    I am sure many got screwed last night with Scherzer’s late scratch. I didn’t see the news until 7:15 which still gave me 2 hours to late swap only to find out DK gave us 0 other late pitcher options besides Scherzer. I still managed to min cash thanks to Manchado but I hope DK learned its lesson that the tiers should either include a min 2 options from the late games or 0 since it sucks getting news 2 hours in advance with no options to do anything about it.

    I emailed them and they will look into how to fix this. One issue is Max was a tier 1 guy and the only late tier 1 player after the 8:15 games.

    You can’t really do that, Tiers are skilled based, should just have to use the replacement pitcher

    That is my issue that we got the news 2 hours in advance and there was no replacement offered even though the news came out well in advance. They should always have at least 2 late game options per tier or none at all to avoid this issue from happening again.

    You can just think of this situation as the same as NBA’s 7 PM lock. It just must more infrequent a starting pitcher gets scratched than an NBA player.

    I didn’t play but do you know who else was the same tier as Max? Was Kluber the same tier that night? You could have swapped to Kluber because his scratch was before Kluber’s game locked.

    The news came out at 7:06 or something like that and Kluber was the only option at 7:10 so there was a 3 to 4 minute window where some users could make the switch to him. However for me I was driving at the time and didn’t get a chance to look at my options until 7:15 when it was too late and I realized there was none.

    I don’t play NBA DFS but having no late swap for that sport makes no sense since there seems to be late scratches frequently for that sport which would drive me nuts.

    I was paying attention, and made the switch to Kluber as my starting pitcher.
    It worked out.

    Many of us pay attention too.

    When the game doesn’t start for two hours, that is obsession, that is not just paying attention.
