Baseball Feed Issue

Our Baseball stat feed was out yesterday.  That prevented both live scoring and final boxscores to be properly obtained by the website.  All leagues were settled as a 0 - 0 tie with a prize split.  It is going to be difficult to manually score these leagues due to the nature of this outage, so we are requesting that you report any league ID that you feel you should have won, so we can verify and adjust the prizes as required.

We are currently working on resolving the issue, and have cancelled the early baseball leagues today.  Once the feed is back up we will schedule the late baseball games for today.  The outage does not effect NASCAR or NFL leagues for this weekend.  Sorry about that.

95% Payout Fantasy Football Leagues

Starting with week 1 of the NFL football season, Fantasy Sports Live has moved to a simplified 95% payout (5% Rake) structure for all $10+ Buy-in Heads Up Fantasy Football Leagues.  New buy-in levels offering this amazing payout amount are as follows: $10, $20, $30, $50, $100, $200, and $300. The $10 level pays $19 to the winner, the $300 pays $570 to the winner.  See how easy this is if you know percentages! Moving to a 5% rake structure vs. the typical 10% rake charged by all of our top Daily Fantasy Sports competitors, will allow up to 8 times as many players to be long-term profitable playing fantasy sports at Fantasy Sports Live.  This is a HUGE change to the dynamics of daily fantasy sports when the average player has a realistic shot of profiting long-term now at these lower rake levels vs. the handful of elite DFS players who can currently beat a 10% rake structure.  We want to see your hard work studying the sport, and constructing a competitive fantasy football team be rewarded with profits to your pocket rather than to an oppressive rake going to the host website.  We keep our costs low here at FSL, and we are simply passing the savings on to our valued customers.  We also lowered our multi-player fantasy leagues to an industry leading 7.4% rake, as part of our payout updates.

We are also considering the 5% rakes structure for our other sports so help spread the word about our industry leading 95% payout fantasy football leagues, and we will do the same with our fantasy basketball, and fantasy hockey leagues when they start up as well.  If you were wondering exactly how this compares with the major competitive daily fantasy sports sites lets review the site differences below.

$10 or $11 Buy-In Heads-Up Rake Comparison

Fanduel's Rake is 100% Higher than FantasySportsLive
Both FSL and Fanduel have $10 Buy-in level heads up fantasy football leagues.  FSL pays $19 to the winner.  Fanduel keeps an extra dollar and pays just $18.  Fanduel's rake is 100% higher than fantasty sports live.


DraftKings Rake is 100% Higher than FantasySportsLive
DraftKings also offers $10 Buy-in level heads up fantasy football leagues.  FSL pays $19 to the winner.  Draftkings grabs an extra buck paying just $18.  DraftKings rake is 100% higher than fantastysportslive.

DraftStreet offers an $11 buy-in level heads up fantasy football league, that pays $20 with a $2 rake.  Fantasy Sports Live offers a $10 buy-in HU league paying $19 to the winner with a $1 rake. Running the numbers this works out to 82% higher rake at DraftStreet vs. rake FSL.


DailyJoust's Rake is 82% Higher than FantasySportsLive

When you play against the oppressive rake levels shown above, you are around 8 times less likely to be successful in the long-term playing daily fantasy sports.  Why have the deck stacked against you, when you can play at the only daily fantasy sports website that is offering you a legitimate shot at long-term profitability playing fantasy sports.  That site is FantasySportsLive.
