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

    Here are the details:

    o There are 6 weeks of contests. You can enter the featured contest as many times as you want during the week. Your top 4 weekly scores will count towards your total.

    o The top finisher each week gets an all expense paid trip to Miami to compete in a live final for a shot at $10,000 first place prize.

    o On top of the prizes in each contest plus the live finals, top finishers will earn free entries into other contests on FanDuel – including tickets into the Slam and Jumbo Dunk.

    o The entry fees for each week range from $2-$100.

    We’ll keep the Leaderboards updated so you can follow along with all the action. You can check out the leaderboard here

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

    Good luck!

    Yes, your two lowest scores get dropped weekly.

    When are the leaderboards updated

    Why are the leaderboards not updated

    How cool would it be to crown a big three sport single entry champion. Or post a cumulative leaderboard. Basketball following up on the NFL, MLB single entry series. Now you guys figure out the weighting system because the NFL series was in the 600s and MLB varied from the 700-800s depending on buyin levels. NBA was at 400 just last night.

    Think about how engaged the players would stay over all the fantasy seasons. Also pull in players to try maybe a weaker sport for them if they did well in one of their strengths.

    Any idea what a leaderboard combined for MLB and NFL would’ve looked like as the NBA is just getting started.

    Lastly I know just raw scores are easiest to track but place in the standings reflects more the truest level of expertise because of scoring fluctuations on some slates.

    Ampowell13 and delaneysue, thanks for asking about the leaderboard update. It was late today, but shouldn’t be going forward. I had to shake some cobwebs loose in our updating process.

    Do you have to be an RG member to qualify? I am noticing many players are not linked.

    Confused a little if top 4 scores count and lowest 2 get dropped then are there only 6 contests a week or 7?

    Correct, that was a mistake by me.

    We always count your best 4 contests in Single-Entry series. The rest of them get dropped. So since there are 7 contests each week in this series, we actually drop the bottom 3, not 2.

    Sorry about that!

    Wonder that as well, also wondering if the prize structure is only applicable to RG members? For example, with RG and non RG members I’m in 20th place but if only counting RG members I’m technically in 8th place. Can anyone clarify how this works?

    As the top RG guy I hope that’s how it works – but after reading the official rules on FD it never says anything about it. So I don’t think it matters if you’re on here or not.

    That was the impression I got as well when reading through FD rules… I hope it works out for you to be 1st, as I can’t imagine any scenario (on a 2 game slate) where I put up enough points to knock you out of the top spot lol

    How does it work for this second week? I see the first contest is $25, does it stay like that for the whole week?

    Appreciate the contest, it’s good to see some promotion of single entry tournaments. Only suggestion for future tournaments is you should use percentile finish and not raw score. The raw scores for NBA can fluctuate so much on a given night that some scores (even high finishes) on a night could be completely useless if the other nights are extremely high scoring.

    Hey guys, wondering here how I get my account linked as an RG member for the contest. I see my name on the list but it is not highlighted in blue as a member. I do have an account so I am confused a bit.
