    I dunno about everyone else but last year I got my ass kicked on DraftKings almost every week, ended up losing whatever I had deposited. Learned near the end you have to do the smaller contests to stand a chance at profiting, but even then you get matched up constantly with guys that have "big contest wins" attributed to their accounts, likely using some math to help them win.

    So, this year I'm trying to start my own contests and use the Titans-related twitter account I run to get a weekly contest going to hopefully push out the math wizard competition. I have 5,000ish followers, so not sure how many(if any) will join and thought I'd reach out to you guys to fill some spots as well. If it doesn't get filled this week I'll lower it to 10 players next week in effort to fill it.

    As I said it's a Titans-themed account so likely the people joining will all be Titans homers as well so it would be wise to take that into account. I'll be updating this post every week with the link.

    11 spots remaining for week 1. Looks like it will most likely get filled. (starts Sunday) Only one player with any of those high experience badges so far. I know some of you guys use draftkings so jump in.

    Like the idea but I don't want to play in a small contest with ChipotleAddict and someone with an experience badge named easyfnmoney.

    I think you can make private contests. If you go that route, let me know and I'll send you my account info.

    You can't ban people, I imagine he joins every public contest available if he is that good. You've probably been in many contests with him before lol.

    If you look at any contest with 10-20 people usually about 1/3 of them have those ridiculous experience bars, in the more public contests it's even more.

    edit: just looked up and down the available contest list with 20 people(any $) and chipotleaddict joined pretty much any with at least 10 people already in. you can't get away from him lol
