    Let’s talk about the games and some plays,

    I think I’m going away from Russell today he is so expensive, I will play a few Baylor Wrs however

  • Rosterdamus

    Actually they took Mahomes out after one series in the 2nd half. Like as soon as I made that post about Kingsbury keeping the starters in and wanting me to win, he pulled them all, and I had like 6 Tech players on teams that landed right around the bubble, specifically one 6/50. And I think John Stockton would have had a better game than Justin Stockton. And Mack was that one USF player I also started so that also hurt me on several teams.

  • Rosterdamus

    I’m mad at myself for forgetting about Courtland Sutton since I had success playing him last year. If you look at their depth chart though, he’s not even listed. They have Eric Sutton listed who I imagine is his little brother or cousin, but who I did confirm is a separate and distinct person.
    Also on an interesting note, I don’t think I saw anybody play Cooper Kupp. If you’d played Sutton and Kupp you’d have been rock solid with just about any random smattering of guys around them.

    I called Tulsa being a sleeper this year, and even think they can beat Ohio st. next week. I love their 3 WR’s and they even lost Keyarris Garrett. But i couldn’t play them vs. that secondary, SJSU as #2 in the nation last year in pass D. Next week OSU is gonna be tough too but after that they will put up video game #‘s. That why I went with the RB, but last year I was burned when one played more than the other and I picked wrong.

    Mahomes is always solid. Same with Falk, it’s really never a bad move to use him, cause that coach never runs.

  • nickrock23

    Yeah, that name is familiar though, I think I played Kupp last year at some points.
    I hit on Sutton half the times, so I stopped playing him. Lazard never lets me down. That team stinks and he’s their only weapon. And Marks is always a must play for me. I considered Lewis, Kyle Sweet and Cracraft too.

  • Rosterdamus

    Those were my 2 in the late slate. I think it’s funny that Ohio State was SOOOOOOO hyped last year and looked so mediocre against so many mediocre teams. This year most analysts I’ve seen aren’t even predicting them to beat out Michigan for the Big10, and of course they come out and put up a video game 77. I understand It’s Bowling Green, but still last year I think they would have stumbled through a game like that 28-13 or so.

    of this manny clown runs it in here i am going to bed. this is ridiculous that i am even sweating this out with these 2 guys

  • nickrock23

    if Bellage rips a 75 yard run I will sleep like a baby tonight . 13 pts from the lead

    How was the site and action on fanpicks?

  • BabyBuster

    Honestly was pretty smooth. Biggest issue was the types of games offered. The Top 3 / Top 5 BS was pretty annoying.

    Ended up winning $15 which was pretty frustrating. Lots of 4/5 finishes in top 3s and 6/7 finishes in top 5s. Was 100% in on Barrett / Sutton / Brewer but had lots of misses. Not thrilled w Jordan Leggett.

  • nickrock23

    I also have my share of 4/5/6 finishes and it’s frustrating. I’ve been saying since day 1, they need to just add a Top 10, Top 15, Top 20. and increase sizes. I try to only do top 5 if it’s 25, top 3 if it’s 15. I don’t mind doing the others but it would be nice to have more options. Like I said, it causes more people to win when you have big 20% winners, therefore more people will keep playing. It is nice though, that when you win, it’s a pretty significant hit. I will give them that. These games aren’t impossible. But you have to do the research. I didn’t do as well yesterday because obviously there were guys who did better research than me. Which is so important that first week.

    The site held up well too. I felt like it wanted to crash a few times and got itself back on it’s feet. The scores were a little slow to update, but not bad. Overall I am satisfied and thankful.

    I like how when you view the contest now, if you mouse over an opponent’s LU in the standings, it will generate a little black box with the players they have that are still live. What would be great is if they made that black box pop up in your “live” contest tabs, cause I have so many different combinations it’s hard to keep track of what contests I have, which ones are still good, which ones are dead.. etc.

    Leggett screwed a lot of people. I missed out on 3rd place in the 100 by 2 tenths of a point. and I owned him in most.

    I sent them an email about this yesterday. They wrote back that they are changing the payout structure for games in week 2 and to expect contests that pay the top 10-15%.

  • nickrock23

    That’s good news. I will still play the Top 3 in 25 and top 5 in 100, but I will probably be focusing on the top 10 or 15 in the 100’s. In a top 15 I would probably multi-entry as well. Like we discussed before, it’s pointless to multi-entry a Top3 in a 25 field.
    At the same time, someone was pointing out how multi-entry guys who flood contests kind of ruin the games too so this would be a good medium, and also offering both gives you options.

  • mvanderk10

    I wish they would change the roster layout to match draft kings…That was ultimate in my opinion, some people might not agree.

  • Dadeano860

    Sounds ok. I’ll give it a try week 2. Not ideal, but not being able to play NCAA was just depressing. I could barely watch the games and look at the box scores without serious nostalgia from last couple years playing on fanduel. I hope this is a 1 year, temporary suspension from the big sites

  • 100rings

    hey guys they are going to 10% rake on all H2Hs and 50/50s this coming up week! For their efforts lets give them some action, good for them to make that change and listen to the community which is us. Also said they will be doing some better tourneys, more spread out payouts.

    NickRock… I had some horrrrrrrible plays last night :( But the ECU QB saved me and I was able to profit… He was good enough for Benkurt to leave and go to Virginia and also they gave up the Running QB, they named Nelson the starter a while back so I knew that he was legit, had good receivers, and was playing an inferior opponent. They play NC State next week though and his price will go up so I wouldnt play him next week.

    yup, and I agree DK’s LU layout is the best of the bunch – but on DK, I do think the contests that are either Live or upcoming should be listed as the default. A while back I asked them to take the LU’s off, cause they show up for days and it’s a big mess, and they added a filter but the filter defaults to every LU you have – completed, live and upcoming. Completely pointless.

    For FD it’s not bad but I don’t like how it doesn’t give you the scores of each player if you view entries by LU. You have to click it again and then you lose site of the other LU’s you have.

    But FP is the worst as far as tracking LU’s. What I used to do in DK for CFB was, if a player scored, I would go to the LU page, then for a control+F for that player and then track those. On FP, you have to click on each box and then it’s like totally guessing which contest is which. I had a zillion LU’s the other day and had no clue what was going on.

    But maybe this will force me to go 100% on more guys. I think one of my weaknesses last year was mixing it up too much trying to hit the big payday in the large GPP’s. Like the big $3 DK contests I would do 20-30 LU’s easy every slate. Last year was my first time doing DFS, and I didn’t do any 50/50 or H2H last year and I was rarely in the bottom 50% in those contests so I was probably dumb not to do more heads up stuff.

    Well, I am just so happy to be able to play CFB, this and CBB are my favorite by far.

    That’s good news about them going to 10% on H2H and 50’s. I did see a $9 prize on a $5 but when I clicked on it, it said $8.50 1st place. Maybe they were testing it.

    I did recognize the name, that guy transferred to RU (I live 15 min from the stadium), was surprised he was still allowed to play after that bar fight incident. But those receivers he has are legit and it’s a good system. NC State will be a tougher opponent though.

    Watching this ND game, OT is like hitting the jackpot in CFB, all those extra points. Can’t wait to get one of those 4 OT games !

    Dane Evans is not beating OSU or any decent team. They do have impressive skill position talent, but Evans is just terrible.

  • nickrock23

    Yeah in the highschool FB site I post on, I said same thing a month ago.. “I am not a Dane Evans fan but….”
    Justin Hobbs, Josh Atkinson, Keevan Lucas…
    D’Angelo Brewer, Ramadi Warren .. I don’t know if that’s good recruiting or good development but they are loaded.

    Remember too, they have Chad President. He looked like Joe Webb last year. If Evans goes down, I wonder do they actually improve? The WR’s #‘s will go down as he will be running all over the place, but they might be better off cause Dane makes a lot of bad decisions. Next week will be a huge test, especially being that it’s in the horseshoe.

    I agree, if they benched Dane Evans they would definitely improve. Like last year when Brewer got buried on the bench behind Langer. Langer was so slow and bad. That was frustrating. Coach must be especially loyal or like veterans.

    Fri Slate is up, just 2 games – Lville/Cuse and FIU/MD

    I don’t see Malik Williams for Louisville?

  • nickrock23

    Yeah I made one LU so far and had him. but I will probably use the other guys as well. I wouldn’t be shocked if McGough or Dungey outscored Jax. Theoretically I think Hills could too but they’re more of a run-first offense these days. Even tho his price is too low it’s so difficult picking a WR to stack him with. Last year I pretty much used him anytime Lville was a on a slate, but I tried to use Staples and Quick and Peete and I don’t think I ever got it right. I would just hope that he ran it in and use other WR’s I knew were dependable, and then hope my opponents didn’t get it right. There are at least 10 WR’s worth playing in those 2 games and I don’t think any are layups to be in the top 4 scoring wise.
