    Is Peyton really not up there, or is that just a miss?

  • AveryBradley

    FanDuel should lock rosters being viewed until Sunday like every other site does.

    I agree with Avery, this information should definitely not be available.

    Don’t the other sites allow you to change your roster up until a players game starts? Fanduel does not.

    Great info…thanks for the effort.

    No kidding. I would play another 300 games if this were the case. So annoying.

    I think this thread is stupid and really upsets me that someone would want to post this kind of information. Guess we are all here for different reasons.

    Yeah I mean, I hate to sound like a curmudgeon about it but that is kindof a lazy, pathetic way to do research to me.

    I guess I don’t blame OP for posting it, if the sites allow it then it is definitely a resource for poeple.

    You should not be upset with the person posting this info. It is good info if attainable. You should be upset with the lazy site that does not have the necessary player hider in place.

    Whats the point of playing Thursday football on Fanduel? Why would you put your best lineup in on Thursday when everyone can view it and see what your thinking.
    They should get with the rest of the industry on this and block that kind of info.
    Thats the reason I dont play Thursday action over there and when I do its only to stack the Thursday night game.

    Boy – this type of public info is really pushing the limits. FanDuel should obviously make changes to this feature for Thursday locks but I don’t think articles and threads on this info is in the best nature of the game.

  • Mike5754

    Definitely pushing the limits. Really wish RG would take this down and not allow future posts like this one. This whole thread and idea is just disgusting. Come on FanDuel.

    @THEFFORACLE, that is the whole reason people are pissed, you were able to take other peoples hard work (making a successful LU) and make a profit off of it. Smart on your part, but should not be permitted by Fanduel.

  • Mike5754

    I’m very disappointed with Rotogrinders with this for sure.

  • TheFFOracle

  • tommyboy42609

    This type of info just feels kind of slimey and in a way kind of messes with the integrity of the game. This is not the type of info RG should be promoting in articles IMO, either.

    I’ll admit I sometimes use thurs. leagues to get a grip on who is owned how much on DS for various reasons but the last thing I’m doing is posting it publicly.

    Hopefully these sites implement changes to correct these issues… just my $0.02

    I think we’ll likely see a large divide in this thread shortly with the folks who love and hate this.

    Bottom line is that this type of thread and info is going to leave any successful h2h or du player with a sour taste in their mouth. Becomes almost pointless to do any research for the week.

    You are basically letting the guy to your right at the poker table who saw your hole cards announce it to the table and continue with the hand.

    Dips posted a thread about this the other day and everyone talked about how great it was… yet it was the same principle.

    Totally agree and since I appreciate averybradley, mike, BirdWings, and others playing Thursday games so that I can obtain this info I will stop posting this thread for the rest of the season.

    All that being said I still have just as much success if not more on the other sites without looking at top players LUs. And my LU this Thursday was almost identical to averybradley’s so all this research really does is confirm that I’m on track and thinking like the top players do.

    LOL damn…

    We’ll see if it confirms that come Sunday. Be ready for a rude awakening.

    In all seriousness though I think you’ve found a decent way to quasi-data mine (I know top players that take a $2 from other top players to do the samething, however, I do think posting it on RG is a bit much)

    You obviously seem like a level-headed individual so I think you understand why chop, mike, bird etc weren’t really feeling the thread.

    I don’t know…if FD allows anybody to see it, I don’t see what you’ve posted as wrong. You’ve just compiled it into one spot.

    You’re paying for information. It’s like making a call at the poker table to see what the ‘other guy’ is playing with, despite knowing you’re probably playing a losing hand…it’s not just you who benefits—the whole table sees those cards.

    As Chop says in another post, if the ‘pros’ don’t want you to see/know their picks, they have several choices:

    1) Don’t play Thursday games.
    2) Don’t play $2 games on Thursday (play $50+ dollar games)

    I think both of these choices are reasonable & there is no reason to chastise FFOracle for his weekly post…we can all ‘buy’ the same information for ~ $10.

  • AveryBradley

    I hear that too…“Don’t hate the player, hate the game”

    FFOracle smart to do that (like I said I know others who do and it isn’t their fault, they don’t make FD site policy, they are just players/customers)

    Just was the act of posting it that kinda felt like going too far.
