Week 12 Big Guaranteed Prize Pools Breakdown

rotogrinders misc grinder giants small

This week over $25,000 was awarded in “Guaranteed Prize Pool” contests across the daily fantasy sites! That’s a boatload of cash, and all this on the heels of the $40,000 Guaranteed FFFC Finale this weekend in Vegas. You may have noticed these large guaranteed contests quickly growing in popularity in Daily Fantasy Sports, and if you’re smart you’ve played in them as well. For one low buy in you’ve got the shot at hundreds in winnings, and on SportsGeek you’ve got a shot at thousands! This article will take a look at all the tournaments with a $1000 Guarantee or greater. If we leave any out please let us know!

SportsGeek

SportsGeek.com is the hands down leader in the large prize pool contests. In fact, that is all they do. Each week they run three contests – a $109 buy in, $5,000 Guarantee, an $11 buy in, $5,500 Guarantee, and the whopper, a $55 buy in, $10,000 Guarantee! First place gets paid out $2,000 in the $10,000 Guarantee. SportsGeek courteously caps the number of max entrants so that the customer never experiences a rake higher than 10%. The site is full of gamblers who love to enter multiple teams. Every Saturday it seems like the monetary contribution from players is not going to be enough to meet the guarantees, but then on Sunday morning the gamblers come in and enter tons of teams. This week SportsGeek regulars VegasMike and Las702Vegas entered over 20 combined teams in their contests. Las702Vegas was the big winner, taking him 1st in the $5k for $1350, 2nd in the $10k for $1370, and a slew of smaller cashes. Not a bad week for just a few events! A full breakdown of the SportsGeek Results can be found at the bottom of this article.

FanDuel

FanDuel is entering the Guaranteed Prize Pool contests with a bang. The FFFC was an awesome promotion culminating in this week’s LIVE $40,000 Guarantee tournament in Las Vegas! This week FanDuel filled the void left by the FFFC Qualifying Contests with Guaranteed Contests – a $10 buy in, $2K Guaranteed and a $25 buy in, $2000 Guaranteed. Both tournaments easily exceded the number of entrants required to meet their guarantees, with 278 and 113 entrants, respectively.

Grinders Cal (playing as Braskey) and GeneralV both came up big, taking home over $1300 between them. Cal finished 2nd ($350) and 9th ($70) on 10 entries in the $2,000 Guaranteed. He leveraged big scores from Hillis, Bowe, and Obamanu to total a whopping 167 points, which still wasn’t good enough to beat emanon’s 169! GeneralV had a nice $550 win for 2nd in the $2500 Guarantee. His core line up of Rodgers, Hillis, Tolbert, Bowe, and Andre led him to 160 points. The good General finds a way to post these whopping scores week in and week out. Watch out for him at the FFFC Finale! Grinders dominated the $2500 Guarantee, with JMP5029 and Whits23 also taking home pieces of the action.
