  • DraftKings Community: what would you like to know?

    Hello. I would like to know why you made up a rule in the middle of a baseball slate last night? The Washington game was postponed prior to lock. For some reason, DK decided to move the lock back for that game from it's 7:05 lock to 10:10. No email was sen... Read More

  • Dear Tennis fans, we love you. Let's talk about walkovers.

    I would prefer that the walkover winner get some number of points. Perhaps 40, but something in the range of 30-50 seems fine. That way you still have a fighting chance in cash. I don't mind if you are shut out of a high finish in a GPP. Read More

  • NASCAR clash

    It was tied for 1st at lap 73/75. It had the 1st through 6th spots. In the $27, it was worth $739.80. (In a multi-way tie.) At the end...it was worth $60 Read More

  • Get free cash for trying out some of DRAFT's newest features in Week 6

    I'll let you know after we see how "(player-popup)Cam Newton":/players/cam-newton-11630 does. (Honest answer? I like the live draft more than the autodraft. The pre-draft ranking tool is useful. I'm unlikely to auto-draft in the future unless you set up a... Read More

  • FD Early Only squeeze

    It doesn't sound like this is the case for this particular guy, but I'm sometimes stuck with trains based on late scratches or rainouts. I suspect that some of the trains that exist are because of this. I don't intentionally play trains. But I do usually ... Read More

  • Al Smizzle’s Quarter Arcade Challenge!

    I routinely multi-enter tournaments at Fanduel. 20-60 lineups is fairly usual. I play very little on DK. I'm going to try 50 entries in the quarter arcade today. I have the day off of work. :) I anticipate it will be much tougher for me than on FD. ... Read More

  • Staking

    A staking arrangement should detail the length of time that it holds. It should cover which tournaments (or cash games) it covers. I.e. can the stakehorse play other tournaments as well, or is all action owned by the staker? (I strongly suggest that "all a... Read More

  • DFS Taxes Question

    Then you would assume wrong. From IRS ruling in Tschetschot v Commisioner in 2007 US Tax Court, "A casino's decision to issue a Form W2-G, Certain Gambling Winnings, or a Form 1099-Misc, Miscellaneous Income, does not affect the nature of the winnings f... Read More

  • DFS Taxes Question

    Perhaps try to find advice about a knowledgeable tax professional in your area. My experience is that this is not a subject that is generally well-known by your average tax guy. "Tax Help for Gamblers" by Scott and Chien is probably worth a read (espec... Read More

  • How many lineups do you guys enter into GPPs. The big ones.

    For those who are wondering, no I'm not a bot. Yes, I've got a lot of entries into the Fanduel Sunday Million some weeks. Yes, I'm making a profit. I don't know how much of that is luck vs skill. Yes, there are weeks where I take an absolute bath and l... Read More

  • Fanduel down to 2.5 million?

    There wasn't any true overlay this week. They raked. (But not a lot.) 125,175 entries. At $25 per that's $3,129,375 on a payout of $3m Read More

  • That isn't a Vegas line. It is RG's formula for dividing up the run total based on the money line. If you want a real run total, you can get up to date information from Pinnacle. Read More

  • bq.. @KRD227 said... Wow…low freakin’ scores on FD tonight. I had 224.3 and somehow went 11-5 playing DUs,50/50s, and head-to-heads. That’s crazy for that low of a score. I had Blake, Jones, and Adrien – it must hav... Read More

  • Perfectly reasonable to have had Noah. It seemed like a good spot. I was quite happy with playing him. I was not happy with his fantasy points until his flurry of points at the end of the 4th plus OT. 9.4 FD in last 3 minutes of regulation, then 9.1 more i... Read More

  • ESPN's team page for LAC lists him as out for 3-8. Don't know what their source is. When you click for the "full" injury report, they are saying: "Crawford (calf) is a game-time decision for Saturday's game, the Orange County Register reports." Read More
