    $8 DK GPP has a real flat payout structure. It’s very interesting. In many ways that’s preferable given how truly luck-based finishing first v. 10th is.

    I like my early lineup and I’m leaving $5200 in salary on the table

    As an Oilers fan, I’m very interested to see how EDM2 does with the freshly called up Puljujarvi… I’ve never been convinced that he is as good as the hype he had when they drafted him, but here we go, he’s prob an upgrade over Slepyshev, anyway!

    yes he did :)

    On 11/11, at almost 11:11 my time, the scores are 1/1 1/1.

    Mind blown? No. I’m just bored at work.

    Who honestly makes the prize pool for DK? One day they have like 20% of prize pool for first then another day in the week they have 6% of prize pool for first. The $8 on DK just doesn’t make much sense. So annoying that Saturday usually have the lowest prize pools for “main pools” on both FD an DK but usually have biggest slate.

    As previously mentioned by Felix, only $40 pool makes sense and also the $4 FD pool isn’t bad.

  • goleafsgo14

    for a gpp that is less that 4 thousand people would a 3-3-2 stack be better than a 4-3-2?

    But maybe the $8 does make sense!?!? Are we sure we want such a top-heavy NHL GPP when the difference between 1st and 5th can be a single block or shot or a couple of either?

    Edit. I suppose, ideally, we’d have today’s $8 GPP structure that pays out a lower % of the field so that the top 10 can be increased.

  • mathewsmarner

    just waking up, that being said, marner needs to step up his game in absence of mathews, two assists last night, one coming in o.t..

    don’t know of any other notable injuries besides getzlaf

    I want to enter it but at the same time, if I win it, I’ll be pissed that I didn’t win it when the top prize was $10K!

    Yeah, $2k just seems so low for a first place for an $8 GPP. Even $3k would make the win that much more happy-making. $3.5k, to make it 10% of the prize pool. That seems sensible.

  • Canuckage

    I think 10% for first is like the sweet spot for prize pools that target both casual and hardcore DFS players. A top prize of 2k just isn’t that appealing to lots of players but that might be just me.

    The bad thing with those terrible GPPs on DK is that I’ll pivot to the $40 contest and probably lose a lot of money.

    lol same :P

    maybe it was their master plan after all

  • yisman

    McDavid and Draisatl combined had two shots!

  • Blahaaron

    Came out ahead 75 cents. That was fun. Kerfoot is a gem. 4 goals 2 assists since they gave him duchenes spot.

    That’s 3 more entries in the Jukebox I guess! On my side, my 3/3 Condon didn’t work out as planned!
