  1. [caption width="468"] Dustin Johnson propelled 'mmcconn' to victory in the DraftKings US Open Millionaire Maker[/caption] In a final round of the US Open marred by controversy over whether Dustin Johnson made contact with his ball on the fifth hole, one daily fantasy golf player turned in an unquestioned perfect game. 'mmcconn' took down the US Open DraftKings Millionaire Maker with 468.50 points. His reward: $1 million. The number of lineups he beat: over 170,000. If you're not familiar with fantasy golf on DraftKings, you roster six players within a $50,000 salary cap. Crazily enough,
  2. [caption width="468"] How to use the late-swap feature on sites like DraftKings to your advantage in daily fantasy baseball[/caption] Of the many differences between the two largest DFS sites, none is larger than the late swap versus no late swap feature. FanDuel does not offer late swap, meaning once the first pitch is released in the first game on the slate, all roster positions lock for the night. On the other hand, DraftKings offers a late swap feature, meaning a roster position does not lock until start time of that player's game. There are some good reasons that, especially in the
  3. Eight weeks of the 2015 NFL season are in the books. Over on FanDuel, the latest winner of the Sunday Million was westcoast4, who tallied 215.54 points and earned $500,000. Entering Week 8, westcoast4 had just 35 wins on FanDuel and had been playing for a year. Let's take a look at his winning lineup. Don't forget to visit FanDuel to see what's brewing for Week 9. QB: Drew Brees ($7,900, 3.4% owned) Brees was a beast over the weekend. Rotoworld described the Saints/Giants game as "defense optional." At 101 points, it was the third highest scoring game in NFL history. Brees had 511 yards
  4. CIMB Classic Kuala Lumpur G&CC (West Course) Bukit Kiara, Malaysia 6,985 yard, par 72 The top 60 from last year's FedExCup Points list, the top 10 from the Asian Tour Order of Merit, and eight sponsor exemptions will tee it up Thursday, which means DFS contests lock Wednesday evening in North America. There is no cut in this event. This is the third time that the contest has been played on this course, so course history is only relevant for the last two years. The Malaysian Open on the European Tour plays here annually here also. Anirban Lahiri won that event in February. --- Q
  5. Week 7 brings us another batch of intriguing NFL games as well as a batch of matchups that are mostly irrelevant. I've been fighting the flu this week, so I wasn't able to preview the Thursday night game between the Niners and Seahawks. Here are the cliff notes: The whole Niner offense was awful, while they're defense actually played well. Russel Wilson was decent, but his backfield-mate Marshawn Lynch carried the whole offense on his back, resulting in an easy and boring Seattle victory. Let's take a look at what Sunday and Monday have in store for us... --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy
  6. Shriners Hospitals for Children Open TPC Summerlin Las Vegas, NV Par 71, 7,255 yards 4 par 3s, 11 par 4s, 3 par 5s. 144 runners, top 70 make the cut. @ShrinersOpen TPC Summerlin lies in the Northwest suburbs of Las Vegas and is a classic resort course. We have lots of history on this course and what we know is that scores are going to be low. The average winning score is -22.5 and the average cut line is -2.5. Major stats that stick out to me are total driving, greens in regulation, strokes gained tee to green, and strokes gained putting. You can play DFS golf on site

  8. It's free money Tuesday, the day after all the people playing NFL get paid. The only things to play in DFS today are a two-game MLB slate in the playoffs and a nine-game NHL slate tonight. I expect with the early start time and low guarantees for MLB action to be less than exciting, so I am devoting my energy to the NHL tonight.

  9. After another Thursday night game that left a lot to be desired, it's time to start getting ready for Sunday's action. With all the parity in the NFL, many teams will look good one week, lost the next week, and vice versa. Just like the teams they play for, a lot of NFL players will fluctuate in terms of performance. Paying attention to those weekly performances can help us get an idea of who will be coveted by DFS owners the following week. Let's take a look at the players everyone will want, and the ones who won't be so popular. You can register for Week 4 games on FanDueland DraftKings. We'

  11. We got our first taste of NFL action on Thursday night, and it was a pretty bland serving of football. While the Redskins and Giants didn't entertain us much, they at least wet our appetite for the main course on Sunday. Many players are available to choose from, so let's take a look at some guys I think will be very popular picks as well as some that will probably be ignored. Remember, like all my articles, all salaries appearing will be from DraftKings. Speaking of DraftKings, you can play Week 3 games there right now starting at $0.25. There's also a 100% sign-up bonus. Get started here.
  12. Another NFL Sunday is in the books and now it's time to start preparing for the next one. Several teams that looked excellent in Week 1 looked like the dregs of the league in Week 2 and vice versa. Teams we expected a lot from (Colts, Eagles) look to be in disarray, while a team like the Jets looks far better than most would have imagined. Oh, and the team in Seattle (that was a yard away from winning the Super Bowl) is 0-2. What does this all mean? --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com. Get in the ga
  13. Hello everyone. Welcome back to the third week of the 2015 college football season. We have seen some great games and also had some injuries to a lot of key players in the country. We get 15 games in the early slate for DraftKings and will focus our attention there. There's a lot to be excited about in daily fantasy college football, so let's jump right into the good stuff. Sign up for DraftKings here! Memphis 2-0 @ Bowling Green 1-1 2:00PM CT Line: Memphis -3 O/U: 79 Wow. Vegas is predicting this to be a back-and-forth shootout expecting 79 points between the Tigers and Falcons.
  14. Hello again, I'm back after a full weekend of football action. There were a lot of surprises as well as a lot of things we all expected. Overall, it was a pretty good opening slate of games, full of information to be soaked up and digested. Going into week 2 of the NFL season, there are still many things to wonder, but we've also been given a solid glimpse into what we can expect to come. --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com.

  16. There is a myth that one must construct "the perfect lineup" in order to win the million-dollar contests on DraftKingsand FanDuel. It's easy to see why this myth has been perpetuated – we're competing against hundreds of thousands of lineups in these contests and often our monstrous-scoring lineups fall far short of the pot of gold beneath the end of the rainbow. But reaching that pot of gold is often more about who you don't play than who you play. BALLAH (2) won the largest contest in the history of daily fantasy sports on DraftKings with multiple "meh" players in his lineup: BALLAH (
  17. Football! Are you as psyched as I am for this season? I am especially excited for this weekend in DFS, because it is the biggest weekend of daily fantasy sports EVER, especially if you add Tuesday to the weekend with the first ever DraftKings Millionaire Maker for baseball! --- Qualify for the Star Fantasy Leagues $150,000 Fantasy Football Championship for as little as $2 at StarFantasyLeagues.com.

  18. Sunday Funday! Lots of action today with MLB and NASCAR as we wind down the clock on summer and all things not NFL DFS. With week 1 right around the corner, we can expect an influx of new users this week as well as a decline in action for all sports not NFL... until Free Money Tuesday in 9 days, of course, and the first MLB Milly Maker that it brings on DraftKings. A quick industry note/gripe. Yahoo entered the DFS market in July and got very little traffic. With NFL approaching, though, they offered a hefty deposit bonus and started running higher stakes games, which got my attention
  19. Hello all, welcome back for part two of this week's DFS college football preview, the 9/5/15 slate. First, let's take a quick look back at last night's games. Sloppy football seemed to be the overall theme for opening night. A lot of turnovers led to a lot of unders hitting, bringing point totals down for most of players out there. Is that attributed to playing on Thursday night? I wouldn't think that would be the case since it is opening week. Perhaps it's the continuing theme of less hitting in camp and the end of two a days? It's something to keep an eye on in the early weeks of the seas
  20. Hey y'all, this is written by my friend Ryan Tepen. I used to back him in poker. He used to play football. He's our College Football expert, and he does a fine job introducing himself. Hello all you daily fantasy grinders out there, I'm Ryan Tepen, a former Division One third string long snapper at the University of Missouri. After my playing days were over, I continued to work with Mizzou as a Student Assistant Coach for then Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach Dave Christensen. I also worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach under Coach Pat Ivey. Following my time at
  21. TPC Boston Norton, Massachusetts Par 71, 7,242 yards. 5500 ft2 greens of Bentgrass at 11.5’ 57 bunkers and 3 hazards This tournament starts on Friday, not Thursday. 99 players in the field, Sergio Garcia is out. He’s ranked 31st in the FedExCup points assuring himself a spot at the BMW Championship next week, but he’ll have to do some work there because only the top 30 make the TOUR Championship in 3 weeks. Everybody gets week one of NFL off. The top 70 players qualify for the BMW Championship next week Top 70 and ties make the cut this weekend. They’ve playe
  22. Mmmmmmarrrrggghhhh. I have some extra hangover, would you like some? I made my first final table of a poker tournament in a long time yesterday. I haven't played very many poker tournaments in the last year and a half. I finished 6th for $11k and celebrated by drinking a case of beer and bottle of whiskey while ravaging the Allies controlled by roommate in a game of Axis and Allies. He went to bed and then I played Stratego with another roomie. I don't remember going to sleep but I remember waking up at 1:30 in the afternoon today. Full slate tonight. I'm only playing GPPs and will
  23. Happy Tuesday! Lots of action tonight with all 30 MLB teams in play. Big contests on both FD and DK tonight with the $25 Slam and $20 Tuesday Special both sporting $300k guarantees. We never had prize pools that big in poker on a Tuesday and we're just getting started in DFS. Can't wait until football comes around! Coors Field and Kershaw are both in play tonight, it's going to be tough to have both. I don't think I will be touching Kershaw on DK with his 15k price tag and less than optimal matchup. Don't get me wrong, Oakland isn't a team to be feared, and I think Kershaw is a
  24. You don’t know anything about sports? That’s fine. I do, and still felt outmatched when considering jumping into the DFS world. I bet you are good at analyzing data and applying that data to a gambling environment though. Me too. That’s exactly what got me into DFS. It took me about a year after Black Friday to discover Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS). A part of me was turned off by the fact that the same law that deemed online poker illegal also paved the way for people to gamble on fantasy sports, defining the game as one of skill. They were absolutely correct that fantasy sports ar

At the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, 100 teams competed in the live finals of the Fantasy Basketball World Championship, or FBWC. And at the end of the day, 'pwnasaurus' came out on top for $1 million with a score of 310
