  • ChipotleAddict and papagates Suspect GPP Ownership

    I do not see a presumption of guilt at all. The person who started the thread astutely observed anomaly in the data and wanted an explanation. Optimizers are old technology, most people understand how they work as they are used widely before DFS even exist... Read More

  • ChipotleAddict and papagates Suspect GPP Ownership

    Thanks for the kind words and fully agree that there is too much focus on chasing the big prizes. Give me lower rake, innovative game styles, proportional pay structure and clean game. If that is smaller contests and single entry that is fine. Keep an eye ... Read More

    Indeed, there is a lot more platforms out there and innovation in this space has not stopped. The power resides with the customer and the better informed we are the best for most of us as well. Read More

    I am not flogging anything and hardly post on the forum anymore or on this subject. Just posted to share the academic research and presentation done which includes some of the topics being discussed on the thread. You can read or watch or ignore it or you ... Read More

  • ChipotleAddict and papagates Suspect GPP Ownership

    I find it amazing that people can be so blase about game integrity, you are the customers of the platforms and as such vote with your wallets if they can not keep a CLEAN game. Anyone that can not look at the bigger picture and thinks game integrity does ... Read More

    Orwellian and Daily Fantasy I never imagined will be said together. Any marketplace where a large money is being exchanged is open to corruption and collusion. Hence why we have regulations and laws to protect the customer/consumer. Entry limits are enforc... Read More

  • NBA, 1/10

    It truly depends on the sport, for some having a tight core makes a lot of sense for others you can spread out your plays. For NBA, having fewer line-up's with a tight core and supporting pieces makes a lot of sense. You want to capture all the upside in o... Read More

    If you watch the whole presentation/read the whole article then you will see it all, cash games and GPP. Actually, they also use regression to model what opponents will do in tournaments. They plan to do further academic research on the subject and one to ... Read More

    @ Njsum1 There is no secret sauce be it a professional DFS player or just doing it casually. Sharing information and participating in discussion is a great way to use the wisdom of the crowd approach in aggregating the dispersed information. At best we all... Read More

  • NFL, Wild Card Round

    Depends on the ownership % These small slates are all about leverage and if you find it go ahead. If "(player-popup #melvin-gordon)Melvin Gordon":/players/melvin-gordon-21773 is owned under 10%, he makes a great play considering his upside and potential le... Read More

    This is the aspect most people miss, like any craft it will take time before we get better and master it. Reviewing line-up's and seeing where we can improve or have improved is good process. Read More

    Am I missing something here ? What are they fighting with England about ? Think Yahoo is just happy being a mid sized platform and sleeping on expanding internationally with their fantasy platform. If they can spend this much on overlaying contests then su... Read More

  • NBA, 12/31

    I think in general people greatly underestimate randomness in life, let alone randomness and variance in sports. When we win big, were we just plain lucky and randomness ? Or was it a skilled LU construction ? Or both ? When we win lose, then most dismiss... Read More

    DK just treating their customers like fools, they increase entry fee just to make sure they get that rake. I will skip it out of principle. What business will people tolerate that changes its prices daily ? Play on Yahoo if you can. Read More

    I just play one LU for NBA, then repotimize that LU with each breaking news till all the games lock. I have no idea how people can play multiple LU's and then handle all the team news nonsense. Think one has a better chance of taking NBA GPP by focusing on... Read More

    Game Integrity!!! If people think game integrity on a platform is compromised and the platforms lack the will power to take action. Then stop and move on, smaller platforms take game integrity seriously and so play there. Amazing how people try to sweep g... Read More

  • NFL, Week 16

    Yes, they lose tons and they can not control the variance. But what they do is they make sure the odds of winning these top heavy contests are tilted in their favor if they working as a syndicate to circumvent the entry limits. I do not think they only one... Read More

  • NFL, Week 16

    The platforms have rules against collusion and syndicate play, the rules sound clear to me and the question is whether they have the will to enforce their rules or will they sleep walk to another legal action. We all know what happened previously and lesso... Read More
