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

  • Supersharpie

    Do any “wild cards” advance to the third round?

    I don’t think so they filled in all the gaps last round

    Cool, I finished second in one of my groups with 172.34 points so I figure I have a shot of sneaking in.

    No there is no wild cards in this round so if you lost your done. That is the one part I don’t like about the format and I had a 175 point score get 2nd after putting up 2100+ full season score that will only get me $8 and a kick out the door when my other advancing group the winning team only needed 161. It adds a pretty large luck factor with this 1 in 12 advancing format.

  • periewe

    Lots of luck involved in the one I advanced in. I had 197 and 2nd was 189, third was 180.

    I am happy that DK had best ball tourneys….wondering why fanduel after buying draft didn’t have any tourneys….just season long leagues.

  • jleit13

    Yeah I agree with others that top 3 should probably advance from the 2nd round and that there should be a better payout if you finish like 4th compared to 12th. But, we all knew the rules when we entered so it is what it is. As far as next year, I will definitely be looking to see if they make any changes and that will effect how many entries I put in next year. I really only planned to throw a few in each contests this past year but about 2 weeks prior to the start of the season I tested positive for covid so I was home with literally nothing to do but best ball drafts lol. Overall I think I lost about $200 unless my $3 team can make a deep run, which i highly doubt. In the end, it really doesn’t seem like i lost money though since I spent that money 3 months ago and now getting back over $600 this past week lol. One more thing, I would like to go back and look at ADPs from this past summer and see if we could come up with close to the optimal team. I’ll dive into that later today or tomorrow. Anyways, good luck to anyone with teams remaining.

    Got a 202 and 196 through my third got passed by lamar’s last TD. Could be in great shape if I get Gibson/mixon/perine/John brown back this week

    I feel guilty now. I advanced with a 165 in the $20 by .28 points.

    I’m sure there was some methodology to the way they distributed the teams in Round 2. I’ll obviously be put with tons of juggernauts in Round 3 now haha.

  • yisman

    so much luck, yeah

    you could’ve drafted a great team this season but if you didn’t have the smash plays in Week 14, you’re out and you don’t get much back.

    I had one $3 advance to 14 and one $20 but neither one was able to win this week so now all my teams are eliminated. Very poor season.

  • tvegas40

    Yep pretty crazy on luck of the draw. I had strong team set for a good week next week get knock without 201 and a team make it through to round 3 with a 159

  • Rickytango13

    I’m the only one with Henry 😏

  • bignish

    Wish I had Darren Waller, congrats to those who do.

    Yeah really good start unfortunately the other guy with Waller in mine has an absolutely stacked team going to be tough to beat him

  • Rickytango13

    No one in my only remaining $3 had Waller, and no one else has Henry. Let’s gooooo

    I have Russ and dk (2/12 and 4/12) but I’m fading them in the milly so hopefully I’m good either way.

  • Halman

    I love the Best Ball formats and had a blast with the drafts. But lots of frustration with DK since the season started in terms of being able to easily see and sort my DK Best Ball teams. And their handling of the quarterfinals and semi-finals has been lacking in transparency as well. What were the wild card cutoff scores after week 13? Does anybody know? I had an absolute TRASH team “qualify” for a wild card spot (McCaffery and Kittle leading my all-pro injury riddled team) and other excellent teams NOT qualify.
    When I raised my concern to DK, I could not get a direct answer. I went directly to a more senior member pf the customer support team who was able to give me a screenshot of the wildcard cutoff scores for each of the different Best Ball contests. I can share them if anyone is interested. I asked her if I had just missed this somewhere and she said “No, this info was never posted.” Why not? Now, having that info in hands, all I needed to do is compare my team scores to the cutoff lines and know that all the teams properly made or missed the quarterfinals. But the team history is no longer viewable after Week 13 on either the site or app?

    Questions ….
    1. Are those of who played Best Ball still able to see your team history?

    2. Did anyone else have concerns about the accuracy of the wild card cutoff lines?

    Note: I am a big fan and LONG-time DK customer. Having read the other comments on this thread, there are definitely ways of improving the customer experience in future Best Ball competitions, and this is one of many ways.
    Going forward, I’d like to see: (a) more than 1 team qualify for the “playoffs”; (b) once the playoffs start, abandon the leagues and just have the top “x” # of high scores advance (so one weekly tourney versus leagues of 12 to prevent the 160s from advancing and thw 190s getting bounced); and © have more than a handful of teams in the “finals”. One tourney I’m in has 4 finalists and the other 6 finalists. Why not 12 to 24 fighting it out for the top prize?

    The teams were all in the recent history on the app after they concluded. However on the app you can see the last 7 days worth of contests. On the computer you can go back to the beginning of time but I believe after 30 days you can no longer see team details.

  • Halman

    Thanks. Was able to see the team scores without details. Still have some questions, but will work it out with DK.

  • w3junky

    What’s the latest with Conner tonight? Have him in and snell on bench. Down by 2 points.

    Nevermind. Just saw the alert come across. Conner out.

  • Stangs13

    Does anyone know when the sit and gos will be paid out? I believe they were supposed to end after week 16.

  • drbubba

    FanDuel paid. Don’t know when DK is going to pay out.
