DNPs, Reboots, and Tied Projections

Last updated: Jan 11, 2024

A projection may be marked as a “Did Not Play” (DNP).

DNPs do not count as a correct pick, but they will earn you a half-point if your group goes to the scorecards to determine a winner.

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.

‍‍Board Error

‍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. 

Reboots

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).You will still be eligible for a Perfect Entry Payout, but you will not be awarded any points for a rebooted projection.

Tied Projections

If a player in your entry perfectly matches their stat projection, this will be considered a Tied Projection.

Ties do not count as a correct pick, but they will earn you a half-point if your group goes to the scorecards to determine a winner.
