    Dude’s been on a milk carton it seems for the most part in the DFS world recently.

    He is going to lose his player of the year status if he keeps this trend up, if he even cares about that anymore.

    Is he working on some more longer term projects such as building a new algorithmic analytical data model?

    Is he building his own daily fantasy sports website?

    Has MaximusDalury found a new industry to begin dismantling?

    So Saahilsud disappears at the same time Tom Dwan resurfaces. Hmmm…

    He’s 54th.. but I agree, he’s a beast. Seems like a really nice dude, too.

    To be completely honest, the best DFS player (in my mind) is Awesemo. Dude just absolutely crushes. It seems like every time I throw a lineup into a $300+ entry he wins it.

    I have to agree with this. awesemo is so incredibly good. I see this guy at the top of the leaderboard CONSTANTLY.

    If your lineups are focused, you will lose most of the time but occasionally destroy a tournament. If you spread your lineups out, you have a better chance of taking first place on any given day but you will not maximize your profit when your lineups hit.

    I swear it seems at times like awesemo has everything covered, yet he will take 5 out of the top 10 spots.

    SquadQL is the reason why Saahil took t easy recently

    It was maxdalury. Ever since he decided to market himself with his real name it’s been real downhill.

    Thanks, I got Condia and Maxdalury mixed up.

    Nope. I am both a fan of football and food. It is combining the delicious entree (Pigs In a Blanket) with Football (Pigskin).

    For those of us not familiar with “pig-in-a-blanket” it is an appetizer made of sausage wrapped in some time of pastry; croissant dough, biscuit dough, thick pancake mix. They are either baked or fried. … The sausage (originally pork) represents the pig and the covering, whatever it’s made of is the blanket

    He needs to update the RotoQL site which still shows him as the number 1 ranked overall player.

    His baby RotoQL still baffles me when I get the Monday morning email from “Mike at RotoQL” to tell us how EASY it is to win the DK milly maker if you just used RotoQL. The emails are so asinine in that “Mike” basically just looks at the scores the next day, then uses mumbo jumbo (written in heavy DFS buzz words) as to if you just did XYZ and used the RotoQL tool – you’d be a millionaire now.

    For those who don’t get these emails(I think I tried a free trial once), he said there were only “3 steps to create the million dollar lineup on RotoQL” this past week (some weeks Mike says it takes 4 or 5 steps):
    1-Lock in Cam Newton and Greg Olsen
    2-Like Todd Gurley, Keelan Cole and Rob Gronkowski (Mike loves saying “strong punt play”)
    3-Generate 1 optimized lineup and voila – YOU ARE A MILLIONAIRE

    I’d be shocked if anyone takes this seriously given it’s much easier to look back the next day and show how you back in to the high score on the milly maker. To that end, ANY lineup optimizer can review the scores Monday and devise how you would have won the MM with their software.

    Serious question – have any of the milly maker winners the last year or two used RotoQL? I’d think the way “Mike” puts it, everyone just needs to sign up and you become rich, so I’m curious if anybody who uses RotoQL have won the MM. I mean wouldn’t Mike from RotoQL just win the MM each week and follow his own advice?

    I have this thought every week. I just swipe left and delete “Mike’s” emails. Complete garbage.

    I wonder if Awesomeo or youdacao can sue him for false advertisement. He’s no longer 1 (or even top 5 and will probably drop out of the top 20 soon), so for him to use the #1 as advertisement seems like he could be liable.

    It’s clear the website sucks, and he’s not good, but suckers continue to give them money so…

    and he’s not good

    lol, what’s more clear is that you don’t seem to know what you’re talking about.

    Never been to his website; it’s just beyond absurd to say he’s not good at DFS.

    lol he’s down over a million to two million this calendar year…but you probably just like to look at rankings. You can calculate his ROI pretty easily. All the results are available here on resultsDB or on fantasylabs.

    I can show you how to do this if you would like. You can do it yourself. Go to like the 1500 tourney today and check out what each players ROI is. Let’s just say all of the top pros will get a “boost” in their ranking (if 1/100 or however many entries can cash the 1500 that’s a boost in ranking given how high stakes it is), but most of the ones that will get a “boost” actually have a -ROI today.

    Let’s just say I would not be surprised if he’s overall down from DFS if you include the tax he had to pay on his winning years. You think he would take a huge break from DK during football and lower all his volume if he kept on winning a lot? Why would you give up printing money? Oh because he’s actually losing money…

  • superstars92

    Oh yea I mean I thought everyone knew this. At least everyone in the golf forum knew this. He was ranked like top 5 in golf for a long time, but every single week, almost all of us would beat him H2H. It’s because when you max enter everything and especially max enter the higher entry tourneys where the points are weighted more, and you get credit ONLY for your “top” cash, you can lose money but build a high ranking.

    Like everyone in the golf forum was beating him H2H every week, but he was top 5 “ranked” in golf. He also chose Rory McIlroy every week, so yea….

    Let’s just say I haven’t seen him in golf in a long time, despite the fact he was top 5 “ranked.” I kinda miss him though. Hope he posts some more H2Hs in the future.

    He’s a good guy though. I’ve seen his interviews. Seems very humble and down to earth, so I wish him nothing but the best.

  • NoLimits0

    Yep too many people don’t know facts. They just hear a story and then it blows up. Facts are easy to find out. Numbers don’t lie. Just run the numbers. It’s all public.

  • jokerswild22

    Agreed on his skill level.

    He’s not good.

    He just out bankrolled people. His h2h’s were free money. He quickly went away when 500 entry max went to 150. Not a knock on him personally but is what it is, he doesn’t know sports. Just numbers.

  • SA16

    Saahil is a great player and he should come back and play H2H NHL again

  • mambaland

    rake got to high for him as it does most eventually

  • Flotastic

    Yep, he said RAKE was too high and ENTRY LIMITS are out of whack

  • jokerswild22

    ENTRY LIMITS are out of whack

    aka he needed 500 lines to be good.

    I wish he would. One of few guys I could consistently beat last year. I was 29-30 against Testosterown over the 59 nights that I kept record. Bear in mind, I am (or was) a losing player. (I’ve had a good run with the new Pick’Ems). The moral of the story is that the rankings don’t mean much to me — insofar as the NHL is concerned. The best cash players don’t make the list while just about any one of them would probably take Testosterown nearly two-thirds of the time. SaahilSud, most certainly, more often.

    rankings are meaningless for all sports

    they’re calculated by using a player’s top finish in the big GPPs

    cash games are totally ignored, and many GPPs are also

    The top 50 or so is just people maxing out the entries in the GPPs that get counted.

    If you play 1-3 lineups in GPPs or just play cash, you won’t be ranked highly.

    Saahil lost quite a lot of money playing DFS and quit, but he played more than anyone when he was active. Thus the rankings.

  • Roma315

    Always knew the guys who entered the higher cost tourneys lineups got better rankings due to the weight of those cashes. Figured he was good but that explanation explained a lot.

    I saw an interesting article recently where they were attempting to copy the shark strategies and Awesemo came up. They analyzed his results for like a month and it didn’t seem like he was that good. He was only on the leaderboard because he plays so much and the leaderboard doesn’t penalize you for losing. They also call out SahiilSud a bit.

    Edit: the article was from creativedfs.com. it was called emulating dfs shark strategies.
