The NFL Wildcard round presents a unique puzzle when it comes to the DFS landscape: a card of only 4 games, comprising 8 teams all good enough to qualify for the post-season.

With the massive amount of information to process each week, any good daily fantasy football player knows it is crucial to develop a pre-game routine. Different players will have their own favorite resources to call upon during their preparation, but they will all focus on similar factors that unquestionably have an effect on expected performance.

Most DFS players have jobs and other responsibilities that prevent them from being able to put in the time to go deep into every matchup and historical trend. Even in a weekly sport such as football, very few of us have the hours to put in in order to roster a lineup that represents the pinnacle of our research ability.

When constructing daily fantasy football tournament lineups, many players will take the extra step and look at how the opponent ranks for the season against particular positions.

Any successful daily fantasy sports player will tell you that due to the large amount of information there is to decipher, all with varying degrees of importance, in a very limited window of time, it is essential to develop a routine. As part of that routine, the segment that is most overlooked is the post-game analysis, namely going back after the tournament day and looking at what went right, what went wrong, and where you might have been able to improve upon the entry you submitted.
