A projection may be marked as a “Did Not Play” (DNP).
Entries with DNPs are still eligible to win, but each DNP will revert the entry down by one level, lowering the potential max payout.
A DNP can occur for any of the following reasons:
Player did not play:
If a player in your entry does not participate in a single second/snap for any reason, they are marked as a DNP.
Game was canceled or postponed to a new day:
Depending on the sport, picks may be marked a DNP when a game is canceled or postponed to a new day. Please check the scoring chart for the league in question for more information.
PrizePicks reserves the right to DNP any pick as a result of a board error. Projections on the board that are clear errors will result in a DNP. For example, if an NFL Quarterback has a TD projection set to 45 TDs for a single game, the player will be marked as a DNP.
Additionally, if a player projection is still on the board after the official start time of the game, whether due to a system or manual error by PrizePicks, that pick will be marked as a DNP.
Projections that include a specific start time, such as 2nd Half or 4th Quarter, will be classified as board errors if they remain on the board past their specified start time.
League Specific Rules:
Different PrizePicks markets have specific rules regarding what qualifies as a DNP. For example, certain sports, like soccer, require players to start the game in order to be a valid pick. Please consult league-specific scoring charts for more information.
Note: In addition to the reasons above, PrizePicks reserves the right to DNP, change, or remove any projection at its sole discretion.
If a projection in your entry meets the requirements for our Reboot Policy, your entry will revert down by one tier (e.g. from a 4-pick to a 3-pick).
Entries with rebooted projections are still eligible to win, but each reboot will revert the entry down by one level, lowering the potential max payout.
If a player in your entry perfectly matches their stat projection, this will be considered a Tied Projection.
Entries with tied projections are still eligible to win, but each tie will revert the entry down by one level, lowering the potential max payout.
