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's Rake is 82% Higher than FantasySportsLive
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
DailyJoust also offers an $11 buy-in level heads up fantasy football league, that pays $20 with a $2 rake.  Like above with DraftStreet, the numbers work out to 82% higher rake at DailyJoust vs. FSL.

DraftDay's Rake is 60% Higher than FantasySportsLive
DraftDay offers an $10 buy-in level heads up fantasy football league, that pays $18.40 with a $1.60 rake.  DraftDay keeps an extra 60 cents paying just $18.40.  DraftDay's rake is 60% higher than at www.fantastysportslive.com.

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.

Doubleheader Issue Today

Today we had an issue with daily fantasy baseball as a result of the the TEX/BAL doubleheader.  Last night when leagues were scheduled the double header was not on the schedule.  When the MLB added the second game, they rescheduled the previously scheduled game to an earlier time, and added a later game.  This put the rescheduled game start time 3 hours prior to the league start time.  As a result we were forced to cancel all leagues with a 7:05 PM start time, as the scoring was complete for one of the games prior to the start.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

New Lower Heads-Up Rake at FSL!

Effective April 1st 2012, we have lowered our Heads-Up rake for three of our higher buy-in leagues. When we lowered our rake on our lower buy-in leagues in late 2010, our rake structure became a bit to flat, so we wanted to provide some additional incentive to move up in stakes.  It is now even easier to profit from your fantasy sports knowledge at FantasySportsLive. Our Heads-Up rake is now in the 5.3-7.4% range.  Our Heads-Up structures after the update are shown below:

Cost / Prize / Rake

$2.7 / $5 / 7.4%
$5.4 / $10 / 7.4%
$10.8 / $20 / 7.4%
$21.6 / $40 / 7.4%
$32.4 / $60 / 7.4%
$53.5 / $100 / 6.5%
$107 / $200 / 6.5%
$212 / $400 / 5.7%
$264 / $500 / 5.3%

NBA All-Star Weekend Fantasy Basketball Leagues Today

Today for the first time ever you can compete in Fantasy Basketball leagues for money that include the NBA All-Star game.  We have created a new fantasy basketball structure that includes the NBA Rising Stars Challenge and the NBA All-Star game.  The rising stars challenge consists of rookies and second year players that were drafted to play on team Shaq or team Charles Barkely (Chuck).  The game goes off at 9 pm est. tonight, so you will need to draft your team for All-Star Weekend prior to that.  Blake Griffin will be playing in both games so we doubled his cost, but other than that it will be just like any other daily fantasy basketball league offered at FantasySportsLive.  We broke new ground earlier this year with our innovative NFL Pro Bowl plus Superbowl fantasy football leagues, and here we go again with innovative NBA All-Star Weekend fantasy basketball leagues.  Sign-up today and be one of the first to ever play fantasy basketball over the All-Star weekend!
