    We’re very excited to announce the launch of DFS Alerts. This product will be vital for daily NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL players, as we’ll be updating you on all pertinent DFS news in a variety of ways.

    The most exciting thing about this product is that we’ll have the ability to send you push alerts for breaking news for all major sports through our Lineups App; for those that play NBA DFS on a nightly basis, you know how important it is to receive player news as quickly as possible, especially because of how time-sensitive it often is.

    I’ll be heading up this product, and will be bringing on a team of news writers in the very near future. We’ll be scouring Twitter (in addition to other news mediums) throughout the day to ensure we’re bringing you the news as quickly as possible. The app is only available for iOS at the current point in time, but we’ll have an Android version available very soon.

    Click HERE to check out the on-site news alerts page.

    Click HERE to download the app.

    Here are a few of the major features of the app:

    - Receive push notifications when high priority news breaks (think late scratches, injury updates, game cancellations). – View our entire DFS Alerts feed in the app – view alerts + applicable DFS analysis of all priority levels, sortable by sport. – Starting Lineups + player salaries displayed for all of tonight’s games. – Be alerted when daily lineups are released and access them with a single click.

    We’ll also be allowing users to personalize which alert priorities/types they receive as well, although that particular feature is not available yet. Only “urgent” alerts will be pushed for the time being.

    This is your one-stop lineups and news app for your daily fantasy sports games. Download now and never miss a breaking lineups alert again!

    I don’t know, it took ten minutes after I got the email, before the app pushed the notice.

    Hey guys,

    There was an issue with the first alert we sent tonight (for the Jrue Holiday scratch), which caused a delay in the push notification. We’re still working out some kinks on day one, but we’ll be all set for tomorrow’s slate. Luckily the push alert was able to make it through before late-swap lineups locked, and we were able to get a newsletter alert out previous to that.

    A late-scratch on a three game slate to open the season.. THE NBA IS BACK!

    Does the on site alert page update automatically?

  • SBK

    • 2018 CVR Basketball

    Are you asking if the page would update without you having to refresh after each update? No, we don’t have that capability in place yet, but hope to soon.

  • rebkell

    Is there anyway you could make a unique sound with the push app? Some apps have a unique sound when they send you a notice? Like CBS Sports, the craziest one is the Cleveland Cavaliers app, I think it says ‘Come on Down’ or something like that, but believe me I notice it every time.

  • jimbodan

    Looks really cool! Hopefully it won’t be too long until the Android version is available.

  • Rokko

    Will you be including CBB in this?

  • ColonialRampage

    Does this mean the lineup alerts by e-mail will be discontinued?

  • topspinner

    would be nice to have cfb and CBB. Also, do you need to do anything to get the push alerts besides being signed in? If you don’t want let’s say for nba, how can you turn them off?

    I have a macbook. Any possibility to make the app compatible with a macbook

    Are we supposed to be received Push Notifications when the NBA Lineups are released? I have been getting them and still do for MLB, but I am not for the NBA and and do not see a setting anywhere to turn it on.

    Great App, BTW.

    We don’t do full lineups currently, since NBA Lineups aren’t as dynamic (not factoring in injury) as MLB, and we project lineups throughout the day. – For now, we’re only sending top tier “Urgent” level pushes at the moment, which reflect when a projected lineup has changed, or might change. – So you’re safe to use our RG NBA Lineups page for lineups at anytime in the day, then if an alert hits, you know a lineup changed somehow.

    That said, in the (near-ish) future, we’ll have several tiers of importance levels, and at that time you can opt-in to get NBA Lineups as they are released, as well as some news blurbs that are sent which are less than ‘urgent’.

    Thanks Cameron. After reading that, it makes sense. Funny, I just got notifications that the the MIL and MIA lineups have posted….

    Crazy timing for me to respond to your post! – Ironically, we just pushed an update that now has NBA Lineups sending Push Alerts each time one is confirmed. We already identified the issue causing it, and resolved that though. Thanks!

  • einars

    no andriod?

  • markl1420

    Is there a way in the app to set which push alerts to receive? I play NHL but I do not play NBA, so I don’t care about the basketball alerts. Speaking of hockey there hasn’t been an alert since Oct 12th. Will hockey become more prominent in this app?

    Thanks!

  • jl2222

    Was wondering the same thing as I only play NFL. Also what is the ETA for an Android update? Luckily I have both although my iphone is my work phone. Would be nice to have these updates on both platforms.

  • ward6923

    Anybody know if the droid version is out and how is it working?

  • fcbjakub

    android version at the moment is not up to par. i get notifications about players being out but no cant view any lineups besides the royals meta games. btw I would like to thank all rg staff for putting this together! great job, cant wait for the android app to work its going to be one of the best tools.
