MLB Fanduel

Any interest in a league?

Usually play two halves, with like a $200-$250 entry per half.

Was about to bump the thread. Are you referring to our league?

Lets do $150 entry 1st and 2nd half. 1st half will end with last day in June and 2nd half will start 1st contest in July thru end of season.

Drop the lowest score of the season which will protect against someone forgetting to set a lu once.

Similar to the yearly NFL one we run. Any interest reply in here

probly the price for entry.

I know I would not want to throw 5 hundy up against the likes of 3 or 4 of you guys. would be throwing $$ out the window. most bettors at the mall are small fry or like myself are just dipping the toes into the fantasy game.
IMO, there`s a small population of large dollar bettor`s and they are sticking with what they know and thats single game wagers of 50`s and hundy`s, 3-5 games per day.
You need to generate interest with small inexpensive programs and even shorter leagues over the season. I know it`s more work and does not seem worth the effort, but over the long haul I believe you would build interest, then confidence of your league members leading to higher entries and payouts.

Just my opinion

Makes sense what ur saying but at the same time I dont think $150 for a 3 month contest is too high and its nearly a 50/50 style contest with 2/5 winning as opposed to a winner take all contest.

I just dont think people like NBA/MLB games nearly as much as NFL.

Preferably I would play more nights out of the week than just 2 for the league but thats what theyll commit to than Ill take it. To me this is a source of entertainment during the week

I stick to the nhl myself, and even tho I wager both mlb and nba equally I have not stepped into any nba fantasy markets on fanduel. nba players may be too prima donna for my tastes, whereas mlb players perform with more consistency imo.

Just my opinion
We tried nightly tourneys before for like $5 entry. Issues were, we paid rake, we had to guess the number of people right for tourney or it did not run, and was still the same group of people.

So we went with what we have now, but are always welcoming new peeps.

I am always down for a friendly fanduel game, in any sport.

Fanduel sportsbook is horrible if you are decent bettor. I you use "Betting Resource" money management strategy or their picks, they will ban your account with in the 1st 2 months.
