    Is it just me or is FD keep messing with the player pool?

    How is dylan larkin available for DET first 2 games and now he is not listed in player pool for Tue slate

    I dont understand how a player can be missing from the player pool if he has already been added for their first 2 games

    Its frustrating when you have research all planned out for certain lines and then the player you want is not in the player pool when he has been playing 1st line minutes and in the player pool on previous slates

  • Aalbanese102089

    He’s definitely not there.

  • Agoraphobia

    It’s not just you. There were two players I wanted today who weren’t even listed, and one of them was very highly touted on the RG expert consensus page.

    What is up with FD?

  • madmanjayWV

    they got bigger fish to fry than worrying about game analytics….just send a SUPPORT TICKET and request it goes to the Product Operations Team (POT guys)…they’ll get right on top of it for you #CHRISTIAN-KIRK

  • jm748227

    I have submitted a support ticket the past 3 days involving different players.

    My issue with it is, he was already in DET player pool the previous 2 games and now is missing.If he wasnt in the pool from start of season i wouldnt care as much but to be able to play him successfully i may add the first 2 games and now not this one frustrates me since all they should have to do is copy the player pool over and every previous player should still be in there.

    I was just sitting down to build tomorrow’s lineup. I noticed the same thing right away. It is extremely frustrating. I kind of understand Mike Condon and Matthew O’Connor not being available last night, but to not have Larkin after he’s already been in the pool or to not start the year with Tomas Tatar is really inexcusable.

  • ScottyP33

    Am I missing Oscar Lindberg too? Robby Fabbri? Both those guys were already in the player pool also.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. First they leave out Tatar now they remove Larkin.

    How can we get Tatar into the player pool? Oh, let’s just scratch Larkin and send him to the minors to make room.

    These are major errors by fanduel and shows they dont care about their NHL product. They dont have any employee that checks the player pool before contests are posted?

    We call this Blackhawks cap management. All 2 way players to Rockford on off days.

    Their response from support came across as oh well, we will have him in next time. Obviously I didnt expect them to change the contest after posting was more concerned about how it even happens in first place. Are there no quality control checks in place?

    Thank you for contacting FanDuel customer support!

    We are aware that Larkin is not available in the player pool for the Tuesday contest. With that being said, once a player pool is created and posted, it cannot legally be changed.

    However, we are working on having him added to the player pool for future contests, and apologize for the inconvenience. All sports are important to our site, as our mission is to create the best fan-experience that we can for all our users.

    As always, please feel free to let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I would be glad to help.

  • wsophock

    Well if they can’t do anything legally to change it.. then there’s not much that can be done.. At the end of the day that means no one can pick him so that’s not a disadvantage for anyone when it’s the same across the board

  • wsophock

    Makes me think before I decide “hmm I want to try another DFS site…” FD went much lower on my ranking decisions for this

  • ankrumfishing

    I’ve also submitted a ticket. Absolutely ridiculous for a first line player to be excluded from the pool, especially one that has generated a big FPPG so far this year. I was counting on him being there, and CHEAP!!

  • maxeernst

    DFS sites have never really cared about NHL guys. It’s an ancillary offering for them. They make infinitely more money on NFL and NBA. Was hoping this season we’d see bigger prizepools and, in turn, better/more attention on the sport. The former seems to be true, but I hope both can become true and the prizepools can continue to grow.

    FanDuel really needs to get their crap together in NHL. First Tatar, then Larkin and now Victor Hedman isn’t even in the player pool tomorrow night!!! How does that even happen???!!!

  • ScottyP33

    I know he’s hurt, but why isn’t Nicklas Backstrom in the player pool on FD? They typically don’t exclude injured players from the pool. The guy only had 60 assists last year.

    And now I see he took the morning skate. Nice work FD.

    They’ve said he will likely play in the last game of this road trip (3 or 4 games from now can’t remember), but I think it’s pretty much a sure thing he doesn’t play in the next 2 games.

  • ScottyP33

    Max he took line rushes this morning with Johansson and Williams.

    While I don’t agree with just removing injured players, Hedman isn’t playing tonight, so it’s not as big of a deal.

  • DirtyDylz

    Trying to get a head start on research as I have won a few tickets into the “Light The Lamp” on DK tomorrow… Pretty rattled about seeing no Nicklas Backstrom. Wasted a good amount of time trying to figure out who I wanted for Washington exposure, all for not I guess.

  • ydomes

    Anyone know if FD is having a big tourney to compete with “Light The Lamp” on DK? I remember last week FD had a $100k tourney with a $25 entry fee but haven’t heard anything about this week.
