2017 MLB DFS thread

New year .

I've switched to Fanduel.

They didn't have late swap last year right? Hope their contests end up being better

Correct, Fanduel doesn't have late swap. Will probably be in again, not sure what I'll be playing yet, but probably Single Entries and some big tourneys

Players lock at start of game, so you can put in, for example, Nelson Cruz who is on west coast and might start at 10 PM, and can switch him if he goes out or any changes happen

Re: 2017 MLB DFS thread

Fired up for some beisbol.

There are pros and cons to late swap, for sure.

I like being able to lock the lineups and that's it -- sit back and enjoy the games or time with family and friends.

On the other hand, I'd like to gobble up some extra +EV if it's out there.

I'm a recreational player, so I don't guess it matters too much either way.

Looks like the $3 GPP on DK has 20 max entries. Iirc last year it was 150ish? Might shift to more GPP this year if that's the case all year.

Im sure they will still have 150 max contests at those stakes, but with that said, adding 20 max contests is a nice addition IMO.

Re: 2017 MLB DFS thread

Anyone interested in starting a weekly group game where you try to have the worst score?

I was thinking every Wednesday night, maybe a minimum of 49,500 salary, hitters and pitchers have to start and if you have players in a postponed game your entry is void.

Can set up free private group game with money escrowed/settled offsite, wanted to get 20+ people joining and the more the better. Was thinking maybe we could do 20 weeks with standings/bonuses etc. I'm open to alternative suggestions and input

Re: 2017 MLB DFS thread

Really off topic but I figure people in here might be able to provide the best answer. What is your go-to source for daily hitter rankings? I have a deep bench in a year-long fantasy league and want to make picking who I bench/start easier and less time consuming. BvP isn't helpful because I have a lot of young rookies who are owning (Bellinger, Conforto)

Well, something based on Steamer probably. There's Razzball and Sabersim if we're talking about straight up dfs projections, or just roll your own from the Steamer files.
