  • DK removing late swap for NBA

    Hey Guys, I wanted to share a little more on our reasoning for removing late-swap for NBA... I think late-swap was initially viewed by many new and casual customers as a necessary safe guard against a last-minute “scratch,” which has made late-swap a... Read More

  • I hate Nascar but

    Slah, "fastest laps" and "laps led" are not uncommon categories from traditional fantasy Nascar from everything I've seen. The effect of different tracks was viewed as a positive element of the game as we try create as much opportunity for strategy/edge in... Read More

  • I hate Nascar but

    Thanks for the feedback guys. In response to some recent posts... I agree that finishing position is what the drivers are most concerned with. However, the scoring system is meant to reward the driver's performance within the scoring period (not necessa... Read More

  • I hate Nascar but

    Hey Guys, Our recent partnership with NASCAR allows us access to their live stats feed, and therefore all stats will update in real-time during the race. The scoring system is similar to that of season-long fantasy Nascar and provides plenty of oppo... Read More

  • Missing Notre Dame players from Thursday slate on DK

    Gsulaw16, I agree with you that we should ideally have the extreme/rare scenarios covered in our policies and we will aim to do so going forward. The incident you are referring to involved players being mistakenly added to the player pool due to a tech... Read More

  • Missing Notre Dame players from Thursday slate on DK

    Thanks for the constructive feedback Stewburtx. You make a good point. The decision to omit irrelevant players was made with those 20+ game sets in mind. We later started splitting into smaller sets as a result of user feedback. Another reason we c... Read More

  • Missing Notre Dame players from Thursday slate on DK

    Hey Guys, We hear you all loud and clear on the topic of omitting players from the player pool. It will be revisited next season. To add some clarity… In both College Basketball and College Football, we decided to omit players that never played or ... Read More

  • Missing Notre Dame players from Thursday slate on DK

    Hey Guys, We have mistakenly left off Demetrius Jackson and a few other minimum salary guys on Notre Dame. This was due to a technical issue with a change we made to our CBB salary process for post-season. Unfortunately we have a strict policy for CBB t... Read More

  • Traded Players on DK for 2/20

    Hey Guys, If a traded player's old and new team are both in the contest scoring period then their team will be adjusted (in the Draft Room and for locking purposes) and their points will count. If a player is traded to a team outside of the scoring ... Read More

  • DFS MMA here to stay?

    Hey leafs, currently stats from the two early prelim fights are not very accurate and are often very delayed. This would result in misleading standings/scores throughout the majority of the event. We are working with our stats provider to get to a place ... Read More

  • Can someone from DK address this issue

    Hey Guys, The percentage-owned is calculated every 5 minutes and therefore it can be slightly off within the first 5 minutes of a player locking. This is something we plan to optimize to avoid this type of confusion in the future. I assure you it is s... Read More

  • CBB 12/1

    Hey Guys, Currently, only games invovling an AP Top 25 team (for the most part) have top level coverage from our stats provider, so none of the CBB games tonight have top level coverage. This means that stats like Rebounds and Assists would not be updat... Read More
