FanDuel fantasy football managers rejoice! There is now a FanDuel late swap feature.
The FanDuel late swap feature means you have more chances to choose starting players for your fantasy lineups. Starting players are your best choice when it comes to creating the most effective lineups. This is because they are definitely out on the field creating point opportunities.
Previously, all lineups locked as soon as the first match of the day began. Now, with the FanDuel late swap feature, fantasy managers can make last-minute swaps for starting players, when lineups are confirmed shortly before the match starts.
Developing the FanDuel Late Swap feature
DFS players have been wanting the FanDuel late swap mechanic for a while now. Other sites, such as FanDuel competitor DraftKings, have had such features for a while. The feature gives fantasy football managers better control over their lineups, which can only be a good thing!
FanDuel’s International Director of Marketing Karol Corcoran said of the new development:
“The late swap feature is one that we were always planning to add to our contests. Having listened to our users, we realised that this was a high priority to them.
“When managers announce their lineups shortly before match starts, users can now swap out players in favour of others who are named in clubs’ starting 11, optimising their fantasy team’s opportunity to perform well and rack up points.”
The late swap feature is applicable to all daily and weekly FanDuel fantasy football contests.
