Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

need 18 total from kershaw to win one of these bracket seats

https://www.fanduel.com/contest/1355...228,193880082/

one time

actually if i get 17 then i guess i would win too because of tie breaker rules (if the rules for the bracket are the same as the qualifier)

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

lol.. Syndergaarg looked great... and/or the Dodgers looked bad. Still didn't do too bad all things considered. This game is crazy 0_o , but w/o it I don't think I could watch baseball

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

48.25 tonight avoided Clayton (just couldn't get the hitters i wanted). Ended up going Wacha, and had Lucroy, Cain, and David Ortiz all put up good numbers. Makes two nights in a row. DFS can really play with you mind. It makes me feel like the highs aren't as high as you hope and the lows aren't as low as you think. Weird game can really mess with your mind.

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

I usually make a random lineup on FD and change it the next day. I've noticed the past couple of days after I change lineup, when I join a contest its been putting my original lineup in there. Almost cost me a bunch yesterday until I noticed it.

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

Make sure you refresh the page after putting in your original lineup if you have the software open in multiple tabs. I've had that problem when I had two tabs open, on one tab I update the lineup and save it, close the tab, and then go back to the other tab and join games it doesn't update it and it still puts in your old lineup. If you have the second tab open you have to refresh that one after you update the original or it won't get the changes.

I've never had it do anything like that when I've only had one tab open though. (If you're using the app then I don't know. I've never used it for lineups).

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

Also, how do you bum hunters do it? I was bored yesterday so I scanned the h2h for like an hour and found a couple of games, but they were usually taken before I could get it.

I only managed to find one newer person in a $270 and a $50. Rest were all $10 and under. Seems like a huge waste of time

Seems like a waste of time, but many players do it.

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

the concept of the best players avoiding each other and all of them focusing their attention on "bums" or bum hunting killed heads up online poker. I remember on FT and Poker Stars seeing guys with so many games open and none of them wanted to play each other. so the lobby has 10 guys who have 10 tables open each and there's a 100 tables and no action going on.

I believe FD and DK and any site that wants to be a taken seriously long term has to look at this. If player A on a site constantly gets crushed by player B he should have the right to get in his options and set it so player B Can't play him heads up anymore. Bum Hunting IS profitable when done correctly but BOTH (PLAYERS AND SITES) should realize that it cannibalizes the games and creates an environment of fresh money who loose and think " well there just too good! Dfs was cool idea but I'M out". Sites should give all their effort to make sure this doesn't happen.

It would preserve the game longer then dumb things like no late switches on FD etc.

I can't confirm for 100 percent certainty, but It's probably software....it's also probably against the Terms and Conditions. I doubt guy making great money playing fantasy sits there pressing the refresh button all day long every 15 seconds and filling games out with fish.

The more likely scenario is there probably using illegal software that allows them to set a line up go chill at the beach while it searches for fish that fit the parameters set. it scoops up as much action as quickly as possible and player gets home @ X time before roster lock looks at daily variables and makes changes necessary (star gets a day off late scratch etc). Since all his games are set he makes a few late switches before roster lock and can be on his jolly way to the bar to chill out and print money off guys who have no idea what happened.

Like I stated before I'm NOT 100 % sure this happens. It's just the most logical way in my mind it could happen.

Didn't seat scripts play a role in this also? I wonder if high volume and high stakes players will come up with some sort of algorithm or code that allows them to scoop up "bums" inmediately

Re: MLB 2015 DFS Thread

I remember when I just started playing on Fanduel I strictly played H2H games and I would create 25 H2H games every Sunday during NFL and 'chargers1221' (or something like that) picked up every game immediately
