    Thought you were kidding, since you’re on a bestball thread, and it’s a joke I would probably make.

    The way it works….

    There are 8 positions to fill
    QB, 2rb, 3 Wr, 1flex, 1 te.

    At the end of each week you get the points from your highest scoring QB, your 2 highest scoring running backs, your 3 highest scoring receivers, your highest scoring TE, and your highest scoring Flex. Everyone else’s points don’t count. You don’t have to decide who to start or sit.

    However, if there’s an injury, the guy just stays on your roster, there are no add drops, no trades, no waiver. Your drafted team, is your end of season team.

    Thanks for the explanation. So the bench is irrelevant, don’t understand why we had to pick those then if we’re stuck with our main 8. So you’re telling me I’m going to win it all? Thanks!

    Nooooooooo…if one of your bench guys outscores a starter you get the points from the bench guy.

    For example.,,,if you drafted Mahomes and he scores 25 DK points, yet your backup is Gardner Minshew, and he scores 30 points, you get 30 points in your QB slot.

    And you need the bench because of injuries as well.

    I think the name ‘best ball’ came from the fact that you’re getting the ‘best’ score.

    In normal fantasy you have to choose who to start. Here, you get whatever the best is.

    Going to have a lot of teams taking zeroes later in the season, though. Between injuries and COVID and byes and maybe games getting canceled/postponed…

    A lot of people might’ve drafted only 2 QBs and/or only 2 TEs.

    I would think that happens (in a normal season) anyway due to injuries.

    DK is expiring the tickets for DK dollars, according to users on Twitter

    honestly, you’re making out better than me.

    I used mine (I had one from a promo, one from a satellite, and one they gave to me on Tuesday) because I thought I had to use it.

    I had no idea what I was doing and it’s 16% rake now or whatever.

    Do you have any more info on this @yisman? DK is basically emailing me back telling me to go screw so far… so we’ll see…

  • periewe

    Last two drafts I did on DK….Guice was drafted in the middle rounds.

  • periewe

    Each week is different….it is the highest scoring per position/per week out of your pool of guys. That is what makes it interesting….quantity versus quality.

    Yeah, but in a normal season league you can drop and add players. In DK’s best ball you cannot. The roster you draft is your team for the season. Suppose you have 3 QBs, whichever one scores the most that week counts as your QB score that week.

    I imagine there was 2-3 dead money players in each draft; even in the higher dollar ones were people missing picks. Who knows how many actually understand the rules.

  • ElSlappo

    I feel empty today with no best ball drafts to do

    +also when your players are on a bye week

  • shorman22

    I usually do the route of three QBs 6-7 running backs 6-7 wide receivers three tight ends. I Took both te from Tampa I got nervous had to pick up four te in my 333 best ball

    In a normal bestball season you can not add or drop players. On any site’s bestball, this year, last year , 2 years ago, next year….there are no add drops.

    Edit..IMO it’s the best way to play season long. People can’t collude or cheat (unless they figure out how to cheat the draft, which I’d imagine would be difficult), as there are no trades. Negligent owners who don’t set their lineups can’t ruin the league. People who spend every waking minute on the waiver wire and never miss a pick up can’t consistently win, because they have more time to spare.

    So true

  • yisman

    2-3 QB, depending on whether you have a top one
    2-3 TE, depending on whether you have a top one
    5 RB
    rest WR

  • shorman22

    In like $333 best ball my qbs are Patrick Mahomes Tom Brady and Joe burrow

  • TraceMayer

    @Njsum1

    Oh I misread what you were saying. I was thought you meant ‘normal’ season long FF, not normal bestball.

    I agree with your edit about the nature of bestball; its great for a season long sweat without all the work involved in a traditional season long league. I was the guy who put the time in on the WW and won leagues almost because of that alone. I think those that understand bestball will do nicely in this years DK contests, and I hope DK has it again next year. If hey do, a higher % of people will be sharper about it but I bet there will still be a sizable amount of dead money.

  • yisman

    I drafted too much Dede Westbrook

  • Kevin23242

    Can anyone else see best ball results? I can’t pull-up my lineup and still shows zero.

    I use the old layout, and they are checkable there. The new layout wont show them at all. This is from a laptop though, not sure about apps.

  • periewe

    I took a lot of Tua chances in the 15-17 rounds as my third. Don’t know if it will pay off or not.
