Damn, I just realized what you posted.  I guess I never looked at the payout structure for that huge gpp.  Beating 457K other entries nets "only" $200.  I enter the big gpps too, but that just reinforces what ridiculous odds they are, and how top ended the payout structure is.  

I am such a low $ bankroll guy and like doing several LUs, but the 25cent gpps are also that way.  I read over and over how I would be better off putting that $4-5 in a couple SE gpps, but always get sucked into having fun building 16 LUs.  I think my best days in MLB were when I put something in a $2-4 gpp, and I am sure a good bit of that is how many few entries I have to beat.

Interesting to see no stack and still that high of a score.  Nice lineup. 

ETA:  I guess by stack, I meant that no QB correlation with your other combos.

Yeah, I don't feel like grinding games. If I am going to gamble, I am going to gamble to win big. However, the payout structures used to be a lot better IMO. It used to be that if you cashed you got back at least 2-2.5x your entry fee. I usually chose games where 2.5x was the minimum return. Which meant, if I could cash in 30-40% of my games I could (more or less) break even at the end of the year. That stopped two or three years ago. Now, I don't think you can routinely break even playing nothing but GPPs.

Started with $100, at $290. Should add another $50 to that if gurley hits his projections. Had most of that $100 in play

I usually never enter the Sunday Million, but won a free ticket from a Single Game entry for the PHI/ATL game, and got in the top 35 of the Milly for $3000. 1st place in a few smaller GPPs as well and nearly all of my GPPs cashed. 

Nice start to the season.

Kickerduel is the best. I just tied with 12 people for just over $900 and 1/12th of a signed Pat McAfee football!

$28 left in play tonite, $97 plus two $9 tickets out.  $304 in profit for week 1. 

Tonight I hit 10 of 12 gpps for less than $90 profit.   As someone mentioned before the math just doesn’t seem right even though it is

nice! I took a look at your lineup. I'm curious, what was it about that game that made you go with both Rivers and Gordon, thinking that they both might go off?

I thought I did well to profit ~$60 last week - some of you guys had great weeks!

I only play GPPs and my plan for this year is similar to last - play multiple lineups in the same GPP (25 cent entry :lol: ) and see what happens.  Last year (at DK) I was all set to win $700 in a 25 cent entry contest until S. Diggs scored that improbably TD against NO in the playoffs :kicksrock:

Thats rough. Ive pretty much given up on cash games for NFL too, I just dont see any edge. The cut line for the big $5 DK 50/50 was 200 points this week, thats more than alot of GPPs I was in. I played around 75% GPPS last week, and I plan to be closer to 90% GPP next week.

Definitely worth it for me especially with the draft.com deal.  I doubt it's still available but it was a steal.

$100 in, $404 out last week mostly using the optimizer.  @David Dodds opened my eyes to Fitz, Sanders, and Stills.  Consider it paid for.

I think @Devin Knotts will start crushing the college side in 2-4 more weeks.

KC DEF is dog####, going both Rivers/Gordon gives you exposure to all of their TDs and with their OC saying his biggest regret last year was not giving Gordon more receptions. I swapped out K. Cole with B. Ellington in most of my GPPs when Fuller was OUT, but not this one which was a bummer.
