Let’s look at where the field seems misaligned with the winning lineup analysis and where we can try to gain some leverage:
Winning lineups leave twice as much salary on average (only slightly more on a median basis, which means we’ve seen some winners leave significantly more than the $2k average). As with Showdown on Draftkings, leaving salary on the table is one of the best ways to ensure less duplication, without significantly impacting your chances of winning. Should you ALWAYS leave salary on the table? I would argue no, it’s just one tool in your toolbox . . .
