    I was comparing FD and DK’s NFL prize pool structures and am amazed at how terrible FanDuel’s are this season. For example:

    $333K Kickoff 52.9% of the prize pool goes to the Top 5 entries
    $175K Rush 44.3%
    Sunday Million 40%

    By comparison, the notoriously top heavy Millionaire Maker on DK is only 28.9% to the Top 5. Last week most of their GPPs were only 8-20%.

    I actually won the $50K Quarter Jukebox last week on DK, and despite it only paying out 7.8% to the Top 5, I was very happy with winning $2,000 on a $0.25 entry.

    Do better FanDuel.

    sadly you have to spend you day looking at that stuff to figure it out…anyway its the rake not the payouts that should piss people off…16% is now the new normal

    Agree with OP. I made an account to just post this a week or so ago. I am amazed at the payouts on FanDuel. Some tournaments, I feel literally ripped off, e.g., the tournaments where for example the top 2000 out of 25000 get paid (I made this up, but an example that I see a lot on FanDuel is the small amount of people who are in the winnings out of many entries). The payout structures for FanDuel are just bad. I’ve injected a lot of money to the site, but I too am considering scaling back and looking at alternatives.
