    Three out of the last four nights Fantasy Draft has not had any salaries listed for their MLB contests by at least 9am the morning thereof. All you get when you click on a contest is a reservation page. Apparently they haven’t heard that there are people in this world who have actual jobs to go to in the morning. Perhaps they have not heard that a majority of DFS players actually do their research the night before, then edit their lineups later in the afternoon or when they get done at work/school/daily tasks, etc. DraftKings had salaries listed for their contests the night before; FanDuel had salaries listed the night before… But here a mere nine hours away from lock and FantasyDraft still has not even listed their salaries! How difficult is it to list the salaries the night before!? Again, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Are they trying to discourage players from playing on their site? Has it occurred to them that this may be the reason why their contests never fill? If salaries are not yet posted at a reasonable time that allow people to both play DFS and live their normal lives then there’s really no incentive to play DFS — at least not on their site. Do they expect people to quit their jobs so they can stay home and wait all day for the player salaries to be posted? It’s both ridiculous and unprofessional.

    yea I too am disconcerted by this..makes me nervous ..maybe the new “no rake” platform has altered the protocol

  • Aftereffect

    Agree. What time did they finally post the salaries today? Like 10:30? Even some of the pundits on the other DFS sites took them to task today over their tardiness.

    Get it together, guys!

    They’ve done this a few times in the past, even with NBA. I wonder if its a permanent now.

    We are sorry for this delay in posting on the days mentioned – that is definitely not the norm and won’t be – and have created a private freeroll for your inconvenience.

    Thanks a lot for running the free roll last night and I was happy to be one of the lucky 6 to pick up a $25 ticket. Still was a pretty good deal with top 66 getting some form of ticket and only 32 entries.

    Yeah it was a pretty sweet deal to get me back into MLB after I decided to retire from that sport to only play PGA for the summer. 32 entrants with 1-6 getting a $25 MLB ticket for tonight, 7-16 got a $5 ticket and 17-66 got a $1 ticket.

    Now hopefully I can have another solid night and can take advantage of the $25 ticket in the main slate tonight so I can get my bankroll back up there in time for the rake free announcement since the PGA hasn’t been going very well the last month.

  • dylandreadful

    congrats and good luck!

    damn, I missed the freeroll. my 128.25 would’ve gotten me a coveted HR ticket
