    Please, please, puhleeeeeeze consider re-instituting the Early-only game slate for Sundays.

    We do not need giant tournaments, but a chance to 1) avoid Coors Field and 2) not have to hang around with fingers crossed hoping to get the 4:00pm ET lineups before everything locks would be nice.

    During the last couple seasons, FD has come around to offer these contests, however, it has been like pulling teeth to get anyone to listen yet again.

    Many thanks!

    I was happy as hell to see that DK is offering a proper Early-Only slate. Sundays are hard enough, no need to make MLB a pain like the NBA.

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    DK offered them all last year, FanDuel never had them.
    I ignore FD on Sunday’s during the baseball season.

    Not playing DK tommorrow cause of that. You have late swap, no reason to pull a move like that. The afternoon GPPS suck. So disappointing.

    I agree that the early sunday slate on DK does not need to be the Main Sunday slate. But i love that they offer them.

    I’ve never understood why FD doesn’t offer an early slate on Sundays. No way am I willing to play an all day slate given the risk of not having the late game lineups come in before lock.

    Was looking this morning for that as I’ll be outside of New York but man what a pain to have only all day and late. To be honest I’d prefer an early and all day slate over this. The 1:00 to 11:30 is just such a kind slate and Not enjoyable

    Fanduel will offer 2 game slates every day of the week to cash in on rake (even seen contest that have just 2 games, one 12:35 and one at 6 PM because they wanted the rake so bad). However on sunday’s we have to deal with an all day slate (on the day of the week that is most unpredictable for expected lineups). Also on a day like today when theirs 6 games before 1:35, and 10 before 3:35.

    I’m not usally one to bark at what sites do, after all we will all still play no matter what and I find it overall pointless to put yourself out their and complain because more times then not it goes unheard. But at some point, I hope they realize they are LOSING rake by not doing the before mentioned.

    Maybe it worked… Theres now Express and Late Slates on FD

    I wish the squeeze in the express was larger

  • MikeMineo

    FD should have DK’s slates today and DK should have FD’s

    One site has late swap but doesn’t want us to use it apparently, and the other doesn’t have late swap but wants us to cross our fingers for anything starting past 4.

    I guess it comes down to one thing: rake

    Agreed, I prefer an all day slate on DK – no reason not to on a late swap site.

    Maybe they didn’t understand us very well. Let’s try and explain this a little easier. On Sundays FD please set up an all day slate like always, an early slate that includes all games that start between 1:05 and 3:05, a late slate for all games that start after 4:05, you do this every Sunday for NFL games, it can’t be that hard to do this for MLB. Then you can even entertain us with the following slates, an early afternoon slate for the games that start between 1:05 and 1:35, an express slate for the games that start between 2:05 and 3:05, a late afternoon slate for just the games that start at 4:05 and 4:35.

    FD is such a disaster on Sundays for MLB.

    Their main GPP (28,901 entries for $3) is going to fill by 11am ET and there are no early slate GPP options. Geez. Really trying hard to turn people off on their day off when they have time to do this lol.

    You’d figure that with a lot of people off work, FD would want to ramp it up a bit on Sunday’s and not have their contests fill over two hours early.

    Yeah, except the DK main slate is horrendous. Thank gawd FD at least has all the games for their big contests. I do agree they should combine the east coast and central games for the early only slate though.

  • ksnoke

    The real answer here is both FD and DK are run by idiots, which they have proved over and over again.

    Ya it really is ass backwards. The site with no late swap has the full slate and site with it is running early only as main…. a common sense detective is sorely needed

  • JustDFSin

    Why does fd offer 5 to 7 of the same 50/50 games that never fill? Make them multi entry and they least have a chance to fill

    It’s probably the opposite.it’s a marketing scheme.they know people are gonna play anyway so why not take advantage of that?when was the last time you saw any major overlay?
