    This is not so much strategy related as much as it is a request. Do you play on Yahoo? Do you feel there is a big edge there given the lack of support/content for the site or is that offset by the lack of volume or rec players? And as a corollary, can we get more content for that site? (Expert Survey/Core Plays/Grind Down). If not, is there any advice on finding content you might have. Thank you as always.

    Was there ever a point where you changed your strategy multiple times? I play DFS NBA 99% over anything else. I have actually won a single entry tournament, but have never found consistency with my strategies. I have probably attacked this game with 50 different strategies, and have yet to find anything that is somewhat consistent. How much stock do you put into projections off of these websites? I have given up trying to do my own, and trust rotogrinders. I am just looking for ideas. Thanks!


    Alright cool, got it. Thank You Notó! I appreciate it. Keep up the great work!👍
