  • EPL 4 November

    I read your blog post and think it is always best to see what are the best plays and not speculate what the coach will do with the line-up. After losing to Spurs in a humiliating manner last time round, there was no way Klopp was going to muck about with h... Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    I have played all the different DFS sports and have no issue learning about how the scoring works for each sport. Yes, hockey has a similar scoring to football. But what I find odd is the argument passes do not count and should not be scored. But any rando... Read More

  • Help with Projecting PGA Ownership

    It takes time but eventually you get a hang of it from checking different sources. Fan Share Sports is a must as they nail the top ownership in Golf so recommend registering there. Hatton was always going to have high ownership as there was a lot of buzz ... Read More

  • Who is Testosterown?

    That is some impressive win totals across all sports by 莫愛您… Nearly 50,000 wins in less than a year and half. Is that a record for Yahoo ? Or are there even bigger sharks in that platform ? This person must be grinding 24 hours a day. :) Read More

  • Any good DFS books?

    Congrats on you success Scott, listened to your interview on the perfect line-up pod, it was very informative and helpful. My question is a general one, I am playing on DK from the U.K so the NFL season that just completed was my first time learning about ... Read More

  • Any good DFS books?

    I will say read widely not just about DFS. I recommend these two books on forecasting and randomness highly. http://www.economist.com/news/books-and-arts/21666098-forecasting-talent-luckily-it-can-be-learned-unclouded-vision http://www.nytimes.com/2008/0... Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    Yes, I have never understood their rationale on crosses. Have they explained why they do not want to count accurate crossing only ? Bizarre to score any crosses but nada for passes which essentially what football is about. Guessing they think players want ... Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    Indeed we all can discuss it till the cows come home, it is subjective what scoring system people will like. But you are exaggerating on corners won aspect, it makes less than 1% of the overall scoring there. So for example Fabinho for Monaco has 9.75 Yah... Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    It is the most all-rounded game out there. So many strategies can be deployed to win their game, for me it is brilliant. You will not get away there just picking full backs who cross and midfielders on set piece duties. In short, DK's game is simplistic an... Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    Spot on Yeoman, in full agreement and could not have said it better. Hence why I do not play much DK soccer except free rolls and quarter arcades. The scoring system is laughable for those of us who have played fantasy games for a long time. Read More

  • Draftkings scoring changes

    You are nailing it on the head here. A soccer fantasy game scoring that gives value to all positions on the field should not be hard to grasp for these platforms. Credit to Yahoo for realising that and offering a well-rounded game with a scoring that does ... Read More

  • UFC 208: Holm vs. de Randamie

    Is MMA DFS tournaments really worth playing ? Despite the scoring changes we still seeing regularly ties in the leaderboard. Think a sport much more suited to prop bets and parlays. Read More

  • Sharks, Pros, and Guru's: You have NO Soul

    Agreed we live in a very self serving and self centered world. DFS is no exception, I just can not stand the hypocrisy and double dealing you see both from the platforms & some of their customers. We all want to do well, have fun and cash in to be profitab... Read More

  • Sharks, Pros, and Guru's: You have NO Soul

    You are so wrong and missing the woods for the forest. The poster makes a very good observation about game integrity and having a platform that should cater to all customers. So the "200-300" heavy volume sharks being allowed to as they please because they... Read More

  • Genesis Open (Formerly Northern Trust) PGA

    I do like Golf game on DK from all the sports in the lobby. But they going out of their way to mess it up by not pricing the salaries properly in recent weeks. So will be interesting to see what they do for the Genesis Open that is filled with a lot of sta... Read More

  • Sharks, Pros, and Guru's: You have NO Soul

    As an aside, DFS Twitter might be the worst thing this game has inflicted on the world. I feel compelled to follow, rightly or wrongly, because I don’t want to be out of touch with whatever direction this thing is going in, but it’s a hellscape, popula... Read More

  • DK removing late swap for NBA

    Very true, take your money and play elsewhere that listens. Yahoo has late swap across all sports and rather be there. Of course no lottery size pools and payouts. But who cares about that ? Rather have all the tools available to react to late team news. Read More

    Of course be it single entry, three max entry or 150 entry there will be countless combinations in these contests. But that is beside the point, contest selection is key!!! I still rather play single entry contest then followed by three max then a once in ... Read More

  • Official FantasyAces Discussion Thread

    Can you not take quotes out of context and use it for a non existing argument. My initial comment as you could see perfectly well was to a poster saying the big sites like DK, FD and Yahoo will be fine. Yahoo's finances speak for itself, FD finances I put ... Read More

  • EPL 1/31/2017

    Bookmark this page and it has excellent game week reviews, it should give you an idea of what the game flow will be like. Do not trust any site that tells you they can make player predictions and it a lot of BS. EPL is not NBA where you can make player pro... Read More

    This looks a right mess and hopefully customers will get their funds reimbursed in full. I have always been on the side of seeing all these platforms with a critical eye and taking what they say with a pinch of salt. How many scandals does one need before ... Read More
