  • NBA, 10/18

    Something I'll point out real quick: If you're here on RotoGrinders or even know what is meant by the term "chalk" you aren't a casual player. While Tatum and Brown will no doubt be highly-owned they won't be the kind of chalk that we see at the end of th... Read More

  • NBA Late swap ISSUE

    There's one big reason that they can't/won't do this. Well, actually a couple of reasons. The first is obviously that they don't want to divide up prize pools for the same slate. Huge prizes are the biggest draw to DFS, it's the reason people play the lott... Read More

  • NBA Late swap ISSUE

    This is one of my favorite strategies. A lot of times there’s just one or two games starting at 7:00 and they are usually slow-paced. If you lock in a dummy lineup you get an extra 30 minutes or even an hour to make decisions. As anyone who has played NB... Read More

  • NBA Late swap ISSUE

    It certainly is. I totally get the point of view that if everyone who played a guy gets a zero that's more fair to the casual player than not being one of the 20% who realized said player was out and made the switch. I'll freely admit that I'm one of the p... Read More

  • NBA Late swap ISSUE

    You can also make the exact opposite argument too. A large percentage of the DFS community are single guys 18-25. As in college kids. Before I had a family I was more likely to be at the bar or on a date than at home. Now that I've got kids, I've got my ph... Read More

  • Error in Draftkings rules for MLB.

    What are they trying to distinguish by listing all three there? I assume: Cancelled-This is a game that never starts? Postponed- This game starts at a later date? Rescheduled-Doesn't this mean the same as postponed? I think what they were trying to do is... Read More

  • Nascar, Restrictor plate racing is fun, Taledega style

    Restrictor plate races are my favorite ones specifically because pricing doesn't matter. I love that many try to spend the entire $50K yet the winning lineup sometimes has as low as $38K in salary used. The part that makes me sad is that the $8 GPP is onl... Read More

  • Error in Draftkings rules for MLB.

    Out of every post in here yours probably makes the most sense. These rules were clearly meant for one-day slates. What complicates things here is the "scoring period" spans multiple days in this case but not normally. The other issue, as you stated is tha... Read More

  • $100K 3rd place winner of last night's DK Milly was he ineligible to play?

    http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/consumer-information/dfs/ As far as I can tell, FantasySpin is a free site which would fall under the exemptions Exempt Contests: A DFS contest is an Exempt Contest if it meets one or more of the following crite... Read More

  • Draftkings Pays Out NBA Preseason Based Off Of Clearly Wrong Unofficial Box Scores

    Check out "(player-popup #andre-drummond)Andre Drummond":/players/andre-drummond-13904's start line from Wednesday. I don't know which part is harder to believe 4/5 from three-point land or 5/6 from the free throw line. I guess Drummond is an 80% three-po... Read More
