    Hate the late swap because I’m gonna have to keep notifications on.

    Also do the MLB rankings restart on RG? Just joined last year after the MLB season.

    I’m not much for late swap in Basketball, but it seems to make more sense for MLB. In MLB we at least know who the lineups are going to be well ahead of time. What this seems to help with in my opinion is weather concerns.

    I’m not happy at all. As much time as I put into DFS, and the amazing support my wife and son give me doing my research, lineup lock has always been the time I could walk away from the computer and spend time with them.

    Nope, now I’ll have to pay attention and in order to have +ev, I’ll have to make sure I make adjustments to my lineups each night depending on different situations.

    They can’t please everyone though, I’m sure many are happy.

    Couldn’t have said it better. My wife lets me play DFS as I please before the lock. Once lock comes in phone down and family time with our son.

    As a father of 3 young kids, I agree. HOWEVER, MLB is fairly predictable. It’s not nearly the bear that NBA is and normally even the late game lineups are posted before 7pm lock so you don’t have to worry too much about it.

    the point is you still have to keep up to be +EV with other being able to make changes to help out struggling lineups (like going contrarian late to catch up)

    Couldnt agree more. MLB was great not having swap, I could spend more time with my wife and daughter and still know I was not losing value by not changing things as the game progresed. I have no reason real incentive to play on FD now. Most likley will stick with DK for a large portion of it no way I have the time for 2 full time sites.

  • Jaws1002

    I don’t play Fan Duel, have only played DK for late swap reasons, but I do not know how anyone cannot like this with either a late scratch, which thankfully is rare compared to basketball, but more importantly for a rainout you were not expecting, which does happen, even with watching the weather reports. So to me it’s a win so people can make changes.

    Yup

  • Robby12

    looks like there will be different slates. Some with late-swap, and some without.

    Looking at more information coming out, it looks like some slates will offer it, some will not.

    It may actually not be all that bad. If it still locks at 7pm, I’m cool with it.

    so……two sets of crappy GPP……great. Its hard enough to win a GPP as it is , now if you do its smaller because they divided their volume….no thanks

    The late MLB player scratches are very rare 99% of the time we know prior. If anything a player gets hurt mid game. Onto the rainout concern most people stay away from games with a 60%+ chance of a rainout anyway. Even the late LA games are posted before lock.

  • flip4flop

    Late swap in MLB primarliy benefits pros and those who have all night to sit at computer and adjust lineups as games progress. If you are veiwing this as a weather/player scratch advantage then you are doing it wrong.

    Hopefully this change wont be for the 7pm slates.

    No, I don’t think there will be two sets of GPPs. I believe that full day and early day slates, including Sunday slates, will have late swap while evening slates will not.

    Has FD released an official statement yet?

    I still think weather related concerns is the biggest deal here. Assuming good weather I can’t see me making late swaps to my lineups based on where my lineup currently stands. I can however see after a four hour rain delay somewhere like Chicago, and they decide to start the game late, swapping out some west coast players for better players in an earlier game that is suddenly on again.

    if this change is for all day slates only , I could live with it

    Wouldn’t you want the best +EV players to begin with?

  • tvsfrink

    I like how these late swap threads always end up with some people saying “I can’t imagine why anyone would not want late swap” while others are saying “I love no late swap.”

  • TnRiddles

    of course you do , but Im talking more about being able to make adjustments to maybe make up for some -EV decisions in the earlier games instead of just having to play with what you brought at lock
