    I haven’t seen any signs of the Survivor games coming back which is really sad I enjoyed the DK survivor series for baseball and Fanduel’s Survivor series last year for NFL. Are any sites planning on bringing this format back and/or do RG players want them?

    I absolutely loved those tournaments and it’s a tragedy that they’re gone. I’m assuming the sites figured out that having your money locked in all season is less preferable to cycling rake on a weekly basis.

    The overlay on the NFL contests was large last year. I don’t expect them to return.

    A lot of grinders would sign up for those in 2 second if they made them. Post them ahead of time and have qualifiers. It couldn’t hurt to keep your hardcore grinders happy.

    I loved them, i agree with Pops22, run satellites this weekend, and start in week 3,4,5. lots of fun.

    They dropped them last minute, and the industry is way bigger this year, no way they would overlay if they ran same size this year

    This topic saddens me every time I see it.

    Survivors are amazing. Basically running cash lineups all year for GPP type payouts.

    Please Survivors, come back.

    I love the survivor tournaments and wish they woudl run them more, even if they are smaller tournaments (such as the 7 day, 180 or so entry ones DK ran for MLB last summer on a regular basis). They don’t have to be huge but a big survivor series in addition to smaller, continuous survivors would be ideal to me.

    As for locking up the rake, I can see how they would prefer more churn, but at least for me, if I am still alive in a survivor that means I am coming back to your site to make another lineup, and when I make a lineup I will enter it in multiple contests, so that is more rake for the sites. If I don’t have a survivor I may or may not play that day, so being involved in survivors just increases my overall amount of play as well.

    Looks like I will need to check out Fantasy Aces, the big sites just don’t listen/care and they don’t offer a rewards program (or even reload bonuses) like they should either.

    That’s a good idea I’d love to see week long survivor in MLB and NBA.

    Rules says 250 max… you try regging more than 50?

  • danliebl

    Awesome, does anyone know if this is the only one they are doing? or are they going to release a $25 or more again? it will determine how many entries I use in the $5… or are they on wait and see approach?

    I’m going to guess its wait and see… If this fills I’d suspect we’d see more bi levels

  • kantiger77

    I’d love to see if it the stakes were lower. The one on FA right now is $22.

    I emailed support about this. They responded that the contest is indeed 50 entries max and they have updated the contest landing page to reflect this as well.
