  • DK pricing week 2

    As a player I'm glad they're running a $1m tournament at $27 - even at crazy soft prices. But they didn't even come close to filling this tournament at $500k in Week 1. It still had $75k in overlay. Boosting it by ANOTHER $500k seems.......well, it's good ... Read More

  • Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the NFL have pay entry last year? Just at real low entry fees. I could swear they did. Read More

  • I'd love to hear your argument on why it's so easy to defend golf. UIGEA is exceptionally clear on this: It has to be multiple events for it to be considered fantasy. The Masters is itself one event. Period. There is no good argument around that. ... Read More

  • Personally I think FCK's fears are justified. The fact of the matter is that I once thought DFS had a pretty high ceiling. Not as high as poker, but reasonably high. However, watching a site like Draftstreet get sold off to DK is making me reassess... Read More

  • I recognize this may not be possible, but is there a timeline on this? "Things like snake drafts, pick’ems, and an improved loyalty program as well as new sports like soccer are in the future plans, but these take time to create and will need to... Read More

  • bq.. @barro said... Let me take this convo in a related but different direction: Does anyone else feel the DK is slowly discouraging the casual fan from DFS? Here me out. To me the causal player is anyone that plays between $0-$100 a night (m... Read More

  • bq.. @Cal said... From what I can tell the only precedent DK could set here is including the value of tickets won in qualifiers towards the prize total of the entire series. I can see how that is a problem for those of you that want cash ... Read More

  • This is not a semantics issue, but a real instance of double counting of prizes. Here is why: Take a $67,000 Atlantis Qualifier with the following breakdown: $50,000 = value of entry into the $2,500,000 Atlantis tournament $4,500 = value of the Atl... Read More

  • Anyone who thinks DS is making a ton of money is kidding themselves. We've all watched them overlay the hell out of things dating back to NFL 2013. Light H2H volume, etc. And with them being majority owned by IAC - a company which has a tendency to give si... Read More

  • Surprised it took this long for people to finally notice this. Of course DK has been stretching numbers for their $6m Legends Series. The most blatant is the $3.3m championship. It's not even remotely close to $3.3m in payouts. So where's the other $800k? ... Read More

  • This won't make you feel any better, but I hear there's some tiny DFS site that is pretty similar in scoring to FanDuel where they'll give you $100k if you break 100 points in baseball. I'm not sure which one it is. Read More
