    Only a week out and this seems like a pretty legit question now…

    We don’t need the start joining any GPPs yet but can you guys please post something like h2h/non-guaranteed contests just so we can see any changes/pricing and start setting things up on our end to start preparing?

  • flip4flop

    They could at the very least open the contests up and let us reserve entries or explore what is available. Which leads me to believe the prize pools will be dissapointing for opening day since they are not out.

  • Yacht67

    Got to think opening day contests won’t be that big now.

    Looks like FD is posted

  • mellofellowsu

    FD contest has late swap. Wowzers.

    Uhhh, DOES NO ONE CARE ABOUT THIS FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT DEVELOPMENT?

    I know it’s baseball where LUs are generally known ahead of time but this is still big. Could be on its way to all sports on FD.

    Well the fact FD is up and going and FINALLY breaking tradition from all sports and offering late swap, I’ll finally play more..I’ve rarely hardly ever played FD MLB (it’s what got me on to DK to begin with some years back)..I simply wouldn’t play the sport where late swap is the most vital, given FD operated off that structure and DK had the swap, being said, I probably will find myself splitting entrees pretty even amongst both FD and DK this year thanks in part to this news. Big, smart, and important move from Fan Duel.

    ((I will point out, anyone noticing transition into a merge in full effect currently?))

    This leaves me with ZERO reason to play MLB on FD anymore………and if it was due to the “merger” they would not have made the PGA product so different from DK

  • KindGuy

    Odds, did you really think MLB wouldn’t be offered? Lol, cmon now.

  • Gfry3

    I think the best/smartest thing they are doing is having both options available! There are people who just hate late swap and some that absolutely love it. Why make it one or the other? This way EVERYONE wins. That was my biggest complaint with dumping it for NBA on DK, why not offer both if there are big groups that enjoy just one or the other.

  • eperson911

    Where can I find the details of this years scoring changes? I miss the negative points for outs.

    you will see why offering both is bad once the GPP prizes start to tank

  • Kjwhalen77

    FD late swap could also just be an opening day gig. Hard to pick a Main Slate with such a variety in start times.

    EDIT: Nevermind… looks like late swap on FD might be an option for all sports, not just MLB

    You’re on the wrong thread. Stop hijacking this thread.

    yea i really thought FD/DK wouldn’t offer MLB this year.

    there needs to be a sarcasm font, seriously.

    instead of asking “Why isn’t MLB up yet on FD/DK yet?” I thought I’d throw some humor in at least. that’s my schtick. Having said that, if I say “Lebron BUST” after the first minute of a game i am 100% kidding just FYI.

    Who needs a pitcher with a W, just roster 2 guys with SB upside.

  • Whacko

    Has anyone really delved into these scoring changes and how it can potentially affect LU construction??

    Or just 1 Billy Hamilton

  • Jaws1002

    I wonder if Draft Kings is last to post a Sunday slate because they are making some changes as well.

    There was talk of them doing a C/DH position instead of just Catcher

  • mwgdfs

    they haven’t even been promoting Baseball on DK yet, seems kinda odd

    Did they change SB scoring? I thought it was previously 6 (or 2 during the good scoring days with negative outs) – twice what a single/walk/hbp is worth and the same as a double.

  • mwgdfs

    BOOM!

    MLB going up on DK now

  • Jaws1002

    No changes to DK, they started with Monday’s slate first. Finally!!
