    Just got an e-mail about this. Also giving players multiple position eligibility.

    Get that first report “Pop MAY rest players” May? so yes or no?

    If that’s the report it seems pretty simple to me. Don’t play them. See how easy that is?

    Or if you determine that the marginal benefit of getting Kawhi at an almost nonexistent ownership is worth the risk of a negative outcome (a 0), roster him.

    GS and LAC are going to decimate DFS lineups late in the year. And the notion that we can study patterns to determine who gets a healthy rest? are you serious? ha I would like to see that in a spreadsheet. Get that first report “Pop MAY rest players” May? so yes or no? And Players? do we mean Parker or Kawhi or Pau or all 3.

    And yes we are all in the same boat, that boat is just sinking and we are supposed to be happy to go down with it.

    no, we are not all in the same boat. Some of us are in a yacht & some of us are in a canoe. If I max enter a tournament, & lets say Boogie or Curry are 50/50 to play on a given night, I can take a chance and sprinkle them in some lineups knowing they are going to be much lower owned & have a definite advantage over somebody that can only afford to play an entry or two & can’t take the risk to play a guy from the late slate that is 50/50 to play. No late swap is a big advantage to multi-entry players.

    One more time, the overwhelming majority here are talking about healthy late scratches. No one is complaining about getting a zero on a late scratch from a player that was iffy to begin with. And like has been mentioned 100 times in this thread, the Spurs and Cavs (especially the Spurs) are notorious for late healthy scratches.

    And on the very same post I clearly stated that unanticipated scratches are akin to unanticipated injuries. Nobody has a clear advantage in that situation. It’s evened out the playing field if anything.

    I don’t agree. If you’re only playing an entry or two in large multi entry GPP most would say you’re already at a disadvantage. Regardless of late swap. I love playing single entry or 3 entry max GPP’s for this very reason if I’m just throwing out a few lineups on any given night.

    Sweating lineups is fun as soon as you get burned and take a zero nights over , and to claim because we disagree with the decision we haven’t “though about it” we have and it still sucks , what source are you using to claim majority!!

  • AntFer

    It’s only 1 pre season night but i must admit i had my most profitable night in nba for preseason. The late slate’s %‘s were down and since i make muliple lineups i was able to take more risks. I have a feeling this might actually backfire for the people complaining. The casual player wants to make a lineup and not have to stay on the computer all night waiting for info. A player w/ a high bankroll is able to make lineups with and without the late hammers. So if a player gets scratched that casual player is getting a 0 while eventhough ill get that 0 on a few lineups i also have plenty of lineups without that 0 cause i made extra lineups.. Once the casual player realizes they r still losing and it isnt cause of late swap im sure they will find another issue to complain about..

    But I don’t understand taking away the option for those that do see it. Don’t say “a small amt of people didn’t like it this way, so we’re changing it and gonna tick off the majority”.
    I’ve had times where I know I’m not going to be able to check so I don’t play certain nights. I’ve also had times where I check just in time and swap late. Also been burned by not checking. I can deal with it being on me, I’m far less forgiving when I see someone is out and can’t do anything about it.

    This change does not make me “rest easier” or anything of the sort. I still check my lineups and when something like last night happens and I had a decent lineup that missed cashing I don’t want to play.

    This is my exact sentiment. If its on me then I can live with it. How can I get in a $1000 contest Knowing there is a chance that I will get a DNP Rest. I can’t and I won’t now. For MellofellowSU- I’m glad you agree and that you say many play on FD well the reason I didn’t play on FD is for the swap. If DK didn’t have the swap to start maybe I never sign up on DK. For everyone and anyone that scours twitter for the info its a waste of time. Just download RG app it takes 3 minutes. Yes I have kids, Yes I work, Yes I play a big volume.

  • sjm26b

    I love this decision by DK. It allows casual players to play on the site now without fear if they cannot be on their computer/cell phone throughout the whole slate.

  • timski83

    In DK Basketball; player by game ownership will be exactly like FD. Most all of the serious players will just play the games that start at 7 or 7:30. They might sprinkle in some later guys but I know from my FD experience, the early games will have much higher ownership than before the swap lock.

  • rlangell

    Honestly I see all these posts about “my wife/girlfriend getting angry that i monitor my computer all night”…There’s one solution to that…SEE YA! Yeah I’m a single guy during the NBA DFS season haha

    Here’s one point for this change helping the multi entry guys and not the casual player. I suspect this will become the rule and not the exception

    Its all about the $ for DK. This move will bring in more revenue so it had to be done. Plain and simple

    Still waiting for an explanation on how it could possibly make them more money. If a ton of regular DFSers are pissed and plan to boycott DK, how is that going to make them more money?

  • billholler

    I threw in a few LU tonight for the first time this preseason. I am fully expecting someone to take the day off unexpectedly.

    Because the people upset are a small (but vocal) minority. Im assuming DK has a lot of proprietary data to back up their decision.

    They have provided no explanation for any of the ridiculous decisions they have made in the last few months and this one is the most ridulousest of them all.

    I think the real ‘tell’ on this is going to be once the season starts and we see if there is a visible and obvious increase in the size and number of events on later, smaller slates. If they have increased the amount of events and prize pools on the later secondary slates than it should be clear they are making the change to fill more of those.

  • tyrique730

    I think anthony davis and cousins will have a few beginning of the season. Near all star we have to deal with spurs lakers miami warriors being having healthy scratches and cavs of cours with lebron taking random time off. The only superstar im not worried about a healthy late scratch is paul george.

    Better get all the NBA action you can early before it truly affects your bottom line.

  • spades4085

    I could see the executives of DK sitting in a weekly board meeting talking about this..“30-40 people are going to boycott us for no late swap…hahaha…get those promos out there and make it back up”

  • zline34

    I bet thousands each year on DK for NBA. The only reason I don’t play FD is because they don’t have late swap. There’s no way I’m going to risk entering the higher stakes contests without late swap being available. If you can’t check you phone 5 minutes before tip off you shouldn’t be playing DFS anyway. What a joke. Does Rosters have late swap?

    There’s no way I’m entering the $300, $150, or $27 contests now. I’m not risking that without late swap. that’s idiotic.

    They are making more because they think they have a superior product to fd. They expect people to switch from fd to dk while retaining their original customer base.

    There’s a lot of great players that play on FD at those limits and have been doing it for years. You think they’re idiots?
