Came out a little ahead today. Not bad. The strategy played out just wish it could have finished because might have won a little more.

$26 is awesome!

I finished in the negative. Where I won was when I stacked the value guys and left a bunch of money on the table. Weird thing is I had kept Jimmie Johnson in most of those and he finished high.

Lot of good contests up on DraftKings next week for the PGA Open Championship. They have the Milly Maker up for $20 plus several over contests with high payouts. Skipping nascar this week!

Had a pretty good lineup going yesterday in the PGA mini max. Nate Lashley was +6 on the front nine and needed him to get to +1 to make the cut. He got it down to +2 through 17 and needed to birdie 18 to make the cut but only could manage a par. If he’d made the cut and that lineup been in the milly i’d probably had a shot at a decent payday tomorrow but it’s in the mini and only 5/6 playing. My lineup in the milly is a joke. So bad. So very bad.

I have not even checked mine because I made a last minute change Wednesday night removing koepka and putting in McElroy after researching koepka's recent British Open performances.

@StormStalker I'd be interested to see any Fanduel NASCAR contests you entered today. I decided to do a 50/50 today instead of a tournament and blew up, taking 1st place overall out of 100 by 15 points. I've never been so disappointed to finish 1st place as I figured this lineup would have done well in a tournament. I had Harvick, Newman, DeBenedetto, Keselowski and Hamlin.

I also finished 6th out of 50 and 13th out of 100 in MLB 50/50's, but both way off 1st place. I bombed a DK MLB tournament.

I don’t play Nascar on FD. I lost a 7 man winner take all on DK by .75 of a point. It was a $5 buy in with $34.50 for first. My tourney lineups didn’t do to well lol. I ended up breaking even on my PGA lineups and was happy with that.

You gotta log in on FanDuel just about everyday because you don’t know when you will have a free entry into a contest. Today, I had a free entry into the MLB $5.55 contest. The lineup didn’t do anything but I appreciate the free play.

So close to bringing down a small GPP tonight. Ended up fourth after sitting in second for a while. Not a bad hit on a $2 play.

They will have to go through tech tomorrow before the race so starting positions could be affected if some cars fail. I’m gonna play some double ups on FanDuel. We’ll see how that goes.

NFL contests are already up but I got crushed last year. I’ll play week but I will need a better strategy to approach the season.

I signed up for Draft.com and I am completing my first ever Best Ball draft as we speak. I love the concept. Draft and watch, no roster moves.

I drafted 2 teams tonight. The first team had the 3rd overall pick and I really like the way it looks. The second team picked 9th and I'm not crazy about it at all. Draft.com posts projections based on the draft results and the projections agree with how I feel about the teams.

I'll do several more of these.

I drafted a team a couple weeks ago. I’ll probably do one or two more. Fantasy Draft is doing rake free contests, fwiw. They bought out Fantasy Aces when they shut down a couple years ago.

I'm about to start a Yahoo! best ball draft. 10 teams, $1 each, $9 in prizes. No rake free there. I'll probably stick with draft.com for the most part.

I’ve been playing more cash games in nascar vs playing gpp. You are only playing against 30-40 people vs thousands. Most of the ones I’ve been playing are single entry top 3-5 win depending on the contest. I crushed a $5 double up today but you got paid the same amount as the guy at the cutoff line..lol.

Like clockwork, DK cuts the Nascar payouts when NFL starts. I played the single game showdown tonight and it didn’t go to well. I’ve never really been any good at these single game contests.
