  • Is It Just Simply Impossible Now to Build a Bankroll on $1 and $2 Contests?

    Personally, I wouldn't put too much stock in three day streaks. It's hard to tell what is working/not working from small time spans due to the inherent variance of DFS. Sometimes you've got to trust the process and reevaluate after a longer period. I do... Read More

  • MLB Playoff Thread

    Just letting everyone know that on DK the playoff arcade is WAYYYY more fun than the classic for these two game playoff slates. The addition of relievers (well more points for their stats so they are legit choices) introduces a lot more skill than a 2 gam... Read More

  • Fanduel and Draftkings rake increase

    This is not true. Maybe you have just been around rotogrinders for too long, but a LARGE number of players (who don't put in much effort) play for the entertainment and know going in that their chances of making money are slim. I know a lot of friends tha... Read More

  • Narrowing Player Pool for GPP (MLB)

    ive been having the most success this year doing 20 entry max by going with 2-3 pitchers and a single main stack. I then fill in with whatever I think is optimal. Read More

  • MLB, 7/30

    most of my success this year has come from 5/1/1/1 or 5/2/1 stacks. most of my success last year was paying up for pitching and finding low owned cheap stacks, but this year its been almost entirely finding cheap pitchers and paying up for over priced stu... Read More

  • MLB, 7/15

    except the yankees are much worse vs lefties and they get a ball park downgrade and its chris sale. IMO there are smart ways to be contrarian as oppose to just being contrarian for the sake of it. sure its only a couple of bucks but if you are consistent... Read More

  • UK Bookmaker buys DRAFT for $48m

    I agree that I don't like this particular style of DFS, but I do see one huge advantage of it for them. Casual players don't have to spend as much time researching an entire slate because you only pick the top guys anyway. So you could make the argument ... Read More

  • MLB, 5/12

    honestly, I think that's not a bad choice on DK. He will be almost unowned bc of the pitch limit would be my guess. and if he can get you 15 FP on DK at his price, with no other amazing pitching spots, and all the great expensive hitting options tonight.... Read More

    I think if he didn't have a pitch count he would be like 50%+ owned this slate at his price in GPPs. EDIT: on dk. Read More

    ya on the upside, you gotta like the mets offense a lot too in MIL vs Garza. so at least they have a chance to win. Read More

  • Calling all GPP players!!!!

    I'm mostly a cash player, but ive been playing more GPPs recently. I don't really care for the 1st place price, I care more about payout structure as I prefer flatter payouts. I also generally target single entry gpps, 3 max, and low entry 100 mans. Alt... Read More

    As a mets fan, I can only agree with this. as much as I want Harvey to prove he can come back, everything that has happened within the past year or more leads me to believe he gets absolutely LIT tonight. Read More

    My thoughts are along the lines of what everyone is saying, but I wouldn't necessarily say to definitely take all the money out. I think you should do what will provide you the most entertainment/happiness. It seems like you have fun playing small amount... Read More

    anyone else do the DK fan choice survivor? im in the Day 4 with my single bullet, but looking at entries it seems like a bunch of the usual culprits still have lots of entries. its gonna be hard :( Read More

    no, it doesn't make me wonder at all. if anyone were to play this lineup yesterday then they probably are a -EV bad DFS player. Read More

  • MLB, 5/10

    IMO Miley is not worth it even as a GPP flier. Why would you target a team that hits lefties really well in warm weather in a small ballpark? especially when there are a lot of good pitching options today that will be splitting ownership anyway. Not to me... Read More

    he pitched in MIL four times and CIN once out of six appearances. and he is now facing a struggling SF team in a much better pitching environment than before. not saying he is good or will do great today, but he is certainly in a decent spot. Read More
