When I click on the link it says "restricted location".  I'm not in any of the states listed that bans it.

What happened to the prizes?  :(

I asked them to cut down the maximum # of people allowed in the pool because everyone wanted this to be just JetNation. So this week if we have all 350 slots filled FanDuel will take in $3500 and pay out $4330.

Hey @Maxman- thanks for setting this up. I haven't really kept up with anything this week, but was there a resolution on the issue with non JNers in the pool from last week?

I posted an update in the week 3 thread in the fantasy football forum. Basically they opened it up because it didn't fill up. But we have an exchange back and forth because they gave us the league on Friday afternoon (two weeks in a row).

I asked them to keep the participant pool lower this week so I can be a JetNation only league.

They said they will give me the league next week on Monday. Hopefully they do, if we have a full week to promote it we can get a lot of JetNation people in there.

Thanks!

I'll preface by saying this is not a complaint just a question..  if we don't fill it up can we expect them to open it to the masses again?  you can't really blame them I'm just wondering.

This is the sort of thing they did last year a few times. 

If a handful of JN members want to compete against other known members, we can create our own contests. I did it last year with the "Beat the Ape" challenges. I'll still do the JN pools that Max gets them to set up, but if they open it to gen-pop, then don't be surprised if JN members get shanked... so to speak.

I can't promise anything but I specifically asked for a lower contest pool so that we can have our own league. That is why they went 350 instead of 750 like last week.

My hope is that we get a league in the 400 - 500 range on Monday next week and we come close to filling it. Getting it early in the week is huge imo.

Yeah my only issue is that I do zero prep and other than thinking about matchups from what I know.  I don't care to compete with guys who spend countless hours looking at how player X performs in 50 degree weather as opposed to domes etc etc etc.

I don't have the energy or desire to do all that research.  Not interested in the same games as professional dorkduel guy who has his 10 perfect lineups and is scanning the board at 12:50 for small games to pounce on.

We should find one of those guys and kick the ever living sh-t out of them.

Why do you assume his jacket isn't already covered in tears and feces?

Won't let you pick Jets or Dolphins. 

That game isn't on the board because of the early start. Same goes with the Thursday night game every week. Sunday at 1pm is the beginning of the week as far as this league goes.

FYI the game is now open to the public. Still a great tournament and thanks jet nation!

Ah, I am sorry that they did that. Screws us up with them giving us the league on Friday afternoon.

Here is what I am thinking for next week. They said they would give us the league on Monday. I have them create a smaller league. They will reduce the prize money but it will be just us.

What does everyone think, how many people should we aim for?  Thanks.

It doesn't seem as bad as last week. It only got to 329 of 350, and at least the winning scores are reasonable again. I'd vote for 250-350...seems like we can fill  that range based on the season so far.

I don't know. We promote it on Facebook and Twitter, but that is to Jets fans that follow us there and not ringers. I would say we probably got 250 or so on our own. Maybe more but I didn't check. I know we have 150 sign up pretty quick on Friday.

I could do 300 to be safe maybe with a 5 per max. This way we fill it on our own (assuming that we get it early in the week.

that complete bs reversal of that ingram td is going to cost me a chance at first.  the guy a couple points ahead of me has Graham going tomorrow as well...  no way to overtake him.

I'm actually fine the way things are. Even with it opening to the public we only had 329 entries with a prize pool of $4,330. So basically we contributed $3,290 dollars in entries and we are awarded an extra $1,000 dollars from Fanduel. That is a GREAT deal. Not a good deal, a GREAT deal. Sure a few outsiders may sneak in and win a few bucks, but we are all coming out way ahead in terms of value compared to EVERY other similar tournament on fanduel or other sites.  

Look at the average fanduel contest and you will see prize pools of $5k with 520 members contributing $10 per entry. Meaning Fanduel is making a profit on the pool. In our league, fanduel is LOSING money on us. 

If people want a small friendly fanduel league we can start a 50 person, 1 entry per person league. But there is no reason to stop this fanduel league while it's still great value. 

 

Just my 2 cents.

This actually sounds good and I like the 5 max.  

Count my vote in for this proposal.
