    Team RG

    We’re excited to announce the second running of our Single Entry Series in partnership with FanDuel!

    Here’s the gist of the contest format this time around, including a key update:

    o There are 5 weeks of contests and your top 4 scores will count towards your total.

    o The top 3 players (based off their aggregate totals in the series) in each entry level will advance to the Final on January 1, 2017. All 6 finalists will be guaranteed a prize for their efforts but the champ will walk away with $10,000 to call their own.

    o The biggest change is that there are now two different entry levels to choose from, both running at the same time. You can enter one or both of these buy-in tiers: $5 or $50.
    o The NFL Single Entry Series contests will take place each Sunday @ 1pm ET from 11/27 to 12/24.

    We’ll have the leaderboards updated after each week of contests for both the Spike Series and the Hot Route Series. You can check out each leaderboard here.

    On top of the prizes in each contest and the series finals, the top players will earn free entries into other contests on FanDuel – including tickets to the Gunslinger and Monster.

    The complete list of prizes and full details can be found on FanDuel’s announcement page.

    Good luck!

  • crazypaul

    In! Thanks for this!

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Yea, this is cool, I missed the first one because I didn’t play on fanduel but I have an account this time!

    Now just gotta deposit…

  • mannmicj

    FYI – Top 15% get paid out. Many of Fanduel’s GPPs have this 15% payout structure this week. Not great. I really enjoy the Single Entry series, but this payout makes it less attractive.

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Maybe you’d be happy with a single entry double up series

  • BIF

    Don’t usually play on FD but I’m in for the $50 entry series

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Trying to enter the $5 and it says tournament can not be found!

    Details say only entry to the spike will count. Am I SOL?

    It may have filled up. Lower entry SE fill up quicker than the higher entry ones.

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Thanks. Disappointing though…

    Can’t there be an alternate? Even if we had to declare it here before start.

    I’ll be joining in this

    Yes, anyone is eligible.

    oh boo, was hoping it was RG’s only. :)

    Great news!

  • TheFFOracle

    Love this! Any chance you can run it for weeks 1-16 next season? See who the true top tournament players are.

  • neglafes

    Love the idea, the only flaw is that my first two weeks were busts so……… I’m out. At least it was good for fanduel to get me to play on my least favorite DFS site for a couple of weeks. Good luck to everyone!

    Just an FYI, yahoo DFS does this and for free I’m currently set to make around 100 bucks as I have had good luck.

    Can we get a confirmation from RG on this? If you missed week 1, you’re still eligible for the cumulative score total, with the four weeks you do play. I assume the answer is “yes” but wanted to get confirmation. Although it’s really hard to finish top 3 overall anyway, even if you score really well.

    Don’t take this as official confirmation, but I’m 90% sure that you’re still eligible, but just at the obvious disadvantage of having your “lowest score” be the zero for the week you didn’t play.

    Yes, only your top four scores count so you can miss a week and still win.

  • Nosuckoutplz

    Yea, once I got shut out the first week, I was out. Now just out of curiosity I looked and apparently I’m not the only one who quit/gave up/got shut out because today’s game is seriously under-entered. Even though I’m playing for nothing extra I’m gonna enter it for the overlay lol

    Hopefully that’s not a killer for this ever running again. These can be successful, they just need to make sure not to kill engagement. Maybe add weekly bonus prizes or something to keep people who have no chance at the leaderboard engaged

  • danliebl

    Do I get a bonus for having all 4 of my scores within 1 point of each other? I am very consistent.

    127.46
    128.04
    127.64
    128.44

    even though I am in the top 250 now, if I don’t get a bigger score this week, I am afraid I will be passed by quickly.

  • freeannyong

    Is there a way to get the leader board to only count 3 of the 4 right now?
