    Is there anything out there like the Draft Best Ball tournament this year?

    Not sure why they wouldn’t pay first place finishers besides being pushed through – doesn’t make too much sense, considering the small payouts in the next two rounds if you don’t advance. You really have to make it to the final week to get any decent payouts – I feel like the payout structure should’ve been different.

    They only pay you once – same as multi day or cross-sport Survivor contests they have run in the past. The farther you go, the more you win but only get paid once.

    Why would I want them to pay me $8 now and $25 next when I’m going to win the $50K in 3 weeks ? I’d rather be paid $50K than $49,967 after my win in 3 weeks.

    Right if anything the 1st place teams should have been paid not the wildcards. Totally rigged system so the wildcards essentially absorb all of the overlay.

    I don’t think people are complaining about that as much as 2nd place teams getting thier $5 plus advancing when teams that got first place got $0 now and still advancing. Maybe I am reading the inital comment wrong as I agree that it makes the most sense to just get paid once in a couple weeks then small payouts every week.

    How come I don’t see any of my first place entries in the next round yet? Does anyone else see it in the live tab?

    I don’t see any of the 2nd round contests set up yet. Still only tickets for me. I only got 2 to advance in the $3 and none of my $20 advanced though so I can only speak to the $3 contest.

    So if we won our league do we have to redeem anything or are we automatically placed in a new league?

    Automatic

  • Supersharpie

    I think the tickets for the wild cards will also be autoredeemed.

  • Rickytango13

    They didn’t randomize the rd 2 milly contests. Wow, cool.

  • DougFunny

    I won 2 of my 20 3$ tournaments yet got 3 tickets to round 2. I finished 2nd in two as well so not every second gets a wild card it seems.

  • jleit13

    I am confused over all these comments? The teams that won there league and advanced WILL get paid when they get eliminated. The 2nd and 3rd place teams im assuming got there $5 and $3 back but if they don’t advance to the next round they won’t get anymore whereas if your a league winner and don’t advance this week you will get your $8.

    They’re mad that people got both a wildcard and a payout for 2nd, bringing their total winnings above the true league winners.

    Milly looks like it’s pushed through but my $3 aren’t showing yet

    As it stands right now the 2nd place wildcard teams got paid $5 PLUS advancing so they are guarenteed $13 whereas league winners are only guareenteed $8. I am guessing they will go back and take the $5 away from the wildcard teams to redistribute to teams not advancing but we will see if that is what will occur.

    Ha, I already spent that bonus cash and my balance is at $1.50, so good luck to DK in reclaiming it :-)

    Smart move lol

    If this is how they are doing it I feel duped, lied to and in a sense cheated. They are paying out differently than their rules state. If i knew this is how they would pay out the overlay (not how its explained in the rules) I would not have entered the last 10 teams I did.

    I agree as it really sucks knowing that Cole Beasley 31 points last week to steal me a 2nd win by 7 points actually cost me $5 as I would have been better off losing by a point and grabbing a wildcard spot plus the $5.

    The matchups. My 2 entries are both competing against essentially the same group of DraftKings users. One guy on Twitter has 9 entries competing against an almost identical group of DraftKings users.

    Just got an email from DK. Looks like they are in the process of randomizing.

    We are working to finalize the round 2 contests as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you may see your current round 2 “upcoming” contest disappear and then reappear with new opponents. This is to ensure that the correct opponents are being assigned.

    We will notify you when your finalized contest is available to view.

    Are the $3 through yet? I have a ticket to a 555$ final but no contests to put it in

    It will automatically be entered. You don’t need to do anything.

  • bdf

    If I can make it to the final round, my Josh Gordon pick might finally pay off haha.

    I guess I really should have gotten in the $3. I’ll “prepare” for next year much better.

    I’m sure like a bunch of us injuries just ravaged my team. My draft spot sucked for getting RBs. My “top dogs” were Jacobs & Singletary (whoops).

    Finished with 1797.74 with Mack, Sutton, Ross, and P. Williams.

    When I saw the $3 would overlay, I did four drafts in the final day before it locked.

    6th, 7th, 7th, and 1st

    it seems I got $22.87 for the first place and a ticket to round 2.
