    I have no idea what to make of this. Seems like the most degenerate thing out there. Is DK really struggling that much?

    I’m a pretty big degen but even that’s a bit much for me

    Baseball is by far my favourite DFS sport, so I’m pretty excited about this actually…

    Can you play DFS in the UK or Canada? I’m assuming you’re from one of these regions because “favourite”.

  • LuckyLuc3434

    Canada, and yes, we can play all the same sports/slates.

    Not sure if it’s as big as in the US, since Canadians also have sports betting as an alternative to daily fantasy, but personally I find DFS way more fun and interesting.

    Yeah, I don’t see how that’s degenerate.
    It’s the World Series, not pre-season sports or E-sports or whatever random thing people wouldn’t be paying attention too.

    Pretty creative and it’s enticing in that fact that it’s actually new and you have to look at things in a different, creative way, which creates lots of lu variations you can go with…I’ll likely give it a try, assuming they post some low stakes contests.

    World series is a normal thing. Should make it more exciting.

  • Roma315

    Love baseball but this Idk if I can get on board…

  • makeitra1n

    Not too shocking.with the increasing rake and entry fees and now this.

    Any way to take money from people they’ll do it.the fd strategy!

  • KindGuy

    Personally, I’ll just enjoy the World Series. I don’t need to spend a few bucks to get excited about it. Would be the same case with the NBA finals or Stanley Cup.

    I was in a big contest that went off with a decent overlay.

    I’ll need a big game from the Astros tomorrow to do anything with it, but still

  • yisman

    I played

    I wanted to use Bregman today but I was just short and was forced to use Kike instead :(

    I played the $300 curveball (along with some other contests) which looked like it’d be overlay with 15/22 joined with under a minute left

    bunch of entries late, no overlay. Oh well.

    A bunch of degenerates sitting at their computer waiting to hit the enter button with 30 seconds left before lock.

    Bregman or Taylor tonight?

    It will be interesting.

    I made 2 lineups – on was Kershaw/Verlander with an assortment of whatever I could fit, I got 3 points from Barnes and nothing from Gurriel or Gattis. Kershaw was such a monster that the lineup isn’t dead.

    The other had Taylor/Turner/Bellinger with Jansen. 12 points out of Jansen was just what the doctor ordered, I got 2 of the 3 homers from last night and have a lot of salary left – so I have Verlander and Altuve/Springer/Gurriel. the people in the lead had Kershaw with the 3 HR hitters, but pretty much have to start a reliever tonight or use bench players.

  • murphstahoe

    Definitely interesting strategy currently occupying the top spots.

    Kershaw and Verlander with an assortment of 2nd tier players and one random bench warmer.

    My reaction as well

    I couldn’t afford Verlander, so I went Hill, praying dumbass Roberts would let him pitch 6

    Hill was great and he’s yanked after 4

    Unreal game

  • yisman

    top 5 cashed in the curveball

    I finished 6th

    had Kershaw/Hill

    I was cashing until Altuve/Correa went back to back. Guy behind me had both.

    Anybody playing game 6/7 slate? Wouldn’t people just chase the Dodgers since they technically have to win in order for the slate to count? I know that’s oversimplified but seems like there would be a lot of similar lineups.

  • yisman

    I haven’t played since Game 1. But yeah, that makes sense.

  • hautalak

    Looks like MLB DFS guys are going to go Dodger heavy then tonight. I’m still not going to play but it might be fun to come up with the best scenario as to how the Dodgers win with some Astros that do well mixed in.

  • Roma315

    What happens if there is no game 7?? Crazy money grab here.
