After the merger of Fantasy heavyweights DraftKings and FanDuel it could be argued that the new number two American daily fantasy website on the block was FantasyAces.
A unique platform, well run contests and still an edge for those willing to put the time in.
That was of course, until now.
Fantasy Aces had thought they’d secured some crucial invesment in the form of a takeover from fellow competitor Fantasy Draft.
— FantasyDraft (@FantasyDraft) January 30, 2017
That deal fell through at the 11th hour and has seemingly left Fantasy Aces no choice but to file chapter 7 under the Bankruptcy law.
Fantasy Aces released the following statement to members yesterday morning.
“The FantasyAces team truly regrets to announce that we are unable to sustain our site and business operations effective January 31st 2017, filing for protection under Chapter 7 bankruptcy law.”
“After spending over a year attempting to secure long term capital, including recent negotiations with two notable companies which subsequently failed to close, we are left with an unresolvable financial burden and have spent every waking minute attempting to find a solution for our players most importantly.
We have unfortunately exhausted every possible financial option with no success. We fought as hard as we could, in the end without a major infusion or acquisition we just were not able to make it.
Our site is temporarily shuttered and all accounts are on hold during this time while we work with the bankruptcy court in finding the fastest possible solution for our players.”
The Woot and Wye Show: Divisional Round Recap & Conference Championships
With Woot vacationing in Huskisson on the New South Wales South Coast, both episodes of The Woot and Wye Show this week were co-hosted by RJ Ochoa of Inside the Star and Ocho Live. As a Dallas Cowboys expert, RJ Ochoa provided unique perspective on the Dallas Cowboys loss and what the future holds for them in our divisional round recap podcast.
We also discuss on the show Aaron Rodgers’ legacy, that third and twenty play, Brock Osweiler’s historically terrible play, Seattle sulking, Eric Fisher’s holding penalty, why James Harrison is an alien, how a Kevin Peirre-Louis holding penalty changed a playoff game and why Travis Kelce is a dick.
In the second show of the week we preview the two Conference Championship Games, both of which look to be blockbusters. Also on the podcast we discuss Adrian Peterson’s future, Kyle Shanahan reportedly accepting the 49ers Head Coaching job and the Colts’ failure in trying to land Jon Gruden.
The NFC Championship Game features the likely 2016/17 NFL MVP in Matt Ryan taking on arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in Aaron Rodgers. This game opened up with a game total of 60.5 points by Vegas, making it the highest game total in NFL playoff history. Vegas, as always, nails it because we expect a shoot out. This is the first game since 1970 that features 2 teams who have scored 30 or more points in their last five games. The last time they met the Falcons were victorious 33-32.
Both Ochoa & Wye believe that the quarterbacks will have big games and this game could ultimately be decided by a minor playing making a play on special teams or forcing a freak turnover. The key match up in this game no one is talking about is Vic Beasley against Bryan Bulaga. The Falcons need to get pressure on Aaron Rodgers. Both us are taking the Falcons outright because we trust their overall offense more with that running game but we think it will be close and are leaning Green Bay against the spread.
The AFC Championship Game will see the New England Patriots finally play a real opponent in the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Patriots have had a dream run facing a clown car of crap quarterbacks for most of the season. The best quarterback they have beaten is Andy Dalton. The last time they faced an elite quarterback: a loss at home to Russell Wilson. The Steelers have also had a relatively easy schedule but are coming off an impressive win in Arrowhead, well as impressive as a six field goal performance can be.
The Steelers offensive line allowed only 3 total pressures on Ben Roethlisberger against the Chiefs dominant defensive line.
Ninety is the magic number in this game. The Steelers are undefeated this year when LeVeon Bell rushes for 90 or more rushing yards but the New England Patriots haven’t allowed a 90 yard rusher in 24 straight games. The Steelers offensive line has been dominant down the stretch and only allowed 3 pressures last week against one of the best defensive lines in the league. They have the edge up front against this Patriots front seven. If Bill Belichick does what Bill Belichick does and shuts down an opposing teams best weapon then the Steelers will need a big game from Antonio Brown against Malcolm Butler. Brown has 15 catches for 230 yards a TD in two games while be shadowed by Butler.
Even though the Steelers defense has been playing much better down the stretch, allowing 17.3 points per game in their seven-game winning streak to end the regular season and 14 points per game in the playoffs, you trust that Tom Brady and this offense will put up plenty of points like they have done all year. Ochoa thinks the Steelers will win this game outright while Wye prefers the Steelers against the spread with New England winning by a field goal.

The Woot and Wye Show – Wild Card Weekend Recap
After a holiday hiatus, we are back to review one of the most lopsided and underwhelming wildcard weekends of the past few decades. This weekend’s games had a total margin of victory of 76 points. That 19 point differential average is the highest of any Wild Card Weekend since 1981 and makes this opening round the most lopsided since expanding to four teams in 1990, per NFL Research.
Despite all four favourites winning comprehensively (which sets up an incredibly juicy divisional slate of games), there was still plenty of talking points from the action. Most of that circled around the Green Bay & New York Giants game, although Thomas Rawls loveable personality tried his best to overshadow that.
We marvel at Aaron Rodgers absolutely destroyed it for the fourth consecutive week and then we debate the skill to luck ratio in him pulling off Hail Mary throws like the one below. Rodgers over the past two seasons is 5 for 7 on passes of 40 yards or more in the last two minutes of a half. The rest of the league in that same scenario is 2 for 39.
Also on the podcast, we discuss Le’Veon Bell calling himself the Steph Curry of the NFL, the whole #BoatGate saga involving Odell Beckham Jr (mostly how ridiculous the whole thing is), Matt Moore’s toughness, Jack Del Rio’s decision to not turn to Matt McGloin and the Lions fail to reach the redzone once against the Seahawks.
The Woot and Wye Show Moneyball Week 14: A Seahawks Stack
We have reached the final month of the regular season which means you have limited opportunities to set your optimal Moneyball.com.au lineups and win money.
Luckily for you, The Week 14 edition of The Woot and Wye Show’s NFL DFS Podcast for Moneyball has plenty of tips and tricks to help you cash down the stretch.
Wye is joined by friend of the show, Colorado’s finest, Luke Charles (@lukecharless) to give you their start, sit and contrarian plays across all the main positions in the NFL format on Moneyball.
There is plenty of content for you to digest before setting that Week 14 lineup, just ask Chris Baker…
At the quarterback position, both of us like a certain quarterback this week around the $8,000 mark and both suggest a stack with their wide receiver one purely because the match up against the respective secondaries is too good to refuse.
Charles, recommends Russell Wilson and highlights Dom Capers struggles with mobile quarterbacks and Wye recommends Andy Dalton who is coming off his best game of the season despite missing his AJG (his AJ Green).
Those receivers to “stack” with your starting Quarterback? That is of course Doug Baldwin. Green Bay rank dead last in the NFL against opposing wide receiver one’s and Baldwin definitely meets the criteria of a WR1.
If Doug Baldwin is not your forte, Jimmy Graham is an elite option at Tight End in a week that do not have many elite options.
The other stack is a bit controversial in that it is not Brandon LaFell. Wye recommends stacking Andy Dalton with Tyler Boyd. Boyd has 20+ targets over his last 3 games and faces a hapless Browns team. Boyd could Jarvis Landry (7-120-TD) like success in the slot against Cleveland.
Other players mentioned during the podcast include Brock Osweiler (yes, really), Rex Burkhead, Thomas Rawls, Michael Crabtree, Malcolm Mitchell, Dontrelle Inman, Cameron Brate, Vance McDonald and Dan Bailey.
