Fanduel went live in Alabama this afternoon. Stormstalker and I both jumped on the freeroll Fanduel provided for Alabama residents welcoming us back to the fold. One can only imagine Draft Kings and Yahoo! will be back soon as well. Some other interesting concepts have popped up in the three years since DFS was last legal in Alabama.

It’s been a long three years but so happy I can play again from my house and not just across the state line. I’m gonna get in on some PGA this week and NASCAR this weekend. I’m hoping DK goes live soon. This moved pretty quick. Just a little over 2 weeks since the Governor signed the bill.

Watching the Cards game. It is so quiet in there you could hear to pin drop.

I was gonna play the main MLB slate today but the 14 game slate was a bit overwhelming so I’m just playing the late slate which only has 4 games.

I can’t believe I didn’t post about that DK free roll. I’ve moved up to 39th at last check.

I have won on all but one Draft Kings contest I have entered this week(been entering with crowns, whatever that is supposed to be). Conversely, I am 0 for Fanduel.

I think I might try some NASCAR today.

I’m playing Nascar on DK today but not on FD. I’ve stunk up nascar all year though so I’m sure I will pick every guy that has some sort of issue..lol.

I like Harvick based on his starting position, coupled with the fact he drives for a top team and can get around a road course. His ownership will likely be sky high because of it, so the question is do you have to roster him to be able to compete or do you step out hoping he has a bad day, thus putting all the other players spending the big money on him at a huge disadvantage? I'll probably do 3 or 4 lineups, with one that doesn't include Harvick.

If Harvick is 40% owned and has an issue you would have a huge advantage if you fade him. If he crushes and you don’t have him then you’ll be in trouble. Jones is starting in 32nd and in a good spot, imo. He’ll be super chalky to though. Kyle Busch might be a sneaky play. He’s priced down and ownership might go more towards Harvick and Truex. He might be a good pivot off Harvick.

So I have 4 entries in NASCAR and 4 entries in MLB on DK, and then did the same thing on Fanduel. I'm playing the 25 cent games as I get back into the swing of things. I do have a $1 NASCAR entry on DK using the last of my crowns.

I do have some investment in both Kyle and Kurt Busch and Erik Jones. I've avoided Larson, which means he'll lead every lap and win. I also have a few entires for Keselowski. Parker Kligerman has been my value guy as I think I have him in 3 entries.

Jones is going to the back but it’s okay it shouldn’t hurt him that much. He’ll still be scored from 32nd.

Well I jumped in with my FD account. I've got 5 entries from tried and true to truly experimental. Ready to race. Meanwhile, over in PGA land Chaz Reavie has saved one of my best entries after Spieth crashed and burned.
