    I know there is another thread going on about how Draftkings removed the Sunday night game from the main slate. However today when my league contest didn’t get auto sent out I also see they totally removed the Sunday / Monday slate. So now the only non 2 game slate which includes both the Sunday and Monday night games is the full week 16 game one.

    I run a league that wants to play every game but hates the idea of needing to lock i a lineup by Thursday so the Sunday / Monday slate was perfect for us and that is what everyone agreed to play. Now that slate is not offered and people are piseed at me for changing the rules mid season about wanting to include the Monday night game but not Thursday.

    The response I got from Draftkings was this is a temporary change this week in an effort to make it a more appealing game for the users. That is fine if yhey don’t want to offer public games for this slate but I since salaries are already made for all 16 games why can’t they allow users to make custom slates to include the games they want for private league contests. Now that would be a feature that is actually appealing to users like me who get annoyed by removing slate options mid season.

    If you all trust each other you can work around it by playing the Thursday slate, but tell everyone to pick only from the Sunday-Monday games. Then they can edit their lineups before 1 pm lock Sunday.

    There is a Sunday/Monday slate available on DK.

    The only Sunday/ Monday slate they offer is the 2 game one. I like the full slate minus Thursday as some people in our league have issues getting lineups in by Thursday. I am guessing it will be back next week since there is not a London game. Oh well we are going to have to make due this week with the 14 game Sunday only slate.

    That would work but most people are so busy during the week there would for sure be a couple that miss getting a dummy lineup in by tonight which is why we exclude that game. I know it only takes 2 seconds to enter a dummy lineup and edit it Sunday morning but people still have an issue with the Thursday lock. Ideally we would just play the full slate every week but Thursday creates too many headaches.

    Same situation for me, I hate this change and will have to consider other sites in future seasons for the league.

    Failed experiment by DK IMHO.

    We should expect to see the Sunday night game return to the main slate next week if DK has any sense of sanity in maintaining a valuable client base.

    So after all the complaints Draftkings decided to add the Sunday / Monday slate back in this afternoon. Too bad it is too late as I just got everyone to agree to play the 14 game Sunday only slate and I am not trying to change things last minute.

    DK has done this in the past where the hold off the Sun/Mon slate til later. Its a good idea to hold some entry fees back on your part. Whoever makes these decisions for DK are a real……………..

    DK changed player prices for the Primetime slate. Russ Willson is now $8000 and Kareem Hunt is $9400. This screws up my lineups so I’m withdrawing from these contests.

  • ElwoodB

    … which means the same players have two different prices on the same weekend depending on slate. I don’t like that!
