    I’m hoping maybe the Fanduel rep will have input on this topic.

    Wouldn’t it be possible to set it up so that satellites can be entered based on your experience level? After all, if there are “Beginners only” contests, why can’t there be contests for players with “2 stars only” or “3 stars only”, specifically for satellites? I feel that the heart behind a satellite contest is that a casual player like myself, one who does not play DFS as their profession, could possibly earn their way into a larger event that they would not choose, or be able to pay their own way into. It is frustrating to enter a satellite contest and see the usernames of players who, if they lose, will just pay their way into that same contest, something that myself and a majority of the other players probably could not do. And to be clear, since I know what this thread is likely to turn into, I do not fault these highly experienced and successful players for entering these contests if it is within the rules and regs of Fanduel. I would love to hear what others feel on this…

    Enter the satellites under $3 and you’ll be playing against “casual” players and won’t be playing against the “pros”.

    I do enter those satellites as well. However, the odds are obviously lower based on the lower entry fee. No complaint though, just fact. However, your statement isn’t really true. Right now I am looking at the $3 Satellite to the MLB ENORMOUS Monster with 174 for entries playing for 1 ticket. I know you said below $3, but I think 3 is close enough. In that satellite Papagates, ChipotleAddict, and Thatstunna all have entries. Each of those 3 is also ranked top 10 in the MLB rankings. And again, I do not fault these players one bit for entering these contests. If they can, they should. This is their job, and they have the right to maximize their skills as much as is within the rules. My simple request or question for Fanduel, is more; If there can be contests geared towards Beginners only, then why not contests geared towards mid-level players only? And satellites specifically. All three of the players mentioned above can easily purchase an entry into the ENORMOUS Monster. It’s just my opinion, that satellites should be reserved for players that do not enter that realm, or even more specifically, there should be a certain set of satellites like that.

    There are…. below $3 as I said and you now realize. It isn’t easy, but DFS isn’t supposed to be easy. Or just start playing the big boys all the time and accept it. If you study winning/near-winning lineups every day, that can help you get better.

    I play the $10 & under single entry satellites all the time and these guys don’t win as much as you think. They are the top players in the industry without a doubt, but single entry is a great equalizer, especially in MLB. I’ve won multiple tickets to the upcoming $222, $150 and $44 events in satellites they and other pros were in. Give it a shot, you might see you are more competitive with the pros than you think.
