Nice. Hopefully I turn this $5.00 into another $50 aha. I've already turned a freeroll into $90 so hopefully I keep the luck rolling :box: Thanks for doing this for us though.

Yeah, he's serious. He's a good FF player. It's hard to flip your money like that with the NFL, because it would take much longer. But Barro has won a decent amount on betting MLB. If you know what your doing in MLB, you can win every night. It's easy to win every Sunday as well. It just takes longer to build a stack.

For the past 3 weeks, I've joined 10 player leagues. $25.00 buy in's. 50/50 leagues, meaning the top 5 walk away with $45.00 each. I've placed top 5 all 3 times. For 50/50 leagues, just build a solid roster from top to bottom and you stand a very strong chance of placing top 5.

Now, 10 player leagues, with only 1 winner is much harder to win. I've won 1 of those, that's how I went from $5.00 to $45.00. But I've learned to stay away from those 10 man leagues, with only 1 winner. Luck of the draw. Ok, I won't lie, I put down $25.00 in a 10 man league this week, with a chance to win $225 lol. Then I joined the JN league and a $25.00 10 man 50/50 league. All of this fun, because of a simple freeroll you had in place. I didn't even place in the freeroll either. I finished 11th of 68, but enough to win that $5.00 from beating "the expert".

These links are my winnings thus far...

Why I went with Sanchez as my QB is beyond me. Especially against the Ravens. Sanchez had negative points. I would have won that JN league and $100.00 with a QB that put up 12-13+ points. But honestly, I only went with Sanchez to stack my entire roster, because Sanchez was very cheap that weak. Without going Sanchez, I wouldn't have been able to go Calvin Johnson, Jets defense, Fred Jackson etc because of salary cap reasons. So it all evens out in the long run.

http://www.fanduel.com/entry/AESDAM
http://www.fanduel.com/entry/WPRLMN

And this is why I like to stay away from the 1 man wins all leagues...

http://www.fanduel.com/entry/UBWCCK
http://www.fanduel.com/entry/NQGWXR

If I would have had ANY PRODUCTION from my RB's during the 2nd link, I win that league hands down and going away. It was bad luck, Wells got hurt and missed just about the whole game and Mendenhall did nothing. I think he was banged up well. But yeah, if my RB's would have done ANYTHING... I would have turned $10 into a quick $90.

This week I have a killer roster in place. Took my time with the roster, and it's my best one to date.

But yeah, you can win some money on this site, just gotta learn from mistakes and learn which leagues to stay away from. Head to head and 50/50 leagues are your best bet to (just about) double your money every bet.

Nevermind, just checked it out. ("minimum met so contest will run")

Good, I hope the league stays at 9 people. Gives me a better chance to turn 5 into a quick 50.

Thanks for doing these Max, but yeah, it's not that you "stink", it's just... You have to take your time when filling out your roster, and look at overall matchups with each and every pick. If it doesn't make sense, don't draft em. For example, I understand Alex Smith can be taken for the cheap, but you have to think about it man... The QB position is the most important position in fantasy football, and for the most part, football in general. You can't take Alex Smith and expect to win, especially considering the fact that San Fran features Frank Gore like no tomorrow. I took Roethlisberger for one reason, and one reason only... He was going against the Patriots, who have the worst NFL defense. That was a guarantee 20+ points before kickoff, so I spent the fantasy money on Roethlisberger.

GL this week, you'll improve, just take your time with the rosters.

In the interest of full disclosure -- please don't thank me for doing these. Although I am happy you are winning money, they did provide a financial incentive to have us promote these leagues! I liked it though because they were fair, 20 people enter at $5 each and they give out a total of $100 in prize money. Plus the hundreds they gave out during the free rolls.

You are right though I fill this out in 2 seconds...not looking at matchups etc. Definitely is the key.
