wish I knew. I try to favor match ups between higher paced teams, and I look for bargains among guys who are getting unexpected playing time due to injuries before the market catches up to them. Mo Williams helped me out a few times early; T.J. McConnell a couple of times.
Anyway, it's been fun so far and gives me some extra rooting interest when I'm cruising games on League Pass.
