    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

    Also, this site wants money and growth as they all do so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the max entries increased.

    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?

    I feel the same way. In a big DK contest, I do multi entries but this doesn’t seem worth it. It’s almost a losing proposition. If you enter twice and they split 3rd place, you probably lose money. I wish there were more contests with 100 fields, but they should pay the top 10 or 15, even top 20, that would be worth multi entering. They would definitely fill if they made them guaranteed.
    But yeah, I am not multi-entering, maybe on a 50/50 if it allows, but not on a top 3 or top 5.

    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.

    Can you provide further information about which specific states (ANYONE can chime in) have written into their state code (law) DFS COLLEGE is ILLEGAL —- In our state — no such law exists in W.Va. I know for a fact and boatloads of other states.

    ALSO @MARJAC — that’s epic stuff with FD — I was just stoked to have the honor of being told in FD Chat today that since you’ve supported FD over the years and are at least a mid-level player, we’re only offering the NFL free roll to complete NOOBS and semi-experienced players..thanks for the SUPPORT FD!

    Yea Normally my strategy is to do a mini train with the 3-5 entries and when they all hit I win a good amount of money. In these 100 player games it just seems like it will be tough to get all 3 in the money especially if you differentiate to much in which case your spending $15 and the min cash is $15 so them your looking for a top 4 finish instead of top 5 to make money. Not sure if I’m saying what I’m thinking well

  • Stangs13

    Also I just started a thread to discuss the games

  • Rosterdamus

    My goal would’t be to get all 3 in the money, it would be to maximize my chances of getting one in first. So I guess the types of teams you make depend on your goal.

  • Stangs13

    Did they close down the week 1 thread?

  • Rosterdamus

    Looks like it disappeared.

  • eKing

    The topics just are not showing up on main forum. I can see why this outdated post would not lol. It took me a while to find the “Week 1” post.

  • nickrock23

    Yeah it’s weird how they did that. I had trouble finding it too last night. I posted a huge analysis in that thread that I must say was spot on. Apparently no one saw it cause I won almost every contest i entered.. Philip Lindsay was barely owned. I did call Pringle at 2000, only 1 catch but he had 14 targets. There are probably a half dozen low priced guys today that are going to go off.

  • eKing

    I did not play yesterday, but that was good analysis, maybe post a blog on here or somewhere, could gather interest (message the admins). RG should at least keep the weekly topic in the main forum, it would help others discover. At the same time, I think RG is skeptical in allowing promotion of fanpicks. Its all a “wait and see” until we get some sample size in their CFB offerings.

  • JoeyDaRay

    I have been viewing this thread waiting for feedback on that site. I really hope it is legit because i’m really missing CFB DFS.

  • nickrock23

    we’ll see how it goes today, last night ran fairly smooth. seems to be a lot more traffic today.

    I agree King, they deleted a couple of my posts with a link, but i think because it had my ref code on it.. they sent me an email. I don’t even wanna mention the site by name now. But in the future I might post my analysis on a diff site. or tweet the stuff. who knows. And it’s such a small community I don’t want people mad at me for giving away good picks.

  • winning9191

    I think I will give up Fan Picks.

    Head to head is a joke. Only one guy to play and he has won over 1250 bucks already, no 3 man leagues. I will likely give up in fantasy college football this year.

  • nickrock23

    Those guys are good but all beatable. Yesterday I saw ajwilliams, 100rings, 100cats (not sure if that is the same person), and 3 or 5 other guys I saw doing h2h’s. You can also create a 3 person game where winner takes all. Yesterday everything was filling pretty much. If you don’t wanna play him h2h, make your own game and someone will join. I saw a big difference from Thurs compared to yesterday. Thurs it was barely filling one 100 contest, yesterday they filled quite a few. Give it another whirl next week.

  • 100rings

    100rings and 100cats is NOTTTT the same person lol… he is a buddy of mine and likes cats and copied my username, back to the good ole days of FD trying to get username to show up at the top of the lobby :)

    But yes I am very beatable, I lost a good share yesterday due to some very unintelligent picks. More and more play will happen, it will take some time. Heck not until really last year did FanDuel and DK College football really somewhat take off. The main thing is for you guys and people like myself to get our friends on it. Itll take a while for CFB to get anywhere close to NFL but at least we have each other to play against this coming up week.

    Nick Rock take it easy on me dont take all of my money this coming up weekend. Id like to make it to week 3 lol

  • mvanderk10

    I think fanpicks will grow more and more each week, I don’t think they knew what to expect the first week. Hopefully they listen to the community when things arise and they can continue to gain support.

  • 100rings

    mvanderk10, I 100% agree with you and so far like with the rake decrease this coming week on h2hs and 50/50s they seem to be listening and trying so i will play and support them

    let’s go head to head…how much you trying to do?

  • kantiger77

    I think eventually CFB comes back to DK, just not immediately.

    The site will not let me create contests. Lol. I tried that. Filed a ticket, every time I click create contest it took me to dec 31.

    I might toss 10 more bucks into it. I had an open mind.

  • fabrownii718

    I just created a bunch of 50/50’s with no problem. I submitted a ticket last week asking them to split the game times up like DK did. 12pm (early), 3:30pm (afternoon), 7:00pm (evening), and 8:pm+ (late). I got a reply from a staff member who stated he submitted it and it was approved.

    I also created the “$6 6 game Sav Evening slate” it’s 3 7pm and 3 7:30 pm games. 20 people and I think the first prize is 48, then 34 then 20 for 3rd. Very simple to do.
    The contest also allow you to choose pretty much any game. Which I am not so sure about… the first slate (EVE) they posted a contest for last night was 14 or 15 games… so much research necessary and the pricing has no human element. Even the guys who went off last week didn’t go up because the prices are essentially based off last years avg ppg

  • winning9191

    Not so simple when the site does not let you.

    I do not waste my time on 20 people and 3 get paid.
