We will not be offering Late Swap or Best Ball formats for the 2019 NBA season. However, we are returning to our traditional NBA format. That means your lowest scoring player in your lineup will no longer have their score dropped, so all 9 of your players’ scores count. As a reminder, NBA contests don’t have late swap and your lineup will lock at the start of the first game.
Here are a few tips to help you avoid late scratches:
1. Starting Indicators
If a player has a green checkmark next to their name, it means he’s in the starting lineup the coach submitted.
2. Push Notifications
Turn on push notifications to get late-breaking news on NBA players.
3. Download the Scout App
FanDuel Scout syncs with your lineups and makes it easy to follow players you’ve picked.
4. Research Player Rest Schedules
Predicting when players will rest is part of the game. So do your research on team, coach, and player rest patterns.
