    Welcome to the forums gasface. I believe there are a couple of sites still offering but none of the major operators are. I would warn against playing too much on some of these niche smaller sites unless you have someone that can vouch for them.

    fanpicks is offering CFB….can’t say I feel great about it, but I tossed $50 in it week 1 and it fills the void of losing my favorite sport on DK and FD a little.

    I looked at is as if I never see a dime,it was the price to pay to play a sport i really enjoy.

    Not vouching for them by any means, but I haven’t had any issues other than pretty bad pricing….

  • ColonialRampage

    Fanpicks is running a decent number of contests, but is having quite a few issues getting up to speed.

    Draftworld seems to be running a good product, but there isn’t very much action there.

    I am playing on fan picks. Put $50 in and won $165 week one and cashed out the $50 I put in so am now just playing on profits. Got my deposit in my account in 7 days. They seem to be trying to improve every week. I don’t mind playing there at all

    Fanpicks and Draftworld are legit, there is obviously a small player base at this point hopefully that will grow. As far as the sites go they are trying to implement the features we are used too such as import export asap so we just have to be patient. I put $500 in, I doubt they take my money I am not worried. Good luck!

    They let you cash out? I read some others had serious issues with cashing out and they were calling the site s scam. I stayed away for that reason, but Am really missing CFB.

  • nickrock23

    I think those people were complaining cause they signed up using promo code $ and won a few hundred and tried to withdraw his bonus funds or something and it doesn’t work like that. Sort of like when you get a $25 match from fanduel and they pay you 50 cents at a time when you play. It’s all a gimmick.

    fanpicks changed up the starting lineup req this week. They went from 1 QB, 3 RB, 4 WR, 1 TE to 2 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 FLX, 1 TE

    Anyone playing have any thoughts? Now sure I like the change 2 weeks in….that said, seems like they continue to be working to improve the product. While I didn’t love the switch, seems like my bank account did…having a pretty good week so far. I’ll let everyone know about the withdraw process after this week.

  • 100rings

    Only real issue with the site is no export feature and no good lineups page which is you are a high volume player not having these 2 things can bite you in the ass. Also just not much action on the site yet, wish they could advertise and get more players. Gets tiring playing same 2 or 3 people every week.

  • nickrock23

    what’s up miller time, that change took place last week. You had some good LU’s today….
    Lokisun is really good, he beats me often, but he had Matt Davis in a LU.. that dude got hurt 2 weeks ago, he’s done for the year. Weird.

    now look at me, in 2nd, the guy in front has the idential LU save for 1 player. I have Reggie Davis who was a logical play and he has some backup scrub for FLORIDA
    Now Davis was low owned too, but another guy in the top 5 had him with a different LU.. all his picks are totally logical. But this guy I feel like somehow got inside my brain , changed one pick who on paper appeared to be a reach, and replaced him with a guy even a novice wouldn’t pick at that price. Yup, sounds Kosher!

    I consider myself a good player, so how did he come up with that LU (nearly identical to mine) , but manage to spend 5000 on Brandon Powell LOFL.. That is literally the worst play I’ve ever heard of. A monkey could throw a dart and make a better pick at least Reg Davis has gone off before. Brandon Powell? Really? How the F do you have 8 out of 9 players identical to me anyway? I could give you all 18 players to pick from and not one would have 8 of 9.

  • nickrock23

    Seriously AceCracker, please come fwd and explain how you got my near perfect LU with Brandon Powell…

    hahaha yeah i did see that nick, I thought that was wild…we had a lot of the same players but i didn’t have them on the same team like that person

  • UTEstevanB

    I would have defeated each of y’all on the eve slate. Should’ve entered
    https://www.fanpicks.com/view/live/58318/3

  • UTEstevanB

    I would’ve killed it had I stayed away from the early slate today. I can never quite put together the BIG GPP win. Too many second place CFB championship finishes on fanaces last year. Whoever “Gladiators” was, he always seemed to best me.

  • UTEstevanB

    CFB Championship qualifier*** huge distinction

  • vcuram00

    It was a high scoring week, I had 258 and lost some head to heads to aj/lb23 who apparently both run same lineup. My dud was the smu qb…..not sure if your line up is as close to perfect as you think utestevanb, and nick. just glad to be able to play college, made a withdraw this morning so if its in my account this week then I guess the sites legit, will post on that later.

    I had 306.97 on this LU..

    In the 50 cent 1000 entry (which FP made guaranteed , totally the classy thing to do since it got almost 800 entries) I came in 2nd, 3rd, 4th 5th 6th…. And the winner, who got me by .16 only played 1 entry!!! He posts here sometimes..

    UTE, you’re PaxB? I also didn’t do well on the early slates, i felt like later on with Webb/Dawkins and Mahomes/Haskins/Trent T that was the time to pounce. the only thing I did wrong on the later slates is not play Giles, LF and McCaff in 100%. I guess Giles is the new Jakeem Grant and McCaff is officially matchup proof. I also used a ton of Samaje who dudded and Nick Wilson who got hurt early… they always get hurt early… so i would have won a lot more if not for Wilson.

    I recognize your ID, you’re vcuram on DK too right? Gonna also withdraw some tomorrow, congrats man.

  • vcuram00

    yeah vcuram00 on everything, I played a ton on aces before, won the fafc there last year but they are out of VA now…one thing I wonder about is it would be nice for fanpicks to get rid of all these garbage games they are including, but if they do that they have to get better on the prices, right now even with the bad pricing you still get a decent amount of lineup diversity because of the large slates…they really need to adopt a FD or DK slate philosophy, with a early, late and maybe a all day. maybe a very late as well…feels like everytime I join a contest right now I have to make a new team because its a different slate.

  • nickrock23

    Yeah but part of that is kinda fun. I think 6 slates is fine… 12pm, 330, 7 (primetime) 8pm (includes late games) then a 10pm (late) which is the west coast games only like DK would do. 3 games small contests, 20-50 people, $25 games down to $1 games.
    They added a 1:30 slate sat. that I loved, unfortunately Falk didn’t work out for me on that one but I did love it on paper. I think Keevan Lucas prevented me from losing but he was 40-45% owned unfortunately.
    It gets complicated when games overlap in slates cause you might like a player on one slate, but not like him on another. I am not a fan of “all day” slates. Don’t see the need, unless its a custom slate you wanna make for the user-created games, but those are really hard to fill over 5 people it seems. They need to make those more visible.

    Nick as a UF fan It makes sense. Calloway (UF’s top receiver) was out. Powell has been starting every week. I almost picked him to assuming he’d get more targets with Calloway out.

  • nickrock23

    I just don’t like how smart the rest of his LU was considering. Didn’t seem consistent to me. There were so many better plays at that price.

    Again, they are only going with 2 out of the 3 friday night games. Not sure why they are doing that

    This was the reply from FP when I emailed them earlier today.

    Hi Fred,

    Our feed provider only provides live statistics on games that either involve a ranked team or a team in one of the 6 power conferences (SEC, ACC, AAC, Big 12, Big 10, and Pac 12). We cannot include that game as we will not have live scoring.

    Let me know if you have any further questions,
    Tyler

  • nickrock23

    damn… so that means no MACtion if neither team is ranked.. that’s unfortunate but hopefully that changes eventually. Sun Belt has some phenoms too. Conference USA, I think La Tech plays MTS this weekend, that would have been a fun game to be a part of.
