The Best FanDuel & DraftKings Tournaments to Enter in Week 1

Below are the featured GPPs on the main slate for both FanDuel and DraftKings. These reports are designed to help 4for4 users decide which contests to enter each week.

Those looking to maximize upside should look for games with steeper payout structures—usually, these games pay out a smaller portion of the field with a larger percentage of the prize pool going to first place.

More risk-averse owners should seek games with flatter payout structures—contests that pay out a higher percentage of the field, give less money to first place and offer higher min-cash multipliers. Whenever possible, seek games with lower rake.
