    I may be in the minority but I actually like not having late swap. Nobody gets any competitive advantage because it effects everyone the same. When they used to have late swap, I would have to sit by my computer all night looking for updates. I would rather set my lineup and walk away. It makes like so much easier.

    They need contests just for the guys who do not like late swap. I want late swap. Sucks losing 40 and $50 because someone sits. Heck I cant win shit with swap or without it, but I’ve had plenty of lineups that looked very interesting til a player sits. Seems one sided to me. Lets favor the guys who have lifes! Jk.. There’s one think you don’t mess with is a man’s family and his money! No late swap is robbery!!

    It doesn’t affect everyone the same if you have a complete lu with no scraches .

    So to recap…Every sport on DK has late swap but NBA where it matters most and now even FD has late swap for baseball? Honestly one of the dumbest decisions ever. And yes DK, I have quit playing NBA on your site after the removal of late swap because of how stupid it was, but would love to come back if it came back.

    In 2017 why are you sitting at your computer all night? Smartphone+twitter alerts has been clutch for me. I even have a smart watch now so I don’t have have to carry my phone on me. I just get a buzz when RG/Labs whoever sends a tweet out. I would like to have late swap but I have done fine without it.

    Moving this topic off main as there’s a new topic concerning the late swap for MLB. No need to have multiple topics on late swap and this one is now rather old.

    As a relative fish perspective when it comes to NBA, I got mixed (yet strong) feelings.

    I don’t play a lot of NBA at all, but of the 7-8 times I played heavy for me ($50-$150 in a night), 3 (4 including Durant) times they’ve been screwed by tip off, twice ( not including KD) 100% of my lineups.

    Sitting at work with $100 in lineups, finding out Hood is out, Rose is awol, etc… makes me not want anything to do with this again. It feels cheap and dirty. And somebody somewhere knows this info which isn’t available which feels I’m being cheated too.

    On the other hand, I have a wife, child and work. I wouldn’t play if it wasn’t for lock-in, because the base line for me wouldn’t be fair.

    DK has given itself a huge unfair advantage over its users! Why aren’t more people angry about this? Last night TJ Warren was announced as being out 15 minutes after lineups locked and 2 hours before PHO game started!

    THAT is ridiculous!

    They’re reasoning behind why they do this is even more ridiculous:

    “We understand that this is a very polarizing issue for our users and that for every user who enjoys NBA more with late swap, there is another who is disappointed that we don’t offer it in NBA. Removing late swap allows more NBA fans to participate in DFS NBA regardless of their schedules or commitments during the long period of time during which games are starting. While we have no current plans to resume offering it in NBA at this time we will certainly revisit the decision in the off season or if the NBA institutes a uniform policy for announcing starters and injuries prior to the beginning of games.”

    Talking about user’s schedules? Really? Well that explanation doesn’t fly in cases like last night because it doesn’t matter when you’re working or what kind of commitments you have (LOL) or if you’re able to watch NBA alerts up until the very last second because no one could have seen that scratch coming! The only people who have an advantage in situations like this are users with crystal balls and DraftKings and the only people at a disadvantage in situations like this are ALL DK USERS!

    If it’s all about not giving an edge to DK users who can watch NBA alerts all day (like myself), their reasoning backfires because as I stated, it was announced 15 minutes after lineups locked.

    50.5% of users had Warren in their lineups in the 2 game late slate last night so that means 50.5% of users got ripped off and all those entry fees from all those lineups with big fat zeroes in them went into DK pockets!!

    Come on people! This is blatantly unfair and basically cheating!

    If a player is announced as being out before games lock and you put him in your lineup, that’s on you but if it’s announced way after lineups lock, that is on DK and they need to give people their entry fees back!

    They’re not keeping it fair for either type of player they mention in their explanation! They’re keeping it nice for themselves to get richer!

    They only did this after getting mixed up with FanDuel where I stopped playing because of the no swap BS. DK undoubtedly got a look at FD’s profits from entry fees they kept from poor players who get screwed and wanted in on it fast!

    They’re already under scrutiny in many states. It’s shocking that during this time they pulled the no swap stunt! More of you need to get ticked off and feel ripped off because this is SO WRONG it’s almost like stealing.

    They way I see it is someone knows Butler wasn’t playing last night before tip-off and then 20 minutes after it comes out on Rotoworld. With Twitter, etc these site have their sources at their fingertips. Pisses you off when it’s 40 minutes to tip-off and you can’t do shat. No one can tell me someone rather done fraudulently or not didn’t have the knowledge Butler was out. Either way this is a prime example of why late swap needs to be brought back.

    You did it to cater to the pros!

    Can anyone confirm if this has finally be fixed/changed back to its original state or not? I thought I heard that it HAS, but I don’t have any concrete evidence like an email, or anything in the game lobby that says you can or can’t late swap. Thanks

    when making lineups you will see an alert on top saying “games lock at the time of the start” which means late swap will be on dk this year.
