    I heard fanduel is going to be doing NFL preseason. If this is true, are backup qbs the most important stats to keep track of?

    For those who played last preseason, what were the tournament sizes like? Are there still some big GPPs or are they relatively small?

    You pulled off that win with Derek Anderson last year! Dude that was awesome! Congratulations on that!

    Both FD and DK skipped Week 1 of Preseason. The first game they offered was Week 2 on 8/15. FanDuel came out of the gates blazing with a $15K Bomb at $25. It overlaid pretty heavy and then they went down to a 7.5K GPP. If you look at my profile under “Biggest Scores” the $25 GPP where I took 2/246 was Week 3 of Preseason. That was about a 7.5K GPP if I remember correctly. I think this year we will see something like a $10K GPP at $25. That was the most popular one.

    Get ready to see winning lineups with 16,000-19,000 salary leftover.

    Last year FD used their already established prices but on DK they just made everyone $3K. On DK it didn’t matter who you selected, you ended up with the same amount spent as anyone else who picked a full team.

    I hope they do week one this year… Unless they think the amount of rake they receive isn’t worth the trouble.

    really, didn’t know that wasn’t in DK at that time. Pretty neat.

    I wrote articles last year and I plan to again along with whatever else is offered on this site. I cashed 100% of my GPPs last year across all 3 weeks Preseason was offered. I also took second in the $25 Bomb on FanDuel when I properly identified Allen Hurns as a good player no one had heard of. The week prior to that Henry Josey was a must play. I have to disagree with anyone who says there isn’t an edge. There was a massive edge for me. I ran into people who were using starters who only played for 10 plays. I’m stoked for Preseason NFL.

    Damn I think you just talked me into playing this preseason.

    This is awsome, I had no idea fd and dk do preseason football as I started daily fantasy around week 2 or 3 of the nfl season last year. I’m pumped for the preseason now

    There will not be any NFL Preseason games for Fanduel this year, not sure about DK though.

    Source?

  • BreakingBacon

    you better give a source because Fanduel would be stupid not to do this… any chance for them to rake in extra money should be taken.

    Hey Jason,

    Thank you for contacting FanDuel customer support!

    Unfortunately, we will not be running preseason NFL contests this year. We regularly survey users about our product, and their feedback suggested that the preseason games were too unpredictable. A lot also found that the unpredictable nature made the contests less appealing.

    As always, if you have any other questions or concerns, please let me know and I’ll be happy to help!

    Best,
    Kevin

    Thank you for playing FanDuel.

    Thanks – that’s very interesting!

  • Mattg45

    That sucks, would have been fun to try but hopefully dk has it

  • JSteele

    Reading this has got me stoked about it. I really hope DK steps up with this.

  • DailyLoser

    Preseason football sounds ridiculously appealing to me…however I honestly think the appeal is limited to hardcore fans like us. I really couldn’t see it filling…makes sense FD wouldn’t run it…I hope DK does

    But they did run them last year, and it was awesome. I can only imagine that a bunch of people e-mailed them pouting about how their players all got zeroes, and they don’t feel like having to address that again for people who put no thought into picking teams.

    This makes sense to me (I didn’t play last year though)…only legitimate reason besides laziness..

    So people e-mailed them and complained that they picked bad players, and thus made it so no preseason DFS…lol

    I was saying this to someone yesterday. I wonder if some new people who weren’t familiar with the site accidentally entered preseason contests instead of Week 1. I played against a bunch of people last year who rostered an entire team of starters. Looking back now I’m wondering if they entered preseason contests by mistake.

    I asked a dk rep in Vegas last month if they planned on doing pre season nfl they said yes.

  • mke272

    IMO just because some users don’t want to play it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t give other people the chance. I could see making the tournaments small or even limiting the stakes, but give people a chance to play. I hope DK and some of the other sites offer those games.

    Can one of the RG site moderators or owners get an explanation for this?

  • robert

    Yeah I dont see why they wouldnt have it just because some people complained. Just make the contests smaller if there isnt the demand. They will probably have it next year though as im sure people will complain if they dont have it this year
