I only play the NFL prime time and CFL Thursday/Friday tournaments. There is a lot less players to choose from. Some dude is making bank. He basically enters with every possible combination of players and wins 1st every week.

What is the difference between Fan Duel and Draft Kings? I thought they were both pretty much the same thing?

On Fan Duel you are just a Fan Dueling. On Draft Kings you are a King drafting, much better obviously.

Fanduel you have to pick a kicker on NFL games. I'm not a fan of that at all.

If one thing doesn't do and it really doesn't, one must try another

Angry

Have not played either Fan or Draft since their OWN employees were caught w/their hand in the cookie jar back in 2015 or 16. Other than that you're playing against Whales w/access to large ass computers. So No Mas!

I.E. "Instead, I came across a different sort of problem: a rapacious ecosystem in which high-volume gamblers, often aided by computer scripts and optimization software that allow players to submit hundreds or even thousands of lineups at a time, repeatedly take advantage of new players, who, after watching an ad, deposit some money on DraftKings and FanDuel and start betting. Both companies mostly looked the other way. And, when evidence of the competitive advantages enjoyed by these high-volume players became too overwhelming for the companies to ignore, DraftKings and FanDuel enacted rules that in the end are likely to protect the high-volume players rather than regulate them. In any case, a stricter ban on computer scripting would have been functionally impossible because, as a representative of FanDuel told me, D.F.S. companies cannot reliably detect it on their sites."
