    Is there a reason Fanduel hasnt posted this GPP yet? I noticed they have quite a few others posted already.

    Just curious when we can expect the Week 1 Bomb to show up. I’m interested in the size and prize payouts as the $10 GPP is paying out $10,000 to First Place with a $100,000 Total Prize Pool.

    I think a lot of people are looking forward to seeing the payout for the first $1 mill weekly sunday tournament.

  • sethayates

    If I’m not mistaken last year’s $300K NFL Bomb will now become the Sunday million. FanDuel announced it a few weeks ago but has not posted it yet. I’m guessing they are fine tuning the payout details. Last year the $300K Bomb was 13,380 players. Since these forums seem to be the place for wild speculation I’m going to take a stab and say the Sunday Million will have 44,600 players and payout $100,000 to first. My guess is they flatten the payouts a little this year and pay something close to 18% so around 8028 players will probably get paid.

    That will change very soon!
    Not sure why but it seems like NFL Fantasy players are getting a late start this season but it hit with a boom not a Bang. Will not be long before we are worried about getting slots and not the overlay!

    If this tourney fills it is 15% rake that’s pretty high

    13%, actually. Still higher than any of us would like.

    It is also a huge risk on the site’s behalf. I agree with what they did here. Let’s say that they set the rake at 10% and created this thing with 44,000 entries. For some reason you screw around and don’t get it before it fills. Your chance at $100K is gone that week. On the other hand if only 43,000 people join the rest of the spots remain empty and rake sits much lower. These big tourneys are a risk are rarely fill so you have to be careful with claiming the rake is too high. It probably won’t fill so the true rake will be much lower than 15%

    Anyone thinking this wont fill is crazy. It will fill well before kickoff time on Sunday.

    NFL DFS is going to go crazy this season.

    I don’t think it fills week 1. NFL growth progresses as the year goes on…..give it a few weeks and all that extra marketing kicking in & then I think it fills weekly

    We will have a 1.5 mil a few weeks in.

    I’m really expecting this to sell out easily.

  • ksinn2

    The way DFS is growing I would not be surprised if they have a mini bomb up the day before! Kind of like on a Tuesday when we end up with 7 Mini Squeeze’s.

    I think FD understands my previous post, NFL DFS is going to be INSANE

  • sabresrock29

    I want to see what the live final is paying out now

  • slinkymaster

    If they can fill million dollar gpp’s in baseball, they will do it easily in football. Fantasy football is a 10 times bigger market, if not more, than any other sport.

  • Hallison

    That is a huge jump in rake from 10% to 15% in the Bomb from last year. I thought the idea was for people to lose money slower.

  • fadein34

    We vote with our wallets. I’ve said it before and was laughed at but if we don’t do anything about it rake could hit 30% someday.
