I wanted to announce that we’ve changed our NBA format for 2019. After months of user feedback and testing, we’ve decided to revert to our traditional NBA format. That means that we’ll no longer drop your lowest score, so all 9 of your players’ scores will count. And we won’t be offering late swap on Full Roster NBA contests.
We know that late scratches are a problem in fantasy basketball, and late swap is one way to help mitigate that problem. But we’re committed to keeping FanDuel fair and fun for all players, and NBA late swap doesn’t do that. This format makes it easier for fans to set their lineups then sit back and enjoy the games — without worrying about constantly checking player news or tweaking their lineups late into the night. We want to make basketball more fun, not more work.
We’ll continue to explore how we can make our NBA product better for everyone.
Thanks for playing! And to those of you I owe email responses to, they’re coming this week – Sportsbook has been taking up a lot of my time!
