Tuesday Fanball DFS?

Has the Tuesday night $10/50 Fanball contest been stopped? Haven't seen anything since May 11th. Did I miss an announcement?

Re: NFBC Main Event Format For 60-Game Season

OK, I'll play the contrarian: I think that everything should just be pro-rated, like the player salaries, at roughly 37%. So an entry fee of $625 leads to a grand prize of $55,000. If that lower fee generates a higher number entries you can upwardly adjust the payoffs as soon as the season begins.

Re: 2020 MLB Season Opener: Thursday, March 26th

So the Japan games will be played around St. Patty's Day? Or are they not being played in 2020? Good Lord, they'll have to start spring training the day after the Super Bowl. Even so, they could still pull off a really early Opening Day from a weather standpoint. There are 14 teams that play either ...

Just a small thing, but out of respect, can Luis Valbuena be removed from the database?

Re: PreMature Draft 2018

Not quite sure about Merrifield going before both Rendon and Schoop. IMHO both of them in the 5th round are early bargains.

Re: It's The All-Star Break: So What Does 1st Round Look Lik

17. Anthony Rizzo

BA is down but he's picked it up lately, and 20 dingers/56 RBI/52 Runs at the Break isn't bad at all. I would be betting that he turns back into the 2016 version. And if you play in a league using OBA, he jumps up to mid-late first round IMHO.

Re: Looking For Feedback On NFBC Cutline Rules

Greg, when you say the goal is to "grow" the contest, is your main interest in increasing the number of owners, or the number of teams held by each owner? If the former, then keep FAAB. An owner who has, for example, three or fewer teams should be absolutely able to handle the FAAB requirements twic...

Re: NFBC Cutline Championship FAAB Deadline: Monday 10 ET

Looks like the traditional 'Free Agent' functionality is finally working. The 'Free Agent NEW' worked starting this morning. Not a great job by NFBC/Stats updating us as to why it wasn't working or when it would be fixed. But everything appears to be good now.

Two more guys, who have eerily similar numbers: Brad Miller at #259, qualifying for three positions while banging out .247/28/72/66/6. And an even bigger bargain with Jake Lamb, with ADP of #341, currently at .258/28/88/77/6. Sure would like to see a few more swipes and a higher BA, but it's league ...

Re: What's The Early Feedback On The NFBC Cutline?

I do think that expanding the draft to 38 rounds is a strong option. That could help reduce the first FAAB. That being said, I do think a first FAAB is necessary with a slight expansion of the roster and the ability to cut previous draft picks. A player like Carter Capps was likely drafted in a lot...

Well, I'm one of those stupid owners who didn't check the rules because I saw him in the pool and assumed, because he was there, that he was eligible.

This is a combination baseball and money play. From a baseball side, they got two very good prospects, especially Newcomb, who will be in their rotation in either 2016 or 17. They are also obviously huge believers in their minor league SS prospects. From the money side, it's pretty clear: 2016: if t...

Re: Most Surprising Pitchers to you?

On upside, how about A.J. Burnett? Overall ADP of just over 300, he's now 4-1 with a 1.37 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 53 K's in 59 IP. Pitches 7 innings almost every time and has yet to give up more than 2 earned runs in any start, which is a pretty impressive stat for a 38 year old arm. Downside? Alex Wood....
