I’m going to San Diego this week for the DraftKings Fantasy Football Championship. I currently have one seat (out of 200), although I’m writing this on Monday and have a shot at securing a second seat as well (but I’m worse than a coin flip to do that).

The best thing about live finals is the location seeing friends the free food. DraftKings has a number of parties and events, and of course everything is free. The food typically comes in buffet form, which is great, but I do wish it would be served to me in a box from a delivery guy like I’m used to. There’s also typically real china and silverware, while I prefer paper plates, plastic utensils, and red Solo cups.

But you can’t have everything I guess.

Anyway, I’m dedicating most of my week to winning this thing, so I figured I’d selfishly write this article with my thoughts on some strategy for this event. It should help me think things through, and you get to, well, you don’t get much out of it I guess. But that’s fine; this column isn’t about you, so stop being so selfish.

I have a number of scattered thoughts about live finals, Week 15, and this particular championship event. So I’ll just lay those out in absolutely no logical order whatsoever. Enjoy.
