    These guys run a great product! However, they have been overlaying big time, and I’m afraid they are going to scale back big time if the current trend continues. Can we support this site?? If not, we are stuck with two giants who don’t give a shit about us. Fantasy Draft offers rake free h2h! That’s huge for you cash guys!!! Its not filled with sharks either! They are also the one site that doesn’t offer late swap. As a busy dad, that’s a plus for me. All I read on this site are people bitching about FD and DK. Give these guys a shot!

    maybe my computer and phone suck then, but other sites work normally

    Fantasy Draft is the only reason I’ve been playing DFS as much as I have this year. Loved their NBA roster construction. Still getting use to the MLB but I’m liking it as well. Great site, def worth the time of anyone but especially smaller bankroll players. I know everyone wants to play for 20, 50, 100K 1st place prizes but when you’re going up against 100K players(or more) the chances of hitting it becomes so small it’s almost absurd to play unless you have a big bankroll. Winning smaller tourneys and building your bankroll to becoming a larger bankroll player is the way to go IMO. Plus, as someone else already said, Free rake Head to Heads. Solid site.

    just really wish they would offer some single entry GPP or some freerolls so new customers can acclimate themselves with structures and other folks lineups in contests that quasi matter

    Getting error messages today when trying to upload lineups… anyone else, or is it my fault?

  • Jvanspro

    I haven’t had a problem today.

    I just found out about this site a few days ago. They have RAKE FREE H2H! Perhaps some people don’t understand the impact of this. We all know that on DraftKings and Fanduel, only a small % of players profit in cash games. Well, on this site, roughly 50% of people will be profitable in H2H!! Not only that, but their lineup structure for MLB is so flexible, with 2 pitchers, 3 INF, 3 OF and 2 UTIL! That means that with more flexibility, there is more strategy involved, and people who are truly better than average will have a larger edge and win more!

    Anyone who is trying to grind out a bankroll should go there ASAP, I definitely will be. Imagine if most cash game players eventually made the switch to FantasyDraft, (this is very unlikely) then maybe the big 2 would be forced to lower their cash game rake only to compete with this site. Great for the players.

    The truth is cash games are not sexy to a casual fan or a new DFS player… And every tournament I have played in at FantasyDraft has had overlay with not that big of prize pools. Competing against DK and FD is just really hard.

    While the prize pool is much smaller the chances of winning are much higher. Realistically, unless you’re entering several lineups, you have very little chance of much profit on FD or DK.

    Kind of disappointing that we sold out the $10,000 homerun for FantasyDraft with like an hour to go for them yesterday, and they reward us with a SMALLER gpp today for the main slate ($7,500)

    Starting to think its best to just play on a bigger site if even with selling out the biggest GPPs means no increase the next day. Sigh.

    We will increase as they fill.

    Split day slates have not been our best so it was planned smaller based on past results.

    If demand continues like last night I can guarantee you we will raise GPPs.

    I love the rake free H2H’s offered by FantasyDraft, but it’s really obnoxious that one player reserves a spot in every MLB rake free H2H league over $25.

    Yeah it is not ideal. We are working on ways to improve that and hope to have something soon.

    Ha ha. I bet that you meant to say that “it is NOT ideal.”

    same thing happens in NHL

    and that’s for every rake free HTH regardless of money amount. From the cheapest to the most expensive.

    I’ve complained about it before and it’s why I don’t play rake free HTHs at fantasydraft anymore. Every single rake free HTH I’ve played (probably like 30 total) ended up against the same user because there was no way to avoid it.

    I’ll be glad to play them if it gets fixed.

    We know who the NHL culprit is. Enters every single contest possible on every platform it seems. Even enters the free contests on DK. If that’s not absurd I don’t know what is. Certainly not against the rules but clearly not good for the overall product. Especially on the smaller sites not named DK and FD. With the same thing happening in MLB I can see why less and less people would want to play. Just obnoxious and greedy people ruining things for everyone else and not caring.

    Agree completely.

    Really? He plays the free contests, too? That’s a hoot.

    Yup, every single time and is in there tonight. Also, completely dominates the h2h on DK even at the dollar level.

  • YoungFischer

    1) Don’t put a limit on the number of rakefree H2H available in the lobby and/or allow users to create their own rakefree games.
    2) Allow for some degree of multi-match block—either 1 per buy-in level or 1 total per slate (or both).
    3) Allow for head-to-head challenges/rematch.

    FantasyDraft will become the best destination for H2H action in the industry.

  • jjwd

    Thank you Mr. Rep for your engagement with the players here. You’ve got a good site.

  • FantasyDraft_Rep

    We appreciate feedback both good and bad.

    We will find a solution but it will take some time to be implemented. Like all IT projects it needs to be slotted against other ongoing stuff.

  • CJtheGrump

    I’m in.

    Roster construction on the site will take a little getting used to but it looks good.

  • YoungFischer

    Cash game grinders, do not underestimate the value of rake free H2H.

    Obviously you save a ton of cash in rake over time. But also it removes the “wedge” created by the rake that makes most tiny two or three game slates -EV for most players. Huge overlap doesn’t hurt any more. Even if you only differ by one roster spot, either you or your opponent are guaranteed to have an edge.
