If you run really bad at poker one night, chances are you’ll do better the next night. Even within one long session, if you play your cards right, more times than not you will see variance begin to swing in your favor. In dynasty fantasy football, playing your cards right might mean it takes a couple of seasons before variance fully swings around. Even redraft is a remarkably slower timescale in terms of payout turnaround than poker, where you can get paid daily. Did I say ‘daily’? There is a reason daily FF has exploded and it has everything to do with variance and getting paid off quickly, not once every twelve months.
