My good friend Marshall does poetry, and I honestly think he’s one of the best poets in the world. Today, I wanted to break down a couple of his poems and try to apply some of the concepts to daily fantasy sports.

What I’ll do is look at a few excerpts from four of his poems. I chose these poems because I think they do a nice job of sort of breaking down the evolution of a daily fantasy player. I’ve personally transitioned in this way, and I think it’s typical for players to experience the same basic stages in their DFS development.

Hopefully you like Marshall’s poetry as much as I do.
