    I am the type of person that thinks when my team is down 40 at the 2 minute warning we still have a chance, but I am starting to accept the reality of the situation as the clock is about to hit zero. Without ranting and crying, this is an underrated awful for the DFS industry and everyone just lets it pass by…. smh

  • Rosterdamus

    well im not surprised about anyone having any players from louisville, nc state. They had implied totals of 50 and 46.

    Nick, if you want some differentiated lineups, play the Saturday prime time game. The put 21 freaking games on the slate

    I wish I could post the H2H view of this game . I don’t see how it’s possible. The one guy we differ on that he has, I used on 90% of my LU’s. Just having Nate Cole and Cortez Lewis paired up in a 20 player field is 100-1 at least. Nate Cole was 3200 !! Tonite was a pretty big slate with a ton of great plays.

    Dayes and Samuels were expected to be very high . Even having 7 out of 9 who are 80 owned is extremely unlikely. I played a 2 game MLB slate tonight, I wouldn’t find one LU with 7 out of 9 guys on Draftkings.

    Yeah I understand .8x.8x.8x.8 and so on gets to a really low probability. And I’m in that one bro. right now they have me at 6. but basically all my guys scored except 2 so dont plan on first lol.

    FanDuel took the 5th in response to my blistering cross-examination:

    Hi marjac,

    Thanks for contacting FanDuel Customer Support. As part of an agreement with the NCAA, we have decided to voluntarily and indefinitely suspend college sports contests in all states.

    You can read more about this decision, which we announced in March here: https://newsroom.fanduel.com/2016/03/31/update-on-ncaa-contests/

    We certainly hope you continue to enjoy our NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA contests!

    Best,
    Val

    Yes, I understand that there was an agreement.

    What were the terms of that agreement?

    Was the agreement reduced to writing, and is it publicly available for inspection and review?

    How were these months of conversations productive, if the ultimate outcome was the death of college football dfs?

    What specific reasons and evidence did the NCAA present in support of its position other than irrational fear and hyperbole?

    Specifically, why is ending college football dfs, “the best path forward”?

    Why did FD allow the NCAA to so irrationally frame the issue, by grouping big-time college football in with high school and youth sports, when nobody has ever suggested that there should be dfs in high school and youth sports?

    Why is FD actively supporting carve outs making college football dfs illegal?

    What makes such a ban, a “smart regulation”?

    FD lauds the “resounding call from their constituents who want to continue to play the games they love”, but what about the resounding call from those of us who filled those CFB GPPs, no longer being able to play the CFB dfs games that we love?

    Hi marjac,

    Thanks for your response. We currently have no further information in regards to NCAA contests at this time. Thank you for your understanding.

    Best,
    Val

    Looks like scores just came in.

  • nickrock23

    Dude, Roster, you are in 2nd by .50 !!! You’re up 75 on that. Of course I came in 6th so didn’t cash cause it’s a top 5. Every top 3 I came in 4th, every top 5 I came in 6th. But on the bright side I won pretty much every H2H.

  • nickrock23

    I see what that guy meant… the GPP that you came in 2nd says top 5 win, but only 3 are paid.. That’s better for you cause your prize is bigger.

  • nickrock23

    Yeah that sixtwo_ guy is in a few of my contests… Oh well. I’m glad you beat him

  • Hkhotsskhotb

    Marjac, applaud you for asking the questions too many just want to wipe under the carpet. CFB was the only game that wasn’t polluted by mega multi entry and the other garbage in dfs. Yet somehow it gets the boot. 5 of the 10 top tourney players had zero CFB ranking. I’m sure if that were ten out of ten and many more other mme guys were playing, FD wouldn’t have been so fast to cut bait.
    I’ve heard way too many times “at least we still have the other dfs sports”. Yeah that’s nice but losing CFB at the big boys and then being written into state laws wasn’t worth it. I made more off of CFB in only two seasons then all other sports. I bet other diehards have similar tales. Go fan picks we need somebody that won’t voluntarily give away our rights.

  • nickrock23

    I think this might be a little tougher, it seems only the die hards are playing on this site.. in DK and FD you would get a lot of casual players who are just playing because it was accessible. I will just will have to do better research..

  • Rosterdamus

    Oh yeah I’m pissed that guy beat me by .4 lol but what can ya do? I came in 1st in the other one for $120 and the $5 20-person for $40. Worth the frustration tonight lol.

  • Rosterdamus

    I just wish I entered the 100-person but it looks like I would have only taken down 4th for $60 anyways. 3rd place is balesjustin, I wonder if thats Jon’s little bro lol. And yeah, look how frustrating and shady this site looks at first glance, of course it’s going to be all the straight degenerate CFB junkies playing there lol.

  • Rosterdamus

    I wish I had got in on that DK and FD then. I just started playing NFL last year and didn’t even try college on DK til like week 9 or 10.

    Wow, that’s awesome for you. Nice hit. I really hope it doesn’t freeze up tomorrow night.

  • Rosterdamus

    I anticipate it will. But I also anticipate I’ll be back anyways.

    I did great in CFB last year, but during the bowls I had a bad run and gave some back. Of course I was playing $50, $100 games and kept missing.

    Shoot I forgot west coast games were still playing. So the sweat begins…

    Thanks Hkhotsshotb. Except for some sporadic success in MLB and NFL, it’s been mostly mediocrity at best outside of college football. Like you, I had more success in college football than all of the others combined. College football had the least amount of variance. It was just plain fun, paying attention for 13 hours on a Saturday, getting pumped up on Thursdays, and who can forget MACaction. I had a credit card payment problem with Fanpicks tonight, but I look forward to diving in with others and hopefully we can all help grow that college football action, while preserving this vibrant, and vastly underrated segment of the DFS community.

  • Hkhotsskhotb

    With the algos and mme that dominate MLB and the other big sports. CFBs lack of coverage, pay sites, lineup selling etc proved the skill aspect of the players participating. Yet it gets cut. Great regulation.

    Had they left it alone the community likely would have grown and thrived at those sites. Why wouldn’t you play a game that if you put in the effort you could do well and not get bulldozed by the “sharks”.

    Hope this grows. Even if it’s harder, nothing like an all day of CFB to get excited about.

    Rodney Smith was the play I guess, since Brooks was hurt and OSU’s rush defense isn’t good.

  • Stangs13

    Anyone have any input on multi entering the 100 person games. 3 is the max which is what I normally like to play in all my GPPs, it just works for my bankroll but with only top 5 paying out it seems like it would be better to just single enter and hope 3 different 100 person tourneys open up. Thoughts?

  • Rosterdamus

    Yeah he’s the guy that defirsted me in the one.

  • Rosterdamus

    In the future I would probably make 10 different lineups and then see if 3 are differentiated enough to be worth using. If you are having a ton of overlap I think 1 would be better since if one tanks they all will, but if you can make 3 substantially different lineups without sacrificing much in the way of projected points, I’d go with 3.
