      RG Tiered Ranking

    Over the last week I have noticed trains in single entry 50/50s these trains always have the same logo. They are at times 25% of the field so much so that they dictate cash lines, normally I could care less but this is so freaking blatant how is action not being taken take a look at the last couple of days:

    https://www.fanduel.com/games/20730/contests/20730-210881623/entries/1254348888/scoring

    https://www.fanduel.com/games/20706/contests/20706-210864249/entries/1254003171/scoring

    https://www.fanduel.com/games/20691/contests/20691-210841978/entries/1253377446/scoring

    This is beyond coincidence, if this was a major site logo with RG or something people would be irate. I do not understand how fan duel allows this to go on when it is beyond blatant. When you play 50/50s you are looking for an average but right now 50/50s on FD are basically head to heads against whatever lineup that service plays. So I am done playing Fanduel 50/50s until this problem is rectified and I would encourage everybody else to do the same. Play the guranteed large field double ups its the same thing as long as Fanduel refuses to enforce their own rules

    It’s common sense. What would CSURAM88 or any other pro gain by giving out their exact model?

    They could gain a ton of money if the model is good and helps enough people win to get a lot of subscribers. Look at the AC group if they can get 1000+ people to pay $80 a month why wouldn’t any pro sign up to do the same thing. I would think they would love to bank $100,000+ a month risk free vs. keeping the model to themselves so they can risk their bankroll to try and win money each month.

    It seems like the smartest move a pro could make it play enough to win and get themselves well known and then leave playing DFS to sell their model or do training in order to secure a guaranteed income.

    Not only does Fanduel allow this, they even reward the guy for doing it!

    CSURam has his own model on FantasyLabs, why would he need Hoop2410 to run his lineup for him.

    no its hoop who uses the same team as csu, birdwings and about 5 others not complaining just saying no one complains about anyone but karma

  • mambaland

    another point is that people think that some legal people will get involved or something if they post on RG. This site is genius as it contains everyone and we all think the world is watching what we post. Much like blasting on twitter thinking someone actually cares

    They already gain a ton of money from subscribers. It’s all about marketing. People see a recognizable name like CSURAM88 and stupidly think they’re going to have the same success he has had because they’re using his model.

    RotoQL is another example. When it first started people honestly thought they’re were using the same factors/projections as the #1 ranked player in the world. As it turned out they were basic baseline projections.

    Lmao wow

    Well, it looks like I took my roll off FanDuel a week too early. Based on twitter responses, these guys have gone ice cold over the past week. Cashing must be easy with 30% of the field getting crushed with the same lineup.

  • titans2017

    If the source of the problem has been around for a while, pool together some money, purchase the lineups, and then post them for free EVERYWHERE. His subscribers would no longer have a reason to purchase the lineups plus the rest of us could target weaknesses in the lineups.

  • cpleone

    Looks like their NFL lineup was a 104.56 for Sunday. Checked the $2 big double up on FD and they had a little over 3,000 entries out of 45k (and actually landed right on the cash line with that score.)

    I checked some of the $2 50/50’s I was in and didn’t see more than 2 entries with that lineup in any of them (in admittedly a small sample size)

    so absurd

    they send him random care packages to make sure he’s happy and continues to flood the site with his lineups?

    The top two lineups in the $3 Moonshot on DK are literally the same except each guy ran one of the two Minny SS… Seems like a pretty strong case of collusion could be made given they both ran the same 5 Philly players and only differentiated in a position that had two plays you would for sure want exposure to if you stacked Minny.

  • Babelito84

    What we all are failing to grasp is the sites do not care! They love the $ and consistent action and need as much $ as possible to stay afloat. You play knowing this is what you’re up against along with 10-15% rake and algorithms and cheaters. No different than the stock market and expense ratios and 12b-1 fees etc.

    Hope they enjoy chopping their winnings 26 ways. Still don’t know why people do this in GPP, they’ll never take it down solo.
