    How does that work – more than 5 but no result = ???? For DFS

    If the game gets called no points awarded what so ever for the game. If a game doesn’t finish now, doesn’t matter what inning it’s called in. All players will recieve a 0.

    Wade Miley carrying me. Love him at 0.8%. So scared of weather.

    Somehow he is at 3.3% in the single entry Bunt on FD. I actually left 4200 on the table and used him over Thor. :-)

    I’ve got Cesar Valdez in the late slate with $4500 left over…I assume everyone and their mother will be on Paxton.

    Apparently I know nothing about baseball right now…the hitters and scores I’ve been putting up are embarrassing…may be time to take a few days off…

    Me too…I don’t know what a good spot for a hitter looks like. I usually miss on two of them. Last 2 days I can’t get any of them right.

  • fanturds

    At some point, it makes sense to take a shot on the worst play possible if you have money you don’t need…..at least for pitching, and low stakes GPP.

    Sad to see Youdacao maxing out the Night QA on DK with 35 entries for the top prize of 36.25$. Leave some scraps on the table for the bottom feeders you douche. CZYX too. That’s 70 entries right there.

    Looks like most of my entries are the same or similar as the bulk of Youdacaos. Maybe I should just max out too.

    Are you sure about this? The wording in Fan Duels rules are worded ambiguously. (haven’t checked DK yet). Seems to me it means that you would get points up till the time it was called. I am hoping we don’t find out the hard way and the game finishes!

    “Rules for how suspended games are treated vary depending on the sport and game type. A game is considered suspended if it is unfinished, but to be completed in the future. At a minimum, the statistics compiled prior to the end of the contest period will count towards contests… For one day MLB contests, if the game is suspended until a future date, points accumulated in the remainder of the game will not count towards contests.”

    Agreed. Ranked #2 overall and he needs to dumpster dive in Quarter games. You’ll see ThatStunna in there every night as well. Those guys are super greedy.

    Dirt.. you def need to max enter!! I know you’d do well. Load up on your fave team every day in 50 LU’s and rotate mini stacks around it. It’s a little uncomfortable doing this sometimes, but if you do, you are shooting at a stationary target every day and not a moving target. If you follow this advice I can almost 100% guarantee you some nice scores this season.

    Nice Myers.

    I went with 100 percent Myers, so I feel validated.

    Unfortunately, the rest of my action didn’t pan out.

    Perhaps he will go Bryce?

    Why are they greedy? They play to make money. That $35 is money for a satellite to a bigger game, and up they go the ladder.

    That being said I think it is the single biggest problem in DFS and will eventually be the downfall unless the sites figure out a way for the new/ casual player to sustain a bankroll.

    Is Andrew Cashner mowing clowns down?

    ahh man, I actually nearly won 1st last night in the 3$ single entry but was killed by Springer and McCann going 1-8 (and by bryce the double dong specialist himself). Won 40$ on 3, then loaded up and won the LOL QA on DK for another 30$ or so so now that my bankroll is over 110 I could easily do it and not feel concerned about it. Could lose every entry a few times and still not feel horrible about it I guess lol. Good to have some room to work with.

    Tonight was a weird slate seeing it play out. I am not familiar with the A’s starter and that had me a bit weary initially. At this point I’m glad I didn’t go in heavier. Most of my entries are Seattle/D Backs stacks. Have a few Padres/Mariners stacks which have Myers with the dinger but they don’t have that dude Nick Ahmed. I would’ve had some Ahmed with more entries but I have less than 10 entries. Went with all Motter and Owing as SS. Ahmed has 10 after that steal and boom. Unless Motter or Owings bomb then I won’t have the optimal lu. So that blows.

  • Cdmjlt369

    They really need to figure out how to keep pros from doing that. It is annoying. I entered a 100 man $1 tourney three other night scored a 172 and didn’t cash. Looked through it and saw several pros at the top. Go figure.

    Firemedic, are you saying that firepimps statement is incorrect and points would be awarded for the Bal/Cin game if it was suspended in a tie in the 10th?

    I would email FD and DK to ask but i have learned the people here are about 1000 times more reliable.

    Thumper Thames at it uhhhhhgain!!!

  • SkateFiend

    Eric Thames is either legit or MLB pitchers aren’t challenging him with fastballs.

    They throw tons of breaking balls in the KBO.

    He got hit with the same railroad in the slate with the Myers knock. Looks like he doesn’t have any. Looks like he didn’t stack the Padres at all lol

  • Noluhh

    Time to test Thames.

    If you had instead done that $3 line up as a $12.50 LU in the QA and slightly varied each by 1-2 spots you probably would have won first.

    KC stack not looking good

    Exactly. That was weighing on me last night while making lus for LOL. Wishing I maxed out there, only had 14 lus with 25 max. I also had one train that didn’t end up hitting. Was just glad to have one at the top. Always cool to see the #1 finish. Hitting the optimals there I can do but there are lots of sharps there too. Sometimes it comes down to getting all game theory on yourself and trying to differentiate to win straight up which doesn’t always work.

    It’s greed when you are high stakes nosebleed player who has tens of thousands of dollars (probably hundreds of thousands) and still jockeying to snatch up an extra 35 bux from the micro players. Nobody NEEDS that much dough. There’s enough to go around. I don’t mind playing vs him and That Stunna. I am perfectly happy with my results vs them in QA. It’s just I have a philosophical difference of opinion than them on the topic which causes me to want to call that type of behavior out onto the table.

    Greed: intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth.

    As long as an MLB game has gone past a full five innings the game and all stats will count because MLB considers it an official game. It could be 6 innings but I’m pretty sure it’s 5 innings.
