Multipliers are one of the most popular types of tournament to play in daily fantasy football.
They offer players the chance to multiply their entry fee, for example winning 10 times the amount of money a contest costs to enter, by finishing in the top places on the final leaderboard.
Multipliers – which are known as Boosters on DraftKings – can be a great way for new fantasy football players to boost their bankroll.
The 50/50 is the most common type of multiplier fantasy football contest available to play. Half of the players who enter will win double what they paid to play in a tournament in these games.
Fantasy football players should keep in mind that the higher the multiplier, the less chance they will have of winning, although the rewards will obviously be greater too.
Your strategy for picking your roster should depend on what number multiplier event you are entering. For example, a 2x multiplier daily fantasy football contest requires a fairly safe line-up to give you the best possible chance of finishing in the top half of the rankings and winning cash.
However, if you are entering a 10x multiplier daily fantasy football game you will need to finish in the top 10% of players to get paid, so you are going to have to take a few more risks with your players and perhaps have a couple of contrarian picks in your side to edge ahead of the pack.
Mix up the multiplier games you enter for the best possible results in your fantasy football career. The majority of the multiplier games you enter should be 2x or 3x contests to gradually build up your bankroll, but it is worth entering a few 5x or 10x multipliers to aim for bigger wins too.
