    so I have a chance to make some decent coin in a FD contest… but one opponent in the top 5 has a Defense, and where it normally would say who it is and what they scored.. it says…. “Player revealed on game day”…… this seems pretty shady – it is Sunday, it is game day… do some users get a special status, where they can hide who they played? Doesn’t make sense to me….

    Player revealed on game day

  • gibby84

    They either have magical fanduel powers, or their defense is playing on Monday, also a game day. Which seems more logical?

    Players are not revealed until game time.

    Edit – Game day

  • CMags44

    Do some teams get special treatment, where they can change their lineup during the day with FD? I don’t understand “Player revealed on game day” for user monjumm? Every other team has their full lineup on display. But this way, Monjumm can not show their defense after all but 2 of the games for the weekend are played? Can they change their defense (maybe be the Rams, all of a sudden)? It is just weird, and makes me distrustful. Is this like on-line poker? I thought this was on the “up and up”? Anybody see this before?

  • scsa1998

    Its miami as i highly doubt someone took the Jets defense, Week 8 FD started hiding players that play on days after the contest starts. So people couldn’t copy other peoples team on thursday-mon slates.

  • CMags44

    OK, really? even though players are locked, you don’t see them until the game starts for that specific player? I see no point in that, since you can’t change anything. And this is different than any other fantasy contest I’ve seen. Sorry if I’m being dumb here, but this seems so unusual?

  • SteinerLJ15

    People were copying lineups. They would look at a top players thursday lineup and copy it for Sunday. This was the way fanduel put a stop to it.

  • CMags44

    but this is a Sunday contest where all lineups locked at 12:00 CST. What would be the reason not to show a team’s lineup at 6;30 at night, where nobody can enter this same contest anyway? Doesn’t make any sense to me?

  • duder500

    It is across all contests. No one has the ability to change players after the contest has started.

    While there is no logic at not showing it Sunday night there is logic in not showing it on Thursday. Since it should not make a difference to you one way or another it makes sense to not reveal anything till game time.

    Edit – Game day

    Makes sense if you don’t think about it.

  • gibby84

    Honestly, if you had the mental capacity to set a valid line up, you should be able to wrap your head around this conundrum and make sense of it, CMags.

    I feel like no one here has said it clearly enough (although I’m surprised someone is on this forum and not aware of this rule).

    Players are revealed the DAY they are playing. Above, it was said that players are not revealed until game time, which is incorrect. At 1pm EST when rosters lock you can still see the players from sunday afternoon and night games…but no one that is playing on Monday.

    This is due to people upset that their lineups were revealed to opponents on Thursday-Mon games. Opponent could see what players top DFS’rs were playing and copy their picks for the Sun-Mon slates.

    The reason other teams have all of their players shown is because they didn’t choose anyone from Monday’s MIA-NYJ game. That guy clearly has Miami defense.

    I get the distinct feeling that you could make an interactive powerpoint presentation for the OP and it still wouldn’t make sense. Then again, I’m inferring that from the content of the topic.
