Junkie Jargon

Balanced Lineup

Taking a lot of players in DFS near the middle price point.


Bank Roll

Funds a player has allocated or made available to play in DFS contests.


Bome

DB & Pat use this word in exchange of “Boom” after Pat’s intoxicated slur the night the US won the Ryder Cup in 2016 came out “Bome.”


Buy In

The entry fee or cost to enter a DFS contest.


Cash Game

A common term used for describing contests in which the prize pool is divided in half and is awarded to the winners. Typically a 1-1 ROI. Cash Games consist of:

  • Head-to-Head (Heads Up) – A daily fantasy sports contest against a single opponent.
  • 50/50 – A league in which the top 50% of scores win. In a 50/50 league with 100 entries, the top 50 scores double their “buy-in” minus the “rake.” So even if you finish 50th in a 100-man $10 50/50, you win the same amount as the 1st-place finisher ($18).
  • Double-Up – Cash game in which players who win double their entry fee. “Double-Ups” are different from 50/50s in that those who win actually multiply their full entry (for instance, a $10 entry that wins in a Double-Up would win $20), but sites take their rakes by having fewer than half the field.

Ceiling

A golfer’s upside or the maximum number of points you could expect.


Chalk

A term for a high-ownership or an obvious DFS play.
