I am brand new to fantasy sports and have never played a contest before and would greatly appreciate insight into answering some questions I have before I decide to sign up and join your site.
I have searched for definitive answers via websites, forums, etc… and was unable to find answers to my questions that made any sense to me.
Regarding selecting a daily fantasy football roster or lineup across multiple time-framed contests.
Simply put, You have your Sunday 1PM contests, 4:30PM and evening 8:30PM contests, Monday Night contest and Thursday night contest.
Now – Here is where the confusion for me remains…
These questions are specific to DraftKings DFF, I’m not sure if this would also apply to the other DFS sites like FanDuel, Fantasy Aces etc…
I emailed DraftKings support multiple times with the contents of this post and was initially told by the rep that they were unable to give me any information on how to put a roster together. So I’m hoping that some kind people here may be able to help me understand this process so I can play, at least knowing that I am selecting my rosters in the correct format.
While selecting my roster: Let’s say it’s Sunday Morning prior to the first set of Sunday 1PM match-ups
1) If I am going to participate in a few Early contests, a few later contests and the late contest.
For my first contests (1PM contests), am I only selecting a football roster of players based on the competing teams for the 1PM time slot or should I be selecting players for my roster based on my research that show some of my picks are playing in later games as well?
Let’s say @ 1PM the Eagles play the Giants – Chargers play the Saints – Ravens play the Bengals etc…
and the 430PM games Steelers play the Jets – Falcons play the Chiefs – 49ers play the Seahawks and the Sunday Night game is Rams play the Bills
QUESTION: (Hypothetical Matchups)
Would this be a correct way to construct my roster? (Using team names instead of players to be clear) see below:
QB: Eagles (1PM game)
RB: Chiefs (4:30PM game)
RB: Jets (4:30PM game)
WR: Ravens (1PM game)
WR: Rams (8:30PM game)
WR: Bengals (1PM game)
TE: Saints (1PM game)
Flex: 49ers (4:30PM game)
DST: Bills (8:30PM game)
If this correct, when would my overall score be posted? How does this all work?
If this is correct, and the 1PM contest I have entered has ended, but all of my players have not played as of yet, is my roster still active in that contest or the remaining contests that I have entered for that day?
If this is NOT a correct way to construct my roster, should I be concerned only with selecting players for a roster that that are playing at a particular time (ie: 1PM) and synchronizing the 1PM players
with only the 1PM contests?
I am also interested in participating in the Sunday Night, Monday Night and Thursday Night contests as well.
According to the contest rules that I have read on your website Quoted: “ Rosters will consist of 9 players and must include players from at least 2 different NFL teams, and representing at least 2
different football games.”
Would someone be kind enough to give a couple of examples as how one would go about playing in a Sunday Night contest (1 game – 2 teams) – Monday Night contest (1 game – 2 teams) – Thursday
Night contest (1 game – 2 teams) as well as the contests I see listed as [Sun-Mon], [Thurs] on the Draftkings site?
I would greatly appreciate any and all information that would help for me to understand how I am able to enter into these contests. Examples would be extremely helpful.
Please be as clear and as detailed as possible in your responses so that I am able to understand exactly how to participate and play correctly.
I’m looking forward to your responses.
Thank you kindly for your time and input
