With the popularity of the “FCK Challange” run by @FishCakeKing I decided to run a low-stakes Mini FCK Challenge for those who want to follow along. Each night that the FCK Challenge runs (weeknights with 5 or more NBA games) we will enter the \$1 Single-Entry GPP on DK (Daily Dollar). If you are interested in playing, your username should be listed below. At the end of the night each night, I will open the CSV for the \$1 “Daily Dollar” and use the VLOOKUP function in excel to match each player’s score to the leaderboard. The results are located on a Google Spreadsheet at this link.

Players listed in the above spreadsheet have paid \$10 and confirmed entry. At the end of the contest period (March 2nd), we will determine a winner. The winner will be the player with the lowest average finish position. For example, 69 players are participating. First place is worth one point while 69th is worth 69. We will drop each player’s lowest two finishing positions. So if a player has a 1st, 12th, 35th, 67th, and 69th their total finish score is 1+12+35= 48. The lower the score the better.

At the completion of the contest, prizes will be paid as follows:

1st: \$200
2nd: \$100
3rd: \$70
4th: \$65
5th: \$60
6th: \$55
7th: \$50
8th: \$40
9th: \$30
10th:\$20
Total: \$690

We will play the following slates:
Game Dates: Starting Jan 25th every 5 game+ slate till we finish
Game Dates: (at the request of some guys who have been playing for years no sat and sun)
Jan 26,27,28,29
Feb 1,2,3,5,8,9,10,19,22,23,24,25,26,29
Mar 1,2

Thanks for playing everyone! Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!

I promise not to be in 1st for too long. Still learning. Thanks for putting this together

I wasn’t able to join the \$1 single entry but I was able to get into the \$1 multi entry tournament. Here’s the link: https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/20507701?uc=331989177

Welp looks like I’m out for the rest of this tournament… Hawaii just sent a cease and desist to fd and dk and now I’m locked out of both. Anyone know a way around this or are my dfs days just done for now?

@Unclemaks A wild guess is probably a vpn service.

Still playing in the Daily Dollar tonight, but results will not count for the Mini FCK Challenge. That being the case, I should have a monster night tonight!

• captmorgan

Likewise I had the best night so far and of course on the off day

of course I put up 300+ last night…..welp, here’s to another 240 point night tonight!

• ClevelandPhil

Last night before the AS Break. My consistency keeps me in the top 5!

@gussler22 you are on one hell of a run!

• gussler22

Thanks Phil. I put up a dud last night with draymond, Neto and afflalo. Blame amontyyyy. He got in me into DFS a couple months ago

• bretboy

bumping this to the top so you guys don’t forget! Hoping to make a late run towards the top!

• bretboy

this is still going on correct….?

• ClevelandPhil

Heck yeah it is – scores are still being updated.

This is easily one of the biggest weeks in the contest – Monday-Friday all count. It is a shame the Daily Dollar has gotten smaller and smaller each week/day though. 15 0’s put up on February 19th though…

I keep forgetting

• sethayates

I will update last night’s scores when I get home from work. I was looking at things over the weekend. I’m pretty much out of the running but it seems like everyone near the top 10 has a real shot at 1st. It should be a tight race to the end.

• sgaffney

Has the daily dollar already filled today? Or was there none posted today, because it’s not in the lobby…

For absolutely no reason DK shrunk the Daily Dollar from 8K players to 4K after the break. If it’s full (I can’t check from work) you can send me a free H2H and I’ll just use your score from that. Just click create H2H then invite “sethayates” and I’ll accept it.

• dmarmo

It has filled. 4700 entries today.

They’re usually posted by the end of the previous nights slate, easy enough to reserve an entry if you remember. That’s what I do at least, especially with it shrinking for no reason

Cool, thanks man. Yeah I usually do it first thing in the morning but I’ve been working a ton lately so didn’t get to it till the afternoon. Cheers!

I hit you with a free H2H Seth.

Two days left!

Looking through the contest yesterday, it is going to be very close!

I just updated the standings. I also highlighted the two worst scores for the top 15 players on the finish position tab. If you are gunning to pass someone, you’ll need to calculate the difference between your score and theirs and also determine their worst score.

For example, TheEvilEmpire is in 1st with 281.5, he’s currently dropping a 38 and 39 finish. Heibs22 is in 2nd with 308 points. He would need to gain 26.5 points. Basically, The Evil Empire locks up 1st place with a 26 or better. If he fails to do that, he just needs to stay within 26 of Heibs22.

The battle for 10th is also interesting. Jarredsc7 has the edge on winkychrist by 0.5 points. They do have to worry about some people chasing from behind but their biggest concern is whoever finishes higher tonight between them would take 10th (assuming no one from behind passes).

It should be a tight race to the finish. Good luck tonight!

The results are here. The easiest way to look at them is the Finish Position tab

I’ve made a huge run over the past week or so, been a lot of fun.

• ClevelandPhil

Ugghhh the last week of February destroyed me. I’m excited to most likely finish in the top 5, but I had a shot at the win until then.

Thanks for putting this on Seth, I had lots of fun
