How To Play DraftKings Survivor Pool
This is sort of a brilliant contest from DraftKings.
Each NCAA Tournament game day through the Elite Eight, you will pick one team to advance. If your team wins, you keep going.
Starting with the Elite Eight, you’ll be able to pick one team per round.
Sounds easy enough, right?
Not so fast.
As with most survivor pools, you can only pick each team once. So while it may seem like a no-brainer to take a team like Kentucky or Villanova in the first round, know that you won’t be able to use them later in the tournament.
This will force you to select lower seeds early on and save the favorites toward the end.
If you find yourself in a situation in, say, the Final Four where you run out of teams to pick, well then your run is over in DraftKings’ survivor pool.
