    It’s that time of the week where we start looking at potential overlay across the various DFS sites. For those of you new to DFS, overlay is a DFS player’s best friend. If a DFS operator guarantees a tournament’s prize pool and the entry fees from players don’t hit that guarantee then they must pay the difference. This means free money for players and increases the expected value of each entry.

    • $150,000 First Down ($10 entry) – 6264/16875
    • In addition, most of the remainder of their GPP’s are between 30-50% filled currently.

    • $100,000 Touchdown ($10 entry) – ~42% to break-even
    • $50,000 Spike ($20 entry, GM Mode/Salary Cap) – 1246/2,750 (2,500 break-even point)
    • Most other GPP’s are sitting at or slightly above the 3-60% capacity mark at this time.

    • $50,000 Hail Mary ($22 entry) – 1231/2500
    • All of their featured NFL contests are well under half full including their $500K FAFC Qualifier ($109 entry) which sits at 258/500 entries.
    • Salary Pro Sluggo ($5.50 entry) – 614/2,000 entries.

    There’s a free $22 Hail Mary entry for new depositors that click through RotoGrinders links

    FantasyFeud and Fantasy Hub

    NFL GPP’s are just over 33% filled
    • Feud of Champions Qualifiers are between 20-30% filled

    Fanduel and DraftKings

    There will be overlay in many tournaments on both Fanduel and DraftKings. Both sites have such large player bases that it’s difficult to predict how many entries come in at the end, but 20% or more is likely in some of these tourneys. The live qualifiers for their Championship Events look as if they will have significant overlay. At FanDuel, the $5M Sunday Million is currently just over two-thirds full while DraftKings MillionaireMaker is about 60% full.

    If you see any overlay that could end up in the 30-50% range (and don’t mind sharing) please post it in this thread.

    DFS operators are required to guarantee the amount of money in their prize pools and if the entry fees from players don’t hit that guarantee then they must pay the difference.

    Thank you for compiling this, always helpful to know where the overlay.

    Since you are aiming the quoted text towards new players, its important to note that DFS operators are required to pay out the difference IF the tournament is guaranteed. There are plenty of tournaments that are not guaranteed and will just be cancelled if they do not fill. Sites are not required to offer guaranteed tournaments, but (almost?) all do to attract players.

    Smh. Let people find the overlay themselves. Everyone knows the sites. Should we enter the contest for them too?

    FantasyHub overlay has been substantial in the $2 – $100 GPP range in week 1 & 2 NFL, deep payout structure, you will like the salaries for roster construction. Currently 125/830 in their $2 entry $1500 GPP for week 3. Happy grinding.

    They increased the size of their big GPP this week and it’s looking like it will overlay as there are only 1,726 entrants out of a possible 16,875 in the $150,000 First Down ($10 entry). With the “No Train” rule in place (each lineup from each individual user must be unique), the chance for overlay is substantial.

    The First Down appears to just be Multi-entry, not Multi-entry Unique. Are you sure it’s unique?
