    Me too. I started some research and have been bugging them on twitter about when they’re gonna start offering it. Hopefully, it’s this Saturday!

    This NBA season is going to be GREAT. From a real life perspective and DFS one too.

    I’m not going to play the preseason (nearly ruined my NBA reg season bankroll last year playing it)

    But I am looking forward to regular season. Been going through the teams and picking out which players are in for larger roles this season. I want to play them before their prices go up.

    So far (depending on their initial price) I like: Hood & Gobert (with Hayward and Hill gone), Schroeder & Bazemore (with Milsap & Howard gone), D’Angelo Russell (probably hated being traded), Myles Turner & Thaddeus Young (with George gone), Dennis Smith Jr (sounds like he’s starting from day 1 from what I’ve read), Rondo (playing with Holiday, Cousins, and Davis).

    I think early on there will be a ton of value to put with a couple studs.

    And I’m curious to see how Gay fits in on SA. Beverly on LAC. Butler and Teague in MIN. Melo and George playing with Russ in OKC. And the Cavs just got really interesting with Derek Rose, IT, Crowder, and possibly Wade joining the mix.

    Can’t wait!

    I forgot about him, lol, and I watched a lot of Sixers games last year. They are going to be good if everyone stays healthy.

    I doubt I will be playing the preseason… gotta save that BR for the regular season beginning the 17th.

    Cant wait to enjoy the wonderful discussions on the forums during game night.

  • KindGuy

    Anyone know if DK will start offering contests immediately at the beginning of the preseason? Preseason starts this Saturday.

  • KindGuy

    So it looks like DK won’t be offering contests for the start of the preseason. Last year, they had posted the contests on Wednesday afternoon. Doubt they have anything up tomorrow or Friday for Saturday…..

    Has anything been addressed about bringing back late swap this season?

    I think they will be bringing back late swap this season.

    After the backlash they got last season I’d assume late swap will be back.

    I hope at least one site keeps no late swap.

  • hendry

    I think the real reason they are bring back late swap is because of the fail of the merger between FD and DK.

    The Saturday slate has been posted on DK!!!!

  • KindGuy

    LET’S GOOOOOOOOOO

    set it and forget it is a cop out. just set you lineups and go about your business, there you go. no late swap.

    You are hurting your EV if you don’t pay attention to your lineups, after lock, on a site that allows late swap. It’s not that simple.

  • dtrain187

    Alright lets talk strategy. It seems like starters play around 17-20 minutes in preseason, depending on the coach of course. I don’t imagine the warriors starters to get more than 17 minutes or so, so I’m digging Swaggy P and maybe Casspi.

  • IronMonkey415

    David West could be playable as well.

  • Lathum

    NBA preseason, ugh…

    Nothing like figuring out if Kay Felder will see the bulk of minutes.

    2013 FFFC Finalist, 2013 DFFC Finalist

    • 2013 FanDuel WFFC Finalist

    Mon. Oct 2nd is the first real slate to play – I would think both sites will have slates up for that one.

    Considering they have Saturday’s slate up, I think they’ll be running it for the entirety of the preseason.
