Ways to improve Yahoo Daily Fantasy/ Fix Flaws.
I found a flaw in the payout structure for double ups. Most sites take a bigger rake for smaller entry fees. But for double ups, the rake for the $25 double up (10/23 double )is worst than any other denomination.
Also, the only way this product will grow is to offer higher prize pools. Rather than offer multiple small tournaments, I would recomend having just 2 contest for each dollar amount... $1,$2,$5,$10,$20. One single entry, and one multi entry.
I understand with the limited max entries these contests will never be as big as the other major sites, but they don't need to be.... At the same time there should be some $20k+ tourneys for NBA, like there used to be, at least once a week.

The contest variety can certainly be improved. I would love to see bigger multi entry double ups and 50/50s.

I agree, that’s the reason I can only use YDL for baby contests and have to go over to the Big brothers to win big tourneys.

Agreed, need more “draftkings-like” contests (obviously with the multi entry max). Need multiple multi entry double ups and multi entry tourneys at higher dollar amounts

To follow up on this in the 2017-18 season, its only getting worst. Lets see some bigger tournaments. Tonight is an 11 game slate and the biggest contest is $5k prize pool .... thats pathetic for the #3 DFS site.
