    Is there anything out there like the Draft Best Ball tournament this year?

  • periewe

    If you see you have a ticket you have a general $20 ticket that you would burn up for DK Week 2 Season Long Bestball (that you could have used for anything)….the same as you would have done for DK Week 1 Season Long Bestball.

  • periewe

    ?? DK seems to be doing the same thing. They had a Week 1 season long and are starting a Week 2 season long….not sure if they will go down to $1. Fanduel has snake drafts…

  • yisman

    week 2 is now 71% full

  • Rickytango13

    Who’s got the highest week 1 score? I have a couple in the 190s, best is 194, and I’ve seen 3 Around 200-204

    I only played the one free BB ticket DK gave me, somehow landed at 221.58 for week one. Got lucky with Allen, Jacobs, Adams, Ridley and Anderson. I doubt this team holds for the duration, but the 46 point lead over second is a nice start. In retrospect, having at least 5-10 teams would make this a lot more interesting long-term.

      RG Overall Ranking

    I’ve got 25 BB teams and my highest score is a 224.20. I had the Ryan/Ridley/Gage stack there, plus Davante, and then got lucky with Nyheim Hines.

  • yisman

    my week 1 scores range from 127.6-181.8

    I have 11 teams

    week 2 drafts closing shortly, I assume. 75% now

    my 5th $20 draft before the season, I finally got a pick better than 8th

    https://twitter.com/yisman/status/1303566037883985921

    first round: Saquon (torn ACL)
    second round: Kittle (hurt)
    third (or 4th?) round: Leveon Bell (IR)

    just found one of my other $20 teams ALSO has Saquon and Kittle, plus Jarwin to boot

    Benefit of never drafting before 8th in 10 or so attempts is that I have zero Saquon.

    I did 13 drafts and never got the #1 pick but somehow got the #2 pick a lot so I have 4/13 Saquon so him being out likely for the year isn’t ideal.

  • tprokopenko

    Did 25 drafts and took zero Barkley. Have Gage almost everywhere. He was falling to rounds 18-20 in nearly every draft. Wish the season ended after week 2 haha

    Why do the best ball tournaments not update with live scoring and standings? I entered 10 of these tournaments with the understanding that the 1st round should last until week 13. On my draftkings app it shows only week 1 scores and standings but never updated after week 2. It also shows under my recent tab and says its completed and not live, why? This is supposed to be a season long tournament and not end after the first week. Draftkings needs to fix this asap cause I certaintly didnt just waste money for my entries to get messed up over technical issues. This company makes too much money to have issues like this and why do they not even have a phone option for customer service? Only email option, which I have sent 2 emails regarding this issue and it has not been addressed whatsoever. Takes a long time for draftkings just to even respond back….id suggest dk get phone customer service or they will lose a lot of customers especially when theyre trying to break into traditional sportsbook industry.

    Your understanding is correct, and I wouldn’t get too concerned with live scoring. The only concern you should have is where you are after week 13. Not only is it “supposed” to be a season long tourney, it IS a season long tourney. You can click on the current week to see your live scoring, and I’m sure the overall standings will update soon. Money has not been wasted (yet), so just relax and root for your guys.

    You need a little patience as last week they didn’t have the standings updated until Wednesday so I would give it a day again for week 2 to be officially posted to the totals. You can see the live week scoring by clicking on any individual contest to see where your at so far for that week. This is the same way DRAFT has done best ball drafts for years so I am sure DK is following that model to allow extra time for stat corrections. Just like almost every season long league I have ever played stats are not usually official until Wednesday.

    Week 3 tournament up on DK now

    I wanted to share my best ball experience.

    I won 1 ticket playing golf and got a second ticket from DK. I was evaluating the teams and getting ready but all the talk on the NFL thread, got me to see what was going on in the draft lobby. Ive done drafts before but its been a couple years since I cared about the results. I wasnt prepared and when the guy in front of me picked my pick, I didnt realize it and got timed out before I could get someone other than on IR. Strike 1
    Then I started a mini panic because I was pissed at myself. Well the guy in front of me did it again, I caught it but wasnt happy about my pick. When I screwed up a third time on rd 10… I gave up and drafted auto….said I will get them with my second BB entry.

    The next day, I was finished with my evaluations got my cheat sheet ready… I didnt have the other ticket anymore. So I moved onto the regular week 1 contests. forgot the BB team as a lost cause. I hate this team, It isnt going to win any money, no way in hell it profits.

    End of Sunday I got 205pts (great picks by me terrible picks by computer) I am in first by 30 pts current winnings $160.07. and I see this all week long. (DK please find another way to present this info). Week 2, I extended my lead to 80pt (411.26).

    I still hate the team, still dont think it will win money.

    yeah I got stuck with D Williams on a time out, as I didnt have any Q. Lucky that was my test $1 , and lesson learned.

  • kujo33

    First draft I did autodrafted Guice and Stidham even though I had players in the queue. Also has Mack and Jarwin. Currently my best team with 392 points.

  • Straightfire118

    Bruhhhh why would people take Saquon over Zeke anyways.

  • Ndepompei

    How can I see the totals for the season? I see nothing live when games are going and now only see week 2 in results

    In My contest summary page I see the totals of I am in first and next opp Fpts.
    since my week totals were just about the same…I have no clue according to what is showing and where everyone is at.

    I can look at the standings of the contest and clicking on a name get to look at each roster but the total pts in there look like wk1. (are you as confused as me?)

    Yeah DK support doesn’t know what’s up either any message you get just says “we’re looking into it”. What a mess you’d think that’d be figured out before running massive contests.

    Try logging in through their website and not the mobile app. I was in the same situation as you with the app, it was only showing my weekly score but it wouldnt show me the overall standings and no breakdown of all my players and the points they scored. Through their website, it still doesnt show the entries as live so you’ll have to search through your recent contest history and click on whatever BB entry. Then it should show you a complete breakdown of every players points scored. Theres a tab you can click to see week 1 or week 2 and if you scroll toward the bottom of the page there is a button “View overall” that’ll show the current standings. Seems like they update it every Tuesday.

    yeah they need to fix that and build some sort of interface to track the scores. Pretty ridiculous they didn’t have this built before they went live with the massive contests.

    I am confused by what your seeing as when I look at my best ball contests on the app the standings are reflected by the season total points and then if you click on a individual contest you can see week 1 and week 2 bellow the main total leaderboard. That is the way it should be done and very similar to how DRAFT has done it for year which is the site I got used to playing Best Ball on before FanDuel bought and shut them down.
