      2019 DraftKings FFWC Finalist

    For those new to the DFS world, Overlay is a player’s best friend.

    DFS Operators are required to guarantee an amount of money in their prize pools. If the entry fees from players don’t reach the guaranteed prize pool amount, the site is forced to pay the difference out of pocket.

    This means free money for players, and the opportunity for a positive expected value move.

    At the time of this posting, 2:30 ET, both StarsDraft and Draftpot’s $10 buyin $100,000 Guaranteed Tourneys are set to overlay.

    StarsDraft:
    As of 8 AM ET there are just over 3300 entries, over $65,000 in Overlay. The cap on the contest is 11,250. The breakeven (no overlay) number of entries is 10,000. This could easily overlay 40%. There is a “No Train” rule in this contest – each lineup from each individual user must be unique. That will help preserve this overlay as the clock ticks down.

    Double your prize promo – The RotoGrinders-referred player that finishes highest in week 1 gets his prize doubled. This could net you an extra $10,000.

    Remember to click through this link to get started.. All new RotoGrinders-referred depositors also receive a free entry into the Week 1 $100k, a 200% deposit bonus up to $250, and one year free StarsDraft Incentives.

    Draftpot:
    As of 8 AM ET, Draftpot is at 3200 out of 11,000 entries. 10,000 again is the breakeven point. Significant overlay is in the cards.

    Click here to get started on Draftpot. RotoGrinders-referred players get a 100% deposit bonus up to $1500.

    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.

    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.

    Been keeping my eye on Drafpot’s GPPS this weekend – may have to redeposit if there is a decent overlay happening!

    Does this info hurt or help us?

    It certainly helps the sites.

    Definitely helps us. Always keep in mind, even as big as RG has gotten, it’s still a small fraction of the actual DFS player base.

    Lots of overlay on FantasyDraft as well.

    Here is where we are on our larger GPPs.

    $250K – 3,458/11,120
    $100K – 2,455/9,260
    $50K – 2,998/11,120
    $40k DU – 1,726/4,444
    $10K – 2,386/5,556

    Good luck to everyone today!

    I have 7 tabs open waiting for closer to kickoff to see how much overlay I can snipe.
    My body is ready

    Hey guys – just a heads up for grabbing overlay at StarsDraft.

    The contest is unique-multi enter – so you wont get ‘trained’ by large multi-enter users, but you also wont be able to grab overlay at the last second. If you want to take part it’d be a good idea to either get your entries in early or create lineups in our lineups page that you can have ready to go should the value be there.

    Another note we haven’t touched on much – we are running a $1,000 Freeroll, $1,000 Depositor Freeroll, and $1,000 / $500 Silver / Bronze tier freerolls this morning. Sign up to StarsDraft through RotoGrinders and deposit to gain instant access to on of those last two. Good luck today!

    i can’t even get the starsdraft lobby to load… i would be entering way more lineups if the site was more responsive…

  • y2mulder

    DK, and the more established sites should fill up. Yahoo might take a massive bath.

    about an hour out and Feud has good overlay brewing:

    1m—-$525 Q: 46/84
    1m—-$55 Q: 237/826
    50k—-$33: 781/1720
    25k—-$109: 133/256
    10k—-$5.50: 507/2065

    I really expected this not to happen to StarsDraft today. With the number of poker players they have had on their platform over the years for big Sunday tournaments I would have thought they would be prepared.

    I can’t get my lineup to enter on your site! Busy trying for 15 minutes now! StarsDraft Fail.

    Same here….that overlay is sweet, but things have jammed up.

  • y2mulder

    This might be a day of reckoning for some sites.

  • BreesToGraham

    @ Starsdraft…..this blows! Been trying to enter one lineup for 30 mins and site is non-responsive!

    You said it man.

    Have a hard time believing they can’t give back all these entry fees if you can’t get a chance to edit before lock.

    I don’t like being the guy that says FAIL to everything, but this is pretty bad. Of course, crickets from a staff that has been surprising responsive all week.

  • travs424

    entering lineups on week 1 between 12-1 is always difficult. largest traffic day of the year

  • xandamere

    Sometimes I wish I played on more sites, but it’s hard to really learn the pricing systems on a bunch of sites – I feel like I’d just be throwing darts, and even with overlay that seems dubious.

  • y2mulder

    Yahoo Million $10 Overlay: $260,000
    Yahoo $25 250K Overlay: $90,000
    Yahoo $5 100K is HALF FULL

    I couldn’t resist throwing in another $50 / 10 entries into that $5 GPP.

    Yahoo site moving flawlessly and very quickly BTW

  • 100rings

    just saying… FantasyDraft.com that site is 100% improved and has massive overlay and is NOT crashing right now, go get it and good luck!
