  1. Thanks Jolszews...I've notified the authorities. It should be corrected ASAP.
  2. Keep an eye out today...we (staff) are beta-testing it now for bugs, etc. Dodds did well on pricing--be forewarned.
  3. Just saw this now @Steeler (your @ didn't tag me?)... I think you're talking about GPP Domination by Phil Alexander? If not, I'm unaware of an article on our site that does what you describe.
  4. You'll receive a 1099-misc form if you profit more than $600 on any (and all) site(s). From there, you will be subject to any taxes (federal/state) due on that amount. The IRS will have a record of those monies, so I highly suggest that you don't follow the advice of the second poster here. DFS Taxes
  5. My recommendation would be to email Danny directly and ask him where/how he sources those projections.
  6. I don't recommend mass multi-entry (MME) for anybody just starting out--it is labor-intensive, deep in game strategy, and expensive. You will spend a lot of money trying to figure out how best to approach it. Leave it for the more experienced players. In the meantime, play in single-entry GPPs and 100-man tournaments. Hone your craft there & work towards multi-entry over the course of the season.
  7. I think I finished in the top 50 this week (??). You should get an email notification if you were awarded tickets, but I don't remember from last year if they show up on the site?
  8. I asked David about this earlier today. Obviously, I have literally hundreds of entries each week, so I enter dummy lineups early in the week & do my edits on Sunday morning. This evening, I was looking at my cash game lineups (I had two) and noticed that, somehow, I had two entries into the FBG Championship contest...the higher entry was one of those two cash game lineups, while the second was a dummy lineup that I hadn't edited from early in the week. I have a theory on what happened, but those details really don't matter... I don't have confirmation on this (yet), but we'll likely use my lower-scoring lineup if my "real" lineup is the highest of the FBGs...I'm not entirely sure what happened here, but we obviously don't want our subscribers having to beat me twice. Sorry for any confusion.
  9. It was there last year, brother! Glad you finally found it, though!
  10. Here is what you can expect for DFS content in 2017: FootballGuys' DFS Landing Page
  11. You are correct on all accounts. I haven't been part of that effort, but I think it was delayed slightly...I'm being told that they should be available this weekend. When I see them posted, I'll stop back to update this thread.
  12. PowerGrid for the main slate of Preseason Week #2 is now LIVE: PowerGrid
  13. Those are the only sites where I would recommend depositing money...going beyond them is risky, IMO.
  14. We have never posted any official DFS content for preseason games. There are a number of reasons that we've avoided it in the past, but we are working on putting together 'bonus' preseason content this year...we'll be sure to let you know when it becomes available. It won't be as extensive as our in-season content, but it will be enough to steer you in the right direction. Stay tuned.
  15. It's coming, fellas... We have traditionally not generated preseason content for a number of reasons. That said, we are putting together a few pieces of content for the next few weeks. Nothing official, no particular schedule, but there will be a couple of articles written to help narrow down your selections for preseason contests. The DFS Landing Page is due to go live in the very near future (I saw a mock-up this morning)...I'll stop back here to share the link when it's ready. A preseason episode of the PowerGrid was recorded earlier tonight for this Saturday's game slate--watch for it on our YouTube channel and The Audible podcast feed tomorrow.
  16. It's coming...we have a bit of "bonus" preseason content on its way to you guys. Just finished recording an episode of the PowerGrid for Saturday's 8-game slate, too...watch for it tomorrow AM.
  17. It is no longer part of the site after the NCAA shut down all DFS for college sports.
  18. I wrote that section...let me look and report back.
  19. Hey DC...many of us are just getting back from our annual retreat, so things might be a bit delayed. That said, I think whatever you're looking for (IVC's, VVC, etc) should be online by tonight.
  20. The FBG crew is headed to Knoxville to crash Joe's pad this weekend and while there is going to be a lot of milkshakes, football, and hijinx, we are going to talk business too. One of the things that continues to evolve on the site is the daily content. If you look at the archives from 2014 through today, you'll note that we have made great strides with regards to what we offer and how it is presented. That said, there is always room for improvement and that is what I'm looking for in this post. Basically, what I'm asking for is the following: 1) What current tools, features, and/or articles are absolute MUST HAVES for you moving into the future as an FBG DFS subscriber? 2) What tools/features would you like to see that are currently missing from the weekly DFS content currently provided? 3) *DM RESPONSES ONLY (PLEASE): If we were to cut articles to pay for new features (#2 above) what DFS pieces could you live without? If you don't have a strong answer to any of these questions, but have feedback for the others, that is 100% fine...just share what you can. I cannot promise that your feedback will result in exactly what you want, but I can promise that it will be carefully considered as we look to 2017 and beyond... Many thanks, John (tipandpick) **I'm asking for direct messages only for #3 because I don't want to offend any of our hard-working contributors if they see their piece listed in a public forum. I appreciate your cooperation with this request.**
  21. My apologies...it was my fault. I noticed it late this afternoon & corrected the problem. Should be good to go now.
