Thumbs up 2017 NFL DFS

gl to all this season

expecting week 1 overlay to be massive. basically every contest on yahoo last night took in 70-80% of max entrants across all formats. some even lower.

had no one going, hoping the hunt/hill/gillislee owners are balanced out by ones with brady/gronk/kelce/randoms

Me too. Signed up for a bunch of yahoo to get into those overlays and duck Thursday. Saw one guy with only Hill, Hunt and Smith. Heck of a start there.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

Just filled out my Billion dollar lineup. I figure when I cash that I'll just quit

I have to assume the odds for a perfect lineup are greater than powerball and with all of the millions of lineups over the years there probably has never been a perfect one.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

yahoo only allows 10 max entry per tourney

don't think the big 2 have much overlay but could be wrong

How many will be flexing McCaffrey today? O/U has to be around 20%.

yeah i'm not sold on that story. a "perfect" lineup would also require going well under the salary cap since theres always going to be a few random players going off

Curious what the ROI for the pros are in these at this point. was in a 50 person 50/50 and almost everyone had the same players.

I just played my first ever game for real money DFS. 20% rake on a $5 50/50, unbelievable.

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

paying out $9 for every $10 in entries is a 10% rake and the standard at all low stakes

yes it is tough to beat especially the later you get in the season

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

i guess it felt like 20% rake because i was only paid 80% of my buyin, i dont know.

but ya, there was $100 in buyins, and $90 was paid out, so 10% rake

Re: 2017 NFL DFS

Oh, good news. Since it was on Fanduel, you actually paid 0% rake since they don't have rake, only entry fees.

Planning on 100k this week. Not going to get greedy and expect the milly. But will come from behind waiting for Giants/Bucs. Should be fun
