PrizePicks is another big hitter in the DFS space that is capitalizing on the boom of player prop betting by translating that into fantasy contests. With a user experience that is optimized via the PrizePicks mobile app, players can easily find everything they need via the bottom navigation menu, including lobbies, contests and user settings where you can find how-to manuals and more.
The available DFS contests revolve around player prop bet lines, but vary in game type with both traditional (betting on a single player to go over or under a prop) and versus (choosing a player to beat another player in a certain statistical category) modes. Each prop is assigned a fantasy value, based on how likely the Over or Under is going to hit. For every prop a user hits, they are assigned points to climb up the leaderboard.
PrizePick's prize pools are something to behold and a real point of difference from some other similar sites who are all trying to challenge the reigns of FanDuel and DraftKings. PrizePicks guarantees $100,000 in prize pool money for every week of the NFL season, including a $40,000 contest for Sunday for just a $20 entry fee, with the winner taking home $10,000.
While still finding their footing in a competitive DFS market, PrizePicks are making all the right moves to ensure that players are coming back for more.
