    With the current issues of the big sites FD and DK, is it time to move to a smaller site with proper management?
    Between the private data leak with likely usage by employees and the mishandling of the supposed guaranteed MMA contests, I’m really thinking about moving. I know we all want to be where the big prize pools are but if many of us move to one preferred smaller site, those prizes could grow.

    What smaller sites are your favorites and what’s your experience been with management and support there?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to Fantasy Hub….love the site, OP is super active on here and best of all you can donate to charity while playing!

    Nooooo I like the overlay. Stay on FD/DK.

    (but if you want to move, FantasyAces, Fantasydraft, and Draftpot are all good options)

    If you think the recent issues are limited to the big two, you are sadly mistaken. It’s not just a FD/DK issue, it’s an industry-wide issue.

    Don’t like to share my favorite overlay sites haha but really liking DraftPot and the no salary games they offer.

    That is why I asked for people’s experiences with some smaller ones. I’ve played for years and almost every site has had an issue with a guaranteed contest and they all paid out the winners, regardless of the issue because it was guaranteed. I actually think a larger site would be more likely to mishandled the issue, since it costs them even more in refunded entries to losers.

    Maybe a smaller site can have TOS that forbids employees from playing DFS altogether, as I think was the case with DailyJoust and maybe others.

    Previous reply was to this post.

    I had an idea for making the transition work for all. If we were to all simply start by moving all of our cash games and 50/50 games, that alone would help grow another site before we use it for larger GPPs. In the meantime, we can still play our current GPPs at the large sites.

    I doubt we could get enough people to coordinate this move effectively but it could work if we all discuss it here first.

    Our employees cannot play on other sites and we have a lot of other benefits as well like 20 max entry and 25% prize pool on all contests. We also have some cool experience contests we run like the London Fletcher contest that’s live in our lobby now. There will be more or those coming with current NFL players this week. Check it out.

    Thank you for the reply. I’ll check out Fantasy Draft this week.

    Interesting. They also have the standard mode that they refer to as GM mode as opposed to Fan mode with no cap. I’ll check them out too.

    I’m already signed up with Fantasy Aces too so I’m also going to play a few contests there and check to see if any of my others are still active.
