If you’re looking for tools & content for other NFL slates, head over to Awesemo’s NFL ProjectionsAwesemo’s NFL Ownership ProjectionsAwesemo’s NFL Data Central, and NFL Rankings. For FREE DraftKings and FanDuel NFL DFS content, including FREE NFL DFS Strategy shows on our YouTube and Podcast Platforms, NFL DFS cheatsheets, and expert picks, check out our NFL home page!

Comparing ownership to projection is essential to success in DFS tournaments, and DraftKings Showdown and FanDuel Single Game add a new wrinkle to the strategy with a 1.5x multiplier for one player.  This tool will help you decide who to put in both your multiplier spot and your remaining flex spots.  For Showdown this feature will be available for both Awesemo+ and Awesemo+ Express memberships.

The concept of this tool is that you will need the top scoring player on the slate to be your 1.5x and the next highest scoring 4-5 players to be in the flex positions, salary permitting. My table will tell you the probability that each player will be the highest scorer and also a salary adjusted version to tell you the value you’re getting per % as far as probability, and then also for the flex position to be in the top 6 on DK and top 5 on FD excluding first place to model the optimal lineup.

“TS”: Top Scorer
“SW”: Salary Weighted
“2-6/2-5%”: Probability the player will be ranked 2-6/5 in total score.
“%/$1k” Percentage points for 2-6% per $1,000.



Alex is better known to fantasy players by his handle "Awesemo" from seeing him in every big tournament in the industry. Playing poker professionally from 2009-2015, he heard that daily fantasy was the next big game picking up steam, and he quickly saw the potential of the relatively new game. Growing his bankroll from 2015-2016, he made a big step in 2017 by claiming the #1 overall ranking on RotoGrinders for the year. After completing his primary objective, he was looking for what's next. Attending dozens of fantasy events, Alex realized that everyone was repeating the same story: wanting to be a great DFS player while holding down a full-time job. He realized that the resources available to fantasy players while great weren't enough to help hobbyists get to the level of competing with the top pros. Having met Tom Kennedy during the FanDuel Scottish Open, the two decided to take on the realm of fantasy content along with co-founder Eddie Lai. Alex creates his own projections for each sport he plays, publishing rankings derived directly from them updated for each major slate. He also writes strategy content for how to become a better DFS player in his Game Plan series. You can contact Alex by emailing
