      2019 DraftKings FFWC Finalist

    Today DraftKings took a huge step forward in clarifying what type of play is allowed/not allowed.

    Check out the Community Guidelines page here, complete with a clear design and examples.

    I had a call with DK on this just a couple of hours ago. They mentioned this is phase one of this page and they are open to adding to it as new situations arise. The thing that really stood out to me here is Lineup Selling. I did not see that one coming. With lineup selling being such a public endeavor it will also be one of the easiest ones to enforce. I think we’ll see that market dry up quickly, especially if Fanduel follows suit. I asked if they could give more clarity and communication on specific punishments – they feel that would violate their privacy policy, so we probably won’t be seeing such announcements unless they change their policy. This forum will remain a place to bring potential issues to light, but there is also a direct department to report suspected abuse to now:

    Let’s have a constructive conversation about these here. What do you think? Is there anything that should be added or clarified?

    Kudos to DraftKings for making this effort.

    Still seeing same head to head scoops occurring in rapid fire . Emailed their new snazzy email address – canned response , no action taken.

    How do you get scooped on Draftkings? You can limit the number of H2H’s the same person can take from you to 1 at each buyin level.

    On another note, not having the Community Guidelines up is a problem, especially at the start of NFL season with what should be a lot of new players that should understand the rules immediately. My guess is that Draftkings took it down and is already making changes to those guidelines.

    If they really intended on enforcing this, the site would be left with not a single pro! lol
    Who the heck do you all think started this type of play and refined it in the first place? Yes, it was the very pro’s you follow and who pretend to act like this is a good thing but know they will NEVER enforce it. lol.
    This is literally a rule that will apply to the many and NOT the few who actually take part in this type of behavior because they spend far to much on the sites. Just another smoke screen at best. If the sites have proven anything to the users it is that they cannot be trusted to police themselves.

    Cal, thanks for this thread. Do you have any comment on the current status of the guidelines or lack there of. Can you call DK as u did b4 for some clarification? I’m not trying to be a smart as I’m just so confused.
