    I might need to write Yahoo and open it up and make it public. If it doesn’t fill I guess everyone gets reimbursed? Or does it run?

    Yahoo’s customer service seems to be pretty solid. I think they could make it public. Basing everything on how their NHL “leagues/made contests” run you will be refunded but a “free” contest still runs. We might want to start in the 15-20 people range. I didn’t see where it stalled at but bringing Yahoo in is a great idea!

    Hey guys,

    I have a league that starts Jan 3rd and runs through the TOUR champ. $100 Buy in. Draftkings is what we use to make lineups (free entry contest). Each week, depending on where you finish, you receive “fedexcup” pts, just like the PGA tour concept. Most pts after the playoffs, wins. There’s weekly bonus pts for no cut lineup or picking the winner in your lineup. I have a full page of rules and guidelines that I could send you personally, if interested. I am a very reliable and trustworthy person. Can prove anything you want to know. Even screenshots of payouts for previous years winners, etc… Looking to make this a 20 man max, 8 man minimum.

    I also have a one and done league, same price.

    Message me personally or get back to me here!

    Thanks

    Good contests here.

    I was in both of them last year. Dustin is a good dude.

    Any of you guys in Gup’s Corner’s GCCup 2019? First year doing it – it’s a pretty cool format. Two leagues Gold and Platinum.

    Platinum filled, but still spots left in Gold.

    Gup’s Corner does a great job in contests for all sports. Fun and informative site.

    Check it out.

    “Unfortunately there is no way to change the settings for your Daily Fantasy league after you create it. I wish there was more that I could do for you. I would recommend creating another league.”

    Ugh, Yahoo!

  • lfn1992

    We do have 9 people in the Yahoo January contest at the moment. It’s private, but again, here’s the signup if you’re interested. Only $5 for a month’s worth of fun and prizes.

    We need 50!

    One long promo.

    How does DK not have any achievements for PGA this year?! That’s absolutely ridiculous that I can’t earn my 15 crowns at a time!

    I agree, that really sucks. It’s not like they couldn’t have read this forum for ideas, too.

    While some of the Achievements I’ve seen in NBA and NHL seem small and pointless, the NFL ones were pretty good – I lost count but I earned well over 25K crowns for the season not to mention another 40-50K crowns for the daily missions – I’d simply enter a contest ever day in NFL to get the mission – I was going to enter the contest anyways but instead of doing them all on Friday or Saturday, I entered some daily.

    I realize at really small stakes, the 25-85 crowns don’t seem like much but if you average $25+ per day and get 350-1000 crowns for a mission (in a contest you were already going to enter) and that also helps knock off multiple achievement levels, it adds up fast. Think I ended up completing 47/63 NFL achievements – the really big players must have cashed 150-250K+ crowns in those as it went up significantly with each level.

  • whodat2

    How much is a crown worth? I have 114,000.

    55,000 I think buys a $100 ticket

    I used some of mine for $100 NFL tickets

    Go to your MyAccount menu (or in App click on your avatar then Purchase Contest Tickets and you can see values). Just make sure you know the value of the contest you want as they don’t always have tickets available – I bought a $33 ticket once and the only offering that week for golf was $44 and they didn’t have that as a purchase option – they’ve since added the $44 ticket as well now.

    Gotcha, thanks!

    Finally broke down and bought a new driver – been hitting a 7 year old Callaway Razr Fit Extreme since it was new as I haven’t been able to get better numbers or dispersion on the launch monitor with any new driver offering the past 5 years. A lot of it had to do with me having the opposite problem of most golfers, I need a driver head/shaft combo that brings my spin rate up and nothing gave me more than 1-2 extra yards than what I had.

    I demo’d a bunch of Callaway drivers at a fitting in August and finally got a better fit; I went back and hit some before Christmas with positive results again so I bought a Callaway Rogue driver and didn’t even have to pay up for a custom shaft as one of their stock offerings actually was the best shaft for me – a Synergy 50. The numbers on the launch monitor said I’ll carry it 7 yards further and be 9 yds longer overall which is almost a club less into a green so if that is true that would be great – if not, at least I have something new and shiny to look at 😂 Now I just have to wait 3 more months to hit it on the course when my season starts in April; unless I sneak away to play….hmmm.

    For the TOC this week I’m not super interested but I played 3 lineups in the $5 and put one of them in the $33.

    Went 100% Leishman – no matter what, he’ll definitely be Top 34 😂

    Synergy 50

    As in 50 grams? That’s either a ladies shaft or you really are a super senior :)

    I am a huge fan of the NHL and NBA ones. I think they will really pay off by the end of their respective seasons. But it requires genuinely going on daily all the time to put in your LUs.

    For NFL I got 26/63 but I did get the 2k achievement and got to Level 6 in Gridiron Guru. Do playoff games count? If so I will probably take a stab to get to Level 7 in GG.

    Nope it’s a stiff and it actually weighs close to 60 grams like 57-58 not sure why it’s called a 50; but yah it’s a couple grams lighter than what I had.

    No it’s done for NFL – playoffs don’t count

    I play in tourneys where preffered lies are in place. Reading the rules, I comprehend that you can change your ball in this case, meaning top flight off the tee….. prov1 incoming…. correct?

    Happy New Years y’all! Looking forward to crushing 2019 and going to try and not be a lurker on the forums as much as i’ve been. Excited for the ‘first’ tourney of the year..

    What Im hoping for this year in PGA DFS:

    1. DK offers another Live Final
    2. DK offers Q’s for Tiger Jam in the Summer
    3. Yahoo or FanDuel to really step up their prize pools (FD is doing much better)
    4. Achievements bc why not?
    5. Continued great contests to Q into the Wildcat or bigger tournaments
    6. Missing anything?
