    League of Legends. E-games they offer on DK. Basically betting on a bunch of preteens playing a video game in Korea, haha

    hahah it’s big in europe too. The EU ones are obviously the euro slates and the other ones are straight up South Korea all the way

    I guess we have an 8 man winner take all? Interesting situation for sure.

    hopefully fanduel has some decent tie breaking rules. read some situation before with draftking where tie breaker was whoever entered the lineup the earliest.

    NHL basics – 1) choose a winning goalie (leftwinglock.com or app)

    2) target teams with struggling goalies or teams with bad defense for you c/w/d players

    3) choose players with high minutes/game. Gen min 20 min/game and also players that play on the power play for that easier chance of scoring. Also look for players with high shots on goal, you get points for each shot, even if it doesn’t score (at least on DK, not sure about fantasy scoring on other sites)

    Thanks gonna give it a try …. need something to keep my brain busy

    Sometimes I watch the Twitch streams in Korean/Chinese just because the announcers go NUTS for every team fight. To a degree I know what’s happening, the only part that I really don’t get is the initial draft stages and how they construct their teams with certain characters. That’s a black hole to me lol

    Have access to a great free stream of the late hockey game if anyone wants it I’ll post it!

    Brutal. That’s me every night on DK by .25

    Feel for ya man. Hope you didn’t lose too much scratch :D

    I haven’t looked too far into it yet, but I just took a look and the sharps usually play the second highest $ TEAM or the bottom depending on how the $ works and how bad the bottom team is.

    I’ve been getting torched, especially last night with rediculous 2-0 upsets of both underdog. Whole thing with JAG and AFS is they actually blow, and they were playing equally bad teams. I should’ve known it was a tossup either way.

    PM if you’d like me I don’t want to bog down the NBA thread with LOL talk again haha. Let’s kill this slate!

    Just sent you a pm

    Going to try Hockey for the next week while NBA is on break. Maybe I can do better even though I know nothing about Hockey…

  • KindGuy

    Yep I started my annual transition to hockey on Tuesday with that awful NBA slate. Gonna start taking NHL more seriously. DK starts to increase the hockey prize pools this time of the year because of the NBA all star break.

    They have a lock out round where each player chooses a character that can’t be played (usually one that the other team is strong at) then have a draft where each player picks their character to play with for the round. Sometimes they end up with someone they’re good at, other times they get screwed and have to play a crap character.

    Key to NHL DFS is stacking players who skate on the same line and preferably skate together on the Power Play

    Sometimes I’ll take a guy solo if he’s on even strength1 and pp1. Like a Conor McDavid.

    Great matchup too. Bunch of ball hogs out there in Indiana.

  • satchmo77

    It’s just hard to go into a sport you know nothing about and players you know nothing about. I’ve been getting shredded at soccer just Bc I like the day action lol. Don’t know if I can do NHL. Something tells me I’ll come around lol.
