What are Fanduel points or FDP?

Fanduel points are what you are rewarded with each time you enter a cash contest. There is not set number. But I can say that the more you play. The more you will get. For example, you will get more FDP points. For playing 12 cash game contest. Then you would with 4. That can change. If your 4 games total amount exceed your 12 games. Then you will get more for the 4 than you would 12. It all comes down to whichever contest has the most money invested. You are guaranteed some FDP each time you play a cash contest. So no matter if you win or lose the contest. You will be rewarded Fanduel points.

I often save mine until I get in the hundred thousand. But I play at a very high volume. So I accumulate points very quickly over a short period of time. If you are new to this. You may want to use yours every chance you can. Or you may have a lower saving amount. No matter what you choose. It is all used for the dame purpose and that’s to save money.

You cannot share your FDP with your friends. I have heard of guys saying they gave their buddy this and that amount of FDP. Which is hogwash it’s not possible you cannot do it. So do not let someone tell you that you can. These guys will often say that if you let them win. They will give you 1,000,000 FDP the next day or before the week is over. A month or two later you once you notice or get the idea that maybe you have been scammed or bamboozled. It will be too late the guy is gone and has probably withdrawn the money and deleted his account. Don’t be a victim to that.

You can very well win big cash with FDP just like you would with cash. If you just so happen to enter a tournament and your lineup that you entered with FDP. Finishes in the top 10 spots or in 1st. You will be extremely happy. Not only because you won $500+ but you did it without having to use any of your balance. Even though you had to use actual cash to accumulate those points. It’s so rewarding when you use them and make that money back on top of accumulating more FDP.

    Very interesting view on Fan Duel and how you can score points without investing money. Very good point of view from you.

    How does one get involved in Fan Duel? Do you have to be an experienced sports better? Do you have to understand sports better than the average guy?
