When walking around the soggy but beautiful Quail Hollow today, I had discussions with Fowler, Hideki, and Bernd. Before leaving to go back to my Victorian Style house for the weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to bump into Bobby aka ArtestDFS, who is here today celebrating his HUGE recent DFS PGA win.
Question 1: Who is @ArtestDFS ?
“My name is Bobby and Iive in Wisconsin. I’m just a guy who likes to play DFS and help others win. I played basketball in college and have always been hooked on sports and fantasy sports.”
Question 2: How did you get started with DFS?
“I saw commercials for FanDuel when it first came out and played it ever since. I joined DraftKings about 2 1/2 years ago to try something different. I never turned back once I started with NFL and won a bunch the first season it started.”
Question 3: What makes @ArtestDFS different from other providers?
“I think what makes me different is that I’m 100% real and uncut. Not that other providers aren’t, but I say what I feel is right and I’ll stand by it. I will also fade the chalk until it kills me. Yeah, I might lose a night or three but I trust my non-chalk plays and don’t go off what everyone else is doing.”
Question 4: How is your overall record either in one or multiple sports since the beginning of the year ?
“To be honest, I don’t keep track of numerical record. I know it’s something a lot of people do and SHOULD, but will all the sports and different slates I play, I’ve just lost track. One thing to say about it is, I haven’t deposited on FD and DK in a long time plus making the subs money and answering their questions is more important than my own record. I’ll let my subs word of mouth speak for my success.”
Question 5: Do you have any success stories or big wins playing DFS?
“I have won over $1000 in contests about 3 times in NBA. Once last year and twice in 2015-2016. In one of those wins 2 years ago, I won suite tickets to the Cavs-Bucks game at the Bradley Center. I’ve also had about 10-12 wins of $500+ on NBA over the past 2 seasons. PGA this year has been great. Won $800 last week between FD and DK, and 2 weeks ago, I won about $400 between the sites. NFL is where I’m still looking for a huge payout. I’ve won about $500+ 5 times or so but still looking for the ever elusive big win.”
Question 6: How can people get ahold of @ArtestDFS on social media?
“Feel free to DM me anytime or tweet me. I’m open to all questions and concerns.”
“My top tip is always manage your bankroll. Regardless of any winning streak you’re on, or losing streak, don’t lose discipline and bet more. This will only get your in trouble. Keep a set bankroll to play and stick to it. Also, single entry contests are the way to go. Avoid as many pro/computer generated lineups as possible.”
