    Coors field slates can drive DFS players crazy.. 46 runs in 4 games for the Nationals. I do not like
    it at all that half the season revolves around one stadium. It is more of a problem for cash games
    you almost have no choice but to stack the field or lose. It just gets boring and takes away
    from the strategy.
    My suggestion is for the industry is to give us a choice. Similar to the way FD gives you the option
    of late swap or no late swap, they should give us the option of including or excluding Coors field.
    For example If it is a 15 game slate just give the option of a 14 game slate minus Coors.
    No matter how high the salaries go there will be a majority of Coors stacks every time the Rockies
    are at home.
    Any thoughts?

    I think it is stupid.

    Should we also give a no Kershaw slate? How about no RWB? I have an idea, a slate for only domed stadiums so we don’t need to worry about rain delays, and a no philly slate in case something weird happens with the floor again.

    No Pelfrey slates, or Latos. No PAdres slates since everyone picks on them. No Nets either, or Suns…

    The challenges of DFS are what to do with teams/ players that have such a profound effect, fade? Pay up? More than one line up?

    I love Coors slates, makes it so much more interesting.

    I understand good points.

    There, she, goes!

    There, she, COORS, again!

    This was a huge problem in the past. IMO so far this season sites have done a pretty good job with their Coors pricing. They could probably inflate those salaries a little bit more with the goal of being able to fit 2 or 3 players from Coors as part of a balanced roster seems fine.

    You do have a choice.don’t play?or play a slate that doesn’t include that game

  • Immaculate

    That is a great idea! Comparing the Coors Field abomination to superior pitchers like Kershaw is ridiculous. Kershaw’s skill is not dictated by geography. When one particular stadium reduces the break on a curveball by four inches, as studies have shown, it is a recipe for offensive onslaughts to dominate on that particular night. The entire slate becomes skewed. Opt in or Opt out for Coors, I say! Better yet, leave those games off of every slate.

    “ . . . or play a slate that doesn’t include that game”

    Unfortunately, that is not a viable option for most players whenever the “main” slate, the one with most of the large pool contests, contains the Coors game. The other “minor” slates, the ones that might not include Coors, usually include only a modicum of the contest choices as the main slate.

  • Clyde

    Pick players playing at Coors, then…

  • walkoff9

    2 weeks ago people were saying coors is overrated, ect.

    it will go off a lot, but bust a lot. even when runs are scored it wont always be the same 4 guys mashing.

    nationals have probably the best offense in the league, it wont be like this for every team that comes to town

    I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t complain about winning a couple grand instead of 15k or 50 or whatever the top main slate prize is.coors be coorsing lol.if you’re playing gpps i suggest going the opposite of what everyone is doing with coors

    Well, I think your whole post is stupid. A player plays one game. When the Rockies are on a home stand, the Coors effect warps slates for a week or more.

    And yes, sometimes Coors creates opportunities, but sometimes it doesn’t. When it doesn’t you still have to account for it, and if anything pricing the players up only makes it worse. You fade the $6k batters because you decide it’s not worth it, they’re still highly owned and can still easily go off, and then the value equation doesn’t matter. So you fit them in and have to gamble with shitty pitchers or min priced punts. It just warps everything.

    I can deal with it, I do deal with it, but if I don’t like the Coors situation on a given night I’m perfectly happy to skip a main slate to play a secondary one without that game, and I’m also perfectly happy with them making an effort to keep Coors off the main slate when they can. I’d rather forgo the occasional opportunities it creates than have to deal with it when it’s just there and there’s nothing really to exploit. It’s not something where you can ALWAYS fade it because of ownership or price. The effect is just too strong.

    Well I think you’re stupid and I am too drunk to come up with an intelligent argument.

    Honestly, I think people are just finding another reason to complain. How about getting mad at rake increases, price hikes and other things that actually affect your profitibality….. not trivial dumb shit like Coors. Cmon man!

    Guy complaining about what people are complaining about thinks people shouldn’t complain about trivial things. Either that’s ironic, or I’m really high.

    I’m not mad at all. Quite the contrary actually. Pretty funny how people get mad at Coors being on the slate. If it was so simple, then how about you stack Coors every day?

  • monaco712

    My intent was not to complain and i am certainly not mad. Merely commenting on the Coors
    dilemma, offering a suggestion, and asking what people think. Stacking Coors every day is
    exactly what I don’t want to do as I stated I think it takes away from the strategy and the entertainment.
    As stated by Immaculate it does skew the whole slate there is no debate about that.
    Of course we all just have to just deal with it but if non Coors slates were offered I would
    utilize it. In the mean time I hope they keep raising the salaries so stacking will force players
    to have to roster bottom rung pitchers.
    It is not the most pressing issue in DFS but I was interested in what other people thought.

  • madmanjayWV

    The only strategy is to win and that was heavily involved with owning NATS bats last series, so take it as a potential lesson learned..

  • tmarohl

    I don’t know about no Coors field slates. What I do know is I don’t typically play in slates that include Coors field because i always get it wrong. If I stack Coors it is a 5 run game. If I fade Coors it is a 17 run game. I pick my spots and try to avoid slates that include Coors.
