    Sorry if this has been asked already but is Fanduel having WNBA this year? I see its in the lobby under sports not currently in season.

  • KindGuy

    Charles going off. Damn.

    I’m a big fan of the WNBA being the newest product to DFS. It’s basketball, on a smaller scale than the NBA seeing that there are 12 teams. This allows you to continue practicing your craft in the “off season”. My only knock is the lack of effort FanDuel seemed to put into this. They basically put the product up, priced the players, and forgot about it. Two players have been deemed out for the year ahead of the slate and no where on their app can you see that. Less than 10% of the players actually of new under their profile. At the very least, update the status as far as being a GTD or OUT. Plum and Bird will really the only ones with tags by their names when there as a handful of other players whose status was uncertain.

    I picked Stewart in a lineup, and there was no status change by her name even though the Storm’s official twitter had her ruled out over an hour before lineups lock. The WNBA will only go as far as FanDuel wants to take it, and they dropped the ball early on. I know its the first slate, but I expected better.

    I think RotoWire does the player card and out notifiers stuff. At least they do for other sports. So I wouldn’t put it fully on the site, but hopefully they’ll push for better updates. Not to be a total dick but that kind of stuff helps those who use more than just the site for research. Use Twitter or whatever and we have an advantage over those who can’t bother to do the additional research.

    Stewart was Red and it said out around a half hour before lock…I had her in both my lu’s and switched her out when I saw that.

    Yesterday was pretty crazy though as I found some info, made a lineup, then started poking around and found like half the people weren’t playing lol some out for the entire season and it wasn’t reflected as of yesterday, I think most of those were updated though….it started to feel like picking 7 players that were active was going to feel like a win.
    Kind of feels like when they had college basketball.

  • KindGuy

    Montgomery going off and very low owned. Gonna get a lot of minutes wow.

    Coffey is killing me. Didn’t know she was a rookie.

  • Gus_Chiggins

    Joining this board late, but if anyone is following the 5-man that erupted from the twitter beef, I hope Seth Yates takes it down. If not, Tommy G comes in last.

    Very true! I recently moved to a state that doesn’t allow FanDuel, so I’ve only been able to play free contests, such as the free tip-off today. Had I been able to put money in my research would have been much more deliberate, versus just what was on the surface! I didn’t see anything about Stewart being out until it was too late and that’s partly my fault, but no indication of a player potentially being out until she was out was to common place for the first WNBA games of the year.

    If the WNBA wants people to take their game more serious, they need to do it themselves. The first NBA games of the regular season is like a national holiday, where this WNBA slate feels like NBA preseason, with so many players not suiting up for whatever reason.

    LOL seriously. Have a marginal sport with almost no info and dont allow late swap? Ok

  • beare

    wheres best place find injury news for wnba??? fandual did a horrible job for day 1

  • KindGuy

    Yea the no late swap is a bummer. My laptop shut off 5 minutes before lock and by the time I restarted it, it was like 4:58pm. I scrambled to put a lineup together only to find out there is no late swap. Smh.

    Build better laptops

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Apparently I failed – have Adams and apparently she isn’t playing?
    Guess I got mislead by this lengthy article from a CT paper talking about her preseason performances and being a key to the season…oh well…
    Just stinks since of the two lineups that’s the higher score and like 8 points from the cash line…

    I can’t imagine this is the way you’d want to roll out a new product…
    Not a good look for everyone involved.

  • bigwillie20

    LOL, just looked at the lineup I had in the free contest.

    McBride-OUT 38.2% owned
    Stewart-OUT 34.7%
    Ogwumike-OUT 30.6%

  • pick6er

    I’ll definitely give WNBA a gpp run here and there. But I’m going to wait a few games to see rates, ppm, etc. From the comments I’ve seen, looks like today was as big of a dart throw in the dark as possible.

  • rttemple

    Never before, never again

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Min cashed at least with the 0 from Adams…
    Would have been way cooler if I picked Jones from Ct at pretty much the same price point…all things considered I’ll take break even though, just a bummer when literally anyone who got in a game would have helped me (assuming no one threw up a negative lol)

    Like most of DFS how much I play will depend on profitability, but without knowing that yet my guess is this is only something g I’d throw an entry into on days where I’m around the house and there isn’t much else going on…

  • jokerswild22

    Extremely easy cash today.

    Would imagine the softness goes down soon as people who were inactive were over 20%. But I’ll keep scooping up the money until then.

    Is Monique Currie the sister of Steph and Seth Curry? I’m only asking because this question reflects my knowledge of the WNBA by making me look like an overall idiot. Which I am, because I spent $3 on this and I would have a better chance of return with a scratch off ticket.

    Differently spelled last name might be a clue.

  • salarycapfantasy

    22 lineups. $67 entry fees, $223.50 in winnings including 9th place in that big $3. Ready for Sunday.

  • frugal

    Wish FD contests were available in Texas.

  • KindGuy

    Bankroll down to 58 cents on FD. But I do have one entry into the $1 GPP with $80 to first.

    Let’s do this.
