    DK has a free lowball contest on the 24th, where you try to score the fewest points possible. They also have the regular free mlb and nba for those interested. FD also has their free home run challenge, and a free Core 5 (new type) today.

    I have googled it. How does it differ from DK and FD? They just appear to market the fact that less pro's use their site so it's easier to win. lol.

    Supposedly, they offer live in-game and prop betting, but I haven't thoroughly checked into it yet.

    They tweeted at me to check them out, so I obliged lol. I can let you know how it is later in the week after I've had a couple of cracks at it, if you prefer.

    Okay, crossing my fingers and hoping this works!

    The document explaining the spreadsheet and how to use it: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1av6yAnIEzNgL62-hxMvvf4VRM-Sc6mIvgDzRrZ8gzjQ/edit?usp=sharing

    The spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

    Remember, this is designed to be used as a base for your own system, not an out-of-the-box solution. I've intentionally omitted quite a lot, for which it will be up to you to implement. Many of these things are already set up to be used, but the specific algorithms need to be decided upon and added. I've done my best to describe how to do so, and even included an example for how to implement one of the most important (Handedness).

    Features:
    • Automatically detects fantasy game type and adjusts scoring settings as appropriate.
    • Stats data that automatically updates itself.
    • Lots of knobs to turn to tailor the predictions as you desire.
    • Automatically pulls in starting lineup information
    • Filters players not in the starting lineup for a given day, if the lineups are posted and the spreadsheet has detected them.
    • Ability to ignore individual players, or entire teams.
    • An easy to use list (in the Optimal tab) of all the players, broken down into the appropriate columns depending on which fantasy game you're playing.
    • No scripts! What you see in the cells is all there is.
