Why Winnings Don't Reflect Good Fantasy Players

Quick post today, mostly because I've had this on my mind.

Let's take an example of two Fan Duel players.

Player A plays ten $100 contests, winning five of them.

Player B plays 13 $10 contests, winning eight.

On the leader board, you will see:

Player A $900
Player B $144

However, looking at the true profit of each player:

Player A, $1000 in entries, $900 in winnings.
Player B, $130 in entries, $144 in winnings.

A true profit/loss leader board would read:

Player B $14
Player A -$100

Now I realize some people have money to burn and they don't necessarily care about profits. If you know any of these people please let me know where they play.
