1. When to buy
A player has a plus matchup
A star player is having a bad start
A rookie is in the starting lineup
Sometimes it is best to use the “wait and watch” approach. If LeBron James starts the game 0/7 from the field, his price will plummet. Now would be the best time to buy him as he is bound to bounce back. This is called buying low. Look for high-ceiling players who start off slow, and then pounce!
2. When to sell
A player is underperforming
A player gets injured
A player subs out of the game
Remember when Kevin Love scored 34 points in the first quarter against the Blazers? If you sold him right after the first quarter, you made a big profit, as he only went on to score 6 points the rest of the game. This is called selling high. Sell your players when you feel they’ve reached their peak.
3. Going all in
When you go all in, you are putting all of your StockJocks dollars on one player. It’s a risky strategy that can be very profitable. High risk, high reward!
When you diversify, you are buying many players, lowering your risk, but also limiting your reward. This is the opposite of going all in. Lower risk, lower reward.
This is a well-known term in fantasy football. We know that most of Ben Roethlisberger’s touchdowns are to Antonio Brown, so you could “stack” both of these players to increase the potential profit. Stacking involves spending half of your StockJocks dollars on Roethlisberger and the other half on Brown. This is also a high risk, high reward strategy.
