Merging unfilled Head to Head (H2H) contests (US)

DraftKings Fantasy Sports offers players the ability to compete Head-to-Head (H2H) against another player via Head-to-Head contests.


The merging of an unfilled Head to Head contest occurs at the time the contest locks. Typically, when the merge is complete a player will immediately see their matched opponent.

Defining Head-to-Head (H2H) merged contests:

Public Head to Head contests:

  • Should there be a contest that has not been filled at the time of contest lock, the unfilled entry will be matched up with an unfilled entry in the same game set and price point; should that additional unfilled entry exist.

Private Head-to-Head (H2H) contests:

  • Players need to have the Find Opponent option turned on to have their contest merge if it doesn’t initially fill.
