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

    Anyone else have the full falcon stack in best ball? Ryan, Julio, Gurley, Ridley, and Gage?

    After doing like 6 drafts now I think the sweet spot is RB, WR, RB, RB to start your draft. I’ve grabbed Julio twice and Gurley 3-4 times. I think I have Fournette on 5/6 teams as he and Gurley seem to be my RB2 and RB3/Flex all over the place.

    I’ve yet to grab Ridley because he is getting drafted way earlier than I’d like and usually find myself grabbing a WR2 a few slots after he is gone.

    I’ve also waited on QB in every draft so I’ve missed on Ryan but was able to grab ARod in round 12 twice. Usually the backup is Goff or Roethlisberger (or both) with the occasional Cousins mixed in.

    Please, I’d like to draft with you. Give me a holler next time if it’s DK. 🤙

    How will DK handle collusion? Can’t a bunch of buddies just join the same draft and rigg it for each other letting one owner just stack his team?

    I assumed everyone would do this. Optimal strategy?

    I don’t have an answer for you, but it would be pretty obvious if one team had all top 30ish players.

    Also my strategy has been RB RB WR WR in almost all my drafts. Rd 3-5 has some really good WRs and I think RB falls off a lot after Drake. With that said in my 11 $3 drafts I’ve drafted in the 10-12 in 9 of them. Even in the $1 I’ve drafted 10-12 in 5-8 drafts.

    So who has the best best ball team on paper? Post away peeps.

    Does anyone know if best ball can be played in Ohio? I’ve tried to play and im restricted from them. I sent a message to DK’s support, but they are taking their typical sweet time to respond. Just curious if anyone knows off the top of their heads.

  • CleverGroom

    None of DK’s tournaments are more than 26-31% filled so far. They can only fill so fast, especially with a lot of folks already max-entered and with everything else that’s distracting sports fans and bettors at the moment. There’s a good chance this turns into overlay.

    This weekend is a long weekend so it will be telling Tuesday when people go back to work and have less time what the real number will be. If it only gets to 50% after the weekend then no way it gets over 75%. Its not like the milli maker where you can optimize 150 LUS in a short amount of time, this takes time and effort that people cant do during the work week and its one at a time.

    In case you didn’t have your answer yet. DK support answered someone on Twitter about the Ohio restriction: https://twitter.com/DK_Assist/status/1299720227618516993

    Man, what a bummer. I was really excited for the tournaments too.

  • indyblitz

    Now that you can do best ball draft on DK site, I hate it, and like the app better. and at the beginning I hated that it was only app.
    can someone at Rotogrinders with connections complain about the bye week not showing up…lol

    Thanks for the heads up on this, as I saw the desktop was updated to allow for the Best Ball drafts. I was looking forward to using the desktop site, but I will continue to use the app for now in this case.

    Hopefully this will be a good trial run for DK to get some modifications in for next season.

  • hypegotti

    what a mistake accidentally entering a slow draft, 24 hours after making the first pick and i’m about to make my second and third pick smh. i do not have the patience for this.

  • bure10

    Well turns out they are down now. Wonder what happens since it died mid draft

  • joephoto

    I won a DK Best Ball entry ticket but wasn’t prepared. Lost app connection.
    I got Four Questionable players along with Damien Williams as a RB (he had opted out already}.
    Goes faster than you think. My mistake.

  • curt777

    How does overlay work for best ball. Less teams in round 2 or round 3 or something?

  • superjon

    Is there anything worth entering on DK?

    I don’t see anything with a good prizepool.

    On DK, round 2 will be full. To fill out the second round, they’ll take the highest scores that didn’t win their 12 man contest.

    OK. Thanks. So the overlay will make it easier to cash as well.

    I’m with you on best ball slow draft..very painful. I thought it was just going to give you time occasionally..I mean really 6 hours into it we are still in first round 5th pick..give me a break…

  • thenatural91

    How does that work with the 2nd/3rd place prizes for Round 1? Round 1 of the
    $20 contest is structured 1st: Advance | 2nd: $30 | 3rd: $20.

    And then losers in Round 2 get $50.

    So if you finish 1st in Round 1 and lose in Round 2, you win $50, but if you finish 2nd in Round 1, advance via wild card and lose in Round 2, you get $30 + $50 = $80? If right, that seems like a flaw in the process.

    I’ve never played Best Ball. It wasn’t immediately apparent on the app how to access it. I kept scrolling through the banners until I found one that mentioned Best Ball.

    So now I’m in the lobby. I see a few ’12 man’ tournaments and that’s it.

    So the winner of each 12 man progresses to the playoffs? How do I see the overall big tournament and how many entries there are?
