    Can anyone recommend an NFL DFS site that’s NOT fanduel or draftkings?

    I played Yahoo NFL for the first time this weekend and won $1500. I requested to withdraw my winnings and 24 hours later my request still says “pending approval”. Has anyone else had a delay in receiving winnings?

    I’ve made several with withdraws over the past couple years & it always takes 24-48 hrs to arrive in my PayPal account. With them probably getting bombarded right now with withdraw requests it might take 2-3 days.

    It makes sense for them to keep the $1M prize fund in the bank for a coupe days…maybe they make a little bit or interest on the money…that’d be one way to absorb the “no management fees” loss of profit. Thanks for your response.

    I wemt 8-4 and won 9 times my $100 buy in on overlaydfs.com where else in America can you win $900 with only an 8-4 record. Its 12 whowouldyoustart questions gpp tourny 1 entry max and limited to 2500 entries for total ff points choices were cool too they had
    Conner vs bell
    Hill vs kelce
    Julio vs Beckham
    McCaffrey vs Barkley
    howard vs m sanders

    Its like whowouldyoustart with a team full of studs instead of do i start with your kicker and TE imagine you had Barkley and McCaffrey on your team and could only start 1……BTW if you get all 12 right sit/starts correct you win over $26,000 otherwise best 10% of records win 9x

    Pretty cool game takes forever to book 5 losses so your in the hunt all day instead of 10 min

    If I went past the big 2, who is better between the other 2? In terms of contest selection, roster build, fish, etc

    Yahoo. This is such an easy question to me, for this reason: FantasyDraft stubbornly refuses to adopt late-swap, and are the only major site in the industry to not have it. This presents more than a slight inconvenience to the casual player, who cant always be sitting at their computer the entire hour before lineup lock, scanning different websites to see if anyone has released rosters/lineups for the late games (If you’re an NHL player, this format can be a deal breaker if you’re punting on low priced defenseman who often get healthy-scratched 10 or 15 minutes before puck drop).

    Why reward this stubbornness? It’s 2019. Would you continue to use a word processing program that didn’t have a “cut and paste” feature?

    Finally received my payout…53 hours to process to PayPal…not that I was counting but i think i healed from a root canal faster than that. I shouldn’t complain…was an easy $1500.

    Yahoo rake free games are nice, but are small and fill up fast. If you want to play beyond that small amount, then you can’t beat the FantasyDraft rake free on all tournaments.

    Fantasy Draft is the easy choice, the whole site is Rake Free
    Why would anyone want to pay up to 30% of their money in Rake (contest) ?

    1. No late swap is far better for the casual player.

    2. Cheap NHL defenseman do not often get healthy scratched 10-15 minutes before puck draft. The lineups almost always come out by around noon (in the timezone the game is played) each day. Late scratches happen but are very rare.

    Empty argument, no late swap is so much better for the casual player. It only benefits a player who can sit and watch lineup/games and re-optimize.

    “Rake free” but you pay for a membership. It’s like the “free health care” you get in some countries which you actually pay for with your taxes. Not saying it’s a bad model (nor is socialized medicine, necessarily), but let’s at least be honest about it.

    Maybe we disagree on what “casual” is. IF you are playing single entry, 50/50s, and lots of smaller field contests, then re-optimizing MME sharks are not your biggest problem. The convenience of being able to swap players out past lock FAR outweighs the theoretical threat of these players.

    Isn’t it rake free (without a membership) if you play still under a certain amount? I’m not certain on this, I just thought that it was under like $100 or something?

    PhoFever, I would like to direct you to my post from earlier in this thread. Thanks!

    “Simply replaced by a subscription fee” is not accurate.

    1) No subscription needed for up to $100 in entry fees per month.
    2) For $5.99 a month a user can play up to $1,000 in entry fees. On other sites, this user will be charged $150 in rake on that $1,000. Compared to $5.99. Most users would prefer to pay $5.99 instead of $150. And that’s just on the first playthrough of the money!

    Here is a real example.

    Lets say a user plays $1,000 in NFL Week 1 and breaks exactly even. On FantasyDraft, that user pays a $5.99 subscription fee. On other sites, that user pays $150 in rake, which is 25x as much.
    Heading into Week 2, on FantasyDraft the user has $994. On other sites, $850.
    Lets say the user breaks exactly even again. This user still has $994 on FantasyDraft. This user pays 15% in rake on their $850 and is now down to $722.50.
    These numbers get even more exaggerated with each subsequent playthrough of the money. The math does not lie and it is really a no brainer which is better for the players!

    Thanks everyone for supporting us!
