I like many was thrilled when CFB came back but I have to say the last couple weeks that the slates have been lackluster at best. Last week, the most entertaining game of the week (TT vs Houston) wasn’t even involved in the afternoon slate at DK, which only had like 4 or 5 games on it! That game only was available in Showdown…ugh.
I saw people complaining about the 16 game slate the first Saturday being too much and I have to completely disagree with this. This creates a lot more variance, and we all had to do a ton of researching in a short amount of time because CFB had JUST came back.
Now all I see is 10 games or less on the Main slates and very heavily owned players as a result. Half the games are usually a blowout or low scoring so everyone is focusing on like 2 or 3 games for the majority of their lineups. Let’s create some more variance!
I am well aware most conference play hasn’t started but going into next week I hope we can come up with 13-15 game slates at least. How hard would it be to come up with a Main slate (games starting between 12-5 ET) and Night slate (games starting at 6 or after)?
And for everyone complaining about too many games…I cringe at this. DFS has became so watered down anymore that players literally have no idea how to set a lineup on their own (for the most part). The “skill” factor in this is getting lower and lower and it’s tough to swallow as a DFS veteran.
This “rant” has nothing to do with the prize pools…I think they will go up in time but IMO we have to make interesting enough slates so that guys will be interested more then just throwing in a quick lineup or two.
Please add more games to the CFB slates going forward. Thank you for your time.
