      2014 FAFC Finalist

    • 2015 FAWBC Finalist

    It’s been a hectic week for me, as both DraftKings and FanDuel changed their lobby designs and FanDuel added a new sport – WNBA. Three new releases have been made to the Chrome browser extensions this week. Here are all of the details:

    WNBA

    The first WNBA DFS contests are on Saturday, May 13, 2017. If you want to start doing some of your own research on basketball-reference.com, I’ve updated the existing NBA extension to show WNBA FanDuel points per game and per 36 minutes. The ‘FD’ column header on the far right will appear for the ‘Per Game’ and ‘Per 36 Minutes’ tables on the individual player and team pages. You can also see FanDuel points for past games by viewing any boxscore.

    How to Install

    If you already have the Basketball Reference extension for NBA, it will update automatically to Version 1.5, which includes the WNBA support. If you don’t have the extension yet, click here to install.

    DraftKings Lobby Updates

    DraftKings added a new ‘Style’ header in the lobby to account for Weekend Golf (and possibly other contest types). This change required a few changes to the extension, in order for the margin and overlay to be calculated correctly. The display will look no different than before. Version 1.4.5 is the latest release for the DraftKings Tools.

    FanDuel Lobby Updates

    FanDuel also decided to redesign its lobby this week and has been slowly rolling it out to select users. The new lobby is quite a bit different than the old lobby, and I had to revise the extensions in order for the rake and overlay calculations to show up in the new lobby. This software update will work no matter which lobby layout you have, and all of contest details calculations should now work for UK users, too! If you already have the FanDuel Tools installed, they should update automatically to version 4.2.

    Here are some screenshots of the new design:

    The contest details popup will look like so:

    Notice that I have added the percentage of the prize pool that goes to first place in this release. You can see this info by clicking on an individual contest. That’s it for now! Feel free to send any questions or suggestions for new extensions my way!

    Yet another FanDuel release was made on the morning of May 15, to fix the salary cap calculator for WNBA and display the margin/overlay on a window resize.

    I added the extension. Then went to Basketball Reference. I am not seeing the FD points column.

    You may need to restart Chrome. It’s working for me.

    Can you make the margin and overlay changes to the Firefox extension as well? Thank you!

    Yes, laggard, an update was made for FanDuel, but that software has to go through a longer approval process in Firefox than in Chrome. I can give you a status update on Firefox sometime next week because it should be ready soon. Additionally, updating the DraftKings extension to work on Firefox is high on the priority list.

    Here’s the latest Firefox update (for Fanduel). Firefox is a release behind because it takes longer to go through the approval process.
