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

    I don’t understand why everyone is saying it’s impossible to win if you drafted prior to yesterday now? Isn’t it week 1-14 vs your 12 then a redraft vs a new group of people who won? Probably easier to make a winning team yesterday vs the fish but gahh doesn’t do you much good in the tournament format where you’ll klay other sharp people going forward? Or are these lineups being carried over through the end of the season?

    These lineups are being carried over all season and there is no redraft. Early in the year before guys like Willimas opted out CEH wasn’t a first round pick and you could pick up guys like Gibson in the 15th round before he was hyped up into the 6th-8th so I wouldn’t guarantee the winning lineup was drafted last night as there were some values to be had early if you could get out in front of the news.

    No you have the same team all year. So if you win your 12 man league you will be up against other winners and there will be some overlap of the same players.

    Oh….im going to win my leagues. Bankable

  • hypegotti

    Oh yikes then they definetly messed with the integrity of the game smh

  • monarch

    Someone just picked Drew Brees 8th overall…..

    I honestly think it’s just dumb people drafting and not collusion

  • monarch

    True. You dont get to join public leagues with all your friends. They fill 12 spots instantaneously

    Drew Bree’s must be primed for an awesome year as he was taken 6th overall in one of my drafts and I saw another person on Twitter with a screen shot of him being taken 12th. What really messed with Best Ball integrity was Bud Light offering a contest for a free case of beer if you draft Gardner Minshew in the first round and screenshot it. People were doing that all the time in the $3 drafts when they put that out which pretty much makes it an 11 team draft with 1 team drafted as a joke to maybe get a cheap case of beer.

    Free case for $3 is still ev+ 😂 I can’t believe dk would allow bud light to do that; I guess they don’t really have any recourse

    Yeah it had nothing to do with DK at all and it was all done as a Bud Light Promo. Underdog responded immediately begging users to not do this on their site as it wrecks the integrity of the game and offered free contest tickets for not drafting Minshew in the 1st round.

    It also wasn’t a guarantee to get a free case of beer for $3 as it was a twitter promo and they only gave away 1 case of beer so everyone that drafted Minshew and entered the contest were put into a random drawing for that sole case of beer so it was really dumb to do but I supposed people think there are worse ways to blow $3 I guess.

  • Rickytango13

    I have a $3 with Chubb/Jones/hunt/aj Dillon. Can’t decide whether it was a good idea to soak up points from what should be 2 run-heavy teams, or if it was dumb because that takes 2 rbs out of the equation on each bye week. Thoughts?

    generally don’t want to handcuff your RB in best ball

    try to avoid taking two RBs from same team

    that explains that underdog promo that I saw

    I didn’t understand why they were offering tickets for anyone who didn’t make what would be an insane pick

    Im in a $20 millionaire draft right now, and someone has taken Josh Allen, Christian Kirk and Hunter Renfrow with his first three picks. Smells pretty bad. No one could be that inept.

    At least that guy has one legitimate first rounder.

  • winnerchickendinner

    People are going to be disappointed if they make it to the final for the million on week 16 and most of there top guys have bad matchups.

    Whenever I’m tempted to think about that, I remind myself how little we know about who these teams will be in Week 16, and how important it is to make it into the arena in the first place. I’d be very surprised if drafting for a strong Week 16 isn’t -EV.

    Im having a hard time buying into the collusion angle. Maybe i am wrong but these things fill up so fast that it would be really difficult for three friends to get into the same contest. Now maybe that wasnt the case a week ago. Then if they were successful i would stand to benefit equally if i lucked into that contest and the collusion should be easy to prove on DKs part if they did this multiple times.

  • Jpitten

    I’ve been doing 20$ for a few hours and brees keeps going first round

    Yeah, I feel like you’d need at least half the draftees to be in on it otherwise there would be too many people benefiting

    Maybe im doing it wrong. Im waiting late for QB and landing on Goff, Jimmy G and Carr because i think those three will likely still be QB1, healthy and in pretty good offenses come late in the season. And on most weeks one of them probably beat Brees or whomever someone is wasting a high pick on.

  • yisman

    Brees hasn’t gone in the first in any of my 8 drafts

    I wish I was in those!

    He went in the 8th in the last one I was in.
